    Today Boston Police arrested Boston Police Patrol Officer Dennis Morson after a domestic incident which occurred early this morning.

    About 3:12 am on Saturday, February 19, 2011 Officers responded to a radio call for a domestic violence intimate partner at a residence on Intervale Street in Roxbury. Officers spoke to a female victim, who stated her husband assaulted her and damaged property. The officer observed injury to the victim and damage to both her apartment door and front common hallway door. The victim stated that her husband then left the apartment on foot.
    The female victim declined medical treatment. The victim was advised of her 209A rights.

    BPD did it by the book that night, a very unfortunate incident. However, I do not like the fact that BPD released the name of the street that he lives on....that should of been redacted out.

    Brings to mind what an old timer told me well over twenty five years ago...

    "If you ever get in trouble on this job the department will stand behind you.....way, way behind you"

    This seems to be what's happening in this case.

    The word "domestic" sets off alarm bells and sirens with police brass, and I actually can't blame them, considering how much of a hot-button issue that is.

    Thankfully, my PD has a policy where if we go to any situation where a possible suspect is a law enforcement officer, we're mandated to not take any enforcement action before a supervisor arrives, unless it's required to maintain order, prevent an escape, or to protect ourselves or others. Basically, if the LE suspect isn't acting up, trying to leave, or posing a threat to anyone, we get to drop back and punt the arrest to a gold badge.

    Move to Milton and be in violation of the city's residency rule? He would then be terminated.
