If he is 19 and still in high school (99.999% of students here graduate at 18), that tells you something already.

What does it tell you? He may have a learning disability such as dyslexia or a developmental disorder such as ADHD.

He may be young, but he's not a youth. He's legally an adult. Arrest him and lock him up.

I wonder if you would say the same if a girl is beating her boyfriend and causing some injuries - and believe me this happens too. Not only men, but some women are violent too.

Not sure about that. Women have a choice. Young men looking for a girlfriend widely outnumber women looking for a boyfriend.

Young men who are just doing some ordinary simple job feel often to be lonely but are belittled and ridiculed by plenty of misguided girls, who are running after every male celebrity, dating only and try to get money out of rich men who are much older than they are or find the outsider life-style of violent men 'exciting'.

Of course when something is going wrong with such a relationship it's the fault of 'all men'. The woman as victim, the usual tearful story of innocent helpless girls.

There is no shortage of young men who will never harm a woman, but women have to change their criteria how they choose their men and reject violent men from the beginning on - not even willing to try.
