We speak with Christina Dages, wife of fired La Mesa Police Officer, Matthew Dages. Their day started like any other day but after Matthew came home from work protesters showed up the Dages home. A video of an arrest Matthew made that day had gone viral. Their address, phone number and social media accounts had been released to the public. That was over a year ago now. Matthew has since been cleared of low level use of force, passed a voluntary polygraph, the subject admits to pushing Dages and his report is corroborated by witnesses and other on scene officers. So why is he still being prosecuted? We talk about the ways you can get involved with the "Clear Officer Dages" fight and what Christina wants to share with other leows. She wants you to protect your privacy starting today because this could be any one of our husbands.
Ep 4: Christina Dages, Wife of Police Officer Matthew Dages
Pipe Hitter Podcast
Christina Dages is the wife of La Mesa Police Officer Matthew Dages, who was thrust into the media spotlight last year after a video went viral of an arrest at a trolley station in San Diego. The very night of the incident, before any investigation took place - one that would eventually clear Matthew of his use of force - the Dages family had been doxed and protesters showed up at their house. It would spark a firestorm that has yet to be put out. Christina and I talk about the incident, her husband, what’s happened to them over the past year, what they’re fighting for, and why they continue to fight so hard.
