I can't watch videos like this or really anything that includes violent content, but I watched this long enough until it got physical. The woman sounds entirely rational. The dude's silence is scary as ----. It's not the woman who needs to be committed.

That was a kidnapping the person who was filming it should be charged as an accessory.

"That was a kidnapping the person who was filming it should be charged as an accessory."

While reading it I had the same thought.

"I must serve honestly, faithfully, and if need be, lay down my life as others have done before me, rather than swerve from the path of duty."

Motto of Pennsylvania State Police.

I read the article and the noticed the caption under the imsge of him holding her down. zso, he's mattied? Now I feel like his wife should be under some form of witness protection. That guy is dangerous and should certainly never have a badge and a gun again.

#10 Republicans have destroyed numerous laws intended to make it harder for domestic abusers to legally obtain weapons.

Court Rules That Domestic Abusers Can Possess Firearms
The Fifth Circuit Court of Appeals voted to allow domestic abusers to have access to firearms, even if they have a restraining order filed against them.

I don't need to see videos on domestic violence. I see it in my job when I cover the ER. After decades of interacting with patients of domestic abuse, I always thought I'd become immune to it. Nope. I'm just as angry as that 22 year old newbie medical technologist that I used to be. And when I hear that one of the abusers got his just reward, I smile--to myself.

@#12 ... always thought I'd become immune to it. ...

Back in a prior life (4 or 5 decades ago), I used to work out at a local gym.

One of the others there was an EMT.

As we were moving iron against gravity, he used to talk about how his work affected him.

When I talked with him, he used to say that he wanted to help people. But what he saw and experienced may be too much for him to deal with.

After a while, he stopped coming to the gym. I had always hoped he was OK because his efforts to want to help people seemed to be so good to me.

But I never saw him again.
