Re: Only 8 years for murder, because it wasn't. What!!!

As someone asks; how can stabbing someone in the chest with a big knife ever not be murder?

I think it depends on the intention. If a 'drink-fuelled argument' turned nasty that's not to say that the perp intended to kill. Isn't that what the crime of manslaughter is about?
If it's agreed that drink meant that the woman was not responsible for her actions, isn't that the same as some of the defences offered in other types of crime, such as rape; GBH, etc.
Personally I;m sick to the teeth of seeing drunken louts. Our flight Cardiff/Dalaman in May was full of them; disgusting behaviour and loud foul language with graphic details of sex acts is not funny.
