Man Locks Wife in Shed For Singing "Ding Dong Ditch the Witch is Dead" About His Mother

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."

  1. Well if i was him i wouldn't have put her in the shed i'd just talk to her about it. I mean what she was doing was harsh, but he did have to put her in a shed he could have just kicked her out, talk to her something like that.

  2. He didn't have to put her in the shed, she didn't deserve that. She may not have been talking about his mother. She was just singing a song just to sing it , no reason at all. But all she had to do is be a good wife and be there for him when he's going through things. That's what being in a relationship is all about.

  3. Her behavior was not the best.But her husband did not know for sure what she was talking about she probably didn't mean it the way he took it. She still not deserve to be assaulted because of a song she was singing a song.

  4. She might have deserved it but he probably went a little far with what he did. and she probably didn't really mean it the way he took it. Yes i would have been mad to but i would have never gone that far with it.

  5. There is no real way to tell if she was talking about his mother or not. I don't think a person could be that inconsiderate about the mother of their spouse even if they didn't like them. She might have just really liked that song. He should have just sat down and talked to her about the issue.

  6. It's wrong for him to lock her up in shed but it's extremely wrong for her to talk about his mother that past away. She kinda deserve that punch but he shouldn't hit a girl at all in any instinct. He should of just left her and left it at that. Now he has to suffer from that.
