Domestic Abuse Up Close: Man Beats Wife, Forces Their Son to Film It (VIDEO)

This post, written by Amanda Marcotte, originally appeared on Pandagon.

Here's an interesting video that I grabbed from Echidne. Warning: It's really distressing -- in part, it's a video a man made his son take of him beating his wife. What's fascinating is it really shows how justified abusers feel about their behavior. The end part is interesting, too, since they interview the judge on this case.
