    Where in the heck is the SPOUSAL ABUSE REGISTRY at ???? Many of these who kill their spuses have spousal abuse backgrounds and still no registry for them?? WHY ?? It would be nice to be able to go on net when you met a person and see if they have abused othe spouses in the past before you hook up with them as afterwards is too late. We have in this state a Multi-Million dollar a year sex offender registry that studies shows that they offend less tha other offenders and they have a registry , so why not spousal abusers too ??? Protect our WOMEN & MEN from these fools who love to beat their spuses and let the WORLD know who they are on a registry.

    certainly like your web site however you have to check the spelling on quite a few of your posts. A number of them are rife with spelling problems and I find it very bothersome to tell the truth on the other hand I’ll surely come again again.
