[GA] Officer Thomas tried to say his wife hit her SELF in the face causing those injuries, but...


Macon Georgia Police Officer Tommy Thomas faces firing after punching his wife in the face, knocking her down in front of grandkids  Thomas told deputies his wife struck a car he ws riding in with a female with her own vehicle and then his wife then started slapping herself in the face, hitting herself with something from the side of the road, screaming, “You are going to jail.” (Hah!) But deputies also spoke with Thomas’ grandchildren, who said they saw Thomas knock his wife to the ground. His wife was treated for a swollen face and scratches. He was charged with one count simple battery of family violence act and two counts of cruelty to children in the third degree.

THANK YOU TO THE TWIGG COUNTY SHERIFF'S DEPARTMENT DEPUTIES FOR YOUR PROFESSIONALISM.

    I am a police officer and I highly condemn Thomas' actions and believe he and those like him bring disgrace upon the law enforcement profession. I have been married for 17 years and during that time my wife and I have had many horrible fights early in our marriage that did come to pushing and shoving. I have been a police officer for the past 10 years and during that time we have never had physical contact or violent intimidation during an arguement. As a matter of fact, because of my police training I learned how to avoid such incidents. Both my wife and I have matured quite a bit and we both realize that physical contact during an argument is unacceptable. We respect and love each other too much for that. Evidently Thomas' level of respect for his wife, family, and profession is very poor to say the least.

    I will not pretend that a "Blue Wall" does exist. However, it as been my experience over the last 10 years that when an officer involved case of Domestic Violence (DV) is reported, it has been fully investigated. At my previous department an officer was charged for DV for grabbing his wife by the arms. The department placed him on Administrative Leave during the investigation. When the case went to court the wife stated she provoked him constantly all day and asked to have the charges dismissed. The charges were dismissed upon an agreement of anger management and marriage counseling. The officer was then fired from the department.

    In order to reduce Domestic Violence in law enforcement relationships and increase awareness of the necessity to report such incidents we must educate law enforcement and push for mandated training on the topic.

    If you are behind the "Blue Wall", first get out of the home and get to a safe location with family or friends. If you do not feel your partner's department will investigate your matter seriously and professionally then repot the matter to a department that has more jurisdiction for example. If he or she works for a police department, call the sheriffs department, or vice versa depending on where you live. If you still feel the matter is being covered up then call the your state's Department of Justice. The point is don't stop until you get the proper help. BREAK DOWN THE BLUE WALL!

  2. (Just want to add that going to family and friends can endanger the people who care about you. Try to get to somewhere that the person you fear doesn't know about. If to a shelter, ask to be transferred to a shelter across the state immediately - and if it's officer-involved maybe pull some oidv folks in to advocate for your safety since not all domestic violence folks understand the extra risks.)

  3. Funny how my comment disappeared. This story is a lie. Tommy was always the victim.

  4. Or did you just decide to not approve it? What? Doesn't fit your cop-bashing?

  5. Send me a link to the article that blames her and I'll look at it. I do not have to post victim-bashing trash that anyone pulls out of thin air.
