    What are they considering? She knew about the plan and drove him to scope out the club, what other option would there be for driving your husband to a gay night club when your religion is vehemently against gays?

    If true, WTF? Perhaps she thought he was just puffing himself up, or was terrified of him, but this sounds like complicity (again, if true).

    Really, if someone says they are going to shoot up a gay bar you would assume they were puffing themselves up and then drive them there to scope out the kill floor?

    She basically assisted in the execution of 49 innocent people.

    Will be interesting to see if there were any electronic conversations with his father that also seems to be a piece of ****.

    I have the feeling that it was an act of expiation ordered by his father, and his family knew about it.

    I would hold off until all the facts are out before trying to hang this woman.

    This dude had a history of domestic abuse. She could have feared he would kill her and her child if she tried to do anything against him.

    If true, I hope she is prosecuted to the fullest extent of the law.

    He had reportedly beaten his wife numerous times.

    *Queue the wave of "she should have just left him (and probably been killed for it) crowd*

    This guy's neighbors and coworkers reported him numerous times but the FBI but they couldn't do anything.

    They should have reported that he was a returning Iraq War vet with Methodist leanings. The Feds would have been on him like white on rice.

    His wife was an innocent.

    Well news reports are suggesting a grand jury is being called already which is like warp speed in the legal world, so they must think they have something on her.

    If she really helped him then she is not innocent, she may have been manipulated into it through abuse which I'm sure will be considered in the sentencing, but she could have chosen to report him even through an anonymous phone call.

    Why? For telling her hubby not to go out and commit mass slaughter like how most that commit hate crimes tend to do?

    Pity she didn't go to authorities directly, but is withholding information a crime? Why or why not?

    We have other situations where people don't give a crap about anyone else in society. Why would this be any different?

    How did she help? She told him NOT to do it.

    Yes, I think that would be accessory before the fact, particularly in a capital murder case.

    She was with him when he was buying ammo and scoping out the targets, that sounds like she was helping. She just grew a conscience later, assuming she actually tried to talk him out of it.

    I think it is too early to tell either way.
