Domestic Violence-The Secret Killer

Everyone knows about domestic violence as a criminal issue. But this article by Forbes magazine talks about it in a social, business and health context.

Read the whole story from Forbes magazine HERE.

The article makes the argument that “domestic violence reduces productivity leads to absenteeism and drives up health care costs” costing an estimated $8.3 billion was higher medical expenses and lost productivity.

“Nearly a quarter of employed women report that domestic violence has affected their work performance at some point in their lives. Each year, an estimated 8 million days of paid work is lost in the U.S. because of domestic violence” according to the article.

We’ve seen some progress since then, but the silence remains deafening. Every manager or business owner has a role to play in domestic violence if for no other reason than to improve the level of productivity of their business.

University Campus Sexual Assaults Are Epidemic

Here’s a story from the Enterprise News.com out of tiny Brockton, Massachusetts where the claim that the numbers of sexual assaults on college campuses are staggering. They also are quick to point out that the number of sexual assaults that are reported only represent a tiny minority of those that actually occur because most go unreported.

See the story HERE.

“The prevalence and pervasiveness of sexual violence, especially among college age women, is alarming and much more extensive than people are aware of,” said Toni Troop, a spokeswoman for Jane Doe Inc., the Massachusetts coalition against sexual assault and domestic violence.

“It is estimated that as many as 20 to 25 percent of women in higher educational institutions have experienced a rape in their college career,” Troop said. “We’re talking about an epidemic.”

Federal law requires all colleges and universities that participate in federal financial aid programs to keep and disclose information about crime on and near their respective campuses.

The schools are mandated to report crimes as required by the Jeanne Clery Disclosure of Campus Security Policy and Campus Crime Statistics Act.

Curtailing Domestic Violence

Here’s a story out of South Carolina that makes the argument that domestic violence is not given the priority that it should. In that state legislators are filing a bill that would be a good first step in changing that by changing the penalty for the first offense from 30 days to 180 days in jail.

See the story HERE.

“The increase would bring the penalty for domestic violence in line with crimes such as failing to pay a telephone bill or defrauding a hotel. The fact that penny-ante crimes such as these carry higher penalties than domestic violence shows that the state doesn’t take this problem as seriously as it should.”

The story goes on to say that light penalties such as this sends a message to those who commit domestic violence that it isn’t really a serious crime that they don’t have much to worry about-at most a slap on the wrist.

“We can’t tolerate this behavior in our community, and we can’t continue to treat it as if it’s a family issue with which the courts shouldn’t interfere. It’s a critical issue for our state and community, and it has to be addressed.”

Pepper Spray Selling Like “Hot” Cakes

The story went on to say that background checks for gun sales grew more than 8% from last year but defensive sprays of a particular brand Mace were up by 63%.

“Eric Crawford, the vice president of sales at Mace Security International says when people buy personal security products, they are taking steps to enhance their peace of mind, just like fastening a seatbelt or locking the front door.

‘It’s about making a smart decision to protect yourself. You never know what can happen. It’s a relatively inexpensive insurance policy to purchase or carry a safe self-defense spray.’ ”

The story pointed out that it should be used with discretion and that it’s less effective in windy conditions.

Protect Against Sliders

ABC did a story recently about sliders, not the wicked breaking pitch used by pictures either.

What is a slider?

Sliders are criminals will pull into gas stations next to women who are getting gas. These bad guys know that women more than likely to leave their purses on the front seat of an unlocked car while they’re gassing up.

They pull up next to the victim’s car and “slide” out in a low crouch opening the passenger side door and steals the purse. They then get back into their car and drive off unseen.

The best way to prevent this from happening is to make sure that you keep your car doors locked at all times even when you’re getting gas. And then keep a self-defense product handy in case you happen to turn around and see the bad guy stealing your purse.
