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 Katrina Cook Brownlee, who became pregnant at the age of 22, finally moved from her home in Medford, Long Island, with her two young children.
