Why I Sponsor False Domestic Violence Charge Awareness Month?

Disclaimer: This article is in response to questions frequently asked of Mr. Cobb and is an unedited dictation transcript. Just like talk to text on your smartphone, there may be misspelled words or sentence fragments.

Recently, I did my annual video about June being False Domestic Violence Charge Awareness Month. And guess what, it was not popular and I received all of your comments, all of your snarky online social media posts, the whole gamut. And you know what, many of you want to know how I could be so insensitive to domestic violence victims as to sponsor false domestic violence charge awareness month because we know there are no false claims of domestic violence.

Well, let’s run to those two different points. Number one, first of all, yes there are false domestic violence charge reports. I see them on a regular basis. And you have probably seen them in real life as well when somebody makes a false allegation. And secondly, let’s talk a little bit about this victim worshipping that is going on because when I was 3.5 years old, that was my first childhood memory and it was my father drunkenly knocking my mother to the ground. From the time I was 3.5 years old until the last time I was attacked by my father at 23 years of age, I was literally raised for two decades in the middle of what could be described as nightly domestic violence. So, you know why I sponsor false domestic violence charge awareness month because as a victim, when somebody makes a false domestic violence charge, my head practically explodes.

And here is another thing people are not talking about, and that is the gender dynamics. Domestic violence can happen to men, domestic violence can happen to women but what are we actually seeing in the courtrooms? We are seeing men charged and we are seeing women charged at nowhere near the numbers on the theory that they are not as often a perpetuator of domestic violence when, in fact, they are. I see it on a regular basis and so do many others. So, for those of you who felt the necessity to clat back at me for sponsoring false domestic violence charge awareness month, I do not want to hear it and I do not care what you think or have to say about it. I am going to continue sponsoring false domestic violence charge awareness month because it absolutely infuriates me that people would take a crime so personal, so painful, the scars on the outside heal but anybody who has ever been through real domestic violence, they will tell you these are scars on the inside that take a lot longer to heal, that is why I sponsor false domestic violence charge awareness month because that needs to end. This whole idea that you can run down and win a divorce or run down and solve a dispute by calling the police and 911, whoever makes it first wins, that needs to end. So, no, we are not going to stop sponsoring it. In fact, we are going to continue sponsoring it. And if you are aware of someone who has been falsely accused of domestic violence, the accuser needs to be the one arrested but you know what, you are almost never going to see that.
