When Stanley Cook was parking his car outside his East
Point, Ga., apartment, a man put a gun to his head and demanded
money. Cook pushed the pistol aside and pulled a revolver from a
bag in the car. He fired on his assailant, killing him. Although
Cook was ordered to appear in court on involuntary manslaughter
charges, police expected the charges to be dropped.
