A shocking article about a trial in New Zealand. The woman was charged with murder but found guilty of manslaughter. It seems she could be out of prison in two years. That’s how cheap her partner’s life is to the justice system.
The position is even worse in the UK. A woman only has to claim that she was fearful of her partner – she need furnish no evidence that her fear was justified – and the charge will automatically be downgraded to manslaughter, because of a change in the law introduced by the last Labour administration. The bottom line? Through lenient sentencing for female murderers, the state encourages women to kill their partners.
