Can you say that now?

04/10/2018

Those who study it have known for decades. ER nurses and doctors, women’s shelter workers; they all know. Some talk if you ask but they don’t make a big deal of it, even though the costs and consequences are devastating. There’s women who have known for far too long.

Cops know too. Cops know better than most. Cops know they’re more likely to be killed or seriously hurt on a domestic violence call than any other kind of police work. And they know when most of them happen. I learned about it from police statistics. Long ago.

One of them has finally said it.
Maybe it’s time for a conversation.
