A vote by the Topeka City Council tonight to repeal their municipal city ordinance allowing domestic abusers to leave jail to save money--approved 7 to 3--leaves the women of Topeka with no recourse against abuse within the city. If they wish for justice to be served, they will have to be geographically located outside of the city limits, within Shawnee County.
