On March 20, A British man, Andrew Salmon, pleaded guilty to locking his wife in a shed and assaulting her for singing "Ding Dong Ditch the Witch is Dead." His mother died last December, and apparently, she was not sympathetic about his moms death, did not go to her funeral, and didn't provide any support to him. Salmon claims that she would sing Ding Dong Ditch the Witch is Dead at times. Eventually, he got fed up with her behavior, and when she got to their house one day Salmon said "it's my house now, you're not getting in." He then locked her in a shed. Later, she escaped the shed and then he punched her. Salmon has not been sentenced yet.
My Reaction: I think that if Salmon was dealing with that type of behavior for 3 months, something like this was bound to happen. It surprises me that he put up with it for as long as 3 months. First she didn't go to the funeral, then she continued not to support him. I would think that would be enough for him to do something about it, like kicking her out of the house or something. I don't think what he did was the best course of action, but given everything that she said and did, I think she deserved it in a way. Salon said "I shouldn't have done it and I am sorry but I was provoked into doing it."
