    Only two things will stop domestic violence dead in its tracks..
    Most law makers are men the world over aren’t they?
    Remove most of them and implement laws that if there is 110% proof that man beat up on woman and woman beat up on man the penalty must be so deadly that will give the wold be beaters missions of things to think of..
    Then the men and women mostly women whom are beaten to pulp then call police then the perpetrator is changed and brought before the court and the begged for mercy for the criminal they must be charged and be jailed for wasting tax dollars..
