Another member of BlogBourne, @andriaperry touched up on Domestic Violence with her post called “Dealing With Domestic Violence”. I want to share the recent violence I am aware of.
The latest, as of yesterday, when my eldest son’s fiance heard about a neighbor had her stolen shorts worth $50.00.
Back story : They all live in an apartment complex where you can do your laundry in the halls. My son and his lady lives upstairs. There is no doorknob to stop anyone from walking in the apartment. The landlord is aware of this. The lady stealing laundry is downstairs. The same lady has a bad life. Besides being hooked on drugs, doing drugs in front of her kids, her husband sells her for sex, and stealing clothes. These two ladies have already been in a fight before.
When the fiance heard the neighbor stole her shorts. She decided to go down to the neighbors apartment and ask for them back. The lady was wearing the stolen shorts denied that the shorts were the fiance. Fiance knew it was pointless to talk to the lady. So, she punched her and a fight started. As she tried to take the shorts off the lady.
Someone in the apartment complex called the cops. The fiance got her shorts back and other clothing the lady downstairs stole. The lady downstairs was charged with theft. The fiance was charged with disorderly conduct.
The fiance did what she thought she had to do to get her property back. As she was told before it was a civil matter when calling the cops before. When she caused violence. The cops were able to intervene and she was able to get her things back.
Was violence really needed to get a pair of shorts back? How would of you of handled things if it happen to you?
