    Another killed by getting in between :

    Police: Maryland officer shot, killed while intervening in domestic dispute @ Police: Maryland officer shot, killed while intervening in domestic dispute

    All you have to do is conduct an internet search like the one @ police officers killed involved in domestic disputes - Bing to see page after page of reports about police officers being shot and killed while responding to domestic dispute calls.

    Most officers will tell you they are the calls they hate the most. So, why do we keep sending them out for them?

    Tell me what YOU think. No flaming please.

    Because that's their job?

    I'm trying to be nice and CDZ here, but the reason why we pay cops more than I make is because we want them to deal with this sort of unpleasant stuff.

    And since the Police Departments aren't advocating for common sense gun laws, I can't get terribly worked up when 50 of the 33,000 gun deaths we have every year are police officers doing their jobs.

    Joe is right, but it still is dangerous. Perhaps there should be two cars going to each domestic call. It used to be that each officer had a partner. We should get back to that.

    I agree with Jackson. The police should always work with a partner. Domestic calls are especially dicey.

    Should police stop responding to domestic disputes? No. Their job is serve and protect. That includes domestic disputes.

    Cops don't make a lot of money Joe. Sorry to hear you make less.

    Cops I know do pretty well.

    Small town cops, they can be poorly paid.

    Somewhat more. Nice house in the suburbs, two cars, money to travel a lot domestically, seems not money stressed.


    Not a lot of cash on hand, though to be honest.

    Still not "pretty well," particularly considering the dangers they face every day. A veteran NYC cop makes 90k. That amount of money in NYC, aint' shit.

    Annual Pay Increases
    Pay increases for NYPD officers are small during the early years on the job but increase significantly over time. After two-and-a-half years on the job, a police officer receives a base salary of $48,779 and a total compensation package of $53,819. Base salaries increase on an annual basis by $3,000 to $5,000 over the next few years. Halfway through a cop's sixth year on the job, his base salary jumps from $56,609 to $76,488 per year.
    The total compensation package of a cop with five-and-a-half years experience amounts to $90,829. Salary for a Rookie Cop in the NYPD

    Glen Tyndell is listed in another article (and PGPD News) as an "estranged husband" that showed up in front of her house with a shot gun. This one wasn't a call. The woman involved and the officer were neighbors. That would explain why Mujahid A. Ramazziddin was alone.

    That said, statistic wise that is when an officer is most likely to get shot when responding to domestic violence calls. Women are most likely to be murdered when leaving leaving their male partner. They call out of fear (except for people who are deep in BS) and because a Protection Order or Restraining Order (if you have one) looks lovely on paper but doesn't hold any magical powers when held up as a shield.

    Should they stop responding to them? Can't. In the bigger picture, we give up the right to be judge and jury.
