This is a story about Domestic Violence specifically in an area south west of Colorado Springs in the mountains. Domestic violence, in the Colorado Domestic Violence Benchbook, is defined as “one partner’s effort to control the other partner using a variety of tactics that may involve both criminal or non-criminal acts.” Such acts can include assault, arson, murder, burglary, kidnapping, threats and stalking.
Domestic violence behaviors include verbal harassment or criminal mischief, for example when a suspect tears up a house or destroys property.
“Ninety-five percent of domestic violence cases involve the use of drugs or alcohol. We also handle more domestic violence cases in winter, probably because people are confined. Plus, often domestic violence stems from financial issues. In the winter, some people are working less or not at all.”
Ending domestic abuse and sexual assault against women may be a pipe dream, but women need to learn how to defend themselves-which is reality.
