So a woman is nearly murdered by her husband, and the Globe opens up the comments so a bunch of jerks can make jokes about it and throw slurs at the woman. I'm thoroughly disgusted.

There was one judge in a weeks-long class that I took on understanding domestic violence. He was belligerent and interrupted the instructor within the first hour, and he didn't even come back for the more »

You mean well, but... Mandatory arrests have been proven to do more harm than good. As for arming victims, that gun is exponentially more likely to be used against the victim, and there's also the ris more »

It's incredibly offensive to imply that this woman would PREFER to be in an abusive relationship. My guess? For some reason, she has had very low standards for how she expects men to treat her in rela more »

"He doesn't like it when I talk about emotions. I don't like it when forgets to tell me where he is and what time he's coming home." If this is what is considered a "normal," average marriage, I'll more »

Scott - I presume from your name that you are a man. Your male privilege is showing. It's not a stretch at all. As a sexual assault survivor, just seeing the photo on my computer screen was jarring an more »

Or how about, a large percentage of women have been sexually assaulted, and seeing this statue is triggering/upsetting. Dropping it in the middle of a college campus full of young women seems obliviou more »

Spoken like someone who doesn't travel on 128/95 during rush hour periods. As others have said, even when you try to follow at a safe distance, someone invariably darts in front of you and creates an more »

FWIW, I call this kind of thing in, but I have yet to not be treated like a nuisance by the person who takes the call.

You're an idiot. The gun would most likely be used against her. Troll elsewhere.

wackywiz clearly knows nothing about domestic violence. How lucky for them. -_-

I expect trolls, but who are the additional three bigots who up-voted this and encouraged this jerk??

I'd like to know whether DCF is making any structural changes to prevent this from happening again. My guess is. no.
Posted 12/17/2013 06:39:57 EST
Please seriously consider that more women would feel safe enough to seek the help they need to get out if people like you didn't shame them with victim blaming. No one chooses to be abused, and it's a more »

NOPE. Also, what Padraighin said. And willos2 - abusers don't have tattoos on their foreheads warning dates that they are abusive. Instead, they are usually charming and loving in the beginning. The a more »

Why are you assuming she didn't tell anyone? DV victims don't hang banners on their houses announcing to their abuser and everyone else that they have sought help. Further, DCF was involved and horrib more »

As someone who grew up with a violent father who beat our mom and us kids, and who frequently threatened to kill all of us, I am more inclined to offer compassion to this mother until someone produces more »

This is fantastic. Glad to learn about it!
Posted 12/09/2013 08:36:43 EST
Actually, many DV victims refuse to press charges. In this case, I'm guessing he violated the RO and sweet-talked/guilt-tripped her into dropping the charges, which is a common tactic among abusers. I more »

While I agree that more needs to be done with regard to mental health, we must not let that overshadow our focus on domestic violence. The vast majority of mentally ill people DO NOT pose a danger to more »

I see we have our first bold-faced abuser-apologist. The "vindictive first wife," as you so offensively refer to her, was a victim of his domestic abuse and was rightfully acting to protect herself an more »

"Domestic violence is very common ...why once agan make a big deal???" What is WRONG with you?? Oh, right, you're a misogynist abuser-apologist. Three women are murdered EVERY DAY by abusers. Whatever more »

If it was carbon monoxide poisoning, I imagine the police would have said so in order to ease the public's mind. Instead, they're treating it as a crime scene, which heavily implies foul play. As for more »

Judging from your handle, you're a dude. As a woman, I can tell you that being leered at openly is unnerving at best and terrifying at worst. Try asking the women in your life about this.
Posted 11/11/2013 11:22:26 EST
How tragic. This is one of my greatest fears as a person who frequently drives on highways after dark. My heart goes out to her loved ones.
