If a sheriff has been known to beat on women, he should be removed from office as soon as possible. The reason is that he has lost the public trust at that point and can't possibly be impartial when enforcing the law. If an inordinate amount of women have been arrested by this particular sheriff, it is painfully obvious he shouldn't be in office if he beats on females.
Women should always stand their rights with men no matter who it is, a sherrif, or anyone else. Especially if the men have been known to beat on women. They need to realize their place and need to realize that that is not okay. Women should stand their ground in front of him.
