Domestic abusers should be put on register like sex offenders, warns report

Our thanks to Sean for this. As always with stories on domestic abuse, the piece was written by a female journalist, the stock photograph at the top of the piece is of an abused woman, and claims of abuse are always taken to be based on fact, because women never lie – so men are deemed automatically guilty and having to prove their innocence, which is generally impossible.

If everyone who read this gave us just £1 – or even better, £1 monthly – we could change the world. Click here to make a difference. Thanks.

About Mike Buchanan

I'm a men's human rights advocate, writer, and publisher. My primary focus is leading the political party I launched in 2013, Justice for Men & Boys (and the women who love them). I still work actively on two campaigns I launched in early 2012, Campaign for Merit in Business and the Anti-Feminism League. In 2014 I launched The Alternative Sexism Project, aiming to raise public understanding that the sexism faced by men and boys has far more grievous consequences than the sexism faced by women and girls.

    “Current measures to tackle domestic abuse include criminal behaviour orders, which can be used to prevent people from contacting or approaching their victims, and domestic violence protection orders, which ban domestic abusers from returning to a residence and having contact with the victim for 28 days. Individuals also have the right to ask police whether a new or existing partner has a violent history under the “Domestic Violence Disclosure Scheme”. And under the same scheme, officers have procedures to approach potential victims and inform them if police are concerned about their safety”
    So as the article points out there are already provisions like a register. The “orders” are civil law and so need little by way of evidence to be imposed. Yet to “break” the order is a Criminal Offence resulting in imprisonment. And of course the Domestic Violence Disclosure Scheme effectively is a “register” as it requires the ex offender to keep the police up to date on their address etc. So the Assembly man is virtue signalling.
    The rise in cases coincides of course reflects the introduction of the offence of Domestic Abuse in the Serious Crime act 2015 and the push to use the new Act, it as is pretty normal with a “new offence” introduced by the Gov. Police cases are generally driven by such campaigns and this is why the BCS is generally regarded as a sounder indication of trends, and the trend for Domestic Abuse has been downward for decades.
    Of course this is all part of “cranking up” for the promised review and new Act, one of the things to survive the post election “cull” of Tory manifesto promises. As reminded here the feminist MPs are getting ready to make maximum effort to dismiss the current Legal “gender neutral” legislation and put in a VAWG Act, Which like the Istanbul Declaration enshrines feminist dogma in law. Unsurprisingly the promised review of family law and introduction of shared care didn’t survive the cull.
    So the pretext of protecting damsels from nasty brutes will result in a much greater spread of “offences”.

    “…Mr Duvall said a register of domestic abusers would require offenders to give the police their personal details, including name and address, and to update with any changes….”

    Seldom does one hear of a more stupid and dangerous suggestion than this.
    Time was when it was likely to have only come from the tainted mouth of a socialist wanna be power wielder as it did on this occasion.
    Now it’s anybody’s guess.

    Firstly who IS a domestic abuser, someone

    perhaps who has simply been accused of it?
    How would one disprove it? There is often no evidence of a negative by it’s very nature as has been frequently observed.
    But more to the point, requiring members of any sub group to go and indentify themselves to the police is a well known precurser condition to systematic atrocity that one need not try your patience with here.

    Anyone up for that?
