Knives are More Lethal than Guns

Here's proof.

A 23-year-old woman was sentenced to 20 years to life in prison on Tuesday for fatally stabbing an Oakley father and shooting a clerk at an Antioch 7-Eleven during separate armed robberies in May 2006.

Doimonque Abernathy pleaded no contest Tuesday to second-degree murder for killing Ricardo Rivera Sr. outside his Oakley home, and to assault with a firearm for shooting clerk Narinder Singh Bajaj in the head.

Abernathy was an 18-year-old transient when she entered 7-Eleven on Sunset Lane in Antioch about 1:45 a.m. May 9, 2006, wearing a partial face mask and holding a gun, according to court documents.

Bajaj, who recovered from his injuries, told police that he was complying with Abernathy's demand for cigarettes when she shot him in the head. She ran from the store with the cigarettes as he lay on the ground, bleeding from the head. Abernathy later told police that the gun accidentally fired.
How about that sentence? Does 20 years sound about right for her?

  1. How does this prove anything?

    As to the sentence, I would prefer she hanged. But that's me. Stabbed to death one guy, then shoots another guy over some ciggies, at this point I see very little worth saving and a whole lot of expense to keep alive.
