People suck:

King County Prosecutors are accusing a man with having so much power over his teenage girlfriend, that he actually got her to sign a contract giving him permission to beat her up. His name is Graydon Smith. He was convicted of domestic violence in 2003 and now he's back in jail facing five more counts of domestic violence and assault.... According to court documents Smith, not only abused his pregnant 19-year-old girlfriend physically and emotionally, he put it in writing, forcing her to sign a contract allowing him to "physically assault her on any part of her body except for her pregnant belly." Smith apparently thought the contract was enough to protect him. In fact when he was arrested police found his girlfriend with a swollen bloody lip, a cut on her chin, red marks on both sides of her neck and a lump on the back of her head."

According to Graydon's Facebook page his relationship status is "complicated."
