Domestic Violence is a Family Matter/Issue…is it Really?

This morning, I woke up to my Father watching the news about a man that was in a van and may be dead following a police chase, stand off, explosions, and failed negotiations. 

On the news, I’ve heard it mentioned several times that the suspect, if indeed James Boulware, has a history of domestic violence.  I heard also that he was upset because the state took away his child from him.

Of course, at this time no-one has much information, but the fact that domestic violence was prevalent in this man with a troubled past and even more troubling ending, wasn’t surprising.  It truly brought to mind the fact that so many still stand by their thinking that “Domestic Violence is a family problem”… is it really?

As many of us already know…change of mind set is needed, and Domestic Violence needs to be seen for what it really is… a Social Issue that needs to be taken more seriously and where much more work and support is needed.

Stay Safe!

Dallas Police Headquarters Shooting

Before he was shot, the suspect ranted to police by phone, giving his name and alleging police were responsible for his child having been taken from him, but investigators haven't confirmed his identity, Brown said.

After a gunfire exchange, police called the man for negotiations. The suspect in the vehicle gave police the name James Boulware. Police said that they couldn't immediately confirm that it is the suspect's real identity.

Police found a previous record of domestic violence by a man under that name.
