MURDERER SHOULD NOT BE ALLOWED TO PLEAD GUILTY TO MANSLAUGHTER

How sad is it that we as Americans refuse to negotiate with terrorists, but we will negotiate with violent criminals? Every woman should be outraged that Robert Piwowar is able to plead guilty to manslaughter for the murder of his wife, against whom he has admittedly been the perpetrator of domestic violence.

We always look for something or someone to blame when a tragedy like Michelle Piwowar's murder occurs. Let's look to the American justice system, which has dismally failed Michelle, her children, her family and all women by allowing her killer to plead to a lesser offense.
