Family violence spills outside with Jay Z incident

Question of the day

Family violence is in the news. Solange Knowles was caught on camera assaulting Jay Z in an elevator. Baltimore Ravens player Ray Rice knocked out his long-time girlfriend, dragged her off an elevator, and married her a short time later. What do you have to say about the domestic violence that’s spilling outside the home? Is violence in families the new normal, or is it finally time to confront domestic violence?

Sadly, there has always been violence in and outside of families. However, the advent of Social Media makes it alot more visible.

Social media makes everything more visible, and that’s not necessarily a good thing. The question for me is whether that visibility makes things better by forcing us to confront it, or makes things worse by making every negative behavior seem normal.
