It wasn’t until I started thinking like a fighter and had a crash course in strategy and fighting back ~ which I lived and breathed every day for months ~ that I gained the skills and the mindset that brought clarity and confidence. . . . Don’t wait for a reason. Learn these skills now. Hone your inner fighter and let her live inside you, quietly dormant but agile when you need her. I had the shrapnel version. I wasn’t beaten, raped, killed, or permenantly disabled like so many women are every day.
I love knowing I can fight. I love knowing that by writing this, other girls and women are accepting (yes, accepting) their own power, as well.
Someone is threatening you with violence, carrying a weapon, and stalking you. Your responsibility is to your own safety, and in that context, saying, "I would like to live the rest of my life without this person (or any person) targeting me for violence" is not unreasonable.
I think she simply wanted him to be unable to stalk her anymore. Is that too much for her to ask?
I mean, really? I think this not in any way a prosecutable case, and if it is, I cannot imagine being on the jury and voting to convict.
And so he carried a loaded gun at all times because if those creditors got close he was going to shoot the first one in the face, and the last thing the second one was going to see was the bullet exiting the giant hole in the back of his partner’s head and the blood splattering all over right before it then entered his brain. He was going to kill both those creditors with one bullet. And then those creditors wouldn’t be bothering him anymore.
The courtroom was silent. The judge had his jaw on the desk in front of him. You could see the defense attorney saying “SHUT UP! SHUT UP!” in her head. The Prosecuting Attorney told me afterward that the hair on the back of his neck was standing on end.
Except that revealing this in court shows he's both violent and crazy and thus is a mortal danger to her.
