Yes DV calls are dangerous, however the call said it was a verbal argument, not a physical confrontation.
I had a girlfriend once who when she got mad she would scream. Not yell, not even say words. She would scream at the top of her lungs a blood curdling
scream. You would swear someone was attacking her.
One night we had an argument. She went into another room and began yelling. Eventually a maintenance man came to the door to tell us to keep it down.
Neighbors had been calling. He threatened to call police and I begged him to do so. He really thought I was beating her, which was not the case at
all. Eventually the cops came, they heard her screaming and thought I was attacking her. When they banged on the door, I opened it and they could
still hear her screaming. When they got her out of the room, she admitted that no one was touching her. She was just mad and screaming.
Know what didn't happen? No one handcuffed me at any time, no one held a gun to my head, no SWAT team showed up, and there were no assault rifles.
It was still considered a DV call when they showed up until they found out for themselves there was no violence of any kind.
So how do you explain the automatic weapons? How do you explain cuffing the women and the man? Fact is, it does not happen this way for a simple
domestic violence call much less a call of people arguing. I know this for a fact, the example I gave was just one of many times the Police came to my
home over her screaming like a murder victim. Not once was I ever treated the way these people were treated during the investigation phase for a
possible DV call. Not once.
