I read something in the Dallas Morning News today that had me thinking. A Corporal Mark Force (interesting last name, no?) was arrested on Wednesday while he was off duty. His possible crime? Domestic abuse. The details are not publicly available, but jail records indicate the 7-year veteran of the Fort Worth Police Department was choking his partner.
