Woman Shoots Uber Driver After Wrongly Assuming She was Being Kidnapped

This is an innocent mistake.

You can’t expect a woman to know what is going on at any time, with anything, ever.

They live in a constant state of over-excitement, and a key ingredient to the mix is fear.

The Guardian:

A Texas man in El Paso died days after being shot by his Uber passenger, who claimed to have incorrectly assumed she was being kidnapped and taken to Mexico.

Daniel Piedra, 52, had been on life support after being shot multiple times in the back of the head on 16 June. Doctors said he would never be able to come off life support, and his family made the decision to pull him off it Wednesday, when he died.

Phoebe Copas, a Kentucky woman, is being held in the El Paso county jail on a count of murder in connection with Piedra’s slaying. She booked a ride on 16 June to a casino in the El Paso Mission area.

She allegedly saw a road sign for the Mexican city of Juarez during the ride, believed she was being kidnapped, and shot Piedra, according to the El Paso Times. “The investigation does not support that a kidnapping took place or that Piedra was veering from Copas’ destination,” El Paso police said in a statement. The incident also did not take place near a bridge or any port of entry to Mexico, authorities said.

A criminal affidavit obtained by KTSM, a local news station, alleges that Copas did not call for help when she believed she was being kidnapped or after she shot Piedra. She allegedly took a photo of Piedra and sent it to her boyfriend, KTSM reported. She is being held on a $1.5m bond.

That black bitch has some serious self-confidence to imagine someone is trying to kidnap her.

This also brings into question the stupid conservative meme of “arm women for their safety.”

If you arm a woman, she is either going to hurt herself, or she is going to hurt some innocent person. In the very best case scenario, if she is ever actually in real danger and pulls the gun, the man she pulls it on is going to take it from her.

There is no good outcome to a woman ever owning a gun.
