Too much meannessPosted Monday, August 6, 2012, at 3:10 PM
Talk about meanness, some of what we see on police reports is beyond ridiculous.
In the past week:
*A man attacked his wife because, he said, she had no food prepared or, she said, he didn't like what she'd prepared.
*A woman hid her boyfriend's beer to try to get him to stop drinking long enough to go to work. He knocked her to the ground -- apparently knocked her out, because she says she can't remember some of what happened -- then urinated on her and poured beer on her.
Note to heavy drinkers: The Southern stereotype of "redneck drunks" isn't anything to laugh at or be proud of, no matter how many country singers proclaim otherwise.
*A man who was refused entry to his girlfriend's house broke the door down, then came at her with a screwdriver after realizing she'd had a family member leave to call the police.
Too many people are out to hurt and get revenge on those from whom they feel like they aren't getting total respect. Sad.
