Florida Man demonstrates why he's a fucking idiot.

Facepalm

An ex-con arrested for allegedly hitting and choking his girlfriend told Florida cops that he was not actually attacking the woman, but rather demonstrating “how I was previously arrested for domestic battery,” according to a court filing.

Police charge that William Shumaker, a 36-year-old convicted felon, “repeatedly choked his girlfriend of two years around her throat with both hands.” The alleged attack took place Sunday afternoon in the parking lot of a St. Petersburg convenience store.

When officers approached Shumaker, he reportedly “spontaneously stated ‘I was showing her how I was previously arrested for domestic battery.’” The purported demonstration, cops noted, left the woman with “multiple red marks on her left neck consistent with hand prints.”

5. Yeah, I wonder how it was that

he used both hands but only left marks on her left neck. Maybe she left the right neck at home prompting the attack?

Which domestic abusers will go on to commit murder? This one act offers a clue.

Strangulation inhabits a category all its own in domestic violence as a marker of lethality. A kick, a punch, a slap, a bite - none of these, though terrible, portend homicide like strangulation does. And while the link between mass shooters and domestic violence is increasingly recognized in the public arena, articles and op-eds, strangulation as a specific sign of lethality in the context of domestic violence remains largely unknown.
