Domestic Violence; The Hidden Secret

There is a hidden secret in homes all across America that most people chose to ignore. This is my place to share my thoughts, views and occassional rants about the issue of domestic violence. It is my hope that this blog will prove to be an educational tool that will shatter the myths and misconceptions surrounding the issue, raise awareness and motivate all members of society to take a stand against violence against women.

Ugh, can it get any worse?

Just when I was thinking I didn't have anything else to write about here, some jackass gives me a reason to keep going. I'm not sure which part of this story disturbs me more; the fact that he attempted to hire someone to kill his wife of six years or the fact that he wanted it taken care of last week, as to not disturb his Christmas celebration. Are you friggin kidding me, man? How the hell can this man even dream about celebrating Christmas after he would have payed someone to kill his wife? Last time I checked, Christmas is the celebration of the birth of Christ; the savior of the world, if you are a Christian. Somehow I'm thinking that Christ and the murder of a spouse should never be discussed in the same sentence. But then again, that could be just me.

Here's the background of the story; guys family arranges his marriage to this woman six years ago. They have a 2 year old child. He owns his own company and recently purchased a 1 million dollar life insurance policy on her. He approaches a friend about killing his wife. His friend realizes he's clearly out of his mind and goes to the police. Cops get involved and send an undercover detective to see if this guy is for real. Hell yes he's for real. He gave the cop a deposit for the job and instructed him to kill her quickly when she's in the city the next day and get it over with. Why the rush? Well you see, he didn't want to disrupt Christmas for the family. Yeah, cause the death of his sons mother, his parents daughter in law and his in-laws daughter, sister, etc, will all be but a passing memory come Christmas, which is NEXT WEEK at this point. Excuse my choice of words here but this guy's a real asshole, plain and simple.

So, he gets arrested. Police have everything recorded and on video. They have the money he paid the detective. What does his family say at the arriagnment? Can you take a guess? Okay, I'll tell you..."my son is a good man" says his mother, "I don't understand any of this" she proceeds to say. Sorry lady, but if my kid ever contemplated killing his spouse, I'd let him rot in jail and I'm pretty sure the last thing I'd be thinking is he's a good person. Meanwhile, the night he was arrested, his poor unsuspecting wife got worried because he never came home and filed a missing persons report on him.

My heart goes out to this woman because I cannot even begin to imagine what I'd be feeling if I ever found out my husband was planning on having me killed. And, it doesn't look to me like she's going to get any type of support from her in-laws considering they're sticking to their "he's a good man" story.

Sad, really sad that there are people with such little regard for human life. If you're not happy in your marriage, how about this for a novel idea...DIVORCE. Oh that's right, divorce is no good, it'll bring shame to the family. It's just better to kill her or have her killed.

Disgusting, simply and utterly disgusting.

I think he didn't want to divorce her because if he did, she gets half of everything. Money is still the root of all that is evil.

Good point, something to definitely think about. I have heard too many men use the "it's cheaper to keep her" line when talking about wanting to divorce their wives.
