Cindy Bischof did everything in her power, and yet, she tragically lost here life in spite of her efforts. While pleased that the story made the front page of the Sunday Chicago Tribune. Perhaps it will spark a fire under elected officicals to provide safety measures for victims that go beyond court orders of protection and jail time for offenders.
The headline across the Sunday paper read "The Law Didn't Save Her"
She tried a court order. She had him arrested. She took all the legal steps she could right up to the day her ex-boyfriend shot her dead in a parking lot. Here's link for the story:http://www.chicagotribune.com/news/local/chi-domestic-violence_bd16mar16,1,2303253.story
In an earlier post on 3/11/2008 :http://murphymilanojournal.blogspot.com/search/label/Cindy%20Bischof I ask for the public's help.
And come to think of it, a CEO or two from companies like CitiCorp, Bank of America, Verizon Wireless, American Express, AT&T , just to name a few, would also fuel the measures required to meet the needs as it pertains to safety when women leave behind their lives and begin anew in order to be safe.
I have methods and strategies from my years of experience in working with victims across the country. But, one voice, or one newpaper article will not stop the bloodshed.
