(Editor’s Note: This post originally drew from a video posted by National Review Online, which was edited in a way that did not include “which is totally unacceptable in and of itself.” The post has now been amended to include Vice President Joseph R. Biden’s full remarks.)
Vice President Joseph R. Biden, during a speech on Wednesday morning in Washington, was asked to comment on domestic violence.
“We’ve learned that certain behaviors on the part of an abuser portend much more danger than other behaviors. For example, if an abuser has attempted to strangle his victim, if he’s threatened to shoot her, if he’s sexually assaulted her (and there are number of other signs — about eight others), these are tell tale signs to say this isn’t your garden variety slap across the face, which is totally unacceptable in and of itself.”
