Barbara Sheehan says she was abused by her husband.
PAGE 2
Barbara and Raymond had their first child, a girl, two years after they got married. A few years later, they had a son. Barbara says everything changed after their second child. "[Raymond] started to get very violent," she says. "He was physically abusive. He was emotionally abusive, psychologically abusive. He used to push me, shove me. He would step on me, kick me." 

Barbara says she never pressed charges against Raymond because he was the police. "He let me know that all the time, that no one would believe me. 'I have the badge. They're going to believe the badge,'" she says. 

Even when things got so bad that Barbara had to go to the hospital, she says she protected her husband, claiming she was clumsy and fell.
