Friday night and then pulled a gun, we are reminded of the danger of victims of
domestic abuse believing they can manage situations that regularly lead to ongoing
violence, abuse, and, too often, death.
According to the Nicole Brown Foundation, domestic violence affects more than 2
million Americans annually “when a family member, partner or ex-partner attempts
to physically or psychologically dominate another.”
Domestic violence can include physical abuse, sexual abuse, emotional abuse,
intimidation, economic deprivation, and threats of violence, all aimed at establishing
power and control over another person.
The Frankie Muniz, Elycia Turnbow Domestic Violence Phoenix Police Department
Report obtained and published by TMZ said Elycia Turnbow told officers Frankie
Muniz “punched her in the back of the head, and threw her into a wall while in the
The report says officers asked Muniz if he punched his girlfriend and quoted him as
replying: “No. I love her too much. She is the woman I want to marry.”
Because the police found no signs of injury, damage or independent witnesses,
and were unsuccessful in their attempts to have either Frankie Muniz or Elycia
Turnbow voluntarily leave the home, the police left the couple with a warning that
if police were again called to their address, “One or both of them will be charged
with disorderly conduct and booked into jail.”
One of the most common myths is that domestic violence is an anger control issue.
The Nicole Brown Foundation website includes a list of common myths and facts
about domestic violence, including:
FACT: Domestic violence has nothing to do with anger. Anger is a tool abusers use
to get what they want. We know abusers are actually very much in control
because they can stop when someone knocks on the door or the phone rings; they
often direct punches and kicks to parts of the body where the bruises are less likely
to show; they abuse everyone who makes them “angry,” but waits until there are
no witnesses and abuse the one they say they love.
While police may not be able to force victims to leave dangerous situations and
abusive relationships, it’s important that every person is aware of the signs and
dangers of domestic violence, common tactics of abusers, and the potential life and
death consequences of ignoring incidents of domestic violence.
