As I sat with my jaw on the floor watching Amber swipe away at Gary on ‘Teen Mom,’ the first question I turned to ask my spouse was ‘I wonder if anyone will call this one in?’ The alleged domestic violence shown in a few of the episodes was enough to get my heart pounding—it was that raw.

Now that she has been officially charged, arrested, and bailed out, the next few months will be critical. Will she be hit with a harsh sentence? That will supposedly be determined at a hearing on February 28th. This week she apparently pleaded ‘not guilty’ to multiple felony charges stemming from her behavior while filming episodes of the last season of the show.

PEOPLE is reporting that she will in fact be reunited with her daughter while awaiting trial, while others maintain that she will not be allowed to see her just yet. Recent reports stated that child welfare officials will periodically check on her daughter (Leah) to ensure that she is in a safe, stable environment.

Her release is of course stipulated by an order of ‘no contact’ with Gary Shirley.

There are a few factors at play here. Amber was paid for the last season of the show, and may have some money put away. If that is the case, she could afford to have her lawyer stretch this thing out. Also, the issue of her mental health will likely come up. If you watched the last reunion episode, you’ll remember that Amber seemed completely despondent, and even said “I don’t care about myself.”

I was troubled by that comment, and remember thinking that I hope she would seek help. Her rage could be attributed to those issues, and may help her avoid doing any real prison time. Just a theory.

    Deaths of little children, killed by their mothers is egregious, yet the taxpayer funded, domestic violence industry disingenuously tries to make us believe that women don’t abuse men too. According to the U.S. Dept of Health and Human Services and DOJ statistics, more kids are killed by neglect and abuse in a year (1,760 in 2007), than all the female intimate partner homicides in a year. Mothers are the single largest group of kid killers, according to HHS, and they have a rate twice that of fathers. Nowhere near the money is spent to protect kids from kid killing mothers as is spent by the domestic violence industry to protect women. The taxpayer funded d.v. industry is a bastion of misandrist vilification, falsely accusing men of being the overwhelming cause of d.v., and empowering violent women to commit further domestic violence. The corruption of the taxpayer funded, domestic violence industry is characterized in “Los Misandry” at Youtube.

    Women’s domestic violence against men is grossly under reported, while male victims are still routinely being ignored by the taxpayer funded domestic violence industry. Credible research overwhelmingly shows that the ratio of domestic violence is at least 50/50 between women & men. Go to Fiebert Bibliography. According to one study by researchers who work at the CDC, in 70 percent of domestic violence incidents, where the d.v. is not mutual, it’s women who initiate the d. v. Go to Respecting Accuracy in Domestic Abuse Reporting. Click on the link under the red & blue pie chart. D.v. law follows a gender feminist agenda over facts & does great harm to many innocent men & also many violent women. Go to Youtube, “Los Misandry.”

    Domestic violence will never end as long as the whole truth about it is misrepresented to comply with feminist ideology. V.P. Biden recently called violence against women, “the very worst abuse.” The very worst abuse is valuing one life less than another for having been born the wrong gender. Under domestic violence law, the wrong gender is men. Shelter and services are virtually non-existent for male victims of domestic violence. Options out of a bad relationship, that women have, are often not available to men. Men wind up gender profiled and falsely accused by the taxpayer funded, domestic violence industry, because of gender feminist ideology controlling the d.v. industry. Men are often battered by domestic violence, and then battered again by the taxpayer funded, domestic violence industry as shown in “Los Misandry” at Youtube.
