The reason this is outrageous is that with the same negligent action he could have killed her or someone else. In Texas, though, if you're a white old man and do something stupid with a gun, you're very likely to get off.A grandfather is feeling guilty after he accidentally shot his three-year-old granddaughter. The man says he was aiming at a stray cat but the bullet hit the girl instead.Gary Van Ness admits he shot the girl as she stood behind his home with her father. He says the neighborhood is overrun with strays. And, some have even snuck into his home.“The cats are brave enough to come in there and got him a couple of loaves of bread,” he said.Van Ness noticed a cat by his shed and grabbed his .22 caliber shot-gun and aimed. “I took the opportunity to shoot it,” he said.He didn’t know his son and granddaughter were in the same area. The bullet went right through Brianna’s leg.Investigators consider the shooting to be an accident and no charges are expected.
This is the ironic opposite of the proverbial Texas Justice.
