Yes I think there should be a registry for domestic violence offenders. However - given that so many instances of DV are not reported and if they are they don't end up with actual charges laid and convictions I wonder how effective it would be.
We now have laws that enable police to charge abusers even without the victim's cooperation, and I think that is certainly a step in the right direction. This would be another step in the right direction. I think that each small step closes the gaps where women - the vast majority of DV victims - can fall through. I don't think there are any solutions to this situation, but the more we close the gaps the safer individual women and children become.
I agree there should be a register. Unfortunately some poor loving women knowingly entet into relationships with domestic violence offenders because the men convince them that all his violence was the partners fault and she is nothing like his ex. So they believe they can fix him or be a good enough wife to prevent violent assaults. Warning - a leopard NEVER changes his spots
There should be a registry for violence. There are murders daily by offenders. If there was a registry they would think twice on offending. They are just evil bullies that attack others who are not strong enough to defend themselves.
Yes of course there should of been . It's easy to say you would leave before they hurt you but if you have kids and the partner is controlling all the money then sometimes you have no choice but to stay . Emotional abuse and controlling men are just as bad as those that hit you . They want to control everything treat you like a doormat not allowed to complain or have an opinion. It takes away your confidence. These men don't change and get physical if you stand up to them and make things worse . Women need to be warned via the registry and hopefully avoid these men . Men still think it's ok to act this way, if there wAs a registry it may make men get help and change .Some of the general public think emotional abuse is ok bc there are no bruises to see. These men are cowards and play mind games and blame you for everything
