In a way I agree Ben Dover...alot of women screw things up and men care so much they over react towards violence... But a man doing something violent to a women Is wrong and vice versa.

I think Ben Dovers name is appropriate since he seems to hate women so much he must be used to that position.

Ben, my problem with your rant that it first off it implied the article portrayed the woman as innocent when if you read the article it barely mentions her at all. Secondly, she, based on the information in the article IS the innocent victim, and unless you have information to dispute that then she IS the innocent victim. Thirdly, no matter what their relationship or what you think she may have done to justify his actions, there is no justification. Based on what that "man" had in his possession at the time of his arrest he was not planning on a nice, quiet chat about their relationship. HE broke the law by violating a protection of abuse order and coming after her with items that one can only logically conclude were meant to do her physical harm. By even trying to rationalize the actions of someone acting irrationally you are excusing his behavior. Ask yourself this, if that loser had come after your mother, daughter, sister or any other woman you love with those items in his car would you be trying to justify it, or would you like to see him arrested and punished. Women, as well as men, can be the victims of abuse without doing anything to cause that abuse. That's the mentality, implied in your post, that I took issue with. IMO, the article portrayed him as a bad guy because he behaved as a bad guy and the victim is not to blame for that, whether they are female or male. I do appreciate your apology for offending me and I accept it. Happy V day to you as well.
