She was not just thinking about it...she showed active intent.So the woman was arrest for WANTING to kill her husband? That reminds me of an old Twilight Zone show where people's thoughts were monitored, and they were arrested for "thinking" about committing a crime.
Was the actual murder one that she committed? In that case I can understand her being arrested, but not for just wanting her husband dead. There have been people I wished dead in the past. I would hate to think I could be arrested for those thoughts.
You would be arrested for harrasment. As it would also have the undertones of a threat you may very well be cautioned for that.Yes, but it was just on a computer! How can anyone be arrested for something that isn't real? Had she hired a hit man, I could understand it. I guess I'm just missing something. If I were to send a letter to my ex saying "I wish you were dead", I could be arrested for wishful thinking?
and that is how domestic violence went unchallenged for so long...becuase laws did nto change...becuase harrassment was not worth arresting the person over...and the mental toture the spouse had to take...Apparently laws have changed. It used to be that a threat didn't get the police involved. They would say, "There's nothing we can do until he does something." The problem with that is that by that time it could be too late.
