A Slight Overreaction

 According to a Chicago Tribune article :

"Jeanette Strowder, 58, is facing a first-degree murder charge in the Sunday shooting of Jesse Martin, 54, her boyfriend of about 15 years, police said.

"Strowder and Martin lived together in the 5300 block of South Shields Avenue for the last two years, prosecutors said during a Tuesday hearing where Strowder was ordered held on $600,000 bail. On Sunday night, she found CDs inside the home containing images of nude women and lost control, authorities said.

 "'The defendant confronted the victim, got a gun and shot him multiple times, including two to the head,' said Andy Conklin, a spokesman for the Cook County state's attorney's office.

"Strowder also went to the garage and smashed the headlights of her boyfriend's motorcycle, smashed out the windows of his car, and scratched the nickname of one of the porn models in the photographs into the side of his car, prosecutors said."

Let's be clear about this: The boyfriend had CDs with images of nude women ... so she shot him six times, including two shots to the head.

Yet nowhere in the article is there the slightest indication that anyone thought you'd have to be FUCKING NUTS to kill somebody over CDs of nude women! I mean, what kind of nutcase goes that crazy over porn?

Could it be the kind that's been raised in a very fundamentalist religious environment? One who's been taught that looking at porn means that the person disrespects women? Who's been taught that if you look at porn, you're going to hell? Who's been taught that porn viewers are spousal abusers and child molesters? Who's been taught that porn can be a life-long addiction leading to "broken marriages" and other social disgraces?

Yeah, maybe that kind of person puts six shots into a "boyfriend of 15 years."
