Construction worker spared jail time for harming ex-wife

A forty-seven year old construction worker was spared jail time today for harming his ex common-law-wife. Darrington Williams was arraigned in court this morning for injuring Shawn Armstrong on Saturday at her house in the Saint Martin de Porres area. Armstrong claimed that Williams was embroiled in an argument with her and that he hit her repeatedly causing injuries to her lips and face. In his defence, Williams told the court that the police also beat him, but he accepted responsibility for the harm caused to his ex. He told the court that when he approached Armstrong last Saturday, she was with another man and that provoked his anger.  Williams asked the court for leniency and Magistrate Dale Cayetano imposed a non-custodial sentence and fined him one thousand dollars to be paid by November thirtieth or in default he will serve one year imprisonment.

    clearly she was at fault.

    why was she at her home? She should not be there. She is a women, bible says women are property. Just like a dog, she should be beaten regularly, so they know who is lord and master in her house.

    Girls, this guy is a real man who deserves better property. When he is not beating women he is out beating homos, cats and dogs for his virility. He is a real catch. since he is out of jail and got a small fine, and the ex gets no restitution for her pain and suffering, he has $$$ money for bootycalls. call him now!!! He has your leash. how about that new boyfriend, protecting his new property.

    In what world are we living? Don’t you have mothers, sisters, and aunts..you would not like them to be treated in that manner regardless of what they did or who they are. Be a man and walk away, not an animal. We are made humans to be distinct from animals!!!
