"There are as many violent women as men, but there's a lot of money in hating men..." --Erin Pizzey, founder of the first modern battered women's shelter.
Winkler now has her children back by the way.
She admits she shot her husband in the back with a shotgun while he slept. She removed the phone as he lay dying so he could not call for help. It took quite a while for him to die.
No problem for Ms. Winkler. She took the kids to the beach. When interviewed by the police, she gave several conflicting stories. Only after she hired a defense lawyer did she come up with the abuse excuse. And of course the husband wasn't around to refute it.
The real deal is that she was caught up in some Nigerian scam that her husband found out about. That's when she killed him. A male juror, sheepishly attempting to explain the verdict, simply said the female jurors would not go for murder.
Female chauvinist pigs are everywhere. Not just in your local womyn's studies class. They are the voters, jurors, judges, HR staff, teachers and politicians who every day favor women over men.
