"A jury in Bexar County, Texas just acquitted Ezekiel Gilbert of charges that he murdered a 23-year-old Craigslist escort—agreeing that because he was attempting to retrieve the $150 he'd paid to Frago, who wouldn't have sex with him, his actions were justified."

Texas is a ****hole and needs to be excised from the union, along with most of the rest of the south.

Yes! And even entire blue states like Florida.

oops hey pony what do they put in the water down there?

Texas actress arrested in ricin case, sources say

CNN) -- A Texas actress has been arrested in connection with allegedly ricin-tainted letters that were mailed last month to President Barack Obama and New York City Mayor Michael Bloomberg, federal law enforcement sources said Friday.

Investigators believe Shannon Rogers Richardson, also known as Shannon Rogers Guess, mailed the letters, a law enforcement official with knowledge of the investigation said.

The letters to Obama, Bloomberg and to an anti-illegal-gun foundation that Bloomberg founded were mailed from Shreveport, Louisiana, last month, federal authorities say.

Richardson has had minor roles in TV series, including "The Walking Dead" and "The Vampire Diaries."

The FBI found "very low concentrations" of ricin on the letters, a spokesman said last month.

Those that say otherwise are either ignorant or just plain jealous.
Um, lol.

Do you know how ignorant you sound claiming Texas is the best place to live in America when you have only lived in three other states your whole life?

That is like saying Texas Roadhouse has the best steak on the planet without going into any of the fine ma and pa diners down there.

Good grief.

Not surpised that you have the attitude you do. Typical.

So says the guy from Michigan.......who's most noteworthy city which was once dubbed the "Paris of the West" now crumbles underneath the excesses created by the enforcement of the belief system that hot-ham gloriously espouses here within every political thread on the great Mane...............................http://www.freakonomics.com/2011/03/...dying-quickly/

"After New Orleans, which lost 29 percent of its population in the wake of Hurricane Katrina, Detroit’s 25 percent loss is the largest percentage drop in the history of an American city with more than 100,000 people. Just ten years ago, Detroit was the tenth largest city in the country. Demographers at the Brookings Institute now believe it might have fallen all the way to 18th, with just 713,777 people. That’s the smallest it’s been since 1910, just before the automotive boom brought millions of well-paid jobs and turned Detroit into the Motor City. It’s hard to imagine, but up until 1950, Detroit was the fourth biggest city in America. In 1960, it had the highest per-capita income in the U.S."

Every state has wierd jury trial outcomes. Look at Calif we let OJ walk. When you leave it up to a jury you will often get head scratching decisions.

Yup.

Let's point out one or two quirks and pigeon hole the second largest state in the union. This is but a speck in the giant state. Stop generalizing and get your heads out of your asses.

Unfortunately, I think that had much more to do with race than it did the evidence.

I love how cut poses as this easy going, to each their own hipster musician on one hand, and then a careless, soulless penis on the other.

He's got a personality for every occasion, it seems.

A man for all seasons.

What is misogynistic about his statement? Was she not in fact a hooker? Had she not been a hooker, she would not have been there to try and rob him, thus getting shot in the process of her crime. This is something that can happen to a "ho". That or being murdered by a serial killer, beaten by pimp, herself robbed...so on and so forth. In this case, I'd say not being a ho is definitely something to take from this story.
Besides all that, he didn't say all or most women are hos,...I'm sorry but I just don't see it.
Oh well, guess I'm misogynistic, brb gonna go disparage some women and hit my wife.

He shot her once in the back and once in the neck and then said he didn't intend to kill her... and the Texas jury bought it.

Jury acquits escort shooter
By Michelle Mondo, Staff Writers
Updated 10:12 pm, Wednesday, June 5, 2013



Ezekiel Gilbert denied he meant to kill Craigslist escort.

A Bexar County jury on Wednesday acquitted Ezekiel Gilbert of murder in the death of a 23-year-old Craigslist escort.

Gilbert, 30, embraced defense attorneys Bobby Barrera and Roy Barrera Sr. with tears in his eyes after the not guilty verdict was read aloud by state District Judge Mary Román.

Outside the courtroom, Gilbert thanked God, the Barrera family and the jury for being able to “see what wasn't the truth” and for the “second chance.”

Had he been convicted, he could have faced up to life in prison for the slaying of Lenora Ivie Frago who died about seven months after she was shot in the neck and paralyzed on Christmas Eve 2009. Gilbert admitted shooting Frago.

“I sincerely regret the loss of the life of Ms. Frago,” Gilbert said Wednesday. “I've been in a mental prison the past four years of my life. I have nightmares. If I see guns on TV where people are getting killed, I change the channel.”

The verdict came after almost 11 hours of deliberations that stretched over two days. The trial began May 17 but had a long hiatus after a juror unexpectedly had to leave town for a funeral.

During closing arguments Tuesday, Gilbert's defense team conceded the shooting did occur but said the intent wasn't to kill. Gilbert's actions were justified, they argued, because he was trying to retrieve stolen property: the $150 he paid Frago. It became theft when she refused to have sex with him or give the money back, they said.

Gilbert testified earlier Tuesday that he had found Frago's escort ad on Craigslist and believed sex was included in her $150 fee. But instead, Frago walked around his apartment and after about 20 minutes left, saying she had to give the money to her driver, he said.

That driver, the defense contended, was Frago's pimp and her partner in the theft scheme.

The Texas law that allows people to use deadly force to recover property during a nighttime theft was put in place for “law-abiding” citizens, prosecutors Matt Lovell and Jessica Schulze countered. It's not intended for someone trying to force another person into an illegal act such as prostitution, they argued.

Here's another good one: federal judge Edith Jones of Texas who the GOP has in the past touted for the Supreme Court.
