    i see where tlwilliams1237 is coming from and may be a correct insight. and Dan Cooper she will be charged with that until court and she is proven inncoent if he called the police on her.. Yes women can be domestic abusers but i dont think this is the case!

    But women are supposed to smile all the time, no matter what!

    I get it, she is smiling because she is thinking that, "If I smile, they will know that I am a nice innocent girl that wouldn't even hurt a fly and they will have to let me go".

    Keep on hallucinating woman....

    I am sure that Tracey Cline of Durham would find the male she stabbed guilty of something...

    Nothing like a good stabbing with a smile to start off a Monday.

    It's a remorse smile! Who doesn't feel like a good stabbing from time to time. tlw what are you talking about??????

    Domestic abuse always comes to serious harm to one or sometimes both people. Very bad situation either way.

  • Dan Cooper Mar 5, 2012

    tlwilliams1237, your logic is seriously flawed. If she were defending herself, she wouldn't have been charged with assault with a deadly weapon and intent to kill inflicting serious injury. You know women can be domestic abusers too, right?

    hahaha she sure looks happy about something.
