What Am I To Think?

I sent the email below to Maywood Police Chieff Talley and Maywood Mayor Edwenna Perkins because I sincerely believe all that screaming and hollering being done by the family stalking me has a direct affect on some of the violence and shootings being don in Chicago and here in Maywood. (I have gone on record as saying that I believe there is a lot of interaction between Black folks living in Maywood and Chicago.  And they’ve heard all about what’s going on here.  Which only adds to their disrespect for the Police.)

I think allowing the family stalking me to continue screaming obscenities the way they are doing, not only shows disrespect for me, but also of The Law, The Maywood Community as a whole, and also of Black women.

I also think that it’s disrespectful of the LGBT community.  Because, while I’m not prejudice against Gay and Lesbian individuals, I do think a 40 year long stalking siege is a bit of an overkill for a simple, polite answer of, “No.  I don’t want to have sex with you.  Because, I’m not gay.”  

I will say this though.  She definitely made sure I didn’t get it from anyone else.  That she did very well, indeed.

Dear Chief Talley,
I am earnestly asking that, if possible, you and Mayor Perkins try and keep the family stalking me from doing all that screaming and hollering for another week.
As I predicted, stopping them from screaming 24/7/365 has affected Chicago’s shootings.    They’ve been quiet for a week and a half and the shootings have dropped from 58 shootings over the weekend, down to 33.
And, yes, I know how ridiculous you think that sounds.  But, consider when Trump was telling America that the COVID-19 Virus over in Wuhan, China would not affect us here in America.  And yet it did.
The same holds true of that family’s shameful disrespect for the Law and this Village.   And you and I both know how armed the people on 11th are because they are afraid the Police won’t come and help them, because you’re NOT helping me.  And that fear has spread to other places, cities, towns, and communities.
I really think it needs to STOP.   It’s not worth the price.

How The Police Conduct Their Business

I just finished listening to Chicago Mayor Lori Lightfoot announce changes in how the Chicago Police will conduct their business in the future.

As a Black woman who has been stalked, harassed, physically and financially attacked for over thirty years while the Maywood Police stood by did absolutely nothing, I implore Illinois State Representative Emanuel ‘Chris’ Welch, Illinois State Senator Kimberly Lightford, Illinois Congressman Danny K. Davis, Illinois Senator Dick Durbin to take an in-depth look at how the Maywood Police conduct their business.

The Maywood Police have screwed up my stalking case so bad that even they are too scared of being sued to do anything about all the screaming and harassment I have to live with on a daily basis.

And they should be.  After all, it should not have taken them over thirty years to investigate my claims of being stalked.  And they absolutely should not be blaming me for their screw-up.

And the way they did their so-called ‘investigation’ was absolutely abhorrent.

I had gone into the Maywood Police Department over twenty times trying to make a complaint of being stalked before I realized I was wasting my time.

And what did these bright geniuses do?  They called my step-mother, whom I did not live with, and asked her whether or not she thought I was being stalked.

Worse yet, they never came back and discussed her answer with me.

That was the sum total of their investigation.

After that, the stalking got even worse.  To the point that I actually had to leave the state of Illinois.

And in 1989, after the stalkers found me living in Louisiana and started stalking me to work, on a daily basis, again.  Needless to say, I lost my job because of the stalking.

When I returned to Maywood in 1991, I immediately went back to the Maywood Police and tried in vain to get them to do something about the stalkers.  That was in 1991 and the stalking is still going on.

It has gotten to the point that I honestly believe that the stalkers are paying the Police and the Village to ignore my claims of being stalked.

That’s the only reason I can figure that the Maywood Police would allow this family to continue carrying on in the streets the way they do.   Money and Sex.

And No!  I don’t believe that crap about them trying to get me to see a psychiatrist.   What for?

I don’t know this family and have never had any interaction with them.  But they’re watching me 24/7/365.

I’m a retired 67 years old woman, living on Social Security, who’s not suicidal.  I don’t own a gun.  I’ve never hurt anyone.  I’m not having an affair with anyone.  I don’t have any credit card debt.  I pay my own rent, utility bills, and manage to keep food on my table.  And because of the stalking, I’ve always lived alone and I’m very comfortable with that now.  Plus, I’m becoming a pretty good writer. 

The Maywood Police Department and the Village of Maywood, Illinois definitely needs some looking into as does the family stalking me. Someone needs to help the Maywood Police find out why.

This May Is National Mental Health Month

Besides, our President, I think a lot of Americans could use a mental health check-up.  Case in point, all those white Michiganders rallying outside their State Capitol Building carrying guns and waiving Nazi flags as a way of protesting the Stay At Home Orders. Continue reading

The One Question No One Asks Me

I am going to write about something that no one ever asks me.   And that’s courage.

Where did the courage to set foot out the door, once you knew you were being stalked, come from? Continue reading
