Crime

to my rapist...I needed you to hear my words and see my tears. I needed to be strong and tell everyone what you did to me but you took the cowards way out. 3 weeks before we started you court martial you took your own life rather than face the truth of what you had done. Well here is that unread Impact Statement; just because you are gone doesn't mean it didn't happen. In the time that has passed since my rape my world has been turned upside down. I was a generally happy person before and an outgoing one at that but these days I find myself withdrawn and isolated more and more. I no longer sleep but a couple of hours a night; if it isn't the nightmares that wake me it's the fact that with every noise I hear, every creek in my house I wonder if there is someone there to harm me. The...

It was 1981 and I was twenty years old. I lived in a little beach house in Venice, California with a roommate. A girl I worked with at Mace Neufeld Productions in Beverly Hills. I worked there part time and held another position as the acting assistant to my acting coach, Nina Foch. I had been her student for nearly three years. Through her class I met some wonderfully talented people who became my friends. Together, we independently produced plays and showcases in and around LA. It was an exciting time in my life. In 1981 I was part of a new theater called “The Living Room.” I did one play with this group. It was a play by Mary Orr titled “The Wisdom of Eve,” upon which the film “All About Eve” was based. I had a small role, the part that Marilyn Monroe played in the film version. It...

Operation Amberstone is a new initiative by Hampshire Constabulary to pretend that they care about abuse and the vulnerable after their consistent failings were picked up by HMIC the other year. Hampshire Constabulary remain corrupt and brutal and not properly overseen. As described here by Good Cop Down, a police officer whistle blower who has suffered for speaking up just as I have. As yet none of Hampshire Constabulary's victims have justice and I suffer daily and nightly flashbacks to what they have done to me in the past. And I write this in fear of my life at the hands of the police. Here is Good Cop Down's blog https://goodcopdown.wordpress.com/category/whistleblowing/ This letter is being written using the rule that what I write cannot be unwritten. This is because after a...

Dear PM Sir, Hope this letter from a random woman in your country brings you face to face with the reality of plight of Indian girls and women. For ‘being aware’ and ‘being in action’ are two different things! We celebrated the 70th year of Indian Independence this year. Today I feel Freedom is yet to be achieved. For I believe the women of India are still not free. As a young girl, in my teens, I remember celebrating Independence Day with full zeal and enthusiasm. I was proud of my country and countrymen. Feeling of pride is never taught; it is born within, for something or someone we feel is worth it. But today, as a mother, I feel ashamed and sorry for my daughter. ‘Ashamed’ because I am raising my daughter in a country where lust for skin does not seem to end! ‘Ashamed’ because...

August 5, 2016 Ms. Christine Lagarde, Managing Director, The International Monetary Fund, 700 19th St NW, Washington, DC 20431, United States Dr. Jim Yong Kim, President of the World Bank, 1818 H St NW, Washington, DC 20433, United States Dear Ms. Lagarde and Dr. Kim, RE: Cronyism will plunge Rwanda into chaos if left unchecked by the country’s financiers I begin my letter by thanking you for supporting my home country, Rwanda. In 2016 alone, your two agencies will lend Rwanda nearly a half billion dollars — the World Bank’s loans and grants amount USD285 million while the IMF’s Standby credit totals USD204 million. The purpose of this open letter, however, is about cronyism in Rwanda. Case in point is the Kigali Convention Centre (KCC), financed by the...

“Those who kill their own children and discriminate daily against them because of the colour of their skin; those who let the murderers of blacks remain free, protecting them, and furthermore punishing the black population because they demand their legitimate rights as free men — how can those who do this consider themselves guardians of freedom?” Ernesto “Che” Guevara, 1964 Why is this still true today? More than 50 years ago, this speech was made, and yet still, the same problem remains. Don’t let the media fool you. Don’t let the police fool you. I have heard many a statement which proposes “firm action soon”, and that this “problem cannot remain”. Nobody is doing anything about this. How many more black people are going to die before someone in power changes the law, or brings...

Lieber Dietmar Knöchelmann, es gab nur uns. WIr waren eine Einheit. Als Kinder waren wir, gerade mal 6 Jahre alt, gemeinsam im Spessart unterwegs. Wir haben den Wald geliebt. Deine und meine Eltern waren Freunde. Bis zu dem Tag als mein Vater starb, und meine Mutter Deinen Vater für seinen Tod verantwortlich machte. In der Tat war es unsere Schuld. Es war Deine idee den Schacht im Wald runterzuklettern. Es wahr eine alte verschlossene Miene. Du hattest sie gefunden, aber die kleine Stahltür wahr verschlossen. Trotzdem hast Du es irgendwie geschafft die Tür aufzumachen und bist eingestiegen. Du hattest noch nicht mal eine Taschenlampe. Es waren noch keine 2 Minuten bis ich Deine Hilferufe hörte. Ich rannte so schnell ich konnte in die naheliegende Kneipe. Es war Sonntag Morgen und...
