In a shocking jailhouse letter, obtained by TMZ, the ex-MMA fighter allegedly wrote that he could have easily shot and killed his ex-girlfriend, Christy Mack, and gotten away with it if the attack had taken place in Texas. See it here!
War Machine, 32, reportedly thinks his ex-girlfriend, Christy Mack, 23, got off easy when he allegedly attacked her because he feels he could have shot and killed her — and got away with it — if the attack had taken place in Texas, a shocking new report claims.
War Machine’s Jail Letter — I Could Have Shot & Killed Christy Mack In Texas
War Machine doesn’t think he should have been charged at all for allegedly beating the crap out of Christy, according to the letter he allegedly wrote to a friend while in prison, TMZ claims. (Read it here.)
War Machine allegedly wrote, “Even if I wasn’t ambushed [by Christy’s friend Corey Thomas], they still would have got what they deserved! In Texas you could have shot them both and got off with that ‘passion crime’ s**t.”
After doing a bit of research, we found that a crime of passion is often referred to as the “Law of Texas” since juries in that state are supposedly lenient on betrayed lovers who wreak their own vengeance, . Of course, this doesn’t give people a free pass to go killing their significant others. It’s often difficult to prove there was no element of “premeditation” before committing a crime.
War Machine Pleads Not Guilty To Attempted Murder Of Christy Mack
War Machine was on the run for a week before he was arrested in Los Angeles. On Sept. 3, he entered a not-guilty plea for the 32 charges of which he’s been accused, including two counts of attempted murder for his alleged attack on Christy as well as Corey.
