The Violence Against Women Act (VAWA)
The Fraud Within
This page was last updated on Saturday, November 16, 2013
The problem with the current form of this legislative anomaly is that it does not do anything to help men and women who are victims of false allegations, rape or abuse. The Equal Protection Clause (Amendment 14, Section 1) states that '' All persons born or naturalized in the United States, and subject to the jurisdiction thereof, are citizens of the United States and of the state wherein they reside. No state shall make or enforce any law which shall abridge the privileges or immunities of citizens of the United States; nor shall any state deprive any person of life, liberty, or property, without due process of law; nor deny to any person within its jurisdiction the equal protection of the laws." That means that the Violence Against Women Act (VAWA) must apply to men and women.
Moreover, this act promotes lying so that any women can extort money and property from their partner or husband. So one key improvement would require that every woman who claims abuse or rape to undergo DNA testing to insure that her claim is true. This would also prevent false and mistaken claims and as a result, more would benefit with these changes in place.
Section 304, which governs the treatment of sexual violence charges on college and university campuses, requires that cases involving allegations of violence or stalking provide for "prompt and equitable investigation and resolution." According to current information, the Department of Education's Office, for Civil Rights requires a low standard of proof ("preponderance of the evidence") in sexual misconduct cases. That is garbage, for nothing equitable about a false accusation.
The point is that the accuser either is lying or is telling the truth and the evidence can prove it by either its absence or presence. Nothing can be half wrong that appears on test papers that have only true and false answers. Anyone who falsely accuses another person of abuse or any other crime is guilty and the college authorities should expel them. The problem is that the authorities will do nothing when a woman falsely claims abuse. The problem with VAWA is that it is a hodgepodge of legislation that resembles the making of rock soup. Start with water, add one rock, and keep adding stuff until you get your way.
