May She Rot in Hell

I read the most appalling news story today. In Fort Worth, a woman hit a homeless man and left him to die on her windshield. The story goes like this:

This evil bitch, who had been drinking and taking Ecstasy, hits a homeless man who becomes lodged in her broken windshield. He begs her to take him to a hospital. She ignores him, drives home with him still stuck in her windshield, parks in her garage, has sex with her boyfriend, and then waits two days for him to die. Her and three friends then dump his body. The kicker: he wouldn't have died if she had taken him to a hospital.

What gets me is that her attorney actually said, "She is not the monster that police and prosecutors are making her out to be. She was simply a frightened, emotionally distraught young woman who had an accident, panicked and made a wrong choice." I don't think this constitutes as a wrong choice. This was murder, plain and simple. To do something like this you have to be completely soulless. She said she went out to the garage and apologized to him, so I guess that makes it okay. He's begging with her not to let him die and to please take him to a hospital, but because she apologized, she's not a monster.

Stories like this make me sick to my stomach. How can people have such a disregard for others? What the hell happened to people? It seems that things like this happen all the time. I feel like we're headed for hell in a hand basket. She's in Texas where we have the death penalty, but I hope they don't give it to her. I hope she spends the rest of her life in jail and it's hell on earth for her. Fucking evil bitch.

The sentence she's eligible for is 5-years-to-life. Not sure about parole possibilities. But I would seriously consider removing a judge that allowed the minimum sentence to be imposed in that case!

Just think what would have happened if it was turned around and she was white and the victim was black. You would have heard from Jesse and Al and the rest of the gang about how evil the white man is. The rioting in the streets would still be going on. We sure are lucky it was a white guy, huh.
