I must say I just love this article. Honestly, how can this "man" repeatedly get away with this time and time again? This is the second time Mrs. Cordwell has had him arrested. He obviously has a problem with beating women as I know he has done this in the past, on various occasions. How many other times have there been that she has not reported or was she just too coked out to realize he was beating her? Mr. Cordwell will not be happy until he has killed someone and if Mrs. Cordwell keeps taking him back, like she always does, it may just be her. It will take someone strong enough to stand up to him before he will truly learn his lesson. The fact that he can maintain a Government job at the St. Lawrence Seaway, with all of these arrests and snort coke like it is his job, is beyond me. Karma will catch up with Shawn someday, that I know

Why would she stay with him? That's just crazy! Maybe they both need to get help.

I agree, they both need help. Drug and alcohol detox seems to be in order for the two of them. This is one of those stories that all you can really do is laugh because you know, in another month or year we will be reading the same thing again. She stays with him because he makes the money working at the Seaway to support her drug habit and he stays with her because he doesn't know any different and needs someone to take care of him. Kelly wasn't even the one that turned him in to the police in the first place, the hospital did. Shawn will get away with this because both his mommy and Kelly's mommy work for the town of Massena so it will all be swept away, just like his past two arrests that were never reported.

I agree, he is a loser and a woman beater. He put his ex in the hospital and broke various bones on her. But, as far as the job goes, he will never get fired from that job. He knows too many people
