Eunice man arrested after allegedly assaulting woman for second time

Domestic violence is one of those issues that many communities have difficulty talking about. No one likes to acknowledge that it is a problem, and it seems as though we all collectively think that if we do not talk about it, it does not exist.

However, domestic violence cannot be appropriately addressed unless and until we acknowledge that it is an issue to be concerned about here around Lafayette, exactly as it is in many other communities.

Earlier this week, a Eunice man was arrested after allegedly abusing a woman. He has now been charged with disturbing the peace, second-degree battery and domestic abuse battery with injuries.

The same man was accused of attacking the same woman back in July 2012. Authorities have not said anything about their relationship, but the charge of domestic violence would be inappropriate if there were not some connection between the two of them.

The woman was taken to a local hospital to be treated for her injuries, which it does not seem are severe. The man was arrested and his bond was set at $11,500.

Now, given that nothing has been proven here, we do not know the full story of what happened, and the man who has been accused is to be seen as innocent until proven otherwise. That being said, we think it is the job of our community to make sure that resources are available both for people who are in an abusive relationship and for people who have difficulty controlling their anger.

Each of us is responsible for his or her individual actions, but we do think there is a societal obligation to reach out and do what we can to stop violent domestic situations.
