    I don’t even know what to say about that. I guess we are all going to jail on Halloween.

    Yup, she knows how to play the game.

    Most DV laws are writtten so vaguely and poorly that almost anything one does that may ” threaten” the partner qualifies for an arrest.

    Well, it seems to me that it wasn’t the watermelon per se that was the issue, but the perceived threat of violence towards her that got him arrested. Her description of ‘passive-aggressive’ in this situation suggests a game I’ve seen too often, where a bully behaves in a way that technically is innocent but is filled with menace; then he can claim when being challenged that he wasn’t doing anything and she was over reacting. Some may say she was overreacting; I suspect she was being brave in the face of fear.

    Yosemite Sam: "Oh yeah? Well I speak LOUD! and I carry a BIGGER stick! and I use it, too!" BAM!

    In some self defense training sessions a watermelon is often used with knife work.
    This lady is obviously not comfortable with the gentleman and need to read the Gift of Fear – Gavin de Becker. http://www.amazon.com/The-Gift-Fear-Gavin-Becker-ebook/dp/B0036Z9U2A
