A drunken NYPD sergeant in Queens slashed his ex-girlfriend's tires and smashed her car windows before trying to speed away from responding officers, authorities said. Joseph DeMarco, a sergeant at the 102nd Precinct with 15 years on the force, faces up to one year in jail after he was charged with DWI, criminal mischief and resisting arrest. Cops on patrol at Woodhaven Boulevard and 69th Avenue - in the precinct next to DeMarco's -
Knife? Stabbing? Drunk? Running? Bleeding? 4a.m.?
From inside her house I'd think this looks life-threatening.
Thank you to the officers out on patrol - doing your jobs, who did the right thing and brought him in. Letting him go wouldn't help him get his life right. And who would know for sure - believe her - what level of danger his ex is in?
Who knows where a drunk stabber may want to go next?
Where is he now and what's different? Is he done with alcohol? Suspended or back at work? Where's his ex, is she an officer, is she safe? Does she have a place to turn for advocacy in the legal proceedings? Will he go to court, or will it disappear?
Will everyone be alright. Prayers for all.
