Domestic Violence Lobbyist Guns Down Husband After Five Day Marriage

While it is far from always being the case, most of us tend to think of domestic violence as a crime that typically occurs within the home, not blocks away:

Witnesses told police that Bridges was wearing a nightgown and a shower cap as she argued with Rankins on the sidewalk on North Avenue near West Peachtree Street around 10:45 p.m. Monday.

And moments later, witnesses said, they heard shots. They said she then "calmly walked away."

A MARTA police officer stopped her as she was getting into her car, perhaps to return to her home nearby on Centennial Olympic Park Drive.

Arelisha Bridges apparently chased down her new husband in her car and then shot him down on the street after an argument.

Bridges is registered as a lobbyist for the little-known National Declaration for Domestic Violence Order, but seems to have been almost inactive in that role.

Seems she should have been a lobbyist for Orderly Domestic Violence.
