http://www.democracynow.org - Just days after a Utah police officer shot dead his wife, two kids and his mother-in-law before killing himself, a new HBO documentary premiering at the Sundance Film Festival examines the shocking nationwide epidemic of intimate partner violence, focusing on the struggles of survivors of abuse and the advocates who support them. Set in North Carolina, "Private Violence" follows Kit Gruelle, herself a domestic violence survivor, as she helps other victims seek healing, justice and social change. Gruelle joins us along with the film's director, Cynthia Hill. "We're so desensitized to violence in the United States, that oftentimes women have to be beaten badly enough before a criminal justice system responds," Gruelle says.
