As a survivor, I believe more protections need to be put into place...though many of the current laws are adequate, if only they would be enforced, especially when the abuser is famous.

I am so sorry Dianne, I already signed and shared your petition and truly hope it helps you get some kind of justice and protection. You shouldn't have to EVER deal with this - and even worse since you lost Patrick.
I am keeping The Wolf Cry on FB going strong, doing my best to ease your burden and keep it running the way you intended.

Sending you positive thoughts and understanding. I have been alone and in a similar situation as you are in and I know the police usually don't care and are useless. Please stay as safe as possible. We care about you.

Thanks Barb for posting for Dianne.

Dear Dianne; I have already signed, But if it will help you get more help from the police I will sign again. Can you go to a crisis woman shelter. or take a restraining order out against his family????? I pray that God will send you aid and keep you safe from these bullies. WHAT ARE THE POLICE WAITING FOR?????? Do these terrible people have to kill this poor lady before help is offered??????? What kind of system are we running here in America, when a widow can not be safe in her own home??????

Yes I have 2 grown children...both heroin addicts hat I kicked out of my they are not involved with me anymore,concerned only of their next "fix",I am alone and fear for my life and really believe the only thing that will make these people happy is when they take me out in a body bag.......guess what I got a h*** of a lot of fight in me before that happens.My beloved Patrick is watching over me and between him and all of my dear friends here on C2...I will become even stronger than those POS can even begin to imagine in their tiny little brains.I will survive!I will help others in my situation...and it will NOT be up to the a******* to leave but the aholes who think they have all the answers,when in fact they do not even know the question.I miss my Patrick so so much...I hurt more than I have ever ever hurt.Question is how much abuse does a women have to take...before she gets help?Answer is I do not have to take anymore abuse from anyone ever ever again.Not even the police who are to "protect and serve".

Previously,signed and noted and have reshared on all social medias.No women should be abused physically and/or mentally! No woman should have to be scared for her life,constantly watching over her back!!Police should be active in enforcing the laws as they took a vow to protect and serve,not to stand back laughing and/or scoffing at them!! They need to be evaluated mentally and physically before being hired to enforce the laws.This lady has been,there for everybody else no matter what the case was.always putting others before herself.Now we need to rise up and fight for her rights and the rights of all women. Nobody knows the journey these women have had and no body should be judging what they don't understand!!
