The guy looks like he's from another time, maybe the period when Neanderthals roamed. Simply a repulsive individual. Hard to imagine any woman being with him. Damn shame.

No woman should ever be treated this way. I hope he does some serious, I mean serious, time. He should spend the rest of his life behind bars.

This should be the real story: "The cash-strapped sheriff’s department in the county had been forced to lay off 23 of its 29 deputies after losing millions in federal aid. The remaining six officers had their shifts slashed to eight hours Monday through Friday."

AND the gun grabbing liberal kom bi yah PC people wonder why gun ownership is up? Sadly with budget crunches, a police force spread thinner, more crime driven by drug use and desperate people due to ever increasing economic and and uncertainty this type of response from the police will become more common.
This poor woman who was assaulted has experienced where this country is heading to a further break down in society.

You are leaving out the fact that gun rights activists are heavily into the tea bagger's movement and are often the biggest supporters of slashing government spending.

So, the paradox is that these fools scream and scream about cutting taxes and government spending and than when it happens complain they need a gun to protect themselves because there are no more police. Intelligent people would try to work for a more efficient government that at least covered these kinds of critical needs rather than trying to argue that "all government is bad". However, intelligence and some political groups (like the tea baggers) are terms which are oxymorons.

Do you actually think police would've gotten there instantly?

The "ex-boyfriend" apparently had a criminal record, and a history of anti-social behavior; since these incidents took place in a relatively small community, the local cops, and probably those familiar with the "street scene" probably recognized him on sight.

This is one function for which mandatory tattoos, preferably right across the forehead, would serve a useful purpose; no matter where this POS went, he would be instantly recognized, stigmatized, and shunned, for what he is.

I'd love to see the same thing done to child-support delinquents and habitual public-assistance abusers.

According to the comments on the Daily Mail article the woman herself was convicted of meth possession, which is a felony in her state. Having a gun may not have been an option. At the risk of sounding crass, when you lie with the dogs....

Your use of the prejudicial term "tea bagger" tells us all we need to know, in addition to the fact that you don't know what you're talking about.

While no one condones what he did, there is probably some truth to the fact that she knew the kind of person he was and had a relationship with him anyway. Birds of a feather and all that stuff. But that doesn't make the crime any less reprehensible .
