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?
BELOW ARE LINKS TO OHIO CASES POSTED ON THIS BLOG AND THEY ARE ONLY SAMPLES OF OHIO CASES - THERE ARE OVER A HUNDRED THAT MANAGED TO MAKE IT INTO THE NEWS FROM JUST THE LAST 3 YEARS. HOW MANY NEVER SURFACED THAT FAR? HOW MANY ARE ABOUT TO?
"...HOW MANY DEATHS DOES IT TAKE TIL WE KNOW
THAT TOO MANY PEOPLE HAVE DIED?
THE ANSWER MY FRIEND
IS BLOWIN' IN THE WIND.
THE ANSWER IS BLOWIN' IN THE WIND...."
