Tonight we had a Domestic Assault arrest.
He had punched her repeatedly in the face and then choked her. We were called because a neighbour heard her begging him to stop. Her screams got quieter as she got closer to passing-out.
When we arrested him, he kept asking if she would be okay. I said: "I think she'll be fine if she never sees you again".
Upon reviewing his record, it came to light that this was the fifth time he had been arrested for assaulting her.
She declined to provide a formal statement each time, including tonight. Each time the charges were dropped. Each time she went back to him 'cause he said "sorry".
Maybe he'll kill her next time.
We can solve the crime. Not the life.
