Woman who killed fiance by kayak sabotage released after five months

Remember this one? They let her go after doing all of five months. Story here. If you get a paywall, jump it by Googling the first paragraph. Excerpt:

'Angelika Graswald was released from New York State prison on Thursday, about five months after she pleaded guilty to sabotaging her fiancé’s kayak before he drowned in the cold and choppy waters of the Hudson River in 2015.

She emerged to a sunny afternoon from the Bedford Hills Correctional Facility, a women’s prison in the rolling woods of Westchester County. Ms. Graswald declined to talk to reporters, but stood next to her lawyer, fidgeting and looking away from the bank of cameras, as he made a brief statement.
The case generated attention far beyond the area just north of New York City where her fiancé disappeared, fueled by prosecutors’ description of a seemingly doting partner who desperately called 911 for help only to later tell investigators that “I wanted him dead.”
During a lengthy interrogation, the authorities said, Ms. Graswald made statements implicating herself, telling investigators that it “felt good knowing he was going to die” and that his drowning had brought her “relief.” Prosecutors said she knew she was the beneficiary of two life insurance policies belonging to Mr. Viafore.'

... h@ving a consensual affair with a co-worker results in loss of livelihood and public villification, if you happen to be male. Should the political leaders/feminists of the #MeToo crowd obtain substantial political power, at some point h@ving an affair with a woman that she later regrets for any reason will be punishable by jail.

Think I'm kidding? I'm not. Yes, this is what it's come too. These same #MeToo types also believe that categorically, women should never in fact be imprisoned. ICYMI, here is just one article on it.

So long as men acquesce, allow themselves to be cowed, and sensible women do likewise, it'll only get worse. And worse.
