Default Woman Found Murdered 2 Days After 911 Call

This lady was found dead two days after calling 911 and reporting that her husband was attacking her. Police responded, requested a call back that went to voice mail, checked w/neighbors and left the scene. A fine job by the Dallas PD.

Quote:
Once obtaining an address, the dispatcher gave the call to the first available police field element. The officers that received the call arrived at the location and knocked at the door. When no one answered, they requested a call-back of the caller which went to voicemail. They also checked the perimeter windows of the home and spoke with neighbors who reported that they had not heard any disturbance.

.................................................. .................................................. .


According to police records, Deanna Cook called 911 about 10:54 a.m. Friday. She could be heard screaming for her ex-husband to stop attacking her. "Delvecchio, why are you doing this?" Cook yelled, according to police records.

"Red, please stop, I didn't do anything to you," she said, referring to him by his nickname. ...

Two days later, as Cook's family grew concerned about her well-being, they went to the home and found her dead.

Even worse: Delvecchio Patrick, the blog noted, "has a history of alleged domestic violence against his wife, Dallas County court records show."

and yet people still think the police are a better protection option than a firearm.

The police have no legal responsibility to provide protection to any individual citizen.
This has been discussed here before,I believe,and if anyone makes me have to go find the relevant court cases making a post demanding that I prove it,I'll scream bloody murder.I swear I will.Go find it yourself.

Anyway,I often am at a thoughtful conundrum where I wonder if the police have been found to have no legal demand to provide the protection that taxpayers believe they are paying for,isn't that misrepresentation of a service?

If the police cannot be held legally accountable for providing defense then technically all their true job remains to be is to investigate crimes and enforce myriad and sundry laws that usually result in fines that benefit the state.

In other words,by law- they are there to enforce and collect,not serve and protect.

(this does not reflect on the duty records of any particular officer,nor is this meant as a "bash",this is simply me pointing out the legal facts and what I believe to be the ramifications of such)

Maybe they should take that stupid lettering off of the patrol cars that says "to serve and protect".

What and write the truth?

"To Enforce and Collect" might not be such a popular slogan.........

They don't have them on NYPD Police cars. They have the "Courtesy, Professionalism, Respect" slogan which is a really big lie.

We had a 911 call the other night. DB would not answer the door, then got upset that we kicked the door in. "I don't have to answer the door." You're right, right. You do not have to answer the door after your girlfriend calls 911. Just don't be surprised when we kick the door in to make sure she is OK. And, no. We are not paying for the door.

I have a feeling this is "damned if you do and damned if you don't". You're the kind of cop I'd want in my town. Thank you.
