Stop False Allegations of Domestic Violence

34,353 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.

Men do it to women,cps workers do it to grandparents,in their own homes. It's tragic,the physical and emotional toil this takes on families.
Judges and prosecutors need to be educated on how easy it is to create false emails and false entries on social media sites. The laws must be clear that the accuser must bear the burden of proof of their validity and the accused must not need to prove his or her innocence.
Literally, I called 911 on my girlfriend twice in the same night, the first time she had knocked out a window, and when trying to force herself into my home, somehow managed to bust my forehead open, this i didn't realize until until the police asked me how did it happen. About 3an she called me and asked me to pick her up that she was sorry, etc..I did, i got out of bed and picked her up on a street corner, when we got back to the residence, i went back to bed, she proceeded in what all I cant remember, but was making a lot of noise, i repeatedly asked her to cease and jsut come to bed, she then showered and began blow drying her hair at 4 am. I finally got up and unplugged the hairdryer, she went into the kitchen and grabbed a skillet and started hitting me with it, I ended up going out the front door in my underwear to escape her. I had a spare key outside, so I was able to gain entry back into my house and called 9111 again.. She began tearing up my home , knocking over the computer, throwing potted plants, knocking the cable box and blue-ray player to the floor, by this time I had started recording her with my cell phone, at some point iI realized my billfold was missing. She ws throwing things all over my bedroom when the officers arrived, when they announced themselves, she ran to the front room balling telling them I was beating her. This is all captured on video, she raving, telling the officers I had punched her in the face at least 50 times..Finally I was able to tell the officers this was my second call of the evening, my head was again busted open from being struck with a skillet, numerous cuts to my arms from waning off blows from the skillet... They did not take her to jail, at some ;point i relinquished, if she would just go to bed I would accept that. I was cleaning up the mess she had made, it was quite a chore, I was in the laundry room, by this time its somewhere between 5-6 am. An officer comes to the laundry room and asks me to come to the station, they want to ask me some questions, they informed me their supervisor had told them to come back an arrest her based on the first incident. I went to the station with the officers, sat in an interrogation rooms for several hours, didn't speak to a person, was asked no question, I had on my phone quite a bit of footage of her throwing things, breaking things, her running to the officers telling them i was beating her....many other things as well. Finally an officer came into the room and told me that I would be going to jail for domestic battery. I asked to show him the video evidence i had, he told me to show it to the judge. I obtained the police reports of the incidents of the night, there was no mention of the skillet being used as a weapon against me, apparently when she had me backed into a corner with the skillet, when i tried to get past, i must have caused a red mark or something, they said she had a mark on her face.. Me i had my head busted two different times,
I have seen many victims of this type. Our justice system should not just take whatever the accuser said without any questioning.
I had an x make bogus claims against me because she was mad i was seeing another woman..I asked for a polygraph test and evrything but got denide due process of law until i finally had a nervous break down..messed my life up
Guilty, until proven innocent. Guilty, until proven innocent. Guilty, until proven innocent. Guilty, until proven innocent. Guilty, until proven innocent. Guilty, until proven innocent. Guilty, until proven innocent. Guilty, until proven innocent. You can't prove a negative.

Literally, the OPPOSITE, of how our criminal justice system is supposed to operate!

Thank you Congress!

This petition is the "tip of the iceberg"... there are MILLIONS of falsely accused in America... most of them are in jail, or have committed suicide.

Unbelievably sickening!... ALL caused by US Congress! Literally, guilty, until proven innocent... its the LAW!
My brother is being falsely accused by a clinically diagnoses mentally sick woman and none of the authorities believe him! Its ruining his life when all he did was love this woman and try to help her! It breaks my heart to see him go through this and there is nothing we can do... his attorney keeps saying to be patient, but its hard when she has taken over everything and has even admitted it that it never happened! Its just so sad...
