Important links

Here are a few articles that make some important links in domestic violence cases.

Domestic violence victim, Maria Garcia, “feared” getting help

She said Maria went to the police station more than once, but never filed a report. She said her friend feared talking to police would make the situation more dangerous for her four children.

Fear – not stupidity – is what often keeps women from leaving their abuser. They may be fearful for their lives, their children, or even their pets. It’s important that the media communicate this.

Dad charged with stalking daughter

Dennis Hobbs, 59, is barred by a restraining order from going near his 19-year-old daughter now.

 Police said they found a loaded gun, a video camera, a wig and a notebook detailing his daughter’s whereabouts in Hobbs’ car.

 Hobbs was dressed in black and had painted his face black, police said.

 He was arrested after being spotted driving slowly around a women’s shelter where his daughter told police she had taken refuge out of fear of an overly protective and religious father who disapproved of her relationship with her boyfriend.

 Hobbs’ attorney called it a case of a concerned father worried about his daughter living in a high-crime neighborhood.

 According to the police report, Hobbs sent his daughter several e-mails prior to his arrest.

 One read, “I love you, but there is no loving way to do what I must.”

 When he was arrested, Hobbs told police, “You just signed her death certificate.”

This is what women fear – retaliation for seeking help.

 And here’s an important link:  child custody

Lake Havasu man kills 5, then himself Suspect in custody dispute with mother of children, police say

Police said Sunday that the alleged gunman, 26-year-old Brian Diez, had fathered 4-year-old Kaia Diez and 1-year-old Cole Diez with Langstaff.

 Lake Havasu City police Sgt. Joe Harrold says Diez was arrested Aug. 13 for violating a protection order Langstaff had against him.

 When police responded to the home, they discovered four people dead at the scene and two others — 20-year-old Brock Kelson and 44-year-old Deborah Nyland — needing medical attention. Police said Sunday that the alleged gunman, 26-year-old Brian Diez, had fathered 4-year-old Kaia Diez and 1-year-old Cole Diez with Langstaff.

    Sorry to leave you hanging: trial results “NOT GUILTY”; and if you lost a daughter and $150,000 to lies and a false arrest, you just may be a little upset yourself.

    The next step a summer 2012 civil trial against four police in St. Petersburg, FL I’ll tell you how much the City has to pay OR watch http://www.PICTYS.com as well.

    Last, men can be the victim too.

  2. Dennis Hobbs says:

    WOW, you believe what the medial and police lie about.

    Do you want the truth? Go to http://www.PICTYS.com and read it there.

    But I bet you do not, because no one wants the facts, just the media’s sensationalism.

    I am he and the truth is there!

    I simply posted an article – I did not write the article. Surely, this is crystal clear. But your comment speaks volumes with its accusations, paranoia and anger. Not exactly the words of an innocent and caring father – more like a defensive tirade. I agree with you on this point – May justice be served.

  4. Father Stalks Daughter says:

    OK, you accuse me based on what the police said. Guess what they lie and grossly exaggerate the facts.
    APRIL 12, 2010 in the Clearwater Fl. 6th judicial curcuit court; [court room to be determined], appear with cameras and your gullible staff. Hear the jury decide what was a crime or illegal, not some cop in St. Pete, not the cream of the top.
    SO ARE YOU UP FOR PRINTING AND COVERING THE TRUTH? BE THERE OR TAKE YOU LIES OUT OF THIS. YOU HAVE NO IDEA OF THE FACTS.

    A REPLY WOULD BE APPRECIATED, EMAIL OR PHONE 727-871-6863.

    IT’S TIME TO SEE THE DAMAGE THAT YOU DID TO AN INNOCENT FATHER WHO LOVES AND ALWAYS CARED FOR HIS DAUGHTER.

    DON’T LEAVE THIS STORY AND ME HANGING; BE THERE APRIL 12, 2011,

    a father maligned by you!
