[PA] Pittsburgh police are not tracking allegations of officer-involved domestic violence

Pittsburgh police fail to comply with law in tracking officer-involved domestic violence
Pittsburgh police are not tracking allegations of officer-involved domestic violence in the manner required by city law, more than a decade after city officials reformed the way such allegations were handled. The Pittsburgh Bureau of Police is required to keep two electronic databases that detail officer-involved domestic violence incidents and protection-from-abuse orders, according to a policy passed into city law in 2007 as part of a wider reform of the bureau’s reporting system. But following inquiries from the Pittsburgh Post-Gazette in the wake of a recent case involving an officer charged in a domestic dispute, city officials said Wednesday that no such databases exist. Mayor Bill Peduto on Monday ordered the police department to create the electronic databases by the end of the week... In a response to an open-records request and appeal filed with the state Office of Open Records by the Pittsburgh Post-Gazette, Deputy Chief Thomas Stangrecki said in a letter dated Wednesday that he could not find any electronic databases and could locate only a printed Excel file that was last updated in 2014...

Licking Co. Deputy Who Crashed Cruiser Into Home Charged With Domestic Violence

(Only this video, not it's accompanying article, mentions that the wife got a protection order. Articles mentioned his mental health, not the family's. The sheriff thought it was a good time to bring up how supportive he is of the deputies but said nothing about the safety of their families. Often wives feel they are in the police family - until there is family domestic trouble. Then usually the lines are drawn.)

May 4, 2018
[Excerpts] A Licking County Sheriff's deputy who crashed his cruiser into a Reynoldsburg home Wednesday afternoon has been charged with domestic violence for events preceding the crash. Deputy Jon Yeager, 39, has been charged with domestic violence, assault and disorderly conduct, Reynoldsburg Police Lt. Ron Wright said... The charges stem from an incident Wednesday afternoon at Yeager's family home... Yeager is alleged to have assaulted his wife and then calmed down, allowing his wife to get the couple's children and her mother and leave the home... Yeager left the house a short time later in his cruiser... Wright said there was no indication Yeager was pursuing his wife. "He gets into his cruiser and drives down the street at a high rate of speed and then crashed into the house on Ridgeline"... He remains hospitalized... Wright said Reynoldsburg officers have an arrest warrant in hand for Yeager and will transport him to the Franklin County Jail after he is released from the hospital. He will be housed in Franklin County to avoid potential security or conflict of interest issues related to his work as a sheriff's deputy... Wright said charges could potentially be filed in relation to the crash as well. All three charges Yeager currently faces are misdemeanors. [Full article here]

[NY] State Atty. Gen. Schneiderman accused by women of domestic violence

Update: Three hours after the publication of this story today by The NewYorker New York Attorney General Eric Schneiderman resigned from his position. Victims stories were vetted.

One of the women:
“This was under no circumstances a sex game gone wrong. This did not happen while we were having sex. I was fully dressed and remained that way. It was completely unexpected and shocking. I did not consent to physical assault."

Four Women Accuse New York’s Attorney General of Physical Abuse
March 7, 2018
[Excerpts] As Eric Schneiderman used the authority of his office to assume a major role in the #MeToo movement, the distress of four women with whom he has had romantic relationships or encounters grew... All have been reluctant to speak out, fearing reprisal. But two of the women, Michelle Manning Barish and Tanya Selvaratnam, have talked to The New Yorker on the record, because they feel that doing so could protect other women. They allege that he repeatedly hit them, often after drinking, frequently in bed and never with their consent. Manning Barish and Selvaratnam categorize the abuse he inflicted on them as “assault.” They did not report their allegations to the police at the time, but both say that they eventually sought medical attention after having been slapped hard across the ear and face, and also choked. Selvaratnam says that Schneiderman warned her he could have her followed and her phones tapped, and both say that he threatened to kill them if they broke up with him.... A third former romantic partner of Schneiderman’s told Manning Barish and Selvaratnam that he also repeatedly subjected her to nonconsensual physical violence, but she told them that she is too frightened of him to come forward...
