Protecting the falsely accused

April 07, 2010

I agree that the General Assembly should pass the bill to protect those falsely accused of domestic violence ("Bill would shield those falsely accused of domestic violence," April 7).

First of all, it allows the wrongly accused to go on with their lives and not live in shame when they didn't do anything wrong in the first place. Second of all, the wrongly accused don't always want everything that happens to them to be open for the world to see. Finally, those who were wrongly accused can move on with their lives, but the true victims of domestic violence can get the help that they need from others.

After reading this I believe that this bill will help the victims that need help to get it and the falsely accused to have the privacy that the need.
