Uniform Crime Report Shows Increase in Domestic Violence for Morristown

Drops in many crimes reported; annual report details offenses by municipality.

Patch has just received the latest Uniform Crime Report from the New Jersey State Police.

Several numbers saw a drop from 2008 to 2009 in Morristown, including the overall crime index, reported violent crimes, larceny and aggravated assault. The murder rate, which was listed as 1 in 2008, was reported as 0 in 2009.

Reported domestic violence, however, was the only reported increase, going from 179 in 2008 to 206 in 2009.

Overall, Morris County saw drops in both violent and non-violent crime from 2008 to 2009, according to the report. Total crimes throughout the county dropped from 6,220 in 2008 to 5,980 in 2009. Violent crime dropped from 430 to 387. Non-violent crime dropped from 5,790 to 5,593. The 2008 figures also reflect drops from 2007.

From 2008 to 2009, Morris County saw drops in most individual types of crime, but small increases in rapes in domestic violence incidents. "In Morris County, we have enjoyed a steady and significant decrease in overall crime since 2007," Morris County Prosecutor Robert A. Bianchi said. "While no statistics tell the whole story, undoubtedly this is in part a direct result of the professional law enforcement services that are provided to our citizenry countywide by the local police agencies."

Bianchi said he and police chiefs around the county have partnered to develop "extremely successful countywide policing  strategies which follow an intelligence-led policing model."

Bianchi said his office and other law enforcement had specifically targeted the most serious and prolific offenders in the county. "I am proud of the law enforcement services that we provide in Morris County and look forward to continuing to strengthen the delivery of the services we provide to our taxpayers," he said.  

A call to the Morristown Police Department seeking comment has not yet been returned.

Women's domestic violence against men is grossly under reported, while male victims are still routinely being ignored by the taxpayer funded domestic violence industry. Credible research overwhelmingly shows that the ratio of d.v. is at least 50/50 between women & men. http://tinyurl.com/3sakk According to one study by researchers who work at the CDC, in 70% of domestic violence incidents, where the domestic violence is not mutual, it's women who initiate the domestic violence. http://tinyurl.com/yzm9xhe The taxpayer funded domestic violence industry has largely mischaracterized the true nature of d.v. from the beginning and continues to mislead the public. D.V. law follows a gender feminist agenda/ideology over facts in evidence and does great harm to many innocent men (and also many battering women who need help) as shown in "Los Misandry" http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=SAmOxvudpF8

What about the little children? They are least able to contend with domestic violence in their families. According to the U.S. Dept of Health and Human Services and DOJ statistics, more kids are killed by neglect and abuse in a year (1,760 in 2007), than all the female intimate partner homicides in a year. Mothers are the single largest group of kid killers, according to HHS and they have a rate twice that of fathers. Nowhere near the money is spent to protect kids from kid killing mothers as is spent by the domestic violence industry to protect women. A lot of innocent men are witch-hunted by the corrupt, gender feminist influenced, taxpayer funded, domestic violence industry. Involving the corrupt d.v. industry in an attempt to prevent abusive and neglectful deaths of children is a big mistake. No place better characterizes the corruption of the taxpayer funded, domestic violence industry than "Los Misandry" at Youtube.

V.P. Biden recently called violence against women, "the very worst abuse." The very worst abuse is valuing one life less than another for having been born the wrong sex. Under Biden's Violence Against Women Act the wrong sex is men. Shelter and services are virtually non-existent for male victims of domestic violence so those options out of a bad relationship, that are routinely available to women, are very often not available to men. Men wind up gender profiled and often falsely accused by the taxpayer funded, d.v. industry, because of gender feminist ideology controlling the d.v. industry. Men are often battered by domestic violence, and then battered again by the taxpayer funded, domestic violence industry as shown in "Los Misandry" at Youtube.
