Response is changing very drastically and it had to because we're not prepared to function when the challeges kobe. Bryant such as social distancing. So here. And i think probably globally challenges with domestic violence primarily has resulted in an increase of very brutal violence and unfortunately murder so for example in madeira. Last year. broken unfortunate record where during the period of kobe we had three back to back domestic violence homicides in another way i like to bring that to give people an actual picture with that site that means the last year eight. Children went through the holidays without their mother. That would that looks like and globally is what i understand it because of social teen and the inability or survivors to be able to access immediate help.

I Dont Like How He Treats His Ex-Wife

"I i don't like how he treats his ex wife. Stephen shirley i'm thirty six years old and recently divorced. I met a guy. Eight months ago and he just got divorced too we bonded over our divorced dilemmas and he was open and honest. About its break-up. He told me that he was controlling and they had a rough marriage because she liked to fight him and throw stuff at him. He told me that he had to restrain her a lot but he never laid a finger on her. He told me that he even took a domestic violence class to try to fix his marriage. This made me afraid to continue talking to him but i told myself that he was so sweet and forthcoming with information. That i shouldn't penalize him for his past. I wanted to go into our relationship with an open mind. He's been nothing but a gentleman to me. I get regular foot rubs and massages flowers for no reason and he even does things around my house to help me out. He never raised his voice at me or seemed irritated at me but whenever his ex wife calls him about any little thing to do with their daughter he is a totally different person. He talks to her like she's a piece of trash and he usually hangs up on her. He has done it in my presence. Numerous times and i always give him time to cool down before talking to him. He's told me a few times that what he calls a. He's taught me a few times. What the calls were about. And it's never anything for him to be so angry with her the other day. I overheard him on the phone with his friend and he talked about his ex wife nonstop and said that his ex wife is lucky. She moved out of town. This made the hair on my on. The back of my neck stand up. Could he be a violent man that had to go to domestic abuse counseling on that had to go to domestic abuse counseling or does his ex wife bring out the worst in him. I need to know before i go. Any further with him okay I think we have a problem

The Tragedy of Teen Dating Violence

"Today's show is gut wrenching but necessary very necessary to talk about. We're gonna talk about teen violence today. Teen dating violence and you know while i think february is teen dating violence awareness month. And i've done shows before on teen dating violence and i. I do safety tips. I've written sections in my college safety one. Oh one about domestic violence and all of that. So you know i know. It's really very prevalent. But i really don't think it's talked about enough because it is so prevalent and you know children at a young age just with puberty and starting to date and all of those things don't have the emotional intellect or the experience to really understand that. Yeah you know boys or girls or whatever. Don't treat each other that way. And i think you know the more we can get the message out to parents to teach their children in in whatever aspect and young people to just kind of share about their various experiences. I only think that that helps in our cause of you know safety tips and carrying about your personal safety and all of that so i was going and looking up because it was recently teen dating violence awareness month. Different statistics and thirty three percent of adolescents. In america are victim to sexual physical verbal or emotional dating abuse. I thought wow thirty. Three percent and females between the ages of sixteen and twenty four are roughly three times more likely than the rest of the population to be abused by an intimate partner.

"Right so. I was thinking of the episode. We're gonna do the myth fact debunking the guy the gun. Lobby's favorite talking points because listen every time there's a mass shooting we always get the same you know same. Bs oh we're gonna we're gonna try to pass a law. Try to pass them temple reform from the left and then the right conseillers the trend. They're trying to they're trying to gones you know and i get it. It can look that way because these measures are you know trying to ban assault rifles from a ban certain type of ammo band bump stocks. Hold all these different things in. It can be a lot for somebody to understand or digest or to even think about when it comes majority was don't even have guns so it doesn't even come to our thoughts like oh let me by gun but it has been more and more common especially nowadays with the craziness. Going around people. Being tapped will being killed the pandemic. It's like the perfect storm in regards to what to do for guns and gun lobbying gun control so that being said let's dive right into it. The biggest myth is only a gun. Makes you safer. The fact is only in gun puts you at a higher and high in risk for gun violence. The nra often argues that the united states is a dangerous place in that owning and carrying a gun is the only way to protect oneself and one's family which i mean it logically when he say it makes sense. Somebody who really burst in topic would be like. Oh well that's logical. But numerous studies have found that gun ownership increases the risk of both gun related homicides and suicides. That's that's you know. Let's think about that for a second obviously can be somewhat true because there's people who are really unstable in regards to mental help. A lot of states. Luckily new york is one of the states in regards to the strictest gun control laws but a lot of days as a matter of showing up going. I d doing background check within a couple of days. You've got a lot of on mental siebel things going on and i'm going to touch bit guns in their homes particularly dangerous for victims of domestic violence. The presents were going in a home with the history of domestic violence increases the risks that a woman will be killed by five hundred percent guns intended for self are calmly and fatal accidents.

"W burgess how you doing. I'm doing phanom. A w burgess of course brother works and the community helping to end domestic violence. He himself has been involved in domestic violence. He's gonna get all that. And i'm just glad you're here man. I'm glad you so transparent because this is a story that can help a whole lot of people because people think that people can't change yes you hit a just tell everybody if you can change anybody could change right indeed much stories. Pretty pretty simple. I think that My store is no different than many folks but where it differs is the accountability piece and the transparency piece. I believe that children learn what you know. And from where they live and then they go on to live what they learned you know. What's the old saying. Her people hurt people. yes Well i believe that's that's a fact also believe that they hurt people because they haven't learned what the it is in. You know that's causing them to hurt others in first if almost they're hurting themselves to begin with and then they go on to hurt other other folks. You know so i. I just believe that we have to speak life into our children's lives because again is beginning in those four walls in those four walls at the house and then obviously is coming out to the halls of work school churches so currently kirk franklin and his son going back and forth. You heard about that right. No have not all men him and his son going back and forth his son put out a audiotape. A to the world of kirk franklin cussing his son out like a sailor. You soon as thirty. Three's is first born and a lot of people trying to figure out what are the dynamics. End our relationship and he was just talking about hurt. People hurt people. Kurt was really angry and his son. Said he's put hands on him before. An therapy sessions What kind of anger is that between family members. So son in a father well again. You know you're talking about agassi physical abuse but it starts with emotional abuse and again i take it back to the root cause of it. Meaning where did kurt actually get. Those methods of solving problems You know so. What did he witness child or what happened to him. Yeah did somebody do something that his parents put a family member or even a coach or maybe even a choir director someone in the choir. They put hands on him. There is a route costs for that anger. You know i'd venture to say that many men today. Bj their anger comes from a source. Meaning many men are have been molested as children at spoke at a conference. Had a gentleman literally come up to me with his wife and he said. Hey w i gotta be honest after hearing you speak i wanna i wanna get to the root of it. I'm gonna go ahead and Tell my story. This was the seventy seven year old man and he looks wife. Looks at me. Says a w have been married for fifty two years and i've been abused my wife for fifty four years fifty four years says he looks at her looks at me says honey this is it. I gotta go. I gotta get it out. He said when i was nine years old he says sixty eight years ago. My girl cousin molested lau goes on to say. I thought i was hurting her Because there were times. When i was bleeding and i didn't know i was bleeding. You know and. I thought that i caused her to bleed. Yeah and He said but the thing when she was finished with me eight w she would pass me onto my brother my other my my god cousin and he would molest wow man he's always says i'm here to tell you. He looks at his wife. Looks at me and he says honey. I'm gay and this is a man has been married for fifty. Two years abused her for fifty four and he says to her. I hate women at those days. You know it wasn't favorable for someone to come out as a gay man so he went through the motions and the facades. And i think when you when you said that about kirk franklin. I'll talk about my life. One of the common ingredients of an abuser is. You are a hero at work in the public uh-huh but you are zero at home. And i think what his son was. Probably trying to show the world like most abusers is as my daddy like i do. I don't see who he really is when he's not cameras on and so you know and so. That's why you know if you look at the photos. That i have out there. You'll see me all dressed up you'll see this mask of a wolfson and that's the hypocrisy half man half animal. You're an animal and that's what you abuser sees day. See the the wolf in you.

Angelina Jolie Filed New Court Documents Alleging Domestic Abuse By Brad Pitt

"Jolie is accusing. Brad pitt of domestic violence and claims that she has proof. So these documents were filed by angelina jolie. Alleging that she's prepared to offer proof against pets regarding her claims of domestic violence she also filed another document in which three minor children that would be shiloh and the twins. Knox and vivian. Who are both night twelve. They might testify now. Her three older children maddox zahara and packs. They do not need parental consent to testify that they could to sources as saying quote. This is just another case of angelina changing the narrative when it suits her so what they're saying here. Is this divorce. This child custody battle has been going on for so long that now it seems to be coming to an end right when we thought market was about to be over. Certainly there are these new accusations and it's very difficult because on this show when people come forward with accusations we take them very seriously. We don't joke about that stuff. Timing of this seems odd to some people but this stuff is explosive mark. You know we really is rob. And i have to tell you as a reporter someone who's covered this couple for years for us weekly had tell the people listening at home that there is so much more that goes on behind that behind the scenes on then you really realize and i think we can read between the lines but a lot of information leaks out about this couple a lot of the story lines and narratives that we see in the magazine and on tv shows. Listen it's very messy and what makes me so sad is that i think the real losers in the situation are the kids and rob. I think it's hard to comment on this until we really see the proof as she That she plans to share. and then i just think it's a very sad situation. Hollywood us very much brad size. They've turned on angelina and to be honest here. A lot of people in hollywood don't really trust angelina and they think that she's playing a game and she's manipulating the facts but we should acknowledge to that in two thousand and sixteen. She accused him of child abuse just before she filed for divorce member. He got into an incident on a private plane with maddox. The fbi was called. Mark the fbi as they investigated brad and they find nothing to be there. The case was closed also to the department of child and family services. They investigated brad to and they cleared him. What some of brad's friends are saying. And i hit the phones this morning. Is they told me. This is very very suspicious. Because had she had proof before they've not being together knife for a long time she would have released it just holding onto something for the last minute. Seems a little bit suspicious. They also point out that with the exception of the two thousand and sixteen accusations that once again he was cleared off by the f. b. i. They've never been any of the police records any reports or even any accusations until now after the case was closed in two thousand sixteen there was a little bit of hope. Angelina actually expressed relief that the investigation had been concluded. Brad spoke out about the investigation to g q and he said the following but nobody wins in court.

How the YWCA Handles the Childcare Crisis and Other Challenges for Women

"Alejandro. Thanks so much for joining us. Thank you for having me so tell us a little bit about the work of the ywca. Sure the ywca as you may know. Kim is one of the oldest and largest women's organization in the country. We've been around for a hundred and sixty two years and it was such a pleasure to be able to lead that organization because through our two hundred and two items as across the country serving twelve hundred communities. We really say that we have our finger on the pulse to be able to look communities large and small in urban suburban and rural areas to be able to witness what's happening but most importantly to able to respond to the needs of communities across the country. It's an amazing pleasure. And why did we say you know has stood at the forefront of some of the most critical issues defining lives of women from Marching for the eight hour workday to creating the first women employment center the first childcare center in the country becoming the first fully racially integrated organization in our nation. You know we have a lot of i. But in this moment i'm ywca continues to be that voice advocating for women and girls and communities of color as we go through covert but more importantly as we go through this recession which is being called the session so you have led this organization for the last several years and recently step down as ceo. But you have let it. During one of the hardest periods in our recent history. These last fourteen months during kobe have been really really difficult. What is leadership like during crisis. What a great question you know. Leadership is most tested in moments of crises. And for me. It was a blessing to be at the helm of ywca. Because i just went into work mode at hyper speed. And what does that mean. That meant that day in and day out it was my mind. Might team My colleagues were all working around the clock thinking about what are the solutions. How do we solve for these problems and being innovative in our approaches because we knew for example that we had to keep our emergency Domestic violence shelters open so across the country wide. Abc's were being very innovative. Some of them had Rv vs or hotel rooms to be able to solve the those Those challenging moments. So as well as i say you know. Leadership is not for the faint of heart. It really requires. it's nasty. It requires boldness but above all. It requires that urgency on. Because i knew that it was a you know this organization was not going to off fail under my watch but it wasn't. It was something that was also very organic We have two hundred and two leaders across the country that lead their respective. ywca's anime to rose to the asian And made sure that they had solutions available to them to their communities. I wanna follow up on what you had said about being in a she session. Can you tell us a little bit about what that term means. Choice of that term really showed up on back sometime in september through the new york times. And what that really meant and ended his. It has been adopted because it's really It really hits the nail on the head. It is the first time in our nation's history that women are at the core of this recession and what that means is that women are bearing the disproportionate impact of the economic wake of covert and. They're bearing the brunt in terms of loss of jobs because there are in those areas that are overly indexed on like restaurant. Hospitality travel retail. They're also having to bear the brunt in terms of the childcare situation there is no there's the lack of childcare. Kids are now at home instead of school kids. Are you know. Childcare centers had to close because of social distancing another areas too they. They are at the moment where they have nowhere to go when it comes to caring of their family And then we're seeing how also how communities of color and women of color are also brand the brunt with the high rate of cova cases and cova deaths. So let's break that down to important issues. You just mentioned the first. His child care what is going on for working women right now and wii childcare so crucial. Well i'll tell you one of the first things you notice was And you continue to see what the job report is that were most of the the losses jobs have been women. Women are leaving the workforce not because they want to but because they have to they either have to care for their children to care for their parents their sandwiched in the middle and unfortunately as a nation we have put childcare shoulders of women. Talk your has to be an issue that really is about families but also as of national importance the organization of economic development they always c. d. tracks how countries deal with childcare and to no surprise the united states is at the bottom of that ranking. So we have to really make childcare at a critical imperative for us and unfortunately women are the ones who bear the brunt in terms of the high cost but also we need to talk about quality and we also need to make sure that it's a you know accessible to everyone so again if we going to bring back women to the workplace and bring back jobs. We have to look at childcare as well as workers in the childcare space. How do we pay them. How are they how do we not only compensate them for a very hard job. I'm so childcare has many many facets and at this point we are at crises and we have to make sure that the funding is there that we're designing child care for twenty-first-century immunity and that we're making it accessible affordable and quality

"domestic violence" Discussed on Confronting: O.J. Simpson

"On episode nine this podcast talked about the topic of domestic violence and how it not only affected nicole brown simpson but also american culture church kim wanted to continue this conversation so she spoke with robin sax and experienced litigator and former l._a. County deputy district attorney brabham also has a master's in social work and is nationally recognized in the fields of sexual assault and domestic abuse the reason that i wanted to make sure i included you on the podcast. Is i love the fact that you just went back and got your masters in social work so the stuff that i want to talk to you about kinda covers domestic violence why don't people report domestic violence and what happens if you do and why family members don't get involved and maybe you can shed some light on some of that. I like your ankle. I go here okay. So why do you think this case made it acceptable to people talk about domestic violence and then for law enforcement to <hes> act on it. Unfortunately many things work in our society. It's only after there's tragedy. Do we end up kind about change. Domestic violence has existed since the beginning of time that the mindset of domestic violence was that this was some sort of interesting dispute uh-huh police and government had no place in the people who needed intervention the most were not getting it because you know our society contributed to the culture of allowing and it's perpetuated and so i think that you have to have a holistic terrible crime that was publicly viewed for some called out how times law enforcement have to go over to o._j. Simpson's house curious to how it changed the reporting some victims all of a sudden there is a comfort what people are publicly recognizing invalidating the existence of something that that they'll with. I think that there's so much shame chain. That's involved in this and so much judgment and that i shouldn't have gotten myself into this that i think that that will always be present to a certain extent and those are the factors i that make people not want to report. I think those are alive and well too.

"How do we change this conversation after the air force said it failed to submit records that may have blocked devon patrick kelly from buying a gun the texas republican senator john cornyn said in a press conference on tuesday that he'll introduce a bill to ensure all federal government's all federal departments and agencies comply with the federal background check system already in place for guns i believe that there's an opportunity for us here to work on a bipartisan basis to come up with a way to address this warning consensus solution to a very real problem which may well of prevented the outcome we saw career in texas last sunday with me this hour april zeal only professor at the school of criminal justice at michigan state university and ruth glen executive director of the national coalition against domestic violence a domestic violence survivor herself of reaction online here from twitter one listener says i fear that people with mental illness will eve even further become stigmatized in our society because the gop continues to insist that guns don't kill people will says it sounds easy but historically police have not responded well to domestic violence ruth glenn speak about that i mean that seems like bit of a blanket statement what's the role of law enforcement in these cases well as it so i really appreciate that comment and game by at like to be very clear that i do not believe that law enforcement it does this deliberately but i do believe that we don't have enough training and assistance to law enforcement to ensure that they can respond appropriately to domestic violence your other caller spot spoke about accountability and when do we really look at domestic abusers and hold them accountable for their behaviour.

"State statutes but there are how are and have been over the years multiple efforts to expand the loughton and berg amendment to cover stalking victims for example who are also a great danger that victims of dating violence boyfriend the boyfriend loophole and even an and just to clarify because the term is intriguing if we called the boyfriend loophole because the law doesn't cover relationship where the two people are where the boyfriend lives in one part of town the girlfriend lives in another part of town he's abusive but because they're not cohabitating they're not married the the law doesn't recognize that as a relationship that's relevant to right even if he is convicted a reeling right yeah exactly and the reason the latin berg amendment by the way it covers domestic violence misdemeanors that was a that was it'll big controversy at the time because prior to that only felony convictions caused gun removal but what we found was that domestic violence no matter how serious unless it rose to the level of attempted murder it was almost never treated as a felony even if it was felonious even if it would have been a felony among the stranger's domestic violence was so often treated as a misdemeanor that uh senator loughton burke fought very hard to make sure that this applied to misdemeanor convictions on domestic violence suit the air force on monday and and again reminding you that the of the shooter in texas had served in the air force and been kicked out of the air force with the dishonorable discharge after serving time food for domestic abuse charges they acknowledged um that they had not entered the that information into the national criminal information database and that's how that's part of the system for doing background checks for gun ownership and the air force says it's going to review now all of these cases to make sure that anything else that's left out there is now properly reported um but this again shows us in the two thousand seven virginia tech shooting showed us the same thing that these background check systems are only as good as the data.

"All of our sponsor domestic violence has led to much of this we don't take domestic violence seriously i think it's why so many abuser still have guns why is that that we don't who could seriously erodes hard to say i i started work in this field over forty years ago and at that time even the police viewed it as a personal family matter your honor his business yeah yeah well that's between them that's their reserve a religious influences to the extent that even family members say go back to him you made this promise for life but you know that sort of thing is oh it's a it's a very very challenging area but as we see with harvey weinstein the response of people to sexual assault and sexual harassment is starting to shift i mean we're watching a culture shift before our eyes were in the middle of him exactly and nam and we keep hoping that there will be that kind of shift around domestic vile that's where it will be to the point that if you're abusive to your spouse you're not invited to the family reunion you're not welcome at sunday dinner you're you you're a fence is treated as a serious offence reducing you don't feels a culture were there yet i don't feel it were there little of personal censure nah i think that i think that's quite true not just personal censure but even at a at a higher level for example we have the loud and berg amendment which says no guns for abusers i worked on that and yet it doesn't cover victims of violence where there's not a spouse all uh relationship dating violence for example best this this boyfriend loophole were known exact words with others exactly it's simply that if you don't have the formal relationship you're not covered by the statute you may be by.
