Our thanks to Steve for this. As we and others predicted, the judge used a series of ‘mitigating circumstances’ to justify not sending the violent woman to prison. You’ll never hear most of them used as mitigating circumstances for violent men. One is alcohol addiction. Men’s intoxication is routinely used as an aggravating circumstance when sentencing, not a mitigating circumstance. I’m reminded yet again of Alison Tieman’s short video, Men’s Rights versus Feminism explained using magnets.
