The guy was a sick ****, and perhaps mentally ill. I make no excuses for him. I think what he did was disgusting. I know a lot of women who have dealt with domestic violence. I have seen domestic violence, and I constantly see stupid ass people saying that those women are dumb for not getting out. It's hard to get it. It's dangerous to get out. Unfortunately not many people try to actually empathize with the victims of domestic violence or rape for that matter. A lot of people don't actually understand DV, and I dearly wish they did.
They guy that killed that family in Texas also had a history of DV.
Instead of trying to educate ourselves as a society on DV and memorializing the victims in a positive way, we are more concerned about the perpetuators.
