Back in 1991, researcher L.B. Johnson studied domestic violence amongst police officers. Johnson found that 40 percent of police officer families experience domestic violence, as compared to 10 percent of the general population. Regardless of the rate, domestic violence by LEOs is often swept under the rug. Even after a conviction, some 50 percent of abusive cops keep their job. The media’s silent complicity is abhorrent. “Drunk officer gets shot in gun battle with fellow officers” the YouTube headline proclaims, downplaying the domestic abuse component. Was the officer in question jailed for domestic violence and assaulting his brother officers? Nope. But he was suspended without pay. For now. And so it goes . . .
