Police Officer Involved Domestic Violence.
Lighting a candle of remembrance for those who've lost their lives to domestic violence behind the blue wall, for strength and wisdom to those still there, and a non-ending prayer for those who thought they had escaped but can't stop being afraid.

[NJ] Remembering Barbara
BARBARA ELKE GETZ VANAMAN had written a personal computer entry about her plans to leave Robert:
"I don't know all the future holds for me. And I'm scared of what will happen in the future."
5 years ago today Millville NJ Police Sgt. Robert Vanaman said he shot and killed his wife Barbara Vanaman, mother of 2, in self-defense. He got to stay in the house (crime scene) and was able to refuse to talk to police for months - while his chief said he could come back to work whenever he was ready. He was eventually arrested and convicted - sentenced to a total of 9 years. [Google Barbara]
