Daily News – A Texas john who shot a Craigslist escort dead after she took $150 of his cash but refused to have sex has been cleared of murder. Ezekiel Gilbert, 30, was facing life in jail for the 2009 Christmas Eve killing of Lenora Frago, 23, outside his San Antonio apartment. Gilbert used a AK-47 assault rifle to spray his alleged victim’s car with bullets as she was driven away at 4:15 a.m. by her alleged pimp, Christopher Perkins. Frago was hit in the neck. Left paralyzed and brain damaged from the shooting, she was hooked up to a respirator for several months until her family pulled the plug in July 2010. A Bexar County Texas court jury on Thursday took 11 hours to acquit Gilbert — saying his actions were justified because he was simply trying to retrieve stolen property. This is because state residents are permitted “to use deadly force to recover property during a nighttime theft.” Gilbert’s defense attorneys argued he did not intend to kill Frago and only wanted to blow out the car tires and get back his cash. They also said the shooting was justified, as he thought sex was included with the fee.
Don’t mess with Texas! This story is wild. This whore would’ve been better off stealing in Saudi Arabia than Texas – but, in fairness, Ezekiel Gilbert was playing within the rules. Rules that are available for all to know. Sure, maybe the rule sucks, but it is what it is. It’s like the Hack-A-Shaq. You can hate it all you want. Call it ridiculous, bush league, or whatever else. Doesn’t change the fact that it’s perfectly legal. If you don’t like it, hit your free throws. Or in the case of hookers in Texas, if you don’t like getting mowed down by an AK-47, fuck your johns.
