In a city as heavily populated as Denver, Colorado, everything you do is visible, for better or for worse. It is expected that neighbors, co-workers, and even perfect strangers will talk amongst themselves about things that they see that do not involve them at all. This talk often leads to inaccurate information.
For example, a harmless and ordinary dispute between you and your spouse or partner can spark conversation within the community, and before you know it, you are being charged with domestic violence.
The rich diversity of language and culture in Denver can lead to even more barriers of understanding amongst its citizens. It is much easier for passersby to misunderstand an argument when they do not speak the same language as the arguing couple.
For these reasons, a charge of domestic violence in a metropolis such as Denver can be the result of a big misunderstanding. However, if convicted, the accused faces serious penalties, including a restraining order and prison time.
