Destroy The Joint Misinformation

It only takes scrutinising these stories to identify that those marked in red are not able to be attributed to domestic violence. Many of them are “unknown” to the victim. In some cases they are “known to the victim”, but a drug lord usually knows his pawns and dealers so this statement in no way confirms a domestic or intimate relationship.

Two of these cases are also murder suicides. These always seem to be attributed to male violence and yet usually no one knows is this is a pact between the couple to voluntarily end their lives.

Responsible journalism would and should wait for investigations and statistics before they repeated these claims.

This list is taken directly from Destroy The Joint  They ask for credit for their “heartbreaking work”, so I will happily attribute this to them with justified scrutiny!
