CliDOMESTIC VIOLENCE - A HEALTHCARE ISSUE
 (because I say so - and it's MY website)

Once again the local newspaper did a year end filler (December 2009) story on the poorly-named Domestic Violence issue. Mary Jones (not her real name) got the crap beat out of her by her first husband; divorced the jerk; married another wife-beater. After the latest beating wherein Mr. DeSade threatened to kill her, Mary filed a complaint with the Lee County Sheriff's Department  for battery

"What did you do to provoke him" inquired the complaint-desk sergeant, who likely sees nothing wrong with setting the little lady straight in his own home if she gets 'a little out of line'? And so it goes. 

First of all, "domestic violence" does not adequately define the situation. When we see or hear about a case of "domestic violence," the picture that pops in everyone's head is that of a sobbing, bruised, and bleeding woman cowering before the clenched fist of some guy, who invariably is bigger and stronger than she. Of course, there are cases of some women kicking the crap out of their husbands or boyfriends (eh, Tiger?), but we all know what really goes on here. N.O.W. nonsense notwithstanding, men are bigger, stronger, and a lot more aggressive. Men are hunters. Women nurture, Women are gatherers. 

And what damn difference does it make why he teed off on her anyway ? What we know is that, given the opportunity, the  asshole will do it again. So, the woman gets a restraining order and a shelter to hide out in. Tough guy gets out on bail, and a liberal judge orders  counseling. Then he charges right through that restraining order and puts Mary in the Emergency Room or worse.

Judge talks to Orlando Sentinel

A week before she died, Alissa Blanton
tried to get an order of protection against
a 61-year-old man she accused of bombar-
ding her with profane e-mails, sitting outside her home and following her to her job in Orlando.

The 23-year-old newlywed from Cocoa was gunned down Monday at a business park near the University of Central Florida — a place she hoped a Brevard County judge would make off-limits to the man she said had been tormenting her for two years.

Orange County sheriff's investigators later confirmed that Blanton's killer was Roger Troy of Cocoa Beach, the same man she said had showed up at her home, followed her to the beach and confronted her outside her workplace. The killer fatally shot himself after shooting the woman at least twice.

According to Blanton, her stalker's obsession began in 2008, when she was waiting tables at Hooters Restaurant on Merritt Island. In a 72-page petition for an order of protection that she presented at an emergency hearing Feb. 1, she said he owned several guns.

The man "started harassing e-mails when I stopped working at Hooters and talking to him," she wrote. "He states several times … how he has seen me in Orlando. He describes how I look (like that I gained weight and cut my hair). He once came to my work at AT&T Call Center in Orlando and blocked me in my car."

Such details failed to convince Brevard Circuit Judge Dean Moxley, who denied Blanton's request for an emergency injunction.

In an interview Tuesday, Moxley told the Orlando Sentinel he could not determine from her petition whether Troy's actions met the legal definition of stalking. He set a hearing for Feb. 16 so that he or another judge could question her further to make sure, he said.

"As a judge, you have to follow the law. You're not omniscient," Moxley said. "God bless her soul."

The shooting happened shortly after 1 p.m. Monday when Blanton and her husband, Brent, a fellow AT&T employee, returned from lunch. They parted and headed toward separate entrances to the large building on Research Parkway, the victim's mother, Connie Hassell of Festus, Mo., told the Sentinel.

Blanton called her husband on his cell phone when her attacker approached, Hassell said. Brent rushed to his wife of six months and found her on the ground. He started cardiopulmonary resuscitation, but it wasn't enough to save her.

"Alissa, I love you. I love you," he said. He cried out that they had a restraining order against the attacker and shouted for the ambulance.

"I just always taught her to be nice to people, even people you don't know. It doesn't hurt to smile at somebody, especially if they're having a bad day," HER MOTHER said.




DOMESTIC VIOLENCE, PREDATORS, AND STUPID JUDGES
Originally this was to be a single-subject article or two on domestic violence, not included on my master site navigation menu. Then I heard about the Alissa Blanton murder and the Judge who became the enabler for her slayer, I decided to expand the scope of the page.

The question begs: "why do liberal judges let so many criminals off so easy?" The ONLY answer I can come up with is: "Liberals feel sorry for criminals." On this page, I intend to present several cases, but more importantly, I shall give you my opinion as to what should be done  to stop this madness.
WHY DO THESE THINGS HAPPEN ? 

I don't know and I don't care. I want it to stop. No liberal Judges, unsympathetic desk sergeants, overworked counselors and case workers, or well-meaning but useless government programs. 

WHAT SHOULD WE DO ?

When a woman gets assaulted, the court would issue a restraining order. If the thug has any contact with the victim, ever, he is sent to jail for 90 days. The victim is issued a Glock 9mm handgun with a box of hollow point bullets ( hollow points won't pass through the asshole and injure others ) and she is given an extensive 89 day course on how to use it. Then she is issued mace, a bullet-proof vest, and a license to bag ( limit one ) the abusive offender; anytime; any place, open season - shoot on site. If she nails him, she gets a $10,000 bounty from the government, and a coupon for 20% off from a taxidermist.

Goodbye Earl.

Then we can set up anonymous 'shelters' for 
battered and abused (and dead) men.

Oh, you have a better idea? No? I didn't think so.
FIRST FOUR COMMENTS ON THE ALISSA BLANTON MURDER

There is ONLY ONE restraining order worth the paper it's written on and that's one signed by Smith & Wesson. For a woman at risk, it's safer to shoot first then worry about not getting killed later.

Translation: If some one is trying to kill you, kill them first. Instead of wasting time with some Donna Shalala judge, this girl should have bought her self an assortment of small arms.

Anyone want to bet this Judge is a Liberal. Just another case of the disease called Liberalism killing another innocent person. I'm sure this judge just figured this stalker could be rehabilitated, instead of jailed. Kind of like the way Liberal judges love to give probation to child rapists instead...

I think the Judge who denied this woman the protection should be held accountable, he should be removed from the justice system. My thoughts and prayers go out to this young ladies husband, family, friends. May you all find comfort by the memories you all made with her. God Bless

Take every third lawyer out and shoot them (remember - judges are lawyers).

JUDGE DESADE

     Her father, a Texas Judge, calls this 'punishment' for stealing - which she did. She downloaded music from the internet. Full disclosure; I used to download music from the internet - most of which is public domain,but I did download some more recent stuff until I discovered it was illegal.

    This isn't 'punishment', it's Sadism - most especially to a teenage girl. While i believe discipline is the purview of the parents, this is way over the line - and that 'judge' knows it. He should be prosecuted (but then there is the statute of limitations).
MARISSA ALEXANDER GETS 2O YEARS

When will this crap end? Marissa Alexander gets 20 years because she " fired in the direction of a room where two children were standing?" Under the 'Sawyer Rule." she could have saved the repair bill and just plugged the abusive husband. Oh wait. This was the first time he abused her - right?

(CNN) Saying he had no discretion under state law, a judge sentenced a Jacksonville, Florida, woman to 20 years in prison Friday for firing a warning shot in an effort to scare off her abusive husband. Marissa Alexander unsuccessfully tried to use Florida's controversial "stand your ground" law to derail the prosecution, but a jury in March convicted her of aggravated assault after just 12 minutes of deliberation.

The case, which was prosecuted by the same state attorney who is handling the Trayvon Martin case, has gained the attention of civil rights leaders who say the African-American woman was persecuted because of her race. After the sentencing, Rep. Corrine Brown confronted State Attorney Angela Corey in the hallway, accusing her of being overzealous, according to video from CNN affiliate WJXT.

"There is no justification for 20 years," Brown told Corey during an exchange frequently interrupted by onlookers. "All the community was asking for was mercy and justice," she said. Corey said she had offered Alexander a plea bargain that would have resulted in a three-year prison sentence, but Alexander chose to take the case to a jury trial, where a conviction would carry a mandatory sentence under a Florida law known as "10-20-life."
The law mandates increased penalties for some felonies, including aggravated assault, in which a gun is carried or used.

Corey said the case deserved to be prosecuted because Alexander fired in the direction of a room where two children were standing. Alexander said she was attempting to flee her husband, Rico Gray, on August 1, 2010, when she picked up a handgun and fired a shot into a wall. She said her husband had read cell phone text messages that she had written to her ex-husband, got angry and tried to strangle her.

She said she escaped and ran to the garage, intending to drive away. But, she said, she forgot her keys, so she picked up her gun and went back into the house. She said her husband threatened to kill her, so she fired one shot. "I believe when he threatened to kill me, that's what he was absolutely going to do," she said. "That's what he intended to do. Had I not discharged my weapon at that point, I would not be here."

Alexander's attorneys tried to use the state law that allows people to use potentially deadly force anywhere they feel reasonably threatened with serious harm or death.


ANOTHER STUPID JUDGE




SEPTEMBER 1, 2016

PITTSBURGH -- A Pennsylvania woman kidnapped by her husband who previously was charged with holding her captive has been found dead in a barn, while he is hospitalized with a self-inflicted gunshot wound, state police said Wednesday.

Troopers contend Kevin Ewing, 47, abducted Tierne Ewing, 48,at gunpoint from a home in West Finley Township about 12:30 a.m. Tuesday. Eight hours later, police found the car they’d been in abandoned near a wooded area and spent much of the day searching for the couple.

By 9 p.m. Tuesday, police surrounded a barn in West Finley Township several miles from where the woman was abducted.After forcing their way in, police found Tierne Ewing dead and her husband alive, but with a self-inflicted gunshot wound.

A press release Wednesday offered few details but said Tierne Ewing“died as a result of an apparent gunshot wound.” Kevin Ewing was taken to an unspecified hospital, and no information on his condition was released. The Washington County coroner hasn’t formally ruled on her death.

The case has raised questions about the way authorities handled charges pending against Kevin Ewing, who allegedly abducted her and held her captive from June 26 to July 8.

Tierne Ewing told police her husband beat and pistol-whipped her, spat on her, kept her hands tied with wire and branded her legs with a piece of hot metal, according to a criminal complaint charging him with kidnapping, aggravated assault, terroristic threats, false imprisonment and other crimes.

Tierne Ewing had staples closing a cut on her head -a home remedy, not hospital-administered - that she told police was caused when her husband hit her with a wooden gun stock. She escaped when her husband sent her into a credit union to withdraw money. She told tellers she was being held captive and they called police, who arrested Kevin Ewing in a vehicle outside, armed with a rifle, handgun and knife.

When he unexpectedly posted $100,000 bond on July 11, a prosecutor asked a judge to put him back in jail given the seriousness of the offenses, Washington County District Attorney Gene Vittone said.

The (Washington) Observer-Reporter says Common Pleas Judge Gary Gilman wouldn’t raise the bond amount - which would have put Ewing back in jail - but he did order Ewing confined to his home without weapons and made him wear an electronic ankle bracelet.

According to CBS Pittsburgh, police said Kevin Ewing had a monitoring device, which he apparently cut off on Monday. However, it did not send a signal or alarm back to the device that was monitoring it  

Tierne Ewing’s father said Kevin Ewing had harmed his daughter numerous times.

“She was scared to death of him.He threatened her all the time, and he beat her up several times,” Richard Kopko said after authorities told him his daughter was dead. “July wasn’t the worst. She’s been beat so bad before.”

“She told me years ago, ‘Dad, if you can’t ever find me, I’ll be buried on his dad’s farm,’” Kopko said.

Police have not yet charged Ewing in his wife’s death.
