Cop Shoots and Kills Ex-Wife With 7-Yr-Old Girl in the Car


Tamara’s life was taken on Tues, June 16th, 2015, by a police officer.

UPDATE (7-12-15): Police Were Called Over 20 Times Before Officer Executed His Wife

Why didn’t police ensure that the wife was safe, after 21 calls to report problems? Is it because the abusive husband was a fellow cop?

The reports as follows:

Local police produced 21 reports, some involving domestic violence and police Sgt. Philip Seidle, before the officer shot his ex-wife to death on an Asbury Park street. One report was filed less than a month before the killing.

Documents released to the Asbury Park Press after it requested public information related to the June 16 shooting and the Seidles’ marital discord show that police reports were produced since 2001 regarding one or both of the Seidles. The number of reports increased as the couple came closer to a final divorce decree in late May, for a total of five in 2015.

UPDATE (6-16-15): Raw Footage Captures Moment Officer Unloads Hail of Gunfire on Woman

Raw footage of the execution has just been posted to YouTube. You can see the cop walking toward the victim’s car as gunshots ring out. Just imagine how this woman and her child must have felt in the final moments of her life.

This footage is extremely disturbing, but many readers have pointed out something even darker and more twisted.

it's finally here long editable finIf you look carefully, you can see cops run up to the active shooter —  but they did not shoot him. Did they refrain from shooting him because they knew he was a fellow cop? Even though he was murdering a woman in cold blood?

As notes:

When Sgt. Seidle [the active shooter] did finally surrender he was met not with a hail of bullets, but with hugs and reassuring pats on the back. So far as I can remember, cops don’t usually go full PDA on murderers.

Another commenter wrote:

He shot her again AFTER the cops were on the scene and they did nothing to stop him. She might have been saved but cops were more concerned with talking him out of killing himself than using necessary force to stop him from sending a second barrage of bullets into his ex-wife.

ASBURY PARK — We have received breaking reports that police officer in Asbury Park, NJ opened fire on a woman with her 7-yr-old daughter in the car.

The little girl was in the front seat of the car watching and screaming as Sgt. Philip Seidle aimed the gun at the woman, and shot her to death, according to reports.

Several witnesses were terrified when they observed the slaying.

Sgt. Seidle has been charged with murder, unlawful possession of a weapon and endangering the welfare of a child.

The woman, Tamara, used to be married to Sgt Seidle, reports say.

She was 51-years old.

Apparently Sgt. Seidle had been chasing her through the streets.

A prosecutor described the situation as follows:

“As Tamara Seidle was trying to flee, her vehicle crashed into a parked car on Sewall Avenue. Philip Seidle’s car then crashed into hers, and he got out of the car, pulled out his handgun, and approached her car, immediately firing into the driver’s side several times.”

It is a tragic and painful reminder that domestic abuse among police families nearly double that of normal families.

The national average for abuse of wives is 1 in 4 woman, but if they are with a cop that average becomes 1 in 2 women.

We have seen case after case verifying this, including, tragically, cases of fatalities.

In one horrifying case, a cop shot his ex-girlfriend for breaking up with him, then also shot her pet dog to death, and burned her house down while her corpse was inside, according to reports.

If you know someone who is dating an abusive cop, please reach out to them and encourage them to contact professionals.

As The Free Thought Project notes:

Law Enforcement officers beat their significant other at nearly double the national average. Several studies, according to Diane Wetendorf, author of Police Domestic Violence: Handbook for Victims, indicate that women suffer domestic abuse in at least 40 percent of police officer families. For American women overall, the figure is 25 percent, according to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention.

According to The Advocates for Human Rights Organization, studies indicate that police families are 2-4 times more likely than the general population to experience domestic violence, making the potential for disparities in protective success particularly troubling.

Our hearts go out to the little girl who was traumatized watching her mother shot to death as well as the family’s left behind by the victim.
