COMPLICITY OF ABUSE IN MEDIA'S FAILURE TO ASK


OPEN LETTER TO OHIO AND PENNSYLVANIA MEDIA.

I AM WRITING YOU FROM TACOMA WASHINGTON WHERE OUR POLICE CHIEF DAVID BRAME FATALLY SHOT HIS WIFE CRYSTAL AND HIMSELF, IN A PUBLIC PARKING LOT WITH THEIR SMALL CHILDREN RUNNING TO THE SCENE.

IN THE AFTERMATH THERE WAS COMMUNITY GRIEF, OUTRAGE AND, MOST IMPORTANTLY, CHANGES. TACOMA POLICE CREATED AN OFFICER-INVOLVED DOMESTIC VIOLENCE POLICY. A WASHINGTON STATE LAW WAS ENACTED TO MANDATE THAT EACH LAW ENFORCEMENT AGENCY IN OUR STATE HAVE A SPECIFIC LIKE-POLICY IN PLACE. AND FEDERAL LEGISLATION WAS PASSED EXTENDING THE VIOLENCE AGAINST WOMEN ACT TO INCLUDE MILLIONS IN GRANT MONEY FOR DEPARTMENTS WANTING TO BE PROACTIVE FOR POLICE FAMILY'S FACING DOMESTIC ISSUES.

OUR NEWS MEDIA, THE TACOMA NEWS TRIBUNE - AND THE NEARBY PRESS - SEATTLE POST INTELLIGENCER NEVER LET UP THROUGHOUT. FROM DAY ONE THEY ASKED THE HARD QUESTIONS AND PRINTED THE ANSWERS. THEY FORCED THE FACTS INTO PUBLIC VIEW.

THE MORE PAINFUL FACTS WE RECEIVED FROM THE MEDIA, THE MORE PEOPLE HERE WERE COMMITTED TO MAKING THINGS BETTER FOR THE LIVING.

THAT IS WHY I AM WRITING YOU.

WATCHING THE MEDIA FLURRY AROUND THE DISAPPEARANCE AND EVENTUALLY THE MURDER OF OHIO'S JESSIE DAVIS - MOTHER OF CANTON POLICE OFFICER BOBBY CUTTS' SON - THERE WAS A CLEAR OMISSION. NOT ONE OF THE ARTICLES WAS ADDRESSING JESSIE AS A VICTIM OF DOMESTIC VIOLENCE - NOT EVEN IN HER DEATH. NOT EVEN AS OFFICER CUTTS' PRE-EMPLOYMENT DV ACCUSATIONS AROSE. NOT EVEN AS ANOTHER MOTHER OF ANOTHER OF HIS CHILDREN WENT PUBLIC WITH HER ACCUSATIONS OF HIS ABUSE. NIKKI GIAVASIS MADE HER PUBLIC STATEMENTS ABOUT DOMESTIC ABUSE ISSUES WITH OFFICER CUTTS THAT SPANNED THE YEARS, INCLUDING SHE SAID, A PROTECTION ORDER AGAINST HIM IN 2007.

DID JESSIE NEED OR TRY TO GET HELP? SHARE FEARS WITH SOMEONE CLOSE TO HER? NEITHER HAS ANY OHIO REPORTER CLEARED THE AIR BY SAYING THAT JESSIE NEVER SAW IT COMING. FOR THIS READER IT'S A GAPING, SUSPICIOUS OMISSION.

OHIO MEDIA ALSO DIDN'T ASK HOW CUTTS COULD HAVE BECOME A POLICE OFFICER WITH PRIOR DV ON HIS RECORD OR HOW HE COULD KEEP HIS GUN AND BADGE WITH CURRENT DV PROTECTION ORDERS.

WHO IS ACCOUNTABLE IN CANTON POLICE DEPARTMENT FOR IGNORING THE BEHAVIORS, THAT UNCHECKED, ULTIMATELY CREATED A COP THAT THOUGHT HE COULD GET AWAY WITH ANYTHING? WHO WERE THE PARTIES THAT TOGETHER REINFORCED OFFICER CUTTS' DELUSIONS OF INVINCIBILITY, LEADING UP TO THIS ULTIMATE AND IRREVERSIBLE HARM?

YOU MUST ASK THE QUESTION: WHERE WERE THE POINTS OF POSSIBLE INTERVENTION?

ANOTHER QUESTION THAT MUST BE ASKED: JUST HOW MUCH OF THE DOMESTIC ABUSE IN THE LIFE OF OFFICER CUTTS, NIKKI GIAVASIS, JESSIE DAVIS, AND OTHER WOMEN WAS KNOWN BY THE CANTON POLICE DEPARTMENT?

AS JESSIE'S STORY EMERGED PITTSBURGH ALREADY HAD IT'S OWN HIGH PROFILE COP DOMESTIC ABUSE TURMOIL IN PROGRESS PUBLICLY. THE PITTSBURGH POLICE DEPARTMENT AND MAYOR WERE MAKING NATIONAL NEWS FOR THEIR COLLABORATIVE PROMOTIONS OF 3 OFFICERS WHO HAD DOMESTIC VIOLENCE IN THEIR RECORDS - EITHER PAST OR PENDING. PASSING OVER OFFICERS WITH CLEAN RECORDS TO LIFT THESE THREE IN PAY AND PRESTIGE CAUSED BOTH COMMUNITY OUTRAGE AND MEDIA INVESTIGATION.

A FEW PENNSYLVANIA ARTICLES INITIALLY PROVIDED HOPE TO VICTIMS OF OFFICER-INVOLVED DOMESTIC ABUSE WHO WERE WATCHING THIS ALL CLOSELY. THOSE ARTICLES STEPPED BEYOND THE BORDERS OF THEIR LOCAL PROBLEM AND IN A FEW ARTICLES TIED PITTSBURGH 'S POLICE SCANDAL - OF COPS WHO COMMIT CRIMES - TO OHIO'S OFFICER CUTTS AND OTHER NATIONAL PUBLIC SAFETY WORKERS.

BUT THE HOPE WAS SHORT LIVED. NOT ONE ARTICLE DELVED INTO FEARFUL LIFE VICTIMS EXPERIENCE - OR THE ENHANCED FEARS THAT THE VICTIMS OF OFFICER-INVOLVED DOMESTIC VIOLENCE VICTIMS FACE. INSTEAD, THOSE FEW ARTICLES WERE ABOUT THE OFFICER'S STRESS, OFFICER SUICIDES, OFFICERS RISK OF LOSING THEIR JOBS. ONLY TWO SENTENCES ACKNOWLEDGED HARM TO THOSE WHO WERE THEIR VICTIMS:
..."MURDER-SUICIDES AMONG POLICE OFFICERS ARE ON THE RISE, DOUGLAS SAID. IN THE LAST TWO YEARS, HE KNOWS OF 22 CASES NATIONWIDE." (1.)

THE CONCEPT OF POLICE DOMESTIC CRIMES HAVING VICTIMS WITH FACES, NAMES, OR NIGHTMARES NEVER DEVELOPED.

NO REPORTER IN PENNSYLVANIA STEPPED OUT TO CONCEPTUALIZE THE "STRESS" OF LIVING WITH AN ARMED ABUSIVE OFFICER.

WHEN ONE OF PITTSBURGH'S NEWLY-PROMOTED OFFICERS HAD HIS KNOWN VICTIM [DAUGHTER] AND WIFE COME INTO COURT - BEFORE HIS CRIMINAL HEARING BEGAN - TO PLEAD WITH THE JUDGE TO DROP THE CHARGES, THE NEWS WAS PRESENTED ONLY MATTER-OF-FACTLY. SEEMS IT WAS ENOUGH FOR THE PRESS THAT A YOUNG GIRL WHO HAD BEEN PUNCHED IN THE STOMACH, SLAPPED SEVERAL TIMES BY HER FATHER, AND WHO ENDED UP AT THE HOSPITAL SEEKING RELIEF FROM HER PAIN, WOULD - OF HER OWN FREE WILL - ASK THE JUDGE TO LIFT THE ABUSE CHARGE OFF OF HER FATHER.

THE JUDGE GRANTED THIS TO HER AND HER MOTHER.

YOU HAVE THE PEN IN YOUR HAND.

DID ANYONE EVEN EDITORIALIZE TO ASK
- HOW DID HIS DAUGHTER ARRIVE AT HER DECISION?
- HOW MANY VICTIMS LIKE HER ARE THERE?
- WHERE CAN SHE TURN FOR HELP OR SAFETY?

NO ONE COULD PICK IT UP FOR THE SAKE OF ALL THE DAUGHTERS LIKE HER WHO CAN'T SAY A WORD? -- ALL THE VICTIMS LIKE HER - MALE, FEMALE, INCLUDING SOME WHO ARE OFFICERS THEMSELVES - WHO ALL FOLLOWED THE PITTSBURGH NEWS OF A DAUGHTER'S SELF-DEVALUING RECANT?

OFFICER-INVOLVED DOMESTIC ABUSE IS NOT A VICTIMLESS CRIME.

VICTIMS ARE NOT BACKDROP INCIDENTALS TO OFFICERS' LIVES. THEY ARE PEOPLE WITH FEW IF ANY OPTIONS, TRAPPED IN A CALDRON NO ONE DARES TO LIFT THE LID FROM.

THEY ARE ABANDONED.

IS THERE NO COMPLICITY OF ABUSE IN THE MEDIA'S FAILURE TO ASK? HOW IRRESPONSIBLE IS IT OF THE PRESS TO DELIBERATELY BE SILENT IN THE FACE OF THE OBVIOUS? DON'T REPORTERS HAVE DAUGHTERS? DON'T THEY HAVE SOME SORT OF RESPONSIBILITY TO OUR COMMUNITY'S VOICELESS IN HARMS WAY?

AREN'T WE OUR SISTER'S KEEPERS?

AS TIMIDLY EVASIVE, SHALLOW, AND UNSYMPATHETIC AS PITTSBURGH MEDIA WAS TO THE [ALLEGED] VICTIMS OF THEIR PROMOTED OFFICERS, STILL THEY DID BETTER THAN OHIO. THE OHIO REPORTER WHO HAS PERHAPS WRITTEN THE MOST LOCALLY ON JESSIE DAVIS WROTE THE FOLLOWING IN WHAT APPEARS TO BE CLOSURE, AFTER THE ASSIGNED NATIONAL REPORTERS PACKED UP TO GO HOME:

"...LAST WEEK, I WAS READY TO TURN THE PAGE ON THIS WHOLE SITUATION BECAUSE IT HAS HAD A PROFOUND EFFECT ON ME. BUT THERE WERE TWO FAIRLY LARGE BOXES ADDRESSED TO ME FROM THE VERMONT TEDDY BEAR COMPANY... THERE ARE REAL PEOPLE WHOSE LIVES WILL NEVER BE THE SAME BECAUSE OF WHAT HAPPENED TO JESSIE DAVIS. AS SAD AS THIS WHOLE STORY HAS BEEN, THERE'S HOPE HERE, TOO... MAYBE WHAT I'VE LEARNED MORE THAN ANYTHING ELSE, BASED ON THE HUNDREDS OF E-MAILS SENT TO MY INBOX, IS PEOPLE, LOTS OF THEM, ARE GENERALLY GOOD AND CARING..." (2.)

IT'S A WRAP, SUMMARIZED IN A BOX OF TEDDY BEARS.

YOU ARE YOUR SISTER'S KEEPER.

PLEASE FORGIVE WHAT MAY APPEAR HERE TO BE ANGER. IT IS ACTUALLY DEEP DISAPPOINTMENT, A SOCIAL SORROW THAT THIS OPPORTUNITY TO VALIDATE AND SAVE LIVES WAS NOT DRAWN FROM JESSIE'S MURDER. IT COULD HAVE MADE HER DEATH MEAN SOMETHING MORE THAN A PASSING STORY.

TACOMA, WASHINGTON

TWO LISTS: COP DV IN PA & OH

THESE TWO LISTS BELOW ONLY REPRESENT CASES I HAVE FOUND IN THE PENNSYLVANIA AND OHIO NEWS.
I'M JUST A LADY IN AN APARTMENT WITH A COMPUTER. WHAT I FIND I SAVE, BUT SURELY I HAVE MISSED MANY. SURELY MANY CASES NEVER MADE IT INTO THE NEWS. SURELY MANY INSTANCES WERE NEVER REPORTED. SURELY MANY ATTEMPTS TO REPORT WERE REBUFFED. SO READ THE LIST, BUT READ ALSO ALL THE FACES BETWEEN THE LINES. THESE ARE NOT JUST WORDS. THEY ARE LIVES.

  1. I am so upset with the entrys you have provided...I think of the impact which my own Marriage had upon me for 23 yrs
    The damage that is done from yrs spent in denial of the DV existence. How others' really quit coming around because they can sense things arent "so"

    My prayers go forward with this page, and that others will share, and encourage those stuck in the CYCLE of DV realize the impact before it gets to death...

    More needs to be taken seriously when it first reveals its ugly head. No tolerance of it to be demonstrated amoung small children...break the cycle of abuse before they are old enough to consider maltreatment an acceptable avenue in Life and loving.

    1. I can only speak for myself and say I was never a victim of physical abuse from one of the officers/Ohio state patrol officers mentioned but a victim of mental abuse from the same officer mentioned...they need to be treated as the same as others charged with DV they are criminals just the same
