Domestic violence

So just how bad is the problem of domestic violence?

The answer is very bad.

Last week a young Memphis woman was shot a killed.

Police say the shooter was an ex-boyfriend.

A recent survey found that nearly one-third of American women report being abused by their husband or boyfriend at some point in their lives.

And a study released just last month ranked Tennessee fourth in the nation for the number of women killed each year by men.
