I read the entire police report of Paul Penzone’s domestic violence report and serious questions arise. Apparently the wife had a documented head injury also, alleging Paul pushed her into a closed door. He denied this. How did she get the head injury? Also, there was supposed to be a neighbor across the street who may have witnessed the event. One try was made to interview the supposed witness, and no follow-up calls at her house. Poor investigation.
The prosecutor declined to file the case based upon “He said-She said” and no probability of conviction. The son was never interviewed.
I’m curious if Phoenix PD did a personnel investigation. Everyone would have been interviewed, the investigation intensive. And, if it showed he actually pushed her into the door, appropriate discipline would have been meted out, under the heading of “Conduct Unbecoming an Officer.” Police are supposed to be above such actions.
