I just saw rock drummer Tommy Lee on TV. I didn't know that he served 4 months in jail for beating his ex-Baywatch beauty wife, Pamela Anderson Lee. She had a broken fingernail and some redness on her back.
I am not condoning wife-beating, but the punishment seems to be far in excess of the crime. Pamela Anderson was a millionare with thriving career, and she could have left him at any time. A broken nail is trivial compared to the sacrifices that husbands and wives routinely make to support a marriage.
