The Super Bowl has become an unofficial American holiday. For many, it is a day full of friends, food, and excitement while watching the big game. However, for many, the Super Bowl is a day of fear.
It is often reported that incidents of domestic violence spike on Super Bowl weekend. It is unclear as to why, but drinking and gambling can lead to bad decisions and tragic consequences. Your team may lose, money may be lost, but there is no justification for committing domestic violence. None.
If you are concerned about being the victim, take steps to protect yourself. Keep the DV Hotline phone number at hand, make sure you have your phone, cash, and anything else you may need in order to make a quick escape. Don’t be afraid to call the police.
This year, let’s keep the violence on the field.
