Kudos to the victim for finding the courage to make the call. There are way too many situations like this where the perpetrator uses his/her 'position of power' to hide their abuse. We should not be surprised with this article.

I would say this puts a dent in those that believe law enforcement officers are above the law, don't you agree, Kevin?

Why didn"t his co-workers arrest him when the call came in like everyone else? Why an outside group and not until the next day. Special treatment for cops is wrong. He should have been cuffed and stuffed the night of the call and brought in front of the judge the next day like the rest of the women beaters are. Remember if convicted he loses his right to bear arms which leads to him losing his job. "IF" key word anyone willing to bet on this and I am sure this forum will be gone tomorrow.

This isn't the first incident he's been charged with. No worries though, after he's fired by the VSP, he'll be one of the BCSD's most qualified officers! "A few good men."

If you were really in the know like I am Max Rockatansky you would know who I am. I have seen you respond "Marky" to a number of different people here in Topix. Back a while your comeback was always "Gary" if I remember correctly. Well here is your chance to be right for the first time ever big boy.

How many times have you seen blue lights in your rear view mirror pal?

Lindsey,Perhaps your sister really is a victim of abuse and is ashamed to admit it to her family. It happens. After all the drama of how they came to be together, maybe she doesn't want to admit that she made a huge mistake.
If you truly believe Tim to be a "great" guy, I'm sorry to inform you that you are in the minority on this one. Plenty of people that know him and know him well, are not the least bit surprised by these allegations.
There will of course be an investigation, and it will all get swept under the rug I'm sure.
I will end with this: I guess the grass isn't always greener on the other side of the fence though is it? As it turns out, grass is just grass.
