    Woman killed in self defense

    Sometimes these stories end up much different than one would first think. When a woman is shot by a man (her fiance'), what would you assume have happened?

    Very sad indeed. Much loss here.

    Sad story all around, no matter what actually happened.

    Not a lot of details given. Domestic disputes are always ugly, and as this story proves, there are no winners.

    Hard to tell exactly what took place?

    They were making a video, and she is on the bed with two knives? Could have been a set up? Ok, Honey, I've got the video running, you take these two knives and sit on the bed, I'll sit on this end and video you! Bang!

    I'd have to watch the video and ask some more questions.

    Why do I suspect that the guy deserved to be stabbed with some knives?

    You know what though.. From what I've read, most of the violence we have is domestic violence. I think that also accounts for quite a lot of the murders we have. I think murders against strangers are actually a lot less common. Fortunate for me that I don't have any crazy, violent family members.

    But she does have a father. They are just as capable as a mother for providing love and guidance.

    Evidently the DA heard/saw something that made him decide it was self defense. Without having access to all the information, that is all we can go on.

    Sad story. How would you like to be an LEO and run into an incident like this while in progress? My hat's off to you, coppers. Some parts of your job are simply impossible.

    Well, it's kind of a vague story to say the least. We have no specifics other than the deceased's mother statement. And certainly nothing from law enforcement.

    As SFury said, domestic disputes are always ugly, and there's usually no winners.

    Sad situation. It's sad to see an A-Stan war veteran go down like that, regardless of who's fault it was. Wars end up having negative effects on people in a lot of other ways besides the obvious ones. Maybe she was having anger issues. Maybe it was something else altogether. Either way, it's a sad ending.

    There is only one call that all the officers I've ever met hate going on. Domestic violence calls.

    They are personal, ugly, and potentially very dangerous. By the time the officers are called in, the ability to de-escalate may have already passed. I don't envy the officers who go out and put themselves in harms way. It's a tough job that a lot of people do.

    Probably a lot of sides to this story, whatever really happened. Reporting is sketchy. A video may only show the last point of what happened.

    Everyone lost.

    It's helpful to remember that a substantial amount of what we call "domestic violence" is, in fact, mutual combat. Lifetime likes to peddle the poor woman tormented by her overbearing husband/boyfriend (and that does indeed happen with distressing regularity) but life is a bit more complicated. Women are generally smaller/weaker than men and in mutual combat, lose badly - regardless of who started it. I doubt we would find ourselves overjoyed to be acquainted with either of these people.

    Interesting. I'm willing to bet if the genders were reversed the comments here would have likely been very different...
