Stop False Allegations of Domestic Violence

30,903 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.

Everyone please contact the Senate Judiciary Committee at (202) 224-5225 Ask them why we are kicking completely innocent people out of their own homes with NO TRIAL, NO DUE PROCESS, and NOTHING but an accusation!.... AND, if the accuser is lying under oath, they are GUARANTEED not to be prosecuted! That is no exaggeration... 2-3 million restraining / protective orders issued EVERY year in America.... NEVER a prosecution for LYING to get one.... NEVER! Even when they admit they lied under oath, the prosecutors guarantee to not prosecute them!

This is not a gender issue..... Its "taking court action against someone, with NO TRIAL, NO DUE PROCESS, and NO BURDEN of PROOF!

Please contact the Senate Judiciary Committee at (202) 224-5225, and tell them Americans would like their DUE PROCESS back!

This is in DIRECT violation of the US constitution... the right to a trial, the right to due process, the right to face your accuser in a court of law, and the right to be presumed innocent until proven guilty of a crime, in a fair court of law.

Contact the Senate Judiciary Committee NOW, or the false accusations will continue...

I am a women, in my situation I was falsely accused of domestic violence, almost lost my son in the process, more needs to be done to ensure innocent men and women are kept safe. One thing I have learned is domestic violence does not discriminate, innocent peoples lives are destroyed everyday with these false accusations; abusers use police, as well as, paper trails to their advantage. This should not have been my story, I hope to prevent this from happening to others.
I was accused of domestic violence and sent to prison for it. There was never a police report .the violence in the relationship was from this individual, but because I have a prison record THAT DOES NOT HAVE VIOLENCE IN IT i was automatically guilty. . My life was taken away, every part of me was distroyed ......I WAS MURDERED ALIVE! !!!!!!!!!! PEOPLE WHO MISS USE THE SYSTEM SHOULD BE CHARGED WITH MURDER. There are a lot of us who have been murdered alive, beaten, abused. It goes on. We have to stand up together. We can make a difference we the people CAN MAKE A DIFFERENCE. There are 30.000 signitures we can be heard .let us make a change .Facebook me Michael Kirk or e-mail me
Men are being put behind bar innocently because many women are abusing the law as mean to get revenge on men for wanting to depart a bad relationship. Because of false allegatiins, Kids are being used as a weapon and kids are being destroyed in this society by these women who uses false allegations to achieve evilness.
My girlfriend has a history of alcohol abuse, drinking and driving, and has beat the crap out of me quiet a few times. One night while drunk she decides she hates me and wants me to leave, calls the cops and says I slapped her and choked her. I get taken away for something I didn't do, the cops could tell what really happened but we're concerned about breaking the law by NOT reacting to what they knew was a lie. They took pictures showing no bruises or redness. These laws are meant to protect people from being hurt, not abused by malicious and manipulative behavior. Thank you
Family law is a joke. Kangaroo court.
