NO real man, regardless of their color, religion, etnic background would EVER hit a woman, muchless all this!! Ridiculous!!!!!! Society is sooo twisted and somehow we are experiencing MORE of this nonsence since the whole Chris Brown & Rihanna thing happened!! We have put him and other celebrities on a pedestal after being given a "free pass" by our judicial system. NOW without ANY anger management or therapy their released to strike again, except this time, it may be worse!!!! The anger this men and some women have does NOT just go away in a day, week, or year!!! This takes TONS of therapy and real life punishments to even come close to "fixing". They should be treated as a Sex Offendar and be watched as well!! NO EXCUSE FOR ABUSE ON ANYONE!!!

Let's keep the language clean AND free of racial comments. One comment has been removed for this.

No voiced concern for the plight of the female victim? Only worried about clean language and your perception of racial comments? Sorry if I offended your sensitivities Mr. Scott. How about this? What a shame it is that little boys like Timothy A. Nettles find it necessary to assert their manhood by assaulting defenseless women. Oh, and very well said Stacey.
