Domestic Violence

Posted: December 14, 2011 in domestic abuse, domestic violence, government, Police

I heard on radio 4 today that the government have set up a review of the definition of Domestic Violence. If I used that term I would be brought to book by my employer as the politically correct acceptable for is Domestic Abuse.

A political red hot potatoe, but this would seem to be lip service only. Domestic abuse is so important there are insufficient officers to deal with the current level of incidents. The domestic violence review is to look at widening the definition tio include the under 18’s. Potentially every child who argues with their sibling could be potentially viewed as a victim of domestic abuse.

The Police are constantly being asked to meddle in the lives of the citizen whilst not requiring the citizen to take responsibility for themselves.

    Glad you see it that way! Husbands and wives beating each other, or their children is one thing – a sibling quarrel, quite another.

  2. Yeay, does that mean I should arrest my son when he disagrees with my daughter over the dorito pack or which channel to watch?

    I do agree there are times for porky intervention but I increasingly feel I am just expected to interfere in the lives of citizens, am I a plaything for big brother?

  3. sorry, re read this and probably got it wrong, first glass of wine (or two) after a loong dry spell……..
