Macy woman sentenced for stabbing on reservation

Omaha, Nebraska (AP)

A 31-year-old Macy woman has been sentenced to 15 years in federal prison for second-degree murder in the stabbing death of her boyfriend.

The U.S. Attorney’s Office in Omaha says Janice Grant acknowledged stabbing 24-year-old Erasmo Porter last July in the chest with a kitchen knife. She had testified that he came toward her in a menacing way.

Why couldn't they leave well enough alone, and just figure out that they weren't meant to be together if there was so much domestic violence and threats? It seems to me that Indians/Native Americans get the most time in prison than the average joe?! Remember the Declaration of Independance? There's a clause in there (I think) that states "no alcohol to us savages because we can't handle the spirit drink" I'm not sure where I read this but it's from the white man's treaty within themselves. don't mean to ruffle any feathers but alcohol is the drink and start of all evil! who brought it over anyway!!!!
