Date: Nov. 20 - 22



The Birmingham News finds that the police in the municipal and county court system do not use all the legal tools at their disposal in investigating domestic violence cases; also found that warrants for the arrest of abusers are hard to get; judges do not always use tough sentencing or fines to show the seriousness of domestic violence and that counseling is not always available as part of sentencing even though it is crucial to stopping the violence.
