Am I being heard? Do my experiences, thoughts and feelings even matter to the law?
I know how you feel. I just fought my 3rd dv. The judge treated me like I was the offender. The laws for dv are not strict enough. Stay strong and don’t give up the fight. Please I know it’s a struggle to keep fighting but in the end it’s worth it. Love and prayers
We are not imagining discrimination against our cases. I was charged with several violent offenses after calling police to report abuse. Later I got a hold of the 911 tape where the dispatcher contacted the officer to go to the scene. The officer said upon hearing it was for a domestic “well they will just have to take it up some other time, not on a busy Friday night”. Upon arriving, they refused to take my report, and treated me terribly. I complained to the department, and they cleared themselves of any wrongdoing.
