Never Return to an Abusive Partner

In an abusive relationship the woman often have no choice but to leave her abusive partner.  While you may feel relieved and happy to be out of the unhappy relationship, do not become complacent.  You need to be vigilant.  It is often after the woman leaves that she becomes more at risk for losing her life.

In most abusive relationship the main aim of the man is to control the woman.  When the woman leaves he no longer has that control and he may go to the extreme to make sure that the woman does not have a life without him.  When you leave an abusive partner always bear in mind the fact that your life could possible be in danger and take the necessary precautions to ensure your safety.

If children are involved you may have no choice but to remain in touch with him for the sake of the children.  It is best however not to meet with him alone or if you have to make sure you do so in an environment where people are around.  Never meet with him in a deserted or secluded area.

Just recently on August 14 in my home town Port Antonio, Jamaica  twenty-two year old woman, Jessica King, lost her life to domestic violence.  The man who took her life was a twenty-three year old police officer.  This was someone who took an oath of office to serve and protect citizens.  Instead of protecting he turned his weapon on a defenseless, unharmed woman and snuffed out her life.

It is reported that the two were having problems in their relationship and the young woman had moved out of the home they shared and was staying elsewhere.  According to a relative on the day of her death she received a phone call that morning from her estranged boyfriend requesting her to see him.  She apparently went to the Errol Flynn Marine to meet him not knowing she was walking to her death.

An eyewitness said the police man first hugged her and then proceeded to pump four bullets into her.  She died on the spot.  He then turned the gun on himself, shooting himself three times in a suicide attempt.   Since the incident he has been released from hospital and will stand trial for murder.  Relatives of  Jessica said was killed because she wanted to end the relationship with the police officer.

    I hit “Like” because even though this information is so difficult to read, it needs to be read. Read by every woman in an abusive relationship and not in one. Women need to be educated about just what an abusive relationship is all about and just what the risks are. There’s NOTHING to like about this post except that you shared it and thats just plain ol’ important.
    I hope many women read this and take it to heart. What happened to Jessica King, unfortunately is not a one off… This sort of thing is happening everyday.

      Thank you for visiting my blog and taking the time to comment. You are quite correct it happens everyday. I think part of the reason is although the man is abusive the woman usually do not believe he will go to the extreme where he will kill her and then it happens and it is too late.

    I’ve been writing about domestic violence in my Friday posts for several weeks now. This tragic story is a prime example of how dangerous abusers are. Hard to read, but thanks for sharing this with us.
