The Brooklyn district attorney's office confirmed that Bonds had been granted an order of protection from Rhinehart in April that had expired Friday. Rhinehart allegedly had threatened him with knives and a gun.
Let me ask you this .... if someone sits on your chest and pins your arms then how can they hit you with a shoe? Now, if they only have one arm pinned, then what are you going to be doing with your other arm? I would be trying to grab that shoe out of their hand or at least covering my head so they could not inflict as much damage.
Did Bonds have such defensive wounds? We have no idea because we are not privvy to the autopsy report at this point.
I do disagree that women get away with crimes that men would be convicted of ... I could cite many cases involving female felons being convicted.
Even in this case ... had Reinhart been the initial aggressor and not the defender, things would be quite different and she *would* be charged with homocide.
I think you will find that whereas two guys wrestling around might be able to pin each other --due to equal strength-- a woman would not have the same ability.
But, for the sake of argument, lets say she has somehow managed to do this. How does that account for him not using his legs? How does it account for him not just bucking her off? What did he do, just lay there?
Talking about executions is going off topic, but anti-death penalty advocates protest at ALL executions. Male, female, black, white ... it doesn't matter. In fact, I remember seeing a case profile on a case, in Texas, where the killer --a black male-- spit in the direction of the victim's family and said he was not sorry and would do it again if he could ... yet people were still outside protesting his execution.
You're right ... men demand special treatment based on their color, social status and sexual preference tho. I recommend if we want to discuss the death penalty we should open a new topic since it's getting pretty far afield from the case we are talking about here.
Assuming she is not a judo champion, professional athlete or body builder ... WHY was Bonds not able to throw her off?
After viewing her father's badly battered body, Barnes said she was sure Rhinehart used a weapon besides her shoes. "No size-12 pumps could have done that to him," she said.
I think this is BS...the jury would see the guy as overly violent and convict him of manslaughter, since aggression seems to be a common view of males. Terrafrost has already demonstrated that the justice system isn't blind to gender.If she had attacked Bonds first, then the situation would be reversed, but it isn't. Sex has absolutely nothing to do with it ... it is strictly a matter of who attacked who first.
The main thing you seem to be overlooking is that Bonds attacked her first ... that automatically puts her in a position of self defense, legally.
As for the quote from Bonds' daughter, I already addressed that in my response to Giga. That is her opinion --it is speculation on her part not fact-- and she is not a qualified expert on the subject. The medical examiner, who IS a qualified expert, obviously saw it differently.
I think scalp wounds also bleed slower than flesh wounds so yeah, I can see how you could easily do more damage than you knew you were doing.
Now, just because your scalp bleeds doesn't mean you are near death.
