Domestic Violence Among Illegal Immigrants

With all the talk about illegal immigrants crossing our borders lately, specifically in Arizona, it was brought to my attention the dilemma of illegal domestic violence victims trying to get help. An illegal immigrant woman that has been beaten by her husband cannot go to the police for help. Arizona law would allow police officers to question a woman's residential status. This in turn would get her deported and the man that abused the woman would probably disappear from Arizona and go to another state!

How does this sit with you? Is she entitled to be protected by our police, even though she doesn't pay taxes? Many illegal immigrants get medical care in this country, just as legal citizens do. Would this be considered a medical emergency? Should illegal immigrant domestic violence victims be helped?

Mace Triple Action Police Model Pepper Spray

Mace brand pepper sprays have been around for ages! Women and men have relied on Mace pepper sprays for self defense because they trust it's powerful and reliable spray. Mace Triple Action Police Model is the same spray used by police officers around the country. Police prefer the OC and tear gas combination. The OC pepper causes the attacker's eyes to slam shut, and have uncontrollable coughing and choking. The tear gas will cause profuse tearing, an intense burning sensation to the face, and disorientation.

It has a convenient finger flip-up cap, that protects you from accidental spraying. This powerful and reliable 18-gram pepper spray and tear gas combination, contains 10, one-second bursts and sprays 1 to 12 feet away!

This Mace Triple Action Police Model also has a key chain, to conveniently attach your car and house keys. Plus it includes a belt clip and a velcro attachment! It's also MADE IN THE USA!

Domestic Violence and Police Brutality

What does domestic violence have in common with police brutality? Unfortunately too much! Lately there have been cases of domestic violence being committed by police officers against their wives. In New York there will be a trial soon regarding a wife whose husband was a police officer who frequently aimed a gun at her. The last time, he did this, she got a hold of another of his guns and beat him to it by shooting him to death.

We all hear more often than not how women stick with their abusive husbands and how hard it is for these women to leave, especially if they have children. Well, it's probably twice as hard to leave your abusive husband if he is a cop and has control of his weapon 24 hours a day! I knew of a prison guard who abused 3 of his wives.  Luckily they were able to leave him! Which makes me think that this is just not limited to police, but also to any men that wear a uniform and carry a gun!

Another issue that is against abused wives of police officers is that fellow police officers side with him. If a wife calls for help, one of her husband's buddies answers to her desperate call for help. We all know how cops cover each other's backs. This makes it relatively impossible for the wife to get police protection and even worse, an officer to help her case against her abusive husband in court. This is another way of police brutality, not in the streets but in our courtrooms.

Domestic violence is a national problem and if it is committed by a cop against his own wife, it's much worse! Special attention must be taken for women in this situation. Courts need to somehow change procedures so that domestically abused women married to police officers, get a fair trial.
