Cindy Beck, the wife of LAPD chief threatened by a homeless woman. It's been reported that the woman felt that she was being unfairly harassed and targeted by the police chief.
It has been reported that the woman retaliated by calling the police chief's wife on the phone, and threatened to kill her.
Information from the CBS reports states that the woman called and stated: “Cindy, I’m gonna kill you! I’m gonna come to your house and pummel you!”
The homeless woman, Veronica Roberts, was arrested and taken into custody.
You will find that when you are on the job, you will deal with idiots who will threaten you at work. When you arrest some dumb ass idiot and cuff him up, he might start yelling and hollering, saying he's gonna fuck you up, do this and do that and blah blah blah.
Whatever. You'll get used to it. Sometimes the threats won't mean jack, but in some situations you should take them a bit more seriously.
Now, whats creepy about the above story is the fact that the woman was targeting the chief's wife rather than the chief himself. Also the fact that this "homeless woman" somehow managed to get the chief's wife's phone number.
When you are an officer, you not only have to make sure that you keep yourself safe, but it's more than just yourself to consider. You have to be sure to protect and keep your family safe. It's one thing to deal with some asshole who wants to hurt you, but when they start after your family, it can really change things. Remember, sometimes we deal with some really unstable people sometimes. It might be a good idea to have an unlisted phone number and personal address for starters.
Just some things to consider...
