For Thee but not for ME! Irony strikes again....

Via Insty, there is an article detailing the arrest of a 45 year old woman for the murder of her 26 year old husband, with whom she had been in holy wedlock for a total of five days.  The irony comes in when the reader finds out that she's employed by a quasi-legitimate organization that is lobbying for the creation of a database of those who have been convicted of sexual or domestic abuse.  But of course women can't be guilty of domestic abuse or violence--it's all of those evil males. 

I wonder about how many women are convicted of domestic abuse, how many are let off with a slap on the wrist, how many are convicted for other crimes when it's really domestic abuse, how many claim self-defense when they are most likely the aggressor?
