Yes same time tomorrow night. She goes into jail and talks to the men. It looks pretty confronting.
I don't know if the controlling behaviour is classed as violence, but rather can be characterised as 'abusive' behaviour..

Abusive behaviour is domestic violence.
Derogatory and insulting language is covered under the domestic violence act.
Even in the video the judge at the end says the calling and facebook stalking was harassment.
I wonder if the reason they say domestic violence starts as 'controlling' is that is a line in the sand .....I don't know just a thought.
I think it starts with snide comments and isolation and can be different in every relationship.

I watched it.
The guy in the court case that was shown made me so angry. I was disgusted that he denied what he did, and relieved for the victim when he was found guilty and sentenced. What a despicable coward.
I was really impressed with the women's refuge. What a fantastic facility. I think some of those women living there would be dead now if it wasn't for this kind of protection.

Well worth watching.
The lawyer for the ex... "I put it to you that you caused these injuries yourself because you were intoxicated". Man... I know we need to have legal representation for everyone, but how any decent person must feel putting that to a victim of domestic violence. It's so transparent; like "she walked into a door".
Relevant, given this is all around white ribbon day; some of the women who have likely died due to domestic violence this year:
