    People seem to forget that just as being made in the image of God makes women as valuable as men it also makes them likewise as accountable as men. Its just that wicked women can pull out the victim card just so they can appear innocent which is quite despicable.

    That does not help her case Leonhard, if anything it shows the lengths she was willing to go to, to get him killed.

  • Female privilege: woman hires hitman to kill husband, escapes jail by faking abuse

    Faking is a bit too strong, she put no effort into faking anything, she just made up a story about how her husband (whom she was trying to kill off) abused her and the judge bought it.
    Be sure to go to the link for all the details.

    In 2011 the Crown appealed the acquittal to the Nova Scotia Court of Appeal. But to its dismay, the higher court upheld the lower court’s decision, writing: “It is hard to imagine that, as a teacher with a steady income, support from family and friends, presumed police protection, a divorce in the works and with the last specific threat months before the ‘crime’, she would not have had other avenues of escape.”
    Yet the Appeal Court upheld the acquittal.
    There was one last hope for the Crown – an appeal to the Supreme Court of Canada which, in January 2013, made a stunning reversal ruling that the defence of duress – the only defence Nicole used to justify hiring a hit man to kill her husband, did not apply.
    But then in yet another bizarre twist, instead of sending the case back to the Nova Scotia court for a re-trial, the Supreme Court ordered a stay of proceedings, determining that Nicole had suffered enough.
    Bottom line: Nicole Doucet can never be tried again for the crime.
