True domestic violence is criminal and has resulted in tragic consequences. However, the cure may be as
abhorrent as the disease. Governmental overkill has created the Family Violence Industry. The future is
here as "Family Advocacy Centers " are springing up across the nation with hands held out
competing for federal funding. A needless bureaucratic machine defining innocent family members as
batterers is the inevitable outcome of "zero tolerance" and "no-drop" policies.
Further, the protectors have assimilated into a system of arrogance and self-righteousness believing it
and it alone knows what is best for the family. The protectors protect only themselves and seek not to do
justice, but to expand and grow at the expense of those truly victimized, the individual family they claim
to assist. A nation of Americans face a well funded and driven system intent upon finding family violence
for every minor and insignificant transgression.
Instead of tackling real and legitimate domestic violence, the industry is content, fat, and happy with
prosecution of the minutia.
