A Cop In Oakland

The Occupy Oakland riots are happening as I type this. I have been anxiously watching them from my computer screen at work all day. 10 months ago I left the only woman I have ever loved, who is an Oakland PD officer, due to her tendency to use alcohol to cope with the stress of her job, and the ensuing violent tendencies alcohol brought out in her.
I haven't spoken to her in over half a year. I am scared shitless that something is going to happen to her. The protests are out of hand, regardless of which side of this movement you're on. I'm terrified she will be hurt or killed and I won't even know. The woman I spent 6 years of my life loving, supporting through criminal justice courses and the police academy, the woman I was sure I would spend the rest of my life with... She could be out there dying in the street and I wouldn't.even.know.

  • I'm sorry to hear you are so worried about this woman you loved. Can't you just call her to say you were thinking about her and hope she is safe? It's better than not knowing and not calling.

  • Maybe I missed something, but I have yet to hear of a cop being injured at an occupy protest. She's a cop and trained to deal with such things and has the backing of well-armed professionals.

    Your concern would be better applied to examining why you can't seem to let this woman go.

  • actually dude, three officers have been injured so far. Two OPD and one BART cop. And seriously too bro... have you been WATCHING the occupy Oakland riots??? Cuz that s*** is goin down hard, this dude has a good reason to be worried about his girl.

  • I don't think he's saying he still wants to be with her... I think he's saying that it's difficult to know that someone you had a connection with for so long is in a dangerous situation and there's nothing you can do about it... unless I'M missing something.
