Today is a good day in the UK for all survivors/victims of narcissist’s and other perpetrators of EMOTIONAL & PSYCHOLOGICAL ABUSE!
It’s a very BAD day for narcissist’s.Here are some articles taken from today’s press. I’m not a fan of the MSM (mainstream media) and prefer to read the alternative media for anything that remotely resembles the truth BUT I figured this was such a huge step in the right direction towards tackling the problem of psychological abuse that goes on in some relationships, leaving the victim a shadow of their former selves. These people know exactly what they are doing, and now we are a step further along the legal railroad heading in the right direction, and that direction is called JUSTICE. I’m almost positive our government has a hidden agenda in rolling this consultation forward but right now I really do not care, I’m just thankful that they are intending to severely punished the perpetrators of these truly evil hidden abuses.
The message from the Government is LOUD & CLEAR so I hope all you bastards are ready – you don’t need to use physical violence to injure another human being and if you keep on with your sick and twisted mind games YOU can be sent to jail for up to five years. Yes, it’s a bloody damn fine day today. My only hope for those that do go to jail is that they undergo some form of behaviour modification, without that they may come out even angrier than when they went in.
Government to launch consultation on strengthening the law to protect victims of psychological abuse
The government has announced that it will begin a consultation on making psychological abuse a criminal offence, in a move that has been welcomed by campaigners.
Theresa May said the government needs to make it clear that emotional abuse can be “a living hell” for victims and tougher laws are needed. “I want perpetrators to be in no doubt that their cruel and controlling behaviour is criminal,” she told the Guardian.
Existing legislation on non-violent abuse exists but only under stalking and harassment laws. It has never been explicitly criminalised when occurring within relationships.
The action has been welcomed by women’s charities and campaigners. “Two women a week are killed by domestic violence, and in our experience of working with survivors, coercive controlling behaviour is at the heart of the most dangerous abuse,” said Poly Neate, from the domestic abuse charity Women’s Aid.
Domestic violence. A new criminal offence could protect abuse victims whose partners cause psychological harm.
A new criminal offence of domestic abuse could be introduced to include emotional and psychological harm inflicted by a partner within a relationship.
The government launched a consultation on Wednesday to look at strengthening the law by explicitly stating that domestic abuse covers coercive and controlling behaviour as well as physical harm.
The move comes after the way that police respond to domestic abuse in England and Wales was condemned as “alarming and unacceptable” in a report by Her Majesty’s Inspectorate of Constabulary (HMIC) in March.
The consultation document says that police fail to see abuse, particularly in its nonviolent form, as a serious crime, adding: “Creating a specific offence of domestic abuse may send a clear, consistent message to frontline agencies that nonviolent control in an intimate relationship is criminal.
“Explicitly capturing this in legislation may also help victims identify the behaviour they are suffering as wrong and encourage them to report it, and cause perpetrators to rethink their controlling behaviour.”
The latest statistics reported in the Crime Survey for England and Wales suggest that 30% of women and 16% of men will experience domestic abuse during their lifetime.
The Home Office said the type of behaviour a new law could cover included threatening a partner with violence, cutting them off from friends and family or refusing them access to money in order to limit their freedom. Under existing law, nonviolent coercive and controlling behaviour is captured by the legislation that covers stalking and harassment but it does not explicitly apply to intimate relationships.
The home secretary, Theresa May, said: “Tackling domestic abuse is one of this government’s top priorities. The government is clear that abuse is not just physical. Victims who are subjected to a living hell by their partners must have the confidence to come forward. Meanwhile, I want perpetrators to be in no doubt that their cruel and controlling behaviour is criminal.”
In the introduction to the consultation document, May acknowledges that changing the law cannot be a substitute for improving the police response – HMIC found that arrest rates varied from 45% to 90% across the 43 police forces in England and Wales – but says officers must have the best possible tools to do their job.
Polly Neate, chief executive of the charity Women’s Aid, said the change, if implemented, could help give victims greater confidence to speak out sooner. “This is a vital step forward for victims of domestic violence,” she said.
“Two women a week are killed by domestic violence, and in our experience of working with survivors, coercive controlling behaviour is at the heart of the most dangerous abuse. This move demonstrates a strong commitment from the Home Office to listening to victims of abuse in framing the law that serves them.”
The shadow home secretary, Yvette Cooper, welcomed the move but said the coalition had presided over a “backwards slide” in action against domestic violence and support for victims. “Under this government, refuges across the country are cutting services and many are threatened with closure,” said Cooper.
“Prosecutions and convictions as a proportion of recorded domestic crime are falling. And over the last four years over 10,000 perpetrators of domestic violence have been handed only community resolutions, with many simply being asked to apologise to their victim.”
I AM NOW COMPLETELY FREE FROM ALL MIND GAMES, SILENT TREATMENT, EMOTIONAL AND PSYCHOLOGICAL ABUSE AND IT FEELS 100% AMAZING TO BE FREE AND “So Happy” after all these years. I would NEVER in a million years go back to that. I CHOOSE to ignore everything. Life, after all these WASTED years is finally amazing once more. Su x
