One Comment on “Rep. Beth Turner

  1. Regarding recent violence in our local area the state of Arizona has a good approach any complaint from a woman of domestic assault the man automatically goes to jail for the night. This ends the immediate violence and gives those involved time to consider if their relationship is worthwhile. This also provides a record of histoty. Some will question why the innocent will sometimes be treated like a criminal. But I think most would agree to the inconvenience if it could prevent violence as bad or worse than what we have seen recently. Best regards jerry
