I was just watching Cops, and a woman called the police because her boyfriend or husband was hitting her. The police arrested him for the assault, but they also ran her info and arrested her for outstanding warrants in another county. Do you think she should have been able to receive protection from the law without reprisal for her other actions or not? On one hand, she needs to be held accountable for her actions, but on the other hand, if she was afraid of being arrested she may not have called and the guy would have gotten away with beating her for a long time. I am of both minds about this, but I think that she should be afforded the protection and since she called, they should at least give her a chance to go in within 24 hrs to take care of it on her own.
