I have never hit a woman in my life and would never consider it, but I had an ex come to my house with the cops to collect her things stating she feared for her safety, not knowing what I might do. I think back on it, if I had even raised my voice to her she probably would have had me arrested and I would have a charge on my record for doing nothing. I was stunned. Women suck, and the legal system sucks more for automatically siding with them. Not saying this guy's a prince, and for all I know he's guilty as hell, but it's likely we'll never know his side of the story.
This is definitely true. If police are ever called into a domestic dispute, no matter how tame it is, they usually take the woman's side.
I was at a friend's house in high school and his parents weren't on the best terms. We heard them arguing through most of the evening and eventually heard a crash and loud screaming. So we go upstairs to find that his dad, in his frustration, pushed over something that knocked the lamp onto the floor. His mom then called the police because she wanted him out of the house. Police came, asked questions of everyone. Even though they found that my friend's mom wasn't in much danger, they told his dad that he had to spend the night someplace else, and if he came home and the mom called again, they'd arrest him. So he left and slept at a motel.
Even worse, now that the police had been called, my friend's dad had a strike against him. Any future calls from the mom, and dad goes straight to jail. Pretty messed up. They eventually divorced a couple months later and my friend hasn't been to see his mom since.
