My original comment, much longer, included that expression and is STILL 'in moderation'.
I would be surprised if she actually did something like that. Probably, she would be shot by the security detail surrounding her home. Having said that, a shotgun, especially a pump, makes one of the scariest sounds imaginable when a shell is 'racked' into the chamber.
Still... The VP's preference should not dictate what they rest of us are 'allowed'.
I heard. It seems the game worked. I'm sure his lawyers are happy they get to keep their income a bit longer. For now... He wins, taxpayers lose.
Too bad his victims had no rights.
Sorry about that. My reading comprehension skills must have been sleeping when I posted this question yesterday. The story DOES answer the question about 'what next'. Still .... an interesting story. I wonder what the follow-up decision will be from the Appeals court -second look?
Why did they wait so long to open the 'mentally ill' defense? Oh yeah, only after the other appeals failed... hmmm.
So I take it that the appeals court is required to hear the complaints that they dismissed earlier now? The 'what next ' factor seems to be missing here.
His Lawyers are trying to 'game the system' and playing on the sympathy of the anti-death penalty crowd who will protest ANY execution, regardless of the circumstances.
He was convicted of shooting and killing his 18 yr old girlfriend 11 TIMES and sentenced to life. Appeals were made but did not claim retardation and failed. He brutally beat to death his cellmate with a nail-studded 2x6 board while he slept and was convicted and sentenced to death. Appeals made for 5 years did not include mental retardation. Suddenly after those appeals failed his appeals switched to possible mental retardation which according to tests ordered by his own defense immediately after the second conviction 5 yrs before, he did NOT meet the criteria for retardation.
He's gaming all of those sympathizers but hopefully, the games will be over tonight.
