It's a question that is often asked when it comes to domestic violence: Why doesn't she just leave? Ruthie Garcia from SafeHomes of Augusta explains that's not the right question. Beyond that, many offenders don't even realize they are doing something wrong. Even if they do, they don't feel responsible. We face the hard questions and ask what needs to be done to make a difference.
