A woman can make an accusation and automatically she is right! I disagree with our system! A woman is NOT ALWAYS right!

#9 and #10 I know what you went through #9 cuz I'm going through it right now, I was getting the crap beat out of me by my boyfriend and I choose to defend myself and because I did when the cops arrived I WAS TAKEN TO JAIL!!!!

I am 5' 5" he is 6' 4" he lied to police about what happened and the cops took me away, he was going to kill me and I knew so I did what I needed to do to protect my life and know I'm going through the hell you went through.

#10 You HAVE NO IDEA what the heck your talking about, if you did then in my case he should have went to jail - so unless you have been through your opinion is worthless

Opinions are like a-holes and everybody has one, speaking from first hand experience, like I said YOU HAVE NO IDEA when it comes to domestic violence.

Man... that sucks. Another ball player bites the dust. But have you ever noticed out of all the celebrity domestic abuse issues from both women and men... yes.. women do get domestic charges too... haha. But anyway.. Have ya ever wondered why a person would react the way they do? Like what started the fight? They say... behind every good man, there stands an even better woman. What stands behind a good man that hits his good wife? haha. Makes no sense does it. All I'm saying is... Don't believe everything you hear, and half of what you see. There is always two sides to every story. Unfortunately... the side we see is the end result. But ask yourself... what started this incident? Women always know how to break a mans spirit. And woman also know how to encourage a man to be the best he can be. But we live in a double standard society. Actions speak louder than words. But... words make or break spirits.

I'm a business Partner and friend of Junior Seau. What happen here is a tragedy. He has been a great Partner and a brother to many people in good and bad times. he alway thought things out like a man. He should be treated as a human being. Everyone of us have emotions. Bad things can happen to anyone of us through our emotions. No one knows what happens in a persons shoes unless you walk in those shoes. Let's not judge and hope that something good can come from this tragedy. Junior has raise Millions of Dollars for those who are in need. Let things heal and everyone move on.

Why don't we just wait for more facts before calling Junior a "has been", "punk", "abuser", etc. Most definitely, if Junior did abuse a woman or anyone for that matter, she or he would be messed up. So let's see what the facts are before spouting off the "pie hole".

21st Century Spartans : Does Violence Beget Violence?
Becky Lee - 09/23/2010

During ancient times, the Spartans were known as ruthless soldiers who worked together in a solid group to bring down their opponent. In fact, many male citizens were trained since early childhood under a government mandated system known as "agoge," where they were taught a curriculum focused on et...

Sensationalism sells, but is rarely completely factual. I'm a WASP, yet I have lived around the Samoan culture/community in the SD North County/Oceanside area all my life and I can not find a more family oriented group of people than the Samoans. When a very misguided Samoan juvenile murdered an Oceanside PD officer the entire Samoan community was outraged. Whatever happened with Junior Seau is another rare anamoly and we should wait for more facts before calling one side of the event a "punk." One of my friends works at his MV food place and you could not find a better employer.
