Derek Medina Kills Wife & Posts to FaceBook

Derek Medina. Has anyone heard of this psycho lately?

Personally, I think he looks crazy.

 Reader's Digest version: This guy and his wife get into a normal couple's quarrel and it gets heated. She apparently gets fed up with his shit and when he confronts her about leaving, she grabs and knife and he grabs a gun. He is able to disarm her. Let me repeat that.... he disarms her. She "punches" him and he shoots her six to eight times.

Are you joking?

I do not agree with domestic violence whatsoever, but she punched him and he felt it necessary to shoot her. Makes perfect sense.  He is probably one of those psychotic, controlling freaks that thinks, "If I can't have you, no one will" when she attempted to leave him.

What really gets me is he posted a confession and a picture of her dead body on FaceBook.

"Im going to prison or death sentence for killing my wife love you guys miss you guys takecare Facebook people you will see me in the news my wife was punching me and I am not going to stand anymore with the abuse so I did what I did I hope u understand me"

I don't believe she abused him. I don't believe she screwed with his head and beat him up on a constant basis. I think he played this, "I am man. Hear me roar." I also don't believe he was powerless against her and felt his life threatened so much he needed to protect himself by killing her. I think he could have walked away or shut the door to the bathroom giving time for both to calm down. Or just let her leave.

But, just for a moment, let's play Devil's Advocate.

If roles were reversed, would we be screaming crazy person at her? Would we understand why she did it? Would we stand behind her even though she could have walked away? Of course we would. Why, you ask? Because she is a woman and naturally we are weak compared to a man in strength. Look at Mary Winkler. She killed a freaking preacher. And because he supposedly make her prance around like a stripper in their bedroom and he was abusive, she walked away serving 7 months in a Psych Ward. Barbara Sheehan shot her husband 11 times and was acquitted of murder because she claimed abuse.

We stand behind a murderer when abused and when it's a woman. Or so it seems.

I'm sure there has been a few times I have pissed the hubby off so much, he wanted to just strangle me. And I know there have been several times, I wish I could punch him in his face. But, we don't. If any argument ever gets heated, we walk away. We chill out, calm down and talk about it later. Nothing is so serious to hurt anyone.

I think he could have played the whole abuse card if he hadn't posted it all over FaceBook. I know he lost me at that point and pretty sure a lot of others. Also, if he was so abused why wouldn't he just let her leave when she declared she was finished?

All in all, any sort of abuse from anyone should never be tolerated. If you or someone you know is dealing with abuse, you should contact 1-800-799-SAFE. These people will help you get out and help you start over with your life. Abuse is real.

Nonetheless, it's terrible this woman lost her life and this man took it. No matter what the situation, two people lost their lives on that terrible day.
