As I ran through my news thread this shooting stopped me cold. This is our present and future, senseless killing.
America's present and future: Shooting and killing
This video had a visceral impact on me today. It is very sad that in the name of ideology there have been so few restrictions put on guns.
On November 5th, Chad Read had an argument with his ex-wife's new partner, William Kyle Carruth. It was some sort of custody battle. After the argument got heated, Carruth went into the home, retrieved an assault-looking rifle, and shot Read after he grabbed pushed him off.
With all the video available, Texas law officials have not arrested the killer. Instead, it appears that they will call it justifiable homicide.
According to Lubbock Avalanche-Journal,
No charges or arrests have been made yet in the Nov. 5 shooting death of 54-year-old Chad Read at a home in the in the 2100 block of 90th Street.
Meanwhile, investigators have turned over their files to the Texas Attorney General's Office, who is handling any potential prosecution in the case after the Lubbock County District Attorney Sunshine Stanek recused her office from the case, citing that the suspect in the shooting was related to a local elected official who could be called as a witness.
The shooter, who is listed as a suspect in police reports, has not been identified by law enforcement officials who have cited the states' public information laws that prohibit them from identifying suspects if there is no ongoing threat to the public.
However, records filed in civil court have identified the shooter as land developer William Kyle Carruth, the ex-husband of Anne Marie Carruth, the judge of the 72nd District Court in Lubbock and Crosby counties.
This is America. We can solve all our problems with a gun.
