The district attorney's office will hopefully add a couple more charges including attempted murder and aggrivated assault with a deadly weapon. But the retarded cops who responded need to be shot in the stomach for having google eyes to the dirty *itch that pulled the trigger.

Arresting officer: Wow, she's hot, if i don't charge her with anything serious, maybe when she gets probation i can bend her over.

Typical authoritive mentality.

We don't know all the facts. IF ABUSED, HYPOTHETICALLY SPEAKING ! Any human who stays with any partner and is being abused deserves the abuse. There's always an option to leave ! ALWAYS !

But one fact is for sure. She's gonna be tossing some big momma's salad in prison sooner than later. She deserves any and all time that the judge is gonna hand to her.
My Question to her: Was it worth losing your freedom ? You did the job half-a*s'd, that in itself should add more prison time to your ignorant decision.
This entire thread is so riddled with assumptions and guesses I almost don't want to jump into the playpen- but this comment torqued me so badly that I had to: "Any human who stays with any partner and is being abused deserves the abuse." There are many ways that abusers control the abused, and stop them from leaving. The victim is constantly reminded that if the abuser can't get to them, they can get to them through someone they love. They are also controlled by the knowledge that there are varying degrees of abuse: a person who is verbally abused may stay because they know it could be physical, and a person who is physically abused may stay because it could be worse, or because it only happens once a week as opposed to once a day, or it could be torture, as opposed to being slapped occassionally. Some stay because they weren't taught as children to stand up for themselves- instead they were taught to turn the other cheek. Some weren't raised to feel worthy of better treatment. Some were taught that this is the way they were intended by God to be treated. Some are afraid they couldn't make it financially on their own, sometimes because the abuser tells them that. Sometimes fear of starving to death, or having your children starve to death, outweighs the fear of being slapped around every once in a while. For you to say that ANYONE deserves abuse is wrong, and is the kind of thinking that perpetuates the cycle of violence. Shame on you!

I was commenting on the very difficult to understand post.

Sorry, the story is not funny to me. I cannot pass judgement until I hear more facts

It just blows my mind to see how women try to justify and get all angry when another woman commits a crime and gets caught !

Guess what ladies, just cause you don't have balls doesn't mean you can't have your A*s's handed to you for committing crime ! Give this loser life in prison, where she belongs.

I was not justifying her crime. My argument with the poster was only in response to the comment about people deserving abuse. I am a firm believer that there is no good excuse for bad behavior, on anyone's part, including a victim's.

Of course she will claim this...but MOST domestic abuse is mutual and out of the non reciprocated domestic abuse, 70 % is by woman. Yes you read it correctly.

Mary Winkler got away with pre-mediated murder by using the abuse excuse in the absence of any evidence of abuse other then her word and the word of her feminist friends. She changed her story, saying she shot him by accident but then let him bleed to death for 20 min. and did not bother to call for help...after all, she disconnected the phone so he could not call either.

It will only be when we hold BOTH men and women equally accountable and responsible for their own actions that we can hope to find a solution to the problem of domestic violence. As it is, only one side is held accountable and although men are the victims of it as much as are women, there is NO help for abused men, billions of dollars for women.

I believe that abuse is pretty equal between the sexes. Though I have seen studies that men mainly use their hands and women are more likely to use a weapon...like a gun.

Pretty harsh judgment regarding victims of abuse. There are resource for abuse victims out there and if you had actually looked at any of them you would see the FIRST piece of advise they ALL give is to make an ESCAPE PLAN. Also some that are abused are literally fearing for their life, have been cut off from any support system and frankly it is the abusers plan to cut them off from any support system.

Victims that decide to get away don't always suceed and if they do aren't always "safe" I have helped friends in situations like these and trust me it isn't close to what you state.

Try volunteering at a shelter or hotline for abuse, get to know some of the victims and maybe your eyes will be opened.

To the story at hand, there is a lot of missing information, period. She could have been abused, she could have been the abuser. He could have threatened her one too many times, she could have decided she was done with him & off'd him. Nobody knows at this point. To the poster that wants to know why she is not being charged with premeditated murder, I would say the fact that she called 911 after shooting him would be a good indication. Premeditated murders don't usually call 911 right after they commit them.

Some form of domestic violence played a role no doubt, who was the abuser? Hard to say, although first indication is her deceased husband, but then again there is a lot of missing information folks.

Frankly all will have to wait for it to come out in the wash.
