Not a day passes when we hear of another event taking place that shakes our faith in humanity. sometimes it is another conflict between nations but mostly it is occurring on our own streets. Rapes , bashings, drive by shootings. Drug and alcohol fuelled bashings have become second rate news as common as parliamentarians lies - crookery and sex exploits.
Listing these happenings would never end, but home invasions where innocent and vulnerable aged persons are beaten senseless for their meagre possession's by persons with drug habits is on the increase.
It is also a sad fact that domestic violence takes many different forms but there is one factor constant throughout: There is never any excuse for it .
Assaulting one's partner is becoming more common too this is unthinkable to level headed persons and yet because it has become more common, it is usually overlooked as simply a domestic disagreement usually sorted out by a cuddle between the sheets.
The problem is, little can be done to prevent the outcome of these types of violence which are mainly spontaneous. Only the due process of our laws can be applied in extreme cases , but the kiss and make up method may be a better way.
