A Texas man, Ezekiel Gilbert, has been acquitted of murder after shooting and killing a 23 year old escort he found on craigslist because she would not have sex with him even after paying her $150 fee.

Jimmy This is too much to handle. Those laws have to go.

Victoria Stoklasa (victoriastoklasa) | 8 comments Prostitutes are often considered non-persons in law, which is heartbreaking. Not to mention the idea that "a prostitute can't be raped." Makes me sick.

Robert Zwilling Technically she was listed as an escort which means sex is optional at the escorts discretion. This is craigs list, and things are not always what they seem, but there is no way a person can shoot someone for $150 dollars under any circumstances. The killer was quoted as saying he was glad the jury ignored the truth.
