Biden: Strangling a Spouse 'Isn't Your Garden-Variety Slap Across The Face'

By Joe Schoffstall | March 13, 2013 | 5:06pm EDT

On Wednesday, Vice President Joe Biden was speaking and attempted to contrast "different kinds of violence."

Biden says on the extreme end is strangulation, threatening to shoot, and sexual assault of a victim. On the other end of the spectrum is the "garden variety slap across the face."

"That's exactly what you've done here in the state. In a sense, it's both complicated and simple. We've learned that certain behavior on the part of an abuser portend much more danger than other behaviors. For example, if an abuser has attempted to strangle his victim, if he's threatened to shoot his victim her, if he sexually assaulted her - and there's a number of other signs, there's about eight others - these are telltale signs that this isn't your garden-variety slap across the face - which is totally unacceptable, in and of itself," Biden said.
