"Family violence is so, so overrated," he asserted, saying that "just me touching you" would be considered "an act of family violence," adding: "An inordinate amount of time [is] spent on that when we could get more criminals out of Harris County by doing what I suggest, I guarantee."
I suspect most "just me touching you" cases never get to trial anyway, assuming charges are filed in the first place.
