My name is Myra Spearman and I am a survivor of domestic abuse. For 18 years, I lived in an abusive marriage; after I left I was stalked relentlessly for 4 years. Now, I'm spearheading a global effort to help victims around the world recognize and prevent domestic abuse from happening to them.
In 2007, I created, The Weaker Vessel, Inc. Which is the Nation’s first “Registry of Domestic Violence Offenders “. (www.domesticviolencedatabase.org) Now women and their families can go online to see if they’re dating someone who’s been predatory, violent and abusive in past relationships.
With the member base of on-line social networking sites such as myspace.com and on-line dating services such as match.com reaching the 200 million member mark, domestic and family abuse which has already exploded will continue to climb. No one seems to be taking on the cumbersome tasks of making sure their date is who they say they are.
We have patterned The Weaker Vessel, Inc. after Megan’s Law which is the Sex Offenders Registry. Our site provides a comprehensive overview which contains the conviction records of offender who have been found guilty of domestic abuse, stalking, criminal confinement, intimidation, strangulation, domestic battery etc.
We provide this data free of charge and to the general public. Most other sites charge a fee for service or will ask for case numbers. This is what I know, when a new relationship is formed, most individuals will tell you what they want you to know about them. Often times, it is not the truth. Will they ever give you a case number or case details if they were abusive in a past relationship? I think not. That part of their past will stay hidden until it is unleashed on you, at that point you’ve become the next victim.
Be smart, be careful, know all there is to know about your date. If something doesn't look right, it probably isn't, walk away before it's too late.
CHECK YOUR MATE BEFORE YOU DATE.
