this MUST stop. it MUST STOP NOW

back in the day, NO ONE and i mean NO one did anything when a woman was beaten by her domestic partner. the police in many cases used to just ignore it or laugh it off....

UNTIL tracey thurman spoke. then laws changed. people listed. police responded (lots of times by arresting BOTH domestic partners, not just the one causing the abuse).

lots of times women won't report domestic violence. they're afraid of what the neighbors will say. what their co workers will say. they're afraid of being fired. they're afraid of being on their own

when they DO report domestic violence and get protective orders, IT DOESN'T WORK. how many women have to be hurt and killed in the united the world before we heal this oozing sore?

Police Investigate Suspected Domestic Homicide In Chester

By DAVID OWENS The Hartford Courant

CHESTER - State police are investigating a suspected domestic homicide on Bailey Road.

Troopers were summoned to the home about 7:15 p.m. by a woman who called 911 to report that her husband was breaking into her home. The woman told police that she had a protective order against her husband. The phone then suddenly went dead.

Troopers responded and found a woman inside the home with multiple stab wounds. She was rushed to Middlesex Hospital in Middletown and was pronounced dead a short time later.

Police then broadcast a description of the woman's husband and his car, and he was stopped on Route 9 near Exit 2 in Old Saybrook and taken into custody, police said......

Hot Topic: Domestic Violence
Can the new legislative proposals help domestic violence victims?

By Nick Handler

Earlier this month, a domestic violence task force, convened by Speaker of the House Chris Donovan (D-Meriden) released an 11-page report of legislative suggestions for strengthening laws and giving victims more protection. The report was released just two weeks after a tragic murder-suicide in West Haven, that underscored the need for stronger victim protections.

Why make these recommendations now?

There were several shockingly violent high-profile cases last year that led up to the creation of Donovan's task force in November.

In June 2009 a Vernon woman was killed by her husband, who then killed himself.

Perhaps the most shocking case was that of Nancy Tyler, whose former husband kidnapped her in July and held her hostage for 12 hours while she was handcuffed; he repeatedly threatened to kill her while holding a gun to her temple. She escaped and he then set the house on fire.

In August, a West Hartford man stabbed his wife to death; police had been called to the house twice before on charges of his assaulting her.

Most recently, West Haven resident Selami Ozdemir fatally shot his wife, Shengyl Rasim, on Jan. 17 before turning the gun on himself. Ozdemir killed his wife after he violated a protective order twice in 12 hours..........

i want everyone to watch this and

&take note of this woman. child protective services better NEVER give this woman back her daughter. just because you can BEAR a child, doesn't mean you're a mother.

my favorite part? kasseris STILL doesn't understand why one shouldn't leave an 11 year old alone for DAYS AT A TIME. kasseris said there was no problem. the 11 year old COULD have gone to a neighbor if she needed anything

well, i'm begging the court to punish this woman to the full extent of the law. what she did to her 11 year old daughter is life altering. it appears she may have left the girl alone very often.

On 'ask,' Lieberman answers the call: An exclusive chat about Don't Ask, Don't Tell

James Kirchick

WASHINGTON - Just when you thought Joe Lieberman couldn't frustrate and perplex liberals any further, he is going off to become chief sponsor of the most significant piece of socially progressive legislation that Congress will deal with this year.

Next week, the Connecticut senator will announce that he's taking the lead on repeal of Don't Ask, Don't Tell, the 1993 law that prohibits gay people from serving openly in the armed forces. Since implementation of the statute nearly 20 years ago, the military has discharged some 14,000 qualified men and women, many of them serving in critical jobs like Arabic and Persian translation.

It's an unconscionable policy, as it forces individuals willing to die for their country to lie to their comrades and lowers the overall quality of our fighting force............

and from joe at america blog

Lieberman to sponsor DADT repeal. Key for success is including it in Def. authorization.
