53. Her "bad choice in mates"

Was incarcerated at the time of the decision to fire her.

Frankly, I find this insulting. Many of us make bad decisions, and we are surprised by personality quirks or worse in a mate we have chosen. You make it sound like anyone who was abused, should know they were going to be by their "mates" and deserve whatever fallout there is.

Nuts. Ridicules, outrageous. Society is best served when we come together to help one of ours who is the victim of any violence. You can put whatever reason behind the alternative, the safety of others, but again, the victim is ostracized with logical sounding excuses, but ostracized just the same.

You may count me in absolute opposition to that train of thought, now, and forever.
