Ten year conviction rates show female domestic violence perpetrators less likely to be prosecuted

Through a series of Freedom of Information Requests and historical Parliamentary data, the ManKind Initiative can reveal (Convictions 200405 to 201314)   that conviction rates are far lower for alleged female perpetrators than for male perpetrators.

  1. Clearly illustrates how difficult it is for a man to get justice in the UK. The Welsh Assembly is planning legislation to deal with domestic violence AGAINST WOMEN. They ignore the plight of male victims entirely. Women have never wanted “equality” – just preferential treatment which is what they usually receive in British courts.

  2. The Equality and Human Rights Commission’s (the Commission’s) Inquiry examined the available evidence in relation to the deaths of 367 adults with mental health conditions who died of ‘non-natural’ causes while in police cells or as detained patients over the period 2010-13, plus a further 295 who died in prison custody, many of whom also had mental health conditions.

    Significantly the report does not examine the gender of these 662 “adults”. However the vast majority were men. Not giving information on Gender or Race (two very pertinent issues) is particularly odd for a report from the EHRC which after all is charged with attention to the people with “protected characteristics” in the Equality Act.

    In the body of the report is notes the fact that the vast majority of prisoners have clinical problems. Significant in the light of both the differential sentencing of men (they are much more likely to be imprisoned and for longer than women for the same offence) and contentions that men who assault partners do so for “political” motivations (to oppress ) rather than as a result of other problems they may have.

    The most recent national data relates to 1997, where 92 per cent of male prisoners were reported to have one of the following five conditions: psychosis, neurosis, personality disorder, alcohol misuse and drug dependence. Seventy per cent had at least two of these.

    So either the 8% of the prison population without one of the five conditions are all in for Domestic Violence (as they are patriarchal terrorists) or in fact DV is connected to illness and dysfunction (which is of course the overwhelming Psychological evidence for both sexes) .
