Very sad to read about this

Very sad to read about this story. Hopefully it would bring enlightenment to the community and to law enforcement that females are not always the victims in domestic violence cases. The vast majority are men, but you never know until the situation becomes fatal. I believe the criminal justice system should have a zero tolerance policy on domestic violence. If law enforcement officers are called to the home. Both male and female will be charged: not just the male. This will bring a halt to this serious and often fatal crime that is inspired by a history of violence by men. Women are just as violent. And in this day in time, even more than ever. The woman is not locked up because law enforcement sides with the mothers if kids are involved and numerous other reasons etc.... Has anyone seen a domestic violence shelter for men? Why is their a deputy on site at the Department of Social Services? There are no deputies at the Child Support Enforcement Office. Women are catered numerous services men are not offered and women have a more sinister attitude. Ever see Snapped? How many mothers you know have birthed a child by another man, but has another man believing the child is his own.

A Couple of Comments

in all seriousness, I hope the child did not witness this. Its life has been changed forever.

To those of you who thought Senator Soles' retirement would lead to an end of local drama, guess again.
