Several years ago when Mary Winkler, a Tennessee minister’s wife, shot and killed her husband, the media immediately began portraying her as troubled and abused by her husband, even though there was seemingly no evidence to support that portrayal of her husband. She fled the crime scene with her small children and traveled aimlessly through several states in the family van. If a man had shot his wife and then fled with the small children, he would have been described as “most likely armed and dangerous.”  Even throughout the coverage of the trial, much of the coverage focused on “poor” Mary Winkler and seemed to be instead a trial of her dead husband.In regards to how this affected viewers, it seemed that during the coverage of the incident, people wanted to believe that there was something evil about Winkler that would cause a young mother and wife to shoot him in such a manner and then flee in a strange manner.  Americans have a difficult time thinking of women shooting someone out of rage or for any reason other than self-defense, but perhaps that is because of the way female-committed crimes have always been portrayed versus the media’s handling of male-driven crimes.
