The perfect crime

We saw this story on the news last night and I just had to laugh.

"Tracy Roberson's husband, Darrell, found her in a compromising position inside Devin LaSalle's truck on Dec. 11, 2006. He shot and killed LaSalle after his wife falsely claimed she was raped, prosecutors said. The grand jury declined to indict her husband on murder charge, instead indicting Tracy Roberson on manslaughter charges. After deliberating for hours, a jury sentenced the 37-year-old mother of three to five years in prison Monday night after convicting her of second-degree manslaughter on Friday."

Now, you know the husand is secretly pretty pleased with the whole situation... I know, I know, difficult emotions, feeling bad for the dead guy's family, he deserved to be punished but not to die, casting the first stone, etc. But dude, come on, he gets to shoot his wife's lover AND she goes to jail! I'm sorry to be unchristian (again...) but this is AWESOME, right?

Another excerpt:
"Defense attorneys had argued that Darrell Roberson never believed his wife was being raped when he caught her with LaSalle. They portrayed Darrell Roberson as a man who was out to kill LaSalle regardless of a rape accusation. "He's a jealous, controlling husband, and he was racing home with the expectation of finding something," defense attorney Jill Davis said."

Ummm.. hello! It's not like the poor innocent wife never gave him any reason to doubt her faithfulness. "He was just expecting to find something..." and he did! Bang. How convenient that she cried rape. Justice is served.

Of course the husband says he feels sorry about everything, regrets the death, thinks his wife should have gotten parole... Yeah, right. I bet he also told her he'd visit every weekend...

Did they not think to go to a hotel? IMO, she was hoping to get caught. She just didn't expect the aftermath of her behavior.

Lol! I can sooooo hear Daddio laugh right now. You two truly are two peas in a pod. I love the way you both laugh over everything. I bet you two laugh at all the commercials that come on between shows too.
