Why is a pig's life worth more than a man's?
You couldn't even make this shit up. I'm not even surprised or shocked anymore.

If "all men are pigs," why is a pig's life worth more than a man's?
It's interesting that a woman is facing 50 years in prison for decapitating her boyfriend's piglet but if she killed him, she would probably face a lot less, with an average prison sentence of about six years. When a man's life is worth less than a pig's, it tells you something pretty sinister about our society."
Original links to:
- article re. the ex-gf who did a Don Corleone on her ex-bf's pet piglet (that he was raising to help him rehabilitate after a head injury)
- And to the US Dept. of Justice data, showing that husband defendants accused of spouse murder have an 87% chance of jail and on average serve 16.5 years vs. wife defendants who have a 70% chance of jail and on average serve.... 6 years.
... yeah, I'm not what you expect ....
