I never had an ounce of HELP in all the years of Richard Zona Jr’s domestic abuse, coercive control, fraud, and theft of me from the police. As you tell your story you feel as though you are talking to a brick wall. In my experience, and I have too much, the police are not motivated to help an abuse victim. You can’t ask all the dead victims, but since I am still alive, I will tell you. Is it a “failure to communicate.?” NO. I never felt that. I always felt as a woman my story was unimportant. The same responses over and over, your married, it’s simply a domestic dispute. Get a restraining order….as if that helped any of the dead abuse victims. First you have to pay to find the mother fucker, they play chess, and usually monetary resources are limited as the abuser has financial control. And a restraining order does not stop a monster from killing you. I asked once….CAN YOU AT LEAST PLEASE CALL HIM TO PUT HIM ON NOTICE A POLICE REPORT HAS BEEN MADE? “No” they said. Victims, like myself are left to manage an enraged MADMAN all by themselves, and their flying monkeys. It’s not a “failure to communicate” IT IS A FAILURE IN OUR SYSTEM. These women, myself included, can not manage the MONSTER ALONE.
Two recent news stories are examples of the police dropping the BALL with dire results. I have needed help for thirteen years….Richard Zona Jr. still is in contempt of court, still has my jewelry and car he stole, and still has my money from my marital home and bottled water business he committed FRAUD to accomplish theft. But as AWFUL as my story is…..here is two more JUST THIS WEEK.
Early Epstein accuser: Police could have stopped him in 1997
~More than two decades before Jeffrey Epstein took his own life, a woman went into a California police station and filed one of the earliest sex-crime complaints against him: that he groped her during what she thought was a modeling interview for the Victoria’s Secret catalog. Alicia Arden said she never heard back from investigators about her complaint. No charges ever came of it. And to this day she sees it as a glaring missed opportunity to bring the financier to justice long before he was accused of sexually abusing dozens of teenage girls and women.
“If they would have taken me more seriously than they did, it could have helped all these girls,” said Arden, an actress and model. “It could have been stopped.”~
~Woman killed by ex-boyfriend after police were warned 18 times of his abuse
Laura Stuart told officers her partner was threatening ‘to finish her’ three days before attack~
Laura Stuart was subjected to escalating “distress, isolation and humiliation” in the two years leading up to her death, an independent report into police conduct found.
The 33-year-old was murdered by her former partner Jason Cooper as she was walking home from a night out in Denbigh, North Wales, on 12 August 2017. Cooper stabbed Ms Stuart in the street with a kitchen knife and then kicked her in the face and chest after she had collapsed to the pavement. She died in hospital two days later.
Three days before the attack, Ms Stuart had warned police that Cooper was threatening “to finish her”.
Ms Stuart is one of 55 British women killed by men they knew after they had reported abuse over three years between 2015 and 2017, a Freedom of Information request found. Across Wales, nine women were killed.
The Independent Office for Police Conduct (IOPC) found 18 reports were made to North Wales Police between August 2015 and August 2017 concerning Ms Stuart and Cooper, including allegations of assault and verbal altercations.
“Reports made to police included allegations that Mr Cooper had used violence, made threats, had financial influence over Laura, attempted to remove her from the house following arguments and had threatened to distribute intimate photographs of her,”
But prior to Ms Stuart’s murder, Cooper was not arrested or interviewed about the alleged domestic abuse.
“If they’d [the police] actually spoken to him, actually physically went and spoken to him, gave him a little bit of a push to say stop messaging her and stop harassing her, I think maybe he would have listened – you’d hope that he would have listened.”
OUR WORLD PERMITS ABUSE OF OTHERS!
