What is Domestic Violence?
Domestic violence is a pattern of behavior used to establish power and control over another person through fear and intimidation. It happens between people who are or have been in an intimate relationship, and often includes the threat or use of violence. It happens when one person believes they are entitled to control another...and it is a crime.
Domestic violence does not discriminate! It knows no race, color, creed, nationality, socio-economic status, marital status, or foundation of faith. While it is typically a man abusing a woman, abuse has been known to be women abusing women and men abusing men. Children and pets are the secondary victims of Domestic Violence, often used as leverage or bargaining tools by the abuser to get what he or she wants.
