New York Times
A man with a badge almost killed her. So she got her badge.
Newyork — When her boyfriend hit her face, she called the police. She called again when he hit her head in the chair. When police arrived and her boyfriend, who was a prison guard on Rikers Island, flashed his badge, despite her apparent injuries (cuts on the lips, swelling of the eyes), they turned around. I changed it and left. He beat her further, and 22-year-old Katrina Cook Brownlee became pregnant and finally moved from her home in Medford, Long Island, with her two young children.
