A few days ago the city of Topeka, Kansas voted to decriminalize misdemeanor domestic violence. The reason for this decision was budget cuts. The Topeka city council stated that it simply did not have the funds to prosecute the offenders.
I suppose the reasoning behind the decision is sort of understandable.... or at least it's better than "Them fillies usually have it comin' to 'em anyways".... nevertheless it is disturbing to see the safety of the citizens of Topeka being placed second to political grandstanding during budget negotiations.
