Hans Jacob Olson Lynched in Wisconsin for Chronic Domestic Violence Offenses - 1889

FULL TEXT: LaCrosse, Wis., Nov. 20.—Hans Jacob Olson was hanged to a tree near the town of Preston Sunday night by a mob and his wife and 17-year-old son were among those who pulled on the rope Olson was a morose and quarrelsome fellow, always at variance with his neighbors, and frequently beat his wife and children. He had served one year in the penitentiary, and upon his release made threats of revenge upon all who were concerned in his conviction. Being unable to give bond to keep the peace he was sent to the county jail for six months, and was released only last Tuesday. His first act upon reaching home was a fearful attack upon his son and his wife. The names of those who took part in the lynching, other that Olson's wife and son, have not been revealed and it is not probable that any steps will be taken to discover them.

• You have been told that before the rise of feminism in the 1960s that domestic violence against women was tolerated by society as acceptable behavior and was not taken seriously by police and the courts.

You have been lied to. The people who told you these lies were paid to tell them you. In most cases you paid your own money (taxes and tuition fees) to be lied to.

Here is one of countless pieces of evidence that demonstrate the truth.

• To see more eloquent, vivid evidence proving the lie and giving you the truth, see:

19th Century Intolerance Towards Domestic Violence

Treatment of Domestic Violence Against Women Before 1960this post collects cases classified by the form of punishment or sentencing (whether judicial or through community action)

No, the claim that laws created by males were for the benefit of males is false. Yes, the "Rule of Thumb" myth has been proven to be a marxist-feminist hoax, taking an ancient English common historical notation published in the 18th century and extrapolating it into unsupported claims that 18th and 20th century United States communities, courts and legislatures (laws on the books) were in agreement with the18th century historical notation (Blackstone).


“[O]nly since the 1970s has the criminal justice system begun to treat domestic violence as a serious crime, not as a private family matter.”

From the entry: “Domestic Violence” on

This claim has been proven to be false.
