Domestic Violence Warning Signs

From TV station WPRI in PROVIDENCE, R.I. comes this Domestic Violence Warning Sign. Statistics show that over one out of every 10 domestic violence assaults is a homicide. Doctors who are on the front lines are exposing those red flags that can signal a victim as at risk of being killed.

“According to a study from the National Institute of Justice, intimate partner homicides make up 50 percent of all murders of women in the United States, and in 70 to 80 percent of domestic violence murders – the man physically abused the woman before the murder.”

  1. Is anyone threatening or hurting you?
  2. Is anyone hitting, kicking, choking or hurting you physically?
  3. Is anyone forcing you to do something sexually you don’t want to do?

There is also a checklist to help identify women who may be at risk of being killed.
Researchers at Johns Hopkins University tell us that certain types of injuries or actions are a red flag.

Here are some of the warning signs:

  • A victim is threatened with a weapon.
  • A partner verbally threatens to kill her.
  • A victim is forced to have sex with her partner.

The most deadly physical clue – signs of choking or strangulation.

In a relationship where a woman has been strangled once it is ten times more likely to end in a homicide. Biting and scratching, kicking and other aggressive behaviors could likely be precursors to a deadly end.

Abusive On-The-Run Nanny Caught

Last week in Chelyabinsk, a city in central Russia’s Chelyabinsk Oblast region, Russian police captured an on-the-run nanny who was recorded on a hidden camera beating an 11-month-old baby and throwing him around the room.

A local businessman hired the babysitter online and asked her to look after his son. He said that when they were around she had seemed attentive and caring for the baby boy but he became suspicious because the child seemed distressed every time he was handed over to her so he put in a hidden camera.

The nanny was captured on camera throwing the baby onto the couch as she tried to dress him.

Hidden camera footage also revealed the moment the nanny appeared to strike the baby boy.

It didn’t occur to the father that the babysitter might be abusing the child because she was always caring and attentive

But after his son’s distress continued he decided to install a hidden camera, which captured shocking images of the boy barely able to walk being picked up and flung onto the sofa, slapped on the face or having his legs knocked out from under him to force him to fall back down into his baby chair.

After the footage was handed to police, they launched a search for the woman who has now been tracked down and arrested.

The slaps and the aggression were clearly designed to cause distress to the boy but at the same time not to leave marks that would make the parents suspicious.

Signs Of Teen Dating Violence

Here’s a story about an increasing problem around the country- Teen Dating Violence.

“New research released by the American Psychological Association in 2013 paints a stark picture with nearly 1-in-3 young people aged 14-20 reporting they had been involved in an abusive relationship. According to the Centers for Disease Control (CDC), victims of teen dating violence are more likely to do poorly in school and engage in binge drinking, suicide attempts, and violent behavior.

The CDC study also cites that physically abused teens are three times more likely than their non-abused peers to experience violence during their subsequent years. Ultimately, this creates a troubling cycle of abuse that can negatively impact a victim without intervention and can be carried on through generations.”

Signs of potential abuse are:

– Unexplained bruises or marks
– Falling self-esteem
– Increased isolation from friends and family
– Change in appearance that has been dictated by a significant other
– Technology being used as a way to monitor another’s activities
– Signs of intense efforts to help fix the partner, to accept blame and to take too much responsibility for relationship problems.

Teenage women need to learn how to defend themselves. One of the best ways to do that is to carry a powerful pepper spray like this one that is 87% stronger than competing brands contains a UV marking dye and can incapacitate an assailant for as much 45 minutes.

Domestic Violence-War Within Us

Here’s a story about the ravages of Domestic Violence worldwide.

“According to the World Health Organization WHO at least 10-15 cases of murders, torture and assault on women by their husbands or other family members in some corner of the country are reported in the newspapers. What is more shocking is that 38 percent of murderers in such cases are their intimate partners and 35 percentages of women are victims of domestic violence each year worldwide as per 2013 survey of domestic violence WHO.

Even in USA one woman becomes victim of domestic violence every 9 seconds. Domestic violence happens to be third most common causes of homelessness even in USA. Also, reporting of cases of domestic violence follows iceberg phenomenon where hardly 10 % of cases are reported.”

In India domestic violence is even worse.

Domestic violence may be defined as all forms of harassment of women in form of sexual assault (forced kisses, touching, fondling, rape, sexual / reproductive coercion), physical (wounds, fracture, genital injuries), mental assault sufficient enough to affect mental physical and economic well-being of a woman.”

Every indication is that domestic violence is generational passed down from father to son. Until that cycle is broken, the problem of domestic violence will persist.

Husbands who are alcoholic, or mentally disturbed due substance misuse tend to be more abusive and violent towards their wives.

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.
