Massachusetts has figured out how to stop intimate partner homicide.

I have not been able to bring myself to post since this weekend’s awful verdict, and the retroactive attention it has brought Marissa Alexander (a Florida woman who was denied Stand Your Ground protection after firing a gun into the ceiling to scare off her abusive husband against whom she had a restraining order – she was given 20 years in prison. Google her name for more info.)

But friend & reader Reuven sent me something that has lifted me out of my slump.

Get this – Massachusetts is protecting women from intimate partner homicide by a) taking what they know about men who kill their partners, and b) monitoring and restricting the activity of men who match that criteria.

IMAGINE!
