    Great! Now if we could only get every missing person's case to be the number one story of the year...we might get somewhere in shining the spotlight on the problem worldwide.

    This case does have elements you would find in a mystery novel, but fact can be indeed stranger than fiction. I hope the story stays on the front pages until Stacy is found and brought home to her family. This case can be solved and the person responsible brought to justice. Let's hope it isn't the story of the year NEXT year!

    I know you guys don't necessarily like the National Enquirer, but they have another SP story in the latest issue. It's mostly about how SP told the preacher that she knew about DP killing Kathleen and that DP told her she was to be his alibi. One thing that they did mention that I can't recall hearing about, was that after SP was calling DP on the cell phone when she awoke and he wasn't in bed, she woke up later when he finally came home and found him dressed in black "like a ninja", washing Kathleen's clothes! Has this been reported before? I can't recall.

    "This is just another case of what happened to me happening to someone else," Peterson, the ex-cop whose wife Stacy vanished more than two months ago, said of the case of Anu Solanki. "This happens all the time. I'm just another victim of it."

    Can you believe this guy! He needs some serious couch work...after Stacy comes back home. Poor Drew, he's always the victim. :boohoo: Gimme a break! :furious:

    Yes it was on Fox News, but it was reported as "women's clothes" not specifically Kathleen's even though that's who we assume they belonged to.

    He's nauseating to me how he thinks of himself so much and what a victim HE is. Doesn't he ever think about his children being without their mom?

    Who didn't know this was coming?! DP and Brodsky are going to take this case and use it for all its worth, of course! When women like her take off without alerting LE and family, they should be charged with a crime, imo. It is nothing short of criminal when LE has to take their resources off one case and go on a wild goose chase after some selfish imp. The penalties for such need to be strengthened and LE needs a campaign to thwart it from happening in the future.

    I think they should counter his statements with a little about this recent study that I discovered.

    There have recently been a few policemen or former policemen who've made headlines that included 'domestic violence.' It's been rumored and suggested that DP was, IS, an abuser. I found this study regarding 'Policemen and Domestic Violence.'

    Very enlightening and something to think about with regard to this case, IMHO.......

    Just like the Laci Peterson case brought to the forefront the facts about 'domestic violence and pregnancy,' perhaps this case, as well as other recent cases, can bring the spotlight to 'policemen and domestic violence' and this cyle or trend can be stopped. I see that the City of Chicago has taken corrective steps and I applaud them. Perhaps they can give some pointers to some of these other locations mentioned in this study.

    This is really worth the read and some of the links also. Puts a WHOLE perspective on this case, imo.

    JMHO,

    Police Family Violence Fact Sheet
    Two studies have found that at least 40% of police officer families experience domestic violence, (1, 2) in contrast to 10% of families in the general population.(3) A third study of older and more experienced officers found a rate of 24% (4), indicating that domestic violence is 2-4 times more common among police families than American families in general. A police department that has domestic violence offenders among its ranks will not effectively serve and protect victims in the community.5, 6, 7, 8 Moreover, when officers know of domestic violence committed by their colleagues and seek to protect them by covering it up, they expose the department to civil liability.7

    ........................snip.....................

    Unique Vulnerability
    Domestic violence is always a terrible crime, but victims of a police officer are particularly vulnerable because the officer who is abusing them:

    has a gun,
    knows the location of battered women's shelters, and
    knows how to manipulate the system to avoid penalty and/or shift blame to the victim.5, 6

    Victims often fear calling the police, because they know the case will be handled by officers who are colleagues and/or friends of their abuser. Victims of police family violence typically fear that the responding officers will side with their abuser and fail to properly investigate or document the crime.5, 7

    Failure of Departmental PoliciesThese suspicions are well founded, as most departments across the country typically handle cases of police family violence informally, often without an official report, investigation, or even check of the victim's safety.5, 8, 9 This "informal" method is often in direct contradiction to legislative mandates and departmental policies regarding the appropriate response to domestic violence crimes. Moreover, a 1994 nationwide survey of 123 police departments documented that almost half (45%) had no specific policy for dealing with officer-involved domestic violence.
