Stop False Allegations of Domestic Violence

21,615 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.

This needs attention, there has to be consequences for making false allegations.
I was removed from my home after being beat several times by my wife and I finally called the police. She told me I'll tell them you hit me. And she did. I was taken to jail. We have kids and my 8yo daughter heard the entire thing. Divorced now and it's a complete nightmare trying to deal with her and seeing my kids. She's continuing the behavior because it worked for her.
I am severely paying for this DV charge even though I was not found guilty I have a hard time getting my job just because of a malicious bipolar woman that chose to make my life a living hell. A scam artist and she herself is actually charged and found guilty of dv and simple assault in the past. The justice system should atleast check their history including their aliases and charge them for slander!!
Normally this sort of thing would catch my eye. And i wiuld think "those poor saops are trting to get out of their classes" or whatever the punishment was for beating their wife.
But not today

My name is Jeffrey Wayne Howard recently I was in the newspaper in Monterey County as a high-profile domestic violence suspect. You see my live in girlfriend and I were fighting a routine thing. Here's the history we live together for a year or so several months ago we broke up or I broke up. I told her she had to move she refused to leave. I should have most of you out there with think when they read something like this that it was just a crock another domestic violence guy trying to get out of this. Well not so. She refused to leave I even had her served and recorded the service. But when it came time in the date came up that she was supposed to leave she cried and whined. Stating that she had nowhere to go except a woman shelter I got soft and didn't have enforced big mistake. A few days later her son shows up on my doorstep at 2 o'clock in the morning with a baby no jacket no shoes nothing. You got it he also needs a place to stay. Naturally I say will come inside let's talk about it. to make a long story short now there's three of them in my house and none of them will leave. And she has said several times she was going to have me thrown in jail for this and that. I blew it off leaving her just to be mad and ridiculous. Well she did she called the cops and told me I was beating her up whatever she said I heard about it on the news. What she said was I was chasing her around the house with a shotgun telling her I was going to kill her. Now I'm an ex felon in the state of California of course it was a long time ago more than 12 years. Nevertheless a felon in possession of a handgun any gun for that matter is an automatic 5 years now add to that another five years for discharging the weapon oh and wait we're not done yet because I have a prison prior we're going to add another year in addition. So that's quickly adding up to about 11 years and all that in this state because its violence is done at at and with all those points. I'll be in prison at level 4.
Well I'm 51 years old I had hepatitis C since I was 18 and didn't know it now its psoriasis of the liver and very shortly going to be. First stage cancer. Sorry there's a typo that's cirrhosis of the liver. So anyway the sheriff comes the SWAT team comes everybody and their sister and brother never comes this 30 cops at my house trying to negotiate with me and I'm not even there and I haven't been there all night.
So they send a sweaty man and realize I'm not there then I go to my mothers house and they send us what you mean there and realize I'm not there. Anyways it's the whole big old deal and this never even happened its all debauchery. Clouded by what I now know it is a very sick majorly bipolar woman. And believe it or not even as I write this this still in my house and living there.

I was falsely accused of DV. I helped her obtain her immigration papers and 3 months after she received them she called the police over a simple argument. I had scratches, a busted lip , bight marks on my fingers and a swollen hand cause she thru a perfume bottle at me everything was visible officers took pictures of my injuries asked me if i wanted to press charges and still took me. She had no physical injures i was just holding her hand as self deference to prevent her from hitting me. Not only that she also put a temporary. TPO on me. I feel like wat she did was a fraud cause since she only recieved a 2 year temporary resident permit if i do get charged for DV she would recieve a permanent residency. I try to contact the immigration office and the only thing they told me was that the best thing i cold do was to annul my marriage or get a divorce and go on with my life. Sad to say but Im extremely disappointed with my country and their justice system.
