With all due respect to the Australian Human Rights Commission I cannot understand how they can/ why they would inadvertently discriminate against and inadvertently neglect child victims of women as well as male victims of women

"Rule of Law IS One Size Fits All"



"Solidarity with female criminality?"



"We need a system that protects the vulnerable, punishes the guilty and saves lives.
That's why I was joined this morning by Minister for the Prevention of Family Violence, Fiona Richardson, at Government House to formally present the letters patent to formally establish Australia's first Royal Commission into Family Violence to the Governor of Victoria. 

The biggest law and order issue in our state is unfolding in our homes. The Royal Commission will give us the answers we need and nothing will be off limits."

Victorian Premier Daniel Andrews

I do hope the Royal Commission into Family Violence acknowledges Male victims also if we are truly to "protect the vulnerable, punish the guilty and save lives."

Woman pleads guilty to stabbing death of cousin


A WOMAN who killed her cousin with a kitchen knife in a bizarre attack has dropped her self-defence claim and pleaded guilty to manslaughter.
After Rodney Leo Clark was evicted from her Ringwood home, Lisa Marie Clark, 40, unlocked the door and fatally stabbed him.
The duo had been arguing in the kitchen prior to the homicide on the evening of June 14 last year.
Ms Clark threatened her cousin, who had been drinking, with a kitchen knife and ordered he leave the premises after he assaulted Ms Clark’s partner and adult son, court documents state.
After Mr Clark - who was aged in his 40s - was ushered from the home, Ms Clark took the knife to the front door, which she unlocked and opened, and delivered the fatal stab to her cousin’s chest.
Mr Clark died at the scene.
Ms Clark told police she acted in self-defence when she stabbed the man, with whom she had a volatile relationship, a court heard earlier.
She pleaded guilty to manslaughter today at Melbourne Magistrates’ Court after prosecutors considered the plea deal overnight.
A murder charge against her was struck out.
She was remanded in custody to appear at the Supreme Court for a directions hearing next week.
Defence lawyer Marcus Dempsey said Ms Clark still suffered from depression and anxiety, though the conditions were no longer of concern.

Ringwood woman charged with murder acted in self-defence, court told

A woman charged with the murder of a man told police she had acted in self-defence when she fatally stabbed him, a court has heard.

Lisa Marie Clark, 40, is charged with the murder of Rodney Leo Clark in Ringwood on June 14. It has not been established in court the relationship between the pair.

Ms Clark told police she acted in self-defence when she stabbed Mr Clark once in the chest after he had forced his way into her bedroom and taken her phone, Melbourne Magistrates Court heard on Monday.

Defence counsel Marcus Dempsey said Ms Clark and Mr Clark had a volatile relationship and that on the day of the stabbing a witness overheard an argument between the pair and a man yell, "You're f...., Lisa. You're f....., you're f.....".

Mr Dempsey said Mr Clark had a tendency to force his way into Ms Clark's home.

But the court was also told another witness considered the accused to be the "neighbourhood menace" and an aggressor.

Ms Clark was remanded in custody to return to court in January for a two-day committal hearing.
