“About a month before LAPD Det. Stephanie Lazarus allegedly beat and shot to death the wife of an ex-boyfriend, she confronted the woman at work and told her, ‘If I can’t have John, nobody can,’ according to a lawyer for the victim’s family.
“The victim’s father, Nel Rasmussen, told LAPD homicide detectives about the alleged confrontation and others in the months before the slaying, but he was rebuffed and told by the investigators “repeatedly that he was watching too much TV,” attorney John C. Taylor said today.
“Police have not responded to the family’s claims.”

Why are people such idiots? And then some of them have guns, never mind the badge and uniform. Sigh.
By the way, no man is worth doing time for, even if it seems like it at the time, a week later, you’ll wonder what all the fuss was about. Really.
