As promised in my last article http://foamcage.com/manatee-county-conservative-in-tampa-bay/and-we-pay-these-people, here’s the follow up for the young lady’s saga with domestic violence.
Once she got her restraining order, she felt she would be safer, especially with the abuser in jail. She received a phone call informing her that he’d be released that evening and went into hiding, she left town without clothing, food, money, or even a credit card with any limit. Her father had about $300 in his pocket, he gave it to her and off she went.
The scumbag was released from jail on his jerk charge, immediately starting a campaign to get to their previously shared home to gather his belongings. The court order stated, ‘One visit with a law-enforcement officer to gather personal belongings,’ however Manatee County Sheriffs Deputies decided he should be able to go there 4 or 5 times. Each time calling the victim to ask about some sort of documents that he wanted and she repeatedly told them she had no clue what he was talking about.
She was out of town, in hiding, worried about if he’d find her, so she had a friend of hers contact the local State Attorney’s office to find out if he’d be arrested on the domestic violence charge or the violation of the injunction charge. Her friend was told, ‘He only pushed her, maybe he was having a bad day, he didn’t really hit her.’
Now, I don’t know about you, but this seems to be the exact opposite of what we pay these people for. They’re there to protect us from the scum that abuses women, steals, kills, etc. but this man simply stated what is above.
I contacted the office in Sarasota to talk to Earl Moreland; naturally, his assistant wouldn’t let me do so. We spoke for a few minutes, I informed her of the situation, and then asked what the office was going to do with this situation. She informed me that they’d inform his supervisor of it, make sure it wasn’t a misunderstanding, and take it up with the person who did it. I asked for a follow up call so I would know what was done, and she stated that I had no business getting a follow up because I have nothing to do with the case. ‘I am sorry, I pay your salary, you work for me, so I do have something to do with the case, as you’re my employee.’ She said we wouldn’t be having that discussion. I know we wouldn’t, because you know that its true and you don’t want to admit that you’re simply sucking off of the teats of society while we work our fingers to the bone trying to make ends meet and you get your guaranteed salary, benefits, and, essentially, job for life.
I was called by someone from the State Attorney’s office that day, late in the afternoon; I wasn’t home, so I got a voicemail. I called back in the morning, only to be told she was out of the office until Monday. I guess crime stops because of the holidays.
