Is it being asserting that the failure of an illegal transaction equals theft and therefore, legal retaliation shooting?

Escorting is, technically, paying for time: an argument could be made that shorted time equals theft. Not an argument I’d endorse—emanating from a law that’s a travesty—but sort of coherent.

But the minute the accused says “I was robbed because no sex” it’s a different ballgame. He misapprehends the contract w/re/ to services rendered, and then gets to shoot someone on the basis of his misunderstanding.

That’s fucking nuts.
