    would consider a "treated and released" from the hospital beating as a mere love tap. It's sad that family members defending against an abuser then have to face the full wrath of the law. It's unending hell.

      Without actually seeing a medical report I can't comment as to the actual severity, but that Texas police or EMTs got her into treatment suggests it wasn't just a bloodied nose and black eye.
      I'm hoping they charged him purely due to requirements and common sense (in arresting him they also removed him from potential backlash temporarily), rather than any belief it was other than self defence.

      I wish I had stocks in aluminium these days. All that foil would be a great investment opportunity.
