FixedIt: Imprisoning a man for domestic violence is not interfering in a relationship

August 11, 2017by Jane Gilmore

NewsMail again on another spectacular failure to accurately report men’s violence against women.

The court was not keeping a young couple apart, it was doing the job it is supposed to do and imprisoning a violent offender who had breached a court order.

From the article:

“The officers stopped that Saturday night when they heard the woman screaming.

The man was holding her and both were on the ground and he was seen to push her. She was distraught and appeared upset.

The man returned a blood alcohol level 0.172.

Police objected to his freedom, saying he had previously committed a domestic violence offence against another person when he grabbed a large knife and threatened to cut the heads off people.

When arrested, he kicked windows of a police car.”
