Australian Story Tonight- Catherine Smith
Normally I would not plug a TV show, but I was touched by this ABC media release:
They say everybody has a breaking point. After 30 years Catherine Smith finally reached hers.
For three decades, Catherine Smith endured sadistic domestic violence described as one of the most extreme examples ever witnessed in Australia.
Finally two years ago, she pointed a loaded gun at her estranged husband Kevin Smith.
The result … a landmark court case that drove a jury to tears.
