He abuses his wife, pulls her down the street by her hair & is released on $1,000 bond? Great justice system.

When I read this story I was apalled and disgusted. I was so furious as it reminded me of what happened with my ex boyfriend a year ago. He dragged me all over his house and almost killed me. What did the SF Justice system do? They dismissed the case even though I had a mountain of evidence against him. The justice system will NOT protect women from monsters like these. Instead they enable them to get out and do it all over again. It disgusts me.

They pay these guys to be tough, mean, and agressive; however, they forget to leave it behind when they leave the playing field to go home to their partner.

Really???    

"I don't know, but maybe you women should wake the hell up and learn how to pick better men. These dudes don't become abusive over night, the signs are there. Maybe, if they spend less time looking at a guys wallet and all the free sh4t they can get, and more time observing the guys behavior, it might just do the trick in most cases. Just a thought. "

So this b@stard who is the size of two refridgerators jumps on his girlfriend - who is probably 110 lbs soaking wet - and tries to drag her down the street by her hair but you manage to find a way to blame the girlfriend!! Black men are so physically and mentally abusive to women but then always want to complain about the way a woman is treating them like they always do about black women.. I have never understood how a black man can beat a woman to a pulp but not be able to stand up to a man without a weapon or a team.. SMH! Why don't you oversized bullies beat on a man for a change instead of RUNNING!

What has skin color got to do with domestic violence?

Stop using race as an excuse - get up off your but, get a job, and get as far away from this type of man as you can get. Instead, you loser women choose to hang around and verbally antagonize and emotionally abuse these guys for revenge,

Move on ......... get away from him. GROW UP.

She knew what she was getting into when she married him. Probably not the first time this has happened. She's in it for the cash so she put up with it. This idiot just played right into her hands by doing it in public view and getting arrested for it. Now she will take his money for sure.
