Response To the Victimization of Women and Children, Volume 8, No. 4, 1985

This issue of Response includes a detailed article about a well-known domestic violence case in Connecticut that changed how police officers reacted to "domestics"—calls from arguing and endangered spouses. The U.S. District Court ruled in favor of Tracy Thurman, a woman who was battered, and her son; and found that Thurman suffered from extreme negligence at the hands of her local police department at the height of violent acts against her by her spouse.
