it is really bad in Navajo County also. Restraining order are not ever enforced no matter how dangerous the situation the victim is always considered a liar. Charges of abuse against children and women are dropped without ever notifying the party involved. Even the womens shelter is a joke, I had the door slammed in my face and then twice begged for assistance with court and although they said they would show up no one ever did. It is ridiculous to even say there is any one to advocate for domestic violence victims, the only advocates were for the abuser, that was over and over again the case and is in nearly every case I have seen in Navajo County. Child abuse is just as bad as it is not taken seriously and the abuser is always the one exhalted as the innocent one. There is no one to help the victims of domestic violence/child abuse and there is no one that really cares to get involved either professionals or friends. It is a horrible situation to be in as I well know, going to court was even worse because he intimidated the people that I called to witness until none showed up then had people he knew get up and lie on the stand and I had to prove I hadn't done the things I was accused of. It is still a nightmare even after the divorce. Just yesterday he tried to run into me with my child in the car out on the highway and still watches my home constantly. I don't call anyone since it does no good. Glad they allow dangerous felons to carry guns and that no one cares about that either, makes me feel so safe, don't call the police because they don't care about that either.Oct 29, 2010
