Default Ladies - you're not to be trusted with the truth

unless there are 2 of you Ladies and 1 man...

ABU DHABI // An Emirati man who shot his friend dead should not receive a death sentence because he is unstable, acted in self-defence and did not plan the killing – but also because the main witness was a woman, a court heard yesterday.

“The testimony of women is not acceptable when it comes to blood,” one of the man’s two lawyers said.

To be fair I'd say it depends if the shooting happened close to shops- those shop windows can be very distracting. Pretty shoes vs men fighting... hmm
