He told the New York Post: 'I'm just hoping they drop this order of protection so we can get married. We love each other.

The DA’s office won’t let it go if a female is assaulted by a male and drops the charges. They step in as a proxy and go ahead and find him guilty anyway so why would they let a female that commits aggravated assault with a deadly weapon with intent to commit murder get by when the victim is a male?

I know of a guy that was stabbed by his wife in the chest and the blade nicked his aorta. He wouldn’t press charges.

I would have gotten the hint after the first or second time at most. No way he would have had to come back six more times.

She shot him because he wants to marry her? Couldn’t she just say “no?”
