Sorry Roger. You're pissing in the wind my friend
You may have been 100% correct at some point in time. However, the law and juries are becoming quite keen on the double standard. Unfortunately,
when the oppressed finally find freedom, the first thing on their agenda is to oppress their oppressors. Women have "gotten men back" a number of
times - family law comes to mind. However, the truth has a way of bubbling to the surface. Cruelty from the hands of someone who is loved and
trusted is always, always abhorrent.
I hope he has found healing over the years. And BRAVO to him for shining a light on this topic - so many men feel ashamed when this happens, and they
shouldn't. If domestic violence can slam 007 over the head, it take a raging blankity-blank on anyone. And for the record, yes, I believe they
should fight back.
