Per Barry Saunders’ “Expedient, but also troubling” column Sept. 25, it is troubling that Brad Cooper can admit to killing his wife and walk after 12 years. Making over $200,000 a year (reportedly) puts him in the entitlement class with all of the accompanying support systems and rewards. He basically had chips to bargain with.
The resolution of this case in the midst of so much attention on domestic abuse points a finger at high society. Domestic abuse (and murder in this case) occurs in all social classes. The “entitled” defendant uses high dollar lawyers to sanitize it and make it seemingly more digestible for the court system and all but nonexistent to those who want to believe it never happens in wonderland.
