Stop False Allegations of Domestic Violence

25,911 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 was arrested not more than 7 days ago under false allegations since I wanted no further contact with my accuser! Held for 8 hours before Judge heard case and assigned Supervised ROR. It was another 9 hours before I was able to walk out. Now and until the case is closed; I am unable to leave the county for work or otherwise without prior approval from the judge, I am unable to move (within the county) without prior approval from the judge, I am unable to consume nor possess alcohol, I must check in weekly with the courts. A defense attorney has cost me $1,500 thus far, but potentially can total out at over $7,000. Advise received sickens me. Pleading Not Guilty will most certainly result in more than 1 year of these continued restrictions. An unbelievable system of Guilty until proven Innocent. Please help!
Lives are being ruined by manipulators! Sadly the judicial system is being used to assist these liars and the way the laws are set up actually incourages this behavior. Civil rights and Constitutional rights are constantly being violated. This has to stop!!
So many illegal women are using this law to become legal and they're putting good men behind bars. Shame on the U.S., for allowing this to get out of hand!
People who false report should be prosecuted to the fullest extent of the law! My aunt has false reported my mother for abuse of me, my aunt for abuse of my cousin, my other aunt for abuse of her 2 kids, me for abuse of my daughter & numerous neighbors. She uses it as a way to get revenge upon people & recently told her own daughter if she was next! It's sick & wrong & there is a history of proof that she does this yet nobody does anything about it! She's free to wreck any life she wants! Her & people like her need to be prosecuted for using the system to get revenge! Pass this law!!!

Ok well I just learned that my wife has a warrant out for my arrest for domestic violence. However, I never put hands on her. What can I do?
This situation is also running my life.. My husband tossed a very heavy duty cell phone at me and it hit just right on my lip and split it causing stitches.. I told him run I already knew his this would go.. They made me take photos no matter how many times I said no.. Now 2 months later hubby facing two felony dv charges looking at prison time when ask I needed was an ambulance to get stitches... They have taken away my constitutional right to make my own decision.. He has to serve time for me having a few drinks and a lousy catcher? This is causing way more problems anxiety stress money depletion and anger than anything else my husband and I have been through... They are relentless.. This is no longer a country of democracy.. It is money and power driven through and through so for anyone needing an ambulance caused by an accident... Don't... Bleed out, stitch yourself, anything but that as they will ruin you'd and your loved ones lives.
