I would like to know why domestic violence can go unpunished so easily.  I would also like to know when this will change, and if it is not going to, then I need to know why.

Although I am not sure what the answer is to fix the system, I do think abusers should always be held fully accountable for their crimes. This does not happen nearly as much as it should.

Another problem is that an order of protection is really only useful after it's broken, since holding a piece of paper in front of one's face does not really help much when a person's fist is coming through it.  This really should be modified to help the person that needs to be protected. 

I think the main problem is that people who abuse are given the chance to do it again.  I am not suggesting that an offender be locked up forever, but there is clearly a piece of the puzzle missing if the cycle continues over and over.  The punishments that are given by the courts are not enough to deter an offender from abusing or breaking the law again. 

How is this fair, just, or helpful to anyone?
