Umm .. Wake Up

What I find interesting about the King County Councilmember Jane Hague incident is that nobody seems to make the connection between this woman's behavior towards police and what her behavior is likely like within her own family.

As the Seattle Times quoted:

The arresting officers "did not deserve the rude and abusive behavior. I was very angry that night," said Hague. "I was angry at myself, I was angry at the situation and I took it out on them. There is no excuse for that."

It makes one wonder how at least half of domestic violence incedents start. The language used by Hague was psychologically abussive and demeaning. Even the Eastside Domestic Violence Divas classify psychological abuse as domestic violence.

I doubt the connection will ever be made, but it would be nice if people would wake up and get this topic out of the gender polical realm.

Musta hit a nerve :) You must be making them angry. Good for you. I believe 'turn-about' is fair play.
