Stop False Allegations of Domestic Violence

22,041 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.

It's time we had a survey done of all convicted abusers who feel they were innocent and would gladly take a lie detector test along with the accuser. Especially where liar pays and if so, trade places.
False allegations over the past 51/2 years has totally devastated a father of twins. To date, all rights to his children have been suspended and he has not seen them in over a year. The mother of the twins has continuously made false allegations against the father and, needless to say, has cost him thousands of dollars to prove her wrong. All false accusations have been proven unfounded, including the Department of Social Services, a forensic psychologist, and the hospital where the mother took this little girl to have her examined. The father has never been arrested, charged or found guilty of any of the false allegations the mother has made against him. This has got to stop and we need your help in finding and giving justice to the innocent victims. This has been devastating to this family and put a financial burden on them you would not believe. The accuser has to be brought to justice for all concerned. They need to be fined, made to pay all attorney fees and court costs, and do time in jail. I can think of no other way to stop this madness being inflicted upon innocent people. Please, help all of us find a solution to end this. My cell phone number is 540-455-9388, please leave me a message as to a good time to return your call in the event I'm unable to asnswer. My home address is 721 Scott Drive, Fredericksburg, VA 22405. Please use my new email in the event you would like to further correspond with me. Thank you for your time and all of the efforts you can put forth to help the innocent get justice.

I live with a woman roommate / partner in business .
I became friends with another woman who had 100"s of friends in common on Facebook ! ( warning)
The friendship went straight to obsession
I was always clear that I was NOT Interested in a relationship .
I got VM and texts. 2nd warning.
When my roommate went out of town.
She wanted to stay over.
I said no.
My roommate even got nutty texts
from her. ( warning 3)
And the next day (a Sunday) the Weho sheriffs came to my home all 6 of them and plucked me from society ! Of course I had to do the perp walk in front of my neighbors !
She had filed a restraining order along with a fictional detailed story. BTW -She fancies herself a writer) her x husband had to file a restraining order on her! ( 4th warning)
I couldn't speak until I was in court on tue .
My job and my dog were just left there.
My bail was set at $50k and I wasn't going to drop 10% for no reason.
(A righteous man has nothing to fear) ?
It was a women judge and DA.
But I was released on my Owen recog , I think cus I work.i did not cohabit
And her crazy story convoluted story.
I still have a court date.
Mean time I feel I have to account for whereabouts
Because ,what protects me from her saying I've broke the restraining order ?
I have to get a judge to file one on her to protect myself .
I understand they have to look into these claims.
But there should be some kind of vetting process.
Even some kind of house arrest until court .
As soon as crazy peaks it head out just get out!
There is waaaaay to much power in the wrong hands!!!
My son is going through this
I've been going through a divorce now for 2 years was married for five years have two children a girl and a boy.I knew it was bad for the last three years in the marriage but I stayed for the kids I want the kids to have a family and I try to work it out.I put up with mental emotional abuse verbal abuse from her I tried to get her to go to counseling she refused.I believe that she had mental issues she told me that she was sexually abused as a young child and abandoned by their father at a young age.after telling her one night that we needed counseling or we were going to get a divorce she woke up the following morning antagonizing me but I totally ignored her reading articles out of my cell phone.this further infuriated her she came into the room demanding that I pay bills and I put my phone down to grab the bills she grabbed my phone and tries to destroy it.after putting up with her abuse for so long I decided to make a stand and not let her destroy my phone.and I try to get my phone from her it was early morning hours so we were not wearing shoes stops on my foot and breaks my toe so I grab my phone from her and pull it out of your hand she then says I hurt her hand she calls the police.the police asked if you're going to press charges on each other and I look at her and says well are you going to put the kids in we didn't file charges on each other but the next day I get served a restraining order and get kicked out of my house, I say my house because I bought the house with money borrowed from my family even though we were married she never worked more than a year that we were together.two years later all my belongings are sold or stolen or destroyed she tried to erase everything of me and now is using the kids as pawns in our divorce.what breaks my heart is that anyone who's ever met me and my kids know we have an excellent relationship but yet she told the court that the kids are afraid of me and she's actually planted ideas in the kids heads to tell the court counselors that they are afraid of me because of that restraining order this yes full custody and sole legal custody of the kids and has moved away 150 miles from me.with the help of this broken legal system she was able to set me up and take away my kids get rid of all my personal belongings and we erase me from the kids lives which is a travesty and in justice.I humbly ask that these hair trigger domestic violence laws be reviewed and revise, the court systems must dig deeper to find the truth domestic violence laws should be the protection of all.
My wife has verbally, mentally, emotionally, and physically abused me for six years. I stayed for the kids, and always hid the abuse from the public the best I could. I wanted my kids, Tommy and Jill to have their mother in their lives, and do everything to keep our family together. After moving to NY, her bipolar and anxiety mess have stopped working, and she has been abusing them. Her manic fits of rage gave me a severely fractured finger. Last week, she called for an emergency evacuation while I was at work, and I have no idea where her or the kids are, or when I will see them again. She's trying everything in her power to hurt me, and she's using our two angels as pawns in her sick game. How could the police be required by law to hide the location of my children based upon mere accusations from an emotionally unstable, abusive drug addict?
I was arrested today because my boyfriend and I had an argument. After he walked out of the door I pushed the nearly closed door shut, enough to make a slight bang. He then walked back up a couple of steps to tell me that he was calling the police because I had almost made him fall down the stairs, which I knew was impossible, especially because he was away from the door and there was no weight on it, nor any sounds that would have indicated he had almost fell, which was never my intentions in the first place, but because he told the police that I pushed him, they arrested me for domestic violence. Before this he threatened to call the police on me anytime I got upset at him for not helping out around the house or for him swearing and calling me names in front of our child. I know he needs help and we are seeing a counselor. Our last appointment we had he agreed to stop threatening to call the police on me when I hadn't been doing anything to him. I feel that he's trying to seek ways to gain control of the situation and exact revenge on me. My biggest error is becoming emotionally upset when he is being cruel to me, but I didn't call the police on him. The only time I did was when he gave me a concussion and had physically injured me. I can't believe that police have the right to arrest someone who hasn't done another harm. Serious changes need to be made to these laws to protect those who the police are suppose to protect. It shouldn't be that easy for a citizen to turn these laws into a game.
Publicity/thrill seekers who claim domestic violence/abuse when it is a false claim should face legal and financial repercussions How can a person expose their children to the public humiliation of having a parent accused of this, based only on a "verbal" charge - no evidence at all? This subject has become such a popular cause that celebrities, media groups, etc. jump on it with no concern as to the truth. What recourse does a man have when falsely accused of mistreating his wife? When going to his child's school activities is painful and humiliating but staying away makes him seem uncaring? When he loses his job because of the publicity, but is faced with contempt of court for non-payment of child support? Why is thee no penalty for ruining a person's life just to get attention?
My whole life has been messed over by a false accusations of domestic violence. I was in my early 40's, with no priors arrest, and worked for the Department of Homeland Security at the time.
The mother of my children wanted shelter, government assistance, and a way out of the relationship.
With no job, she saw this out of a relationship that for one reason or another, she really didn't want to be in. At the time, when jailed, l didn't have money to meet bail. So I took a plea out of a justice system that was just stringing me a long. The plea was one of the worst mistake that I ever made in my life. I now have a record that not a reflection of me ,my personality, or anything that I truly believe in.
It is sad that there are women out there who are being abused and actually need shelter and government assistance who have there spots taken by women who fabricate stories of abuse for the purpose of obtaining housing,money,and an abundance of government assistance and resources and worst of all use there children as pawns and tools for revenge! I am a man that's had my son taken from me by his homeless mother who used false claims of domestic violence has her living in a shelter with our 6yr old son who was living with me sleeping in his own bed.even with no proof or credible witnesses the judge denied me joint custody and only allows me every other weekend after not seeing or speaking to my son in 5 months.ive never been arrested or even questioned for domestic violence.mean while the mom gets housing ,cash, job ,assistance ,and my kid is in counseling behind false accusations .if that's not mental abuse I don't know what is.any judge doing there job a little could see the inconsistency it this woman stories.the system is broke and doesn't work for men!
Im a witness to a girl breaking into her boyfriends window and biting him repeatedly. I told tge boy to call the police. The police arrested both of them. The boy was in jail & plead guilty to get out of jail (due from fear of jail). Eeeeeeeeergh!
I"m going through a messy divorce in CA. I stop giving my wife cash money during our divorce and instead paid for everything with my ATM card to have records of finacial support. She was ****ed off that I was no longer giving her cash money. She was coached to place a TRO on me by filling a false dv report with no merrit. She obtained the TRO through the courts with several false dv allegations. I was never arrested for the dv allegations. The sad part about ex wife was coached by her place this TRO on me right befor our spousal/ child support and visitation court hearing. Now I have lost tempory parental rights, pay more spousal and child support untill my TRO hearing. This is an unjustice and abuse of the legal system...the best part of this situation.....Im in law enforcement and now I might lose everything I worked hard for in my life because I decided to file and pay to divorce this women......LOVE HAS NO FURRY LIKE A WOMENS SCORN......
My brother had a dispute with his soon to be x wife and she tried to hit his hand and he pushed her aside with reasonable force to keep her from hitting him and now he is up for Domestic Violence charge. This is wrong, she is bigger than him and has been the bully all their years of marriage. She works for the state of MI and is now living at a Shelter for Domestic Violence victims. She is taking away from people that really need it. They have been separated for 2 months and he has made no effort to see her or be near her, yet she drives by his house all the time to intimidate him. She even tried to get her 19 year old daughter to place a PPO on him so that she could live at the shelter with her. I realize that Domestic Violence is wrong; but, we have to realize that people should be innocent till proven guilty and these laws are not set up this way. Please help us change this, Prosecutors should do their research before slapping these charges on innocent people.
