    And he ran to his mama. I bet she bitch-slapped him so hard and dialed the cops right away.

    So wait, he abused his wife and she destroyed his shit in reprocussion for the abuse? The article won't load for me, so I can't get the proper details.

    Yeah......tell me about it.....:redface2: 

    They're just fucking toys. He could have given thought to suing her and getting money for them....or something. But this....well....hope he learns to like cock-meat sandwiches. I have a feeling that's about all he's going to be eating for at least the next 12 years.

    Spousal abuse is no joke. A lot of times it is little things that set off the victim of the spousal abuse. Its not like he killed her just because of that.

    No, the wife was abusing him.

    Not to call you out on it (heck I had the same thought before reading the article), but it's kind of a shame we automatically fault the man when we hear "spousal abuse."

    While I know it goes either way, plain and simple, I hear it more that the man is at fault. Again, the title just doesn't explain it right, and I can't even access the article.

    Either way, that is fucked up, but to go and kill her, that is just not the way to go. File a lawsuit and divorce her, but don't go and kill someone.

    Agreed. Whenever I hear someone talking about how we need to stop "Violence against Women," I always ask what they've done to stop "Violence against Men."

    I don't object to what they're trying to do and I think it's smart they've tried to limit their focus to a smaller problem than "Violence against Everyone," but their reactions are typically funny because it catches them off guard.

    Remember kids: Spousal abuse is only funny when it's on man who collects toys.

    It's not that easy. If he was TRULY being abused he may have case for manslaughter as he could be a victiem of Domestic Violence. In any case, it is sad that the first reaction to a case like this is that the man is the one to blame.

    Shame he got a life sentence, although he will be eligible for parole in 12 years... That's something.

    Surprised he didn't throw her down a well instead, in emulation of the Sarlacc. I'd have voted to acquit.

    That's because it's easier to see the physical abuse dished out by a man than the emotional abuse inflicted by a woman.

    I also wonder how many of the people advising a lawsuit have ever tried to actually collect a judgement from someone, let alone for something as easily ridiculed as a ruined doll collection.

    I kind of feel sorry for him, but I kind of hate him aswell. Don't think he's giving collectors a bad 'rap', he's one guy who got abused by his wife and she destroyed what he loves, doesn't make him insane.

    Yeah, I think they're massively playing up the actual role the collection-destroying had in all of this. I hope that's not what made the jury convict him.

    He called the domestic violence hotline in 2010 that day she destroyed his stuff. She also hit him with a pool cue. The article does not say how much longer after that he killed her.

    Also, it could very well have been the straw that broke the camel's back. If that had been the first horrible thing she had done to him, perhaps he would have forgiven her.

    Apparently she was constantly abusing him and threatening to leave and go back to Thailand

    I hate the sensationalism they're putting in the article headlines.
