Lao Hu Comments
The family is the cell of society, and its harmony is closely related to and inseparable from the peace of society and people's happiness.
Domestic violence seriously infringes on the personal rights of family members, especially women and children. It not only endangers the physical health and even life safety of the victims, but also causes unhealable psychological trauma to other family members, especially young children, and leaves indelible traumas. shadow.
At the same time, domestic violence often triggers criminal cases and harms social harmony and stability.
The reason for this is that the frequent occurrence of domestic violence is due to the fact that some family members, especially husbands who have physical advantages in the relationship between husband and wife, cannot properly handle family conflicts and husband-to-wife relationships in a rational and tolerant spirit, blindly suspicion and suspicious. If they don't go well, they use other family members as a "punching bag", even drinking and making troubles and fighting.
On the other hand, due to the concealment of domestic violence, it is difficult to obtain evidence and to investigate and deal with, which makes some law enforcement and judicial departments perfunctory and reluctant to intervene. Some grassroots organizations also have a fear of difficulty, believing that it is difficult for a clean official to judge housework. It is too hard to avoid violence.
Domestic violence cannot be investigated and dealt with in a timely and rigorous manner, which objectively gives domestic violence victims an opportunity.
Therefore, we should first carry out in-depth publicity and education of the new style of civilized families in the whole society, popularize psychological knowledge, do a good job in alleviating social psychology and emotions, and lead family members to mutual understanding and accommodation, living in harmony, and treating them with a rational and tolerant heart. Deal with the contradictions and disputes encountered in daily life, and avoid verbal abuse or beating people.
Secondly, both law enforcement and judicial departments and grassroots organizations should take an active role to eliminate fear of difficulties, get rid of the idea that "upright officials are difficult to cut off domestic affairs", actively intervene in and deal with domestic violence in a timely manner, and resolutely punish those who constitute crimes. , To effectively protect the personal rights of victims from infringement.
