Every Breath You Take- Police

Every breath you take And every move you make Every bond you break, every step you take I’ll be watching you Every single day And every word you say Every game you play, every night you stay I’ll be watching you Oh, can’t you see You belong to me?
Run for your Life - The Beatles

Well I’d rather see you dead, little girl
Than to be with another man
You better keep your head, little girl Or you won’t know where I am
You better run for your life if you can.

#DomesticViolence charges proven time & again tae b best indicator of #Stalking tae come or #Murder tae come or #familyannihilation tae come BUT ALSO #serialmurder tae come #extremism tae come & #massshooting tae come with multiple murders. This is generally DV committed by men..
With woman as the victim. The indicator in this regard has been shown time & again. We also KNOW that police commit DV at wildly disproportionate rates. Make of that what u will in light of these indicators & perhaps we should look again at DV & how we deal wi it. & fact its no..
anywhere near as simple as men & women kin b perpetrators. While that is absolutely true & we MUST dae more for male victims, it does noone any favours tae treat the issues as 'the same', they're not the same & have very different outcomes eg. 2 men per week DO NOT DIE at hands..

1/. Tmw is the 1st anniversary of #Turkey’s withdrawal from the #IstanbulConvention on violence against women

The message it sent out - that men who violently abuse women can carry on with impunity - is dangerous

So what has happened over the last year?
2/. A year after #Turkey withdrew from the #İstanbulConvention, research by @hrw has revealed how women facing domestic violence are being failed

Restraining orders aren’t enforced

Women are face recurring violence & even murder whilst ‘under protection’
3/. “Every day we wake up to news of another woman killed by a lover, an ex, a husband or stranger”

At least 342 women were killed in #Turkey in 2021

In the face of escalating numbers of femicides the govt should have implemented the #IstanbulConvention!…

What actually happens when women are denied abortions, a 🧵 from a @UCSF study:
1/4 Denying a woman an #abortion creates economic hardship + insecurity which lasts for years: Abortion denial lowers credit scores, increases #debt, bankruptcies+evictions…
2/4 Women turned away from getting an abortion are more likely to stay in contact with a violent partner, increasing their risk of murder. They are also more likely to raise the resulting child alone. #IPV #violence #domesticviolence
3/4 The financial wellbeing and development of living #children is negatively impacted when their mothers are denied abortion. Carrying an unwanted pregnancy to term is associated with poorer maternal bonding, such as feeling trapped, resenting the baby.

1. Dr. Proudman is a spokesperson for the multi-billiion dollar government funded, non profit for profit Ponzi scheme industry. They don’t care about victims and they don’t care about the truth.

🔶 On utilise ce terme pour désigner du harcèlement psychologique ayant recours au mensonge, au déni, à l'omission sélective ou à la déformation de faits dans le but de tirer profit de l'anxiété et de la confusion ainsi générées

🔶 Le gaslighting désigne une forme d'abus mental dans lequel un individu manipule la réalité pour faire douter sa victime de ses perceptions et de sa santé mentale. C'est une façon de priver la victime de gaslighting de libre-arbitre.

The United States is an incredible statistical outlier among economically developed countries re guns per capita. 1/

Like many, I had trouble sleeping last night.

I've spent the last 18 yrs caring for victims of #gunviolence, and more than 10 yrs working to reduce it.

Events like #Ovalde & #BuffaloMassacre shake me to my core.

But I refuse to give up. Here's why. May it give you hope too.
1. Let's start with the facts:

These mass shootings are horrific, horrific events.
But shootings happen every day across the US. Image
Firearm deaths have been increasing for years - but homicide, in particular, increased dramatically over the last 2 years. Particularly among older white men and young minority men.

Yes, mostly men.… ImageImage

Ok. Time to break my silence on this, regardless of the potential avalanche of twitteric fury.

Domestic Violence rates will not crash, despite Osinachi's well publicised death.

Why? Because the women in #DomesticViolence settings are the primary perpetuators.
No one should force a woman to escape #DomesticViolence. No one should cry more than the bereaved.

When a woman is ready to leave a monster, she is ready to leave. Until then, everyone is wasting their time.

There are many reasons why women stay, most of them are bullshit. 👇
You protect a #DomesticViolence perpetrator when you are silent & don't cry out for help.

Tell someone.
Tell everyone.
Tell his family.
Tell your family.
Tell his employer.
Tell his Pastor or Alfa.

Let him be thoroughly embarrassed & humiliated.

I heard "why not just stay pregnant" multiple times this week
I'm abt to make this #Thread
While there are multiple reasons why people may want an #abortion not risking being murdered or harmed by their DV partner is a frequent one
It's not irrational either
ICYMI-Murder is the number one cause of death for pregnant women.
Now if you go to an anti-abortion website their take on this is "men tried to force their partners to have abortions or forced/coerced an abortion thus abortion access is the problem".
Yet anti-choicers do nothing to work on policy that can reduce domestic violence including anti poverty progs since we know financial stress increases risk of DV/IPV
These are the same ppl who make policies claiming a woman being abused who has a child present makes HER an abuser

Okay, listening into the #RHEA the Reproductive Health Equity Act testimony, and listening to folks that haven’t given birth or could have opinions about #reproductivehealth is just always disappointing and unnecessary.
This guy on this panel basically said “why does birth need to constitute a human right”, um, sir, what in the what? LIVING HUMANS don’t have human rights yet.
All this commentary coming to you is really actually inspired by @Justa_Jus ‘s incredible commentary 🤣

In a domestic violence case filed in 2014 by actress Rhea Pillai against tennis star Leander Paes, a Mumbai Court has asked Paes to pay 1.5 lakh as maintenance to Pillai.

They were in a live-in relationship.

“The sexual relationship beyond the ties of marriage is not widely accepted even today also. It’s existence across societies is not in dispute. Several times it posed situations leading to conflict between law and morality. Such relationship put parties into peril.” : Court
“A female partner, is always at the receiving end. A patriarchal society caused various injustices to a female partners involved in such relationships beyond marriage.”: Court

Today marks ten years since my sister Sarah Gosling lost her life.

Sarah met Ian Hope in 2010 on Facebook and quickly they began a digital relationship. In no time they decided that Ian would ride up from Newcastle to Norfolk to collect her on his motorbike.

They did a ‘midnight flit’ and set up home in Newcastle - moving into the flat he’d previously shared with his former girlfriend.

Charming and ‘impulsive’ he’s convinced her that they were better off together.

She was unable to properly explain to her husband and kids...

...why she’d left. Phone calls were short and limited and when she visited them the visits were punctuated by texts and calls from Hope ‘just checking’.

By November 2010 her life had become one of walking into eggshells and trying to please him. He was checking her...

#SupremeCourt to hear Public Interest Litigation (PIL) seeking enforcement of 'network assistance' to victims of domestic violence.
ASG Aishwarya Bhati: We would seek some time to file our response.

Adv Shobha Gupta for petitioner: It seems like the matter is not of importance for the Government.

Court: Ms Shobha please be considerate, the enactment has been introduced long ago.
We'll allow 3 weeks for it, Ms Bhati

Louisa Westropp (born 1858), following a marriage characterised by constant domestic violence, sued her husband for divorce on the grounds of cruelty. Before Irish independence, cruelty was, in theory, legal grounds for divorce.....
#IrishWomenInHistory #NollaigNamBan
..... but men were considered to have the right to physically 'chastise' their wives, as women at that time had few rights (including the right to custody of their own children) cruelty was almost never cited in #divorce proceedings.
#IrishWomenInHistory #NollaigNamBan
It was the first time an #Irish #woman sued her husband for divorce on grounds of cruelty, and it set a legal precedent. Terrible as things were for Louisa, they were much worse for women from less wealthy backgrounds.

1/2 Just a quick one - Twitter is amazing for getting a message out and helping it get to the people it needs to. I'm hoping people can help with this.

I've got a few empty flats over Xmas/NY in Glasgow which are available free for those escaping domestic violence or homeless.
2/2 They are furnished and in the West End/City Centre.

I'm happy to provide food and clothing as well. There's just no sense on these places being empty and people having nowhere to go.

#Homeless #DomesticViolence #HumanityFirst #Glasgow Image
Immensely grateful to all of you - inside an hour tonight you've managed to help someone get a place already from 27th December. The spirit shown by everyone is massively humbling.

I still have a couple more places available.

Hi folks! Welcome to a bare-bones #Pennsylvania #MoCTrack for the week ending 10/31/21.

Since it is so close to #ElectionDay2021 (which should be your focus), I’m just going to run down the votes and quotes, with basic links.
#MoCTrack 1/20
Full Report-
The House passed a bill to fund shelters and programs to address #DomesticViolence.

Over 95% of #GOP MoCs voted No on this. #Shame.

8 of 9 #Pennsylvania GOP MoCs were NO votes, only #PA01's @RepBrianFitz voted YES.
#MoCTrack 2/20…
In case you were wondering why all those #GOP House members voted NO a #DomesticViolence prevention bill? This portion from the speech of Rep. Bob Good of Virginia gives you an idea.

The bill passed, thankfully.

Thread: As an expert on dynamics of gender violence, I am intrigued at the willingness of other experts & professionals in this area to let the police officers on the bodycam video off the hook - or even THANK THEM - for their response on that call. #GabbyPetito
The officers might not have been "jerks" in the way they communicated with Gabby during their response, but they clearly lacked adequate training in partner violence response and WRONGLY identified the primary aggressor.
People who experience partner violence deserve worlds better. Training for situations like this should be a MINIMUM requirement, especially because abusers often use law enforcement (and whatever biases & lack of training officers have) to manipulate their partners.

Asking folks to watch—I mean actually watch—this bodycam video of police interaction with #GabbyPetito and #BrianLaundrie shortly before she went missing. Therr are new developments in this case (now he’s gone too) but I mostly want to discuss #domesticviolence CW: DV, abuse, etc
While I’m not a MH professional, I grew up in an abusive home with a violent narcissist. & bc of that, I’ve also had my share of unhealthy relationships. So, yes: I see this through a lens of personal experience but I’d hope my educated observations add value—NOT distorted facts.
Not here to go over inconsistencies in Brian’s story (although there are a LOT of them if you look) but to discuss how police could have saved a life (or more) but instead chose to fall into ancient tropes about the “crazy gf/ex” & “emotional=unreliable”. Let’s start w/the van.

We need to know and talk about #ElderAbuse the same way we talk about #NAI & #DomesticViolence !

Here are some facts
#Neglect, psychological abuse and financial exploitation is more common than physical or sexual abuse

More common in #ResidentialAgedCareFacilities

It leads to increased risk of mortality and morbidity including more hospitalization and ED visits
We need to #Screen for #ElderAbuse in ED !
The Elder Abuse Suspicion Index (EASI) is a validated short screening instrument
