Stop False Allegations of Domestic Violence

33,485 Letters Sent So Far

We, the undersigned, are writing in hopes of bringing to your attention a dire misjustice that is occuring in our state as well as many others across the US. Laws inacted to protect the victims of the vile crime of domestic violence are being misused by both citizens as well as law enforcement, and in this process innocent men's lives are being destroyed. In most states, the burden of proof is being thrown out and the simple word of the acuser is being taken without question, many times without the accused even being allowed to speak. True victims of domestic violence, some of whose names you will find below, find this to be deplorable. Not only can a woman falsely accuse a man of domestic violence without fear of consequence, but the accused man has no voice against her. The accuser can be a mentally disturbed individual using such laws to exact her revenge against a man who simply does not want to be in a relationship anymore, and her word is automatically taken, even when no evidence is in place. The man in such cases is automatically arrested, injunctions are automatically set in place, and even if he is able to prove his innocence in court he has lost months of his life due to the fact that she cried wolf. Worse yet are the cases of these innocent men who are poor and have no means to hire private attorneys. Their public defenders assume they are guilty and therefore do only the bare necessities to be their legal voice.We are not in any way asking for a revocation of the laws that protect true victims of domestic violence. Our wish is that these laws be revisited and indications made to to allow for criminal and civil prosecution when someone, whether male or female, has misused these laws in a vindictive and cunning way. We also would ask that law enforcement officers, public attorneys, and judges be forced to recognize the precept that the accused is innocent until proven guilty. Unfortunately, in the cases of domestic violence accusations, the opposite is true. An example of this is that of a 20 year old Florida resident who made the bond that was set for him, only to be picked up the very next day without provocation. The acuser in this case simply told the court she was afraid. He had done nothing in terms of trying to contact her or see her, and was not without several witnesses the few short hours he was free. Something must be done to prevent those who would lie about being a victim of domestic violence from continuing to do so. If it is not, our prisons will be overrun with innocent men and our streets will be controlled by the women who sent them there.

They should pay attention to the accusers past claims of domestic violence with the pattern of break ups/divorce and how they scream it after the relationship has ended.

This is crazy and happening in my family right now.
There needs to be better equality in family law.
I understand the need for emergency safety, but later on there needs to be proof that there was actual violence and not a few innocent emails, like my case. The judge could not have seen truthful evidence in my case. The wife of a man who was my friend, was allowed to have her husband file for a TRO for her, because she wanted to punish him for being my friend. That is a travesty of justice! Buty & Curliano, a law firm in Oakland, CA, filed it against me! I cannot find legal representation! If you don't have enough money to hire an attorney, good luck! You are screwed! That law firm actually hit a quadriplegic man with a TRO! That law firm also represents Kaiser Permanente, and they allow their doctors to have them as a little freebie for all their legal, and not so legal needs! Buty and Curliano should be ashamed of themselves for perpetuating false TROs! I got 2.5 year TRO for writing a few emails to my doctor asking him if I had done anything wrong, and apologised for it! To allow a jealous wealthy doctor wife, to pervert the legal system is criminal! A law firm that allows it, is worse! They are spreading inequality, and hate! How they can get away with it, is a testament to undermining our entire system of justice. Please tell Buty & Curliano to stop their harmful, hateful, criminal behavior!
I'm living in domestic abuse and I was arrested. I was being chocked by my spouse and I tried to get my spouse to stop. My spouse had a bruise on the arm and so I was locked up. I asked the police officer, what was I suppose to do, just let me be strangled to death? The police offsider l officer said yes. Now everyday since, I'm hit and threatened. I'm so scared and it seems like no one cares. I'm on probation now and I'm unable to go back home. I was wrongly accused while my abuser walks free and keeps on tormenting me. Please, I beg you to help!
It's happening to me I'm a disabled vet and I can't afford this.
In support of the Fathers Rights Movement to help stop the criminalization of fathers by family courts. The idea of controlling and aggression appears to be only associated with the male in current family courts even when there is no evidence or evidence to the contrary. The female in these cases can berate, evade, attack (physically or verbally), and be overtly aggressive not to mention passive-aggressive without any consequences. As soon as the male attempts to get involved in joint decision making and maintaining awareness of happenings with their children they will almost inevitably be accused of being controlling or aggressive in some manner (criminalize) as a pretense to controlling the males involvement with their children. From my perspective this is the root issue in family courts that needs to be addressed via some form of a social justice campaign that reveals the inaccuracies and inconsistencies in this form of gender discrimination. The underlying negative stereotyping and resulting stigmas must be addressed to enable change, equal rights, and protections under the law.
Please be aware that even though the letter above refers to men being falsely accused, women are falsely accused as well. These false allegations need to be stopped. This is perjury and it is a crime and needs to be held accountable to the highest degree, not just given a slap on the wrist and ignored. These false allegations ruin innocent people's lives all because of a vindictive, lying and malicious ex who still wants control. If our courts truly represent justice, then let justice prevail in all aspects and on all judiciary levels, this includes judges who spend only a few minutes looking at a petition or who deny the defendant to appear by phone when in another state. Shame on our system.
