Here is a story out of Jacksonville about reviews of Domestic Violence cases that occurs in Georgia.
According to an in-depth review of the cases conducted by prosecutors and other experts one out of every six Georgians killed as a result of domestic violence has sought help from a shelter or safe house.
Nearly 100 cases have been subjected to these intense reviews. Looking at all of them, the authors of the latest report identified some major elements that seem to correlate.
For instance, roughly one of every four murder victims began their relationship with their killer while still a teenager. And almost all of the victims had decided to leave the relationship or were considering it, what experts call the most dangerous moment. Only 58% of the perpetrators had a job.
The question is why these victims still died after going to the trouble to seek out assistance.
“Limited financial resources can be the single greatest barrier to leaving an abusive relationship.”
Domestic violence does not discriminate based on age, economic status, race, religion or education and impacts not only its victims, but those who witness it.
One in four women will be victims of physical, emotional, psychological, sexual or financial abuse at some point in her lifetime.
