Wow. My basic hope in the goodness of people allows for shit like this to continually blow my mind. I really can't fathom how people like this are so-called positions of public service when they're clearly a disservice to their state and country.

And sad that people like this still exist, let alone get elected.

It's specious either way, but like the third time I listened to it I started to wonder if she was saying Sheppard was BEING robbed. I had previously interpreted it as her saying he was attempting to rob his murderers.

It's still wrong and still minimizes what really needs to be addressed, but definitely some measure of my initial outrage had to do with the idea she was claiming Sheppard had been murdered in self-defense. Now I'm less certain that's what she meant.

She still sucks!

I don't think she's saying that.

Yeah I'm pretty sure she's saying that he was killed while being robbed and that the fact that he was gay had nothing to do with it at all.

Yeah, that's what she's saying. That's the "it wasn't a hate crime" defense. It's been shown to be false, but it's been around from the beginning. She's not offering a new perspective here, just promoting established lies.
