My friend is a victim of domestic violence. A couple of months ago the person that has been abusing her jumped on her and was trying to hurt her. My friend tried to defend herself. When the cops arrived my friend would not talk to them because she was afraid and the person that was trying to hurt her showed the police scratches on his face that my friend put there when she was trying to push him off and said that she was attacking him. My friend was arrested on domestic battery. The police contacted child protective services and a order of protection was issued for her to stay away from him. He used this against her. She wanted to stay away but he made sure she received the message that if she didn't talk he would make sure she goes to jail.Is she did what he asked, he wouldn't cooperate, the charges would be dropped and she will not lose her children. Since this event he has really began to beat her bad. It's like it gave him more power over her than he already had. Last night he beat her really bad and has been threatening her. She is afraid to go home for fear of him. She has been sleeping in her car, but she is terrified of the police. It's so sad. She views them as the enemy that will only help him victimize her by arresting her. I'm afraid he is really going to hurt her but there is nothing I can do. She will disappear if I call the cops. How can I help her. She is so afraid of the police that when he now beats her she doesn't even attempt to defend herself again.
