I'm not so sure I can agree with J.T. about completely about the senseless death at Walmart that nothing could have prevented this. If that young had seriously wanted no part of this guy and this relationship to be over.

Why did she get out of that car? When he pulled in after they pulled in why didn't they just pull out and go. If he would have followed them, all she had to was grab her cell phone, dial 911 and tell that dispatcher what was going on. Throw on those emergency flashers tell that dispatcher I am State street and I heading to the police department and I need help. I don't think there is a police officer in Salem that wouldn't have broke record speeds to intercept them. She might be alive today if she would have been serious about ending that relationship. But instead she made a terrible choice and got out of that vehicle and got into an argument with him and he snapped and the rest was history. So sad...WOMEN learn from this.

As a woman, I couldn't agree with you more Ethomas38. Women are notorious for verbal and mental abuse. Women violate that protection order more than the person they get one on. Many women use that protection order as their tool to manipulate the relationship. I just can't bring myself to feel sorry for a woman that becomes a victim of domestic violence...a second time.

As usual your article states only PART of the facts! Fact is that 30% of domestic violence is committed by the female half and out of that 30% ONLY .001% is EVER reported to authorities because our system has trained everyone that the male is always 100% the aggressor and he will be arrested even if he has a gun shot or stab wound. Simply because the females know that the courts won't believe that she could or would assault the man.. Way to go Salem we only report what we want to News..
