So said Nez when he tweeted about this story: Police chief fired for using taser on wife (News video there).
From the AP:
OAKWOOD, Texas (AP) — The chief of a small Central Texas town's police department has been fired and jailed for allegedly using a Taser gun on his wife.I don't have a lot to add--we know that abusive police officers prey on vulnerable and marginalized people and communities. So it's no surprise that women who live with men who are abusive and who are trained how to restrain people and how to use deadly force, are at risk.
Former Oakwood police chief Oly Ivy is in Leon County Jail in Centerville on Wednesday, charged with aggravated assault. Bond is $100,000.
They might be, as this fact sheet describes, "uniquely vulnerable."
yet another "expected" but infuriating event. ugh.
thanks for giving me the words i needed to justify my fear of men who are trained to kill and my argument that i would never date one:
"women who live with men who are abusive and who are trained how to restrain people and how to use deadly force, are at risk."
seriously, that title says it all....
