Alabama Domestic Violence Educator: Walk Away

Domestic violence is no laughing matter. In my defense, I’m Jewish. We laugh to stop from crying. Allegedly. Anyway . . . “If they tell you that they’re going to kill you, believe them. If they hit you with an object, pull a gun on you, a knife or some kind of deadly weapon and say ‘I’m going to kill you if you leave, if you stay.’  You know, it’s the thing that we put off as ‘I can change this person’ or if a family member sees it and says ‘I know they’re just upset right now.’ Believe it when somebody says ‘you’re going to die. It may not happen today, it may not be tomorrow. But more than likely, it will happen sometime.” Ain’t that the truth. And I swear I’m not making up the name of the domestic violence expert and law enforcement educator making the prediction: Sunny Slaughter. [via]
