Abused Women and Girls ARE the Canary in the Coalmine

This is Katherine Fugate’s story as the stepdaughter of the mass shooter in TX. We all know the one, the guy that shot up the church and killed 26 people, most of them women and children. 

The link is here:


Where she talks about what life was like growing up with a violent male, torturing her, her mother and her 2 sisters. It is worth the read, even if it is just to know her story. 
But I am pasting a part of it below, because it is just so important. I mean, we all know how much males love violence and they absolutely do not want to stop it. They love to terrorize us, while looking confused about how to stop. They really don’t want to rape/beat/threaten/intimidate/harass/bully us!!!! They just don’t know how to be decent, civil and kind.

If you don’t have time to read her story, here is the most important part………..

“Domestic violence no longer lives inside that one house on the block. Domestic violence lives in the public now.

According to Everytown for Gun Safety, the majority of all mass shooters in the United States killed an intimate partner or family member during the massacre or had a history of domestic violence.

Somebody out there, right now, knows the next big mass shooter. Somebody out there is getting blamed, screamed at, beaten up.

Somebody out there wants to believe that he’s sorry, that he’s changed and that love means giving him a second chance. Even if that second chance means giving him another bullet because he missed the first time.

Somebody out there, right now, needs our help.

Once, you could feel sorry for the three little girls from the violent home forging a check at the grocery store. Once, you could smile softly, avert your eyes and do nothing. Not anymore.

The facts show that domestic violence is a very clear warning sign that people outside of the family might also be hurt in the future.

Violent men don’t just drop out of the sky with guns and start shooting up people in public places. There are warning signs.

Abused women and children are the canary in the coal mine.

It starts somewhere. It starts in the home.”

The emphasis is mine.

Thanks for reading,


One thought on “Abused Women and Girls ARE the Canary in the Coalmine

  1. I tend to fear other people getting angry at me, so I’m always saying yes to everything and I’m the guy whose leg always gets pulled. But this is not so bad and anyway it’s a problem of myself alone. But with women, compliance seems to be instilled on them as a part of their education. I thought of that when reading the part in which the mother pays the stepfather’s bail (with whose money? She got together with him out of economic necessity but they are always using her money…) and ‘gives him another chance.’ How often this happens and results in death later.

    Changing subject, on Sunday I’ll get the facts in order regarding the Sanfermines case, including precedents, occurrence, preventive measures, trial, media coverage, from all the sources I can get; then I’ll make a text and send it to you. You can use it in any way you want as I’m just spreading the word and not promoting myself as a writer.
