        when a young female is involved in a violent relationship she feels as if she has to say things to keep them happy. I was in a violent relationship many years ago and I remember telling my abuser i loved him just so that he wouldn't flip out and hurt me. This young girl is how old? Probably early to mid 20's????? I understand this is your brother but how do you justify a man putting his hands on a female??

    I think Justice for all is a nut case. What cop wants to be assaulted?

    I know the victim and the suspect and I am glad he is finally behind bars. He has been harassing the victim for a long time and has put his hands on her one to many times. He got what he deserves. Hopefully a judge will feel the same.

    many times in life we are faced with the reality that ones who we dearly love doesn't always do or say the right things. im hear to bring light to those who see a headline and become angry towards the issue. I too have made shred remarks towards others and I pray for my forgiveness. I would also like to add the love to this world. im not implying on the grounds of innocents, but to hold the love of my brother! we all have to deal with the pain. im coping. thanks to all that have prayed and thanks to all that I've prayed for. for the love of a brother is like no other. for the truth shall set us free!

      That's a pretty good attitude to take in this situation. I hope he sees justice, but I will also pray that he turns his life around.

    I am offended by the idea that the fact that this punk assaulted a cop is MORE newsworthy than the fact that he assaulted a young woman, which the headline seems to insinuate. Since when were cop's lives worth more than the life of a young woman? It's a cops JOB to deal with scumbags--getting a little roughed up during an arrest is part of the game in law enforcement. The assault on the officer is the lead and makes up the bulk of the story--and it is the LEAST newsworthy part of the story. The woman, on the other hand, was defenseless, and was being stalked, and she gets what, 2 lines? WITN, your reporters have some MESSED UP priorities...

    Did they have to shoot the man in his face with buckshot? Or is this a skin condition?
  • by Anonymous on Feb 27, 2012 at 03:46 PM
    Why did I know that automatically this was going to be the police officer's fault? Wow! You people just don't know what all is involved in being a police officer, fireman, etc unless you have done that job in your lifetime. Yes, there are good and bad ones but last I knew that is in EVERY job career!

    WITN: Why do you continue to disapprove posts that comply with the WITN rules. Typical liberal censorship.

        The posting system is very poor. I'd bet that most of the comments that are dropped are not due to moderators, but a faulty server/app.

    To anon @ 2:43: It's pretty easy to form an opinion on this one. The perp. has a history of domestic violence with the same woman, tries to break in through a window, flees, and assaults the arresting officer. What opinion did you get from that..... the guy is a nice guy? What an 'IDOT'. The perp is a loose cannon that needs to be locked up.
