Domestic Violence Day

The BBC is running a Domestic Violence Day, which aims to raise awareness about abuse in the home. It includes articles about the experiences of one woman at the hands of an abusive husband, the plight of Asian women and, most interestingly, the use by the police of head cameras in a bid to tackle anti-social behaviour and violence in the home. I agree that when they see the film shot by such cameras perpetrators of domestic violence (many of whom still behave aggressively when the police arrive) are more likely to admit their behaviour, and if they don't then the film will be good evidence against them.
