But seriously folks, maybe she is an abused wife, and did it in self defense. Give her a medal and a week off with pay.

We don't know all the facts. IF ABUSED, HYPOTHETICALLY SPEAKING ! Any human who stays with any partner and is being abused deserves the abuse. There's always an option to leave ! ALWAYS ! There are plenty of resources for any abused spouse. Excuses are over ! It boils down to plain old ignorance on the victim.

But one fact is for sure. She's gonna be tossing some big momma's salad in prison sooner than later. She deserves any and all time that the judge is gonna hand to her.

My Question to her: Was it worth losing your freedom ? You did the job half-a*s'd, that in itself should add more prison time to your ignorant decision.

You all assume that because he is an officer that is why.. that he abused her, and so on. and that he is abusive as a police officer. Did it ever cross your mind that she might be the abusive one?

NOT ALL MEN ARE ABUSIVE many of them are abused, and for the person going by life. it is not always as easy to leave when you have been abused or being abused.
Last but not least WE DO NOT KNOW THE REASON for what happened.

Just hope this officer comes out okay and that his wife is charged and gets the help she needs to deal with her anger, and hope something like this don't happen again.

I think we can assume that she will claim abuse just as Mary Winkler (the Tenn preacher's wife) did to literally get away with premeditated murder to avoid her husband from finding out she lost $17,000 in a scam.

The question is....was there a history of abuse if she does claim it?

Still, there are women's shelters in almost every major city in the United States for women. There are none for men but perhaps if there were shelters for men, he could have gone to one when she became abusive which would have kept him out of the hospital and her out of jail.

Folks, women are as abusive as men in domestic settings and it is only by looking at BOTH sides that the problem will be addressed.

Sam, this is exactly what the defense will want you to believe. In reality, women are as abusive as men and they also use weapons more and they hit first more often.

Even if she was abused...does that give her the right to take the law into her own hands?

Do you realize, there are tens of thousands of abused men who never hit back but they were the ones arrested when the police were called. Should these men have been blown away too while she could claim she was abused because he is no longer here to defend himself.....such as Matt Winkler?

I live life happy and i try to make comedy out of tragedy, it's my way to deal with society. To bad it was your bro in law that died and not you. Your bro-inlaw and i probably would have had good times and laughter together. It's the funny happy people who die, and sour a*S's like you who live. But i'm glad heaven has a comedian ! They need sarcastic humor there too.

However, sam ! You do know how to read better than most ! YOUR RIGHT, where the hell did it say the victim was a cop ?? But i still don't think that you should badger your dead brother in law, he's not here to defend himself, that doesn't earn very good points with the man above !

He died homeless, alcoholic. I just have a problem with Guys that beat their Wives, but, as some say, they are just as bad. But they do it with words, had one like that. Want to change a guy from the gitgo. So after the divorce in "74, haven't been married since, and have had some good relationshiips, but no legal ties. And before anybody says "common law" marriage, the law in Co. reads the INTENT to get married, which I never did. Some states are different of course.As they say, misery loves company. Seems to me if you have a wife that has a temper make damn sure the gun is hid from her. PS, not much faith in "the man above", seems to me if there was one he would do something...now you Christians can jump on that statement---

Don't worry people. Just the fact that she was charged with assault and not attempted murder immediately shows she will be fine. If it were a man that shot his wife in the stomach, he would have been charged with attempted murder.

The state of Colorado ALWAYS favors the women in a domestic issue. Even when she is the shooter.
Warped DV enforcement

Denver, CO

#21 Jul 29, 2007
Domestic Violence laws are sensitive to the point that some say they are draconian. They are this way to prevent more serious actions from happening in the future -- like shootings. Unfortunately for men, law enforcement has a strong bias toward enforcing these DV laws against men; never mind women are equally violent. When women are violent toward men, its not taken seriously. So, now we have a woman who shot her husband. I bet there were signs leading to this, and I bet police were biased not to arrest her on DV in the past. Do more in the news to illustrate this warped aspect of our legal system, as well as its effects on peoples' lives.
