NASHVILLE, TENNESSEE- When it comes to crimes involving sex, there’s definitely a double standard when men are the victims versus women.
So, when news broke about how a Nashville, Tennessee man had contacted police this month after a night of sex with his girlfriend got too rough, media outlets began to make fun of the alleged victim.
Perhaps a different perspective is warranted here to shed some light on the double standards present.
On January 1st of this year, a man had contacted police in the early hours of the morning after his girlfriend, Kristen Parris, had allegedly bit and scratched him during intercourse.
When media outlets got a hold of this particular headline, the story was spun into something lighthearted worth laughing at.
Comment sections from social media sites went into a flurry of accusations that the arrested woman needs a “real man”. Yet, a review of the actual affidavit stated that the victim might have been getting abused for longer than just a night of “rough sex”.
A review of the affidavit stated that the victim had contacted police and filed a domestic assault claim, stating that Parris had began to bite and scratch during intimacy.
More specifically, that the actions performed by Parris’ were far beyond the scope of what they normally engaged in sexually.
The victim had presented two bite marks, one to his arm and one on his back. Police also noted that there were several scratches on the man’s back.
While the above synopsis inspired a few chuckles from those online, what wasn’t funny was the portion of the affidavit that alleged Parris’ had repeatedly punched the victim in the face weeks earlier.
Based upon the responses online alleging that the victim in this case is anything other than a “man”, perhaps that’s why he was hesitant to call police when he was assaulted previously by his girlfriend.
Keep in mind that despite men being nearly half of domestic violence victims in United States, the female aggressors are almost always arrested and charged in less frequency than male aggressors.
In fact, in all cases in the United States, men who identify their assailants see them arrested 30 percent of the time. When a female victim identifies her assailant, they’re arrested 42 percent of the time.
The woman in this case was released on a $500 bond and has a court appearance on January 14th, but some wonder if a man who initiated “rough sex” and got the cops called on them by their partner would get the same treatment.
Well, back in 2019, Rodolfo Alexander Jerez-Ortiz from Florida had allegedly engaged in rough sex with his partner and found himself arrested too.
During consensual intercourse, Jerez-Ortiz made attempts at penetrating his partner anally and it caused some minor bleeding on the victim.
The victim also pointed out some bruising on her shoulders from the endeavor. The man was charged with sexual battery and had his bond set at $750,000.
In that case, Jerez-Ortiz admitted that he tried to have anal intercourse with his partner, but ceased when she claimed that it began to hurt. The parallels are hard to ignore, as they both consisted of something happening during consensual sex that someone didn’t want to happen.
I’m a huge advocate of masculinity, but that doesn’t mean that you should have something against your will in any sexual capacity happen to you and feel shamed into not saying something.
Furthermore, while critics claim that this was a waste of police time and not an actual crime was committed, Tennessee police officers are required by law to arrest somebody if called to a domestic violence scene toting probable cause.
Apparently, the markings were compelling enough for the police to take Parris into custody. Some food for thought and a different take on a case reported wildly different elsewhere.
In the meantime, you’ve got another woman in Florida arrested for a different kind of assault.
A Brooksville woman has just been arrested and charged after allegedly trying to urinate on a police officer, along with a number of other crimes. It’s almost hard to believe, until the word “Florida” is mentioned and a grinning mugshot is displayed of the accused.
Serina Probus was arrested on New Year’s Day for a misdemeanor charge of domestic violence and a felony charge of battery on a law enforcement officer, but the charges have evolved since then.
The accused is now looking at charges for aggravated battery with a deadly weapon in light of what was uncovered after her arrest.
The 20-year old woman was reportedly spending time at her sister-in-law’s home, having more than a few drinks while celebrating the coming of the New Year.
With Probus’s six-month old baby in tow, the inebriated woman decided that she was going to drive home drunk with her child. Probus’ sister-in-law attempted to stop the intoxicated woman from driving home, wrapping her arms around her to inhibit her from leaving. In response, Probus bit her sister-in-law on the hand to escape her grasp.
Police had made their way over to the residence after the commotion and took measures to get Probus into custody. Of course, any law enforcement officer knows it’s rarely an easy arrest when alcohol is involved.
The woman began swearing at officers and had managed to kick out one of the windows inside the cruiser during her detainment. When sheriff’s deputies opted to restrain Probus’s legs to stop her from enacting further destruction, she allegedly tried to relieve her bladder – all over one of the deputies.
The class-act then allegedly spit on the deputies as well once they secured her in the cruiser.
As if the alleged conduct of the intoxicated suspect wasn’t going to give her enough legal troubles, authorities found out Probus was actually a wanted suspect in an aggravated battery investigation.
Authorities had charged Probus for an incident that happened on October 10th, 2019 while she was in custody at the jail. The alleged charge stems from an argument at a bar with a man that escalated into the victim being hit by Probus’s car.

When the victim was trying to walk away from the argument with the young woman, Probus struck the man with her SUV at a speed of 15 mph. The man had struck the hood of her vehicle and then fell to the ground.
While the charges are quite serious, the manner in which police made the connection was rather funny as Probus appears to have inadvertently confessed to the crime.
After striking the man with her car, Probus actually brought the man to the hospital. Authorities had discovered that Probus left a message with the victim that read:
“Tell Det. Murphy I hit you with the car ima [sic] tell her you deserved it and I would do it all over again if I could.”
In response to the charges for the vehicular assault, Probus told police that she doesn’t remember any of it. Her excuse for her foggy memory of the alleged incident was that she was “high on cocaine”.
Clearly the accused in this case might have some issues with illegal substances and alcohol, as the alleged behaviors aren’t exactly normal. Yet, even if Probus gets convicted of any of the charges brought against her, it likely won’t amount to much prison time anyway.
As detailed by Professor Sonja Starr, there are sentencing benefits to being a woman convicted of a crime. The professor showed that women with identical criminal histories and convicted of identical crimes to men serve an average of 63 percent less time in prison.
That’s also assuming a woman ever makes it to prison, as women are twice as likely to avoid incarceration if convicted for the same crimes as their male counterparts. Hopefully in this case, justice is served accordingly.
If this was New York, instead of Florida, Probus probably wouldn’t even be locked up for her crimes.
There is a pattern developing in New York.
Unfortunately, the repetitive recidivism associated with these literal ‘get out of jail free’ cards will not deter the Democrat leaders that are enacting these imbecilic reforms.
Just a few hours after being released without bail under New York’s new bail reform law, a 26-year old homeless man with a history of unprovoked attacks was arrested by police again.
Eugene Webb was arrested in front of a bank branch on West 4th Street in Greenwich Village for aggressive panhandling.
Officials said when police approached him around 7:00 p.m. on Friday, Webb tried to run. After a brief pursuit he surrendered at W 3rd Street and 6th Avenue.
Police searched him and found a glass pipe containing the synthetic drug K2.

Webb is charged with reckless endangerment, disorderly conduct, criminal possession of a controlled substance, and obstructing governmental administration.
He was awaiting arraignment in Manhattan Criminal Court.
Webb is accused in several random attacks in Manhattan, including one earlier in the week in which he repeatedly punched a 23-year-old woman after she exited the train station at West Houston and Varick Street in Greenwich Village.
He was freed with supervised release under New York’s new bail reform guidelines. And he wasn’t the first.
Folks, it keeps happening. So, we’re going to keep telling you about it.
A man in New York was arrested two days ago. He was released with an appearance ticket for court. Hours later, he was arrested again. For crimes against the same victim as in the first incident.
If only someone had been able to foresee the dangers and idiocy of these bail reform policies!
In Fairport, a 26-year-old man, Nicholas Jordan, allegedly pointed a loaded shotgun at a person and threatened to kill them. Police arrested him for second degree menacing around 12:30pm Tuesday.
Given the state’s new bail reform, Jordan was able to avoid jail and was released with the issuance of a court appearance ticket.
“Phew. That’ll keep the victims safe,” said no police officer in America.
After learning his lesson and being properly punished for his crimes (sarcasm), Jordan allegedly began threatening the same victim again. This time the threats were via text message, according to officers, and police were called to the victim’s home in nearby Macedon.

Due to the first incident involving a loaded firearm, as well as the victim’s home being near Gananda schools, the schools were placed on lock down as a safety precaution.
Macedon police requested assistance from Fairport police who, as we know, were quite familiar with Jordan. Jordan was again arrested in Fairport around 4pm.
I wonder if 3.5 hours is a new record for a criminal’s second arrest.
There is shockingly little information about this incident available at this time, specifically whether Jordan was held after the second arrest.
While it’s not confirmed, Fairport Police did speculate that Jordan would likely be released again following this arrest.
If there’s one thing we know about criminals, it’s that they will always show up to their court dates when appointed.
And if there’s one thing we know about murderers, it’s that they deserve to walk free while awaiting their trial.
You know, for committing murder.
