Black Killers: The White Devils Made Me Do It!
[Re: “Black Robber-Murderer Uses ‘Hands Up, Don’t Shoot Defense!’ “I was Acting in Self-Defense, because the White People I was Robbing and Slaughtering were Using Excessive Force”!”]
By David in TN
A defense I've seen before in these (black on white) murders is the victim resisted causing the murderer to kill him or her.
I don't know if you've heard of it, but the Sarai Ribicoff murder in Venice, California was an example. Miss Ribicoff, niece of the Connecticut Senator, was robbed at gunpoint outside an upscale restaurant in November 1980.
She handed over her wallet but resisted when one Frederick Thomas grabbed for a (family heirloom) necklace Sarai Ribicoff was wearing. Thomas shot her. Miss Ribicoff died gasping for breath.
At trial, Thomas' attorney argued it was Sarai Ribicoff's fault his client shot her. Had she not resisted, it "wouldn't have happened."
Thomas was found guilty, but was spared the death penalty. As I recall, a couple of black jurors held out against it because they felt the victim's resistance caused her death.
By the way, Sarai Ribicoff was a big liberal and it caused a temporary change of heart by some of her colleagues in Los Angeles.
There was a lengthy article on the subject in Rolling Stone at the time by Randall Sullivan.
Another example was the Gina Stallis murder in St. Louis a few years ago. The victims resisted, "causing the gun to go off."
N.S.: Of course, no black cut-throat ever shot a gun. It always “just went off.”
