“In 2002, having spent more than three years in one residence for the first time in my life, I got called for jury duty. I show up on time, ready to serve. When we get to the voir dire, the lawyer says to me, “I see you’re an astrophysicist. What’s that?” I answer, “Astrophysics is the laws of physics, applied to the universe—the Big Bang, black holes, that sort of thing.” Then he asks, “What do you teach at Princeton?” and I say, “I teach a class on the evaluation of evidence and the relative unreliability of eyewitness testimony.” Five minutes later, I’m on the street. A few years later, jury duty again. The judge states that the defendant is charged with possession of 1,700 milligrams of cocaine. It was found on his body, he was arrested, and he is now on trial. This time, after the Q&A is over, the judge asks us whether there are any questions we’d like to ask the court, and I say, “Yes, Your Honor. Why did you say he was in possession of 1,700 milligrams of cocaine? That equals 1.7 grams. The ‘thousand’ cancels with the ‘milli-’ and you get 1.7 grams, which is less than the weight of a dime.” Again I’m out on the street.”

Exactly.

“I teach a class on the evaluation of evidence and the relative unreliability of eyewitness testimony.” Five minutes later, I’m on the street.
This is a good illustration of what’s wrong with the US criminal justice system.

I’m more struck by the second anecdote, in which he was evidently disqualified from jury duty for displaying the ability to do math.

"While the majority of domestic violence victims are women, abuse of men happens far more often than you’d probably expect. Typically, men are physically stronger than women but that doesn’t necessarily make it easier to escape the violence or the relationship. An abused man faces a shortage of resources, skepticism from police, and major legal obstacles, especially when it comes to gaining custody of his children from an abusive mother. No matter your age, occupation, or sexual orientation, though, you can overcome these challenges and escape the abuse.
Abused men can also reach out to the following organizations for help:
U.S. and Canada: 1-888-7HELPLINE (1-888-743-5754) The Domestic Abuse Helpline
UK: 01823 334244 ManKind Initiative
Australia: One in Three Campaign offers a number of crisis hotlines”
Read more here: [X]
Oh and may it also be noted that Men are not the majority of domestic violence victims, according to the CDC. [x]
More info on Male Domestic Abuse Hotlines are here [x]
Learn about the signs of domestic abuse here [x]
Men Specific Domestic Abuse, not always physical [x]
I couldnt find any fundraisers for male victims of domestic abuse but I found plenty telling men they can stop it. If you know of anything people can donate to to help men, please put a link so others can help. Thank you.

Men who are victims of domestic abuse can call the same domestic violence hotlines as female victims:
New York City Domestic Violence Hotline1-800-621-HOPE (4673)
National Domestic Violence Hotline1-800-799-SAFE (7233)
With the exception of a few shelters that are congregate living settings, all domestic violence shelters in New York City are able to accommodate male victims.
Information and Support
Non-residential services such as counseling, support groups, legal assistance, advocacy and other services are also available for men.
Gay and Transgender men can access a full range of domestic violence services by calling the New York City Gay and Lesbian Anti-Violence Project Hotline at (212) 714-1141.
Straight men can obtain domestic violence services at most non-residential domestic violence programs in New York City. At some of these programs they may be welcome to join existing support groups. Because there are so few straight men coming forward for services, there are no programs operating support groups specifically for straight men.  Some men find women’s support groups helpful since their issues are the same, while others feel uncomfortable.
