He was charged with murder-3 and manslaughter-3. They seem to know that not much will come of it, just look at all the other police officers charged with murder and even when convicted they receive minimal sentences, even when they go through a trial, most if not all normal citizens get maxed out usually life, life without, or death sentence, yet officers get 6–10 years they want equality not just in prosecution but also in sentencing. I have caught both my son and daughter wearing diapers while they were teenagers. There is nothing wrong with a teenager wanting or needing to wear diapers. I also wore diapers as a teenager so I can understand why they like to wear diapers. I supported and continue to support both of them in their decisions to wear diapers.
My ex from a fourteen year relationship occasionally worked odd hours, I’d call him at work to ask what he wanted for dinner and to cheer him up a bit. Then, over the course of three months, there would be ad hoc times when I’d call his desk phone but get no answer so I’d call his mobile, initially thinking he had probably finished earlier than anticipated and was on his way home (and to check that he wasn’t keeping me hanging while he went off to the pub without telling me).
So I’d call his mobile and ask ‘where are you?’. A few times he would indeed ‘be on his way home’ – yet things were off. I’d never told him that I could often tell when he was lying, he had a certain smugness about him when he did it, sometimes he would even have a particular smirk that he would do when he thought I wasn’t looking (and I can ‘hear’ someone’s facial expression when they are on the phone – probably due to many work hours and long distance boyfriends in the past). He would claim that he had just left the office yet there would be dead silence in the background, none of the usual urban sound of cars going by or his footsteps on the pavement etc.
Or he would be ‘walking to the train station’ but I could here someone in court shoes clearly keeping step beside him for the duration of the call. I began to chat even longer just so I could listen to what was going on around him. I didn’t let on and he grew ever bolder. He started telling me that he was still at his desk. Lol. He worked in an open plan cavernous office yet he was clearly in a small enclosed area when he answered the phone – even in silence the two sound distinctly different. Sometimes he even answered the phone and chatted to me whilst lying on his back.
I did eventually confront him (there were plenty of other clues too) and I used the fact that I had previously called his desk phone immediately before reaching him on the mobile for the last three months as one of the reasons I believed he was having an affair at work. What I didn’t tell him was the fact that I could also read the background noise so I knew he wasn’t where he claimed to be. Two weeks later he called from work one night to say that he had missed out on getting a pizza delivered to work for dinner (something he never did) and the pizza delivery guy had given up trying to call on his desk phone to get the front door opened – but the phone never rang.
My oldest son is now 54 years old. He had been out on his own for over 20 years. He had been married for 7 years. Had worked at the same company for over 20 years and hardly ever missed a day. One day his wife called us and told us to come get our son. He was a totally different person. I ask his wife if she took him to hospital. She said she would not waste the money. He had had a stroke and it effected just about everything about him. He can walk with help but doesn’t like to get out of the house but once a month when he gets groceries.
