    Rep. Sheila Jackson Lee (D-Texas) took to the House floor Tuesday night to criticize what she called a "demeaning" Pepsi ad that aired during the Super Bowl.

After the man smiles back, his girlfriend or wife gets angry and whips her Pepsi Max can at him. The man ducks, and the can hits the attractive jogger in the head. The ad is...

    She sat in the corner, on the floor with her head hidden between her knees. As she wept, her arms trembled over her head. Her 10-year-old daughter stood by with her baby sister riding on her hip, ready to translate her mother’s Spanish sobs. The young mother just couldn’t believe what had just happened. The man that she was living with, the father of her youngest child, had just beat her in a parking lot, in front of God, passers-by and her own children. She, along with her two little girls had been brought to my doorstep by a police...

    A Spotsylvania County jury yesterday decided that Janay Majors was justified when she shot and killed her husband last year during a domestic altercation. Majors, 27, shot 32-year-old Anthony O'Brian Majors six times in what the defense successfully argued was self-defense. Janay Majors was found not guilty of three charges--voluntary manslaughter, reckless handling of a firearm and discharging a firearm in an occupied building--following a two-day trial in Spotsylvania Circuit Court. Among the defense witnesses called yesterday was Barbara Majors, the victim's mother. She testified that she had been concerned about her son's temper for some time and had urged...

    FORT LAUDERDALE — A Miramar woman was sentenced Thursday to 10 years in federal prison for trying to hire a hit man to kill her ex-husband. Mercedes Morales, 58, talked about having her former spouse hacked to death with a chainsaw because she believed his betrayal led to her serving prison time for laundering drug money, according to court documents. Her plan for revenge came unraveled when it turned out the man she thought would kill her ex-husband was a government informant.

    For the past few weeks one of the the stars of MTV's hit show, "Teen Mom," Amber Portwood, has been the focus of a whole lot of media attention for her domestically violent behavior caught on tape towards the father of her toddler child Leah and boyfriend, Gary Shirley. Every news outlet from CBS to CNN to TMZ has written or spoken about the on-camera verbal and physical assaults that Amber has directed towards Gary. Gary, to his credit, has never physically retaliated. Although I don't know Gary personally I know thousands of "Gary's" in similar situations. Gary, like other...

    Kristin Ruggiero of New Hampshire figured it would be a slam dunk. The gambit worked like a charm during the divorce hearing; now she would bring the case to criminal court. Her husband Jeffrey, an officer in the U.S. Coast Guard, was an incorrigible batterer, at least that’s what she led to the judge to believe. That got him convicted of criminal threatening, and she won custody of their 7-year-old daughter. But Kristin Ruggiero wasn’t finished. One day, the woman bragged to her startled ex, “I took all your money, I took your daughter, and now I’m going to take...
