Guess what! The cops did not arrest me nor did they detain me or place me in handcuffs which may have evoked a panic attack. They reissued the citation for aggravated menacing and told me to show up in court in two weeks! I expected to go to jail for at least an hour. Not really. As I stated previously, while I endure this fact-finding process conducted by both the Equal Employment Opportunity Commission (EEOC) and the Ohio Civil Rights Commission (OCRC), the agencies cannot have me jailed for anything. And if either agency becomes aware that I might commit a crime, the agency must terminate the fact-finding process. With that being said, I will not knowingly commit a crime. However, I intend to file an injunction to terminate this process.
As I drove seven hours back home, I stewed on this whole process. Imagine the agencies soliciting and compelling your friends, loved-ones and neighbors to torment you. At times I don’t believe my family knew what was all involved. Perhaps they were told that if they did not cooperate, I would lose my case. I’m here to tell you I’m a winner! I’m claiming it.
After enduring the unreasonable and retaliatory withholding of my child support for six months more than a decade ago, I ended up losing my home. The state of Ohio–my former employer–caused real harm. And they used my ex to do it. You see: while he worked for the city of Newburgh, the New York Child Support Enforcement Agency deducted his obligation from his check. However, the state of Ohio just withheld it for more than six months until I wrote and called everyone screaming bloody murder. To top it off, my ex was not the least bit disturbed that I wasn’t receiving my checks in order to assist in taking care of his daughter. He was in on the whole thing. I suppose he and the state of Ohio were hoping to paint me as an unfit parent. Every month he’d say they were taking it out of his check, and he’d actually chuckle about it. That’s what the process does: laughs at you in the hopes of provoking you. Just another way of continuously retaliating against me.
If you’re missing child support, and you know you’ve filed a workplace violation charge with the EEOC, OCRC and/or other Fair Employment Practices Agencies (FEPAs), beware of these guys. They will try driving you crazy. You’ll feel the torment in the pit of your stomach. It will manifest into major depression, anxiety and acute stress. I’m surprised I’m still living and that I hadn’t had a heart-attack by now. But I’m a survivor. You must reinforce that fact within yourself and beat the FEPAs at all costs. They don’t want you to share your stories, your experiences. But I’m telling la dee da dee every fucking body! I’m sounding the alarm on retaliation, continuous retaliation, hostile work environments and intimidation and sexual harassment.
