  1. Some guys just don’t understand it’s over no mas, me done
    because they are of the opinion that they own the woman.

    Some men who behaves like ‘…Battering Rams,’ shall themselves be battered.

    There is ‘…No Greater Love’ than a sibling risking his life to protect another sibling.

    Watch it ‘…Duncy Boy.’ In the heat of battle, you have to be bright.

    You may repel an attack with a counter-attack. Not retaliatory though.

    Do not use’… more force than is reasonably necessary.’

    Even so, in the heat of the excitement, no time to measure what you are getting or giving.

    Two things though, you will feel what you are getting and you should know what you are giving.

    If you are still standing and got a chance, you may break a hand or a foot, if your life is dependent upon such course of action.

  3. Based on other news outlet, the assailant was warn on number of occasions by his family members, the victim, his sister, who is also a victim and policy auth. There is talk of a restrain order, thou not yet confirmed.
    Now had Mr Faracho, done what WE all wish would have happen, wouldn’t this be a dam good case for self defense?? I for sure would be saying “one less dog off the face of the earth”. Yes I said what i said, with no apologizes!!
    But instead I will sit here and hope that this low life does not make another attempt on this lady’s life. I will sit and wait to see the chargES if any is brought against this low life. I will sit and hope the next time some one comes to this lady’s defense it ends ………………………………………………..differently!
