Yep! Being a female is sometimes a death sentence. Looks like what Repubuies are shooting for here.<quoted text>
As usual, your links don't work except the first one which is vague. But I think I get the gist of the story. Of course I agree with the charges. I don't know if they will stick, but I agree with them.
I'm all for doing whatever it takes to deter crime in our society. In the middle-east, if you get caught stealing something, they cut off your hand--and not in a hospital either. You get caught a second time, off comes your other hand. There is no third time. While it may sound cruel, that's why there is little theft in the middle-east.
Story above is, "5 suspects invaded a home in a small, mostly Military town near me. It was around 5:30 PM, late Jan, this year,so it was still light out. Homeowner/Renter? and his roommate were home, both College students. Homeowner shot two of the intruders, one died, one injured in Hospital. Other 3 got away, but were identified by the injured one. Greene County Prosecutors have charged all 4 with murder in the death of their accomplice along with Burglary, and other charges. Home owner/occupant not charged.
Not clear why they picked that particular home, likely a prior connection to Occupants, but no excuse, of course and now they are charged with murder.
