Why is it still I see all guys being arrested for domestic violence....when I called police during the times I was pushed, hit, scratched, punched in the face in front of my child, car keyed in front of me....the police said why don't you find a place to stay tonight....that was on four different occasions.... So I had to leave the house at three in the morning with my son after being ripped from my bed while sleeping pushed down the stairs because I was the guy and won't defend myself because I don't want to be on the police blotter as a guy because I defended myself and my child. No matter what then justice system is still skewed.... Funny thing was the cops knew she was drunk...when I went back into the house with the cops she cussed them out too and started throwing things down the stairs. Amazing that its still this way.
Ernie Knight November 26, 2012 at 05:20 PM
The reason that you see so many males arrested for domestic battery is that the vast majority of spouse abusers are male. I am aware of no research anywhere, by anyone, indicating that females abuse spouses at similar rates as males. Your personal experience cannot be generalized to everyone.
David Anderson November 26, 2012 at 07:57 PM
The you don't read much. Here is one from the UK. A simple Google search reveals many more like it. Data from Home Office statistical bulletins and the British Crime Survey show that men made up about 40% of domestic violence victims each year between 2004-05 and 2008-09, the last year for which figures are available. In 2006-07 men made up 43.4% of all those who had suffered partner abuse in the previous year, which rose to 45.5% in 2007-08 but fell to 37.7% in 2008-09. Similar or slightly larger numbers of men were subjected to severe force in an incident with their partner, according to the same documents. The figure stood at 48.6% in 2006-07, 48.3% the next year and 37.5% in 2008-09, Home Office statistics show.
Tim November 26, 2012 at 08:36 PM
Ernie has this mental block that allows him to think that if he doesn't know about something, or if it contradicts what he thinks he knows, it can't be true. He seems to have stopped learning and processing new information at some point long ago. Here are 285+ different investigations that show the rate is fairly similar across genders; http://www.csulb.edu/~mfiebert/assault.htm With an aggregate sample size in the reviewed studies exceeding 371,600. And with certain demographics actually having MORE female->male abuse. You said it perfect Ernie, your personal experience(or lack of) can not be generalized to everyone. Just because you don't know about it, doesn't mean it's false.
Ernie Knight November 26, 2012 at 08:43 PM
David, I was actually referring to the United States not the United Kingdom. Let's see the study of United States domestic crime, David.
Ernie Knight November 26, 2012 at 08:52 PM
Tim, There you go again. Not reading your own citation. Where exactly in the Bibliography of research studies, does it make an overall conclusion. Your conclusion is NOT an accurate reflection of those studies. Tim, you can't always follow the unicorns. Show me FBI UCR statistics from anywhere in the United States showing similar rates of arrests for domestic battery for men and women.
Tim November 26, 2012 at 08:58 PM
No you weren't Ernie. "I am aware of no research anywhere, by anyone" You said 'anywhere, by anyone', not 'in the US'. (not that it changes the results). Just admit that you don't know what you are talking about, and instead are forming your opinions on personal stereotypes, instead of well-documented empirical facts that exist across hundreds of independent studies(performed in the US). (they all come to the same conclusion, which is directly contradictory to your previous statement of 'fact') Archer, J. (2000). Sex differences in aggression between heterosexual partners: A meta-analytic review. Psychological Bulletin, 126, 651-680. (Meta-analyses of sex differences in physical aggression indicate that women were more likely than men to “use one or more acts of physical aggression and to use such acts more frequently.” In terms of injuries, women were somewhat more likely to be injured, and analyses reveal that 62% of those injured were women.)
Ernie Knight November 26, 2012 at 09:10 PM
Tim, It's very simple. You prefer to live in the realm of the theoretical. Research which is not studying crime, but "aggression". Aggression is not, in itself, a crime, Tim. I speak from the perspective of reality. The actual commission of domestic CRIME. Not abstract theory. The first post was about crime and arrests, not theorectical constructs of aggression or violence. Show me the FBI UCR statistics that back up YOUR claim that women are just as violent as men. I can't wait.
Ernie Knight November 26, 2012 at 09:17 PM
Hey Tim, How about those domestic homicides? What percentage are committed by women? Yeah, pretty tiny. How many battered men end up in the hospital compared to battered women?
David Anderson November 26, 2012 at 09:47 PM
Hey Ernie, take a second and do some research rather than blindly defending your original position. Does this help? Its from the US Department of Justice. The math comes to roughly the same statistic...40% of victims are male: Approximately 1.3 million women and 835,000 men are physically assaulted by an intimate partner annually in the United States. Patricia Tjaden & Nancy Thoennes, U.S. Dep't of Just., NCJ 183781, Full Report of the Prevalence, Incidence, and Consequences of Intimate Partner Violence Against Women: Findings from the National Violence Against Women Survey, at iv (2000), available at http://www.ojp.usdoj.gov/nij/pubs-sum/183781.htm
David Anderson November 26, 2012 at 09:49 PM
Oh and Ernie the reason more women end up hospitalized is because men tend to be physically stronger and hit harder. Women also report these crimes at a much higher rate than men. Don't see the forest for the trees do you?
Old Lee November 26, 2012 at 10:04 PM
Domestic Violence by males, females, or both is a terrible situation. Tim, If you are quoting statistics then please stick with the facts: Between 1998 and 2002, nearly 4 out of 5 violent offenders were male. Males accounted for 75.6% of family violence offenders and 80.4% of nonfamily violence offenders. Among violent crimes against a spouse, 86.1% of the offenders were male; against a boyfriend or girlfriend, 82.4%; and against a stranger, 86% of the offenders were male. Statistics: U.S. Department of Justice, Office of Justice Programs Family Violence Statistics Including Statistics on Strangers and Acquaintances http://bjs.ojp.usdoj.gov/content/pub/pdf/fvs02.pdf
Tim November 26, 2012 at 10:27 PM
That is a nice statistic on violent crime. Perhaps you would like to get back to the point of domestic abuse now. An adult male killing his elderly father, has nothing to do with the ratio of male/female paired abuse that is being discussed. Domestic abuse is a subset of the violent crime statistics you have posted, they are not the same data sets. Statistics are one thing, but understanding what you are looking at is rather important. Let's try this one more time, hopefully you can allow empirical evidence to supersede any prejudices you may have; "SUMMARY: This bibliography examines 286 scholarly investigations: 221 empirical studies and 65 reviews and/or analyses, which demonstrate that women are as physically aggressive, or more aggressive, than men in their relationships with their spouses or male partners. The aggregate sample size in the reviewed studies exceeds 371,600. "
Hugo November 26, 2012 at 10:32 PM
A chick is so loopy she wants to hit? Grab the keys and leave. Unlike the reverse situation, it's unlikely she can physically hold you down and detain you. The scourge of a female violence against men....right. Matt, I don't mean to laugh at your situation, but....lol...c'mon. Man-up. Arresting someone gives someone some breathing room to fix the situation. You apparently have no interest in doing so since you've been sticking around.
Hugo November 27, 2012 at 01:00 AM
Oh, and... Jeanine Glennon, 43, of the 23000 block of W. Lockport St., Plainfield, was arrested by Plainfield police and booked into the Will County jail on a charge of domestic battery, according to jail records. Bond amount was $500.
Ernie Knight November 27, 2012 at 02:42 PM
Tim, You're off the mark again! That is NOT data on domestic CRIME. It is psychological research on THEORETICAL CONSTRUCTS of aggression and violence. This thread is not about theory. It is about DOMESTIC CRIME. Your "research" is NOT.
Ernie Knight November 27, 2012 at 02:54 PM
Hey David, Interesting how you cherry-pick your numbers. Your own citation shows that men were the victims of 36% of intimate partner crime OCCURRING IN THE LAST 12 MONTHS. Lifetime it's 22%. And those are phone surveys, not crime reports investigated by police to determine probable cause.
Ernie Knight November 27, 2012 at 02:59 PM
David, Give it up. Your sexism is showing. There is a very good reason that almost all domestic violence shelters are for women. Domestic homicide against women is a very significant problem. Women get beaten and killed by men at a far higher rate than the reverse. There is no way around that.
David Anderson November 27, 2012 at 03:18 PM
Ernie, I will turn that right back at you...your sexism and ignorance are showing. Hit in the face with objective data that shows you are wrong and still you wont admit it. Keep digging your heels and refuse to admit you have bought into the feminist BS that only men are violent and only women are victims. Its sad really. this could have been a learning experience for you but you are obviously too bullheaded to admit when you are wrong. Want me to keep flooding you with proof that women use violence in domestic situations as much as men? I'm happy to. Women may get hurt more often but, as I said, they initiate violence at a similar rate. you can refuse to believe it but that does not make you right.
David Anderson November 27, 2012 at 03:22 PM
Hey Ernie...read and learn: Yet more than 200 studies have found that women initiate at least as much violence against their male partners as vice versa. Men account for about a third of domestic-violence injuries and deaths. Research shows women often compensate for their lack of physical strength by employing weapons and the element of surprise — just as Miss Kazemi is thought to have done. The most recent large-scale study of domestic violence was conducted by Harvard researchers and published in the American Journal of Public Health. The study, which surveyed 11,000 men and women, found that, according to both men’s and women’s accounts, 50 percent of the violence in their relationships was reciprocal (involving both parties). In those cases, the women were more likely to have been the first to strike. Moreover, when the violence was one-sided, both women and men said women were the perpetrators about 70 percent of the time.

Ernie Knight November 27, 2012 at 03:28 PM
David, I have a problem with equating a scratch or a slap with strangulation, beating or killing. Your data DO NOT show that women abuse men at similar rates (22% lifetime is NOT 50%, in case you hadn't noticed). They do NOT show that women commit a large share of DOMESTIC CRIME. Your ramblings sound like the justifications of an abuser. You cannot produce proof that women commit Domestic Crime at the same rates as men, because it doesn't exist.
David Anderson November 27, 2012 at 03:30 PM
Nice try Ernie. If I prove you wrong I am an abuser. You are an ass, and a sorry one at that.
David Anderson November 27, 2012 at 03:34 PM
And by the way your proof is above in my second post which you have chosen to ignore. repeat after me...It's OK to be wrong, it's OK to be wrong...
Ernie Knight November 27, 2012 at 03:35 PM
David, Producing more studies which are NOT CRIME DATA, and which equate a scratch by a woman with a punch from a man (or worse), is NOT compelling. Look at ARRESTS. Where a CRIME was INVESTIGATED and INJURIES or DEATHS were considered. Deal with reality.
David Anderson November 27, 2012 at 03:42 PM
30% of injuries and deaths from domestic violence are male. What more do you need? last time I checked death was not a scratch. But I guess you are far more intelligent than a group of Harvard researchers that surveyed 11,000 people right? And be honest and ask yourself what happens when the police arrive at a domestic violence scene. You know the answer so do you think maybe the arrest records are less relevant than a mass of research studies that you choose to ignore; studies that speak to men AND women about their experiences? Not filtered through a sytem that is heavily skewed in one direction. You seriously have issues with just admitting you were wrong. Doesn't make you less of a man there Ernie. It really doesn't.
Ernie Knight November 27, 2012 at 03:52 PM
David, I will happily admit making a mistake, when I make one. Your vaunted research cited, does NOT take into account the SEVERITY of abuse, does NOT show CRIME DATA, does NOT show probable cause that domestic crime occurred, and was conducted by PHONE. Phone surveys are nice, unverified, source data for a study. They are NOT hard crime data. You are misinterpreting the results. Show me equal number of domestic homicides for men and women. Show me equal numbers of arrests for domestic crime. The FBI Uniform Crime Reporting statistics are authoritative. Male officers are NOT inherently biased against men. Your research does NOT trump reality.
Ernie Knight November 27, 2012 at 03:58 PM
Personally, I'll take the word of sworn police officers, detectives and forensic specialists on-scene at a domestic crime, over a PHONE SURVEY by a Harvard researcher. How many injuries did that PHONE research observe? How many bodies did it find? Academia has never had strong roots in reality.
Kevin S November 27, 2012 at 11:46 PM
This particular blotter seems an odd one to post a comment about women never getting charged with DV. Although extremely rare, this blotter does include "Jeanine Glennon, 43, of the 23000 block of W. Lockport St., Plainfield, was arrested by Plainfield police and booked into the Will County jail on a charge of domestic battery, according to jail records."
Lisa S. November 28, 2012 at 12:56 AM
Why have all the comments been hijacked by a bunch of men in an apparent p***ing match? Men hit women, women hit men, yes it exists, yes more men probably get arrested. The assumption of most people (wrong or right) is that it is men can hurt women and women can't get away... while most men presumably can't be hurt by a woman and can get away. The numbers and statistics are all skewed to whatever outcome you are looking for by what parameters you set and what data gets 'disqualified'. Like anything else, it's just a numbers game.
