This is an excerpt from a text the perpetrator sent to me after he destroyed my home.

Cycle of abuse

Whenever I ran from the perpetrators violence he would accuse me of being a racist and immediate instill guilt in me if I went to the police. His lawyer friend referred to me as a "police caller" and "the type to call police" as I pressed charges the first time I was punched in the head multiple times by the perpetrator. The lawyer is known to be anti-police. A cursory search of "2 'Bronx Defenders' Resign Following Anti-Police Music Video" will yield the results. This lawyer perpetuates violence against women and misogyny. He takes no actions to actually find real help for the perpetrator, only legal assistance when the perpetrator commits crimes. He takes zero actions to create safe spaces for victims of violence when the police are not an option. White Saviorism
