Gabby Petito and the millions of women like her who have suffered at the hands of abusers are the victims we most need to center and elevate ☝️
We need to address the fact that police officers released Brian Laundrie even after bystanders, and he himself admitted to striking Petito. Better training is a must to help law enforcement recognize and realize the signs of domestic violence.
We know that most intimate partner homicides are not a one-off, but rather a long-standing system of abuse that we all must learn to better recognize and report.
What do you think? How do you think we can better respond to domestic violence and better protect women from these situations?
