Domestic Abuse Is a Crime! This Victim Speaks Out to Help Others (Distressing Video)

Domestic violence has totally spiraled out of control in the U.S., and is a serious, growing problem worldwide.

“The number of American troops killed in Afghanistan and Iraq between 2001 and 2012 was 6,488. The number of American women who were murdered by current or ex male partners during that time was 11,766. That’s nearly double the amount of casualties lost during war.” (30 Shocking Domestic Violence Statistics That Remind Us It’s An Epidemic)

Gale Maloney, known as Dawn, suffered domestic abuse for years from her husband, Michael John Gregory, who is now 77.

In October 2013, Dawn rang 999 on the Isle of Wight, England, reporting an assault by her husband. When the police responded to the house, they were wearing Body-Worn Video cameras and recorded the injuries to Dawn.

The video contains some very distressing images. Dawn was nearly killed this time, and one of the attending officers stated he had never seen injuries as severe as the ones she suffered.

Gregory pleaded guilty to the assault and was sentenced to 10 years in prison by the Portsmouth Crown Court in May this year.

Dawn is now attempting to put her life back together.

One in four will be the victim of severe violence by their partner in their lifetime.

This epidemic, this unconscionable criminal abuse against women must end.

Having had many eclectic experiences and expressing interest in so many varied things in life has suited my role as Editor-in-Chief of Vision Times. Being trained in the sciences, I worked in the medical field. Scuba diving was a passion, being part owner of a scuba shop, and I enjoyed diving around the world. Raising reptiles of all sorts, including poisonous snakes, was also one of my hobbies when living in the U.S. After moving to Australia in the 80s, I became an avid organic grower of tropical fruits and vegetables, which my wife and I partake of year-round, as well as many of our friends. My newest endeavor has been to become a “bikie” — an eBikie, which I do every day not only to get exercise, but also to have a break from slaving over my computer most of the day. Obviously, China is also a passion, which is something VT specializes in, so I feel very fortunate to have a role here at Vision Times.
