That isn't legit motive. She still partied all she wanted.
It was an accidental death due to negligence that she tried to cover up. It's the prosecutors and detectives fault for going after the death penalty and using trumped up charges. She served her time and is deservedly free

It will be fascinating to see just how they try and spin this to say it's anything but what the pictures seem to clearly show. Perry is very aggressive and it's being kind to say he's invading Paul's personal space. Dr. Paul looks like he's just in a touch of shock while thinking "Is this REALLY happening in front of national media cameras?? Really??". This is really one of those off the cuff type moments we so rarely see of the candidates but that speak volumes for the brief glimpse they give. Incredible..... I am glad these pics are out and spreading so quickly.
Isn't that what you guys are doing here? Spinning the picture to say things it clearly doesn't show? I mean really, physically reprimanded? Ron Paul is making a fist? About to get a beat down? There's nothing in the picture to support any of those sensationalized claims.
Touching someone's wrist hardly qualifies as physically reprimanding them. You guys are letting your personal bias influence what you see. If you already perceive Ron as the underdog and Perry as a thug you are going to see this as an altercation about to happen. But someone looking at this photo without preformed opinions about Ron Paul or Perry would just see two people discussing something they are obviously passionate about. "Dr. Paul" doesnt look like he's in shock, he looks like he's listening intently.
Laying your hand lightly on someone's wrist can be done to get their attention, to show you are passionate about what you are discussing, or even as an intimate gesture. We have absolutely no idea what they are discussing, there's no reason to read violent overtones into the photo that aren't there.
[Sidebar: Ron Paul hasn't practiced medicine for almost 40 years, nor is he running for a position related to medicine, so why do people keep referring to him as Dr. Paul? It is a faux pas to refer to people by defunct titles, especially when they are succeeded by later titles of more prominance (Congressman). It is entirely unrelated to his political career and just comes across as petty.]
At one point when the video cameras weren’t rolling — though the incident was caught by still photographers — Mr. Perry walked over Mr. Paul’s lectern, took hold of the congressman’s wrist and wagged his finger at him. A spokesman for Mr. Perry said Thursday it was a policy conversation, not a heated exchange.
