Last year, SAVE sent a 10-page letter to the Department of Justice requesting that the DoJ remove a report filled with biased and erroneous statements. The report, Practical Implications of Current Domestic Violence Research by Andrew R. Klein, repeatedly downplays domestic violence against men, and openly recommends mandatory arrest policies. The flawed report can be seen here: http://www.ncjrs.gov/pdffiles1/nij/225722.pdf
Because the biases are so egregious, SAVE requested the report be immediately removed from public purview until every questionable statement could be reviewed by a scientifically-qualified third party. The SAVE letter can be seen here: http://www.saveservices.org/downloads/Data%20Quality%20Act
The letter was mailed on June 18, 2010, with proof of delivery. Seven months later, the DOJ has not replied to our request or removed it from its website.
Last Friday, a USA Today editorial revealed Attorney General Holder had falsely claimed that “Intimate partner homicide is the leading cause of death for African-American women ages 15 to 45.” And now a flawed report that no one at the DoJ will answer to! Contact Attorney General Holder TODAY:
Tell Attorney General Eric Holder that you are asking the Department of Justice to respond promptly to the SAVE request. Urge him to remove Practical Implications of Current Domestic Violence Research, and to establish a Task Force to review all domestic violence statements and claims on the DOJ website.
And since today is the second day of our week-long campaign, why not send him two messages? Politely, of course.
