Domestic violence industry

People have sent me some outrageous materials about trends in domestic violence law enforcement. Eg, check out

There are stories about husbands being sent to jail based solely on a call from a busybody neighbor who heard an argument. This can apparently happen with no complaint or corroboration from the wife, and no physical evidence. The police, DAs, and judges treat men as guilty until proven innocent.

I guess I should be happy that my wife's domestic violence accusations are so lame. Yesterday, she showed up in court with her lawyer and her domestic violence support counselor. I guess that she wants the judge to think that she is afraid of me. Her lawyer acts like communications to my wife must go thru her lawyer. In reality, I see my wife on a daily basis. She showed up at 8:00 this morning to see the kids. She sometimes shows up unannounced and lets herself in.

My wife thinks that it is domestic violence for me to know when she is coming. In her domestic violence complaint to the court, she said:
29. George has an instrument which sends a laser beam across the driveway. When something crosses the laser beams pathway, it beeps. This way, George is alerted to visitors.
No, it is not a laser beam, it is just a cheap motion detector. I also have a doorbell which she refuses to use. Would it be domestic violence if I asked her to use the doorbell?
