Texas says it's okay to shoot a woman if she won't have sex with you

Texas law allows people to use deadly force to recover property from a theft. A jury ruled that this included from an escort, if she didn't have sex with this murderer. So her life was worth $150 to Texas. The jury looked at this and decided it was a fair exchange. I can only hope they extend this reasoning to other services. If a doctor takes your money and doesn't cure you, you get t murder him. If a restaurant takes your money and provides you with food that doesn't match the description, you can shoot all the employees. If a mechanic takes your money but your car still makes that whuppa whuppa noise, you can murder him, too. Texas Says It's OK to Shoot an Escort If She Won't Have Sex With You
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. Gilbert had admitted to shooting Lenora Ivie Frago in the neck on Christmas Eve 2009, when she accepted $150 from Gilbert and left his home without having sex with him. Frago, who was paralyzed by the shooting, died several months later. Gilbert's defense argued that the shooting wasn't meant to kill, and that Gilbert's actions were justified, because he believed that sex was included as part of the fee. Texas law allows people "to use deadly force to recover property during a nighttime theft."

Terrorists behead British soldier on London street

And here is a video of one of the terrorists, covered in blood, bragging about his actions. Joe. My. God.: BRITAIN: Islamist Terrorists Behead British Soldier On South London Street
Two suspected terrorists were shot by armed police after attacking a pedestrian, believed to be a soldier, with a machete-style knife close to military barracks in an 'Islamist attack'. Local MP Nick Raynsford said he had been told the man attacked in the street was a soldier serving at the Royal Artillery Barracks near the attack. Mr Raynsford said the soldier had been returning to the barracks after a day out when he was attacked. The BBC reported sources had told them the men were shouting "Allahu Akbar" as they carried out the attack and had filmed carrying it out.

Massive tornado kills at least 91 in Oklahoma

20 of the dead are children. The tornado flattened two schools and wrecked a hospital. There are 145 injured at last count, 70 of them are children. Vast Oklahoma Tornado Kills at Least 91 - NYTimes.com
The tornado touched down at 2:56 p.m., 16 minutes after the first warning went out, and traveled for 20 miles, said Keli Pirtle, a spokeswoman for the National Weather Service in Norman, Okla. It was on the ground for 40 minutes, she said. It struck the town of Newcastle and traveled about 10 miles to Moore, a populous suburb of Oklahoma City. Ms. Pirtle said preliminary data suggested that it was a Category 4 tornado on the Enhanced Fujita scale, which measures tornado strength on a scale of 0 to 5. A definitive assessment will not be available until Tuesday, she said. Moore was the scene of another huge tornado, in May 1999, in which winds reached record speeds of 302 m.p.h., and experts said severe weather was common in the region this time of year. But the region has rarely had a tornado as big and as powerful as the one on Monday. Television on Monday showed destruction spread over a vast area, with blocks upon blocks of homes and businesses destroyed. Residents, some partly clothed and apparently caught by surprise, were shown picking through rubble. Several structures were on fire, and cars had been tossed around, flipped over and stacked on top of each other. Kelcy Trowbridge, her husband and their three young children piled into their neighbor’s cellar just outside of Moore and huddled together for about five minutes, wrapped under a blanket as the tornado screamed above them, debris smashing against the cellar door. They emerged to find their home flattened and the family car resting upside down a few houses away. Ms. Trowbridge’s husband rushed toward what was left of their home and began sifting through the debris, then stopped, and told her to call the police. He had found the body of a little girl, about 2 or 3 years old, she said.
