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!

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.

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

Speakers include Chief Police Inspector Katarina Paulsson from Åmål Police in Sweden, and Police Investigator Karpla Karney from Pleebo Police in Liberia and NYPD representative from Domestic Violence Unit. We could sufficiently capture the framework for protection against domestic violence by spanning law enforcement policies across three continents, namely Africa, Europe, and America.
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
Join hosts Alice Lynch and Sumayya Coleman, and Research Commentator Shasme Jackson as they speak to Zoe Flowers about the importance of supporting survivors in their recovery from domestic and sexual violence, and various methods that may help with the healing process. The show will also discuss vicarious trauma and ways that it impacts those working in the caring professions.
Shattered Lives Radio and host Donna R. Gore welcomes Chief Marty Sumner and Shay Harger to the show to further discuss the Offender Focused DV Initiative and how communities in which it’s being utilized are having a positive impact.
A refreshing new approach to combatting intimate partner violence by becoming proactive in the early stages is an important breakthrough by High Point, NC Chief of Police, Marty Sumner.
Although traditional victim focus is still of utmost importance and resources for victims will always be needed, by curtailing offenders at the first offense there’s a likelihood that it will also restrict chronic offenders and remove the immediate danger to the victim more often.
ATHLETES, DOMESTIC VIOLENCE, AND ARE WE TAKING IT SERIOUSLY?
We’ve all seen the headlines- Ray Rice gets two game suspension for knocking his fiancé unconscious and dragging her off a casino elevator. Joe Mixon under investigation for punching a woman in the face. One of the Steubenville high school students convicted of rape is back on the football field. The news reports go on and on with allegations and prosecutions of athletes at all levels for violence against women. And what are we doing about it? The NFL gives a slap on the hand to Rice (who could have been suspended for numerous games if he had smoked a joint). Sports fans still line up for autographs, and the victims are disparaged for “ruining” the athlete’s life. Have we really slipped down the rabbit hole when it comes to seriously dealing with violent athletes?
So let’s talk about it. Brian O’Connor, Director of Public Education Campaigns and Programs for Futures Without Violence where he crafts national and international violence prevention campaigns for a variety of audiences. He’s former marketer of global brands such as Gatorade and Kodak, and reporter for the Village Voice. His work engaging men inspires them to model positive masculinity and teach boys that violence never equals strength. Brian holds a master's from Columbia University and is a member of the National Association of Black Journalists. He is the former president of the board of Root Division, an arts education non-profit based in San Francisco where he lives.
Join us Saturday at 11 am Pacific Time to learn more about our responses to athletes who are also abusers.
