My wife Patty helped to get 12,500 full page letters signed and dated by citizens requesting United States Senators and U.S. Houseof Representative's to pass a law or an amendment with Crystal's name to ensure that OIDV issues would be heard nation wide on this most heinous crime committed by law enforcement personnel. And they are the ones that swore to an oath to protect all citizens in the community including their loved ones, family and others. We respect all law enforcement agencies that put their lives on the line daily to protect their city, county and state from those that commit such crimes. Personnel who commit tarnish the badges and images of all those outstanding agencies.
We filed a $75 million dollar lawsuit against the city and others for the loss of Crystal, and it was settled out of court for the orphaned children only. No monetary award for any others. They no longer have a mom and dad to look up to daily and are being cared for with great love within our family.
Have you walked in our grandchildren's shoes? How about the children when their teacher says take this stuff home to your mom and dad. How do the children feel? When the children meet other kids mom and dad at school activities, what do they say???? When it's time for a prom, or a drivers license or when one of them gets recognized for sports or outstanding achievements! Walking in their shoes is hard to imagine.
I am appalled that some law enforcement officers who have shot their wives and then killed themselves are posted on an "IN Memory of" page of an officer-involved domestic violence web site. This is disgusting and unbearable. The Tacoma News Tribune did an outstanding article in October of 2008, that named three of the five worst criminals in the last 125 years of history in Pierce County Washington as being Ted Bundy, The Beltway Snipers in Washington D.C. (as they originated in Tacoma Wa), and david brame who committed Murder/Suicide of our most beloved daughter Crystal Judson ( brame), leaving 2 orphaned children. Yes, we have walked ...................!
We must close on a positive note.We are so happy and blessed that all of Crystal Judson's laws have jumped the pond and are being reviewed by Parliament in the UK. England has similar problems with OIDV as we have here in America.
