Domestic violence claiming too many lives

Dear Editor,

A famous preacher once said that man needs faith just like how he needs food and shelter. Likewise, the hooligans who are brutally murdering their wives and spouses in domestic disputes need self-control, just like how they need food, raiment and shelter.

When these monsters become filled with rage and anger, they are like raging bulls, or hungry crocodiles; they attack. When these buggers turn green with rage, they are uncontrollable.

It is unbelievable to see these very sad and sorry sights of so many women being brutally slaughtered in domestic violence. And what is more heart-rending is that many of these women are being butchered in front of their children.

When these hot-blooded bastards decide to commit suicide, why do they have to take their partners with them? They should die alone if they choose to end it all.

Too many women are dying brutal and untimely deaths in domestic disputes in Jamaica. Death and mayhem have taken over Jamaica. What a calamity, my God!

The number of women being slaughtered by the knife, the cutlass, and the gun in domestic violence is more than tongue can tell.

Donald J McKoy
