OFK, a Bold New Proposal to Save Lives

by Jack Slade Sunday, Sep. 30, 2012 at 1:59 PM

When all else fails a new proposal appears. Fellow men beware The radical OFK proposal is getting a lot of praise from women.

At first OFK seems like an insane and radical approach. Women are pointing out that the current system is a total failure. They say a possible fix is better than the continuation of genocide of women in America.

The number one killer of women under the age of 34 isn't cancer or heart attacks or car accidents. It is domestic violence. Unable to free themselves without risking the lives of their children women find themselves in abusive situations for decades. As they age their options for freedom also diminish. Their egos are gone. Their sons have followed the power structure and have begun to beat the moms and sisters. The sisters go off and find a familiar lifestyle with an abuser of their own. The cycle increases and expands from generation to generation. There are estimates that more than two hundred women die every day from domestic violence. The official number is 46 deaths daily.

Raise the Fist has published the details of the proposed statutory Penal Code section 197.
Section 197:
197. Homicide is also justifiable when committed by any person in any of the following cases:
1.When resisting any attempt to murder any person, or to commit a felony, or to do some great bodily injury upon any person; or,
2.When committed in defense of habitation, property, or person, against one who manifestly intends or endeavors, by violence or surprise, to commit a felony, or against one who manifestly intends and endeavors, in a violent, riotous or tumultuous manner, to enter the habitation of another for the purpose of offering violence to any person therein; or,
3.When committed in the lawful defense of such person, or of a wife or husband, parent, child, master, mistress, or servant of such person, when there is reasonable ground to apprehend a design to commit a felony or to do some great bodily injury, and imminent danger of such design being accomplished; but such person, or the person in whose behalf the defense was made, if he was the assailant or engaged in mutual combat, must really and in good faith have endeavored to decline any further struggle before the homicide was committed; or,
4.When necessarily committed in attempting, by lawful ways and means, to apprehend any person for any felony committed, or in lawfully suppressing any riot, or in lawfully keeping and preserving the peace.
5.When committed by a victim of domestic violence directly against the perpetrator of that domestic violence within 50 years of the date of the commission of that provable act of domestic violence.

OFK is bold. It's goal is to save lives through making men think twice before using violence against women. Will it work? That's the key question.
