Go go Google and Google the term “domestic violence”. Then hit news. You are going to find a disturbing trend in the stories.
“Girlfriend shoots and kills abusive boyfriend.”
“Verdict in for (defender’s name) accused of killing wife”
“Wife had restraining order at time of her death.”
“(Offender’s name) was found guilty of the murders of his ex girlfriend and her new boyfriend.”
The trend is one that disturbing because every nine minutes another woman is a victim of domestic violence. The common injury of domestic violence that is not treated are concussions. Multiple concussions can lead to traumatic brain injury. Traumatic brain injury can lead to a life time of issues.
