WILMINGTON, NC (WWAY) -- An organization that's been helping women and children in need celebrated a quarter century of service today. The Wilmington Domestic Violence Shelter and Services celebrated its 25th anniversary with a breakfast at the Hilton.

The shelter honored long-time supporters, as well as members of the original board of directors. Bobbie Jo Lineberger was the first president of the board. She said over the years a lot has been done to help rid Wilmington of domestic violence, but it still exists.

"I thought we would have solved the problem by now, and of course human nature being what it is, it's probably never going to happen," Lineberger said. "However, I think we are making a difference."

Today's celebration showcased a special quilt. Each patch represented a different donor.

Corruption in the legal system where attorneys and judges protect domestically violent doctors because they are doctors instead of following the evidence...............

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.
