It looks like Connecticut is one of the 4 best states to live in if you are a perpetrator of domestic violence. A recent study indicates that on a scale of 1 to 10, one being the lowest number of arrests for domestic violence and ten being the highest number of arrests, Connecticut rates a 2.
There are two explanations for this. One is that Connecticut is a state full of peaceful folks, or two, Connecticut's legal system has an extremely high tolerance for spousal abuse. Which explanation do you pick?
