Killing Tied to VH1 Show Raises New Concerts About Reality TV -

Well it looks like the tentacles of partner violence have now reached out to the world of Reality TV.
It really shouldnt surprise us, violence against women has long been rampant within both the Hollywood film industry as well as the music industry and the violence would seem to be mirroring 'regular" society in an upward growth surge as of late. Experts blame the poor economy as the probable catalyst but I'm not convinced especially when one considers that folks in the entertainment industry are less likely to feel the pinch of an economic crunch.

What is shocking is the level of brutality involved with this particular crime. This victim was literally beaten to death and then dismembered in an attempt to hide her identity-rather idiotic considering this is the age of DNA after all.
What wasnt a surprise was the fact that man suspected of killing her had a history of committing Domestic violence and a history of getting off for said crimes with a veritable slap on the wrist.
How many women have to die before our courts get it right and change their attitude towards the precursor crimes to murders like these?!
