Should convicted perpetrators of domestic violence be allowed to play in the NBA (Or other professional sports leagues)?

As an employer i would pass on that employee. Mind you I employ hospitality staff, the majority are women, I don't want some woman hating **** near my business. That said 1 in 5 men beat their wives, its ****ing horrid.

I'm not trying to be cute here but I heard, not from reliable sources or anything, that Australian men are kind of cruel and/or abusive towards women. Obviously this is a relative issue so maybe within the culture there's no way to judge, but do you think that's true?

I'll give more context. It was as a U.S. Navy sailor pulling into Perth (I believe that's your neighborhood) being told by the old timers that the reason Australian women like American men is because we're so much nicer and more respectful to women than Australian men are. That said, I never heard a single reliable story of a Navy sailor hooking up with an Australian woman who wasn't being paid for her time so I didn't see any examples of Australian women being into American dudes.

Kind of a tangent but I'm a horrible eavesdropper and them Australian ladies talk frankly about sex loudly on the transit train. I got the impression Australian women are much less sexually repressed than American women are just based on overheard conversations. I am a legit eavesdropping criminal though. If eavesdropping had the same legal consequences as peeping I'd be in prison.

At present 1 to 2 women a week are killed by their domestic partner (in a country of 25 million people that in comparison to the US has a very low homicide rate.) The leading cause for hospitalisation for females between 18 and 40 is domestic violence. 80 percent of all women who access crisis support have been the victim of domestic and or sexual violence. So yeah we have a problem. In our state after this event

A bunch of new laws were put in place some are very good but they could further be improved. We were doing a program at work to really start to highlight and protect patients and were appropriate staff from this but the nurse driving it left to do indigenous outreach work and the program died.
