The Glenn Inquiry into child abuse and domestic violence, set up in September 2012, has reported back with recommendations in its second report, announced here Glenn Inquiry Domestic Violence a Disaster.
UPDATE: Report is now available for download here: The People’s Blueprint.
Released the day after the fatal stabbing of a women with a protection order there is no doubt room for a kneejerk reaction similar to the homicide that brought about the original domestic violence legislation.
We see the usual dinosaur-feminist attitude from the patron of the Glenn Inquiry, Dame Catherine Tizard …
“We are mad as Hell” and the findings show victims are running out of patience for a “broken” system.
… who can only see the owner of a protection order as the victim, not the other parties including the children of the family.
And again from Bill Wilson QC …
“we found many cases of people breaching protections orders – the blueprint says if there’s justification for protection orders there is justification for electronic monitoring.”
The Family Court has been exposed time and again for its bias, incompetence and illegal behaviour, and here we have a QC suggesting that’s grounds for the mandatory tagging on respondents (read that as men)
