Tiger Woods - DV victim

The Tiger Woods story is still in the news. He claims that he drove into a fire plug and tree at 2:30 am, and is refusing to be interviewed by the police. He issued this confusing statement, and dropped out of upcoming golf tournaments.
TMZ reports:
Sources tell TMZ the Florida Highway Patrol is now focusing on obtaining a search warrant -- allowing them to seize medical records from the hospital that treated Tiger Woods -- in an attempt to determine if the wounds Woods sustained are consistent with a car accident or domestic violence.

We're told authorities believe they can show probable cause a crime was committed, a necessary step in obtaining a warrant.
It appears that his wife Elin injured him in the face with a golf club over adultery reports in the National Enquirer, and they set up the phony accident to cover it up.

I don't know the facts here, but everyone should understand how the law in this situation has been changed by feminists.

Tiger Woods can commit adultery all he wants, and there are no legal consequences. Elin can get a no-fault divorce at any time, whether there is adultery or not.

If you get hospital emergency room treatment for injuries to the head, such as stitches to the face, you will be quizzed about domestic violence. Unless you have a convincing story about a car accident or something like that, the hospital will report you to the cops.

If the cops suspect domestic violence, then they are trained to file charges whether anyone makes a complaint or not. Even if both Tiger and Elin swear that no crime occurred, she could be charged with felony domestic violence. It is feminist ideology that the police, physicians, and other authorities should actively intervene in marriages to bust them up if there is any evidence of violence. Tiger says:
I would also ask for some understanding that my family and I deserve some privacy no matter how intrusive some people can be.
I personally agree that they do deserve some privacy, but feminist law does not permit it. He will have to prove that his wife did not hit him, or his family could face criminal consequences. That's the law. Think about that the next time you goto the emergency room with an injury.

Update: Woods has been cited for careless driving, and the domestic violence matter is being dropped. He makes about $100 million a year in golf winnings and endorsements, so he and his wife are clamming up to protect their revenue stream. Without the money and the lawyers, they probably would have ended up with an ugly domestic violence charge. Such a charge can result even if there was no domestic violence, because there does not need to be an accuser and the cops and DA rely on circumstantial evidence.
