Domestic violence perpetrated against any police officer who is sworn to protect is something that is cruel and simply heinous beyond any normal comprehension. You were a very brave and courageous woman, Deputy Sheriff Pettit. Rest in peace and the people of Louisiana will never forget your admiration, humility and courage. My father served in the city of New York for almost forty years as a policeman with the 102nd precinct.
