I don’t like writing domestic violence stories. I know that their publication has effects on families.
But if the allegations are true, then the offender deserves the blame, not anyone else.
I often look at Optic editions from decades ago, and you see plenty of crime stories. What’s missing is reports of domestic violence. Does that mean such offenses never occurred back then? Of course not.
In those days, law enforcement, the media and society in general considered domestic violence a private matter. It was between a man and a woman.
