      So Americans do not have respect for life? With the number of kidnappings for money, mass murders based on ones religion, the horror that exists with Boko Haram, ritualistic sacrifices and let’s not start on the gladly accepted oppression from the FG and any individual who has enough money to do so… I beg to differ add Nigerians to that “list” of individuals who do not have respect for human life..

    These situations are rarely an isolated incident. They are usually a fatal incident in ongoing domestic abuse. Domestic abuse is about one person desire for power and control and using abuse to get their own way.
