In no way, will i downgrade that happen here, but i ask the question, how did the Violence Against Women Act stop this?
WHAT IS THE VIOLENCE AGAINST WOMEN ACT?
The Violence Against Women Act (VAWA) is a landmark piece of legislation that sought to improve criminal justice and community-based responses to domestic violence, dating violence, sexual assault and stalking in the United States.
The passage of VAWA in 1994 and its reauthorization in 2000, 2005 and 2013, has changed the landscape for victims who once suffered in silence. Victims of domestic violence, dating violence, sexual assault and stalking have been able to access services, and a new generation of families and justice system professionals has come to understand that domestic violence, dating violence, sexual assault and stalking are crimes that our society will not tolerate.
One actress has suffered a concussion, multiple cuts, and bruises, and might have to get multiple surgeries after a horrific attack outside of a New York City bar that may have racial elements. Jennifer Agostini and a friend were having a good time last weekend. But when they left around 3 A.M. on Sunday, a horde of 10-15 thugs brutally beat them. She took pictures of the aftermath and is just covered in blood. The assault was reportedly caused when one of their friends tried to re-enter the bar to get her credit card that was left behind (via NY Post):
They got jumped and beaten to the ground by a group of 10 to 15 people who were yelling “white motherf—ers,” “dirty white b—-es” and “f—k those white b—-es and their money”

Actress Jennifer Agostini, 43, and swimsuit model Prendinellys Garcia, 47, ran up a nearly $1,000 tab at Midtown lounge Sky Room for their friend’s birthday Saturday night before leaving around 3 a.m. Sunday, papers filed in Manhattan Supreme Court sat.
But on their way out of the West 40th Street club, they got jumped and beaten to the ground by a group of 10 to 15 people who were yelling “white motherf—ers,” “dirty white b—-es” and “f—k those white b—-es and their money,” the court papers say.
“It was just this stampede as we were leaving. We just got rushed and assaulted by, I can’t tell you by how many people,” Agostini — who is set to begin filming the show “Brooklyn Ties” this spring — told The Post.
Agostini and the others — who are asking a judge to have the bar keep surveillance video and other records of the incident — say they don’t know exactly why the brawl erupted.
The incident touched off when one of their friends tried to go back into the bar for a forgotten credit card after their party had left, according to court papers.
The actress wants Sky Room to hold the surveillance footage of the attack. Now, it’s a local crime story for sure, but let’s not kid ourselves that if this was a non-white person, we would have a tad more coverage, along with endless thought pieces and commentaries about how Donald Trump is to blame for this. I hope Agostini finds justice after this horrendous assault.
