Abusers / Domestic Violence Offenders National Registry & Notification Of Residence

When a person commits an act of domestic violence and/or abuse, they are let go only to violate once more. The victims are left confused and alone, some may not want to move forward with their stories for fear their abuser will hurt them. It takes so much courage for a victim to go through the due process yet repeat offenders still remain among us and their new victims do not suspect a thing. Children are put in between such brutality but what if they were exposed initially?  I ask that a public mandatory and searchable registry be kept locally and nationally. (.gov web host)  Also, just as sex offenders have to register and make known their presence in any neighborhood, a DV predator should be required to inform everyone within a 500 mile radius of him or her of their presence, at their expense entirely. The offender should have their name in each state and then on a national registry, listing their full name, photo along with dates and descriptions of offenses.

Petition to CNN, MSNBC, FOX News, U.S. Senate, ABC, Federal Bureau of Investigation, Donald J. Trump

Chris Watts is a paid actor, require the media give a valid case number on all news!

Last year top news channels provided a completely false story about a family that was murdered by domestic violence by a person that is a paid actor. We did the research and found no death certificates for Shannan or her children, nor did we find Chris Watts in any prison across the US.As you can see every single photo of him and his wife, they are using the same face. They simply cut out and pasted it on to every single family photo.  This act was paid for by the company Le'vel in their efforts to try and promote their product Thrive a popular sports drink. How do we know this? Well their are a ton of news articles where they brag about Chris Watts addiction to Thrive comparing it to meth. Along with the numerous horrible photo shopped Thrive patches on their photos. Remember every single news channel in the US are all owned by the same person so it wouldn't take much for them all to be on the same boat.  There should be a law that requires: News channels give a valid case number on all homicides, since it is public information anyway. Provide case numbers and documents on all crimes that are already public information. Include valid court documents with the article. The case number in the Chris Watts case is 100% bogus and does not exist. The fake court documents we did find even on the family suing recently. Sorry they look nice but those are not valid case numbers. If this was real news they would not let me publish a book with a photo of him and his wife on the cover, and his name in the title. They would sue me for copyright violation. But "they" don't exist, a fictional character can't sue.

Petition to End Abuse Wisconsin, Governor Tony Evers, Senator Patty Schnacter, Donald J. Trump, Scott Walker, Tony Evers, Wisconsin State Senate, Wisconsin State House, FOX News, ABC, Bernie Sanders, Tammy Baldwin, Judge Joseph Boles

Stop making victims in Wisconsin pay for their safety

Victims of domestic abuse are encouraged to leave their abusers and protect their children. However, when they do, the Wisconsin (broken) legal system is designed to perpetuate the cycle of abuse by not only protecting the perpetrator and allowing them to use the court system to legally harass and abuse their victims by proxy, but they also force the victims to pay for their safety. An abuser can file a motion for anything at anytime so long as they pay the filing fee, then the courts order the victim to pay for things such as Guardian Ad Litem fees (which become astronomical when you have a perpetrator who fights them every step of the way. Perpetrators force their victims continuously into family court and make them pay for it, whether they can afford it or not, thus allowing them to financially abuse, control and torture and retaliate against their victims. Judges will also grant these motions forcing the victims to pay without ever having a hearing. This is of course on top of lawyers fees that the victim accrues to retain someone to help them navigate the courts and represent them. Most victims don’t have disposable income and the means to afford this like their abusers do and the victims (both parent and child) pay the ultimate price. In cases where abuse (domestic and child) have been established, the abuser should have to pay for the court costs. By allowing the current status quo to continue the courts are endangering the lives of survivors and sending the message that the perpetrators still maintain all control. Please help me fight not only for my family, but for those suffering just like me, and  those who will need the courts help in the future. Don’t allow us to become another statistic of domestic violence abuse/homicide that you see on the news. Tell Wisconsin legislators and judges that this needs to end now. Join our voice and help us stand up.

Petition to Women leaders in San Antonio

Mētú - Women of Diversity Defeating Violence

We are a diverse group of women leaders in San Antonio, Texas. Some of us are survivors of domestic abuse, all of us are horrified that a man who has been accused of domestic violence by both his former and current wife is on the cusp of becoming the mayor of the 7th largest city in the country. We are worried what the election of this man would say to our sisters, sons and daughters. We are convinced his election would set the cause of women back decades in our city. Greg Brockhouse, currently the Councilman for District 6, has for years held close ties as a strategist and key advisor for the police and fire unions in San Antonio. Perhaps it is those ties that account for the convenient disappearance of his police records on these matters. Making our case more difficult is the fact that the organizations tasked with protecting women and children from domestic violence in our city rely on city funding that they stand to lose if this man becomes mayor. For this reason they are justifiably fearful and may be reluctant to call him out. Specifically, we have joined together to draw attention to this situation because: In 2018 there were 28 domestic violence related murders in San Antonio. This number has quadrupled since 2015. Domestic Violence is an epidemic in our community. We believe strongly that a man who abuses women is not fit to serve as mayor of our city. We suspect that the evidence shows a pattern of abusive behavior that should not be so easy to sweep under the rug. We believe that Greg Brockhouse’s character and personality are consistent with that of domestic abusers and other bullies. We believe that in a Brockhouse administration women will have reduced opportunity and power. Sadly, part of the pathology of this problem is that the victims of abuse, are often complicit in protecting their abusers. We are reaching out to distinguished individuals and organizations in hopes that you will help us shine a light on this man, on this issue, and begin a loud and TIMELY conversation about domestic abuse, how to recognize it, how to escape it, how to END it (and hopefully how NOT to elect it).
