In the past four months, I've received false accusations that began with claimsof violent spousal abuse by my former wife of 20 years. As a result, I haveexperienced criminal arrest, incarceration, conviction, and loss of freedom. I'vealso discovered that the color orange of the inmate attire is definitely not agood color for me.I've been denied access to my 11 year old daughter entirely. The pain of thisparticular injury is indescribable.I was rapidly removed from my own home. So I'm now homeless, unemployed,and am now living out of my one remaining asset out of what was thousands of dollars of assets. This would be my 500 dollar car. Fortunately, I learned sometips from those I met in jail who are homeless themselves. There are many of them.My primary concern since this has occured with me is the safety and well-beingof my daughter. In fact, men typically do not leave an abusive relationshipthemselves because they often fear for their child's safety- along withpotentially losing their relationship with their children.Gender biased stereotypes have ultimately placed me at the mercy of those inthis pathetic family law system we have in this country who absolutely knownothing about me. They do not care to know me.The following was retrieved from www.mediaradar.org, '50 Domestic ViolenceMyths':Women are just as likely as men to engage in partner aggression, according tohundreds of studies. Partner violence, if it happens, is often mutual. Self defense accounts for only fifteen percent or so of partner aggression.Less than five percent of domestic violence incidents involve couples in anintact marital relationship, such as mine was. Studies show marriage is clearlythe safest partner relationship. In fact, most cases of family conflict do notinvolve physical violence at all. Mine never did.I have a restraining order against me now. Over 2/3 of restraining orders issuedare determined to be either unnecessary or false. Also, these orders do notprevent future violence from happening.In fact, restraining orders may encourage violence. Also, if I attempt toreconcile any conflict with my former spouse, I will get arrested. If I send mydaughter a birthday card, I will be in jail. I've not spoken with or seen my wifeor daughter in over two months now. Yet I've been arrested often during thistime.
