It's about damn time! Watching her hit him on television made me cringe. It turned my stomach just watching it. I'm glad someone finally did something. Domestic abuse is wrong no matter if it's a female or male that gets the abuse directed at them. I hope FINALLY someone starts taking domestic abuse against men a little more seriously.

Both guys and girls should be sterilized the day they hit puberty. If you want a child, you MUST get a license. Then there would be no more of the bottom of the gene pool breeding. Then we wouldn;t have idiots like this person because their parents would never be allowed to breed.

I hope they throw the book at this bitch. the police have been doing this to men for years now. i hope this bitch isn't given any breaks just because shes been on t.v. if the tables were turned and shirley was the one locked up i'm sure the courts would make an example out of him.

Seriously shouldn't the FCC shut down this show on MTV? I mean I have a tough time believing Janet's boob on the Super Bowl show has caused more damage to society or indecency than this show has. Seriously MTV/Viacom should be embarrassed by the headlines these people on their show have created.
