The police reckon they are cracking down on domestic violence and not tolerating it, but I feel like the sentencing for this act is still too soft. With this kind of leniency, leads people to feel like they can get away with all sorts. The fact is, the legal system here in the UK is just too soft. The UK need to take a leaf out of some other countries' books, where sentencing is far harsher and longer.
In regards to domestic violence, it's a shame that people feel like they can trust someone who then violates their trust by abusing them. Be it a man or a woman, its always wrong. If you feel the need to get physical with someone it's often THE sign that the situation is not working out. Unfortunately people find themselves trapped and scared to leave.
