Domestic violence is no longer illegal.., now who would have thought we would come to this?

Domestic violence has become a political bargaining chip.



The Topeka City Council voted Tuesday night to repeal the city’s misdemeanor domestic battery law. The issue, which had become a bargaining chip in an awkward battle over local and county budgets, has so far seen the release of 30 abuse suspects, according to the Kansas City Star.

Very disturbing.

and wrong.

do you ever read more than one sentence?

city law was rescinded.

"The state has its own misdemeanor battery law, and the county prosecutor would still have to enforce state law."

so nothing has ceased to be illegal.


So you dont think its disturbing that they would do this?


why don't you read and digest the information before you jump to emotional dumbfuckery.

when you walk back your "illegal" statement, we can progress to the ramifications of austerity and budget fights.

syrenn is correct. Domestic battery is no longer illegal under Topeka law.

And again, WTF? I find it disturbing that this would be used in a budgetary fight.

Very very disturbing that they would use this as a political bargaining chip.

it is still illegal under kansas state law.

so, it is still illegal.

only the city law was changed.

that's why the prosecutor still has to prosecute.
