It's like I said in another thread, I'll reserve judgement, but why would Hardy call 911 when it's obvious he was trying to defuse the situation?
Look at this forum for example, you have the doubters and you have those condemning Hardy before all the details are out. As a child I lived with my grandparents, but my mother was abused by her boyfriend all the time and she'd come home crying that he beat her. My grandparents would tell her to call the police but she never would and the abuse continued for years until he finally killed her. When it happened I really didn't feel sadness because for one she abandoned me, but also the fact I knew she was an idiot for not leaving him.
I think many of us who've seen domestic abuse first hand always feel sympathy for the female as the victim, which in some cases it's 100% the truth. This has led us as a society to always view the male as the abuser and the female as a victim. It's a double standard where females could beat the living crap out of a guy with a baseball bat and he could grab her arm and leave a bruise sending him to jail.
Let the case progress so we can make informed decisions rather than what I've seen posted elsewhere where people pretty much would get a lynch mob together to hang him if they could.
What I take from the audio is that Hardy was trying to defuse the situation and called 911. The "victim" seems to know the criminal justice system quite well and was trying to get Hardy to hurt her and if that didn't work, inflict wounds on herself to make her look beaten. I would be curious to know if she has a history of mental illness, drug abuse, or any related domestic altercations in the past.
It's like the saying goes, you have her side, his side, and the truth is somewhere in between.
