    Emotional abuse is still a form of abuse

    and I think should be treated as a crime. No one has any right to emotionally abuse anyone or abuse anyone in any other kind of way. It's a crime and should be treated as such.

    I Believe...

    People this dumb should be shot. How do you convict a person of an emotional abuse? How do you ensure that it is not just an over sensitive person who is complaining? Who decides what abuse is? Many people I have been accused of being "mean" by, have just hated the fact that...

    It Should Be Punished

    I tend to think emotional and verbal abuse go hand in hand. I dealt with it from my family and in a couple of relationships I was in. Anytime I had a feeling of any sort I would be told I was imagining it, making it up, they even called me crazy. My family went to the point of...

    It should be a crime.

    ...physical abuse is a crime, why not this ? the scars and damage it leaves and not for a while, but for a life time. It changes lives forever, and some can put it away where it does not hurt them totally, while others fight with it on a daily basis. it causes people to...

    I Was Emotionally Abused In School

    My story is a little different. Most of the stories about emotional or mental abuse come from individuals who were abused by family members. At school I was a victim of emotional abuse from one teacher and by my peers. When I was in 3rd grade, I had the teacher for hell. For some...

    Worse Than Physical Abuse

    And probably worse. Unlike being beaten physically, being beaten emotionally doesn't leave a visible bruise only an emotional one. This is why its not viewed as a crime. There has to be visible evidence for something to be treated as a crime. Meanwhile, so many people are...
