Maryland Domestic Violence Offender, Frank McCauley, Flogged at the Whipping Post - 1911

FULL TEXT: Baltimore, Md. — Frank McCauley, convicted wife-beater, suffered punishment for his crime despite the pleadings of his victim and helpmeet, when Sheriff Jack Hanson laid the lash across his bared back five times.

The first blow made him wince at the second, when Sheriff Hanson’s arm grew pliant a slight groan came from the victim’s lips. At the third his effort at control became more evident and his hoarse exclamation rose higher in the stillness of the jail. At the fourth stroke of the lash tears were streaming down McCauley’s face, but his nerve held.

With an angry hiss the cat-o’-nine-tails swept through the air for the final stroke. It made the last of the series of staring red welts upon the white flesh. This time there was no groan. Every muscle of the rigid body collapsed and McCauley hung for a moment, held only by the cords which bound his wrists to the cross.

In a second he revived and walked quietly back to the jail.

The jail physician declared after examination that he had suffered no serious shock.

• 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.
