Exactly the issue is not why he did it(he's a nutjob like many johns, mobsters or any person who engages in criminal activity) but the issue here is the fact that he was acquitted because the law is being intrepreted to support criminals. The law has loopholes that criminals can use to justify senseless homicides.

You do NOT shoot someone who is not threatening your life. PERIOD. The fact that people give a shred of credence to the notion that this was justified robbery is indicative of how easily people are steered in the wrong direction. How has this judge survived on the bench all these years?? In fact, I can't believe this story hasn't made it to the main stream media. If you were being denied services for anything else you would sue, not shoot.

Texas, you should be embarassed.

The story has made it to the national media, and many Texans are embarrassed.

Shooting is a bit severe but this looks more like a robbery set up.
Escorts sell time. Sex is implied and no doubt escorting is a cover for prostitution most of the time, but it's not a guaranteed thing. Escorts were originally meant to be dinner companions/arm candy.

Technically she fulfilled her end of the bargain. She sold him 30 mins of her time for $150.

I worked as a male prostitute back in the 70's. I first advertised in the Massage section. The police told me I wasn't certified to do massage, so I subsequently advertised in the Escort section, same thing, full intention of having sex with clients.

Given the strange, kinky requests I received over the years, this could have been an issue, like the guy who would only call me during a thunderstorm (wrestling nude in a park during a thunderstorm!). And there's the easy ones (climax very quickly, no big demands) and the long-distance runners I call them: it could take a good hour for them just to get warmed up. With these you can literally wear yourself out, no matter what you try! And the end of the hour arrives: You can't go yet, I'm not paying you until I've climaxed! Sheesh! You could be there another hour, and they're still not satisfied!

Can understand why this type would turn to prostitutes, their wives gave up all that " hard work" long ago!

It did say she stayed there for a half-hour, $75 worth! And what was all discussed in that half-hour, I'd like to know!

I sense, not surprisingly, bias here against prostitutes!

He could have hired a plumber, electrician to come to the house, they didn't do the work properly, and had to hire another to correct the problem, which has happened to me a number of times! Shoot any of these professionals, and off to prison you go!

Well its a crime to steal ain't it? She either should have gave the man sex like she advertised or gave him back his money. No one goes to an escort and pays 250-500 an hour for conversation. Those are called sex phone lines or sex chat rooms. Anyone in the escort business knows that you aren't being paid to talk, you are paid for sex or sexual like things. She tried to rob him, probably robbed a bunch of guys and got what she deserved. Most likely what happened was she took the money, promised him sex and then when he asked for it she refused to give sex or return the money, frankly I see nothing wrong with shooting a thief.

The only reason escorts and escort agencies can legally work in the US despite of anti-prostitution laws if because they advertise that they ONLY sell time. Obviously it is just a cover for prostitution and sex does happen a lot of the time but technically the escort didn't do anything wrong.

Everyone knows that "happy endings" (handjobs) often happen in massage parlors under the table but if a man shot and killed a massage therapists for not giving him a handjob would you think that was right?

Sterotypes from the days of seedy red light district erotic massage parlors Some idiot will read this and think every accredited massage therapist is sex therapy.

Maybe thats the new title escorts should use 'sex therapists'.

This case makes no sense. He basically got away with murder. This is exactly why we need stricter gun laws in this country. Too many nuts walking around thinking they are judge, jury, and executioner over pettiness. I hope her family if she has any goes after him in Civil Court.
