MEN are too frequently abused and even jailed! There are many gals that LIE and accuse and set-up situations, when in fact they are the abuser!

Cutting him off from family, friends-making threats and then text-messaging, begging them to "come home".

I KNOW of one fella' currently in jail there that this has happened to repeatedly! He has been stabbed, punched, etc. etc. and when told to call the police...he stated, "They won't believe me and I'll be the one that's locked up,'cause I'm the guy!" All the while it could be heard this gal's screaming and throwing things, etc.While this gal has been out running all over Wisconsin with numerous other guys!

I am a female and have suffered under domestic violence (so I know the "REAL McCoy"...but too MANY men are being accused, etc. etc. because gal's USE these laws as toys. The manipulation of the "system" is a travesty!!!

These comments are NOT about the terrible story listed...but is indeed applicable regarding "domestic violence"!

All abusive situations are sad, but the incidence of abuse against men is horribly under-reported, and remains part of the largest myth about domestic violence. For men, there is no support system, no shelter, and they are likely to find themselves under arrest when they finally do call 911. Craziness is gender neutral.
