All too often though, a sizeable proportion of the heterosexual male population think that it may be "understandable", if a bit extreme. So the penalty should be about the same as for mere common assault, that the killer was provoked by being defiled. She was asking for it.
The result is that bails and bonds are set at absurdly low levels, and killers get to walk free in the community, sometimes for years. And sometimes with the prosecution lapsing. About the same treatment they'd get for unlawfully killing any other animal.
From Out and About :
Last night, WREG-TV in Memphis reported that the man who was charged with the February 16, 2006, murder of Tiffany Berry, has now been arraigned on a second murder charge. On Thursday, authorities in Shelby County charged DeAndre Blake with the murder of his own two year old daughter.Yes, that's right, a killer was free for two and a half years. Free to kill again - a child this time. A full human being, not a third class citizen, whose death was "understandable".
At the time of this second murder, Blake was walking the streets of Memphis as a free man on a $20,000 bond. According to Berry's family, Blake admitted he had killed Berry because he did not like the way she had "touched" him.
