Note from BBT: It’s always shocking and saddening to read stories such as this one. A few days ago, this story was being shared all over social networks, being reported in various news outlets. You can never know what leads to these sorts of arguments which sometimes escalate into violence. I had never heard of the victim of this crime, but she did have a sizable following with her social network profile. Without any details, not knowing the victim, her husband or the couple’s history, I won’t make any sort of assumptions. But in my view, unless someone’s life is in danger and self-defense is necessary, I always see these sorts of crimes as unnecessary.
