Now this really makes my blood boil. As someone who’s family has already undergone very real and very aggressive court hearings for a sexual assault/abuse case, the people who file false accusations to make a quick profit make me physically sick. As someone who’s family was threatened and their daughter/sister was beaten to the point of hospitalization, I know that YOU are the type of person that made it possible for her abuser to walk free. So here is an open letter to the “woman”, there is a more appropriate word that comes to mind when I think of you, that broke my brother.
You saw an opportunity in your drunken stupor to lash out against my brother because he was going to a bachelors party that you didn’t want him to go to.
You punched him, scratched him, kicked him, and damaged his property. When he asked you to please move your things out when you were sober, you threw yourself to the ground and started yelling for help. He called your friend to come get you because he didn’t know what to do. When your friend got there, he saw you rolling around on the ground yelling “Reid hurt me, Reid hurt me!” and when asked if you wanted to be taken to the hospital you said no and got right up off the ground. Your friend took you home without a mark on you except for the bruises you acquired on your shins from falling down drunk. My brother on the other hand was left with a destroyed apartment, bruises down his arms, and a phone call from the police.
You told your dead beat Dad that Reid had abused you. He saw an opportunity to cure his financial troubles, not to help the daughter he left behind. A phone call was made to the police and a report was filed. You were still drunk the next day while talking to officers……
When you had sobered up you called my brother sobbing. You “didn’t mean it” you were “just drunk and mad he was going to the strip club with friends for the bachelor party”. You said no charges are ever going to be made and if he would please take you back…..
Today, December 5th, he sits in court while you go to graduation parties. Although you didn’t press charges, court was necessary for the report filed. Your false accusations could have ruined his entire future with his company. He has paid with lawyers, court fees, and his time. YOU are the reason people like my sister, who genuinely are abused, broken, and tortured, don’t receive the justice they deserve. YOU are the reason my family is in turmoil because of your accusations. YOU are the reason I lost my job because I had to go pick my brother up from jail while my parents were out of town.
While you go to Disney, Christmas parties, Graduation parties, think about what you’ve done. Someone who’s family treated you so well, even after you were so ungrateful, is struggling with his health, his spirit, and his future. His reputation did not falter. That at least could not be touched by your ignorance. He is loved throughout the community and by trying to ruin him, you ruined yourself. You are officially the most hated person in Knoxville.
You didn’t even show up for court or answer your phone when they called you. How can you put someone through this, admit you were wrong, beg them to take you back, then not be there for them when they need you to reverse your false accusations? But its okay. Because you are beneath him and we all know that. It’s not like we didn’t expect that.
But in January, for the second court hearing, I hope you actually show up. So that you can see what you’ve done. I hope that you know my sister was raped, tortured, and beaten by her boyfriend. THAT is something worth the lawyers, the time, the court hearings. YOU are nothing but a coward.
I hope you learn from this. I hope you grow up. I hope my brother never has to see the likes of you again. But mostly I pray for the people who still have no idea what you’ve done. You bait them on Facebook to ask you “whats wrong”. You beg for their pity. What story have you told them? It doesn’t matter. My brother is better than you. He does not speak ill of you or beg for pity.
He accepts responsibility for his actions. Which were dating your crazy ass and allowing you to take advantage of my family.
Its time for you to take responsibility for yours.
