Man Gets 25 Years For Throwing Boiling Water In The Face Of His Halfway House Roommate For Stealing His Sausage
BaltimoreSun- Prosecutors had alleged that Frye, who they said mistakenly believed his roommate had eaten his breakfast sausage, lured the victim to the top of the basement stairs of the home, then tossed a pot of boiling water at him. The victim fell down the stairs and struck his head on a door, and prosecutors said he endured "months" of disfigurement.
First things first, did we ever clarify if two-face is actually the one that stole the breakfast sausage? I think that is pretty imperative to the story? If he did, indeed, exact revenge on the right guy then this is a complete failure at the hands of the justice system. If throwing hot water in someones face gets 25 years, then what does food theft get? That is a far more socially unacceptable crime.
Wasn't this guy kind of asking for it? For instance, if you stole my breakfast sandwich I would think first degree burns and a head first trip down a flight of stairs would be an appropriate punishment. You've got to expect this as a minimal response when you are dealing with your halfway house roommate. I'm sure much worse things happen in a halfway house. A bucket of steaming water to the face is probably par for the course. That's just considered a prank.
I wonder if this guy was actually trying to kill the Jimmy Dean's thief? Sort of have to worry about that with his past. He has failed at murder before. This might be the exact reason. He over thinks it. Leave the pots and pans at home and go straight for the jugular. If you're going to rot in prison you may as well have some blood on your hands to show for it.
