Some persons find it incomprehensible that a woman would maim or murder her husband or boyfriend.

That thought may have crossed the minds of the persons who watched in horror as Debi Olson repeatedly stabbed her ex-husband, Mauricio Droguett at a Des Moines, Iowa shopping mall. Olson was charged with first-degree murder for the July 3, 2008 attack. "It's a classic case of rage, of hate for someone - it's very personal," explained Capt. David Struckman. "She definitely stalked this man."

Two weeks later, Cynthia McKay, 52, was sentenced to 30 years in prison for the gruesome murder and burning of her boyfriend Anthony Fertitta of Millersville, Maryland. One prosecutor described McKay as "the most devious defendant this court will come across."

And on August 1, Tomasz Matczak of Issaquah, Wash. died of a single stab wound to his chest. The assailant, his 19-year-old girlfriend, openly admitted to the deed.

In all of these cases, early intervention might have averted the tragedy. But where were these men supposed to turn?

All around the country abuse shelters have been established to help persons battered by partner violence. But with a handful of exceptions, these shelters maintain a strict "Men Not Welcome" policy.

she was not abused...she is a killer that belongs in jail. she needs to pay for the crime of killing a great person. Lisa is a killer a bad mother that doesn't even care for her own kid.

and i believed her so many times becuase shes an awesome crier, but when you put 2 and 2 together, it was her all along that was abusing him...he never once touched her and like someone said " the aggresser wouldnt ran away from fights to his parents house, he would fight" so tom in no way was the aggressor..he always ran to his parents house or friends house everytime lisa got mad, SHE WAS THE ABUSER!!

Brad Wong’s police blog about the vigil for Melissa Batten is an utter slap in the face of Tomasz Matczak, who was killed by his girlfriend, Yelizaveta Buraya. Worse yet, the hubris of a system out of control has the DV DIVA’s, along with State Attorney general Rob McKenna, and the EastSide Domestic Violence Program so-called DV “experts” turning this into a media circus.

These so-called experts violate their number one mantra of “blaming the victim”, claiming Matczak’s murder was a case of self defense. Curiously, the details are not yet known as Buraya roams the streets free to kill again, despite having a recent DVPO issued against her, both never actually having been served. EDVP’s silence on this issue speaks volumes. EDVP’s presence at this vigil speaks more of their utter hubris, because there is no excuse for domestic violence, unless you are a woman.

( more good articles i found..that are very much true to this case)
What bothers me most about this is the public perception through the manipulation of false statistics. This case is the poster child for the injustices that occur against many good men. Take the Buraya/Matczak case as public example number one. Will the Domestic Violence advocates come running to his aide? Nope. In fact, they'll blame the victim saying he deserved to die as it was a case of self-defense. Curiously enough, the situation under which he died still is not known, even though he had tried to serve that woman with not one, but two DVPO's.

I'm going to go wash now.....

Report violation

He seems not a bit interested when men die, like young Tomasz Matczak. Rob McKenna didn't attend his memorial......nor did the cops think it important enough to serve the TWO DVROs that our investigator uncovered that he got against that woman, Ms. Yelizaveta Buraya (yeah, I am naming names).

Instead of cooling her heels in the lockup, she goes free, after admitting to murder. Guess my bumper sticker is correct, there is no excuse for DV, unless you are a woman (or our attorney general

she has to lose cusody...who in their right mind will let a little girl be with a murderer or the family of a murderer..she deserves a normal loving life not one where her mom and grandma/grandpa abuse her

If you see that they abuse the little girl you should report or at least record or take pictures. When you are in court evidence is what they look at and if they have it recorded you don’t even have to testify

Did you hear about the guy that set the vet clinic on fire? or the lady that just got 10yrs for stealing for a senior home? they are in jail. But hey, stab your boyfriend in the heart, killing him and you are set free. It is unreal that a women can cry self defense (yet she has not a single bruise or scratch on her body) when she has a violent history and is set free while a family mourns the murder of their son. Let’s see how fast she skips out of the country. By the way, notice that even the newspapers are printing all of her lies, she can't keep her story straight from one to the next, is that not suspicion right there?
