    I think all we can do is educate, educate our sons, our nephews, our colleagues, our cousins, our brothers. Educate them with respect, tolerance and acceptance. Acceptance that women are equal to men, that under no circumstance should you lay a hand on a woman or child. Violence will NOT be tolerated.

    The news was saying 1200 dvo's on the Gold Coast were breached last year I think it was.

    It's really made me sad.
    Every time they breach they get a court date, then a fine. Like a speeding fine. The fine increases each time. Im guessing they probably don't pay the fines so in a way they are just gettimg away with it.

    They definitely do not always get a fine. Often for a first time breach they will get a warning by the magistrate.

    Also they do not get a court date every time time they breach. If they have breached multiple times in a short period while police are investigating the original breach, they will often roll it into one breach when going to court . I.e 5 different breaches over 7 days- go to court , convicted of a breach of a DVO , warned to abide by DVO in future .

    As I said they are pretty much getting away with it.

    Safe to say everyone's experience is different. Im assuming it also changes state to state.
    Not looking for an argument just simply stating my own personal experience

    I've always thought that those who breach orders should have tracking bracelets and their partners should also have a tracker and then they are monitored and police are alerted to attend the location once they get within a certain distance of each other.

    I'm sure it isn't as simple as I make it sound but even if it isn't a deterrent it might get these women help before its to late.

    Or maybe a GPS monitored panic button.

    Wow how ridiculous, I didn't realize the breaches were so prevalent. These poor women and children :-(

    Hopefully the new dv court opening up on the gc next month will make a difference. It has to.

    It's so incredibly sad, and unnecessary . We need to break the cycle and there needs to be more support for all involved- men and women.

    I really think there needs to be more money spent on mental health. surely someone in the right mind would not run his partner off the road and then beat the life out of her. ? !! I think it is a good move to have teachers made more aware of possible dv situations amongst their school children. my heart is so sad for all these families, and for the many more who we know nothing about. marie.
