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.

In state of Minnesota, the supreme court made a change in a good way. Usally an domestic or past OFP/HARASSMENT Order you can go way back. So now it os relevent to show a person can use that.

The nature of this problem being what it is I understand that a lot of the commentary is necessarily personally biographical in nature. And this is not intended to take anything away from that, I know and share your pain, but what I would like to see is more hard statistical data on this problem. Do states track the number of DVRO's they issue? And how long they last, and what percentage of the men are arrested, and or prosecuted as a result? I read once that 100's of men commit suicide annually after having DVRO's filed against them. We can all tell our stories, and they will to a man be sad but until hard data is collected that will irrefutably show the trends of related to this issue sadly I don't see much being done here. Does anyone know a reporter who works at a high profile publication like the Times, or Vanity Fair? They have research departments that are professionals at sourcing data. You get a named reporter to do an expose with hard facts, from there you take a run at T.V. shows like PBS, Frontline, 60 Minutes, THEN with public sentiment at your back you go to elected officials. I'm sorry to say this but what this movement doesn't need are anymore sad stories, what we need is a marketing plan, and a PR firm. There have to be a lot of people impacted by this, and within that group there must be second, and third people removed who know people. This group needs to leverage those connections to tell the story. A story which I'm sorry to say is too little in the public consciousness at the present time. There is a time and a place for personal accounts, and I will suggest that a therapists office is great for that. If you haven't been you should go, now. But from those ranks we need warriors who want to fight this, people who can put their personal pain aside and say "Yes, I hurt, but I'm able and willing to fight" and then to stay in the fight once it's begun. That's a petition I'd sign, and it's a battle I'm ready to fight.

https://www.msn.com/en-us/tv/celebrity/heather-locklear-pleads-not-guilty-to-battery-of-deputies/ar-AAvOOIj?ocid=spartandhp Every day innocent men are being falsely accused of domestic violence, kicked out of their own homes, and even put in jail, over nothing but a false accusation. Yet, if you're a female, a celebrity, or both.... you can commit domestic violence on your boyfriend, then physically attack the deputies that respond, threaten to kill the deputies (both Felony charges), but only get charged with small misdemeanors, plead not guilty, and most likely get probation. She hasn't spent a day in jail. Not one. She was immediately bonded out. Any man, would never have gotten bond after attacking two deputies and threatening to kill them. He'd be going to prison, for a long time. America has an obvious double standard. Men = criminals Women = Victims https://www.msn.com/en-us/tv/celebrity/heather-locklear-pleads-not-guilty-to-battery-of-deputies/ar-AAvOOIj?ocid=spartandhp

Call the Senate Judiciary Committee in Washington, DC (202) 224-5225 Ask for Senator Chuck Grassley or Evelyn Fortier. Tell them to STOP the "ex-parte", non-constitutional orders. They are causing an epidemic of false accusations, and the accused is assumed GUILTY, with NOTHING but an accusation. This problem is HUGE, but has largely been "hidden", because the accused is LITERALLY assumed guilty, and once the order is served, its pretty much over and done with. They give you a court date that is made to "look" like a trial, but you were ALREADY ASSUMED guilty, that's why you're ALREADY out of the HOUSE! So see? Its already done! Why would a judge say "no, I think its better if he goes back"? It is LITERALLY GUILTY, unless you can somehow disprove a negative, when usually the Judge won't even allow you to speak! Its what some would call a "rubber stamping process". These orders are in DIRECT violation of the US Constitution in many ways... the right to a trial (the "trial" is not a trial at all, you're not even allowed to speak). The right to due process? The accused is LITERALLY kicked out of their OWN house, immediately, without even being able to speak... simply because he was accused. If it is later found out, that the accuser lied, the accuser is GUARANTEED, to not be prosecuted. That's why they falsely accuse so often... because they know there is no risk. Even if they get caught lying under oath, they are NEVER prosecuted... yes, never. We live in a very adversarial society (unfortunately ), and our government keeps giving us "tools" to manipulate, black mail, and extort money from each other, with false accusations. Its the go to tactic in divorce situations, and every lawyer knows it. Men living with women can be controlled and manipulated, with just the THREAT of a false accusation and Protective Order / Restraining Order. There is NO defense for it. Give Americans their due process back, and stop violating people's most basic rights. Call them. Senate Judiciary Committee (Washington) 202-224-5225 Or keep getting falsely accused... Trust me, EVERY female KNOWS she can do this.... all she needs is a reason. Yes, its THAT easy for them! Its because of our LAWS! They NEED to CHANGE.

i was a career firefighter/paramedic and a FEMA rescue specialest prior to be falsely accused of domestic violence by my mental ill ex girlfriend who is diagnosed with boarder line personally disorder. She was violent and i would never strike a women, its not in me, I always walked away even to the point where i would leave my own home to stop the assault on myself. I finally broke it off with her and walked away and she thrented to ruin my life if i left her, she called the police and made the accusation with no injuries or signs of struggle, My fire department terminated me due to accusation and based there destine solely on a police report and i have lost the love my life and that is the fire service. im broken and now i have lost it all cause i decided to get of a toxic and abusive relationship

My former fiancé was arrested for assaulting me when she called the cops herself. I refused to testify, wrote a letter to the DA all the while she was setting me up and she tried to say in court it was my fault. She got her charges dropped. 6 months later she attacks me for I think the 6th time. I grab her and hold her down, not gently mind you but o sure as hell didn’t assault her, I didn’t hit her, I just didn’t want to be hit again. I get out of the house, next morning arrested for felony charges for domestic violence. She called me 250 times since then. Testified in court at preliminary where I wasn’t allowed to speak. Ended up pleading guilty to misdemeanors. Law enforcement career ruined, almost lost my daughter from a previous relationship. Total nightmare. The system is rigged against males in this case and the laws certainly need to be changed. If your being hit, leave. Don’t defend yourself ever. She hits you once end the relationship or end up like me. Life ruined and a year later still trying to pick up the pieces.

In CT I am guilty until proven innocent. The problem is no one is interested in my story. Wife is a drug addict who came to steal the children and claimed domestic abuse with no physical evidence. I have been fighting this for 6 months now. I regained my children because she landed in jail for child endangerment and identity theft but I'm still guilty. I have the kids but no job because I could not find affordable child care. Today they offered me a suspended sentence and probation. I'm not guilty. I have petitioned the judge for a family violence program so my sentence (of my "guilt") will be removed after I complete the program. Thank goodness for my military service because I don't know how we would survive.
