then she got him beat up by thugs cos she lied on him to them...she isnt serving for "domestic abuse" but she did get done for assault lol. his mum got her arrested.

i say lol only because Im happy she got arrested btw. :rolleyes:
Funnily enough I knew of a girl the same, she pulled an older guy at a party then made out he'd assaulted her (bollox) so her and 4 known wrong'ns beat the guy to death in a park. The guys all went down for manslaughter, she walked off scot free because the judge didn't want to interfere with her applying for a job as a flight attendant.

Was the judge male because male judges are known to give female defenses lower sentences than female judges.

This is a tricky issue. Obviously nobody should be permitted to inflict harm upon an innocent, not should anyone have to suffer harm. But when you've got an adult making an adult decision to move in with someone and then lies to cover up, what should the police do? It wasn't as if Alex had been imprisoned indoors.

In this case, Skeel was also worried about his son being in the 'care' of someone so violently abusive, which is sometimes even explicitly used as a threat in abusive relationships. Perhaps something can be done here

I'm not sure I quite understand what Skeel's point was with not encouraging men to talk about things or leave. Unless it becomes so prevalent that it does become an everyday occurrence, people aren't going to be discussing it casually. And if it does become so commonplace, doesn't that 'normality' make it more difficult to get out?

Yeah 'John Alastair Cameron, Lord Abernethy' apparently. She literally got away with murder, organised the attack and played an active part in it, yet got an absolute discharge.

Be careful with those statistics. Often they will lump together different offenses or use very broad definitions to inflate the numbers. For example, that '4 out of 10' figure, wherever you heard it from, might include things that wouldn't even legally be considered sexual assault. It could have also come from some small, unreliable survey. The numbers bounce around hugely depending on the source, method, definitions, etc.
The number of dodgy surveys around are insane. I remember an opinion poll on the future of the BBC stating that 80% of the public preferred watching the BBC. Once you looked into it, there was something like only 40% because it was 80% of people who did something, of people who did something else.
