Add Alabama State Senator Tom Whatley to the list of “family values” Republicans arrested and charged with domestic violence. Officers of the Auburn Police Department arrested the Senator on Tuesday night after officers responding to another call in the neighborhood heard what Whatley describes as “a discussion” with his fiance, Lindsay Waits, coming from the rear…

    Ok, so they were on the back porch, having a “discussion” like anyone else, and some elephant-eared po-lice (obviously libruls) down the street somehow overheard the “discussion” and decided to be mean to a Republican just having a little chat with his “fiance” about some meaningless something-or-other.
    Is that about it?

      Well yes, you know how law enforcement abuses white men.

        Yes, and there are so many white man’s groups to prove it.

    Republicans are violent psychopaths. They beat their wives. They gleefully, rabidly support torture, and derive a quasi-sexual pleasure just thinking about it. They have sadistic economic policies designed to enrich billionaires while making the poor and middle class suffer. They would rather protect gun ownership than protect little children’s lives.

    It’s not an ideology, it’s a sociopathic mentality.

      There are plenty of everybody’s that beat their partners. What’s even sadder is that people often feel it’s OK that children can listen, or witness but as long as they’re not touched they’re not harmed. Which is bullshit. With the mostly male government we have domestic violence will never be taken seriously so it is up to us to have honest discussions, we should be talking about this in schools and in doing so make sure we’re prepared to make them a safe place for naps, follow ups, what ever that child needs. When they go home that’s when their work begins.

    Perhaps he is just loudly and forcefully compassionate?

    Dang homeless guy’s fault.

    LOL. Now I’ve heard everything. Cops always stop by to break up warm and loving couples, right?

    What a winner

    “a discussion” is what it’s called now? alrighty.

  8. annaaurora December 16th, 2014 at 4:52 pm

    I am of the opinion anymore that if a call is made that someone should be led out of the house. This comes from experience as a child calling the cops. It is especially prudent now with guns so available. If a child is in the house they need a breath. Trust me on this even if they’re not getting beat.

    What the good state Senator and his fiance fail to mention is that, according to local news sources, the officer witnessed Whatley knock his fiance down.
