In light of the recent attacks by the unlicensed cab driver tormenting residents in the Metro Boston area, people are being reminded to make sure to first look to see that the cab you are entering has their police department issued hackney license clearly posted on the rear passenger seat.  If you don’t see the license then exit the cab.

Last night I wrote about the tragic murder of Jennifer Martel. It’s devastating to now hear that she was pressured by her boyfriends family to allow her restraining order to expire, which happened on Wednesday, August 14, 2013. Unfortunately, this opened the door for her abusive boyfriend, Jared Remy, to feel he had a license to kill. His abusive past started before they were a couple. He’s attacked another female with a broken bottle, he’s kicked a woman in the stomach among other things. It pains me to further know that only nights before, the police had been called to the house for a domestic dispute. Martel’s family describes the abusive relationship stating that for some time Remy had been verbally and physically abusing Jennifer Martel. She stayed only because she feared losing her daughter because Remy’s family had more money.

As a former victim of domestic violence I know that it is easier said than done when people tell you to just walk away. My one suggestion to those that are still in an abusive situation, make sure that you tell as many people as you can about what you are going through. If you plan to leave, make sure you do it when your abuser is far enough away to allow your safe departure. Try to leave with only what you really need. Don’t let your fight for freedom be lost because you were trying to bring something that had sentimental value. Never let a restraining order lapse no matter what you think about the abusers family. The more power you give them, the more power they will take.

I’ve come to learn that you cannot take chance with your life and certainly not with the life of your children. The first time your partner hits you, leave. Don’t give them the power of a second chance. If you do, in their mind, you given them license to abuse you without questions. Choose life over death.

My heart goes out to both families and to all victims of domestic violence. Keep them all in your hearts and prayers.
