Domestic Violence is real and entire families are being wiped-out because of it. Innocent children are being killed for no reason, fathers are taking out the entire family through murder-suicides.
Why does it seem to be increasing instead of decreasing with all of the organizations that are available with resources? What is.....does not work, there must be a new strategy put in place and incorporated. The spirit-man must be restored from the inside out.....brokenness, depression, low self-esteem,traumas from childhood all spill over into the adult life and are volatile if not resolved.
Do you know who you are allowing to come into your personal space? How do you know if they are right for you and your future...will you have a future?
Let's face hard truths that can help you make a better decision.
Domestic violence is a term used to characterize a pattern of obvious and subtle hash and brash behaviours resulting into physical and psychological abuses between partners in any types of intimate relationships or other members in a household. Domestic violence can be in a cumulative form of physical, emotional, verbal, economic and sexual abuse or any other type of control mechanism to coerce another individual perpetually. Consequences of domestic violence vary from anxiety, dismay, social disconnect, fragile mental state, tension, breakdown mental and unpredictable consequences such as illness, homicide or permanent disfigurement.
Although domestic violence is a punishable crime and a civil wrong in most well developed countries, it is often under-reported for obvious reasons and hard to prove before the consequence of violence has already taken its toll on the victim, who also may act in self-defence or retaliation. This problem is a growing concern for law enforcement everywhere, as it creates inherent problems in the criminal justice system. Therefore, it is within our civil responsibility to the society as well as it is to the state that we address this issue together. We urge people to join the discussion to help shed a light on various perspectives surrounding domestic violence and more on how to encourage victims to talk openly about how to identify and correct the pattern before it escalates. There are help programs for both abusers and victims.
We here at Taking Shots Radio love women. Love Them! Lately we've been accused of being misogynists (google it). So to stop all that noise we dropped a classic on domestic violence. We tell you what to do to avoid having a hardcore wrestling match with your significant other and then run down the list of a few celebrities that have knuckled up against their spouses!
It’s recorded that every 9 seconds in the U.S a woman is assaulted or beaten. With those statistics that would bring us to almost 7 women a minute which is insane. It’s also recorded that a man is severely assaulted by his wife or girlfriend every 14.6 seconds. Relationships will go through their challenges but when it becomes violent it ignites so much other dynamics; Children are affected, mental and physical damage, and sometimes death in the end. This is a serious issue that sadly takes the lives of up to three women a day in this country.
TUNE IN for a heavy one!
Domestic violence is a heated topic with many different views on what is abuse and how victims should deal with it. Laws have been put in place to have zero tolerance but have they worked the way they were intended and have they created criminals for incidents that should not have resulted in arrest. Is it a problem for just women and why do victims stay so long. Can ABUSERS be changed and if so how. This topic needs more attention and not just for the obvious reasons join us live and share your thoughts

In 1994, the US Congress passed the Violence Against Women Act ("VAWA"). This Act, and the 1996 additions to the Act, recognizes that domestic violence is a national crime and that federal laws can help an overburdened state and local criminal justice system. Available practical information in the US federal domestic violence laws and penalties and the rights of federal victims can be found here: Federal Domestic Violence Laws http://www.justice.gov/usao/gan/documents/federallaws.pdf
