Domestic Violence

Family/Domestic Violence is dealt with in a largely insane manner in Western countries. To understand why Domestic Violence is treated in an insane manner in Western countries, you have to understand its history. The Feminists only made a media issue and political issue out of Domestic Violence in order to use it as a stick to beat men with.  Rosemary Hunter (Narratives of Domestic Violence Sydney Law Review Vol. 28: 733 http://sydney.edu.au/law/slr/slr28_4/Hunter.pdf ) states in her Abstract:

Second wave feminists in Australia brought the social issue of domestic violence out of the suburban shadows and into the activist and policy spotlight in the 1970s.

Then they called it a "Women's Issue", which (if it meant anything at all) meant that only women -- and Feminist women at that -- were allowed to have an opinion on it.  However, women are just as violent towards men as vice versa -- see Professor Fiebert's Annotated Domestic Violence Bibliography at http://www.csulb.edu/~mfiebert/assault.htm

Since then, the MUC (Media-University Complex) has indulged in an orgy of anti-male (misandristic) propaganda about Domestic Violence.  Lenore Walker was a pioneer among these man-haters.  As Robert Sheaffer said in his review of her book, "The Battered Woman",

The Battered Woman is unsatisfactory as a serious work, and completely unacceptable as a foundation for family law. First, it is profoundly unscholarly. Without objective verification of the incidents herein described, they are nothing more than hearsay. Second, the book does not even pretend to be objective: the woman's side, and only the woman's side, is presented, when it is undeniable that in a large percentage of cases, the woman initiates violence against the man. Third, Prof. Walker's expanded definition of "battering" that includes verbal abuse does not even address the issue of female verbal abuse of men. Fourth, there is no reason whatsoever to believe that Prof. Walker's sample of "battered women" is in any way a representative sample, and even if it were, she presents no statistics to support her conclusions. In fact, most of her conclusions are utterly unsupported by any kind of data, and are simply pronounced ex cathedra.

Feminist so-called "scholars" have concentrated on violence against women, and even have an "academic" journal by that name.  Any attempt to discuss female violence gainst males has been regarded as a dangerous distraction from violence against women, and has resulted in bullying by Feminists

 

Police Domestic Violence Policy

Although women commit just as much Domestic Violence as men do, it is obvious that many more men than women are actually arrested for Domestic Violence, even though the Police do not collect statistics on arrests for Domestic Violence per se.  In an email dated 4 October 2013, in reponse to an Official Information Act request, Gavin Knight, Acting National Manager: Performance of the New Zealand Police, told me that, from 1 July 2010 to 31 December 2012, 85% of persons bound by Police Safety Orders (which are temporary evictions for the prevention of Domestic Violence) were males.  The Police do not routinely gather statistics on the sex of such people, but a study of their demographics was carried out in December 2012, resulting in the above statistics.  See below.

 

There is an obvious and glaring discrepancy between the fact that women commit just as much Domestic Violence as men and the fact that it is mainly men who are arrested for Domestic Violence and evicted to prevent Domestic Violence.  This matter is in urgent need of research, but -- in the meantime -- it is natural to speculate that the reasons are (a) Police anti-male bias and (b) the reluctance of men to report female violence, for reasons which inclued Police anti-male bias.  The Police are, in effect, the Women's Police.  If you are in Police power and call them the "Women's Police" (as I have done on two occasions), they either make a false accusation against you or try to provoke you, so that they can beat you up in self-defence.

 

Cover-Up by the Minister of Women's Police

In an effort to clear up and expose what was actually happening here, I initiated the following correspondence, of which the first question was transferred from the (then) Minister of Justice to the Minister of Police.  There was also some confusion (between them) as to whether the Police themselves or the Minister would answer the question:

26 January 2014

Hon. Judith Collins
Minister of Justice
Parliament House
Wellington

Dear Mrs. Collins,

The Ombudsmen have advised me to rephrase my recent Official Information Act request to you in terms which are strictly compliant with that Act.

Under the Official Information Act, therefore, could you please answer the following questions:

1. I refer to your statement that “… overwhelmingly, assault, including in a domestic context, is committed by men.” Does the Government have any policy document which recommends encouraging male victims of female domestic violence to report it to the Police? The deliberate absence of any such advertisements conspires to perpetuate the myth that it is mainly men who commit domestic violence.
2. Does the Ministry of Justice hold copies of the following New Zealand research papers, which demonstrate that it is an outrageous untruth to state that “…overwhelmingly, assault, including in a domestic context, is committed by men?” (a) Magdol, L., Moffitt, T. E., Caspi, A., Fagan, J., Newman, D. L., & Silva, P. A. (1997). Gender differences in partner violence in a birth cohort of 21 year Olds: bridging the gap between clinical and epidemiological approaches. Journal of Consulting and Clinical Psychology, 65, 68-78. (b) Moffitt, T. E., Robins, R. W., & Caspi, A. (2001). A couples analysis of partner abuse with implications for abuse-prevention policy. Criminology & Public Policy, 1 (1), 5-36. (c) Fergusson, D. M., Horwood, L. J., & Ridder, E. M. (2005). Partner violence and mental health outcomes in a New Zealand birth cohort. Journal of Marriage and Family, 67, 1103-1119. (d) Ehrensaft, M. K., Moffitt, T. E., & Caspi, A. (2004). Clinically abusive relationships in an unselected birth cohort: men's and women's participation and developmental antecedents. Journal of Abnormal Psychology, 113 (2), 258-270. (e) Jackson, S. M., Cram, F. & Seymour, F. W. (2000). Violence and sexual coercion in high school students' dating relationships.

Now, it is obvious to any half-way intelligent and fair-minded person that the above reply does not answer my question "Does the Government have any policy document which recommends encouraging male victims of female domestic violence to report it to the Police?"  The Minister of Woman's Police was perpetrating a devious cover-up and did not even mention the word "document".  The Victims' Rights Act is irrelevant, since it only comes into play once the Police have been called out and have decided who is the so-called "victim" and who is the so-called "offender" (which they are quite capable of getting wrong, anyway!).  What I was asking about was the process by which the Police get to hear about Domestic Violence in the first place.

So I asked the Ombudsmen to enforce the Official Information Act:

14 March 2014
The Ombudsmen
P.O. Box 10152
Wellington

Dear Sir/Madam,

Could you please investigate and review the failure of the New Zealand Police (request transferred from the Minister of Police) to reply to my question, as specified in the enclosed copy of the reply which I received from the Minister of Police?

Thank you in advance.

Yours sincerely,

Peter D. Zohrab

 

To my shocked surprise, the Ombudsman provided the following biased or incompetent response:

 

I contacted his assistant, Richard Ruddenklau, by telephone and email, and he said I could write again, if dissatisfied with the Ombudsman's response.  So I wrote again, as follows:

 

Dear sir,

I have spoken to Richard Ruddenklau about this matter and he suggested I write to you.

My question to the Minister was as follows:

"Does the Government have any policy document which recommends encouraging male victims of female domestic violence to report it to the Police? The deliberate absence of any such advertisements conspires to perpetuate the myth that it is mainly men who commit domestic violence."

The Minister's answer clearly and obviously does not refer to any policy document which recommends encouraging male victims of female domestic violence to report it to the Police. The only document that it refers to is the Victims' Rights Act 2002. From the first two paragraphs of the Minister's reply that are quoted in your letter of 15 May 2014, it is clear that the Victims' Rights Act 2002 has to do with Police treatment of people who have already been identified by the Police as being "victims" and are being processed in some way by the Police.

My question to the Minister clearly referred to male victims of female domestic violence who were not -- at that stage -- known to the Police as victims, and therefore are not referred to in the Victims' Rights Act 2002.

The third and final paragraph of the Minister's reply is not an excerpt from any policy document, but merely the Minister uttering her usual platitudes (which I have become used to from watching Parliament on television).

Could you please ask the Minister to answer my question?

Yours sincerely,

Peter Zohrab

 

The following reply is evidence (if any was needed) that intelligence and integrity are not both necessary characteristics of a "Professor":

 

Sidestepping (for the time being) this outrageous behaviour on the part of both the Minister and the Ombudsman, I decided to take another approach and wrote to the Minister again (see below):

 

22 July 2014

Minister of Police
Parliament House
Wellington

Dear Anne Tolley,

On 26 January 2014 I put the following question to the Minister of Justice, and it was forwarded to you:

"Does the Government have any policy document which recommends encouraging male victims of female domestic violence to report it to the Police? The deliberate absence of any such advertisements conspires to perpetuate the myth that it is mainly men who commit domestic violence."

On 1 April 2014 I wrote to you again, complaining that you had failed to answer that question. You again failed to answer the question.

Therefore I make the following request and question:

Could you please give me a copy of any and all New Zealand Police policy documents which recommend that the New Zealand Police place advertisements in the media which encourage male victims of female domestic violence to report it to the Police? If there are no such policy documents, could you please tell me so. The deliberate absence of any such advertisements conspires to perpetuate the myth that it is mainly men who commit domestic violence.

Yours sincerely,

Peter D. Zohrab

 

Finally, I got the reply that I had wanted right at the beginning, which proved that I had been right, and that there was no such document -- even though the Minister and Ombudsmen had been behaving as if they were conspiring to prevent me from getting the proof which I wanted:

Conclusion

Both the Minister of Police and the Ombudsman are either grossly incompetent or deliberately trying to conceal the facts here.  The vast majority of politicians and academics are vicious scum who are determined to oppress men by concealing facts and preventing men from having any rights with respect to women.  This is quite insane, but that is the way it is in Western countries, which have been conquered by brain-dead Feminism.
