Domestic Violence in South Carolina

At a rural convenience store Wednesday night, a Jonesville man shot a woman four times, pointed a gun at a child related to her and fired into the store's beer cooler when a customer ran for cover inside.

Wednesday night's shooting was the second related to domestic violence in Union County this week. A Jonesville man shot his wife in the head before killing himself on Monday.

“Domestic situations get more officers hurt than anything else we have to deal with,” Taylor said. “There's no break from domestic calls.”
I'm sure the cops are right about domestic violence calls being the most dangerous for them, but I couldn't help but think they're much worse for the women.

What do you think? Please leave a comment.

  1. Domestic Violence is a difficult thing for officers to deal with. The offender and the victim live at the same place so they can't do much to protect without a mountain of paperwork...

    but they can't really claim to get as hurt as those involved!
