    You can lose count of the number of people being shot/killed lately. Most of them- men shooting wives/girlfriends. If they do not care about the one they are hurting then they should at least realize their “freedom” is over! How about they just walk away and go to the next (unsuspecting) wife/girlfriend. Of course as soon as she realizes he is a freaking nutcase she will want rid of him also. Yes I also think drugs/alcohol and lack of wanting to do anything good in life is a BIG part of the problem!

    The woman who was shot was my relative, She is a disabled person who was the victim of domestic abuse that could take her life. People grow a heart. And stop spouting crap you know nothing about, seriously where are the people with love and brains?

    Domestic Violence Abusers comes in all shapes, colors and forms. They are unrecognizable by appearance. You only become aware when he/she snaps. Victims are merely victims unless they choose to become SURVIVORS of Domestic Violence. Staying in an abusive relationship makes you the victim; leaving and picking up the pieces makes you a Survivor! I hope the injured has a chance to decide which category to be included.
