SUICIDE BY COP
Origins of the term "Suicide-by-cop"
What is SbC?
How is SbC determined?
- It is difficult to predict whether a reciprocal conciliation between officer(s) and surviving loved ones is possible or even necessary. Because suicide-by-cop purposely involves another human being to complete the act, it is a method of suicide that affects victims from both sides of the badge. This concept may be difficult for next of kin to understand, but it is nonetheless deeply realized by the officer involved.
- She [Mondello] used me to kill herself. After the shooting, Vincent pursued counseling. Ten years later, he felt compelled to write to the Mondello family. It was a difficult letter to write. Denise Mondello's mother responded to him by phone. When I heard her voice, I broke down crying. After ten years, I was still hurting inside. She was very comforting.
