Why this woman put domestic violence selfies on Facebook

TIPTON COUNTY, Tenn. — A Tipton County woman has suddenly become the face of domestic violence in the Mid-South after posting graphic images of herself on Facebook.

Angela Brower is now talking about what happened to her, and said she’s ready to be the voice of abused women who are too afraid to speak up.

“I just want these women to get away. I want them to stop letting these men do this to them,” said Brower.

Brower said her boyfriend attacked her inside her home after she told him to move out.

She said he kicked in her television and punched a hole in her wall right after he beat her.

“One punch! After that, I couldn’t see what was going on,” said Brower.

Thursday,  Brower had to have a metal ring put around her eye and a plate put in her nose.

She admits it wasn’t the first time her boyfriend hurt her, but says she no longer wants to hide and wants other women to know that no one deserves to be treated like that.

“I’ve had a friend of mine die from this . You know, that’s hard,” said Brower.

Her boyfriend, Walter Frank Bradley, had been charged with aggravated assault and is being held in the Tipton County Jail on $20,000 bond.

Brower says she’s already received messages on Facebook from women asking for her help.

She says if she saves just one life, then she’s done her part.

“I would like to save as many as possible,” said Brower.

Brower has set up a GoFundMe page to help with medical expenses that won’t be covered by insurance.
