Hot button issue. Believe it or not women do not wield power in domestic assault and rape cases. In fact it's taken a very long time (centuries) for rape and domestic violence to be recognized as crimes. In many countries around the world women are routinely brutalized by rape and vviolence with no criminal prosecution.
We do agree that domestic violence should be fully prosecuted.
Go back and read posts on this thread- not into pointing fingers- but there were a few whose posts sounded like Evelyn must have deserved it, caused it because he's trashy, mouthy, whatever.
All I can say with full conviction is that women are victimized by violence- most often by their male partners at a much higher rate then men- and most of this doesn't get reported.
I posted Stewart facts- and will say the same to you. I wish no one was falsely accused, prosecuted, convicted. Unfortunately this happens with every crime.
But the comparison to the number of women abused, injured, and murdered by domestic violence occurs at a much higher rate than the falsely accused. That is just a fact. And there are many more cases that are not reported at all.
There are some unfortunate cases like Brian Banks. Glad he was finally sprung. Again our justice system is not perfect. And there are women who lie- just like men.
For every Brian Banks case here are many many more cases of rape and assualt that don't ever make it to court.
I appreciate your caution to wait till the facts come out before judging Chad/Ocho. And yeah he may fall in the 15% of men who are abused by their female partners. I dunno. Yep, maybe the pd made a mistake with his arrest.
My opinion is it's looking like Chad/Ocho did assault Evelyn. Though I could be wrong.
Yeah, he has been able to keep his nose clean- at least avoid arrests through his NFL career. The streak has ended. And no one knows what goes on behind closed doors- which is one of the many reasons domestic violence so hard to prosecute.
Look at the beating Rhianna took from Chris Brown before he was finally busted. You think that attack was his first act of violence against a woman?
Women are preyed upon and attacked by males who use their physical strength and size. These men are cowards- and there are far too may of them.
An example is our own armed services. In 2010 it's estimated that 19,000 women serving in our military forces were raped or sexually assaulted by their male counter parts. Prosecuting and prosecution is a nightmare. These are not false allegation, the ffemale soldiers assualted live and face nighmares daily. Secretary of Defense Panetta has called it an epidemic. And it is. Power?
In Response to Re: Ocho Cinco arrested
In Response to Re: Ocho Cinco arrested : I believe when something like this is reported it is assumed the guy is at fault. Also, look at the first serveral posts here automatically pointing fingers at Chad. And I don't recall reading a post where someone comes close to saying his wife deserved it. The thing is wait to judge these two people until you know the facts. Yes, domestic violence is a horrible, horrible thing. No woman should be harmed. But lets not forget how much power they yield, and they know it. It is so easy for a woman to accuse a man of something false and ruin him. Not saying that's what happened here but lets not pretend that it's not possible. Chad has been in the league for how long and not one problem off the field. Chads wife is the one who found the receipt with the condoms listed on it, I'm sure she was not a happy person when she seen that, probably very angry. Do you think she could have flipped out, head butted him and said he did it so she wouldn't get arrested? It's very possible, especially seeing how she can flip out!! Again, I am not defending anyone here. If he really did head butt her then I will be first to call him a dirt bag. But until we know, why judge? Things like this aren't automatic just because she said so. Have you not heard recently about the young man named Brian Banks who was falsely accused of rape, spend 5 years in prison, spent the next 5 trying to right this wrong, and then finally gets the accuser to admit she lied. Amazing!
