Mirror, mirror on the wall, who's the fairest one of all?

It all depends on how long he stays with her.

500 block of Clinton Pkwy? I think not.

Poor guy...someone needs an intervention!

I'm probably going to regret this but here goes anyway. On the DGSD booking recap for arrests last night, a man was arrested 30 minutes earlier for domestic battery also, but no mention in the LJW. Hmmmm.

In fact, from midnight on the 28th there were 7 arrests for domestic battery plus 5 other arrests for battery. Must have been a rough weekend for everyone.

You mean they actually arrested a woman for domestic violence?

Amazing how comical the posts are when a woman gets arrested for domestic violence, versus the posts when a man gets arrested for it. Hypocrites.

Nah - if it had been a man I would have thought up something equally inappropriate and offensive.

Fatty_McButterpants 6 years, 8 months ago

You give yourself too much credit; your post doesn't reach the level of inappropriate and offensive, just stupid.

Criminal damage to property?

The mirror belonged to him, then?

Give the guy credit. If he retaliated, he'd be in jail too. No good can come from hitting a women, no matter what she does.

I've known the police to arrest woman after a guy 250lbs tosses her around like a rag doll. He gets a small cut to the face and she ends up with her kidney bleeding internally. The bruises usually aren't present until a day or two after the fight. This isn't about the above story but lets not rush to conclusions until all the facts are in. To often I've seen the police question why the woman stays instead of making it harder for the man. In some cases the woman stays to try to protect her children and raise them with a few good values. It's hard for a woman to leave when a guy even controls when she can leave the house and then questions why it took so long at the grocery store. I know of a lady that has called the shelter to be told they have no room. She has called for over one year and is hoping to make it out alive.

Kyle Reed 6 years, 8 months ago got all that from 4 sentence article? You've got her being tossed around like a rag doll, only protecting her children, being grilled about where she was when she went to the store, and finally trying for a year to get into a shelter only to be turned away all the while hoping she makes it out alive?!

"...lets not rush to conclusions until all the facts are in." You should SERIOUSLY take your own advise.

I wrote, "this isn't about the above story". The story I wrote about is from other experiences that I've known about.

Your friend should try Womans Transitional Shelter here in Lawrence. If they are full they may have other options for her.

I am shocked! this blatant injustice will not stand!

everyone knows, including some posters on here, that womyn are never the perpetrators of domestic violence. and furthermore everyone knows, including some posters on here, that all men are potential perps!

WTCS is great, but not for male victims of domestic violence.
their events further the stereotypes. these stereotypes are used as cover for womyn who commit domestic violence.

pagan_idolator 6 years, 8 months ago

Gnome - you want me to kick yer butt?? Just kidding, of course but you always leave it open for me to insert a smart aleck remark. Do you think if there was something like WTCS for men they would go to it? I have actually witnessed female on male domestic violence. Its just as ugly as male on female. I have also witnessed female on female and male on male. Some people are just jerks no matter what their sex or sexual preference is.
