It is very depressing. You have to wonder what can be done in terms of education, if anything. Why do some men continue to see women as a possession, because that’s what this is about, I own you. Also need to be education for young girls so they can learn to see clearly men who are possessive early on, and don’t get stuck in the circle of violence and children. The men apologise, the women believe them (more through hope than anything) and the cycle continues. They need to learn very early on that the cycle needs to be broken for good.
Then when there are women such as the one at McDonalds who had left her husband a number of times: they need more support. She agreed to meet him. Why? Probably becasue she didn’t have someone screaming in her ear “don’t be a ■■■■■■■ idiot”. And she would have felt sorry for him.
The other young girl who was run off the road then beaten with a metal object while she lay dying in the car (nice type) had been to the police for help. They cant do anything without laws and support agencies.
Funding has been cut for support by this government because the age of entitlement is over.
But really you have start with 8 to 10 year olds - girls and boys.
And you need to get to the ethnic communities because it is the women in many of those communities who are bringing up sons, putting them on a pedestal believing that they can do no wrong that can contribute to the problem.
