Kansas Might Decriminalize Domestic Abuse to Save Money

This country doesn't work anymore.

I heard about this.

Apparently, Topeka, Kansas, wants to decriminalize domestic abuse to save money.

This is... yeah. I recently moved to New Mexico from Kansas City, MO, and lived literally four blocks from Kansas. My friends are family attorneys and guardian ad litem (sp?) for children. The amount of abuse that goes on in that state is fucking staggering.

Kansas is a shithole. A complete shithole. If you ever get the chance, avoid driving across it while listening to the radio, and avoid looking at the anti-abortion signs every single damned mile. Nevermind the fact that there are literally only TWO abortion providers in the state (publicly. Considering that we're dealing with the state which recently played host to the assassination of George Tiller, the late abortion provider, I'm willing to bet that anyone that provides abortions does it in absolute secrecy), they act like it's this unbelievable juggernaut in their state.

And their radio basically demonizes anything that is not conservative to the point at which I can see why Kansans fear anything that isn't conservatism with all of their lives. It's like a giant boogeyman echo chamber there.

Christ, I hate Kansas.
