BIOGRAPHY OF ROSAURA TORRES

Author Rosaura Torres is a Philadelphia, PA resident, who has won first place in the 2011 International Latino Book Awards, in the Women's Issues category. Ms. Torres released her new controversial and provocative book, " ABUSE HIDDEN BEHIND THE BADGE" in July 2010.

The 2011 International Latino Book Awards Celebration was held at el Museo Del Barrio, New York City, during Book Expo America. Ms Torres has been a vocal activist against domestic violence involving woman, children and men for the past 3 years. Ms. Torres' involvement in this mission came out of her own personal experience as a survivor of domestic violence involving police officers.

Rosaura Torres was born on February 26, 1960 in Milwaukee, Wisconsin to parents of Puerto Rican descent. Ms. Torres now resides in Philadelphia, Pennsylvania. Her mother's name was Carmen and her father Ismale Torres. They taught her never to give up, to continue forward regardless the challenge. They were hard working and loving parents.

Ms. Torres is the mother of three children and grandmother to three grandchildren.

Ms. Torres comes from a modest and humble background. During her childhood, Ms. Torres attended schools in Philadelphia; Camden, New Jersey and Fort Myers, Florida.

Ms. Torres has a range of talent and experience from being a Receptionist, Administrative Assistant, Fitness Consultant, Sales Executive at Al Dia Newspaper to serving as Public Relations Coordinator for pharmaceuticals in Camden, New Jersey.

Due to two (2) retinal detachment surgeries stemming from her experiences with domestic violence, Ms. Torres is an avid activist speaking out against domestic violence and more specifically "The Code of Silence" within police departments. She stands for the right of everyone regardless your gender. "You have the right to not get violated!" says Ms. Torres.

Ms. Torres latest accomplishment has been eleven (11) years in the making. She has authored and published a provocative and controversial new autobiography titled "ABUSE HIDDEN BEHIND THE BADGE", which is available on-line and at bookstores. The book is Ms. Torres personal story of domestic violence during her relationships with two police officers, one in Philadelphia and the other a Pennsylvania State Trooper.

    This book is horribly written. Ms. Torres or Sadler- whichever name she uses has changed her story so many times. First it was Sadler alone who had abused her and caused a retinal detachment. Then came Mr. Suber. He allegedly caused her second retinal detachment. She claims Sadler is retired, but he is the chief of police. She claims she can't see, almost blind. Her own children have called her a liar about the situation. The woman is attempting to pull at people's heartstrings. Who was it Ms. Torres-Sadler? Was it the state trooper or the chief inspector? Why did the courts find that you had no just cause and dismiss your case? Your claim in one of your video interviews, "I've had I've fallen and can't get up moments" why? Retinal detachments are easily treated with a gas bubble. How can you be almost blind but manage to act in the play, "Monologues of a Poetic Mistress" and travel to promote the book that you allegedly wrote when you claim you can't see? I call bull on your story. I would not recommend this book to anyone. Google her online. You will have a rude awakening.
