They say that 6 women a day die at the hands of their significant other. That statistic seems impossible, how is that possible in this day and age? I believe the number for the simple reason that I personally know of 3 women who’s ex husbands tried to kill them in the last year. One woman was a fellow blogger, her and her young son were murdered by her ex just days after the restraining order expired and the man was given his guns back. He used them to shoot his ex wife, son and then himself.
Another woman in a nearby trailer park only 5 minutes from where I live was found murdered, the suspect was her ex, I have yet to hear if he was ever caught.
And now this. There was a restraining order out on the guy but he broke into the home, set it on fire and then attacked his ex wife. The 14 yr old daughter tried to defend her mother and was also attacked. Luckily the mother and her 2 children survived and are in the hospital. The man is still at large. The woman and her 2 kids suffered “non life threatening injuries” but they are all going to have to live with the inner scars the rest of their lives and even if the guy is caught and goes to jail it is not murder and he will be out in a couple of years. Where is the justice?
I have recommended people visit Kim’s blog, “My Inner Chick”, if they don’t think their lives are in danger. She has worked tirelessly to raise awareness about domestic violence ever since her sister Kay was shot to death by her soon to be ex husband.
Oh right just a few years ago in a sleepy little town in the interior a woman left her 3 children in the care of their father for his scheduled visitation. When she arrived home he was gone and her three children were dead.
I say it time and time again. Never under estimate what the narcissist/psychopath is capable of. So many women keep going back, keep letting him in the house, keep taking his shit and hoping he will change. You are playing Russian Roulette, you never know when he will snap, he can be planning it for months, years.
If they can’t destroy you emotionally they will do it physically, they have no conscience. Please if you are in an abusive relationship get out now and get help, go into hiding. Do not stay silent any longer.
This woman had gotten a restraining order, the police had dealt with domestic violence before with this family. I am so angry and frustrated that this continues. There has to be a way to stop it.
