Man Who Killed NASCAR Star Killed By Cops

Trent William Millsap

( – It is far too easy to get caught up in the numbers and statistics when it comes to the skyrocketing level of crime — especially murders — while losing sight of the fact that each of those statistics is a real human tragedy.

That was certainly the case when racecar driver and NASCAR star Bobby East was stabbed to death by a homeless man while East was at a gas station pump.

But, one small measure of justice has taken place in that the man who killed East is now dead himself — taken out by a SWAT team.

As Breitbart carried the news in “Homeless Man Who Allegedly Murdered NASCAR Star Bobby East Killed in SWAT Raid”:

“The homeless man who allegedly murdered NASCAR star Bobby East, 37, at a California gas station has been killed in a SWAT raid.

“The murder occurred when the homeless man, Trent William Millsap, allegedly stabbed East in the chest as he was fueling up his vehicle. East was pronounced dead after being transported to a nearby hospital.” [emphasis added]

As for the killer:

“Millsap reportedly died in a SWAT raid two days later after executing a warrant to arrest him at an Anaheim apartment, according to the Orange County District Attorney’s Office. Millsap reportedly died [in a shootout] as police tried to arrest him. He had also been accused of stabbing another man at a 76 gas station before allegedly murdering East.” [emphasis added]

One fan of East’s said of Millsap, “Good riddance.”
