I'm pretty sure Nevada is the only state where prostitution is legal. But like Emmers said, people view sex workers as objects and not people. I've seen many, many people condone murdering sex workers in general. "Just a whore, who cares?" they say. No, she was a person. You may disapprove of her occupation but that's no excuse for murder. The only time I can condone killing someone is self defense or defense of someone else, but that certainly wasn't the case here.

It's kind of funny because it plays into our backwards culture of "sex bad, violence good", doesn't it?

It's Texas. I'm pretty sure it's against the law to NOT shoot somebody if you have the opportunity to shoot them.

As I understand it, that tends to be the case with a lot of places where you can shoot somebody (in the sense that you can't just threaten them; if you draw a gun you have to fire it).

I think in Texas you can be legally shot if you don't shoot somebody.

Example: I witness the Dalton gang rustling one of my neighbour's cattle but I'm too busy fantasizing about Playstation 4 to shoot them. My neighbour now legally has to shoot me because I didn't shoot the Daltons. My neighbour is conflicted because he always thought I was purdy. But he's breaking the law because he hasn't shot me for not shooting the Daltons. The Daltons come back and shoot him for not shooting me for not shooting them and me for not shooting him for not shooting me for not shooting them. Houston holds a parade in the Daltons' honor for bringing two dangerous criminals down.

Does that mean promoting pacifism or disarmament would make somebody guilty of entrapment? O_o

You know you certainly aren't in Daisy Town when the Daltons get rewarded for this kind of debauchery.

...I couldn't resist making a Lucky Luke reference. My apologies if you didn't get it. :P

Isn't this the state that just acquitted a man of killing a woman because she refused him sex?

I am upset that the "Justice" Department under Eric Holder, helped organize and manage rallies and protests against George Zimmerman. Judicial Watch has just released documents in this latest abuse of power by our supposed color blind Administration against a US Citizen that is presumed innocent until proven guilty...

Tampongate.

*snort*

In Texas they where forcing ladies to turn over any tampons and pads they had on them, as well as forcing diabetics to turn over various diabetic supplies, before being allowed in the Senate chamber.

I'm just glad the facts have come out. When the story first broke and I simply said I didn't have enough facs to make a determination People got upset by saying "GZ is clearly a racist who enjoys hunting down 12 year old children" Ironically the only evidence of racism was when TM's friend said he used a racial slur against GZ.

The majority of legal experts I've sen seem to agree that if the law is followed by the jury then GZ should be acquitted. That's why the prosecution kept pushing an emotional argument. But no matter what the decision I hope people have learned that you have to be skeptical of what biased entities in the media report.
