New Jersey Cop Kills Ex-wife

Image credit patch.com

Each year we talk about protecting women from abuse and call for an end to domestic violence but how much of this is just lip service? Is everything being done to protect  women?

If we take a look at what happened to fifty-one year-old Tamara Seidle it seems like the answer is no. Seidle was shot to death by her ex-husband who incidentally is a police Sgt. Their seven-year-old daughter was put through the trauma of seeing her father killing her mother.

This woman was in an abusive relationship. She knew her life was in danger and sought help but received none. According to reports she made several attempts to get a restraining order and was not granted one. Her ex-husband was an esteemed member of the police department and maintaining his high status was apparently more important than saving her life.Tamara Seidle died because the system failed her.  How many more women will have to die before we stop talking and start implementing stronger measures to protect them?

    I have mentioned on my blog and others that I was a child advocate at a battered women’s shelter. I feel for women who are brave and try to escape and protect their children, too. I wis the police would make a stand against violence and not protect “their own” offenders.

    This is so terrible that corruption still has so much power. It is shocking and should finally make people on the important positions think.

  4. The system is flawed on many levels but when the abusive relationship involves a member of law enforcement it’s a whole new ballgame. I hope he is prosecuted to the fullest extent of the law.
