It’s ok to kill craigslist prostitutes in Texas

Ezekiel Gilbert

Man Acquitted in Craigslist Escort Death:

Texas Man, Ezekiel Gilbert, Acquitted For Killing Craigslist Escort Lenora Ivie Frago:

The other day I brought you the story of the 2009 shooting death of 23-year-old Lenora Ivie Frago of San Antonio, Texas. I can’t call it a murder anymore but I’m getting ahead of myself.

Ms. Frago was working as a craigslist prostitute and had her services solicited by 30-year-old Ezekiel Gilbert. He paid her $150 but she refused to have sex with him. To get back his money Gilbert shot her. She was kept alive by life support for months until her family finally decided to take her off of it. If you’ve ever had family in that kind of situation you know how difficult that process can be.

Gilbert’s attorney argued that Gilbert used reasonable force to reclaim his property in this case the $150. I thought there was no way a jury could buy this but they did. Earlier today Gilbert was acquitted of the charges against him.

The Texas law allows citizens to use such force to “retrieve stolen property at night” or to hinder a burglar from escaping the scene of a crime during the night, as long as the person “reasonably” thinks that they have no other means of protecting their property.

So they don’t take into consideration that this shooting was done during the commission of another crime, the crime of prostitution. Last time I checked that was still illegal in Texas. If this was a drug deal gone bad would Gilbert have been acquitted? I doubt it. This is why no one cares about human trafficking. All its victims are seen as nothing more than human trash who deserve what they got.

Obviously Ms. Frago had a family that cared about her and all because some loser who couldn’t get laid on his own wanted his precious 150 bucks back she had to lie brain-dead for months while this jackhole is able to carry on with his life. Normally when a person is acquitted of a crime I remove all traces of it from my website, but not this one. This one needs to remain in order to show the injustice that was done and how poorly our society thinks of women like Ms. Frago who deserve better.

So if there are any aspiring serial killers out there head to Texas. You can kill all the hookers you want and just claim you were reclaiming your property.

The San Antonio craigslist killing that no one has heard about

Murder trial delayed for Craigslist escort killer:

This is the first I’m hearing about this story and I’m sure it’s the first time most of you have heard about it too. More on that later.

On Christmas Eve 2009 30-year-old Ezekiel Gilbert allegedly shot and killed 23-year-old Lenora Ivie Frago who was working as a craigslist prostitute in San Antonio, Texas. Ms. Frago was on life support until July of 2010 until her family decided to taker her off of it.

Gilbert’s defense is that the shooting was justified because he was trying to recover his ‘stolen property’. Gilbert is said to have paid Frago $150 for sex but then she declined after receiving the money. When dealing in illegal transactions there is always a risk that you may get ripped off. Most people would cut their losses at that point and get out without risking harm or attracting the attention of police. However this is not a ‘recovery of stolen property’, it’s a revenge killing over a measly $150. The article I linked to is about how the trial has been delayed due to a juror’s family emergency but is set to resume tomorrow.

Now it’s been almost 3 years since Ms. Frago’s death. Why hasn’t anyone outside of San Antonio heard about this. Is it because it happened in Texas and not Boston? Is it because Ms. Frago worked as a prostitute? Or was it because Ms. Frago may not be white? I think it’s safe to assume that it’s a combination of all three.

Just because Ms. Frago worked as a prostitute doesn’t make her death any less tragic and senseless.
