Dodgers beating suspect Marvin Norwood should know how to deal with his aggression -- because back in 2009, he completed a 52-WEEK domestic violence program, TMZ has learned.

As we previously reported, Norwood has a long rap sheet -- and was convicted on a spousal abuse charge in 2006 ... over fours years before he allegedly beat San Francisco Giants fan Bryan Stow within an inch of his life.

The judge in the 2006 case sentenced Norwood to 180 days in jail and ordered him to complete a domestic violence program. And according to court docs, he served at least 118 days ... and completed the program.

Norwood is now involved with another woman -- Dorene Sanchez -- who was also arrested in connection with the Stow beating.

Those programs rarely work. Most of the people in one of those "classes" have been in the program more than once. That alone should tell judges to stop perpetuating the idea that it does and give them some real punishment.

Why do I get the feeling that this s*** won't be convicted and later be cast in a reality t.v. show?

Isn't this the same person who's Mom told TMZ:

Marvin's mom Diana Page tells us, "He’s a good son and not capable of this type of behavior."... According to Diana, "[Marvin] and his father used to have opposing views regarding sports teams, and they used to tease each other, but it never, ever got heated."

What is the fate of uncontrolled animals that attack and injure/kill people?

This "man" is an animal.

Yeah, Just another upstanding citizen, who is totally innocent. Let me guess, wrong person at the wrong place. I wasn't there it is a case a mistaken identity. In any other state besides California, with his criminal past, he would still be in jail, where dirtbags s*** like this belong. What does someone have to die before California gives out ya harsh sentence, and actually maes someone serve that sentence.

Lock this s***bag up and throw away the key. Then let him beat the crap out of his fellow inmates. He does not belong in society.

Lock him and his buddy up for life. These guys willnever learn to control their anger until they kill someone.

Well... I guess you could say it was technically successful since he is being accused of attacking a stranger, not a family member or girlfriend.

Dude got drunk, was having a good time, had a little attitude going because the Giants won it all and was just looking for someone to say something. When he got in the parking lot, he probably told Stow the Giants sukk! Then Stow probably told him to shove it up his azz. He probably said, "What did you say, little %^&*#?" looking to provoke a fight. And the rest is history.

If this anger management course would have been effective, he would have walked away after he knocked him out if not before. I say they go after the Attempted Murder and give them 25 to life to keep them off the streets for a LONG time!

I love how his mother can't believe he would do something like this and insists that he is innocent! She said, "He doesn't have anger management issues anymore." Lady, your son is a monster. Um, allegedly. Wake up!
