This domestice violence will continue to occur until men get fair treatment by the judicial system in divorce cases.

Too small a sample to be statistically valid.
The statasics were released by a special-interest group at the start of the Legislative session when money is to be handed out.
They counted as Domestic Violence a cop who was shot in the line of duty, and whose partner shot the killer. That's not what most people would consider an example of murder-suicide, nor of domestic violence targeting women. Including that death in the statistics serves to pump up the numbers but undermines credibilty.
Conclusion: ignore this: it's rent-seeking propaganda. And Rosario fell for it.
Agreed. But.... We're #1, We're #1!!!!!

Either we lead in this area or the cops really suck at spotting double murders.

This story is written on non-empirical data by a group that is formed with your tax dollars. It is an evil group causing many problems and solving none under the veil of safety for Woman and Children (sounds great, but anything based on propoganda and lies is not a good program) Read "The Twelve Things They Don't Want You To Know About Domestic Violence" It is a book written on the real issues of domestic violence and based on empirical data provided by both woman and men in research institutes and law enforcement data. This Coalition for Battered Children and Woman, sounds good, but is sucking your tax dollars and breaking up families and increasing the violence levels. Stop them.
Wow so much hate, everyone has an agenda wither it be for the good of humanity or self serving. Sadly, it is clear what your agenda is.

You know, I'm not usually a fan or Ruben's, his blindly liberal viewpoint is usually so biased as to be unreadable. In this case his subtle point is to expose the truth and I salute him.

He makes the point that the statistics are too small a sample to be meaningful, yet each is a terrible personal tragedy. The group is doing what it's formed to do, draw attention to it's cause, and Ruben give them their platform, yet he grounds the whole situation with the reality that we probably couldn't have done much more to prevent those deaths.

Throughout the article I kept waiting for the zinger, the appeal for money or dumping the blame on someone or some system.......but it wasn't there. My hat's off to Ruben for his message and his restraint.

A lot of women don't leave men who hurt them, and then it gets used as propaganda by other women to screw over men who don't hurt women.

Doesn't bother the anti-men court system Tiger Woods got beat up by a golf club. Now it's just about his money, divorce and sticking it to him.

Really? Propaganda? You don't find the fact that men murdering women is just plain barbaric.

I don't feel sorry for women who date men who kill them. Most of these cases involve a woman who chooses to maintain a relationship with a total loser with a criminal record.

Most of the recent Newspaper stories like this involve women who stay with men who have abused them in the past or domestic abuse on their criminal record.

Rosario is like Al Franken on acid. What can you expect?

The North Saint Paul Cop died because he was stupid. Stupid people die all the time.

The Female cop lacking strength always puts the gloves on but almost never can get a suspect to submit unless they shoot them; in this case she did 5 times, why no all 15 rounds? Keep firing until the twitching stops.

That'l teach him!

The Freakin girl friend is you classic welfare whore.
