WTF moment

For the last week or so the radio news has been talking about domestic violence. One of the churches in Beloit has their array of plywood silhouettes out representing victims of domestic violence.

Lots of talks on preventing violence. Being the cynic I am, I am sure that these lectures and meetings are going to prevent some drunk cretin from beating on his wife and kids, but at least people are trying to do something.

The WTF moment came with the news a couple minutes ago - the police decided, probably because of all the publicity, to stage a series of raids serving domestic violence warrants that evidently had been sitting around, ignored.

Perhaps the problem of domestic violence could be lessened if the police did NOT ignore things like this until the public outcry got loud?

WTF, indeed.
