02/17/12- For anyone who has returned to this page for an update recently, you will notice that I have not posted more of these incidents until today- and after today I may not get back to this page for a while... it is so depressing to read the many stories of cops who commit domestic violence on their loved ones, even as the media continues to rehash their tired claims of the dangers of prostitution...  life is dangerous- every job and relationship is dangerous- but when we focus on one group of 'victims' at the expense of all the others, who is helped?

If you are a law enforcement officer who was wrongly or falsely accused of domestic violence or abuse, and you have documentation to prove you did not do the crime, I am MORE than happy to remove your name from this list. I am very aware that accusations can be made against anyone by someone with a grudge against you and once the information is in a public space, it is very difficult to get the media to do an updated story to show you did not do whatever crime of which you were accused. You can contact me through the "contact us" page- and please send  your name, the date that the media published a story and documentation that you did not, in fact, commit such a crime.


In an earlier article, I addressed the latest statistics (November 2011) from the US Government regarding incidents of intimate partner violence. (Click here to view the government report and my comments on this report.) What is missing from that report is the sub-heading of intimate partner violence committed by law enforcement agents against their spouses/ girlfriends/ boyfriends/ domestic partners and other family members. (Scroll down or click here to see the growing list of criminal cops and their victims). Unfortunately there are far too many examples of O.I.I.P.V (Officer Involved Intimate Partner Violence) where the victims had previously asserted their belief that they would become victims at the hands of their law enforcement officer spouse (etc.) but nothing was done to prevent the preventable. Violent law enforcement officers were not arrested or charged with crimes, or if they were, cases were dismissed by sympathetic judges. "Domestic violence is far more common among the families of police officers than among the rest of the population, according to the U.S. Department of Justice and the National Center for Women and Policing. At least 40% of police families are affected by domestic violence, as opposed to an estimated 10% in other households..." October 30, 2011 Milwaukee Journal Sentinel

 

According to some sources, there are approximately 900,000 law enforcement agents in the US... so, with these statistics, there are about 360,000 law enforcement agents (40%) out there who commit domestic violence on a family member... that's a lot of violence which is mostly ignored by the media and the public! And as many cases as are shown here, how many more incidents of violence and abuse were there in which charges were not filed and so did not come to the attention of the media? How many spouses of violent law enforcement officers did/do not call for help through the many years of abuse/violence they endured because if their cop spouse- the provider for themselves and their families- were to be fired (and therefore possibly lose their pension) and no longer be able to be licensed to carry a gun (which makes them unemployable in law enforcement) who will take care of them? How many spouses of violent law enforcement agents were 'talked' out of filing charges by their law enforcement spouse's boss/colleagues, who used veiled threats of social services taking away the children, or of their cop spouse losing their pension or being demoted - all of which would have financial consequences for the family? No doubt many of the incidents listed below were only reported when the violence got so out of control that it was impossible for anyone to ignore- the assaults were committed in front of too many witnesses for the law enforcement agency to cover up any longer- or the years of violence culminated in a murder- suicide. For anyone who is an honest and upstanding law enforcement officer (of which there are many), having to work with those who commit crimes like domestic violence puts them at risk because the LEOs- who carry guns- obviously have anger management issues which endanger everyone around them.

 

Reading the articles which are filled with outrage over alleged human trafficking (which for many only means prostitution and not domestic servitude or the many other areas of labor into which people are trafficked), people want immediate action (more laws, more government solutions) to stop the minimal number of cases of human trafficking (see the government report on this here) but don't seem to give a rat's patoodie about the well being of the families of violent cops, of which there are SO many more! I challenge anyone to show me a list with the names of 360,000 prostitutes who are or were victims of abuse at the hands of their clients or 'pimps' in the past 10 years- or how about a list of 36,000? 3,600? 360? How about a list as long as the one on this page over the same time span? It can't be done because (1) there are not that many actual victims (2) when there are victims, they cannot go to the police (just like the spouses of police who are afraid to turn in their abusive law enforcement spouse) because the police will tell them that if they don't like being a victim, they should stop being a prostitute! All anyone can give as evidence of violence against prostitutes is anecdotal evidence... insisting with very little documentation (and extraordinarily ideologically biased 'research') that prostitution is 'dangerous and harmful!' Prohibitionists like Melissa Farley tell us that 'prostitution causes PTSD' (Post Traumatic Stress Disorder), but I would point out that being a victim of domestic violence/ spousal abuse combined with the inability to get justice must also cause PTSD... and if 'abolishing all prostitution' is a viable solution for the alleged problem of PTSD in prostitutes, what would be a viable solution for the PTSD caused by being married to or involved with a violent law enforcement agent?  Unfortunately when it comes to domestic violence in families of law enforcement agents, there are two sacrosanct subjects involved- "law enforcement officers" and "marriage"- neither subject do journalists seem inclined to tackle in any sort of all-out media crusade such as the one currently conducted against 'sex trafficking' (which is conflated with prostitution). (An exception is this article of January 15, 2012 from the San Francisco Chronicle by Kevin Fagan, spurred no doubt by the recent election of San Francisco's (CA) newly elected sheriff Ross Mirkarimi, a man himself facing charges of domestic abuse.)

 

In a recent article in the Las Vegas Sun, author J. Patrick Coolican, opines that "(prostitutes) are often reluctant to testify, and for good reason. They live in fear of their pimps." Apparently Mr. Coolican is totally unaware that women married to cops are equally reluctant to turn in their abusive cop spouses as they live in fear of them (for good reason)... and often do not bother to file a report because the police agencies their spouses work for cover up for their fellow officers (see the horrific story of whistle blower Bob Mullally below). Would this or any other willfully/woefully ignorant (in my opinion) journalist consider it appropriate to suggest that we as a society ought to ban cops from marrying or having intimate relationships to protect women and children from these violent law enforcement agents? Or does he even care about these women? Like so many in the media, he focuses solely on us po' 'hos, despite the fact that more women (and men) are at risk of violence at the hands of their law enforcement agent spouses/lovers than any prostitute is at the hands of her clients or alleged pimps. That the majority of us sex workers do not encounter violence at the hands of our clients and most of us do not have 'pimps' as defined by the media and the cops does not seem to make any difference to these 'journalists' who have jumped on the prohibitionists' bandwagon and are determined to 'eliminate' all prostitution regardless of the cost to the lives of those whom they believe they are 'helping.' (see 01/04/12 Forbes article by another irresponsible (in my opinion) journalist who quotes the prohibitionists' lies without doing any of her own research on the supposed 30 million victims of  slavery world wide... no mention of the fact that the majority of those alleged slaves are not involved in prostitution but in domestic servitude and other areas of non sexual labor... but does that matter to her? Apparently not. Just us poor ignorant prostitutes!!!)

 

The staggering number of cases listed below would indicate that it is FAR MORE dangerous to be the spouse or lover of anyone in law enforcement (federal, state, local) than it is to be a prostitute! But what are the States Attorneys General doing about it? Not much. Instead, Washington State Attorney General Rob McKenna continues his attack on websites with adult ads, demanding that they be shut down. The rallying cry of the prostitution prohibitionists is "one is too many" when it comes to victims of child sexual exploitation at the hands of predators who find their victims on those adult ads sites and the prostitute victims of violent pimps or clients, and while it is true that one IS too many, how many cases of domestic violence/ murder/ suicide within law enforcement agents' families must there be before these grandstanding States Attorneys General get real and demand something be done about it? If McKenna believes that the solution to the violence against prostitutes is to shut down craigslist, backpage.com and all other websites with adult ads, what does he suggest should be done to stop the domestic violence BY LAW ENFORCEMENT AGENTS?

 

In some cases the officers get away with murder, literally, but in others, the officers who kill their intimate partners often kill themselves as well. All too frequently the highest ranking departmental police/ spokesperson will say of the violent officer "Other than this incident (beating his wife for years and years), he was a good cop!Here is a site which covers a number of recent incidents of officer involved intimate partner violence. It is very very sad.

 

Why does it happen? "(Law enforcement) Department leaders don't follow national standards on how to handle accusations of domestic violence against officers. Prosecutors often charge them with lesser crimes - or no crimes at all. As a result, officers who abuse their spouses or romantic partners are allowed to keep their jobs, carry loaded weapons and respond when other battered women (not their wives) call for help..."  In Wisconsin,   "It is impossible to tell how many domestic incidents the Milwaukee Police Department has not investigated. Last year, for example, the wife of a high-ranking commander in the Professional Performance Division, which investigates officer misconduct, called 911 in fear of her husband. No one wrote up a report, and department officials say a recording of the emergency call does not exist." Milwaukee is just one of many cities in which law enforcement officers who abuse their spouses are allowed to go unpunished. Just ask Bob Mullally- who tried to expose the LAPD cover-ups of domestic violence within its ranks and ended up in federal prison because of it:

Life of a Whistleblower
Bob Mullally goes to prison for releasing cops’ domestic-violence records:

"In 1997, the Los Angeles Office of the Inspector General conducted an investigation of the LAPD after a legal consultant named Bob Mullally leaked shocking LAPD personnel files to the press. These files documented scores of violent domestic crimes committed by LAPD officers. Mullally was so shocked by the LAPD's mishandling of this police family violence that he decided to violate the civil protective order in the case he was working on and turn the files over to the media, in the hopes of creating change in the LAPD.

Rather than reviewing the problem or recommending improvements, the LAPD sued Mullally for leaking the information. In 2002, after multiple appeals, Mullally was sentenced to 45 days in federal prison. None of the police officers he exposed were ever prosecuted for their crimes, and many continue to serve as gun-carrying LAPD officers.  Even the prosecutor in the case stated on record that this sentence was "extreme" for a violation of a civil protective order. Mullally is the first person in United States history to ever serve a jail term for this type of violation. He served his time in 2003, 6 years after he exposed the files..."

When the spouses and lovers of law enforcement agents ask for help to restrain their abusive law enforcement intimate partners but do not get it, why is it that society believes sex workers ought to 'get help' (being rescued for their own good) they don't ask for? Knowing that law enforcement officers are human and just as prone to violence as ANY OTHER human being, it is beyond me why the prohibitionists (those who want to abolish all prostitution/adult sex industry) would want to put the lives of those whom those prohibitionists deem 'victims' of 'exploitation' or 'degradation' in the hands of those who have proven they cannot be trusted to protect ANYONE- including their own families! If law enforcement agents can't keep from hurting the ones they supposedly love, how could they be expected to refrain from harming those whom society and the police believe are disposable human beings? (Cops have an unofficial term for prostitute victims of homicide- to them, we are NHIs- or "No Humans Involved..." and yet the media and society are convinced that we are better off in their custody????? All I can say to this utter nonsense is "Really?????")

NOTE: The majority of cases cited on this page are from 2011 2010 and 2009 because they were the easiest to track down and link to the original stories. As time passes, online newspapers tend to consign these types of stories to their archives where it is no longer possible to find the information. If you are unable to click on the links I have provided, please do a google search for the name to find the details of each case. I will provide links to pdfs of the stories in the future. For any journalist who may happen upon this list, these are not 'estimates' of victims of violent law enforcement agents, but actual cases.

  2. 1998- Milwaukee (WI) Police Officer Edward McCrary allegedly flew into a rage. Rachel McCrary, six months pregnant at the time, said her husband threw a phone at her, court documents said.  McCrary was charged with disorderly conduct. But that charge was later dismissed.  Three months later, however, McCrary allegedly caused “bodily harm” to Rachel McCrary's cousin. The Milwaukee Police were again dispatched to the scene. This time, police took McCrary to the County Jail. He was charged with battery. Edward McCrary was a Milwaukee police officer. In fact, as of 2006 he still was, even though the battery incident resulted in a criminal conviction for disorderly conduct. For his conviction, Judge Amato sentenced Edward McCrary to 24 hours in jail. “The public will at least know that symbolically you went in for a day, and that's fair and that's just, and that hereby is the judgment of the court.” Judge Amato closed the case by saying McCrary had been punished enough.

  1. 2000- Indiana State Trooper David Camm kills wife and children
  2. 2000- Seattle Police Officer Phil Rees- became intoxicated and violent. Wife calls for help. Rees' fellow officers arrive: "wife Jenifer Rees watched in disbelief as King County sheriff's deputies handed her intoxicated husband back his gun and let him drive away -- so he wouldn't miss work in the morning. "It was like, 'You're one of us, so you can leave,' " Jenifer Rees, 34, recalled. "He could have come back and blown my head off."
    Jenifer Rees says she was the victim of abuse at the hands of her former husband, Seattle police Officer Phil Rees. Jenifer said she knew her husband was armed and could track her down anywhere. He'd flown into a rage and slammed her into a wall, she told deputies, according to the police report. She showed them a scrape on the side of her head and said he had hurled a dresser drawer at her. But rather than further incite his wrath, she refused to cooperate in the investigation. Phil Rees denied the allegations. No charges were filed. The Seattle Police Department didn't discipline the veteran officer, who had been accused of domestic violence before, in 1998 and 1999."  (from Seattle Post Intelligencer "Cops who abuse their wives rarely pay the price" 2003 By RUTH TEICHROEB AND JULIE DAVIDOW SEATTLE POST-INTELLIGENCER REPORTERS

  17. 2008- Milwaukee  (WI) police officer Patrick Fuhrman faced up to three and a half years in prison after investigators said he beat a woman. At the time of his arrest, he was a nine-year veteran of the police department. According to a criminal complaint, Fuhrman beat a woman (his wife) at his home. Fuhrman grabbed his wife by the neck and threw her to the ground. The force caused her to hit her head on the floor and bite her lip. He punched her several times in the head, then in the nose. While she was on the ground, he kicked her and stomped on her repeatedly, calling her a "n----- lovin' crazy whore woman." UPDATE: Jeffrey Greipp, then an assistant district attorney, initially charged Fuhrman with domestic violence-related substantial battery, a felony. A conviction on that charge would have cost him his job. Within five weeks, prosecutors reduced the felony charge against Fuhrman to misdemeanor battery, according to court records. A conviction on that charge would have knocked him off the force as well. Because his wife was the victim, he would not have been allowed to carry a gun under federal law. A deferred-prosecution agreement, signed by Assistant District Attorney Gilbert F. Urfer in March 2009, reduced the charge even more and saved Fuhrman's job

Finally, if you have come to the bottom of this long and horrible list of abusive cops but you know of yet another law enforcement agent who needs to be listed here, by all means, send me the info.  Same goes for if you know what happened to any of these officers after they were arrested... Please send the link(s) to the original article online as well as any resolution to the case (was the cop suspended, charges dropped or not filed, fired, still employed in law enforcement?) to me at normajeanalmodovar [at] gmail.com. And whatever you do, do not try to tell me that sex work is more dangerous than being married to or being the lover of a cop. If you are unable to see the truth as shown by the actions of law enforcement officers on this and the other pages on this site, you are truly beyond hope and I really do not wish to hear from you. It would be a waste of my time and I don't have time to deal with idiots.
