I find this a completely ridiculous outcome. This will result in countless numbers of people being killed with absolutely no accountability to the murderer. Rather, I should state that this will result in large numbers of men being murdered by women. This type of scenario has played out countless times, either where the man/husband kills the wife or the other way around. The big difference though is that usually when the man kills, the assumption of guilt is first and foremost; while when the woman kills, a variety of “defense” mechanisms tend to play out. Off the top of my head, I cannot think of a concrete example to illustrate, but there are many. Although his accuser didn’t kill him, think of Brian Banks’ story.This woman should not be released from prison. Even though GG was a pimp, etc, this does not give another the right to take the law into their own hands. Who gave Sara the right to play judge, jury & executioner? We are a civilized society; not living in the wild west or some foreign land where people’s rights are infringed upon.I’m sure one of the reasons for releasing her was the fact that this is an election year and many of the bleeding heart liberals and feminists are taking this opportunity to bring this issue to the forefront & are dancing on GG’s grave.So whether GG was guilty of his crimes or not, he will never have the opportunity to defend himself in a court of law. This is a basic right of every citizen. This man has a mother and most likely siblings that will never see him again. This scenario has played out even when the person murdered was innocent of his/her crimes and couldn’t defend themselves to the “potential victim’s” allegations.Who are the really victims in our “civilized” society? Men have become the butt of women’s wishes; whether it be in family court with antiquated divorce laws, criminal courts with false accusations and unfair practices or sitcoms portrayal of bumble headed nitwits.So, to conclude, I’d like to put this to you: if the roles were reversed and this man was ″abused” by this woman and decided to kill her, do you think there would be this much outrage at his incarceration and a reversal? Fat chance, huh...
