HB 1128 Pro-"Wife Beater" Bill Holstered by TNGA Rep. Timothy Hill



TNGA Rep. Timothy Hill (R-3, Blountville) quietly withdrew his pro- "wife beater" HB 1128 legislation on Monday, February 25, 2013. The Hill HB 1128 legislation would have compelled Tennessee courts to establish ""clear and convincing evidence" before assigning order of protection issues to a party within a domestic partnership, a legal standard much higher that the "a preponderance of the evidence" legal threshold currently utilized by Tennessee state courts:

SECTION 1. Tennessee Code Annotated, Section 36-3-605(b), is amended by deleting
the language "a preponderance of the evidence" wherever it appears and by substituting
instead the language "clear and convincing evidence"...

Rep. Timothy Hill (his brother, Matthew Hill, also serves within the Tennessee House of Representatives) was himself previously married and later divorced during April, 2009 at the Sullivan County Law Court in Bristol, Tennessee.

2. ??

Don't bother. I already did.

So he's divorced? Did wifey ever say why? I'm a little old lady almost 68, but I believe absolutely in teaching self defense to women and raising girls to respect themselves enough to fight abuse, and I don't mean the stereotype "like a girl". Luckily for one of my generation, I grew up in a male-rich environment where I earned the nickname "the Sicilian" (even though we're Irish to the core) from my fondness for kneecaps. Timidity and submissiveness have no proper place in the female psyche. Male abusers understand only one thing: sharp manual physical retaliation. I don't mean killing, but there are plenty of ways to make them wish you had.
