Wow

So, Mary Winkler shot her hubby in the back and killed him. Yet, she gets a light sentence and can visit her kids. She’ll be on Oprah. Dr. Helen brings the snark: Kill Your Husband–Get a House and Car. Seems her community has given her a cheap house and a car.

Wow.

Again, wow.

Update: Really, wow. I mean, it’s almost enough to make me lose faith in people.

    You have faith in people?

    That’s one of the reasons I carry a gun. 😉

    (for the PuSHers out there, that’s called sarcasm).

    Think that this “community” is just a bunch of married women who have also wanted, at one time or another, to kill their husbands? Let’s be careful, guys. 😉

    And this, ladies and gentlemen, is exactly why firearm crime is so rampant in America. It is not the guns. It is not the NRA. It is not us wingnut whacko gun fetishists. It is the fact that our judicial system lets people off for these kinds of crimes with a slap on the wrist and an admonishment to behave in the future, and society as a whole idolizes them. Crime is nothing more than a cost-benefit analysis – if the cost (i.e. punishment) is sufficiently low that the benefit outweighs it, people will commit the crime. And since our judicial system has apparently forgotten how to punish people…

    Oprah is smart. Winkler’s book will be a best seller. Will Holly Hunter play Winkler in the movie?

    You have to realize that, in the eyes of the antis, this makes perfect sense. It’s not her fault. The evil gun made her do it. Once the gun is out of her hand, all it takes is a big group hug and she’ll be a reformed woman.

    Piss on that hairy-lipped harpy.

    […] Winkler shot her husband in the back. He’s dead, of course, but from the looks of things Mary is very much alive. Not only is she out of jail, but she’s living in a house provided for her by her community […]

    I almost went Elvis on the TV when I heard that back shooting scumbag say her kids should be with “100% of their family”.

    Her deceased husband was a pervert who abused her for years.

    As Chris Rock says about OJ, I don’t approve of what she did, but I understand.

  10. Les Jones Says:

    Chris, what evidence is there of abuse other than Mary Winkler’s word?

  11. Yu-Ain Gonnano Says:

    You mean besides being a Christian Minister (founding members of the Oppressive Patriarchy, doncha know)

    /sarcasm

    seriously…

    I don’t care if he beat her every night, shooting someone in the back in their sleep is not self-defense.

    Les-

    I thought that she produced some kinky clothes at the trial, but the jury apparently gave her word a good bit of creedence.

    At least the fact that she got off as lightly as she did after shooting him in the back would lead me to believe that the jury found her credible.

    I have no patience for a bully, and apparently she didn’t either.

    I was in West Tn when they trial was going on (trying to not pay much attention to it, actually), but the local media reports certainly made it sound as though he was very abusive and more than a little kinky (wanting her to dress up and act like a hooker, or something like that).

  13. Yu-Ain Gonnano Says:

    What’s wrong with wanting your wife to role-play as a hooker? Just ’cause you are adults doesn’t mean you can’t play dress-up.

    *not that role-playing is *my* thing, but if you find that kind of thing fun, have at it.

    She didn’t find it to be fun, apparently.

    Actually, when it comes to fantasy and roll playing action, it’s hard to beat this: http://www.foxnews.com/story/0,2933,297990,00.html

    “I thought that she produced some kinky clothes at the trial”

    Assuming that’s true – if a husband buys his wife sexy lingerie (or she buys herself some, and claims it was at his request) that’s grounds for her murdering him and claiming self defense?

    If he could see her tit, you must acquit!

  17. Griff Says:

    I live near this mess and that murderer produced NO credible evidence that she was abused. She did pull an O.J – (S)he with the best lawyer wins. Not to mention the mouthbreather that was the jury foreman is a simpleminded twit (personal experience) that beleived Winkler because he had to believe that there was a reason for her to do that other than the fact that she was conned by a Nigerian Scam and didn’t want her husband to find out.
