Jessica Hicks The Arizona Killer Mom Who Never Killed a Soul

I know we have certain laws to make sure dangerous people might not get back on the street. Some of them are useful, I guess, but Im not partial to these ‘tricks” and bullshitery that end up putting people away forever for things they did not do. It is a sign of stupidity and a weak government. 

Case in point: Ms. Jessica Hicks, an Arizona mother of three.
Granted Ms. Hicks was not living the most righteous of lives. She had lived an off again, on again transient existence with her car-jacking, weapons charges carrying, trouble-maker of a boyfriend, Craig Uran. On March 18, 2014, the pair decided to carjack a woman. They cornered a woman in a parking garage and as Uran brandished the gun, Hicks wrestled her keys away. They took her truck and went to a motel. When leaving the room, they were spotted by a police officer. Uran driving and Hicks in the passenger seat, the pair took off like a modern day Bonnie and Clyde, complete with Uran pulling a gun and brandishing it at the cop before taking off in the truck. 


Police called out a mini-tank and rammed the truck several times. Eventually, Officer David Norman shot Uran after the crazy car chase through Phoenix. He’d crashed the stolen vehicle and was still trying to drive around deployed airbags when the police shot him. The bullet went through the window and into his head. Hicks was sitting next to him in the passenger side. They pulled her out through the window and onto the pavement. Thats when they found out the gun Uran had was a toy pellet gun.

Here’s where shit gets weird. Jessica Hicks has been sitting in jail for over two years for the murder of her boyfriend, Craig Uran. According to Arizona state murder law, if you are present during a felony when a homicide happens, you are charged.


How in the hell is this ethical? I understand, we need a few laws to keep the crazies away but this? Really? How is this ok to keep a drug addicted, abused, homeless mom of 3 in prison for 2 years just to blame someone else for a murder a cop committed?
