People v. McKinzie (Cal. Supreme Ct. - Aug. 2, 2012)

If you're broke and in need of Christmas presents for your kids -- in addition to crack cocaine -- please consider an income-producing strategy other than bludgeoning and strangling to death a 73-year old woman who lives near you.

Wholly apart from morality, although the "murder" approach may have relatively high short-term gains, it will ultimately lead to you being sentenced to death.

A sentence that the California Supreme Court -- in an opinion by Justice Liu -- will unanimously affirm.
