    My main question kind of comes from the opposite side - if the guy threatening his ex-girlfriend hadn't had a record of violence, would the police have mounted an adequate response?

    "Sorry, lady, we can't help you. Your ex-boyfriend has a perfect Citizenship Score."

    Likewise, would his ethnicity count towards or against a certain response? His economic class? What about hers?

    Adapting law enforcement responses to the people involved, instead of the situation reported, seems to me like an extremely dangerous road to go down. I don't like this at all, on a lot of levels.
