    I was stating my opinion. How on earth you translate that into passive-aggressive, I don't know. Paranoid much?

    If Florida law allows for a man to shoot and kill his wife because she punched him, the law needs changing. That would be outrageous. He's better be battered, blue and bleeding.

    You write "battered spouse," but your link says "battered woman defense." Why? Was your purpose to distort? Has there been any single case where a man shot his wife because he was battered by her? There might be a few out there, but you do know it's primarily a woman's syndrome, right?
    No men are anywhere, and Im allowed to go in, because Im the owner of the pageant and therefore Im inspecting it, Trump said... Is everyone OK? You know, theyre standing there with no clothes. Is everybody OK? And you see these incredible looking women, and so I sort of get away with things like that.

    And BTW... did you hapen to read the legal terms in your link?

    The courts in Australia, Canada, New Zealand, United Kingdom, and United States have accepted the extensive and growing body of research showing that battered partners can use force to defend themselves and sometimes kill their abusers because of the abusive and sometimes life-threatening situation in which they find themselves, acting in the firm belief that there is no other way than to kill for self-preservation. The courts have recognized that this evidence may support a variety of defenses to a charge of murder or to mitigate the sentence if convicted of lesser offenses. Again, battered woman syndrome is not a legal defense, but may legally constitute:

    -Self-defense when using a reasonable and proportionate degree of violence in response to the abuse might appear the most appropriate defense but, until recently, it almost never succeeded. Research in 1996 in England found no case in which a battered woman successfully pleaded self-defense (see Noonan at p198). After analysing 239 appellate decisions on trials of women who killed in self-defense in the U.S., Maguigan (1991) argues that self-defence is gender biased.
    -provocation;
    -insanity (usually within the meaning of the M'Naghten Rules); and
    -diminished responsibility.
    No men are anywhere, and Im allowed to go in, because Im the owner of the pageant and therefore Im inspecting it, Trump said... Is everyone OK? You know, theyre standing there with no clothes.

    1) Seriously? Maybe try reading first before tossing out accusations

    From the link:
    The battered woman defense also referred to as battered woman syndrome is a defense used in court that ***the person*** accused of an assault / murder was suffering from ***battered person syndrome*** at the material time. ***Because the defense is most commonly used by women***, it is usually characterised in court as battered woman syndrome or battered wife syndrome...

    ...Gender is also irrelevant. In AG's Reference (No.24 of 2003) (2003) EWCA Crime 2451, the defendant, who had a low IQ, suffered prolonged taunting from his wife as to his illiteracy and impotency. During an argument, he stabbed her (and his son) and then wounded himself with a knife purchased during a break in the argument to harm himself rather than others. Sentences of three and a half years for each offence to be served concurrently were imposed, the sentencing judge referring to the defendant as having been worn down over months and eventually broken by the cruel taunting of his wife and being forbidden from seeing his children.

    Has there been any single case where a man shot his wife because he was battered by her? There might be a few out there, but you do know it's primarily a woman's syndrome, right?
    What exactly is the purpose of your reply here?

    There's no justification for what he did. He posted a bloody picture of his dead wife on Facebook, for crying out loud, where her child could see it. He was ****ing proud of what he'd done.

    Self-defense my ass.

    I'd be interested to see if he had any injuries and how severe they were. Really, I can't see a man beating a woman to death in self defense in very many scenarios.

    I love the NSA. It's like having a secret fan-base you will never see, but they're there, watching everything you write and it makes me feel all warm and fuzzy inside knowing that I may be some person's only form of unconstitutional entertainment one night.
