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.

I think it happens more often than we realize.

I guy near where I live was shot 8 times by his girlfriend’s estranged husband and didn’t press charges.

This seems like a rather complicated way to commit suicide.

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?
