Abuse to violence increasing?

What are the reason that abuse could be increasing to violence inthe US? could it be that we are doing more to stop it and amking the abusers angrier? could it be that rather then let them seek help they will hurt them first? What's going on????

Fairfield Citizen - Severity of Acts of Domestic Violence Increasing: "While verbal abuse, slapping, pushing, punching and threatening with guns or knives are more common, Hazzard said, arson 'is one more tool' that domestic abusers use to exercise control. 'We should be alarmed by all of them.'

'My court advocates have been saying for over a year that the violence is escalating,' she said. The number of violence incidents has not necessarily increased, she said, but the severity of the domestic violence is increasing."
