Always tragic when a young person makes a mistake and pays the maximum penalty of death. At what point do we teach the physically weaker sex that any physical violence against them by the physically stronger sex is a relationship death sentence. The question of whether the cops could have done more to protect the 22 year old begs the question of why she was not doing a better job of protecting herself!
On the other hand it does appear that the parents of the alleged perp is doing everything they can to protect their own son. One can only hope that the authorities are investigating them for any law breaking violations by them. In the end parents of girls should be teaching them that physical violence against them is a complete non starter, while parents of boys should be teaching them that they will receive no quarter if they commit any violence.
Any that is all i’m going to say about that!
