Women In Prison

I feel that the vast majority are in prison because of a man.  Many cases where the woman was being abused and finally could not take it any more and the kill the tormentor.  To me this is self defense even if the man is asleep.  She knows that when he wakes up the odds are that he will kill her sooner or later.  When she is being beaten she can not stop him. When he is resting she defends herself by putting an end to the abuse once and for all.

I knew of a woman whose boyfriend sold drugs out of her house.  They got busted and she went to prison and he got off.  The older daughter was 18 so she and here 15 year old sister lived there.  Daughter's boyfriend moves in and sells drugs.  Luckily she threw the boyfriend out before he got busted.
