Domestic violence funding

It is the government’s duty to protect citizens and to ensure their well-being.
Schwarzenegger is not doing this.

The funding priority for domestic-violence shelters should be the same as for prisons, since prisons keep the criminals in and shelters keep the good people in and the criminals out.

During a recession and higher unemployment, government funding for shelters should be increased, not decreased or eliminated.
The governor’s illegal budget cuts, with the backing of the oil industry (Chevron Corp. of San Ramon), are very dangerous for the women and children who are victims of domestic violence, and it is sub-human.

Obviously, this budget picks on the most vulnerable.

If a battered woman is murdered because of these cuts, then Schwarzenegger and his oil industry backers should be charged with first-degree murder.
