Completely false. Domestic violence is another special interest group of lawyers, advocates and those making money directly off federal funds. It has nothing to do with protecting the victim or anything else. It is merely about money. The rate of recividism iin domestic violence issues is 98%--98% of the people involved get back together. The problem is government doesn't ask them to repay all the monies invested in them via domestic violence shelters, special proescutors etc. They ask the tax payer to pay that. This is just another con and racket. If you wanted to actually help domestic violence victims you would make them personally responsible pay back all monies if they got back together with their abuser.
