    I also think that the officer really was trying to be reasonable and act as a human being rather than just a robotic enforcer. I imagine he is beating himself up over all of this but also cannot be to blame because they would have reunited immediately, but probably would have had fights directly related to the stress of court appearances and etc. The problems in their relationship were clearly there before the incident.

    Yes, I have total rain envy. I'd kill for that right now.

    And, the officer looked at the marks on her face and neck and reported to the others that 'she has marks on her, too.'

    Yet they never checked her thoroughly like they did Brian. I wonder what they would have seen if they had. IMO

    It happens when there is very high traffic.

    Why does the search warrant say signed 9/16 but they just did it today?

    Do we know for sure these were stickers and not magnets?

    IMO Gabby was clearly showing signs of an emotional/mental crisis. Had they had the training to recognize that and gotten her evaluated, it would have been revealed that she was a suffering from emotional abuse at the hands of her boyfriend. Had that happened, I believe she would be alive today.

    In this report it states, "no one reported that the male struck the female"

    He spoke with Chris, Brian and Gabby and they all gave the same story

    Removing stickers would be one way to make the van less memorable to passersby.

    I think those were the styrofoam coolers they used to bring in LE's lunches and cold drinks. MOO

    Some interesting stuff in the warrant. Apparently her van’s license plate was read as it entered North Port via the Sumter Blvd. exit of I-75 on September 1, 2021 at 10:26 am.

    There are several statements regarding her mental health at the time. “Based on the totality of the circumstances related to the subject’s (Gabby) mental health, I believe there is probable cause to believe the subject is unable to care for herself due to her increased anxiety.”

    But no! Lack of training or requiring comprehension is not an excuse nor a justification for "well, what could they do.". The lack of training IS the problem. It is hardly new news how the very nature of abuser-victim dynamics keeps victims from being able to speak up, protect the abuser, believe the twisted garbage about themselves that the abuser drills into their heads - in short the whole mental hold - exists and protects abusers.

    She could have him programmed in as Granpa Stan. Between parents and step-parents, it's not unlikely that she had more than one Granpa. BL, in his haste to make the situation go away, may not have put much thought into how he referred to Granpa/Stan.

    Things that stand out in the warrant:

    1. Repeated reference to Gabby's mental health. She was deemed to be 'endangered' and with concern that she could not care for herself based on her increased anxiety.

    2. The van's license plate was scanned arriving in North Port, Florida on the morning of 9/1. No word on who was driving it.

    MOO.

    This was not today's. Today's hasn't been released yet. This one was just released and "we" are waiting on today's.

    And they conveniently forget that the 911 caller reported that he was slapping her and chasing her down the street.

    If you've watched the video you can see the
    park ranger vehicles and insignia on the uniforms.

    You know after reading this I'm wondering if the LE said this to prompt BL to defend GP?? He didn't.
