863 words - 3 pages

One of the most overlooked forms of violence in today’s society is domestic violence. Domestic violence is most likely to occur behind closed doors, which is one of the main reasons why domestic violence is not given that much attention. In most cases domestic violence is the silent, ugly side of dating and people do not like to talk about it. Due to the fact that domestic violence is becoming more common over the years warrants more and more research to help with the ongoing problem.
     Why do men in the United States resort to domestic violence? Domestic violence is an intense or furious often-destructive action or force within the household.

According to police and court records, Vincent White has had legal problems dating back to 2009. Vincent White’s father blamed what happened on his son’s drug habit, however he did not go into what type of drugs.

They were a mixed couple, which could also be the reason for some domestic troubles. The victim’s husband had some drug issues, however the article did not specify what type or types of drugs the murderer was into. Knowing that Vincent White was doing drugs is a solid strength, but since the article did not go into detail it could also be considered a weakness.
