I'm a survivor of domestic violence and I have seen fellow survivors who have gone through this same kind of devastation! Someone needs to understand what we go through when in a dv relationship. I would take the abuse, without reciprocation, until he said I'm going to kill you! I fought, I didn't die, but it was a horrible ordeal! He made me want to kill him so the pain, embarrassment, abuse would stop! Being abused changes what a person would do to have a normal life!

I'm signing because Wendy does not deserve to be criminalized for protecting herself and her children. She is not a threat to society. Let her go home to her family and clear her name to keep her future privacy.

This woman has been failed by the very system that is in place to protect us.

I'm signing because this case was just brought to my attention and I am appalled at the justice system. I am disgusted with the prosecutor saying that there was no immediate threat or that Wendy exaggerated. Those in the justice system all across the country NEED to take domestic violence sensitivity training or any thing on domestic violence. Unless you've been in their shoes YOU HAVE NO IDEA what they are going through.

I'm signing because I believe that our criminal justice system is incredibly flawed and broken. The same system that would have failed to protect her had she merely tried to leave her abuser. She had no alternative to her action other than allow her abuse to continue or to be murdered by her abuser. The criminal justice system has only served to continue her abuse and suffering. The brutality was picked up by one (Legal system) when ended by the other (abusive animal/husband).
