Today is the day I realized I must return to Cincinnati, Ohio and dare the police to arrest me for aggravated menacing. Why am I facing this charge? The Ohio Civil Rights Commission (OCRC) retaliated against me for telling anyone who’d listen–including Ohio U.S. Senators Sherrod Brown and Rob Portman and Ohio Assemblywoman Margaret Condit–that its agents and supervisors filed that bogus charge against me as retaliation for not keeping the endless fact-finding investigation a secret.
First, let me explain: I cannot be arrested. Why can’t I be arrested? No one can go to jail for participating in a workplace violation charge, and if the fair employment practices agency (FEPA) believes you are about to commit a crime, they must stop the fact finding investigation.
Now, I could have probably ended this back in 2009 if I’d told someone I was going to rob a bank, and the OCRC, EEOC and other FEPAs believed I intended to do just that, but I couldn’t bring myself to buy a fake gun, and I’m not that kind of person. I didn’t know that in 2009. I didn’t know I could end a fact-finding investigative process by making them believe I intended to commit a crime, so I endured the stalking. I know. I know. Crazies always say the government is watching them. In this case, it’s true. The OCRC and EEOC always have eyes on me. I’m so accustomed to it that I ignore it now.
But ignoring it was not always the case. So, let’s get this out of the way. After being surveillanced (I’m making this word a verb) for months, I holed up in my apartment and didn’t leave it for a week at a time, only leaving to grocery shop and rent movies from Blockbuster. I watched movies and lived off my disability even though it wasn’t enough. But I couldn’t return to Mercy HealthPlex; I wasn’t strong enough, and the employer and its employees had traumatized me. The fact-finding process had traumatized me.
Imagine never inviting your coworkers over to your home, but they knew exactly how your bedroom was decorated and what you kept on your nightstand at any given time. I found myself checking for hidden cameras! I’ll speak more on that later. In fact, in my forthcoming book, How to Survive the EEOC and other Fair Employment Practices Agencies, I’ll tell you the top five (5) things you should beware.
But getting back to what happened today. I applied for a new apartment and was denied an apartment because of that bogus aggravating menacing charge, which is a misdemeanor. This is continuous retaliation on the part of the OCRC, EEOC, FEPAs, state of Ohio and Mercy HealthPlex. Whew! How does one fight all of that? One agency at a time. And by blogging. Remember: My upcoming book will help you avoid the pitfalls and trauma of enduring a fact-finding investigation. In fact, if you are reading this post, you’re already traumatized. Here is where I’ll leave you for today. Until tomorrow . . .
