...Earl's wife contacted the Amherst Police Department later in the day to explain what happened, telling them she did not want to call police earlier because she was afraid to get Earl in trouble with his job... Chief Cel Rivera said he will require a doctor's letter before he allows 17-year veteran Officer Corey Earl to work as a police officer again... "My biggest concern is that he gets the help he needs so that he can be OK and be a part of this police department"... officers had been called out to the home at least twice before for disputes between the couple... There were no charges filed in connection with either incident...
From yesterday's news:
...Edwardsville Mayor William "Heinz" Rodgers was cited earlier this month after allegedly striking his wife during a domestic dispute... Edwardsville police responded to a 911 call on the evening of Aug. 18. But by the time officers had arrived, Rodgers had left the residence. [Edwardsville Interim Police Chief James] Moore added that police officers ran into the mayor later that evening, but did not take him into custody. "That was part of the department's standard procedure"... officials have yet to decide whether to press charges...

Thursday, August 30, 2007
A police officer placed on unpaid administrative leave has a long history of disciplinary problems, including suspensions. Officer Eric B. Martzolf, 38, was put on leave by the department following his appearance in Massillon Municipal Court on Wednesday on a domestic violence charge. Martzolf is accused of confronting his wife, pushing her to the ground and striking her in the head twice with his fist at her job... his wife asked the judge to order him to attend anger management classes... "I have to be careful because it’s a personnel issue, but we did send him to counseling before" Trustee John Pizzino said... he has been suspended without pay three times, received seven written reprimands, two written warnings and was twice counseled by supervisors for his on-duty conduct... The bargaining agreement between the township and Fraternal Order of Police allows for the department to put Martzolf on unpaid leave pending the outcome of the criminal trial... Martzolf was released from the Stark County Jail on his own recognizance... We’ll be monitoring it closely"...

..."From what we understand, he went to see his wife and ended up hitting her a couple of times and knocked her to the ground"... others at her work -- heard what was going on and came to the victim's aid. That's when Martzolf -- starting yelling obscenities at the co-workers and throwing things at them... Martzolf was taken directly to the Stark County Jail and booked there instead on the Massillon City Jail... "We booked him out at county because we were afraid he might be suicidal," Neftzer said. "We thought they have better facilities there for that. They have counselors and have the ability to put him in an isolation cell."

Kelly's new deputy chief of training brings lots of experience, much of it bad
Village Voice, NY

August 28th, 2007
The NYPD's new deputy commissioner of training, Wilbur "Bill" Chapman, should have no trouble teaching "New York's Finest" about the pitfalls of sexual harassment, cronyism, and punitive transfers. He's been accused of all that during his checkered career... His five-year stint as police chief in Bridgeport, Connecticut, left that department "functionally unsound"...

A former police officer on trial for murdering his girlfriend has changed his story about what happened the night of the shooting. The girlfriend was also a police officer, and her department showed up in force Tuesday in the courtroom. Much of the small Normandy Police Department spent Tuesday in court as a gesture of support for the family of fellow Officer Amanda Cates... If convicted of second degree murder, he would be sentenced to ten to 30 years in prison.

A Jefferson County jury convicted former police officer Robert Brooks Thursday of second-degree murder and armed criminal action in the shooting death of his girlfriend Amanda Cates, who also was a police officer... Brooks, 38, a former Calverton Park police officer, showed little emotion when the guilty verdict was returned... But several members of his family ran out of the courtroom crying, while Cates’ family wept quietly and embraced... Carolyn Cates spoke to the jury on behalf of her daughter, Amanda. Brooks cried during her testimony.
“My sorrow for Mr. Brooks is that he chose not to value my daughter’s life. But he knows the truth, and he will have to live with that for the rest of his life, and even for him that can’t be easy”...

[EXCERPTS] In a case based on circumstantial evidence, a jury today convicted former sheriff's sergeant John Racz of murdering his estranged wife 16 years ago. ...Racz, 61, closed his eyes as the court clerk read the verdict on charges of first-degree murder. As the jurors reaffirmed their verdict one-by-one, Racz shook his head slightly before standing up to empty his pockets and go to jail... Joann Racz, 31, the oldest of the Racz siblings... "I'm just pretty much in shock right now," she said. "It's just really crazy sad news. I guess if I'm going to say something, I still love my dad, I still love my mom"... Juror Ram Sonthalia, 69, of Sylmar said that seeing the Racz children in the courtroom had no effect on the jury's judgment. "...we were not there to think about that"... Louis Danoff, 66, a retired sheriff's detective, was on the case from 1991, keeping at it even a few years after he retired... "I'm really thrilled, I'm really happy for the new blood they brought in to get us over the hump," said Danoff, who attended the trial daily. "... I can't believe the jury came back so quickly. I'm numb"...

Santa Fe police sergeant remains on duty pending domestic violence allegation
Santa Fe New Mexican
By Jason Auslander
August 15, 2007 - [EXCERPTS] The current head of the Santa Fe Police Department's burglary-narcotics unit was charged with misdemeanor domestic violence this week... Sgt. Michael LeBlanc... - remains on duty... "We haven't heard anything yet to make us put him on leave," [Police chief Eric] Johnson said. "If he's not restricted from carrying a firearm and being that this comes from a domestic situation where he's going through a divorce, my guess is his duty situation won't change unless he violates (the restraining order)"... LeBlanc's stipulated restraining order makes no mention of firearms... The latest charge of battery on a household member against LeBlanc occurred July 22, when he allegedly punched his wife in the left arm and left thigh... He also allegedly pushed her against a wall three days later... His wife told an Albuquerque police officer that "she is afraid of Michael due to the fact that Michael has hit her in the past … and (she) kept saying that she is very afraid of Michael due to the fact that he has weapons inside the house," the complaint says. An investigator took pictures of bruises... LeBlanc was not arrested after the incident... In 2004, LeBlanc was charged with battery on a household member and assault on a household member... between LeBlanc and the mother of his older daughter... LeBlanc refused to return the girl to her mother because he felt she wasn't providing an appropriate home environment... LeBlanc used an "arm-bar" - described in the report as "a law enforcement escort technique" - to walk her off his property... The woman, who was pregnant, also said LeBlanc threatened to shoot her in the stomach, according to the report... LeBlanc received a deferred sentence at the time, and the charges were dismissed six months later...

...[District Attorney Beth ] Silverman said Katelin Racz's statement sums it up best: "It's sad to think mom abandoned us, but it's sadder to think dad slaughtered her"...A few excerpts from today and yesterday's news:
...There is no smoking gun, no body, no eyewitness. But friends, co-workers, neighbors and sheriff's homicide investigators testified how Ann doted on her children and looked to the future. And they described how she feared her husband... She [District Attorney Beth Silverman] repeated the words of several witnesses who recalled Ann's fear of her husband, including the testimony of one friend who said Ann feared John would kill her and her body would never be found. She reminded jurors of inconsistencies in testimony describing John Racz's stories to friends, family and homicide investigators... "His story doesn't make sense"...
..."He wanted to prevent her from walking away with half of their joint estate [$550,000]"... Defense attorneys maintain that Ann Racz had grown unhappy in her marriage and chose to leave on a trip to think over the divorce from her husband... "There's no way on God's green earth that he gave his wife $25,000 to go away to think after she served him with divorce papers"...

A sheriff's deputy pleaded guilty Tuesday morning to fatally shooting his wife in the jaw during a December argument in their Alpine home and faces up to 21 years in prison. The plea by sheriff's Deputy Lowell "Sam" Bryan Bruce came after El Cajon Superior Court Judge Allan J. Preckel first rejected a proposed deal that would have limited Bruce's prison term to 15 years. In a hearing last week, the judge indicated that he would accept a 15-year ceiling on Bruce's prison term. But on Tuesday he said he had a "sea change" in his thinking after reviewing the case and wanted the flexibility to sentence Bruce to prison for as little as six years and as long as 21 years....
Bruce lawyers asked to meet with Preckel in his chambers to discuss the case, but Preckel said he wanted everything done in open court, in public view... Preckel said he would accept the plea agreement only if it leaves open the possibility of the longer prison term... After a 20-minute break, Bruce pleaded guilty to voluntary manslaughter and the personal use of a pistol... The judge read a statement on Bruce's behalf: "I shot and killed my wife, which resulted in her death"...

IT HAS TO DO WITH SOME COMING TO BELIEVE THAT THEY ARE THE LAW - OR CONVINCING OTHERS, WHO THEN ARE TRAPPED. AND LET'S BE AWARE, OFFICERS ARE KILLED IN DOMESTIC INCIDENTS ALSO, NOT ALWAYS BY THEIR OWN HAND.
IT HAS TO DO WITH A BROTHERHOOD AND WALL OF SILENCE.
ALL FOR ONE.
PLEASE USE YOUR POWER TO ENCOURAGE OHIO LAW ENFORCEMENT AGENCIES TO EMBRACE THE INTERNATIONAL ASSOCIATION OF CHIEFS OF POLICE (IACP) MODEL POLICY ON POLICE OFFICER DOMESTIC VIOLENCE," THEN TO JUMP OVER TO THE DEPARTMENT OF JUSTICE AND ACCESS THAT CRYSTAL JUDSON BRAME DOMESTIC VIOLENCE PROTOCOL PROGRAM MONEY ($186M AVAILABLE) SET THERE TO HELP AGENCIES GET IN FRONT OF THIS.
HOW MUCH AVOIDABLE PAIN IS BEING PERPETRATED? TO HOW MANY PEOPLE? ON HOW MANY LEVELS OF HARM?
I JUST LISTENED AGAIN TO THE JULY 911 CALL FROM JESSICA MEHAFFEY. SHE'S ON THE PHONE WITH DISPATCH AND HER MOM AT THE SAME TIME WHEN HER CLEVELAND POLICE OFFICER DAD, REX MEHAFFEY, SHOOTS HER MOM IN THE HEAD. (SHE DOESN'T KNOW DURING THAT CALL THAT HE TURNED THE GUN ON HIMSELF ALSO.) WHAT I NOTICED TODAY THAT I DIDN'T NOTICE BEFORE IS THAT SHE SAYS DURING THAT CALL THAT HER DAD "HAS BEEN THREATENING SUICIDE FOR WEEKS."
WERE THERE POINTS OF INTERVENTION? NO ONE ASKED OUT LOUD. LAW ENFORCEMENT AGENCIES NEED POLICIES TO FOLLOW - FOR THE VICTIMS, THE OFFICERS. THE PUBLIC.
PLEASE DON'T WAIT FOR $75M LAWSUITS LIKE THE CITY OF TACOMA DID. YOU CAN BET TACOMA HAS AN OFFICER-INVOLVED POLICY FOR THEIR POLICE DEPARTMENT NOW. SO DOES EVERY COP DEN IN WASHINGTON. ARE WRONGFUL DEATH LAWSUITS THE ONLY WAY?
ISN'T IT BETTER TO BE WISE AND AHEAD OF THE TRAGEDIES? ISN'T IT BETTER TO AT LEAST LOOK LIKE FOLKS TRIED - EVEN IF ALL OF THEM CAN'T BE AVOIDED?

SAYS SHE WAS ASSAULTED, TREATED AS CRIMINAL
By Cassondra Kirby
Aug. 07, 2007
[EXCERPTS] A Perry County woman who alleged that her husband, a Kentucky state trooper, assaulted her in August last year has filed a lawsuit against him and several other troopers who investigated the case. According to the lawsuit, Terri Lynn Moore claims that troopers with the state police post in Hazard attempted to protect her husband, Terry Lloyd Brewer, who could lose his job if convicted of domestic violence because it threatens his right to carry a gun... The lawsuit says the troopers treated Moore as the criminal, even threatening to arrest her. Troopers also helped Brewer obtain an emergency protective order against Moore, even though she was the victim of the assault... Moore says, Brewer verbally abused and threatened her, hit her and would not allow her to leave his home. David Banks and John McMahan, the investigating officers who responded to the disturbance, treated Moore with "disdain" and acted as though Brewer were the victim, the lawsuit says... According to the lawsuit, officials with internal affairs also dismissed Moore's claims and "failed to thoroughly investigate... Internal affairs "demeaned, humiliated, intimidated and debased her during the interview process," the lawsuit says... Moore is seeking compensation for pain and suffering, past and future medical expenses, lost wages, loss of earning capacity and attorneys' fees...
