#OscarPistorius:  Text messages between Oscar Pistorius and his slain girlfriend Reeva Steenkamp showed rage fueled by jealousy. The text messages were read in court during his high-profile trial for the shooting death of Steenkamp, who he claimed he mistook for an intruder.

One text sent on Jan. 27, 2013 read, “u are very quick to act cold and offish when you’re unhappy… every 5 seconds i hear how u dated another chick,” she wrote.

Perhaps the most damaging to Pistorius was the line Steenkamp wrote saying, “i am the girl who let go with u even when i was scared out of my mind to. i’m the girl who feel in love with u and wanted to tell u this weekend.

“I get snapped at and told my accents and my voice are annoying. i touch your neck to show u i care you tell me to stop. Stop chewing gum. do this don’t do that,” read part of one long text. Source: ABC News

The text messages come as a third witness testified to hearing screaming leading up to the moments when Reeva Steenkamp was murdered by Oscar Pistorius. Anette Stipp told the court that “The thing I remember the most, and I don’t think I will ever forget, is the screaming.”

Stipp’s testimony corroborates Michelle Burger and Charl Johnson’s testimonies. They also said they heard bangs, followed by screaming and another set of bangs with more screaming, the City Press reports.

Democratic firebrand Rep. Alan Grayson was slapped with a restraining order after his estranged wife, Lolita Grayson, complained he “deliberately and with force pushed” her “very hard against the front door, causing her to fall to the ground.”

According to the sworn complaint, Lolita Grayson said her estranged husband “showed up, unannounced” as she was preparing to take their two youngest children to a play date and asked to speak with her inside their home.

Mrs. Grayson told police when she refused, he deliberately pushed her very hard against the front door. After Lolita Grayson told her husband not to touch her, she said she pushed him in the face and struck him in the stomach with her knee. She then called 911.

Juan Lopez, an aide to Rep. Grayson, told the Orlando Sentinel that he witnessed the exchange from 15 feet away, and denied that he assaulted anyone.

Alan Grayson’s attorney released a video purportedly showing that he didn’t hit his wife, but she did.

SHOCK:  R&B singer Mary J. Blige’s father, Thomas Blige, 63, is in critical condition after being stabbed by his former girlfriend during a domestic dispute. Thomas Blige was stabbed three times, including once to the neck, Thursday morning during an altercation at his home at the Arbors of Battle Creek apartment complex in Michigan, Battle Creek Enquirer reports.

Detective Sgt. Jim Martens said police believe Blige saw the woman deflating the tires on his Ford SUV in the parking lot outside the apartment and went out to confront her.

The couple argued and Blige was stabbed.

He returned to his apartment and she went to her apartment, police said. She was arrested without incident.

Martens said police have handled seven domestic violence complaints between Blige and his 50-year-old former girlfriend since August.

The woman was charged in October with aggravated domestic violence after she hit Blige in the head with a glass candlestick. She entered a no-contest plea to the charge and on Jan. 10 was placed on six months probation. She was ordered to have “non-assaultive” contact with Blige. Source: Battle Creek Enquirer

Our thoughts and prayers go out to Thomas Blige and his daughter. Women aren’t the only victims of domestic violence. Sometimes men are. This is a tragedy.

Marissa Alexander Remains On Bond with Tightened Conditions

Marissa Alexander Remains On Bond with Tightened Conditions

Marissa Alexander will remain free on bail under tightened conditions, Circuit Judge James Daniel ruled on Friday, due to the fact “mistakes were made.”

State Attorney Angela Corey sought to have Alexander’s bail revoked because she ran errands, such as going to the bank, transporting relatives and going to store to purchase clothes.

Marissa Alexander argued that she had sought and received permission for each of the trips she took from the Sheriff’s Office CPC counselor assigned to monitor her compliance with the terms of release. 

CPC counselor April Wilson testified that she did approve each of Alexander’s trips and did so in the belief that she was following the court’s order specifying the terms of release. Her defense successfully argued that she reasonably relied on the permission of Wilson in believing she remained in compliance with her bond conditions.
