Have you ever responded to a domestic dispute? One doesn't beat the shit out of herself. It usually is at the hands of her husband, especially when they are foreigners from Central Asia, the Middle East, and Mexico. It's worse with those from Mexico because there is usually alcohol abuse by the offender and weapons.
