    I would, but seeing as how that'd be a long distance phone call for me, and I don't even know the number, it'd be pretty futile.




The number is floating around here in this thread or on the boards. If I find it, I'll throw it in this post.


EDIT: Found it. 210-223-4742. Any takers?

Unless Debra presses charges, Austin is not "wanted" or a "fugitive."

Here's how usually it works in a domestic violence situation (and please take my word for this, I would prefer not to have to give credentials on how I know all of this): when domestic violence occurs, the police are supposed to take the offender into custody and hold (usually) him overnight. In that overnight period, the victim has the opportunity to press charges. If the victim chooses not to, the offender is released and simply TOLD not to do it again.

In a case like what happened this past weekend, all the authorites are allowed to do is tend to the victim, take a report and briefly go look at one or two places where the victim thinks the offender MIGHT be. If their search is unsuccessful, they check back with the victim to see if (usually) she wishes to press charges. If the victim chooses not to press charges, that's the end of it. Seriously.

I'm not saying I agree with it, I'm just saying that's how the system works in most areas. Some states (and cities) have a zero tolerance policy, where the victim has ZERO say in the "pressing charges" area and the state (or city) brings charges against the offender.

Considering who used to be the Governor of Texas, I dobut the state has such a policy in place.

    Of course...all of this post could be irrelevant by the morning, when its in my newspaper or something.

Papercuts! is always so much smarter than everyone else.

Considering who used to be the governor? What was the point of putting that comment at the end? It doesn't even make any sense.

Man, remember back when Austin was a heel and yelled at Debra for making nasty tasting cookies all the time? And he pretty much treated her like crap, and Jim Ross made a big deal out of how horrible a husband he was?

Let's all give Papercuts a round of applause for finding some way to DRAG A TOTALLY FUCKING UNRELATED PERSON'S NAME THROUGH THE MUD!

Yeah, I'm a Bush supporter, but even if I wasn't, using this thread to make a fucking political statement is so fucking low that I can't even believe I fucking read that or that someone is so fucking thoughtless as to write it!

Maybe it just comes from being Canadian and therefore not having an opinion on GW Bush that matters to anyone, but I have a hard time believing that the following quote is offensive...

Papercuts! said:

    Some states (and cities) have a zero tolerance policy, where the victim has ZERO say in the "pressing charges" area and the state (or city) brings charges against the offender.

    Considering who used to be the Governor of Texas, I doubt the state has such a policy in place.


To me this says, some states choose to prosecute on behalf of the victim regardless of the victim's willingness to press charges.

It doesn't take a genius to figure out that those states probably have Democrats sitting as governors. Just about everybody in the free world knows that GW is a) a conservative, and b) former governor of Texas. So Papercuts! makes a veiled reference to those two facts. What's the big hairy deal?

Papercuts! passed no judgement on the policy. He passed no judgement on Texas, nor did he pass judgement on GW Bush. He simply said in not so many words that, ``Texas, given that George W. Bush was governor, and given that George W Bush was a conservative governor, probably doesn't have such a policy towards spousal assault.''

That's all. I don't see a political statement there, nor do I see anyone's name mentioned, let alone being dragged through the mud.

Sorry, but with all the opinions flying back and forth, all of which really were quite logic based on all ends, someone had to weigh in with something of an "I told you so", so dammit, it's gonna be me! :)

In TN she wouldn't have a choice on pressing charges. The state will prosecute on domestic charges. But, intrestingly enough police here can only arrest on misdemeanors they actually witness, so by bailing before the police arrived he wouldn't get arrested here. There is an exception for DV arrests, but unless the victim wants to prosecute (and the police try hard to convince the victim to prosecute) there aren't going to be cars prowling the area for the guy. Pretty much if the ahole is gone when the police get there then he walks unless she gets a warrant. It sounds cold, but thats the way it is. Of all the DV cases I know of, only know of 3 that actually went to court and conviction. 1 of those the victim tried not to prosecute. The photos of her bleeding from the face were pretty convincing though. It wouldn't take a rocket scientist to figure out how I know this
The wife beating is definately a shoot. The Austin getting canned may have been a work at first, but I bet we don't see him for a LONG time, if ever. Sounds like the man has some serious problems.

No doubt its all W's fault. Triple H is also involved, probably spiking Austin's Lite beer with LSD to make him crazy in an effort to keep Jericho on the undercard. The truth is out there.

Yeah in Texas, the woman would have to WANT to press charges. But there is definately a bigger angle here.

First off, I don't condone what Austin did, but women do make you do crazy things. And like it has been stated before, Debra should've called the cops way before this. I don't think she said "it's happened but it's never been this bad". She said that it has happened.

Is it possible that she had called the cops before but it was kept quiet? This is not the 1st case of a popular wrestler being abusive. Probably one of the most shocking. And when you like at the size difference. It's really sickening.

Adding to the fact that it's coming out now, makes it worse. She shouldn't have waited until he lost his "celebrity status". It kinda sounds like a dis, but that doesn't give him a right to do what he did.

I wouldn't be surprised if Vince/WWE knew about this problem all along...waiting to put the screws to him. This is nothing new to him. SCSA is gone, there can be no comeback now. No one will forgive him. A damn shame really.

I'm still not above thinking that this could be an elaborate work. The pieces just fit together too neatly for me.

Three weeks ago, Raven sows the seeds that Austin is discontent. Then Austin appears on Byte This! and vents about the poor quality of the WWE product. Then, in the course of a week, Austin "melts down" in a major way - no-showing RAW, removed from the WWE active roster, beating his wife, and then disappearing without a trace. WWE then broadcasts "Confidential", in which Austin's friend and former boss rag on Austin extensively - a theme that repeated itself on RAW.

Considering that nobody mentioned Austin being discontent prior to Raven's soliloquy three weeks ago, that's rather quick for a full-scale self-destruction.

Bruises don't appear immediately - not to make excuses for Austin, but has Debra possibly been training for an in-ring appearance (which would also cause bruising and could, conceivably, explain the eye)? I know, Debra has no in-ring experience - but that's not stopped people before.

And nobody's seen Austin yet? With his reputation and visibility, Austin anywhere public is like driving a Maserati down Main Street in Edgerton - just being there would draw a crowd.

Though I can believe that this is all real, I'm just going to wait and see how the next two weeks play out.

Steph
