She Has a Book…

“…(but it is) a process, rather than a single incident, and yet our entire criminal justice system is set up to address incidents, not processes.”

The chaos did not matter though. Like most smart, independent women, we didn’t know the legal system. We didn’t think in terms of hard evidence or timely reporting or 911 calls. We weren’t careful with our messaging in attempt to try to incriminate. A smart, independent woman seeks distance and protection, not confrontation via police officers. She blocks phone numbers, she runs away, she tries to live her best life and seeks help when absolutely necessary.
