Welcome to reality Rob. Like this the world over. And this kind of behaviours starts in schools and never gets dealt with so they grow up believing that they have the right to attack someone if they so wish.

Only when schools start calling bullying by it’s real name, assault, that this kind of behaviour will die out. Time to apply all the laws of the land to all the people of the land. Age is not an excuse.

Fair point, David. Most people who work hard to pay taxes, for where this fellow’s going, don’t have the time or energy to go about trying to allegedly murder people.

Look at you all judging on something and people you don’t even know !!!

Everyone is so keen to assume and call people out after only hearing hearsay.

Shame on you labeling people with out proper evidence!!!!

I know this couple – it’s a real shock to read what’s happened, I’d never thought it possible. No specific details have been released so maybe the armchair detectives, who know nothing, should keep quiet.

What a piece of shit. I really hope this woman is free from him now, though I understand its never so simple. If you abuse your partner you are a piece of shit, most of the world hopes you slip in the shower.

So, I’m guessing that no-one has considered that this could be a case of self defence ? Men do get abused, both physically and mentally, but everyone always assumes that it’s the fella. We all have our breaking point. Has anyone considered mental health issues ? We all know that there is a complete lack of mental healthcare on the island !
Stop making assumptions and wait until you are aware of both the person’s involved version of events.Then, and only then are you able to make judgement.
