In the USA, the poverty level is about $14,000 per year for single persons.
As a Californian making $10-$15K/year, excuse me if I don't think we need to donate charity handouts to people making $70K, which by the way is well above the median income.

While I agree that domestic violence is a bigger problem for women and am not supported the grandparent poster, I think the higher arrest rates are likely to be a function of men only reporting the more severe incidents to the police due to the humiliation/emasculation factor. If men wait to only call the police when they have visible bruises/cuts, that makes it a lot more likely that the police visit will result in an arrest than when there's no readily obvious physical evidence. This is likely a factor in why 62% of female perpetrators were only reported once as well.

If you never use mobile internet or games, it's not that hard to get 5 days charge out of a smartphone. I probably charge my smartphone every 5 days or so because I don't use it much.
Based on your lack of empathy and desire to see innocent people suffer to protect you, I project you as having a 50% chance of committing a crime in the future. I therefore propose locking you up for life in prison right now so you won't have the chance.
