    Seattle Press Brands Cops as Batterers

    The pro-feminist Seattle press has launched an assault on Washington state police officers with the publication of a series of hit pieces on the alleged link between cops and domestic violence. Glenn discussed this press campaign and anti-male bias within the domestic violence system with police lieutenant Greg Schmidt, who created the Seattle police department's domestic violence investigation unit in 1994, and criminal defense attorney Lisa Scott, founder of the advocacy group Taking Action Against Bias in the System (TABS).

    Topics discussed included: the minuscule number of police officers who are accused of domestic violence; how DV accusations against cops are often found to be false; the Washington state DV witch hunt which has come in the wake of the David Brame murder-suicide; cops' frustration with mandatory arrest policies which force them to make arrests in minor incidents and non-incidents; how police officers come under great scrutiny if they arrest women in DV situations; how men arrested for alleged abuse are prosecuted even when there's little or no evidence of abuse and the female accuser recants; how the DV system is so draconian that many women are shying away from calling 911; how abused men rarely call the police because they know that often they will be arrested for their wives' or girlfriends' violence; how the system is so biased that, in Lisa Scott's words, men are "two and a half strikes out before they ever enter a courtroom"; and what steps men in deteriorating relationships can take to prevent their wives from using false allegations of domestic violence to drive them out of their children's lives.

    Callers included Joy, a grandmother whose son is in prison on a frame up domestic violence charge; Chad, whose ex-wife used false DV charges to win custody of his children; Bob, a male victim of domestic violence; and Robert, a father who was successful in gaining custody of his children away from his abusive wife.

    To learn about the ways the domestic violence system is stacked against men, see Glenn's columns "Baseball Player's Domestic Violence Arrest Demonstrates How Men are Presumed Guilty in Domestic Disputes" (Los Angeles Daily Journal, San Francisco Daily Journal, 8/8/02), "California Mother's Triple Murders Show Cost of Ignoring Female Abusers" (Dallas Libertarian Post, 2/4/02), and "NCFM-LA's Lawsuit Against Shelters is Valid Response to County's Refusal to Help Abused Men" (Daily Breeze, (6/22/03) (co-authored by Marc Angelucci of the National Coalition of Free Men Los Angeles). Also see Lisa Scott's "Gender bias no cure for domestic violence" (10/24/01).

    To read the anti-male hit pieces, see "Husband, Cop and Enemy" (CBS News, 7/21/03), "Cops who abuse their wives rarely pay the price" (Seattle Post-Intelligencer, 7/23/03), "Police handling of abuse criticized" (Tacoma News Tribune, 7/23/03) and "Some fear 'bogus complaints' will ruin cops' careers" (Seattle Post-Intelligencer, 7/23/03).

    He might be a maleist. Better than him being a feminist, surely.

    Feminists irritate me greatly. They have no reason to exist in this country where they have not only achieved equality but have been given an outrageous advantage over men in certain areas (i.e rights as a parent, a truly disgraceful area for discrimination.)

    Feminists have gone too far, they didn't stop when the scales were balanced which is when they should, they now want to tip the balance further in their own direction. Equality is fair. Men have rights too you know!!
