    Seriously ... why in the world are you defending this guy? He's been arrested multiple times for the same thing, violence. You don't have to condemn him yourself, but why take the time to try to convince others to be more open-minded and to give him the benefit of the doubt? I'm sure being open-minded and giving him the benefit of the doubt has allowed him to take advantage of the next person, and the next person and the next person.... He's 36 years old, not just out of high school. Start treating him like a man and hold him accountable.

    I don't believe that you and I read the same article. Nowhere in the story did it say that his fiance was the one to call the police and nowhere in the story did it say anything about him being violent. The only mention is of a "co-habitant protective order," which does not necessarily mean violence occurred in the past. Since the hearing never happened, and he was not arrested by Canadian authorities, maybe nothing actually happened. Or maybe it did, but it's pretty irresponsible to post speculation like your comment when you don't know the facts and neither does anyone else who was not there when the fight happened.

    I know of a few people that grew up with drug addicted family members, and that does not mean that they are prone to violence as you say. They were/are some of the nicest, most gentle people I know. Don't slander another person without the facts.

    None of us should always assume the worst about a person or situation just because there is a story in the media about it.

    Sounds as if SOMETHING meaningful happened. I don't think she would have called the police otherwise. Plus his past suggests he would indeed be prone to violence.

    Apparently she backed out, though, as abused women so often do. I hope one day she decides enough is enough, because abusive men very, VERY rarely ever rehabilitate themselves. They need help to do so, and in the meantime, the women (and children) in their lives need to be protected from them.

    I got in arguments with my fiance, I'm glad nobody ever called the police.
