FAYETTEVILLE (KFSM) – A Fayetteville Police Officer is being investigated by the Washington County Sheriff’s Office after a woman said he slapped her, according to a spokeswoman for the sheriff’s office.

Sgt. Dominic Swanfeld was placed on paid administrative leave on Saturday (Jan. 31), according to his employee time card report.

The Fayetteville Police Department asked the Washington County Sheriff’s Office to investigate after a woman said he slapped her twice at Swanfeld’s residence in Fayetteville, the spokeswoman said.

Swanfeld was suspended in 2014 after an unrelated investigation by the Fayetteville Police Department.

He has been with the department since 1997.

    Is this a typical “I’m a girl so you can’t hit me, but I can do what I want to you” situation? There is a lot more to the story than this article. If a woman wants to slap, bite, kick, or fight like a man, she deserves to be treated like a man. Gender equality and all that, right? Women, want to be treated like a lady? Act like one. Fortunately, most do.

        Sarah, oh product of the feminist movement, do you know the statistics in which woman are the primary or mutual combatants of domestic violence? Should it not be “I repeat, never hit anyone. Ever?
        Also, here’s some interesting reading that will rock your world (and not in a good way) and cannot be found in any woman’s studies classes – The fall of every major historical empire in history can be tied to the Feminization of that culture? http://www.americanthinker.com/articles/2010/05/when_masculine_virtues_go_out.html covers Rome but the same can be seen in Greece and China.
        Just like all Liberal ideals that seek to sophomorically rebel against standards just for the sake of it, feminism (a sub-set of Liberalism has made hysteria (word chosen carefully – look it up) a weapon where reason is given no ground nor moral compass. Sarah, have you seen the damage that feminism has wrought? When men were marginalized in the Black community, Drug use and crime sky-rocketed. Marriage (the foundation of civilization) is on the decline. When woman entered the workforce, supply caused a reduction in wages. All in the interest of feminism. The result? Abortions, unhappy adults and even less than happy children. Children are not being raised by a loving family. The Village raising them are poorer, nut cases in pursuit of self-destructiveness that hasn’t been seen since Rome!
        Feminism has disempowered woman. They are no longer esteemed as the single most important care-giver or source of Love and Life. The sexes were never equal. They were meant to be different in order to compliment each other. Together, you have a productive, Morally based civilization that progresses and does not disintegrate as we are witnessing today.

        Get Real – you imply the woman hit the man. Not so.
        Also generally speaking, I would not be quoting from an opinion based website such as American Thinker.com.
        Do you know Thomas Lifson or Ed Laskwy?
        The ALEXA rank for their website is 10,647 which is way down a slippery slope. In other words, there are 10,646 more credible websites.
        Why not try the NATIONAL INSTITUTE OF HEALTH which verifies women comprise fifty per cent of the population yet only commit 14.7% of homicides.
        Try facts before opinion.
        You just made yourself look like a fool.

    Does anyone not think that this slug being suspended four times, is a big problem? Wake up before he goes farther. Obvious he has issues, along with FPD Chief. Dos he have some dirt on someone? Would you still have a job after four suspensions? Now, remember this idiot is sworn to serve and protect. He would not know truth and honesty, if it hit him In the face! He is a disgrace and dirt cloud over FPD.
