Stop False Allegations of Domestic Violence

25,511 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.

A vindictive woman can exploit a system designed to protect innocent victims.
I was informed by a police officer that the county attorney does "coaching" for women who want to leave their husband. They are advised to "sucker-punch" their partner, pick a fight and all it takes is a mark on their body to have the husband arrested. In some cases this is even staged with the cops on standby. These women know very well how to play the system and such advise should never come from law enforcement. My bf went almost through this with his ex partner 5 years ago (he left before it got bad and lost almost everything he owned) and she is still stalking us now. She even contacted my work! But the police and county attorney do nothing against her illegal actions (harassment, stalking, liable, slander and so on) and tell us to just leave her alone.

Please STOP false allegations, research, investigate and prosecute if necessary.
I am a TRUE victim of domestic violence and it shames me to see the MAJORITY of women use this as a defense to gain custody of their children, assets or temporary possession of the family home. I support this petition as the women who "cry wolf" have no repercussions for falsifying their testimony. In fact, I've seen several women go on and maintain abuse to gain access to public funds all the while making a mockery of true abuse that exists. Stop the abuse!
.....and every day, domestic violence (by women) is glorified as amusement on TV (Jerry, Jerry, Jerry!) but we are supposed to understand that it has no impact on peoples behavior? Violent women are cheered on as heroes and the guys have to stand there dumb-witted. You ll never see them lash out:can you imagine the reactions then?

But don't let your kids play video-games, they may just take out their classmates with a real machine gun..............

Society has gone bonkers and the judicial system takes the lead.
The judicial system is corrupt and we all pay in
It's not just about innocent men but innocent women as well and the family in which it destroyed
