But lets look at it from a different perspective. He NEVER laid his hands on her. Yes, he "raged", he broke a lot of HIS stuff (personally, though, cabinets that could be "smashed to pieces" with bare hands, really ain't that high of quality. I mean I could beat the SH!T out of my dresser, and yes, my hands would bleed, and I MIGHT scratch it, but NO WAY it is being smashed to pieces. Of course, he could have THROWN them and broken them, but THAT wouldn't lead to bleeding hands.), and he "pushed" her with his body, but he never "abused" her. And since it happened REPEATEDLY in the past, and she never called the sops, she set her self up by showing him that this behavior was acceptable to her.
And regardless of whether or not pushing someone with your body constitutes "abuse" or not, it still does not earn you $50K.
Why give a "senior" discount, they have had plenty of time to raise the money...
