Yeah. You read that right. He drove all the way from Arizona to Ukiah in California and shot the succubus in the head. And then he walked next door to the courthouse and surrendered. You gotta hand it to him. There's only so much abuse a man can take before reacting. And this is the kind of man that pushes back, violently.
But of course, since he's the wrong gender, the politically-incorrect sex, and the abuse was done under the auspices of the law, heck, the system is what made it possible for the "remote-control" abuse to happen, he is going to suffer. Just imagine the judge's glee as he sentenced him to four life terms.
When a man controls his wife's finances, its domestic violence.
When a woman controls her husband's finances, its child support or alimony and it is business as usual.
UKIAH, Calif.—A man convicted of killing his former girlfriend because she was trying to collect two decades' worth of child support payments was sentenced to life in prison.
Howard Raff, 55, was sentenced Tuesday by a Mendocino County Superior Court judge to four life terms in prison.
Raff was convicted in June of first-degree murder with three special allegations—lying in wait, murder for financial gain and using a firearm—in the shooting death of Virginia Larkin, 60.
Raff said in a videotaped confession that he drove from Arizona to California to kill Larkin. He described walking into the Ukiah law office where she worked in November of last year, shooting her in the head, then turning himself in at the courthouse.
He told jurors the killing was justified because Larkin was trying to bankrupt him. After dodging the court-ordered $200-per-month payments for 22 years, the debt had grown to $85,500 with interest.
"It is incomprehensible to the court how a decision to kill can be motivated by court-ordered child support," Judge Ronald Brown said at the sentencing.
Raff said he planned to appeal his conviction.
Can you believe that? Its so terribly sad that two lives had to be wasted because of an unfair system which profits by nailing men to crosses. How many more men and women need to die before the bigwigs agree that it is time to stop whipping the slaves? Of course, the importance of men is not the same as that of women... I think one woman dying is worth 100 or 150 men. Can anyone refresh me on what the current comparable worth ratio is?
The man probably made a choice - either slave away for the next two decades to pay the ever-growing amount (can you imagine what the interest on $85,500 would be?) with the court-appointed thugs making his life a living hell, with prison only a bout of unemployment away, or end it all and make a statement.
This man is one of the walking wounded. But since he dared to visit harm on a member of the royal sex, he is being punished accordingly.
I wonder how many life terms Clara Harris got? Or how about Mary Winkler? How about any of the numerous women who hire other men to murder their husbands?
Oh wait, they are not punished at all. The same way that a white person could kill a negro and get away just a few short decades ago, women are getting away today.
Raff is planning to appeal - my guess is that he planned to sacrifice himself for the greater cause of men's rights. Its incredibly hard to penetrate the lace curtain in matters like this, but I'll be waiting for more news about his plight.
