As a women victim of Domestic violence, I feel the law has to change. There are little laws that protect women, if a woman or man are victims of domestic violence there shouldn't be a first or second offense because its obvious that they will do it again, I also believe that they should not be set free on ROR or even bond, how many more stories do we have to see of men getting out of jail after an altercation going to kill or attempt to kill or even kidnap women and children. The law should also protect the minor children in the home and the abusers should not be aloud to be around the children even if the abuser I'd their father, since they could easily become easy targets of the abusers. Injunctions are only set in place if a person is arrested and presented in front of a judge, but honestly a paper stating how far they can stand away from the victim is  taunting, this does not protect the victims. I also believe there should be more funding available for the victims and their children, because in a small instance their whole life changes. I ALSO KNOW WITH FIRST HAND ABUSE, I STAYED IN A TOXIC, ABUSIVE, DEGRADING, EMOTIONLESS, SENSELESS, BECAUSE THESE LAWS ARE WEEK ACROSS THE COUNTRY, THEY DO NOT PROTECT OUR VICTIMS. 

I say we change the laws so less homes are broken and women with their children do not have to stay where they are abused, mentally, physically, emotionally, where they are victims of marital rape, and child abuse.  With this petition my target is see abusers behind bars without having to have multiple offense, or do anger management classes, fines or community services these are not punishments, they are a joke. They should also be marked for life like child molesters are and they should be made public, so women can see first hand what they are getting into, instead of walking blindly into words that soon disappear. I would also like to see abusers be behind bars for 5 years minimum to 20 years maximum depending on the severity of each case, with no bond, no probation and they have to register as a domestic violence offenders. I can't have peace of mind knowing that so many women around me are going through  domestic violence and little to nothing is being done, these women are not just strangers I happen to meet but people I know. 

I say we change the law now, and I need your help!
