Domestic Violence

The previous post made me curious... just how bad is it? How violent are men? (OK, some men.) The picture painted by a google search is not a good picture.

AP Wire | 12/13/2004 | Man charged with shooting death of pregnant wife (Here we go again.)

2 Girls Injured in Garden City Shooting (Ex-girlfriend and her friend)

Twenty-nine children have been killed by men taking revenge on partners in disputes over access (UK - gun free zone)

Not all of the news is bad...

Police use new powers to arrest 140 for domestic violence (UK -At least they are trying to do something.)

And women have started calling for change around the world

Zimbabwe: Women Activists to Appeal for Domestic Violence Legislation
(But of course the underlying situation is not good)
