"Multiplying Evil"

The body of missing Orgeon mother Heather Mallory was found last week in a forest. She had not been seen since her husband Brian Cole claimed she simply vanished.

Another angry controlling abusive husband decided when Heather announced the marriage was over and she was seeking a divorce he would in my opinion, take her very life.

On Friday July 3, 2010, Portland, OR., police said that 37-year-old Brian Cole was arrested for her murder in Sagle, Idaho, and is awaiting extradition.

At the time Heather vanished the husband told authorities "his wife drove away angry and never returned." How often have we read that wives and mothers in abusive marriages or relationships somehow just picked up and left? This case reeked as do most we read about when a victim of abuse decides to move on with their lives minus the abuser.

Notice how the abuser begins weaving their web of lies. If you recall Josh Powell ( wife Susan Powell)of Utah; Craig Stebic (wife Lisa Stebic) of Illinois; Drew Peterson (Stacy Peterson) of Illinois; Shon Pernice (wife Renee Pernice) Kansas City or George Parker (wife Theresa Parker)Atlanta, GA, all have the same similar stories about what happend to their wives.

With the exception of Theresa Parker the women missing all had kids. And do not believe for a minute they would ever leave their children behind. These missing women and mothers were each married to contolling abusive husbands.

I realize that when Martin Luther King spoke or wrote about violence he did not intend to apply his words of wisdom to victims who have lost their lives to controlling, angry men hell bend on their own justice. The abuser who preys and kills their loved ones is summarized below in words written over 45 years ago.

"The ultimate weakness of violence is that it is a descending spiral, begetting the very thing it seeks to destroy. Instead of diminishing evil, it multiplies it. Through violence you may murder the liar, but you cannot murder the lie, nor establish the truth. Through violence you may murder the hater, but you do not murder hate. In fact, violence merely increases hate. So it goes. ... Returning hate for hate multiplies hate, adding deeper darkness to a night already devoid of stars. Darkness cannot drive out darkness: only light can do that. Hate cannot drive out hate: only love can do that."
