  2. This is an awsome guy and was a great cop. I know the true story and that was just retaliation for her being arrested for DV. The same cop that called the state attorney (DET Pakonis)and ask that charges were dropped, was the same detective that was friends with his wifes boyfriend. He is also the one that was that continued filing charges. No conflict of interest there. That Pakonis is the one that should have been arrested. The state didn't even take his LEO cert. from him.

    This officers ex wife is recanting her story now and is going to make statements that she was pressured by Det. Pakonis from Martin County to lie. He used fear and intimidation to carry out his own agenda. Nice Picture Andrew, We all know the truth.

  6. People always amaze me that they really think because they know someone socially or at work that they also know what they do or are capable of behind closed doors with the people closest to them. It makes no sense and just shows they haven't taken the time to look up the basics about domestic violence before posting their anonymous comments.

    YOU know what you know.

    I hope you are in a safe place and have support.
    I don't want to say too much here because I'm not trying to set him off and make your life any harder.
