Tammy's Three Strikes And Your Out sign now

The number one cause of injuries to females in America is domestic violence.


In the year 2000, alone, there were 1,247 women murdered by their current or former husband or boyfriend. Statistics show that one out of every four women will be battered by the man that is suppose to LOVE her. If she leaves him, her risk of being murdered by him is four to one.In America 3-4 MILLION women are battered each year by their intimate partner. More than twice as many women are killed each year by their current or former husbands or boyfriends than by complete strangers. On average, more than THREE women EVERYDAY are killed by their current or former partners in America. We as a whole need to come together to make the laws stricter. The men realize they can beat their "loves," spend the night in jail and the justice system, in all reality lets this happen.Essentially, nothing is done to prevent her murder. It now becomes an issue of WHEN. Restraining orders are not working. The majority of women murdered by current or former intimates usually already had one issued against him. We are failing these women! Women that could just as easily be your daughters, sisters, mothers, and friends. Please be their voices. My proposal for "Tammy's Three Strikes And Your Out Law" is:





1)If the police are called by a woman/man complaining of domestic violence...First time he/she is put in jail for a mandatory 24 hours. The second offese he stays in jail for 72 hours. If the police are called on a third incident he/she is immediately sent to jail for at least six months to a year. During this time he/she will HAVE to successfully complete courses such as anger management, etc. If not completed, he remains in jail.





2)If he brags that he will get her when he gets out, or when released, even makes one threat or contacts her in any way, he is put in prison for at least 2-5 more years.





Though I realize this will not completely solve the issue, I do believe it will deter many men from using violence. Something has to be done before he kills her. It also will give women more assurance that on that third call, she is rid of him. Therefore, encouraging her to report him to the police. During this time she can get her life togher and move if necessary. She can do what ever it takes so that she is able to live without fear. And for once, he will be imprisoned, instead of the innocent woman being imprisoned in her own home.
