Kansas -- is always decades late in promoting the newest, and best standards and practices for victims of (domestic) violence.
Why they can not just drop the word "domestic" from the violence and prosecute accordingly, is beyond me or simple common sense. Currently the word "domestic" is a "get out of jail free" card, to continue to terrorize women and her children.
Currently in local news, several KC, DV programs and agencies are WRONGLY implementing and touting the "Lethal Assessment Tool". An out dated and dangerous tool to use. I am like, come on already. Its not that hard.
Apparently, it is.
Why common sense can not just be implemented in violence against women and children. the DV industry, the profits? For what ever reasons, they do not help women and children who are subjected to violence.
Perhaps maybe, rewriting simple common sense will work for Kansas. Please take note of the Quincy Solution.
