A Matter Of Opinion

Equal Opportunity Domestic Violence

Our editorial today examined how domestic violence legislation has changed over the years to make it easier for law enforcement -- not the family members involved in a fight in the home -- to determine whether a crime has happened.

In bygone days, when arguments turned violent, even next-door neighbors ignored the obvious. If the people involved said, "This is a family matter," most often it was left at that. Not anymore.

Anyone remember those bygone days? Perhaps couples next door whose loud fights were ignored? Ever wonder what happened to the kids in those households? Blog lines are open.
