The scary thing is....This man got married again....it takes a lot of belly for another woman to marry him after vwhat he did
She call police 100 times they don’t do anything 😖
In those days women were still fighting for equal rights...so the attitude was its your husband submit... Watching the movie you would understand.... Reason the police was telling her its your husband go talk to him not much we can do blah blah...thank God she survived
Stay? It's entrapment. Not that hard to figure out. Seriously 🤦🏻♀️
Note to girls wondering what to look for in a prospective boyfriend: Watch and observe how well he treats his Mom, Dad, Siblings, etc....a good man with love and respect raised right would never dream of hurting or hitting a lady. Also, if he's an animal lover that's a good sign too.
For years i just wanted to hug you. God bless you❤
@Billy Woodruff who are you?
When man hits you once, he will hit you again and again. Dump him or get help. If police does not react and he still is at large, serve him your own justice or some nice mushrooms for dinner. And feel no mercy, just do it.
I agree wholeheartedly... sometimes justice has to be taken out by ones own hands... sometimes it has to be done.
Girl, you fucking said it. When a motherfucker ain't shit, treat you like you were less than an animal, And the justice system doesn't do shit... You give him a taste of his own medicine.
In 2001, when I was 15 the guy I was dating grabbed me and slammed my body against these huge concert speakers, that stood in the hallway of their music studio. (Yep, he was 21 at the time) I literally asked him about the girl, I had seen him come out of the store with, only half our before. I was not one to cause a scene and being to young I was also naive, but that is all I asked. By this time we were only relegated meeting in secret because I was not even allowed to date, and looking back, because he was older. For one simple question a body slam is what my 15 year old 100lbs frame got. I did not have my father around but when I remember his presence in my life, he never hit me, and the only time my brothers ever hit me was if I provoked it and I only did it to them. So instinctively when he slammed me, I knew to defend myself. I must have been in shock because I did not feel any pain, but I came back with a mean right hand slap with a force so hard that that man's eyes opened wide and he began apologizing in every language he could come up with. I left from there and never spoke to him again. I had to pass there every day because it was on the same block on which I lived, and he would wait there everyday and try to talk to me. I walked past him like he was a dead person. I did not acknowledge his presence at all. He did this for over a year until he got the message. In my adult life I understand I should not have been with an older man because he has needs that my innocent self could not give him. I should have told my aunt about him doing what he did to me because I really hurt after the shock wore off, but at that time, I was scared because I had a strict aunt and I thought I'd gotten in trouble. Looking back, my aunt would have defended me with everything and he would have been in jail for that one body slam. To this day, my mentality is, "if he hits WITHOUT PROVOCATION" I will fight back with all my might! He will never put his hands on me and I will never talk to him again. I have never had to worry about that issue since them because though things did not work, I was blessed to have better boyfriends, who would never put their hands on me. 3 out of 4 were good and though the other one did abuse me emotionally and financially, one thing I give that one credit for was he never raised his voice or call me out my name. It was only after we broke up did I even learn about other forms of abuse. Also, 2 years after we broke up, he asked me out and he gave me an apology. I had forgiven him long before that and could do nothing more than forgive him. He really made good of himself and for that I am very glad. I am also glad I do not know abuse like others. It is such a painful thing especially when the children are involved.
Why does police officers cover and ignore the wives who beg repeatedly for help . ALL OFFICERS, THEIR BOSSES, DISPATCHER'S ANYONE who knew this was going on should of been charged with allowing this and not doing anything to protect this woman. SHAME ON ALL OF THEM !!!!!
@Nature Owl ..test but this case was different Tracy did walk away from the abuse and the husband kept pursuing her.....notice in yhe movie the police and her hisbsnd chatting friendly st the cafe where he works.....also the police keep ignoring the treat and telling her its your husband what do you want us to do go talk to him......it was s woman submit to your husband mentality....
I agree.. But this incident change a lot of domestic violent laws in America and also internationally..
Yes they Got away too easy they should have been suspended without pay and a few fired...but women were still struggling for equal rights in those days so it was like ...submit to the man he is your husband no matter how bad it is...
I think the reason why cops have a def hear to it is because they are sick of having to go back to the same couple who are fighting . If a woman keeps going back or a man then in the eyes of the cop they feel they are wasting there time if the victim gos right back to the abuser over and over until either the abuser kills the victim or the victim leaves with out a trace .
This Latina right here from NY would NEVER EVER let some asshole put his hands on me. My first Love slapped me once n b4 I knew it he had a knife thru his hand, then I had him deported to his country, hes still there till this day. I DON'T PLAY THAT SHIT!
High five, girl!
Ladies . Read this and keep it in mind. If he hits you one time,defend yourself with everything and immediately call the police! Press charges and never look back.
Dont try to take a mans kid bitch
@Shannon Wooters yep that's what abusers do..... Its not about the child its all about the person you want to continue to abuse...
@Brian Andrews you need to watch the movie again cause your missing a lot. The resin why she ran away was because of the abuse...
You are sick in your mind and an abuser yourself....did you watch the movie...this guy has serious abusive issues and addiction and eventually would have start abusing that child later on....she had to protect herself and her child..
yous a low life just like him , u don’t deserve love from anybody lame ass hoe .
Brian The fact that you think that men love their kids more than their women is jst laughable. 90% of men out there don't love their kids. They use them to get their women. Go to a divorce court someday. Those men are disgusting. They dont give a fuck about their kids. You re one of them. Men who love their kids do everything to protect their kids. They don't kill the mothers of their kids.
I went through 7 years of ads beatings from my sons father! The one time I finally got the nerve to hit back, the police. arrested me for simple assault!! I spent 72 hrs in jail in GA. I never been arrested before in my life! Or since! Monday morning the judge had me sign a pink paper and said he can't understand why I was arrested! He said probably because he got to a phone first! After answering his questions, he said its problem be I have a NY accent! This coward broke my eye sockets, rotarter cuff, my right arm only goes half way up! I've had split lips, my throat is scared from spinal fusion from having my hair jerked back, pulling my hair for years! I moved back to NY with the help from Camden house, bus tickets, long trip! It was worth it! My sons 21now in the Army, Colorado, I'm with an angel, a retired pipe fitter, steam fitter, GF... Nice home, 14 years never laid a finger on me or my kids ever! God Bless You Tracy and all the amazing women that got away! Only a coward hits a women! Period! A real man loves and spoils us, lol... God bless you all! 🙏
Im so happy to read your story, so glad you got away. So many people stay out of fear of the un known. I know i can relate to that! Xxx
I'm a make sure your ass fed,and sleep,and it's A Wrap,cause I've been a Victim but not no more, let a MFer hit me today,all have to say I a better not go out o sleep,dead ass!!!
Lol.... Go on bout your bussiness lol boy! 👦 You ain't about nothing! Remeber this you touching...... If a straight up punk hits you once, Don't believe his lies, he will hit you again, again and again! Don't be a fool like me! I put up with it for 7 long, years! There are churches and shelters, like the Camden house! They saved my life! They send a sheriff to escort you, and your children safely there! They will help you! I will be honest, men stick together! The police in CT treated me horribly! Thank God for a case worker in Longstanding GA. We went there supposedly to get away from the casinos in CT. Fresh start! Guess what? He was spending all his time and tips at the local truck stops and the draw poker machines in the corner convent stores! I ran out of places to run! My son was only 4 at the time, I was cleaning rooms 2 dollars a room, We never had food, evicted from one run down motel to another! One particular beating he broke my rotator cuff, the pain was excruciating! I had to care for our son and clean 26 rooms a day! He was finally arrested after the 4th time and given 3vmonths in jail! I went to Camden house and got away while he was in jail. Nearly 2 days on a grey hound bus with a 3 year old. It was hard but nothing is impossible! Sure it's embarrassing to ask for help! I grew up hard, ruff in NY my family turned their back on me! My mom and 2 grown half sisters, self centered, I am 10 years older then one and 20 ur older then the other! Lol... So we don't really know one another! Thank god for good friends and some good hearted strangers, Remeber this, it's very Important.... Do Not let him know your planning to leave! Never Ever! !! He needs his scape goat and his meal ticket! Forget about material things, furniture, etc. You can always get things again! Just go! Make sure you trust the person who says they will help you! Don't tell his family! I found out that some blood is thicker then H20......Do Not leave your child with him, people not his family as well, unless you know it's really cool. Do not sign any papers! Snakes and Cowards come in all colors and shapes! Run and never look back! God. Bless You! Hope I helped some one, somewhere! Peace ✌💜💕
Lol.... Patrica, I hear you girl friend! The punk I was with was a mommy's boy punk! The Marines through him out for gambling! His family from Norwich CT, casino bums! He knew my dad dead, no brothers, or family to help me out! Straight up coward! My husband of 14 years, steam fitter retired, sweetie, gentle giant he's 6"4 280 lbs muscle 💪 This is for you little girls out there, and you cowardly punks that like beating on defenseless women 5ft. I'd rather be an old man sweetheart then a young man's Fool! 💔
I hope she sued the fk out of the police department. Because of failure of the law Tracy had to suffer. And I'm sure that fker is out prison by now! 🙄
User Friendly, when you make posts about raping your own mother you have no right ASSuming that I beat women. I don't think women should be beaten. Just this one deserved it because of her greed.You should learn how tor read before calling me stupid.
@Kevin Richards Well guess what? She was awarded 2.3 million. For the police not doing their jobs or taking the situation seriously. You keep talking about her getting a job, did you not see what he did to her? How did she deserve it? At all? Someone needs to look into your background, just by your stupid comments, I wouldn't be surprised if you've abused some women.
Why do people call others dumb when they cannot spell?
nia johnsonThey should only be responsible for her injuries, lawyer fees and missed work. No more. If she tries to get more than what she is entitled to then she had it coming to her.
@Kevin Richards Injuries affect your ability to work, especially when your older you heal slower, and when bones are being broken and your being stabbed to the point of paralysis, it takes a long time to recover. This happened as a direct result of police negligence. she suffered and although she won that amount of money she probably needed countless surgeries and physical therapy that cost fortunes. The money she won pays for her medical bills, physical therapy, mental therapy, and because she likely wasn't able to work for months after her assault, whatever living expenses she has. The money also pays for her lawyer fees and court fees and her body guard. Her injuries could have been prevented, if the officers did their job so they should be held financially accountable.
Lost my Aunt to Domestic Violence...5/14/61-7/8/93.. Long Live My Auntie😔😞
I'm so sorry for your loss sweet soul. please accept my condolences. from Elle in England xx
Chop his dick off. Off with his dick!!!! Men who rape women should have their dicks chopped off after proven guilty. Problem solved!!!!
Arthur Everett That's brutal. They need to be incarcerated for the rest of their lives.
Chop it off with his dick?!
Now and days us woman are crazy because we grab a bat.
Fancy Fanofutube word!
They made this a movie right ? If it's the one I'm thinking of it was crazy. She was beat in front of cops and the fkrs did nothing smh
Yep the police were their before he attack her...yet he was able to stab her 13 times...
A cry for help: the tracey thurm an story. Yeah...cop sat there on his ass until the witnesses started screaming him & even then, he held down the wrong man while Buck was still attacking her.
Don't listen to their words, only their actions - that is the true person 🤔
Neden Türkçe seslendirme yokki
He attempted premeditated murder and should fry in the electric chair at least life in prison any judge that would let this monster out of prison is making it possible for this monster to repeat more crimes against people how injust was done to this woman these days the monster would have been shot to death by police, what a useless police system that was
Police useless Being harassed by this man since last September Just got home from hospital got fractured cheekbone from being punched by a man Police did nothing y because I fought back
Claire Williams 😒
I feared God not man , If you fear of someone or something it will become a reality, do not let your heart be trouble trust in God trust also in me.
Daria and user friendly I believe you're missing her point. She's basically saying bc Tracy feared this man it became her reality. God was with her bc it is the reason she is alive to tell her story and advocate for domestic violence. I'm happy the woman is ok but I get what Elle is saying trust God only trust him to send your love n don't fall for the first train smoking bc it could be a special delivery from satan himself.
God is not a bodyguard on earth to protect her. Was she supposed to stand there and pray & wait for him to create some magical shield? Come on. There's a time for fairytales and there's a time to focus on real life.
JesusIsTheOnlyWay Oh, ur right she had no reason to fear this man. Knock it off. That comment helps nobody. God allows free will. Which means psychos can and do kill their partners. U can't pray it away. God also allowed man to create LAWS AND GUNS to defend themselves. I bet if u were almost killed everyday for 5 yrs , you'd be like, I'm so happy, not scared, God will strike him down. Oh wait, you wouldn't fear him at all, and he would just poof! Go away! Wow if thousands of women only knew it was only that easy!!! Omg I'm so upset at the ignorance and lack of compassion in ur comment. ..ugh...
By staying they are enabling a sick person, therefore some of the responsibility lies squarely on them.
@James Diamond Arsehole!
@James Diamond Arsehole
She had left him. She had restraining order on him. He didn’t leave her alone. Leaving them is the most volatile time, when will you blame the man????
@Tila Bryant please pardon my ignorance
@April Chow-chee please excuse my lack of sensibility
They stay in abusive relationships cause they are stupid my first husband threatened me and hit me and that was his ass I beat his ass if you’re in an unhealthy relationship leave ain’t that much fear in the world of nobody if you stay in it then you must enjoy it
@Angie Feaster God bless you I've been there too. Some people just think it's so easy to walk away but in real life that can get you hurt more then staying. Glad you eventually got out. I did too after many yrs of abuse. Take care and bless you. " Hugs" 🤗🤗💕💕
First of all don't ever come out ya mouth about someone being stupid for staying in an abusive relationship. Are u in their shoes? Nah I don't think so. She tried to leave several times and look what happened. I left and almost died. Who left for u to judge? Wasn't you I remembers name in the bible that walked on water almighty. Your situation may have been blessed more than ours. We did leave and still laid on our death beds but God blessed us enough to get our out of it to me that's not stupidity to me that's faith, love, and miracles and blessings baby. You need some he's ur sweet heart and stop judging cause your situation is not like everyone else's. That comment definitely rubbed me the wrong way especially if u had a touch of an abuse u should be a little more sympathetic instead of judgemental. Have a good day
I guess you know it all. So what about the ones that do leave and he hunts them down and kills them anyway????
You seem well educated..... great point
I would carry a gun and shoot a man that did this to me
Charles buck one ofthe nation's most notorious wife beaters in history ...he stabbed her 13 times in front of their 2:yr old baby he paralyzed her beat the crabp out of her and yes he was wearing a wife beater time of the incident in 83 .
@Tila Bryant The attack left her partially paralyzed. She relies on a walker .
Pamela Breska actually no she wasn’t
@Tila Bryant Actually yes she was
Kill the bastard
Fancy Fanofutube she’s not paralyzed
Stomping on his child's mothers face so sad and dumb😧
I remember this.....I was praying for her to leave town. I was hoping she would be ok.
I remember Jo from the facts of life did this lifetime movie based on her story it was so sad ...
Look at all the abusive men commenting on here bashing the victim.
What a COCKSUCKER HE IS. I WOULD HAVE ABSOLUTELY SHOT THAT MOTHER FUCKER.
It wasnt u idiot its a true story u freak
@Jody Doherty bullshit !!!!! It is written in hebrew
Deena Gotti Look at the writing! Definitely an Islamic state where I bet Sharia Law is practiced! 🤬 Sharia Law and all the countries that enforce it...
@Deena Gotti Somewhere a women would never want to be!
She was a idiot should of left him not wait till he tried to kill her fuck the fear leave the country if u have to!!
What movie did you watch she did left him
She did leave omg why do u ppl keep saying that watch the damn movie all the way through. That's why he did what he did cause she left. Duh
Your an idiot !
Leave with what mate?? They control your money, your transport, your communication, they have to know your whereabouts 24 hours a day, they intercept your mail, they have to know all your passwords and monitor your social media activity ( if they allow you to be on social media), They cut you off from family and friends. What is it that you’re not understanding about controlling men. They don’t just let you leave.
DO YOUR RESEARCH BEFORE YOU JUDGE. SOME OF THESE WOMEN LEAVE AND AREN'T SAFE OF SIMPLY HAVE NO WAY OF LEAVING
I hope he rots in jail coward!!
@TamiOkoroDedeh men like that don't change their ways unless they get deliverance..... I paid attention to what the new wife said.... She say their is times he would go into mood swings and then snap out of it....those demons can snap again unless he confront them.....being nice and pretending the incident never happened won't help....
Sorry but unfortunately he remarried after his release from prison
He was released early. He's since remarried, and no longer goes by 'Buck', but has changed his ways, and neighbours confirm he's a different man.
He is already out
Any man that beats on a women is a coward
Domestic violence is not just being beaten, it is mental abuse it's financal, its all about power and the need for control at all cost.
@Alex Cintas ..I think Paula ment they control your finance as well
Lol financial abuse? In your book what isn't abuse???
the question I have is, who chose him? who chose to date or marry a psycho like this guy? I'll bet you if a guy that was nice and did all the right things. she wouldn't have given that guy the time of day. it's time women start to understand that who you choose to marry or live with has consequences.
Sometimes an abuser may show signs early in the relationship sometimes most of the hide it because they need to woo and trap you so they come off as nice....
Do u really think when these men r met they met men with an automatic punch in the face? Seriously. No. I love how ppl who have never been in this situation can be so cold hearted towards the victim and actually find cause for the other person to beat the victim. They don't met u and beat u they charm their way into that. Usually they are sociopaths or psychopaths. Duh research if u gonna judge which btw isn't really ur place to do in the first place
They don’t wear a badge mister
@Jody Doherty oké, sorry
Me parece imposible..
I got tried of his abuse and snapped on my ex-husband and I stabbed him in the chest
@Tom Thumb if she did that she probleby would have been killed by him
@Siobhan Fogarty no but he did call the cops on me ...I told the cop I was. Deffending myself....
Are you in jail?
These bastards thrive on your fear.
im sorry what happen to her . but dam how can she not have prepared her self. she knew he was bat shit crazy. women wake up . if your man is unstable. know it's only a matter of time till he tries to kill you. don't depend on the police. you handle it.
@Ron Norman finnaly someone with brains
Bel Herdez i know this happened years ago but woman half to understand that it's a mad gone world. and if a man beats you when you leave he is not done. he is now in kill mode .
Ron Norman once you find out they're hidden, if they're covert, its too late, and most laws wont protect the victims unless you are already attacked physically, enough to show the police and even then, you still have no protection from them, they can murder you and then someone goes "o. My bad", you could find him in your house and shoot him and somehow still have to get dragged as "the bad guy" to jail
Ron Norman She left him. I believe her own mother told him where she was. Women need guns.
Is this necessary?
The moment you defend yourself against your abuser... YOU GO TO JAIL... it’s time to stop the ITS A MAN’S WORLD SYNDROME!!!
unapologeticwhiteman Winner “Unlike Women” are you fkm??? I have a zero tolerance as well for violent men! stop categorizing ALL WOMEN... dude, I know men who stay with abusive women. All women don’t stay... some fight back some walk away some stay but Men are doing the same thing!
unapologeticwhiteman Winner excuse me Mr Superior WhiteMan!!!! First off it’s obvious to me you were EXTREMELY DAMAGED by the woman who allegedly falsely accused you of DV... but don’t take that out on ALL WOMEN... I see you have baggage because of this and I’m sorry that happened to you and I can tell by your verbal tone that you are still a very angry man, but don’t let your situation cloud your judgement about women who really fall prey to men WHO HIDE THEIR DEMONS WELL and later show there true colors ...also ALL BAD BOYS AREN’T VIOLENT TOWARDS WOMAN... stop letting your personal relationships with women effect your judgement ... you sound extremely bitter!
unapologeticwhiteman Winner “News flash” for you. All men think they’re superior to women. If it’s not physical abuse, it’s emotional , psychological, stalking , control. As long as men have the physical advantage, women are in danger. You keep referencing the”bad boy”. What about the doctors, teachers, politicians, executives, police pigs, the old perverted bosses who drool down your neck, the list goes on and on. Sorry, don’t believe your💩story🤥. My question is, why are you even watching this video? To criticize the victim? Reliving a past crime, perhaps? But as history goes, you’re a man, and all that is important is your opinion. Apparently you don’t understand the psychology of fear and abuse. She left him. He found her. The pig watched him trying to kill her, he probably enjoyed it. But yeah, that’s her fault. Watch the news. You savages are still killing women on a daily basis. Oh, btw, love how you compare an abuse victim to a stolen car. This illustrates how men see women as objects. Nice comparison, incel. But of course, men are using the victim card, lol, the last card in the deck.
@M Z unlike you I was around in 1983. And it was not nearly as you think it was. True enough we didn't have the amount of domestic laws in place that we have now, but news flash. With people like this guy. No amount of domestic laws would have prevented him from being what he was. Some men are just fucked up. I have seen men that are just too stupid to allowed to live out in the real world. And I have seen on many occasions women keep on and on being aggressive with a man until he snaps. I don't believe for one minute that men as a whole at any point in history just randomly beat their wives. All that happened with these domestic laws we have is give women the ability to ruin a man with a false charge of domestic violence. In every case of domestic violence that I have had anything to do with, the woman was the aggressor. I who have never lifted a hand at a woman had a girl years ago threaten me with a false domestic violence. I couldn't get rid of her fast enough. Thank God I did get rid of her before she tried it. But the truth is, all she would've had to do is go into the bathroom. Slap herself a couple of times. Call the police, say I did it. And I would get a domestic violence charge that I was not guilty of. But see unlike a woman, once I saw the red flags I got rid of her. I have a zero tolerance policy as it pertains to women. A woman shows me any kind of instability. She got to go.
@M Z bullshit. They do show who they are. Now if you refuse to see the red flags, that's on you. If I go to Detroit Michigan and park my car with the keys in it, and it gets stolen. The thief that stole it is wrong, but so am I for leaving my keys in the car. Somehow pointing out holes in people's logic especially women when it comes to who they choose as a mate became victim blaming. Any person as violent as this guy was, absolutely showed his true colors. I'll bet you anything she probably had family members and friends try to talk to her about this guy. I have seen it happen too many times. And the woman in the relationship refuse to listen to to her family and friends. Only to come back a few months later acting the victim. Now I think everyone should keep their hands to themselves. And I concede that there are a minority of men that come home and... You put mayo on my sandwich... And just start swinging. And those guys should be locked up forever. But it is past time that women start to take responsibility for their part in these abusive relationships. Like I have stated before. If you want the alpha bad boy... You get what comes with the alpha bad boy. Don't come crying to me when he does what everyone with a functioning brain cell knows he will do.
🙍🏿♀️I remember watching her movie on lifetime, and boy was I hollering at the tv and crying every single time! another survivor story is burning bed, omg it upsets me, and it's crazy how family and friends can just watch and not say nothing, as you get stomped and punched away, black and blue and look at you like you're wrong for even asking for help, or trying to get away!💔
@Sonja Mitrovic Hi,🙋🏿♀️ Sure 1989 A Cry For Help- The Tracey Thurman Story, Nancy McKeon plays her from.. the tv show Facts Of Life. And 1984 The Burning Bed Farrah Fawcett, both of these movies are very heartbreaking, and will make you wanna go thru the screen.😢😢💔
You Make Me Laugh Please,can you tell me name of that movie? I'd like to watch it.
The oceans are very big 😉
I HOPE SOMEBODY CUT HE S ARMS HE IS A FUCKING ASSHOLE
Asshole? He's a maniac
She should have killed him first . You must protect yourself.
Not everyone kills people 😂
THIS IS WHERE ALL WOMEN ARE DIFFERENT. SEE ME, ON THE OTHER HAND, I WOULD OF BEEN IN PRISON AFTER THAT FIRST HIT AND HIS ASS WOULD BE THE ONE LAYING ON THAT OPERATING TABLE FROM ME F##KING HIM UP!!! FO' SHO WITHOUT A DOUBT.
@Julie Anderson TWO THUMBS UP FOR YOU GIRL😀😀
@Ĺisa Ellis NO, THANK YOU.
Yeeeees! Thank you!
@Julie Anderson 😀😀😀😀
@Lovie Brown of course I have a big vinyl sticker on the rear window of my Durango that says "shall not be infringed " lol.
I remember watching this movie.
How very sad that the police department in Jackson county Oregon has refused to uphold stalking and has on several occasions allowed a perpetrator of dv to walk free...and here we are in 2019...
The police, judges and legal aide are still in the dark ages about domestic violence, stalking and assault against women... we really haven't come that far, unfortunately :-/
ginmar Police is a psychopath profession.
40% of cops will admit to domestic violence themselves. "Buck" Thurman was friends and hung out with lots of cops.
The Lifetime movie scene was hideous the cops failed on so many levels
Dr Phil’s wife also has an app you can download onto your phone for help. It doesn’t look like a help app look into it!
I hope his sorry _-_-_-got the death penalty
@y2daisy that's sad to hear. Failed justice! Im a victim of domestic violence and the system failed me but this is on a way higher level they should of put his ass away for good:( women arent safe or protected :/
y2daisy are you kidding me!!!!! He should be ROTTING in prison where he belongs. I don’t believe a person with that mindset is able to be reabilitated. Nope. No way.
In the movie based on this story Called "A Cry for help" he only received 12 years and five years probation
Charles "Buck" Thurman was released from jail in 1991
this was terrible
I had two ex stalk me took the law by my own Hands went up to him grabbed his shirt and threatened if he comes near me I will cut his dick off lol never saw him again
Sadly, in another scenario,after doing something like that to the abuser, the woman is the one who might not ever be seen again. Every case is as different as it is similar, and unless you walk in someone else's shoes, you have no idea how you would handle what they are going through. I am lucky I survived,25 years ago,but still wish almost every day that he was put in prison for what he did to me. I still wonder why I stayed, even though I have had therapy and know the deep rooted answers, so I don't need other women thinking it would be so easy to get away. For some survivors,even when it is all over, it never really is. Nobody knows how they would really handle what another person is faced with.
Even to this day, the police won’t really do much . I put my stalker in jail back 2011 . He only got 9 months. This past summer he found me n started stalking me AGAIN. The police tell me, cnt do much until he physically hurts you?!?!? 😢😔
Get a gun
Wow!! So sad!!
Exactly. The police don't do anything until there's a body.
Disgraceful. .the law needs to change.
How could he be allowed out!
This happened 35 years ago. I was 11 yrs old. I watched it & it made me think...
Same here. I was just a couple of years older than you when I saw it. I think the movie made quite an impact on the people who watched it. They did a fine job of portraying Tracy's fear, helplessness and sheer horror! I don't think I'd ever be able to get that scene out of my head!
A woman in waterbury connecticut was killed by her abuser after begging for help at the police station. Same day as the travis the chimp incident so it got swept under the rug.
God bless her soul and may his soul burn in hell hope the devil makes her ex. His bitch
She was awarded 2.3 million when she sued the police department.. that 2.3 even back then in those days it was a slap on the face.. she was ignored by the police, almost killed by her husband, then the courts screw her as well ...
Well then get the hell out No the question is “Why do you stay” If you’re on a date and he hits you. It’s your fault after that, you get married 🤷🏼♀️
Is that really how you think it happens??
I think they act like normal people until they really weasel into the woman's life...?
Yeah...coz so many abusers hit on the first date..pffft. By the time the first signs of abuse show, you're manipulated by them showing their good side. By the time that first punch comes, you're in love and they're your world. I had been with my man a while before the first attack came. Yes I stayed but he was all I really knew by then..had been with him for so long. Over the years I ended up losing friends because they got sick of seeing me black and blue..I felt alone. I copped a gash under my eye that needed stitches, broken ribs, a bruised spine, cigarette burns, countless black eyes etc. If you've never been there, don't insult those who have
M Goodness, perfectly said. 👏🏼👏🏼
I don't know you, Ms. Smith, but I pity your ignorance and hatred for other women who cannot get away or were not strong enough to keep out of an abusive relationship in the first place. Be glad you were able to get out so easily. Every case is different. You should be standing WITH your fellow abused women, not against us! I ought not to play dime store psychologist, but you sure seem to have a lot of misplaced anger and hate, not to mention a bit of old fashioned bitch in you! Good luck in your life and be glad you still have one,and one more thing: maybe you might think about HELPING battered women, instead of mentally battering them! Smdh
Suspect for Domestic Abuses,Manslaughter,was Commited by 9/11/ISIS Fugitive Swine pig (Witch Hunts) Hannibal Lector William Buckley jr. alias(Patricia Cox,Carol Middleton,Betsy Davos).
I'm a domestic violence survivor I got out when he was put in jail
Heather Hahn smart of u
Thank Julie Anderson I have an amazing man now we have been together now for 4 amazing years I love my man so much he is protective a great dad and everything else I was for in a man I'm so blessed to have him in my life
@Heather Hahn I'm happy for you and wish you the best.
I'm not worried about that because now he's in prison for attempting murder and rape on me I have the scars to prove it so I am not worried when he has a life sentence for what he did
Be prepared for when he gets out. Best to you!
She is Lucky to be alive. How Tracey handled herself is a testament to the amazing person she is. Glad they sued the police. Smart move
I thought that picture of this poor young lady was a picture of Bethany Frankel from Skinny Girl stuff n real house wife’s of new York
She was a controlling narcissist. She drove her man nuts. She whined about everything. No matter how well it was done, or with what good intentions were in play it was never fuckin good enough. When he would finally get to the point where he could relax, and just decompress, this bitch would blind side him with something ridiculous. He wanted to love her so bad. But she is just a manipulative, compulsive liar.
@Steve Harrell I can visualize you by your words. Sad Sac comes to mind...unsuccessful with women, in life...pitiful. Your words draw a picture of you.
Steve Harrell you know nothing about it so just keep your opinions to yourself unless you were in a abusive relationship
If he is such a great guy, how could he destroy his son's world like that? Look kid, I just killed your mother, said the poor victim of hen pecking. Yeah right😂😂
@Laura Loochie Unless he went back to jail or prison for other offenses he is. He got out in 1991 for what he did to Tracey.
I'm thankful this woman expert makes a point of saying abusers can be he or she. Anyway, I heard Tracy's son didn't turn out so well.
Correction: Tracey's son has drug issues and went to prison for awhile but not for violence. If its true he was made to watch his mother nearly die then I'm not surprised he's into drugs.
@Stefan Pigford This might be wrong, but I heard he went to jail for some violent offense.
What happened to her son?
Yes, I've seen women be just as abusive, as men. No one deserves it. I pray you are wrong about Tracey's son. But I wouldn't be surprised if it's true. Many people who see their parent(s) abuse others, turn out to be abusive themselves. But not all...
I remember watching this with my mother when I was a kid.
I am a survivor I was beat for years ..I got away alive thank god
Im proud of you♡ it takes alot to leave..I unfortunately know. Its a dark place to be. And to be put there by someone you love is heartbreaking. I learned that no matter how much u love someone..u have to love yourself more. God bless your journey♡
So Glad You Did, Sweetie. All the Very Best .. Biggest Hugs from Sunny Far North Queensland Australia 🇦🇨💮💚💮💚💮💚💮💚💮💚💮
I the youngest child of 5 boys born in 5 and a half years can tell you this.We as children had no choice, suffering physical, mental, and sexual abuse.The fear instilled on the victims are ever lasting and affect there lives forever. At 55 years old now and our abuser at 78 years old a part of that fear still to this day looms over my brothers to the point of hurting each other at her request. She now uses lies because it's all her abilities will allow her to inflict harm on any that apose her. Old and feeble our abuser is and yet the fear still remains driving my brothers and I further apart, now more than ever. It brakes my Hart to no something that started as a slap for not finishing your green beans could evolve into complete denial and separation. I love my bothers and There families but This center figure has kept us apart for decades and our kids suffer from not knowing there kind. I must tell you I am currently taking care of our victimizer because it's my Christian duty. But I miss my brothers even though there denials along with my victimizer putting the blame on me only because I'm within reach has made my life a living hell.
Put her in a home as she deserves
Call the police today
Girls, I know bad boys can be intriguing but for God's sake don't attempt to form a relationship with one.
Never understood the intrigue. But men do this on purpose to get women and women do go for it, that's just facts, angry feminist person who won't let anyone voice an opinion unless it is her royal opinion.
@Carolanne lady ~ I think this "bad boy" adjective is used too much as an excuse to be a terrible man. But also as a way to make light of a situation such as this movie... When there's nothing funny about it. When I hear the term "bad boy" the last thing that crosses my mind is a criminal like Buck...
@Deborah Kerns yep. And the original comment here is blaming women for being abused, when abusers are very good at hiding who they really are. If they were all "bad boys", they could be avoided. Smfh. This original commenter has some serious issues with women. Yuck. 😂😂
@Cindi Torres feminazi? Are yall really still saying that? 😂😂
@Thou Swell 😂😂 you really dont see the issue with what you said, do you? YOU are the EXACT type of man women should avoid--and im guessing they do.
Sound is terrible, can't hear what's being said.
She needs a pistol, and learn how to hit what she aims at.
@Carolanne lady I agree Carol , but if he has a history with the police of doing things like this it might be self defense. He might get out and come after her again, you never know. I think women need to be armed. At least most, the more level headed ones. I feel for this girl.
If she killed him BEFORE this happened, shed be charged with murder. Women who kill abusive partners tend to receive harsher punishment than their abusers would get for killing them.
Here’s to Jessica Hicking.... she throws a blanket comment about “cops” and men in general and when someone responds with a valid comment she sends an idiot response. Then refuses and block further replies...sorry for true victims of domestic violence she is a hate baiter and we “cops and men” truest know the victims and enforce fully
As I said, try living behind their pig pen. Cops and men know the true victims, because they create them. Not to worry, AI will soon be replacing the police force. Unarmed ppl won’t have to fear being shot in the back. Women need guns.
@M Z LOOser!!
So funny. Cops are the biggest pos alive. Try living behind a precinct. You’ll see what really goes on.
I'm sorry for what happened to her but this is the case that changed the way domestic violence cases are handled. She almost died!!! Praise God she didn't and that she had the strength to fight. Thank you Tracey. You've saved so many others
Feel so bad for wat happend to her. But outta every darkness there is a light. And hers made a light for so many others. God bless an keep her. That pos will get his.
It’s been over 35 years and Tracey’s story still resonates and holds meaning to so many... God Bless you Tracey I hope you and your son found peace and happiness. God Bless 🙏🏼🕊
My gosh 😭
Buck Thurman was from Kentucky. He grew up seeing abuse, and sadly went on the same route. He literally jumped up and down on her breaking her neck in 3 places. No matter how many times she called the police, got restraining orders, Buck knew he could do what he wanted. The day of the brutal attack on her, a police officer, from Torrington was scared to even approach her. Buck sensing this continued to beat and kick her until she laid motionless. He got time, but he's out I think. This case was just like the "Burning Bed". Millions of women are abused daily. Ask yourself, if it was your mother, sister, daughter being abused like this what would you do?
Capital punishment is the right sentence for the cold-blooded murder. It won't take everybody to do it ;)
Everyone says kill them, but not every person can just kill people, you know. You probably also don't kill people 😂, really what would you actually do?
You too, Deborah. God bless :)
@Clear Day ~ Ahhh, that's why you understand then... Those of us who have been around, or are related to law enforcement people see how criminals work. It's been nice talking to a common sense person on this. Be safe, & have a blessed weekend...🎶🙂👮♂️
@Deborah Kerns Not myself. But I have two cousins whose husbands are in the police force, and another cousin whose husband is a detective :)
The movie based on this is called A Cry For Help....it really shows the hell Tracy went through...how she lived ...I have no clue ...I am so happy she won her law suit ..however..she is disabled for life...If you haven't seen the movie..check it out...very good movie.
Dan An Stac Cooper I remember watching that on TV as a kid (the same for The Burning Bed) and it scared the hell out of me. Sometimes evil is sleeping right next to you. The police and family services dropped the ball BIG TIME when these women asked for help.
The policeman sat in his car and watched it happen, then he got out of his patrol car to get a better look while her ex husband continued to stab her.
@Deborah Kerns it's so fucked up ....fucking bs
@Gigi Weakley ~ All that officer cared about was his retirement coming up.
@Jody Doherty this is so unbelievable.. that a police officer knew what was happening and didn't bother to intervene
Shirley Richardson Stab her.... he stomped on her neck breaking it in the process! The cop heard the screams, calmly walked over and stood there in a stupor!! Buck was holding their son screaming “I just killed your mother” then tried to attack her more as they were putting her in the ambulance!! This story was by far one of if not the worst case of DV I’ve ever heard of!!
Mothers!!!! Think to your children and be indipendent!!!!!!!
Phhh, think of your children and select the right husband. Just act as if your life depended on it.
Ivana Bedini Tracey was Independant! She tried very hard to get away from Buck! The police didn’t want to give her a OOP! Because he was her husband! Buck stole their son and they both Tracey and Buck ended up in he police station and they told her to talk to him?!?! To work it out!! This was a time when husbands could legally rape their wives! Because up until 1984 a wife was considered to be her husbands property! Not to mention the cops stood there while Buck was stomping on her breaking her neck in the process! Prompting the law suit related to a violation of the 14 amendment equal gender rights! The Thurman Law was created because of her story. Women literally had no help back then!
I remember seeing that on tv and it turned my stomach and made me scared of being hurt by men I've seen my drunk father when I was a child beat my mother and one time he pulled a gun on her I lived on nerve medicine most of my childhood because of it I've been mistreated in the past by boyfriends and I chose to be safe I've never been married I have no children and I'm glad I was never stuck in an abusive relationship
Well I don't really like to talk about it very much because my father was raised by an alcoholic father as well and I try not to hold a grudge against him for it he did in his last few years change put it down and stopped being abusive he passed away from lung cancer in 96 and I have and will always love and miss him but that movie has always been a dark reminder of my childhood and I just refused to live like that but thank you for the nice words
I'm in the same boat as you ...sending you positive vibes and lots of hugs...talk about it as much as you can..dont hold it in like I did...just makes it worse.
That's me. Hope that he will change.
Woman, he stomped on her neck. If this is you, you need to save your self.
You must make a plan to leave. Have important personal documents, cash, family keepsakes stored at a friend's house. Make the local police aware of your situation and have a spare burner cell phone that he knows nothing about incase he takes your cell phone. Leaving is the most dangerous time, be aware and prepare for your safety. Take care of yourself.
nichala nick Why did you post on Star Garcia’s comment that “Thank God he did change”?? After posting this?? Honey he’s NOT GONNA CHANGE AND HE HASN’T CHANGED!!! I’m sure he says he won’t do it again... until he does and HE WILL!!
nichala nick Jesus Christ if that’s truly your situation... LEAVE NOW!! Learn from this video and Tracey’s story! Luckily there’s more protection today for women! Don’t wait until it’s too late and your friends and family are watching a video about you!!!
We are dumb animals!... nothing's going to alter our DNA in the foreseeable future. I remember reading that a meat skewer pushed into the temple in the middle of the night will stop domestic terror in it's tracks!!!
With what she had to go through the pain, fear, suffering as well as once u have a child and knowing your child is having to hear and endure it as well tuere isnt enough money in the world to pay. Picture watching your son or daughter at that age having to hear and see what her son did as well as whe. He took him on the fear your child was feeling. Watching the movie made me sick and nervous knowing this was real. Cops back then I don't think were trained to handle situations like that nor did they think they should get involved in married cases which is wrong. When a women, man or child is in danger even if it is words u serve and protect u took an oath to protect and serve. I know it's dangerous and frightening in that line of work but u picked it. I just cannot believe or imagine the struggle she had to hear and days, months and years she had to take this. She should of received more. My heart goes out to u and your son Tracey and i feel bad u had to experience this as well as anyone in this situation. I have been there and it is scary. To this day I still look in my rearview mirror to see if I'm being followed, scared to answer the phone thinking it's going to be a threat even with years it's been. That terror never leaves u that feeling leaves u with fear in life as well as when u have children for once they r older. Tracey I am so sorry for what u had to go through and fighting this battle on your own with no help. U r the true gladiator, Xena the warrior princess and more. Having to protect your child from this guy and for survival u r the hero in any person eyes who has been through this as well as hasn't. ❤️. I hope u got to hsve laughter once he was locked away and got to love the way u should of with your son.
Star Garcia I’m sorry that happened to you. I also had an unfortunate encounter! It certainly does take its toll on your whole life!! It’s astonishing how much things have changed and yet so much stayed the same!! Granted today women have more support through awareness and organizations that help with a safe place to go and help with the legalities, yet with all this women still become trapped in situations especially when it’s their husband!! To be torn between love for the man you thought you knew and the man he actually is!!! Not to mention if there’s kids involved!! You know what they say.. if we don’t learn from history it’s bound to repeat itself!! I wish you luck and prosperity 🕊🍀
@Jody Doherty 😢. I knew they weren't probably trained and from the movie seen how many times they asked her if she was married and if that was her husband and then they would shrug her off. But to know they could even get rapped really hurts to know how many ladies were back then and to know the guy or lady cause men do as well but to know there was nothing they could do. I was rapped and it really plays an emotional struggle on u. Heartbreaking thank u for letting me know.
Star Garcia No police where not trained to deal with DV back then not to mention that the laws on DV were very different back then as well! Up until 1984 a wife was considered to be her husbands property to do with as he saw fit! Including rape! There was no such thing as spousal rape!
nichala nick Ok I literally just saw your post on another comment stating that “That’s me.. hoping he’ll change”??? 1 Day ago as well.
@nichala nick that is great news to hear and I'm happy to hear that he changed. Your a brave lady. Most ladies or men that go through this sometimes would still fear that person. Thank you for sharing. ❤️
I am typing this comment from the corner of Hoffman in Torrington, CT. I live on the corner. Can confirm TPD’s near lack of redeeming qualities.
I probably wouldve offed him before he could touch me
Yeah right, because you kill people, huh? I can tell from your pic you are one cold blooded killer lol 😂
Unfortunately, then you would be in prison. America's justice system isn't for the victim.
The Lifetime movie had Nancy McKeon from The Facts of Life as Tracey. The scenes that impacted me the most were the ones with the policeman who stood there uselessly while she was stabbed and stomped and the court scene when walked to the stand and was so disabled by the abuse that it seemed to take forever for her to reach the seat.
orlandobabe umm yea...🤪
Jody Doherty oh yeah when lifetime made really great movie.
Dan An Stac Cooper Same here.. married 18 together for 20 and we’ve known each other since we were 15! He’s never laid a finger on me out of anger!! Nor would he ever! In that I consider myself blessed..
Taji Pershard Yes the scene were he almost kills her!! I was a kid and I watched it with my mother... I was mortified and terrified!! Kudos to the actors in that movie they really nailed it! The brutality of it!! That’s back when Lifetime still made good movies! Real stories with meaning and purpose!
Yep...its called A Cry For Help....that movie made me make the decision that I would never stay in an abusive relationship. L I kept my promise...18 yrs with my husband...going strong and he would never put a finger on me in a hurtful way...I got lucky...some woman don't.and that just breaks my heart...every woman deserves a loving touch and a safe home and a happy life with your partner.
Thank you for what you did for all women!!!!
😔😔😔😔😔 omg just watched the documentary. The police failed to protect her. 😡😠😢😢😢😢😢😭.
men SUCK period!
Another crazy Ass feminist. We are not all like him
So do you 😂👍
Lucy Terrier Abortion isn’t a crime.
Lilac Milkshake Women would have done the same if we weren’t held back by oppressive dicks.
All men suck. Misogynist knuckle draggers.
I would've been blown his ass off. Sorry p.o.s
Lifetime movie. I remember this story.
I saw the movie before and I was very disturbed by it. That man should have gotten life without the possible of parole. He need serious help. No man shouldn't put their hands on a woman . Vice versa.
Once a male ....abusers you LEAVE he not a MAN
@Danyel Cheathon talk to Emergency Hotline NOW
I’m glad your ok. One thing the demons aren’t as scary as you think. What appears real isn’t. You are free even in your mind. It’s what you do with your freedom. Are you in school?
petra bach my mistake was asking for a new judge and a new minors council. They punished me hard and I thought it was my right to ask. My ex told them I didn’t have a job car home and he lied I had all of those things and I was scheduled to move into my apartment two weeks later. So I sent my daughter to Los Angeles with family in which I had permission from a judge to do he filed an ex parte and the court found a change in circumstance and switched our custody I had his custody. But then I was so distraught in paperwork I asked for a new judge and a new minors council and they denied me and put me on supervised visits. Then months later I hired an attorney. I signed a stipulation and I followed the order. Moving forward to January of this year at an exchange he slammed my arm in his car door in front of our daughter. He was going to run over my feet. Then he denied me parenting time. We talked to the mediator he gave them old info and now we have to go back to mediation. He is trying to get rid of me in our daughters life and doing all he can so I feel hopeless and get back with him and I don’t want to do that. My daughter has had vaginitis twice being in his care. I am so tired i don’t know what to do. I will keep fighting for justice for my daughter.
@Danyel Cheathon why did the Court grant him custody of your daughter? I am fine still battling my inner demon's that haunt me ever so often . I am working again which helps my mental l stability But I know I will never trust a man again. But I believe there was a reason we stayed alive ,not only to tell our story but also to help other to get through there dark times and give them hope and reason to live a normal happy live and see the self's as a beautiful person again And the main thing is to always remember not to blame one self Where do you need the help in
petra bach how are you now. The court gave him sole custody. We have to go to trial. Sometimes I feel so hopeless. My daughter is suffering in silence. She’s six years old. I need help. I need someone to help me.
make me up
Thank you Tracey ❤️🧚♂️🌟
