Not so much anymore. Law enforcement has had their pants sued off for ignoring dv or sweeping it under the rug as you say. Typically, if police get a call with even a hint of dv, they arrest everybody and let the courts sort it out. Sounds to me like the Woods' story on the scene passed the smell test and the officers let it ride. Now it has a life of its own. Btw, the Woods' also have some measure of spousal immunity in this case.
