Charlie Sheen and Domestic Violence Another Star Falls

Charlie Sheen arrested for domestic violence? The BBC reports that he spent much of Christmas Day cooling his heels in a jail cell. Is this any way for a grown man with two twin boys to behave? It will be nice if this is all a misunderstanding and he's not guilty of domestic violence. (After all, he is innocent until and unless a court of law finds him guilty.)

No one deserves to be a victim but it's something that we read in the headlines almost everyday. The fact remains that many stars are falling because of a pattern of learned bad behavior.

Whatever ugly name you call it (domestic violence, intimate partner violence, family violence or domestic abuse)  the idolization of stars who perpetrate these acts have got to stop. It's not a crime of passion. It's not love. It's not a joke. Domestic violence maims, kills and causes other types of injuries. It is certainly not the type of Christmas present that anyone wants to give or receive.

If you are a victim in need of help call the National Domestic Violence Hotline at 1.800.799.SAFE (7233) 1.800.787.3224 (TTY).
