Domestic violence is an age-old problem that humanity has dealt with, and tried to overcome, for centuries. These days, the rules of society protect family members from becoming the victims of domestic violence by offering them swift and immediate protection from police and law enforcement whenever problem surfaces.
Just like any force of progress, however, there is a downside to strict domestic violence laws. This downside relates to the fact that any family member can cause serious problems for another family member by falsely accusing him or her of domestic violence. Fortunately, those who have been falsely accused will -- at the very least -- have the opportunity to defend themselves.
