I have been pondering my childhood a lot lately. Thinking about all the things that have happened to me and one thing that seems to keep coming up is the thought: there is no way that in my interactions with neighbors, teachers, principals, Girl Scouts, and other adults I have crossed in my daily life that none of them could not have known something was terribly wrong.
They all knew with their interactions with my female abductor that she was not stable. In fact, that she was capable of violence (as they found out when I showed up to class in first grade covered in blood). They all saw that. They also saw he was a mean man, what little they saw of him. They also saw me and how I was always in distress. Yes, they were not in the home to witness the brutality, but, they saw the signs and knew: “something is terribly wrong”.
So, why didn’t any of them do something, anything?
Because they all suffered from a catastrophic incurable disease called HTAT or HANDS THAT ARE TIED.
This is a terrible disease suffered by billions of people, especially our elected leaders who don’t do their job and turn around and say “My hands are tied”, but that’s another story for another time.
I know first hand how people have turned a blind eye all throughout my childhood and how the police and the National Center For Missing and Exploited Children have turned a blind eye due to their hands are tied. I can’t do that to another.
My abductors have a Jack Russell Terrier who is going to be 10 or 11 years old. Even though she is in her 70’s (in dog years), she is just like a two year old SPOILED ROTTEN! We all, including myself, have made her this way.
My male abductor’ health has deteriorated, but, he doesn’t help the situation by ignoring the doctors and doing exactly opposite. His rage and dementia has increased. Their Jack Russell Terrier’ left leg was injured about two to three weeks ago while she was with him. He doesn’t know how her leg was injured. Fortunately, it was not broken. He refuses to let her eat, provide her fresh water, take her for walks. When she is taken out to do her business, he chokes her with her chain even though she has at least three dog harnesses (he refuses to use them) and screams and cusses at her to “HURRY UP AND PISS!” She spends the majority of her time in their bed with them or in a dog cage.
Sometimes they take her with them when they go somewhere and they leave her in the hot or cold vehicle. I have tried talking with them about the dangers of the temperature and also the threat of her being dognapped. They ignore me.
I have tried to take her out, feed her, give her fresh water and he screams and cusses at me. Yesterday afternoon he started to lunge for me while screaming and cussing because I took her out of the cage and out to pee.
My female abductor refuses to do anything because, well, she also suffers from HTAT. I got chewed out last night by her about it. I am just to turn a blind eye.
Well, I can’t do that.
I have no doubt in my mind that he is trying to kill her so she will not live after he dies. Actually, don’t write me off as nuts, because NBC News did a story on people who take their animals to the grave with them. You can read all about it at:
The pharaohs of Ancient Egypt use to do the same thing. They would have their favorite pets murdered and buried in the tomb with them so the pet could be with them in the afterlife.
In Prince William County, their is an unwritten and unadvertised list. It is a list of whose lives are considered of value in Prince William County. It is a very short list and in order of priority:
1. Elected Officials and their families
2. Elected Officials cronies (only the ones they truly care about)
3. Police Officers and their families
Every one else can go, well, you know where.
I would like to ask any one in WordPress world who cares about animals if you could let Chief Hudson know that this letter is for him. I would call, but, after the call to the main number and then to him alerting him of the suspicious man taking photos of Starbucks ventilation and lighting systems (about the time of the terrorist attack in California) went ignored, I pretty much know they would turn a blind eye to a Jack Russell Terrier out of spite due to my vocal “viewpoints”.
Now, be nice. After all, your not me, so he should listen to you. His number is (703)792-6650.
Dear Chief Stephan M. Hudson,
First of all, let me congratulate you on your retirement which officially begins at the end of your shift on March 31, 2016. You deserve it. I know you must be exhausted from holding two positions at the same time: your position as Chief of Police and the Head of Internal Affairs.
Chief Hudson, I know you must have much to do in your last week before you leave and I don’t want to take you away from that, but, if you could squeeze in helping a vulnerable dog, I would appreciate it. Also, since she is an animal and therefore privileged to be on Prince William County’ unwritten and unadvertised short list of whose lives are of value, you are obligated to help her.
I care about her and you will never know how contacting you is breaking my heart because of the fear deep down that the police will take her, but, I can’t stand seeing them mistreat her and possibly trying to kill her. All those childhood years I was mistreated and others turned a blind eye due to their HTAT really sucked. I wonder if somebody had taken the initiative, would I have been returned to my family years ago and my abductors would be in jail. Obviously, this is something we will never know and even if we could turn back time, I have no doubt that those adults in my life would repeat history.
Chief Hudson, I am hoping that you can convince them to properly feed her every day, give her fresh water every day, walk her every day as the weather allows, take her out to do her business every two to three hours and be patient with her. After all, she cannot take herself to the toilet on her own and I don’t know how you would like it if you needed assistance to the bathroom and the person helping you there screamed at you “HURRY UP AND PISS!” If you could convince them to use her harness so they will not choke her (she has three harnesses). If you could convince them to give her a bath at least once a week. If you could convince them to stop hitting her and kicking her. Chief Hudson, her leg did not injure itself!!!
Chief, I am also hoping you can convince them to leave her home when they have to go out instead of condemning her to staying in a hot/cold car or truck while they shop or are in the doctors office.
I have been more than willing to help them take care of her but they are refusing all help. If you could convince them to allow me to help take care of her. Chief Hudson, I don’t want to see her taken away and I don’t want her to be killed due to abuse and neglect.
Chief Hudson, they desperately need help. They’re mean, cruel, violent, narcissistic, vulgar, abusive, lie through their teeth, combative, argumentative, unreasonable. I am hoping that for their Jack Russell Terrier’ sake you can reach them.
The next door neighbor has a cat they have taken a hatred to like the Guide Dog across the street that my male abductor said he would impale with a pitch fork. My male abductor is planning on setting a trap to catch the cat and drive it 50 miles up to West Virginia to set it loose. They hate cats. My female abductor said she has a different idea. To buy a gun and shoot the cat. Lately, they have not talked in front of me about their desire to see a cop killed, but while it is good they lost their death wish for the police, it could just mean that their death wish is temporarily moved to the next door neighbors cat.
Chief Hudson, these are not reasonable people. They do not care about anything nor any one but themselves. So, it would be wise to have backup when you show up. While they do not care about a dead cop (s), I do care. Please be careful.
Chief, I am sorry if you find me brazen and I know you are busy, and I know I am nothing and my life means absolutely nothing to any of you, but, don’t curse an innocent dog just because I exposed the “dirt”. You all took a gamble concerning that suspicious man at Starbucks by doing nothing, and thankfully nothing tragic has happened, and hopefully will not happen. If he had been a terrorist would all those lives have been worth it just because I exposed the “dirt”? Just like the call I made about the blood curdling screams of a woman one night. I had to call 911 twice. I call you all only when necessary, and you can research how many times I “burdened” you all through the 911, Main Number, and your number. Don’t curse others because of me.
Chief, I don’t want to see their Jack Russell Terrier abused, mistreated, killed, nor taken away and “put down”. PLEASE, help her, if not because of your disdain and hatred for me “blowing the whistle” on your cop (who WAS in the wrong), then for the sake of the county’ unwritten and unadvertised short list of lives that are of value to the county’ and police’ time.
