Rehab is the answer
RE: “Call to end the violence,” (Mt Druitt-St Marys Standard, May 20).
I think it needs to stop being labelled “domestic” violence.
Violence is violence no matter where it comes from.
I seriously think that if there are enough reports made against one person, male or female, they should be put into a compulsory rehabilitation course. I’ve not seen much of this sort of thing, but having to bodily shield a slight woman barely older than myself while a raging lunatic screams at her and me, and trespasses on my property … that’s not something I should have to do.
I should be able to know that when I call the police I don’t have to think about arming myself to defend myself or others while I wait.
This is my home. I should feel safe. All of us should.
