    Its not that the other branches don't have demestic violence, it is just that Marines are held to a higher standard and will make the news for eveything and anything they do.

    Actually, "WOW" - the Army has a much higher DV rate than the Marine Corps (for the fact that they have a larger service I'd imagine). But considering we're surrounded by Marine bases I wouldn't expect to see much of that in the news.

    Now why would you headline this as a Marine. He's no longer a Marine. Even the JDNEWS that always slams us labled it as "Man" not Marine.

    A hammer on his pregnant wife. Doesn't get much worse than that folks. This world no longer has any values except the ones that are self serving. People have no control over themselves or their tongues. If it feels justified, they do it no matter the consequences later. If it feels good, just do it. People don't have any moral compass or sense of right and wrong anymore. I would love to see WITN highlight a story of something really good that happened somewhere in America. I am losing hope for this nations commen sense and decensy or lack of it.
