Your points are with shallow understanding of abuse. The abused person is guilty because they're with the bad guy, though there are no places to
leave, womens shelters are closing down.
I've been in an abusive situation, strangled, and fearing for my life as soon as it was pregancy on. I have resolved it after being strangled, beaten
and thrown in a hole in the road (during road construction), pressed charges, he did 15 weekends. Though the story has a happy ending for him and
his son, but not for the relationship, due to a lot of effort on my part, and prayers and miracles, because I don't give up on people. The only time
the work to help isn't effective is if you are personally vested, and are only wishing the miracles out of selfish wishes. If its selfless, he's a
brother, you never want him back and only want a bigger world for your family instead of the shrunken world you're stuck in, your intentions are for
the good of all, miracles happen. So he gained supervised access because I found a person to provide it, and then finally gained access, made some
changes in his life, gained work out of province, off and on, a bit, then was going blind with diabetes and in the hospital, suicidal and I prayed,
and talked to him in my heart reminding him of who he was, light inside, and a shared friend who died, visited him in his sleep, and he was healed,
the hospital thought they had somehow made a huge mistake.
Then a wrong number got him a job in the oil wells.
People are people, don't objectify them. Feel for them and use a "what if that was my daughter and what would the most caring wonderful mother do in
all situations" Use Love and Common Sense and Wisdom.
Any judge that does this or allows horrible miscarriages of justice is a criminal.
In any case, there was only one point in everything you said that was important that I missed.
The 9/11 call.
Even that does not give any judge or legal system the right to hand anyone a 20 year sentence for no maiming or killing.
This is a horrible miscarriage of justice.
