|This website has remained
in existence in one form or another for seven years. Its
existence has created in me a fight that simply will not die. I
watched as several laws came into existence created for the safety of
our daughters and sons. The law that touches my heart is little
Samatha Reid. She was offered a drink of Mountain Dew, spiked
with GHB. When she commented on its salty taste, she was
rebuffed. After all, it was just Mountain Dew. When she
went into convulsions, the boys put her into the bathroom and cleaned
the rug. Something that one does with a naughty dog or cat.
The boys felt it more important to care for the soiled rug than to care
for a very sick girl gives me goose bumps. She died. Her
mother has a website in her name. There is also the  passed in
. She should never have died.
We have the  in Los Angeles who may have been drink-spiked with GHB
also. Her fatal flaw may have been the simple act of running out
of gas and locking her doors while she waited in her car for her
friends to arrive. Her friends came but were unsuccessful at
opening the doors and they called 911. When the police arrived,
they pulled the friends from the car and put  bullets into it.
Later they claimed the unconscious woman inside was holding a gun.
One young man who only wanted to dance away the night took too many
tabs (Ecstacy) and fell down onto the dance floor. The others at
the rave merely shoved his body to the side so they could continue to
dance. His bride-to-be was waiting for him at her home.
My family feel that I am out-of-line with this website. I say,
"Look around. It isn't just me. I am only one of many who
have been drink-spiked and treated like a criminal. I am only one
whose record has been tarnished with a WIC5150 application. I am
only one. Those who assaulted me are running free to do this over
and over again. We must ask why that is. Is it because the
police have no proof? That's part of it but I believe there is
something else as well. We have so many of these crimes that it
is easier to white wash them and take on only those crimes that can be
easily proven or that have been solved and the only act needed is to
walk in and pick up the criminal while the cameras run."
But then the act itself is so heinous that to then be chastised,
ridiculed and humiliated further if not by the court system, then the
media, is too much for most people. After all, look how many
years have men kept quiet before they joined forces and came forward
about the priests.
I believe that the best way to deal with this problem is first to
return to the victim that self-pride, that reputation, that honor lost
to degradation on the event of the assault. I believe all
victims should be viewed as Innocent. Once each individual has
regained or is allowed to continue maintaining their own dignities,
then we can talk about being taken seriously when we complain to the
police, adult, family member or others for help against these heinous
acts purpetrated upon us.
This website is my way of giving something positive back into society
from a very heinous happening. I'm wishing you, the reader, well
and am sending support in whatever endeavor is yours.
