A guy in Texas hired an escort through Craiglist. He gave her $150. She refused to sleep with him.
He shot her.
The 23-year-old woman, Lenora Ivie Frago, was paralyzed, and died 7 months later.
A jury just acquitted the guy, Ezekiel Gilbert, of her murder.
Why? Because the gun industry, which wants everything to do with guns made legal, helped pass a "Stand Your Ground" type law in Texas that allows you to use deadly force to protect your property in a nighttime theft, the $150 here being deemed the stolen property.
American voters really and finally have to choose what kind of world they want for their families. This is a horrible failure of justice and civilization. We may as well still have slaves and witch trials.
