Domestic Violence in Spain

Watch this CNN news clip about a talk show in Spain, who under the guise of talking about domestic violence with a survivor, allowed her estranged boyfriend to come on and (surprise!) propose marriage *never mind she had a restraining order* -- in front of 2 million people the woman said NO. A week or so later she was stabbed to death.

The clip goes on to discuss the epidemic problem of DV in Spain. It's heartbreaking.

I read about this the other day and could not believe it. I don't understand how anyone could ever think this would be a good idea. Apparently to the producers the idea of a restraining order just added to the drama that would bring ratings. Sick.
