I originally wasn’t going to do a cartoon about this story. But I couldn’t remain silent anymore.
Ezekiel Gilbert was acquitted of murdering a woman who wouldn’t have sex with him.
In Texas you can kill a person for stealing from you during the night. He claims he shot her, a Craigslist escort, because she wouldn’t return the $150 after refusing to have sex with him.
There seems to be a symbiotic relationship between our increased awareness of violence against women and the escalation of violence against them, now condoned by law.
