Crime

To my loving mother who I don't want to worry, I have had this on my mind for a while. I have this secret that I used to be afraid to tell. I've since told two people and it's almost a relief and a weight off my shoulder. It's almost as if telling someone and hearing them say it's okay is a healing factor for me. Mom, I know you worry about me. I know that you sometimes think I'm not always the best student and I know that you worry about my grades. I also know how you worry about my stress. This semester was one of the roughest of all. Not only was a afraid because you were sick but I have more to my story which I never told you. I denied it and never let myself believe it at first. But eventually, you'll find a trigger. My trigger was when I was with Nick, the guy that I have a thing...

When you first find out that your partner has been sexually assaulted, you’re not going to know how to respond. While you’re at first shocked, your shock may quickly turn to anger toward their abuser. Your job as their partner is to be supportive toward them, even if you’re not quite sure how to be. Sexual assault is traumatizing for the victim. They may be triggered during sexual activities with you, they may even have flashbacks to their assault(s). As their partner now, you will realize that even though they’re in bed with you, they’re still partially in bed with their abuser. And they might continue to be for the rest of their life. You, as their supporter, may now feel as though you’re going to re-traumatize them. Not on purpose of course, but you might be a little scared of...

Dear France, Those pictures which are surfing of innocent people killed mostly those of children's in Syria by France Bombers are true. Then its such an unfortunate of mankind to witness this.With time wounds can heal not memories. We share your pain to some stretch but vengeance of this kind is a punch below the waist. Bombing places through analytical reports is not a solution. If its revenge then why not combat through your ground troops. Lives lost in Syria bleed the same blood as of any peace loving country like yours. A response to violence as such a terrorist attack in Paris can never be justified with bombing. This fight will never end. Their will be many more lined up and everybody knows this. Eradicating ISIS is need of the hour for everyone.But best kept in mind of the...

Daechois, daechoises So that's it, it's official, you are at war against us. What is frustrating, it is that you have no uniform or distinguishing sign, we don't know/recognize you, and we did so anyone against that fight. Frustration which I hope will not lead to the designation of false culprits. Yet even if each death is without doubt for you a victory, I need you to know that you are not ready to win. In truth it is even impossible. Because whatever you do, you'll never change. Here, in France, we what we like, it's life. And all the pleasures that go with it. For us, between born and die as late as possible, the idea is mainly of kiss, laugh, eat, play, kiss, drink, read, to take a nap, kiss, talk, eat, argue, paint, kiss, go for a walk, Gardening, read, kiss, offer,...

Dear terrorists, suicide bombers and mercenaries, You might believe your deadly attacks are causing fear and panic, all while signal boosting what you stand for. You might believe these attempts at causing terror will help you gain followers, or maybe scare everyone enough so we stop fighting. So we cower and let you beat us to the ground, as if we were mice, easily crushed under your feet. You may be brainwashed into thinking this, or you may think it of your own accord. Either way, you are wrong. Because we, the people of the world, will NOT bow down to you. We will NOT cower, scamper and hide while you destroy our lives, tear apart our families and turn our homes into piles of rubble. We WILL stand strong. We WILL come together and face your threats head-on. We...

​To The Man That Raped Me, For the longest time i hated you, not only because of what you did to me, but because you took away what small innocence I had left in me. You took away the trust i had in men for, what seemed like forever. Now i'm sure if you're reading this you'll be sitting on your bed furious and yelling and saying that it didn't happen, or that i was too drunk to remember. Well hey guess what, i remember. It's now almost a year later and most of my hate towards you has subsided into, surprisingly enough, me feeling sorry for you. Maybe something happened to you when you were little and you couldn't figure out the line between consent and being passed out. Or maybe you're just an idiot and knew the line but did it anyways. Either way I feel sorry for you because you...

I just read Kathrine Wood's open letter. While I understand her point of view, she completely misses Mr. Hildreth's point. No, just being respectful of police officers won't change the outcome of every police encounter. However, being respectful of our police is a simple and very powerful way to change most encounters with police officers. More important, such an approach would have resulted in far different outcomes in many of the very bad encounters our society has experienced recently. Had Michael Brown walked away from the police officer instead of engaging and, according to the breadth of the evidence, attempting to take his weapon, he would be alive today. This statement and Hildreth's point are not about whether or not the police were right or wrong in these...

We never met in person, but I've heard a lot about you and the mistakes you made on February 26th, 2009. You took the life of my best friend and older brother, Jay. He was only 21 years old then; I was 11. If he had lived, he would be 27. He would have graduated college, and possibly married and had children. From the moment I heard the news, up until a few months ago, I hated you. I hated the person who took my brother away from me. I hated that you were alive, and he wasn't. I hated how unfair it was. When you were released from prison this past summer, I realized what I needed to do - forgive you. I'm 18 years old now, and my brother has been gone for some of the most important years of my life. The closure I was never allowed when I was younger, is now one of the things I feel I...

23/10/15 A first formal open letter of reprimand, correction and warning to Mr Ian Gorst, Chief Minister of Jersey, cc Jersey’s Lieutenant-Governor, who this formal letter is also aimed at. This is also a first formal warning that action is to be taken and must be taken, in Jersey and the UK to bring the matters below to a close. This letter also contains a formal complaint against Sir Philip Bailhache, which is to be dealt with by relevant and non-conflicted authorities. This letter in no way covers my full complaint nor can it, but it is an initial step, expected to be followed by further investigation by the authorities approached or further formal letters/proceedings. Tribute: This letter contains information made available to the public by the Jersey bloggers. Thank you...

Dear Press, After a considerable time of observing crass and biased reporting on the National CSA Inquiry, and allegations of sexual abuse against high profile figures, I wonder if you would consider relenting biased reporting as it affects survivors on a daily basis and opens old wounds continually and leaves some survivors having breakdowns, in hospital or even in a few tragic cases, committing suicide. I deliver newspapers across my district and I get to see contradicting, conflicting, biased and blatantly made up articles and headlines, some of which are then disproved. I also get to see something that you collectively seemingly do not. I get to see the distressed and outraged reactions of thousands of genuine survivors and their supporters. What I can say with confidence...
