DA Harris to teens: Chris Brown-Rihanna abuse is not cool

District Attorney Kamala Harris kicks off Domestic Violence Awareness month at Galileo High School Thursday and is pointing to Chris Brown’s assault of his pop star girlfriend Rihanna as a prime example of the crime.

“After the Chris Brown/Rihanna abuse scandal elevated the issue nationally, the DA partnered with local service providers to make sure young people understand what abuse is and how to be safe in relationships,” reads a press release for the event.

Harris, who is running for attorney general in 2010, will gather with students at 11 a.m.
