Stop False Allegations of Domestic Violence

31,977 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.

He is needed. The laws need to be changed. The amount of damage that is occurring is unbelievable. A man, if accused has NO rights. No recourse. His finances are wiped out, his freedom is taken away, his reputation distroyed. He stands to loose everything due to a vengeful woman's lies, with no recourse. This is America, why is this being allowed? Please .. do something to change this abusive law, and the unjust procedures that it produces.
Hi to people of heart and compassion and reason

All cases should reinvestigate

All judges lawyer attorney social worker police psych should be judged and trial for having destroy millions of family especially fathers
They should be a national trial and these lawmakers judge who keep these abuse system gully until proven innocent while it should be the opposite ..

How many families destroyed
How many children raised by mothers who alienated their children against their father who did nothing and are totally innocent

How many suicide men suicide due to these laws

How many homeless and the wife get all

America wake-up ..this injustice has to stop

Men male are innocent in most cases

Why always think the male are guilty and could do the terrible horrible stuff their wife / girls friends / female partners would accused them ..
Everyone reading this.... Please, call the Senate Judiciary Committee in Washington DC.... this is their JOB! (202) 224-5225 Tell them Americans would like their due process back! These false accusations are widespread and systemic because of our LAWS! Federal AND state laws need to change.... mainly with Protective Orders / Restraining Orders issued with NO TRIAL, NO DUE PROCESS, and NO burden of PROOF!... and they NEVER prosecute the false accusers!... NEVER!... and everyone knows it.

Please call the Senate Judiciary Committee at (202) 224-5225 (Washington DC) NOW! Protective Orders and Restraining Orders are in DIRECT violation of the US constitution... the right to a fair 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 in a court of law! This is a widespread and systemic violation of MILLIONS of American citizens most BASIC civil rights!

Our own government is CAUSING this! Federal AND state laws NEED to change immediately!

Call (202) 224-5225 Senate Judiciary Committee NOW, or the false accusations will only get worse. This issue is completely OBVIOUS, and its destroying our society, one family at a time.
This site has been up for a long time . Our politicians are failing us one again , by not bringing to the forefront injustices which are caused by the very same laws enacted as a political body. This issue needs and deserves attention as the live of women , men and children are turned to waste because no action has been taken. If a laws are hurting more than helping the should be revisited ,. In the case of domestic violence there are already laws which help victims. Yet our politician chose to sit idle while lives are crushed . What's driving the inaction now, are they afraid that the numbers false domestic violence cases that are false are more than what the laws intended to stop, Are they afraid of losing funding for prosecuting innocent people and not prosecuting those who will lie to gain advantage in a divorce or pay back . When laws give an advantage over one or another they are no longer laws that work for the benefit of society rather hurt those who really need the help. Why has the issue of false allegation and the lack of judicial relief not received attention is beyond me. Is it just a money game. It's really need to stop.
My son has been verbally accused of mental abuse by an unstable wife with pre and post partum depression and who has been secretly campaigning for months with comments about him "yelling at her" and fear. He has never and would never harm her and had been the primary caregiver of their newborn while she is treated and hospitalized with pre eclampsia, placed on zoloft. She has much sympathy because of pre existing mental issues and has now fabricated this story. Her constant need to be the center of attention and discredit others is alarming. She refuses counseling for depression and only agrees to marital counseling so he can see everything thats wrong with him. She feels she has no faults. Please stop this cycle for our gentle loving sons who are falsely accused.
It happens daily and ruins a man's life and needs to be stopped.
my false allegation story isn't particularly terrible. i was accused of harassment, the police were annoyed both that it was happening and that they were forced by procedure to charge me and bring the case to court. the judge was also annoyed that the accusation made it to court and declared me not guilty. my life was left mostly intact, but even the fact that i was in court for a harassment charge caused a few complications in my life.
These false allegations ruin lives
My boyfriend had an altercation with his son but started with me telling him " to quit being a *****" & in a quick second grabbed me under my jaw & released. NO PAIN, NO IMPEDENCE of breath! Grabbed & let go! About an hour later he & his son got into an argument that led to other instances happening & the law was called. When the deputies questioned me, I told them the truth of how everything led up to the law being called. The call was made by his son & for his son only. NO CALLS OR INFORMATION concerning me was included in the 9-1-1 call, but in the event of the law questioning me & me TELLING THE TRUTH &giving them the information of how it all started, the law took it upon themselves to arrest my boyfriend for family violence, causing pain & impeding breath. When I was questioned about him grabbing me, I was asked if I wanted to press charges & I said no. In the end of their "investigation" that night, I asked if they were taking my boyfriend to jail & they told me yes they were. I asked for what & I was told for putting his hands on me. Remember, the cops WERE NOT called on anything about ME, only on & for his son.
I had already gone to bed to which should have shown the "law" I was no where close to being "IN FEAR OF MY LIFE"!
I understand & believe that there is a need for laws concerning Domestic Violence but there should be levels of degree to when & how much has been done or incurred & if the accused is at the scene the level of degree should then be assessed & whether or not there should be an arrest made.
I don't BELIEVE OR THINK it should be left SOLELY up to the officers to make that call! I feel that is a violation of my RIGHTS as a UNITED STATES CITIZEN!
I am a grown woman, very capable of making my own decisions & I should be able to do so on my own accord!!!!
