here's your ****ing patriot act

A few years ago there was an officer that killed another officer right near my parents' house - the two officers were a couple. It was found that there were several attempts for restraining orders against the male, but the female had a lot of difficulty getting the other officers in the jurisdiction to take her seriously because they trusted him/he was an officer.
There was a Lifetime movie based on a true story about something like this.

I think it used to be(?) really hard to get the police (in general) to take restraining orders seriously in matters of domestic violence and it seems that it was even more difficult when the offender was a fellow cop.

She was carrying the damn restraining order against him in her pocket. They found it at the hospital. I think it's more of an issue of restraining orders being meaningless pieces of paper. Just my opinion.

There was a similar story in this weekend's paper. Linda Erlichman was murdered by her ex-boyfriend even with a restraining order. He was a former New York City police officer. He was actually in the process of being prosecuted for stalking Erlichman and they think that may have provoked him. He shot her to death and then killed himself.

Here's the story.
OMG.....The bottom line is, some cops are asswipes and some are not...MOSt people incounter the asswipes..go figure..
