So Mr woman-beater in the story below has apologized to me, not to my friend yet cause she is obviously still too disturbed. So the question is that where do you draw the line between a mistake/one time incidence and something that is totally unacceptable and cannot be forgiven?? He seemed genuinely sorry and like everyone these days was quick to blame it on the alcohol. The question is can someone who does such a vile act be given a chance to redeem themself??
