Give this piece of... a deserved sentence for the crime he committed, and not a slap on the wrist.

Cheating on some one is not an excuse to beat on a woman. There is never an excuse to beat on a woman. The offense is assault causing serious injury. He should be given jail time for this offense although, it's unlikely he will.

Isn't that what they all say? You can almost see the police officers feeding those words into his mouth.

If this guy would assault her for cheating on him, he deserved being cheated on, wouldn't you say? Now HE can be assaulted for cheating on his prison mate.

I think you meant 'cheating on some one is not an excuse to beat on another person. There is never an excuse to beat on another person' - right?

Disillusioned, do you think it's okay for a woman to physically assault a man if (she believes) he cheated on her?

Another cowardly little boy who thinks he's a man, and has the right to beat his girlfriend when his fee fee's are hurt. I hope to dog this is a lesson for her and she kicks him out of her life for good.

Why are these kinds of crimes showing up in the news. Nothing else in the news for the entire country? Women beat their men all the time when they think they are cheating. Even in Japan. Do these need to show up on national news?

It is with a heavy heart I must say the girl has poor taste in men. With a stroke of luck, perhaps some billy clubs will mysteriously fall on his face while he is in incarceration. I just hate it when a child rapist or woman beater trips on the stairs and geta hurt..,

Cheating on someone is not an excuse to beat on anyone. If this guy assaulted her, he should do some time.

Oh yeah! There’s a “I was drunk.” defense. That never gets old.

How many girls beat their boyfriends for cheating or for even being paranoid and thinking their boyfriend is cheating that go unreported? A lot. Been on the receiving end needing stitches to my face and I didn’t even cheat. And the police didn’t even do anything after I reported my psycho ex.

So it happens to men and women. Moral of the story, don’t lay a finger on anyone and walk away.

He thought, he thought. Yeah, yeah. Get blitzed atomic and then get paranoid and beat the you-know-what outta your GF.

Save the excuses, chump! Romance is a 2-way street of mutual respect and trust of which you have none of. She's too good for an abusive sack o' crap like you.
