Domestic Violence Is Not The Victim's Fault
Bee Editorial

Last month, video footage surfaced of National Football League player Ray Rice delivering a knockout punch to his fiancee. Last week, a Buffalo man shot and killed his wife in the street before turning the gun on himself. Police said the couple had a history of domestic violence.

October is National Domestic Violence Awareness Month, and you do not have to look hard to find examples of such abuse in society. When we hear of such incidents, it can be easy to ask, “Why does the victim stay in the relationship?” Yet Mary Travers Murphy, executive director of the Family Justice Center, said that is the wrong question to be asking. Instead, of putting responsibility on the victim, we need to ask why the perpetrator continues to abuse.

Family Justice Center Has New Tools To Fight Domestic Abuse
Catherine Colmerauer - Lancaster Bee

Last year, more than 14,000 domestic violence police calls were made in Erie County. However, only one in seven cases of domestic abuse is reported. The rest remain behind closed doors. Mary Travers Murphy, executive director of the Family Justice Center of Erie County, has a message for those suffering in silence. “We have your back. This is not your fault,” said Murphy. “Nobody deserves to be in an abusive relationship.” In addition to its headquarters in the City of Buffalo, the Family Justice Center has two satellites: one at 4383 S. Buffalo St. in Orchard Park, and its newest on North Forest Road in Williamsville.
