Default Strangling/Choking

I often see posts mentioning being strangled or choked by an abuser. I saw this article and thought to share it since it makes such a strong point.


"They say there's a correlation between men who strangle women and men who commit "other horrifically violent acts.""This is not a domestic violence problem. This is not an intimate partner behind closed doors problem," said Sgt Craig Varnum. "This is a public health crisis. These folks are ticking time bombs in our community.""

Yeah, the judicial system is starting to catch on to that, too. Strangling is one of those indicators that murder might well follow. People who don't worry about it are missing a survival clue - if someone does that to you, you are highly likely to be dead some time later....and so may other people.
You'll know you've created God in your own image when He hates all the people you do.
