Romney Photo Spurs Domestic Abuse Incident



JULY 31--Suspicious that his live-in girlfriend was planning an affair, a Tennessee man confronted the woman after spotting a photo of an unknown guy on her Facebook page, according to a police report.

Lowell Turpin, 40, “angrily demanded to know who the male was,” reported Anderson County Sheriff’s Department investigators.

Crystal Gray, 38, “replied that it was a picture of Mitt Romney.”

The perp tried to smash her notebook and then punched her in the face. He was arrested for domestic assault.

He remains in jail on a $1000 bond.

1. I can't understand why this good looking guy would feel threatened by Romney...

 

He obviously has a lot more personality as well.

2. There is a lot of joking about this story.

We take domestic violence entirely too lightly. All violence, really. I'm just glad there apparently weren't any kids around to see it.

3. You're absolutely right, on all points.

I do think the joke is that the guy couldn't identify Romney. Not his actions following it.

5. Oh yes, definitely.

I guess the fact that he flew into a violent rage over it just hits a nerve with me. It's hard for me to see any humor in those situations.

4. That is someone looking for a reason, any reason

to commit violence. I hope his partner is long gone by the time he gets out of jail.
