Re: “Domestic violence in Berryville; searching for help for battered women

Law enforcement blaming women for being murdered is insulting, dangerous, and misinformed. Women return to abusers for a variety of reasons, including threats again them/their children if they leave, lack of alternatives (housing, income) etc. Domestic violence is complex and varies on a case-by case basis. Much research shows an increase in violence/lethality when women assert themselves/leave their abusers. I guess even when women are able to leave, it's still their fault they get killed?

Fact is, our culture has a big problem w/ violence against women. Law enforcement, medical, mental health, and school professionals all need training on how to recognize the signs and refer for help. Boys should be raised to respect women as equals, and men who abuse should be held fully accountable. Check out http://www.thehotline.org/ for more info.

Re: “Sheriff deputy arrested for prostitution deal

one can certainly drive oneself from town to town and still be trafficked. a woman does not have to be in chains to be a slave. the psychological hold pimps have over women can be extraordinary. many women have their children or other family members lives threatened if they try to leave "the life." if someone had my child's address, and could get to her before I could, i'd be stuck.

Re: “Sheriff deputy arrested for prostitution deal

many prostitutes are trafficked, which means they are slaves to their pimps. they are sexually, physically and emotionally abused to keep them working/making him money. that combined with the fact that the majority of sex workers (prostitutes, escorts, porn actresses, exotic dancers) were sexually abused as children, makes it difficult to say many prostitutes are fully choosing such a life.

Re: “A doctor speaks out on abortion bills

I want to thank Max and Leslie for their continuing coverage.

Having lost faith in the AR legislature (and having several Senator emails bounce back), I called and emailed the governor's office today, requesting his veto if any of this dangerous, illegal crap makes it to his desk.

683-6428 is the staffer handling these calls, and you can email here:
