Just when the public has demonstrated a belief that domestic violence is a crime of the past, the case of survivor producer Bruce Beresford-Redmanmakes the headlines. It seems that all the ingredients for a domestic homicide are present.
And if this case is not enough, we have seen domestic violence creep back into pop culture and celebrity justice - a la the Brown case and the Charlie Sheen cases, as examples. There is no arguing that there is a problem, but like everything else one can’t help to ask: Is there a solution? While leaving the abuse is the only solution that is often a lot easier said than done. But leaving and preparing just got one step easier for victims thanks to tireless victim’s advocate Susan Murphy Milano. In her book “Times Up”, Murphy Milano recognizes that domestic violence in not simply a crime de jour. It a real crime that was around well before OJ and will still exist well beyond Brown and Sheen.
"To say that Susan Murphy Milano has hit the nail on the head (again)is a total understatement! Murphy Milano's book is well crafted and timely.
