History of Work on Domestic Violence

published on

Pro­fes­sor Lar­ry Sher­man dis­cuss­es his research on domes­tic vio­lence and the effect that arrest­ing the per­pe­tra­tor has on repeat offend­ing. A study done in Min­neapo­lis in 1981 showed that arrest­ing domes­tic abusers sig­nif­i­cant­ly reduced the like­li­hood of repeat offense. But fur­ther research revealed con­tra­dic­to­ry results, but these find­ings have been ignored by law­mak­ers.
