Police is moving on with the investigation of a possible domestic violence in the relationship of "Teen Mom" star Amber Portwood and her ex-fiance Gary Shirley. Back in September, MTV aired an episode where Amber threw punches and kicks at Gary when he threatened to leave and report her to Child Protective Services. The unedited tape is now requested for investigation.

Court papers were served to a lawyer representing the channel. The police asked for raw footage of any physical violence or potentially violent encounters between the young couple. They also require any footage of Amber talking about the assault, be it aired or unaired.

MTV has since cooperated with the police and handed out the tapes. "They normally have 30 days to respond and they already have the tapes with their attorney. They have helped us along in letting us know what was available," a spokesperson for the police department said to Radar Online. "MTV sent all the material ahead of time and once the subpoena was issued they said we could have access to the records."

Amber and Gary have one daughter together named Leah Leann Shirley who was there when her parents fought. They got engaged for a while before breaking up and continuing a rocky relationship. Few weeks after police went into investigation, Amber's father Shawn Portwood said that his daughter and Gary were going through couple counseling and were doing "fine".

Little children are least able to contend with domestic violence in their families. According to the U.S. Dept of Health and Human Services and DOJ statistics, more kids are killed by neglect and abuse in a year (1,760 in 2007), than all the female intimate partner homicides in a year. Mothers are the single largest group of kid killers, according to HHS and they have a rate twice that of fathers. Nowhere near the money is spent to protect kids from kid killing mothers as is spent by the domestic violence industry to protect women. A lot of innocent men are witch-hunted by the corrupt, gender feminist influenced, taxpayer funded, domestic violence industry. Involving the corrupt d.v. industry in an attempt to prevent abusive and neglectful deaths of children is a big mistake. No place better characterizes the corruption of the taxpayer funded, domestic violence industry than "Los Misandry" at Youtube.
