Male victims of domestic violence don't go to the police....
Notice the incredible bias against men from the Stats Canada people.
Most victims of spousal violence only report the abuse to police once -- even though the violence frequently involves multiple incidents, a new report has revealed.We know from previous reports that domestic spousal abuse is equal between the sexes....but it is now clear that few men report spousal abuse. Note how Stats Canada wants to spin it - saying that women without children are least likely to turn to police....but shouldn't it be men who are the least likely???
The Statistics Canada study, which is based on police records from 1994-2005, shows that eight out of 10 offenders were reported only once.
Women are twice as likely to report abuse than men, and aboriginals more likely than non-aborginals, the report says.
Those aged 15 to 24 were most likely to report spousal violence to the police, while those aged 35 and older were least likely to go to police.
The violence is also more likely to be reported if children are witnesses to the violence, or if a person has had contact with a social-service agency in the past.
Appearing on Newsnet, Karen Mihorean, of Statistics Canada, said "women without children are least likely to turn to police."
In general, Mihorean said, women are "twice as likely as men to report to police, simply because women are more likely to experience violence."
