Stop The Domestic Violence: Man Sentenced To 5 Years In The Clink For Doing What To His Girl??

- By Bossip Staff

Just what is goin’ on in the world? SMH. This young lady was trying to exit this violent relationship before it got any worse and this guy went into a rage.

A Platte City man was sentenced to five years in prison after he inflicted serious injuries on his girlfriend by burning her with a hair iron.

Russell J. Duncan, 23, was sentenced Thursday in Platte County Circuit Court after pleading guilty to first degree domestic assault.

“The victim in this case made the decision to get out of a bad relationship with the defendant,” said Platte County Prosecuting Attorney Eric Zahnd. “Rather than let her go, he took a hair straightening iron and clamped it on this young lady’s leg.”

Duncan admitted he argued with his girlfriend over her plan to move out of his house, Zahnd said. The argument escalated, and he pushed her into a closet and choked her.

The assault left the young woman with second- and third-degree burns.

Duncan will be required to serve at least 85 percent of his five year sentence before he is eligible for parole.

More and more these days, it seems people are losing the ability to rationalize and use violence as a means to communicate. We’re starting to wonder if anger management should be mandatory.

    If they can teach s## education in school then yes, this should be part of that particular cl.a.s.s and they should make it madatory, but some form of anger management should be taught in every grade level(before the s## education cl.a.s.s which is usually offered in high school) little by little until they get a full course, if it is taught as children grow then it will cover anger management on all age levels. I SAY LETS PUT THAT IN FRONT OF CONGRESS AND SEE WHAT HAPPENS. A lot of people that are made to go to these cla.s.s.e.s madatory have to do so because of something they have done in a relationship so when you start to teach people about s#x then why not teach them how to resolve issues as people period so when they face these situations they can recognize the problem arising and know how to handle the situation.
