DORSET Police are dealing with a case of domestic violence every hour of the day.

Officers receive on average 700 reports of domestic abuse per month across the county and have dealt with more than 36,000 incidents of domestic violence in the last five years.

Figures obtained by the Dorset Echo under the Freedom of Information Act revealed the shocking figures which soared last year.

A total of 29,431 incidents of domestic violence from a man towards a woman were reported to officers in the county across the five-year period.

More than 4,000 calls were regarding violence from a woman towards a man over the five-year period, reaching 1,000 incidents last year.

A total of 2,678 ‘other’ domestic violence-related incidents occ-urred across the last five years, including same-sex domestic abuse, which campaigners claim is due to ‘a shift in perception’.

Reported incidents of domestic abuse tend to increase over the Christmas and New Year period.

Across the UK two women a week and one man every 17 days are killed by their partner or former partner.

Detective Inspector Steve Thorpe, of Dorset Police, said: “Dorset Police has seen a rise in the number of reported cases of domestic abuse in recent years and I believe this is largely due to victims willing to report it to the police and take action against the perpetrator.

“We have taken a number of steps to help support victims in reporting these crimes and we work in close partnership with other support agencies.

“We have a dedicated team of specially-trained and experienced officers and police staff to respond to and investigate domestic abuse and to provide the best possible support and protection to victims and their families.

“I would urge anyone suffering domestic abuse to come forward and report it so that action can be taken to keep them safe.”

“I would also warn anyone committing an act of domestic abuse – you will be arrested and dealt with robustly.

“Domestic abuse offences can attract significant custodial sentences.”

Still suffering 30 years after escaping

A WEYMOUTH woman says she lived in constant fear as a victim of domestic abuse.

The mother-of-three, who does not wish to be named, told the Echo that she still suffers despite it being 30 years since she got away from a violent relationship.

She is urging both male and female victims to seek help and have the strength to walk away.

“It’s not just physical abuse – it’s mental and financial abuse.

“I’ve had glass bowls thrown at me, slaps and pushes – it’s a life spent living in fear.

“It was only when I started to speak to people that I realised it wasn’t right and I built up the strength to walk away.”

After meeting her ex-husband when she was only 16, the former abuse victim was married just one year later.

She told the Echo: “I was a troubled and vulnerable teenager and I think that’s what led me into such an unhealthy relationship.

“The first time he hit me was a week after we had been married and it was because I’d bought salad cream instead of mayonnaise.

“To begin with I took his possessive and controlling behaviour as a sign that he really loved me.”

The controlling relationship meant the young bride soon gave up her career aspirations.

She added: “He came out with all of these excuses that he was sorry and it was the pressure of working away.

“Soon I found myself with no friends and he wanted to move away from Dorset.

“Looking back I can see it was the typical situation of abuse where he wanted to get me away from my family and friends.

“If the dinner was spoilt he would slap me. I tried to leave but I soon found out I was pregnant.”

The couple moved back to Dorset and had a second child before she found the strength to leave.

“One time he threw a glass bowl and it nearly hit me and the children.

“Another time I went to the doctor with scold marks and he pretty much guessed what was happening.

“I thought that was how I was going to have to live for the rest of my life.

“I thought I was so stupid and I didn’t deserve anything else.”

She spoke of how the abuse continued following the couple’s divorce.

“One awful evening I’d gone out and came home to find that he’d smashed all the windows and been in the house with a carving knife before ripping up all the soft furnishings.

“He smashed up everything, I was left with nothing.

“I know he’d been waiting for me with the knife.

“I didn’t know what love was until I met my new partner. That’s when my ex-husband finally left me alone.”

She spoke of how she only dealt with her experience years later when she sought counselling.

She added: “Every person has choices and if you can’t make them for yourself make them for your kids.”

Lesbian, gay, bisexual and transgender community BROKEN Rainbow UK supports people of the lesbian, gay, bisexual and transgender community affected by domestic violence and abuse.

Jo Harvey Barringer, managing director of the group, said: “Research has consistently shown that the prevalence of domestic violence in LGB relationships is broadly in line with that of the general population, however the difference comes when looking at reporting – LGB people frequently do not feel confident to report incidents.

“This increase in reporting demonstrates a shift in this perception amongst those experiencing same-sex domestic abuse, a shift in line with the support we offer our helpline callers in considering reporting and with the training and advice we offer statutory agencies.

“We hope to see further increases in confidence to report, to be understood and to be taken seriously by the police.”

Since being established in 2002, a range of services include the national LGBT DV helpline, email service, and partnership projects across the UK. Visit: brokenrainbow.org.uk, call 0300 999 5428 between 10am-5pm.

 

• Think of children

A SPOKESMAN for the Women Action Network Dorset (WAND) group said: “It is worrying to see the upward trend of domestic violence over the past four years and we would encourage anyone, whatever their sex, that is experiencing domestic violence and abuse to seek help and support as soon as possible.

“It can sometimes seem an impossible task to escape a domestic abuse environment, but it is possible, and support agencies are in place to assist you in making the break.

“I would especially urge parents to put the needs of their children first, as the long-term effects on children being brought up in an atmosphere of fear and violence are well documented.”

 

• Police operation

A POLICE operation to tackle domestic abuse in Dorset over the Christmas period was hailed a success.

A total of 105 high-risk victims of domestic violence were identified in Dorset as requiring home visits under Operation Maple – which ran throughout December 2013.

Seventy-three victims were visited and spoken to. A further 29 people were visited and were either not seen or did not reply. Three were not visited. No arrests were made.

The operation was so successful across the Christmas and New Year period, that it will be repeated during the FIFA World Cup in the summer and again next Christmas.

Officers stepped up patrols with additional trained officers dedicated to deal with the issue over the festive period.

They carried out visits to reassure high-risk victims as well as putting safeguarding measures in place to help children and vulnerable adults.

Known offenders were also told to expect a police visit to ensure they are abiding by any special conditions or court orders.

Interesting; approximately 12% is violence against men. I think it is actually more because older men were brought up not to cry.

you are correct in the fact that domestic violence is under reported, but this is the case for both men and women. I would imagine that the amount of unreported domestic violence against women is far greater than 12%.The normality of these relationships is that men are more empowered than women.

I think I read somewhere that on average by the time a victim reports domestic violence to the police, on average it is the 30th occasion. This suggests that only a small fraction of what goes on ever comes to police or social services notice.
Add in the fact that the majority of domestic violence happens behind closed doors, so frequently there are no independent witnesses, you can start to understand why there are so few convictions.

Annotater, Men are in fact appx 40% of victims. If you take into account the under reporting and bias in the law, it is possibly more.

Even the way figures for Male victims are shown in this article categorised as, "other" shows the underlying Misandry and bias attitude inherent in the systems involved in producing them.

You may also notice that missing from these frequently touted "statistics" it is seen that apparently no publicly available record is kept by Authorities, as to the number of false allegations that are made or how many of the allegations are not followed up through a complete lack of evidence. As anyone who is familiar with the family and divorce court systems will know, It is an epidemic of which men are by far the vast majority of victims , a malevolent epidemic that is supported, promoted and encouraged by those with vested interests in the abuse industry.

For more information as to why this is, I invite you all to watch these videos of the brave Erin Pizzey, founder of women's refuges for a far more transparent and honest appraisal of this issue.

It should also be mentioned that I understand the Echo has been publicly challenged to debate the facts of what they publish on these matters, by the J4MB party. This was after censorship of comments was blatantly being undertaken by the Echo over a long period of time, comments that contained no "offensive" material (documented) but did contain information relevant to the articles and cast great doubt on its propaganda and content. They have yet to respond to this challenge.

Ponder this: When was the last time you ever see the Echo (and others) do an article on male victims or interview and obtain statistics from a male victims group like Mankind for example? Never.
Why is it that when official sources say around 40% of victims are Men, do they never publish or interview anything on male victims or their support groups? Ever.
Why is it that every Police, council and 3rd sector meeting on this issue, refuse to include representatives from official Male victims support groups? Watch those video's, you'll learn why.

Your far from alone, in fact many thousand of men like you go ignored, unreported and off the "statistics" . I know of one chap myself who was stood covered in blood with his wife still holding the weapon and ranting when Police arrived, they arrested him and removed him from his house. This is a common symptom of the Male- bias legal and political system we are faced with, example.

A very revealing bit in this video above which shows clearly the root thinking of the experience you had with the police. The chief constable at 0.25.says, " victim", meaning all victims, he then exposes his bias training and chivalry indoctrination when he says, "she". So all victims in his Psyche are by default a, "she". This is the kind of embedded bias male victims are up against and it often flies beneath most peoples radar.

The simple but insidious equation constantly smashed into everyone's mind every day in Movies, TV, books, Magazines, Newspapers is of, " Woman = good + Man = bad", it is quite by deliberate design and that is just one of the things that needs to be challenged.

When your local authority and central government have meetings with the police and other agencies on these issues, no Male support groups are invited or asked for input. These panels are often made up of feminist women who then take it upon themselves to be self-declared, "spokes-people" for male victims, the authority's never even question this.

Much of the tax payers money is being used by feminists in women's groups and those behind the D.V industry , like the misandry based "Fawcett society", for its "political lobbying and awareness" (manipulation and propaganda). It also uses the tax payers money it gets to constantly bombard the general public with bias information and warped statistics. Of course those working in it also do well with jobs, expenses and wages too. You can read more about the £13,000,000,000 pounds ( that's right £13 Billion) that is usurped from the the tax payers purse by these left wing quango's and, "charity's" every year and has done so significantly since Labour come to power in 1997.

Domestic violence as an act does not know gender boundaries, so why is it treated with such massive gender divide by those claiming to help it and those policing and sentencing it?

The equation needs to be re-written thus:
Women = good + Men = good - most of the time but on occasion both can be equally bad. It must be dealt with equally, viewed equally and sentenced equally.

I would call upon the authority's to routinely log and make inclusive in public statistics, how many incidents are proven false allegations or that have no evidence to support them and how many are ever prosecuted for being such so we can have a more realistic view of things . I would think everyone else would ask be interested to know why that is not already done?

"Domestic violence as an act does not know gender boundaries, so why is it treated with such massive gender divide by those claiming to help it and those policing and sentencing it? "

Good Question,
I suffered domestic violence both physical and emotional from my ex wife for years always hoping she would do as she said when it was over and get help.
Although I was stronger and well able to defend myself I did not believe in striking a woman and still hold that belief.

At my parents she attacked me, Biting kicking and punching ripping the shirt from my back.
The police were called as she went wild they arrived just after she had attempted to head but me a second time and I had lowered my head in defence.. She burst her own nose.
The police looked at her and told me I was under arrest !
I had my right hand on my left shoulder to hold my shirt together.
They ordered me to put my hands down I turned my back as I did and said look at this..
My shirt dropped revealing welts, scratches and bite marks.
They said to her did you do this? She replied yes.
They then told me I should not have hit her bursting her nose.
I indignantly replied I have never hit her she tried to head but me and I lowered my head.
They looked at her and she told them that was the case.
They left telling her to keep her hands to her self never even logging it !
Another time we even got as far as the doctors once when the Doc asked what was the matter she said to me "you explain" I did my ex said abruptly blurted -
"There's nothing wrong with me it's him he has a sore throat" !
The Doc just said " Unless she is willing to make the first move there is nothing I can do"
Eventually I went to the Police and was Laughed out of the local station.

She eventually left and accused me of domestic violence which was believed out of hand with no proof.
This culture of gender bias must end !
Violence is wrong from whom ever it comes!

Bistowkid, your story and the other above is typical of THOUSANDS of men who never show up on the stats. Men who are ignored by police and local /central authorities and deliberately avoided in our deeply gender Bias media.

You will notice as mentioned before, how the Echo has never done an article on male victims or victims of false allegations by women ( search their archives top of page) , ever! They have never run articles to support fundraising for male victims. Clear evidence of deliberate Gender bias in that fact alone. Meanwhile outlets like this continue to promote agenda with the Feminist Narrative of Men=bad, woman =good. The truth is of course very different.

Do not worry though, the Men's human rights movement is getting larger exponentially if you do not already know of it after your experiences? ,They are now also teaming up with Men all over India, the middle east, Asia and of course, are already embedded in the western world where Misandry is most prevalent.

If you are not already aware, you can support Men like yourself and men everywhere by joining in with these websites and spreading the word, you can also help by boycotting, undermining and exposing any company, group, political rep, Movie, TV Advert or service that displays nuances of this feminist narrative, or portrays views of men in the way you see mentioned in these sites and videos.

You can also gleam a great deal of educational information from these videos and YouTube channels, to learn what has been going on and for how long, what is going on now and see how it is all being challenged by the MRHM movement. There are hundreds of sites but these are a good starting point to understanding why you must join in if you are a Man.

There are hundreds of sites but these are a good starting point to understanding why you must join in if you are a Man. http://www.youtube.c om/user/manwomanmyth http://www.youtube.c om/watch?v=w5AOj6EhR uY Search youtube for Erin pizzey ( founder of women's refuges) videos, she really blows the lid on the roots and true nature of the abuse industry and why men like you are treated how they are Best of luck and sorry again to hear of your experiences.
