[Excerpts] ...Chief Superintendent John O'Hare, from Greater Manchester Police's Rochdale division, said that Miss Howarth was well respected and popular. He said: "Claire had been handpicked to undertake a challenging role as a community beat manager and she was someone I had identified as an officer with the potential to go far in Greater Manchester Police and make a real difference.

  1. I am so glad this site exists because it seems that every single day more and more women are being murdered at the hands of men. It is important for people reading to take notice of the simple fact that women in this country are in a state of crisis. We seem to overlook this fact, and we seem to almost miss the real situation here. Here, you have dedicated an entire site just to men that have been killing women. That is the point we must see, women are being slain by abusers every single day, and this site is flooded with these murders, murders that seem to affect only women.

    The more I read about these deaths, the more I urge everyone to join with me and advocate for new legislation. In America, we need harsher laws, we need GPS tracking on abusers, we need everyone willing to put their heads together and attempt to solve this problem. It will work, but everyone needs to get involved.

  2. I understand your frustration - but this particular site is not about men killing women. There are women here who have also killed, and both men and women who are said to have killed themselves. This is specifically about officer, fire fighter, and public official domestic abuse.
