"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.
I have decided to officially and formally not apologize. I'm not sorry at all, even slightly.

    Indeed, I especially want to convey my absence of remorse to anyone who was offended by what I said. If you are the sort of person who gets twisted into knots when someone articulates a point of view that differs from your own, then you are exactly the sort of person who should never receive an apology for a differing point of view ‚ÄĒ if I were offering one, which, again, I'm not.
