I’m only surprised that she will serve any time for murdering her husband:
A preacher’s wife who claimed her husband abused her was convicted Thursday of voluntary manslaughter for shooting him…. Prosecutors had asked that Winkler be convicted of first-degree murder, but the jury settled on the lesser charge after deliberating for eight hours. She faces three to six years in prison….
Prosecution witness described Matthew Winkler as a good husband and father, and the couple’s 9-year-old daughter testified she never saw her father mistreat her mother. Mary Winkler also said under cross-examination that her husband did nothing for which he deserved to die.
You see, women can’t be held responsible for anything they do or say, because they are children. And while you certainly can take offense at my assertion that women are not equal to adult men if you wish, I note that I am merely stating an obvious and easily observable fact of the American legal system.
There is an example of this almost every day. Consider the following:
The New York woman who told investigators two men stabbed her and her 3-year-old son, leaving the boy in critical condition, in a purported robbery last week was arrested today on an attempted murder charge in the attack, police said.
After questioning, Franca Gasperetti, 43, of Floral Park, N.Y., admitted she “snapped” and stabbed herself and her son, Anthony, with a 12-inch kitchen knife “in a fit of rage” after “her affair with her husband’s friend had been exposed,” according to her arrest affidavit.
Based on the results of the Tennessee murder – excuse me, voluntary manslaughter – one can only expect that she’ll get probation, the house and custody of the child after the divorce.
