Wow...he will get 3 slaps on the wrist for that !!!

statisics show it will happen again. he may go to jail for a short time then she will go back to him.

I say after the first assault the victim is no longer a victim.... should be charged with endangering ones own life.

Yes, the courts are doing nothing! The Police do their job, but, as soon as a judge sits on it, NOTHING is done & they're back out there abusing &/or killing, again! There is no protection for the abused, but, the abuser is always protected...BY THE LAW!!!!!
mrmoon 1/13/2014 11:11:21 AM Report

here is an idea. If the judge feels that this person should be let out then so be it. If he does this to another person then that person should walk up to the judge that let him go and punch him/her in the face. Then we shall see if the judge feels that there should be jail time. It would be interesting to see what would happen..:)

I agree with Bad Dawg - she will likely go back to him. I intervened in a domestic once. He was beating the pulp out of her. I proceeded to give him a good thumping and she jumped on my back, gouging at my eyes screaming "Leave my boyfriend alone". Never again.
Pakadeva 1/13/2014 12:58:50 PM Report

I agree with mrmoon of course!
Yes, you are right, lots of times these people get back together because the victim has been so beaten down physically, emotionally, mentally, spiritually that they start believing the lies being shouted at them, ie "no one else would want you, you are stupid, you're too skinny, you're too fat, your kid is retarded, you're this, that & whatever". When they have heard that over & over again, they feel no one will love them or want to be around them, except the abuser, & abusers have had lots of practice with this abusive & manipulative, think twice before you blame the victim!!!! Victims need to be put in extensive counselling, maybe as part of a court order, in order to realize they actually still have WORTH!!!!

Packadeva. Thank you ,I have known a couple of these Women who went back time after time.
He comes back so very sorry ,loves her so very much ,he's gonna change etc etc etc

Then the "Honeymoon stage" he's all that she could hope for, he really does love her!

Thats why he is so jealous and possessive,cutting her off from Family & Friends!

Then "Hey B%@#$ where is my Supper?"

Yes the victims need counseling .

I'd like to say the abuser needs a good thumping but that won't change him ,Counseling might.

I agree with Mr Moon, except it would be the judge doing the time for all the probation charges, same as for the parole board, they let someone out and that person breaks the law the parole board member does that persons time remaining, maybe there would be less people out there breaking the probation orders...
havenesegal 1/13/2014 3:38:24 PM Report

Unless u have walked a mile in a victims shoes u have no right to judge> I went back to my husband over and over, I wanted to believe he would change, I wanted a roof over my head. I wanted my children to have a father in the home.I wanted and prayed for so many things.It didn't work he prob would of killed me eventually.I finally wouldn't allow him back ,got counseling for my self and children,and moved on. I now advocate for others who are living this nightmare. I never judge nor do I blame the victim. Imo that is just wasting time and breathe and energyPeople that throw the biggest stones of judgement often times have the biggest boulder sitting on their own home.Remember,everyone has a past and until we can truly walk in anothers shoes no one should be casting a stone anywhere.Dont judge but instead try to understand,forgive,learn and grow.Walking in anothers shoes without throwing stones can bring more wisdom than ever imagine

well said "havenesegal"
thomas 1/13/2014 4:53:58 PM Report

Wow havenesegal, good for you for finally seeing your worth, getting out of that situation and seeking help. People should never blame the victim. No one knows how it is until you've walked in their shoes.
Pakadeva 1/13/2014 7:26:19 PM Report

Yes, it's like being on a ferris wheel that won't stop, very sad. Nice that some people understand.

Thanks for posting your experience, for the help & understanding of others who may read. You were very brave in the moves you made & you made those moves when you started realizing that YOU had some power too! I don't know who you are, but, that doesn't matter for me to say that I am very proud of you & you must be a light at the end of the tunnel for others going through it. God Bless you!
Bad Dawg 1/14/2014 9:40:35 AM Report

I will blame the victim when she goes back to him and he does it again and again.

I believe that Smith and Wesson, has several cures for these low lifes.

we have to rid our society of these damn wifebeaters..... our courts just let them walk, and they either go back to their spouse and beat them some more or find a new punching bag. The judges should be nailing these lil bastards to the wall. They may do a short sentence in PROTECTIVE CUSTODY.... put them in with the GENERAL POPULATION and see what happens to them. If they make it out.... they sure won't beat women anymore.
