Is anyone else angry about the verdict in the so-called "Starbucks Slaying?" The one where the guy admitted he tracked down and stabbed his ex-girlfriend in public at ABQ Uptown, in front of witnesses, because she dared to throw a cup of hot tea at him when he confronted her? You can read more about it here, if you have a subscription to the Journal.
He was aquitted of second degree murder and a slew of other related charges Tuesday. Apparently the jury bought his defense, which also included the claim that he suffers from some kind of brain disorder (one that makes it okay to murder people, I guess). As a woman in Albuquerque, I find it chilling that a jury would ignore what appears to be a clear instance of a woman who lost her life due to domestic violence.

Absolutely outrageous! The jury deadlocked on voluntary manslaughter, so there is a chance he could be retried on that. But yeah...I wonder what went on in that courtroom...and during deliberations. Hard to believe the result. Thanks Amy.
