  • The Mary Winkler case highlights just how lop-sided our legal system is when when dealing with domestic violence cases. It is very wrong that a woman is allowed to blast her husband in the back with a shotgun and then go to court and blame him for all of their marital problems and accuse a dead man of things he can't possible accept or deny. He receives the death penalty and she gets a slap on the wrist. The opportunity for women to take advantage of this weakness in the system is great. She is nothing more than a cold blooded killer who said what she wanted to in court because her opponent was dead.

  • I could get on a roll with this subject! Pay your bail, go to court at the least 3 times, and a slap on the wrist (if) you get that much. You can abuse, stalk, harass, whatever you wish and there no lesson learned because you don't have to pay for your mistakes. Heaven forbid if your a stalked/harassed man....You had to have done something to provoke it! Lets see what was it the DA said??? This kind of situation usually goes both ways! What usually is and what REALLY is are two different things...
