Rapid Retribution

When he was kidnaped at gunpoint from a motel in Oldsmar, Fla., Gregory Longley, 20, had to go along with his captors: they were armed, and there were three of them. As they drove him down the street, Longley, in the back seat with one of the men, saw his captor put his gun on his lap so he could send a text message. Longley grabbed the gun and shot the man. He then shot the kidnaper in the front passenger seat, and then put the gun to the head of the driver and told him to stop. When he did, Longley bailed out. The 18-year-old driver was uninjured; the 17-year-old front-seat accomplice was hospitalized with non-life-threatening injuries, and the back-seat 18-year-old gunman was killed. The three teens were seeking a man they had a dispute with, and grabbed Longley when they couldn’t find him. (RC/Tampa Tribune) ...The wrong man was the right man for the right job.
