  • I agree that there should be strict laws, but people find ways to manipulate the laws and there are a lot of loopholes in the system itself and abusers find ways to use it in there favor. I personally have dealt with domestic violence myself during my short marriage of 2 yrs and I live in USA. My abuser meaning now my ex-husband used the law and court system to get away with the evil things he did. Mind you the police was involved, family court and criminal court was involved and I had obtained an order of protection for 3 years for me and my 8 month old daughter. I was told by the police officers that even though I was abused and hit multiple times by my husband and his brother and my daughter was almost hurt also during the incident, I was told by the cops that since I have no blood, cuts, broken bones, there is nothing much they can do beside do a report and I should live with my husband as nothing has happened. The police was able to see the marks on my face and my body but they did not do anything to protect me and my 8 month old daughter. Even though I had an order of protection against my husband and my brother-in-law, they still harass me until today and it has been over 7 yrs since we have been divorced.
