We have to have harsher laws and penalties for domestic violence. Obviously, probation, short incarceration and orders of protection do not do it. RIP Iris.

This was a crazy husband that didn’t want to get a divorce and was a stalker. Sadly there are crazy douche bag men in all races in society dumbass. Don’t believe me watch Live PD dudes be beating , stabbing and shooting their wives/GF all the time. There is a mental health issue in America we need to address . Oh but we can’t pay for it .

Minorities only

I don’t know about gentrification… I’ll pass on white people mass shootings.
