On this week’s program, the painful aftermath of a mass shooting, in Canonsburg, Pennsylvania, Washington County – that resulted in the murder of Canonsburg Police Officer Scott Bashioum, the wounding of fellow officer Jimmy Saieva, and the death of Dalia Sabae – a pregnant woman, killed by her husband – Michael Cwiklinski – who eventually turned the gun on himself.

The incident began, when police officers responded to a domestic violence call – one of the most dangerous situations for law enforcement personnel.

Domestic violence, which knows no racial, economic, or regional limits, is a serious problem in this country and Southwestern Pennsylvania.

What’s being done, to help its victims, prevent further violence, and provide protection – to stop future injuries and deaths?

Our guests include Kristin Clingerman, J.D. – Assistant District in Washington County – who prosecutes domestic violence cases, Allison Weakland – from Domestic Violence Services of Southwestern Pennsylvania – which services clients in Washington, Fayette, and Greene counties — who is a counselor and advocate for domestic violence victims, and Shirl Regan – President and CEO of the Women’s Center & Shelter of Greater Pittsburgh.
