Just because it’s domestic doesn’t mean they aren’t felons

Have you noticed that when people try to make the argument that “most murderers know their victims,” they pretty much assume that means domestic violence? When we counter that most murderers have adult criminal records, they say no, they are domestic violence. Why do they assume that domestic violence occurs between otherwise law abiding people?
Uh oh, more people who know each other, trying to kill each other.
Lamanda Lynn Walton has been charged with assault with a deadly weapon with intent to kill or inflict serious injury and possession of a firearm by a felon….
Walton is a convicted felon. She was charged with felony accessory after the fact in 1997, according to the North Carolina Department of Correction website.
Oh, my… But what about the boyfriend?
West also has a criminal record. He has served time in prison for multiple drug charges, according to the NCDOC website. West also has pending cocaine and marijuana charges in Gaston County.
What have I been saying all along? Most killers have felony records. Most violence is drug related. Luckily for this guy, he’s going to be all right. At least until his upcoming drug court date.

  1. Don’t know how it’s worded now, but the FBI UCR used to class things like this as ‘crimes among acquaintances’. Which also included gang bangers who kill each other, a taxi driver murdered by a passenger, you get the idea. Crimes between actual family members and such were also lumped into the category, and the gun bigots used the total number to get the ‘more likely to shoot a friend or family member’ BS.

    And let’s not forget that both these clowns could go to prison just for picking up a gun, let alone having one in their possession. My, they really don’t worry about the law, do they?

  2. The UCR would class this a “Boyfriend.” See my linked post
