Domestic violence is a category of crime that carries a heavy underpinning of emotion, politics and human rights considerations. Nearly everyone wants to protect vulnerable members of society. However, it is all too easy to create scapegoats of accused perpetrators without giving them due process.
What starts out as a private spat between spouses or domestic partners can quickly take on a legal life of its own once the police are called. A battered wife, girlfriend, husband or boyfriend may feel justified in calling 911 in the midst of a quarrel.
However, in many cases, the one who called for help tries to recant soon thereafter â€” only to discover that it is too late to undo the damage.
