I corresponded with a man last year, a man in a homosexual relationship, who was assaulted by his partner severely enough to require the ministrations of a surgeon. His boyfriend was issued a restraining order coincident to his being charged with assault. That’s how it typically works in New York: A protection order is issued following […]

I started to include the contents of this post in the last one, “Why More Falsely Accused Don’t Speak Out.” Then I thought the topic of angry white men might be due some room of its own. The previous post outlined reasons why men and women who’ve been victimized by false accusations and procedural abuse are subdued from voicing their […]

Continuing on the topic of character assassination, I think it’s important to address this question: If procedural abuses are epidemic (and they are), why do so few vociferously complain? Why isn’t the Internet inundated with personal horror stories (and why aren’t state representatives’ in-boxes choked with them)? We purportedly enjoy the privilege of free speech, so why […]

The previous post on the topic of character assassination glossed the case of Alan Dershowitz. If you recognize the name, you’ll know it’s one I should have put a title in front of, like Harvard Law School professor emeritus or eminent criminal lawyer. But neither of those titles or the qualifications they represent have availed Mr. Dershowitz in his […]

This post continues the blog author’s projected examination of character assassination and its travails. The post’s content is an email addressed to Harvard Law School Professor Emeritus Alan Dershowitz and sent last month. Whether the email reached its intended audience is unknown. Around the beginning of this year, Prof. Dershowitz was idly accused of having had […]

Forthcoming posts on this blog will consider character assassination, and they will critique one of the many execrable ironies of the civil restraining order process. It is possible to falsely accuse a person of anything—literally anything (mooning the neighbors, groping children, chewing the ears off of puppies, rape, you name it)—and the act of false […]

Betty Krachey is miffed. She’s fought for months to raise awareness of legal fraud in her state of Tennessee. She’s started a petition, she’s written letters and made calls, and she’s even discoursed with one of her state representatives, who’s told her he intends to raise the issue of holding false accusers accountable in legislative […]
For the public to be aware of procedural abuses, it has to hear about them. (The blog author’s own story is here, a budding novelist’s is here, a former businesswoman and part-time superhero’s is here, and a former lawyer’s is here.)
Call yourself whatever you want (or nothing at all). Email addresses are strictly confidential, and providing one is optional (but will allow you to be notified of others’ responses and to dialogue immediately if you wish).
The Communications Decency Act exempts this blog’s author from any liability for what you say. Use of an accuser’s name or likeness is advised against, however, for your own protection. Otherwise, civility is the only constraint upon your speech.
See this post, especially, which summarizes much of what these topical editorials concern and may be of value to anyone desperate to explain to a family member, friend, significant other, teacher, spiritual adviser, counselor, employer, attorney, or journalist how s/he’s been wrongly represented and injured. Few people who haven't been abused by them know restraining orders are abused; fewer still how they’re abused or why.
Those with restraining order cases pending are prompted to consult the blog’s Q & A page. Corrections to its author’s interpretations and grudging knowledge, incidentally, are always welcomed.
Since laws concerning restraining orders, their implementation and customs, and different means to combat them can vary from state to state, visitors are also urged to investigate and familiarize themselves with the rules that obtain in their home jurisdictions.
They’re further urged to secure the counsel of a qualified, reliable, and ethical attorney if at all within their means (some do exist).
The restraining order racket is a rigged game that tends to reward inveterate liars and their invertebrate minions.
The truth won’t set you free.
