Does she get a break because of who he was?

I know that we’re not supposed to encourage this sort of thing, but the story seems to be missing an important element.
News stories are supposed to contain the Who, What, When, Where, Why, and How. Let’s focus on the Who. They give us the names and even the ages, but who were they, really?
She is on active probation for a misdemeanor larceny conviction. He, on the other hand, has a criminal record that stretches back to when I was in High School.
We should not, as a society, encourage summary execution as a punishment for pissing off your significant other. But not only does this illustrate how common it is for the previously convicted criminals to murder and get murdered, it raises the question of how a person with this length of a criminal record was out in public and subject to being run over in the first place.

  1. We just saw this story on the local TV news last night. Of course, there was nothing said about either of their criminal history.

  2. Of course not. That would mess up the narrative. You’ve got to fear your friends and neighbors and family members because they could snap at any minute and murder you.

    If everyone knew that it wasn’t ordinary folks but convicted criminals doing the killing, then they might get upset that the criminals weren’t in jail where they belonged.
