“A Group Of Beaters Of Wife Beaters”: Milwaukee - 1917

FULL TEXT: Milwaukee, Jan. 3 —The next wife beater brought into the district court will have to fight a man. A group of beaters of wife beaters is actually in existence and has been fostered by Judge Page.

The judge has more applicants for membership than he can accommodate, but is holding the list in reserve and some day a wife beater is going to get into a physical combat with a real adversary. Philip Schmidt was in court, charged with chasing his wife and four children into the street. It was while lecturing Schmidt that the judge spoke of his list of applicants to give physical retribution to wife beaters.

Schmidt blamed drink for his conduct. The judge placed him on probation. “The next time a wife beater comes, here I am going to turn one of my big scrappers on him and see how he likes it,” said the judge.

• 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 encyclopedia.com

This claim has been proven to be false.
