Today in American society we have many social ills Perhaps one of the most upsetting at least to me personally is domestic violence Domestic violence can come in many shapes and forms and affects many different people Reasons vary for spousalchild abuse but none are justified Policecommunity programs have recently had a more pro-active role in domestic violence but that is not a solution to our problem at large On the micro level the ultimate responsibility of elimination of violence rests on the victim On the macro level we must look at our society critically and analyze why we have such an immense problem and how we can help correct it In the following sections I will discuss domestic violence issues and attempt to offer some solutions I will frequently use anecdotal evidence as well as statistical figures I assign genders to the abuser and victim using he and she or husband and wife frequentlythis is for simplification Although most victimization is male against female I am generalizing for simplicity Domestic violence is a prevalent issue in the United States There is much controversy as too how much violence actually exists in America much of it takes place behind closed doors and is difficult to identify but assuredly we have a problem with the issue as it is reported that almost 4 of American families experienced severe physical violence of a degree that had the probability of inflicting injury or death upon the victim stabbed gun used beat up punched wwwsilcomcompaladinmadvfaq-dvhtml This 4 may seem like a small figure but it equates to four million victims and that only includes the major injury-inflicting violence Another source states that 1 in 3 women will be assaulted by a domestic partner in her lifetime wwwnpctseduuohandsondomviolstatfacthtml Another source indicates that 63 of parents have engaged in violent acts towards their children Assaults Against Women and Children p 219 Truly this issue is unacceptable in a civil society
