A nonprofit association that dubs itself Respecting Accuracy in Domestic Abuse Reporting (‘RADAR’) asserts that domestic violence laws, such as the federal Violence against Women Act, actually put women at greater risk of violence than they were before the statutes were enacted.
The organization further attributes to such laws the growing number of arrests of women on domestic violence charges and the rising number of protective orders taken out against women.
The group contends that domestic violence laws represent a governmental intrusion into people’s private lives and violate civil liberties, all for limited benefits.
According to a press release, the nonprofit characterizes itself as nonpartisan.
