Stop False Allegations of Domestic Violence

27,133 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.

False accusations of domestic violence were pressed on me because this woman " rebecca" feared I would turn her and her landlord in for welfare fraud!...when I was bailed out ..I did! ..may GOD have no mercy on her!
To often woman use this as means to gain custody and erase a parent from the kids life. These woman can ruin a mans reputation, job, and life just because they don't want to share parenting time. They use the system as a sword trivalizing true dv victims. I read that more that 73% woman claim emotional and verbal abuse when they divorce. What does that mean? Every little argument, words she doesn't like, yelling match is now called abuse. My bf has not seen his kids in 4 years and he is not even guilty. Go NJ family Court; cash for kids and rewards false accusers. Highly recommend at first of sign problems get at least a visitation order; her words will lies. Divorce can be nasty! ! Family courts have too much control over personal life at the expense of the defendant.
Domestic violence for immigrants to obtain green card is seriously where my wife self inflicted her own wounds and police and the courts allowed perjury to convict an innocent man in Nacogdoches, Texas where race is a great factor. I was assaulted and abused my her and I was not allowed to file a complaint against her. I was divorcing my wife about 40 days after her arrival because I could not touch her when she knew this the fraudulent domestic violence claims started and everything else. I divorced her not she me because she was here for only a green card.
I am a Vietnam veteran and we get treated like dirt after fighting for a country that need to protect us tht we may have the justice we deserve in America!!
I was falsely arrested due to a lie that a guy told to officers c m Eubanks and approving officer j m tegeler. The guy punched himself in the face and held me at gunpoint in my own home for 3 hours. The officers did not speak with me and wrote a one sentence report to get a warrant for my arrest. The guy who lie refused medical treatment where it would be quite obvious he hit himself in the face. The guy also had a communicating threat to his former employer at the time of this false accusations. These officers are enabling domestic violence and the lawyers do not want to sue police officers that bring them business. The guy has been arrested 3 times for domestic violence since making the false accusation against me. A current charge is assault by pointing a gun. This guy would be in jail now if the officers had done their job and not have been negligent. I have been suffering from PTSD since this has occurred. Someone should do something about Charlotte Police and their false arrests for domestic violence. When I was in jail an officer made a joke and accused me of being like the football players. Based on my size and his size there is hardly a chance it would be possible. I barely managed to keep my life and talk the guy into leaving my apartment. This is unacceptable police work.
Lady Justice needs to remove that blindfold.. I understand that victims of "actual" assault need to be protected; however, victims of false allegations must have EQUAL protection under the law as well. Law enforcement personnel should not automatically assume guilt. These very serious charges can and do ruin the lives of innocent people. The bottom line is: Sometimes (because they know law leans heavily toward their side) the accuser is lying!!
I am going through this hell right now. Im an upright citizen who has never been in trouble...ever. In a legal maneuver, most likely advised by her lawyer to gain an upper hand in child custody, my wife made 5 specific lies against me in a protective order. She didnt call cops..or go to a hospital or a police station... She went to a lawyer then to pick up my daughter from school at 10am. The next day she got a protective order based on nothing more than lies. The very next day she filed for divorce. In between she blocked my entire side of the family from any and all.communication with her or our child. She called them all and when she didnt get the answer she wanted to hear, blocked their individual phone numbers from dialing in. Then she turned off my phone. Despite being from a wealthy family that sends her as much as she adks for, she claimed poverty and took half my monthly income in the temp order. Now I can barely pay my lawyers....what country is this? Where are my rights? The worst part? She is abusive to me and ive stopped her from hitting our child. She is mentally ill and nit receiving treatnent. Yet I sit here waiting for the call my child has been hospitalized because she took out her uncontrollable anger on the kid instead of me...because I'm not there to protect her. This system is broken, corrupt and cannot remain as it is. These laws infringe on my natural rights and are unconstitutional in their basic premise of assumption of guilt. Fix this America!!!!
It's wrong
This injustice has to end, a father who lost custody in family court over false allegations of Domestic Violence.
