Default Re: Convicted murderer arrested in Steve McNairs death

Of course, that's dealing with a whole 'nother animal, rape instead of murder.
Would he have wound up being murdered had he remained faithful to his wife? I vote no. While he didn't deserve to die, and the circumstances don't make his death any less tragic, he doesn't get a free pass in my book.
