Stop False Allegations of Domestic Violence

23,015 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 am Sarah Peterson, the ex-wife in this article. I have just learned of this article due to the fact my ex-husband is filing for custody change in favor of him. I want to explain that he does not have our children in his best interest in fact has and is doing everything to get out of paying child support (in which he is currently behind on by over 25,000) he stated in a text message to me that he will NEVER pay child support.
He was abusive in our marriage of 11yrs. & he now is being abusive to our 16yr. old daughter who refuses to spend anytime with him and is scared and stressed and has stated "I will NEVER live with him, I want to testify"
He has a heavy influence on our boys, 11 & 13 to be against women, and to disrespect the judge, the order and law.
Right now he is re-opening the case (aka the custody change motion) because anytime our "case" is opened, child support enforcement stops action against him..
He was about to loose his drivers license until he took action to re-open case.. he did the same thing when he appealed our Judge Mahler's order.
He has also been trying to get my best friend/boyfriend arrested and out of my life since he has told our children that he will get back together with me and that mom was wrong to divorce dad and that she will never marry anyone else. He was scolded by judge Mahler in our case when he openly told our children all of our adult problems and more, putting them in the middle and informing them of too much adult information, which has put a strain on them.
I decided to divorce him because the abuse was getting worse and in front of our children.. with no hope for him, them or myself for any of it to get better. As well as the police never arrested or did anything to help. I left with the clothes on my back and nowhere to go, Anna Marries (a shelter for women in a domestic abuse) was full the day I left.
The police have continued to "side" with him due to his "charm and manipulation". The first time I had called 911 back in 2010, due to his abuse to me, the officer had told me to never call 911 unless it's an emergency after talking with Adam (my ex), who is very manipulative. The officer then apologized a few calls/incidences to 911 later to me for ever telling me that.
After much research,studying and living with Adam, he has all of the characteristics of a sociopath.
There is SO much more that I haven't even touched in this entire situation. Our story needs to be heard. My best friend ha
Congress is doing NOTHING to stop Falsely accused People. Victims have up to 1 year to report which gives them plenty to make up lies. They should be held accountable for their lies. People have lost their jobs, careers etc.. This is wrong. Domestic Violence Offices try to get as many victims as they can to look good. Evidence should be proved or investigated the same day as 911 is called. So sad!!
How much clearer can the BIAS be than this? and How much wider can the door open for abuse then this?
This is from the last page of my NJ Restraining order exactly as it appears in Bold type , pay close attention to the second sentence, "ALL LAW ENFORCEMENT OFFICERS WILL SERVE AND FULLY ENFORCE THIS ORDER. THE PLAINTIFF SHALL NOT BE ARRESTED FOR VIOLATION OF THIS RESTRAINING ORDER" Now why is that last sentence there? How much more BIAS could this RO be? if your in fear, why do you need that clause? why isn't the plaintiff subject to being arrested? why aren't RO's Bilateral? My ex Lied to get her RO, once she received it and I was living on the street , I have been repeatedly threatened or blackmailed, that is I sign everything over to her in divorce settlement, she will remove it. As soon as she got possession of our home she KILLED our dog, then moved in with her boyfriend, she then looted $120,000.00 worth of property from our home with her boyfriend, when I brought this to the judges attention , he asked me how I knew she moved out, I said I had gotten my electric, gas and water bills and they were all ZERO, he then said Mr B. how would you like to go to jail for stalking?,

All it takes is someone who is angry with another person to call a false report on someone and their life is forever changed...Its not right and florida needs to change the way they handle these cases. Taking someone to jail just because you were called out to a call is ludicrous. Pasco county florida is a disgruntled bunch of people who are not professional at what they do. Actually incompitence is a kind word for those cops.
