My sister recently stayed at the shelter,she went for help n protection from an abusive ex boyfriend.she was denied legal help, how is a victim supposed to get help if no one helps them. I'm disappointed in our legal system. So any day he will take kids from her because he has money to throw around n she does not. He's a drug addict n has a gang banger for a girlfriend. I guess our legal system is meant to help them not the victims.
