Voices from the Edge: What's behind Oregon's domestic violence murders-suicides?

program date: 
Thu, 12/10/2009

Fourteen Oregonians died last month in five murder-suicides and one attempted murder suicide. Why this sudden outbreak now of men using guns to murder their spouses, ex-spouses and themselves when domestic violence homicides in Oregon have been on the decline? In 1997, 22 domestic violence homicides took place in Multnomah County alone. In recent years, the state average has been eight murder-suicides a year. Is it the economic climate, a lack of social services, or deep-rooted cultural issues?

This week on Voices from the Edge, Jo Ann and Dave talk with Jennifer Warren, LCSW, a counselor with Portland's Men's Resource Center/Women's Counseling Center since 1998. She specializes in domestic violence intervention and recovery, and has worked extensively with men and women arrested for domestic violence. Join us in this discussion about what's behind domestic violence murder-suicides, how the problem is being addressed and what needs to be done to stop the violence.

Building new community journalism

Like their national counterparts, our local media is in a tailspin. The Oregonian is cutting more than 60 reporters from its newsroom. Television and radio news has been reduced to weather reports and traffic accidents. Developments on the internet hold promise, but right now is more opinion and little solid local reporting. How can our democratic institutions thrive if our citizens can't found out what is happening in their community.
