Another Victory for Monogamy, Honesty, Marriage, and the American Legal System
In the heat of the moment, it’s perfectly reasonable to unload four bullets into another human being–but not to lie to one. That’s how it works in Texas, according to this article from CNN:
“… Darrell Roberson came home from a late-night card game to find his scantily clad wife with another man in a pickup in the driveway. Tracy Roberson was with her lover but cried rape, and her husband fired four shots into the truck as Devin LaSalle drove off, killing him.”
The wife was convicted Friday of involuntary manslaughter, and faces up to 20 years in prison.
All charges against the jealous husband who pulled the trigger were dropped!
On what legal grounds is this possible?
Temporary insanity? Heat of the moment?
Seriously, where are we? In a frat house?
