This is one of the first definition's of a violent crime of a violent crime I found and I can pretty much agree with this at face value.
In the FBI’s Uniform Crime Reporting (UCR) Program, violent crime is composed of four offenses: murder and nonnegligent manslaughter, forcible rape, robbery, and aggravated assault. Violent crimes are defined in the UCR Program as those offenses which involve force or threat of force.
Situations will always be a little muddy, every scenario opens itself up to being difficult but that doesn't mean we shouldn't try to change things to make it better than what it is.
Also I went back and read Timids post, if what he is saying is true if anyone should be charged with DV it should be old girl that went upside his head with a PS3 obviously but his scenario doesn't make anything I have said so far untrue. Also not every single woman is crazy like the woman he described if what he is saying is true and that should be considered as well with this cases. We just can't go with the assumption that she might be crazy and trying to screw the guy over, it should be considered but in now way should it guide someone when trying to figure out what happen because then you'll just be looking for every little thing you can to support what you already think happened.
Oh I wasn't trying to say anything you said was untrue. I was just having a discussion with different points to think about.
No you cant assume every woman is crazy but you also cant assume every man accused of DV is some violent dude. Alot DV cases aren't clear cut, the cases involve mutual aggressive behavior.
Human nature is play the victim when possible.
In Hardy case, She was on coke, he had been drinking champagne. Theres mutual "bad" witnesses on both sides. 911 calls on both sides. Both of their stories could be true from different point of views.
Me personally I think its somewhere in the middle.
