  1. Thank you so much for sharing this info.
    I worry about the children, too, who are staying home in abusive situations.
    The use of drugs and alcohol could escalate with the increased fear and tension.
    Thank you for posting RESOURCES!♥️

  2. Are you aware of your local law enforcement officer perpetrators (DV), and are you aware of how these cases are silenced to protect the department’s image, and protect the community disrupt?

    🧐

  3. DV prosecution in Mendocino County is a joke. A tragic joke.
    Assemblyman Wood: I was “slapped” on June 11 2019. Despite no injuries, Eyster’s office insisted on prosecuting.
    Yet neither the Court or the District Attorney’s office entered the “DEJ” — deferred entry of judgment — into any kind of law enforcement database. Four or five months later, my spouse was picked up for public intoxication. The jail failed to keep him inside, even though he was obviously in violation. Three weeks later the jerk went on another 2-day vodka binge, and attacked me viciously around 2 p.m. on Saturday March 7th.
    By vicious I mean he tried to actually kill me. Strangled me. Banged my head repeatedly against the sharp edge of three piled-together-boards. Pushed my face into a mattress. Then got a pillow and actively and affirmatively suffocated me. Then he attacked me again. And then chased me into the house, and came at me again…. No witnesses = not a winner for Eyster’s office. So, they prosecute for a slap. But not a ‘headbanging strangling suffocation’ felony assault.
    My medical reports and sustained grievous injuries ARE the evidence. WTAF. I had lumps on three sides of my head – and associated concussions. I had a “dent” in my right temple for about 6 weeks. Now its 9 weeks later. And I have persistent I remain dizzy, headachey, unsteady on my feet, unable to concentrate on my work, need to rest constantly, and the doc says I have “memory loss” of a mild nature — not quite bad enough to take anti-dementia drugs. I wish I +was+ in Humboldt County. At least that District Attorney takes domestic violence seriously.

    Oddly — perhaps neglectfully? — neither the Court or the District Attorney’s office entered the “DEJ” — deferred entry of judgment — into any kind of law enforcement database.
