(I don't know if this is the case everywhere, but I know it is in the UK/Ireland, and I think most other places I know of.)

Do you think the police should be able to charge domestic abusers without the victims pressing charges?

Why?

And, from the standpoint that they can't, where do you think the line is that crosses over from domestic abuse to assault?



A friend of mine got beaten up by his boyfriend last night. Which would normally apparently just fall under 'domestic' but because the guy bit a chunk of his lip/face off (WTF?) it comes under assault and he'll be charged regardless.
