VIDEO: Domestic Violence among Police - Gregory Mantell interviews Former LAPD Police Officer, Catherine MacWillie
Caption with the video:
Domestic violence is bad in any situation, but the problem is compounded when one or more of the parties is a police officer. Former Los Angeles Police Department Officer, Catherine MacWillie, founder of Custody Calculations, takes us behind the "blue wall."
Ms. MacWillie mentions one of my heroes, Bob Mullally - the LAPD police-dv whistleblower who did time for telling what he knew out loud - and also alludes to the Ramos and Ana Ramos, et al v. City of Los Angeles lawsuit - which was a result of not taking action before LAPD Police Officer Victor Ramos committed double murder suicide on his estranged wife and Gregory Thomas in front of Melba and Victor's 3 very young sons. I'll post on it in the near future.

KUDOS to the Pinellas County Domestic Violence Task Force for posting a link to this video. By doing so they are one of the very few general domestic violence entities that acknowledge officer-involved domestic violence as problem on their website. That matters to the victims of these crimes.
