A Belated Valentine's Day Story

Despite the day set aside to celebrate our loved ones yesterday, the courts remained open.  In deference to a day spent in court on Valentine's Day, I'd like to pass on a true story from the domestic violence part.

This court runs like any other, except that it specializes in domestic violence cases. 

Yesterday, a woman walked into the city court building, through the magnetometers, into the elevator, and into the courtroom.  It happens a thousand times a day.  Except in this woman's case, she carried a giant, red, heart shaped Valentine's Day balloon and giant, red box of chocolates into the domestic violence courtroom.
