    in this case, alicia would have done more to protect herself, but she was under the impression that he was still in jail. she was never notified that he had been released on his own recognizance. she knew how violent he was. she told the police countless times that she was afraid for her life and the lives of her children. her mother wrote to the judge about the horrific beatings of the past that he had done time for. the prosecutor decided not to give the letter to the judge.
    alicia was not careless with her life or the lives of her precious children. the system failed her.
    you are so correct that it is society's business to protect women. i would expand that to protect every citizen, whether male, female, old, young, gay, straight. maybe it is time to let the pot dealers out of prison to make room for the animals who cannot get their violent instincts under control.
    i could go on and on, but i have not yet been to sleep, and i am utterly wrung out emotionally and exhausted physically. therefore, i will simply thank you for your excellent comments. just as any other disease, the focus on domestic abuse of all kinds should be prevention.

    I didn't get Jack from Abramoff...I'm not a Republican!
