Claudine Dombrowski Reporting From Ground Zero in Topeka

There is a crisis in the Family Courts of America and Claudine Dombrowski is a warrior in the battle for change. A battered mother who lost custody of her daughter to the person who abused her, her battle has been ongoing for approximately 16 years, with no solution. In Topeka, Kansas, Dombrowski’s home town, on October 11, 2011, members of the City Council voted and successfully repealed the city’s ordinance banning domestic violence during National Domestic Violence Awareness Month.   Dombrowski first brought the news of this to Intimate Partner Violence Prevention Specialist, Susan Murphy Milano around September 15, and she immediately took action by featuring the story on several national radio shows.

It was classic manipulation “101” presented in a live stream real …

A result of the new ruling, facing the consequences a victim could encounter when the abuser is arrested, then released, she advises victims not to call the police. She says, “You, as a survivor, know how to survive. You just keep surviving. If you call the police right now, and God forbid you end up with the city, you might die.” Knowing how victims of violence are already treated in an over burdened system, Dombrowski knows it will be even worse if offenders are not properly prosecuted. According to Kansas First News, “We know of three cases where judges have released the people accused of domestic violence …
