An incredibly disturbing video of a man beating his wife.
This coward of a man had his son video tape the beating he gave his wife. I say coward because any man who hits a woman is a coward--PERIOD!

1. So are you saying women should not serve in Combat?
:shrug: I don't think hitting anyone is appropriate...

3. Way to miss the point
Square peg, round hole applies here.


The OGP was definately not saying that- but you brought your own baggage in.

6. I got the idea somehow that you didn't think women were equal to men
:shrug: How could I have ever gotten that idea?

2. Eww- and the daughter chose to go with him?
My mother was a victim of DV and all I can tell you is, if a man EVER put his hands on me I would beat the shit out of him and leave.
The very first time.

Of course, I have the "benefit" of having seen it happen to someone else, so I know it wont stop. I understand why many women stay.

Imagine the monster that would make his child videotape that? I hope he dies in prison, sick bastard.

4. That monster got 36 years in jail!
I hope people in there demand that level of obedience, subservience and discipline from him. I hope they make him call them "master" and beat him for imaginary offenses.

7. what is really sad is that is seems her daughter chose her abusive father
and may end up feeling she deserves to be abused as an adult.

10. Oh, heck, it's just a different culture.
Who are we to judge other people's desires to engage in wife-beating? After all, she said herself in the video that she made the "choice" not to leave. She probably liked it while it was happening. Having a husband who was so concerned about her moral character probably made her feel safe and cared about. There's even a certain nobility in bruises. So, I think everyone criticizing this man should be a little more tolerant of other people's belief systems. Who are we, educated priviledged people with marriages nothing like this one, to judge anyone else? We should just mind our own business. That's the right thing to do.

:sarcasm:

(Sound familiar...? Or perhaps this argument doesn't apply because these people are from a Western culture - we are allowed to criticize the poor behavior of people from the West, right?) :eyes:
