Stop False Allegations of Domestic Violence

21,211 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.

I know someone that all he did is touch his e's hand and ask to talk to her and they talked. Remind you this was in a public place. The next thing after looking at his record after 1 yrs he is flagged with offensive touch part of domestic violence. It's a shame that he found out why he hasn't gotten some jobs put in for. This is crazy. They need to make more of a definition of domestic violence because a lot if people (men and women) may fall victim to this. People are loosing rights because of over judging and lies.
Not right some people manipulate and get away with this and the innocent and victim are the one pushing by law not fair at all get the facts and evidence right things get plan to hurt the other side of relationship she was the cheater not the victim
This has got to stop. Innocent people have been sent to jail for this a close friend of mine's son just had this happen and he has done nothing. They shouldn't be able to get away with it. Now he may lose his kids and can't get away to come live with his family.
Hard to see such a wonderful, caring guy get shafted by a crazy, cheating wife. Children were even witnesses that nothing happened but he was arrested. This system is messed up.
there needs to be more of an investigation between the two, who has the marks an bruises, who has the proof!!
