The jurors who acquitted Ezekiel Gilbert, who murdered a woman over $150, need to be sentenced to ten years for idiocy in the first degree.
My Facebook friend Katha Pollitt pointed me to this petition against this verdict. Go there and sign it.
WHO ARE THE IDIOTS WHO RENDERED THIS VERDICT?
Apparently their thinking was that since Ezekiel Gilbert believed that the escort he hired from Craigslist owed him sex for $150 - an illegal transaction in Texas - he couldn't very well use the option of small claims court. So of course since he had no legal options to attempt to get his money back HE HAD TO SHOOT HER.
This verdict must not be allowed to stand. Even if most of the people who live in Texas are morons. Even morons deserve justice.
