There needs to be a hot/defenestration scale.

If the sexes were reversed, there wouldn't be much sympathy. "Your honor, sure, I pushed my wife through the window, but it was too thin! I thought it would bounce her back like a trampoline."

So in the interests of equality and public order, put her away.

So why have "breakaway glass" on a 17th floor?
 
2013-03-20 09:29:57 AM
I blame society.

She blamed the break-away glass for pushing her husband?

Wait, on what possibly grounds do they have for asking the repairman if he feared the lady he was working for, the one time he had contact with her?  How on earth is that relevant information?

What did the line of questioning go like:

Attorney:  So that biatch, kinda crazy eyes right?
Rosala:  biatches be crazy.
 
2013-03-20 10:01:38 AM
But Rosales also told the jury that he feared that Amber Hilberling might push him through the broken window after he entered.
Seems odd. Why would he think that? Did he assume she was going on a "Push people out the window" spree?

He probably has experience with pregnant ladies.

As the 12 men of the jury nod knowingly.

That's like the time my first wife died while she was cleaning my gun.
It also reminds me of when my second wife drowned in our toilet.
Then there was the incident when, oh and this was funny, my third wife stepped backward and over the edge at the Grand Canyon while I was trying to take her picture.
My fourth wife -- don't even get me started on trying to explain why she would bake a cyanide cake.
And then just last night, my fifth wife choked to death on her vibrator. I have no idea what she was trying to do.

Anyway, that means I'm single ladies.

Like a lion she stalked her prey, waiting for him to drop his guard ever so slightly. As Rosala examined the broken shares of glass that littered the now destroyed living, he felt her warm breath on the back of his neck.

"Sure would be tragic if you fell out of the window similar to my husband"

Probably because she kept walking up behind him real fast when he was measuring the thickness of the glass.

She was likely aiming for a killing spree

Generation_D: So why have "breakaway glass" on a 17th floor?


What? You want people to cut themselves on glass shards? Far safer to have an entire section of building snap off and break away.

It's time for a ban on fully automatic assault windows. And blonde chicks built like linebackers.

/BTW, dear Daily News, it's "rationale", not "rational".

Well, to be fair... if I heard my neighbors glass shatter, I walked over there to see whats up, and some woman screams at me that she just murdered somebody by pushing them out the window..... I might just not feel too safe walking near the edge in her presence.

You know, since she just murdered somebody by pushing them through the window.

It's my experience that any girl named Amber is someone that is batshiat crazy to begin with.

All I saw was the dame standing there in the glare of the fluorescents waving her arms like a huge puppet and the curse I spit out filled the apartment and my own ears. I wrenched the door knob over, felt the latch start to slide, brought it out with a splash of power and almost ran up the side of a wall as the door fishtailed. The chain bit in, gouging a furrow in the door jamb, then jumped to the end of the latch and held.

Somehow I had managed a sweeping curve around the babe, and opened the door. For a few seconds she had been living on stolen time because instead of getting out of the way she had tried to stay in the path of the lock stile. I stood there and let myself shake. The butt that had fallen out of my mouth had burned a hole in the leg of my pants and I flipped it out the window. The stink of burned cigarettes and cheap booze hung in the air like smoke and I was thinking of every damn thing I ever wanted to say to a hairbrained woman so I could have it ready when I got my hands on her.

That was as far as I got. She was there in the apartment beside me, the door slammed shut and she said, "Thanks, mister."

I knew the dame was bad news. Real bad news.

Armando Rosales, a glass repairman, went to the apartment after hearing the glass shatter. He corroborated Amber Hilberling's claim to the court that the large pane was in fact thinner than what is typically used in highrise windows.

A truly fortunate coincidence to find a glass repairman happening by on that fateful day

There is no way I would vote "guilty" as a juror.

The building should have installed the proper glass. Go after them.

Not guilty of what?

She committed manslaughter 100%.  You dont get to shove somebody at glass and just assume they wont get injured.

all the same, isn't tulsa a big tornado place?  wouldn't they want even stronger than normal glass on a high rise?
 
2013-03-20 10:45:34 AM
There are very specific building codes pertaining to the glass used in highrise buildings for this very reason but a building not being built to code does not mean that you can kill people with impunity. What this is going to come down to is if she expected the glass to break or not. If she had a reasonable expectation that the glass would not break then she's safe, if not then not. She's going to have to take the stand a convince the jury. Good news for her shes a woman and she isn't ugly. She'll probably walk.

As soon as I read the Fark headline I knew who it was about. Josh was my first cousin on my dad's side. I saw him last about a decade or more before his death. I couldn't believe it when I heard what had happened. We've been following the court stuff and hear occasional updates from the family. Just a terrible way to die.
 
2013-03-20 10:45:56 AM
Rookie mistake on the husband's part - you never try to argue with a pregnant woman in person. Just agree with everything they say, leave at the first opportunity and call when you're a good hour's drive away and you can say what you really think in safety.

Another United States military man, no doubt accepting all the benefits and graces for "serving" his country, yet easily killed by an unarmed woman.  No wonder you lose every war you're in.

If only there was a glazing submittal on record at the architect's office with detailed information about the glass that was installed.
 
2013-03-20 10:50:57 AM
She didn't think it through. If she'd said she "felt threatened" by her husband, she'd be home free.

To be fair, he did sign up with Consumer Recreation Services to play a game. Obviously someone forgot to set up the inflatable bag to catch him. She should sue CRS.
