The Anaheim Street Community Police Center invites Long Beach residents to learn about domestic violence at its monthly meeting on Tuesday, April 20, from 5:00 to 6:30 pm at the Mark Twain Neighborhood Library Community Room, 1401 E. Anaheim St.

Domestic violence is not just a “private problem;” nearly one in four families, including children, partners, spouses, and seniors, are affected by domestic violence in some way, according to the California Attorney General’s Office.

Detective Fred Bloh, Ret. Long Beach Police Department, will explain the procedures for reporting domestic violence, filing a crime report, and how to obtain and enforce restraining orders.  

Interval House representatives Elvia Hurtado and Lorena Ponce will share resources available to domestic violence victims and their families, including emergency shelter and legal services.  Interval House provides crisis intervention and assistance to domestic violence victims, as well as individuals at risk for abuse.  Interval House also promotes violence prevention education through its many bilingual programs and services.

This free workshop will be presented in English with Spanish and Khmer translation.  Free parking is available in the library parking lot.

    Chevron gouged $24 billions in excessive profits in 2008, as per www. Schwarzenegger should put an excessive profits tax on these profits, instead of protecting the oil corporations from fair taxation, then, there would be sufficient public funds for all the vulnerable, people programs. Big business lost the fight to eliminate domestic violence funding, so now they are coming back with a vengeance. There is no funding provision for battered women shelters in the proposed budget. Schwarzee picks on the most vulnerable, and not on corporate “deadbeats.”

    SCHWARZENEGGER IS BAD NEWS AGAIN. It is against the law to physically harm another person, including wives. Schwarzenegger’s government is not enforcing this law. The funding priority for battered women shelters (BWS) should be the highest, because human is at risk, and because BWS’s keep the good people in, and the criminals and the murderers out. During a recession with its higher unemployment, government funding for BWS’s should be increased, not eliminated. The Governor’s proposed budget cuts, with the backing of Big Oil (Chevron Corp. of San Ramon), are very dangerous for women and children, who are victims of domestic violence and it is sub-human. Obviously, this budget picks on the most vulnerable, and it endangers children. If a battered wife is murdered in front of a closed-down BWS, because of these budget cuts, then, Schwarzenegger and his oil industry tyrants should be charged with first-degree murder and child endangerment, because that’s the law. If the mother suffers, then the children suffer.
