Stop False Allegations of Domestic Violence

Help us stop false allegations of domestic violence. Keep our children from hurting because of lies

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.

Most people would never believe this until they had to live it. I knew it happened, still yet... ended up in the same position. As a former police officer and former corrections officer I knew all too well how things can happen. I just didn't realize how ridiculous Ohio is with this. I have lived this hell for the past 8 months. Unlike some others on here, mine just got done and I pray my life returns to normal soon. Here is where the misconceptions come into play- most everyone thinks that the local government has the safety and concern for domestic violence victims at heart, and to an extent they do. But when there is proof that the person accused and/or arrested didn't do it, or no evidence to prove without a reasonable doubt that they did commit the crime... they still won't drop it. Domestic Violence is not as much a crime as it is a money maker for the city/county etc... you were charged in. The city or county is able to show their conviction rate is high, pushing that they have made the community safer. This brings in grants by itself. The biggest benefit for them though, is all of the state and federal grant money that is available for both arrests and then again for prosecutions of domestic violence. Look up your state. See how much grant money and to who they give the grant money, for the arrest and also the prosecution of DV. Then search federal grants to see how much is available. With mine, I faced 2 charges of DV. Between the local police dept, and the county prosecutors office- they stood to lose almost $40,000 -yes, almost $40k!!!! Talk about criminal activity! Now think about why you, I or the next man (or woman) are arrested. It's not about politics, it's not about the crime that much itself. But once 911 has been called, you just invited them in. The cops arrested me after being at my house around 15-20 min. I was the one with marks all over. I had to beg them to take pics of my injuries. I didn't do anything besides participate in arguing...They didn't care. I was outside waiting for them.... calm, cool and collected. But what they saw was a guy wearing a cutoff shirt with big arms and tattoos. Then wrote in the criminal complaint that I was wearing a "wife beater"... cliche right?! That was the deciding factor to me being the latest moneymaker!

Avoid DV all together! Keep from losing your parental rights! Keep Custody of your beloved children. Protect yourself from the manic, bipolar, schizophrenic ex. Men need to read the book "House of Straw" a book for men on separation and divorce. www.kennedybell.net

https://www.msn.com/en-us/news/politics/analysis-gop-squirms-as-trump-veers-off-script-with-abuse-remarks/ar-BBIXrOB?li=BBmkt5R&ocid=spartandhp Not even our PRESIDENT can stop this!! President Trump is EXACTLY RIGHT!!.... but the Democrats will demonize him, for even mentioning that we have a problem with false accusations and NO DUE PROCESS!! This is EXACTLY what this petition is talking about!! BRING BACK DUE PROCESS, and THE PRESUMPTION of INNOCENCE!!! This is absolutely destroying our society. Men's live are being destroyed all over America, with NOTHING but a false accusation!! Wake up, Congress... before you completely destroy our society. PLEASE? This problem is absolutely ENORMOUS, its SYSTEMIC, and largely hidden... Protective Orders and Restraining Orders are at the CENTER of this problem, because they allow the man to be kicked out his OWN home, with NO trial or due process whatsoever... literally guilty, until you can somehow prove yourself innocent. There is NO defense for a false accusation... NONE!! If you are accused, and the woman sticks to her story, YOU ARE GUILTY!! Yes!... it IS that simple!! I have lived it, and I continue to see it every single day! Please STOP this madness!

It’s not just men who are victimized by a false DV charge. It happens to women as well. This injustice occurred June 21, 2011. I thank God the Judge said, no evidence of DV, but I still order you out of your home. Your petition needs to be gender neutral so both men and women can sign it. Believe me...I am sorry that you have been falsely accused. God in His mercy removed the DV for me. But I still lost my child and home.
