Change Domestic Abuse Laws
I am writing this because of a recent incedent that has shattered many lives. It really hit home with me because I was involved in a similiar situation 5 years ago and I think laws should be changed. A young woman was killed along with her stepfather after her abusive estranged boyfriend (and father of her child) got released from jail on bail for a second time. I have seen this to many times! I also had a boyfriend who was released on bail twice after becoming violent with me. There was a lot I couldn't understand, like how he was sending me letters and calling me from jail when I had an order for protection against him. I am trying to get the law changed so that individuals involved in situations like this are not granted bail. I know that in prison, people with crimes against people are treated differently because they are a threat to the community. For instance someone with a drug charge is eligible for "boot camp", and a person with a violent crime is not. please sign this if it is something you believe in and help stop the fear these women live in.
