[WI] Deputy Hutchins shoots girlfriend and 12 year old. OIDV discussed.

Video: ...Domestic abuse victim advocates say even when there are warning signs, when the abuser is in law enforcement, the cases can be especially difficult. "Law enforcement officers have access to more resources, more power, and this issue really is about power and control. You know when I read the statement, 'I'll make it my mission in my life to hurt you' - what that means for a law enforcement official is they DO have the power. They have institutionalized power behind them... As a community, ordinary citizins, we should all be concerned about people who have issues about power and control who are law enforcement. Absolutely, because they make us ALL less safe"...

[Excerpts] A Milwaukee County sheriff's deputy was being held Tuesday on a possible charge of attempted homicide in connection with a double shooting Monday night that wounded a 31-year-old woman and a 12-year-old neighbor girl, police records show. A neighbor of the woman said the victim had pounded on her door before fleeing to the girl's apartment, and the neighbor described the incident as "chaos"... Sherrelia King, who lives next door to the woman who was shot, said she heard "arguing and the gunshots and the glass shattering, and then she must have come over here, because I heard banging on my door." But when she got to the door, nobody was there. She said she heard more shooting after the initial shots were fired... The 12-year-old lives in an adjacent building about 15 feet away. "That had to be traumatic for that baby, that child," said King of the girl. "You just go to the door and the wild, wild west comes in"... Roy Felber, president of the Milwaukee Deputy Sheriffs' Association, said Tuesday afternoon that he and association vice president Rich Graber were on their way to speak with the arrested deputy... "I JUST WANT TO MAKE SURE HE'S ALL RIGHT, THAT HE HAS WHAT HE NEEDS," FELBER SAID. "AS FAR AS ANYTHING ELSE, I DON'T WANT TO KNOW WHAT HAPPENED. IT WAS OFF-DUTY. THAT'S BETWEEN HIM AND HIS ATTORNEY."

Prosecutors have filed attempted murder and reckless injury charges against a former Milwaukee County Sheriff's Deputy. Deputy Thomas Hutchins is accused of shooting a woman with whom he has a child and shooting a 12-year-old girl who lived in a home where the first victim ran for help. In total he faces three charges: attempted murder, reckless injury and endangering safety. If convicted on all three, Hutchins faces as many as 95 years in prison. According to the criminal complaint, Hutchins got into a fight with the mother of his child over the way she had disciplined their daughter. The fight got violent with Hutchins hitting the woman at one point. The woman attempted to call 9-1-1. At that point, she says Hutchins begged her not to call the police saying he would lose his job. He even ripped the phone out of the wall. According to the complaint, when the victim continued to attempt to call 9-1-1, Hutchins pulled out his gun pointed it at her and said, "you take my job, I'll take your life." Hutchins then fired at the victim, hitting her in the face. She ran next door and a 12-year-old girl at a neighboring home let her in. SHE YELLED FOR THE GIRL TO CLOSE AND LOCK THE DOOR, WHICH THE GIRL DID. AT THAT POINT, HUTCHINS FIRED MORE SHOTS INTO THE HOME. At least four of those shots hit the little girl in her leg and hand. Hutchins has resigned his position. [LINK]

[Excerpts] A Milwaukee County sheriff’s deputy arrested in the double shooting that wounded a woman and a 12-year-old girl threatened to kill his ex-wife two years ago, according to a temporary restraining order issued against him. In December 2006, Thomas D. Hutchins , now 39, was ordered by a Milwaukee County circuit judge not to phone or threaten his former wife, Mary Hutchins , now 35, and to stay at least 200 feet away from her and her home. Mary Hutchins wrote in the petition for the temporary restraining order that Thomas Hutchins threatened to take her life. "On the voice mail he said he would (expletive) me up he doesn’t care he will kill me. It doesn’t matter who I tell, no one can protect me," Mary Hutchins wrote. "He would make it his mission in life to hurt me." Mary Hutchins claimed that her ex-husband had threatened her for four years and said he’d make her see her mother, who died in 2004. Thomas Hutchins , a 12-year veteran of the sheriff’s office, was in custody Wednesday on a possible charge of attempted homicide. Milwaukee police said a 31-year-old woman was shot in the cheek after a domestic argument in the 8800 block of N. Swan Road on Monday night. The woman, described by police as Hutchins ’ girlfriend, ran to the 12-year-old girl’s apartment, where the child was shot in the leg. Hutchins does not live with the woman who was shot, but they have a child who is less than 2 years old, police said... [Full article here]

An off-duty Milwaukee County sheriff’s deputy worried he’d lose his job if his girlfriend called police during a domestic dispute shot her and a 12-year-old neighbor girl behind the door of an apartment where the victim ran for help, according to a complaint filed Thursday. Thomas D. Hutchins , 39, is charged with attempted first-degree intentional homicide, first-degree reckless injury and endangering safety by use of a dangerous weapon in connection with Monday’s shooting in the 8800 block of N. Swan Road. According to the complaint: A 31-year-old woman told police Hutchins became upset while visiting her home when she disciplined their child. They argued and Hutchins struck her in the face, the woman told police. She told Hutchins to leave, but he refused and she began to call 911. He begged her not to call, then pulled the phone out of the wall and broke it. Then he pointed his Glock handgun at her and stated, "You take my job, I’ll take your life," according to the complaint. He fired twice, the complaint says. She felt pain in her face and ran to a neighbor’s home. The girl had let her in and then closed and locked the door when the woman heard multiple gunshots. The girl was hit three times in her right thigh and suffered a graze wound to her right hand. Hutchins later told police he had been drinking brandy and champagne. He said the woman was upset with her sister and when he tried to calm her down she struck him in the head with a candlestick. He feared for his safety and shot twice. He said he didn’t know if he had shot the woman. Hutchins said he then drove to his mother’s house. After he was confronted about the neighbor’s door, he admitted to shooting it, police said, because he wanted someone to open it so he could check on his girlfriend’s condition. He said he did not mean to shoot anyone and did not know he had shot a child. Hutchins is being held in the Waukesha County Jail. He has resigned from the sheriff’s office, said department spokeswoman Kim Brooks. [LINK]

  3. Petria did many horrible things to her boyfriend before this happend she is not so innocent she may not be in jail but her ugly ways caught up with her she didn't deserve to be shot but there's always two sides to every story. Right now only one side is being told. What that man did was wrong, very wrong and he is serving plenty of time for it.

  4. There is no excuse. Period. If you don't like someone get away from them.

    And getting away isn't easy, but working at it is better than shooting women and kids. Being that negligent with the weapon means he wasn't trying NOT to shoot a kid.

    Stupid is right where he needs to be.
