On the federal level, my research showed that Joe Biden, now Vice-President, then Senator, has shepherded and held firm the passage of victim's rights acts since 1984, with the successful passage of the Comprehensive Crime Control Act. He is often quoted as saying that he considers the Violence Against Women Act the single most significant legislation that he crafted in his thirty-five-year tenure in the Senate. He was also instrumental in the domestic violence hotline. He also tried to get a bill passed to have a voluntary force of attorneys to help women victims of domestic violence. That was met with statements of being just another government giveaway. You know that when an alleged criminal is taken in ,he/she is told that if they don't have or cannot afford an attorney; one will be appointed for them? You don't hear that for the victim, do you, who desperately needs an attorney, but cannot afford one? . See what I mean when I say:
TAKE GOOD CARE OF YOURSELF?!!!!!!
