At the expense of the taxpayers of Utah and the lives of well-meaning police officers who were wringing their hands about how to help this young couple without giving them criminal records? JMO, but I think fund-raising would be a better way to fund awareness-raising campaigns.I think the point of the 50 million dollar lawsuit is awareness. This will bring that. Any settlement will likely fund future education, awareness and support but the process will bring media attention. LE training and retraining. And IMO the ultimate goal -- to bring awareness into relationships, families, schools, communities so that young people better rrecognize the signs of abuse early and have resources to leave safely.
What's that saying, every time a bell rings, an angel gets her wings?
Because the P family has chosen to honor Gabby's memory in such a full extraordinary, and gracious way, maybe every time a life is saved from the horrors of DV, every time a potential agent of DV learns a better way to deal with inadequacy, every time LE intervenes in a productive way, every time there's a model for healthy relationshipping, Gabby gets another feather in her wings?
IMO out of Gabby's tragedy lives will be saved.
