"Liberty House Executive Director Silke Deeley said "If we are going to start shaming people, putting pictures in the paper, we want to make sure that it's the perpetrators of the violence and not the victims."
The Grand Jury also recommended that "a fine be imposed for every police call where there is a viable charge and an arrest made for domestic violence."
Advocates say they don't know if even fines and shaming will stop domestic abusers.
Deeley said "They have to realize what they are doing is wrong. It's criminal, and that they are going to have to seek some help to alter their behaviour. And if that doesn't happen, you can shame them all day long." "
