Maybe they should investigate if she deserved it or not, and lay off the guy until then.

And before any half-wit says I deserve a slap, I'll slap your momma with my cack... again.

A slap used to be acceptable for either sex when stopping hysteria. Maybe if both were taken into custody and a quick psych eval with drug testing done we could better track the issues of domestic abuse and battery and become better at identifying and treating it.
