Here’s a story of an officer balancing “doing the right thing” with “doing her job.” Not that theft or shoplifting is ever the right thing to do in Minnesota, or any other state, but hopefully this story has a happy ending.
Domestic Abuse and Child Abuse is always a sad situation. This guy has a history, which many of the most dangerous offenders do, and unfortunately the ultimate tragedy came of it. If you are in Minnesota, or anywhere else for that matter, and there is Domestic Assault/Violence or Child Abuse in your home (or you know of it occurring in someone else’s home), please report it and seek the necessary help. There are many shelters out there set up for the purpose of helping victims. Silence will not stop the problem.
If you file a lawsuit in which you are claiming an injury, you should always be cautious; however, this situation takes that to the exteme.
When you are about to post something on a social media website, stop and remember that your post will potentially be seen by everyone…….including, in some circumstances, the police.
