Hundreds of studies on domestic violence have been funded by OVW under VAWA, hundreds sponsored by OVW grants and conducted by
members of academia and many were privately sponsored. Most, if not all, were based on random interviews, polls, surveys and/or anecdotal
data. Many statistics were adapted from those generated by the Department of Justice; however, the US Bureau of Justice statistics also relies on
survey sampling to analyze and report their statistics. The Bureau has even developed a software program on conducting telephone interviews to
obtain crime statistics, including those for domestic violence.


** The Restraining Order /Protective Order process is critically flawed. It does not protect the women that desperately need protection and often
needlessly destroys men and devastates children.

** Many if not most judges handling domestic violence restraining order cases are forced into routinely violating their oath of office.

** The judicial process is on the verge of total collapse….the truth is no longer paramount in judicial decisions on restraining orders .

** The Restraining Order process is a civil complaint and not a criminal complaint in most cases. However, most complaints are issued at a judicial
hearing based on allegations of criminal behavior or criminal acts without the benefit of due process.

** In Massachusetts alone, for the past 5 years we had a total of 230,000 males abusing women.

** Most domestic violence statistics are based on surveys, polls or random interviews rather than evaluations based on court cases.

** Most domestic violence solutions are agenda and gender driven by the federal government and supported by billions of tax dollars.

** Many publicly stated and commonly believed statistics actually come from studies that are entirely based on other studies.

** Higher courts are protective of all judges even when they err or seem to denigrate plaintiffs or defendants.

** President Obama and Vice President Biden are clueless when it comes to VAWA and the path taken by its administrative Office on Violence
Against Women  (OVW).

** Federal and state governments have created a new economic group…”the middle class poor”. They continue to overlook or minimize two major
factors that contribute significantly to the fall or recovery of the economy

** The War on poverty cannot be won unless a major cause is no longer ignored by politicians and is addressed: divorce and restraining orders.

** Males who murder their wives and sometimes their children always do it because of a deep-rooted jealousy or intense desire to control.

** The democrats and republicans have formed a bipartisan alliance and agreed to fund and waste billions of
dollars to support OVW's approach to end domestic violence and protect women from abuse.

**  Domestic violence has become a lucrative business that has created a huge  corporate industry financed by our  taxes.

**Domestic violence is now a war waged on women by a patriarchal society.

** Both parties are also partially responsible for the demise of the family and its values.

** Military veterans (male or female) with PTSD, Traumatic Brain injury or severe physical injuries are not adversely affected by OVW
policies  and procedures.

Answers to this fact or fiction survey are included in this website or in my book "Autopsy of Domestic Violence & Divorce" that is in the
process of being restructured for publication.
Politicians (male or female) at all levels of government
completely ignore what is happening
in the real world of
domestic violence as a result of misguided
ideologies and
policies ...or they are clueless as to what has transpired for
the last two decades. Otherwise, they would demand more
accountability and  transparency from OVW.
