I just don't understand, the Crimes Act is meant to take precedence, but in seems like it's ok when men commit crimes like abuse and perjury because it's framed as though they are rational men pushed too far and their abuse is justified. Not for women. We are told to keep a poker face on (whatever that means) throughout all of the lies and abuse, but if we kept it too emotionless, we'd probably end up being treated the way Lindy Chambelen was and seen as cold. You can't ever win as a women in Court.
You carry your child, risk your health, your life, to bring your child into the world safely and in health, give your life protecting them, then for some person that doesn't know you or your children at all tell you when you can and can't see your child.
I have chosen to live by some things in the bible, such as; if you can lie about the little things, you can lie about the big things. When I swear in my affidavit, you best believe every word is true, and when an officer of the Court continues to openly lie, it puts everyone in danger. He shows no respect for me, the Courts, or his profession, and more should have been done to protect us from his dishonesty and all of the abuses of his position in power, but it wasn't.
It's a dangerous and terrifying world our "legal" system. They're meant to protect us, but the abusers and perpetrators are the ones being protected, especially the ones with influence inside the system. I just need one good guy with power that isn't afraid to stop what he's doing to us. That values our lives and won't let him and his dad hurt us anymore.
