John Atkins is a nut job on the loose. Pete Schwatzkopf….deal with your guy, YOU WANTED HIM! Heather Atkins gets PFA. Let’s talk about PFA’s. Mine own daughter got one a week ago. I am now an expert.
I know that a lot of commenters to my posts are either John Atkins hyenas or even John himself. John does not like me, not that he knows me all that well, because I was the one who made the proposal, back in the early 2000’s, that he be kicked out of the Republican party in Delaware. Burris was the editor here at the time and he was the Chair of the Sussex GOP that led the charge to get Atkins out and replaced by marble-head but likeable Greg Hastings.
Then Atkins called up our current editor and future Mayor of Delaware on a post of mine where I’d said Atkins had been charged with spouse abuse but, heh, it only turned out to be “offensive touching”. I took my entire post down though David Anderson only wanted me to take out that bit about Atkins mistreating his wife, which we know now he does do. I told David at the time that I had no doubt that Atkins would do it again so I took the whole damn post down. I’d like to thank John Atkins, and all his baying sycophants, for giving me that second chance.
Of course, what with John Atkins being such a mild-mannered sort, he also got into a couple of more flaps since he was kicked out of the Republican party, one involving giving a Delaware State Cop a bunch of crap for giving him (Atkins) a ticket for speeding when dear Lord the man was going to an emergency legislative session in Dover and speed was of the essence!
Let’s not forget Atkins’ tale of the burning tires and Sussex penitentiary inmates clearing the man’s lot and lookit, I know the Democrats don’t get it but I am doing Schwartzkopf a favor: PETE…GET THIS GUY OUTTA THERE ALREADY!
Now let’s discuss PFA’s. The acronym stands for “Protection From Abuse” and by me they are great things. Understand that I don’t think that anyone’s rights, not even those of a pathetic wife-abuser, should be taken away. And so sweet John will have his chance to defend himself on 6/13/14. The current PFA is considered an emergency action and, indeed, my own daughter got a PFA this past Memorial Day and that hearing is scheduled for tomorrow.
First, even if friendly guys like John Atkins and my own son-in-law, are completely in the right while saddled with dastardly wives who lie about them all over the place, it could never hurt anything to separate the warring parties via the emergency PFA.
With the time between the emergency PFA and the hearing, all parties have a chance to speak with attorneys.
My daughter is seeking a PFA that will last a year and while she wants her daughter (my granddaughter) to visit her father, she is requesting supervised visits.
John…..man you had what? 17 shot guns?
And such a nice guy you are, telling the world you took care of your sons while Heather went gallivanting around the globe. The woman HAD to leave because YOU wouldn’t!
Also, let’s talk about the word ABUSE for a moment. Just because Heather, nor my daughter, had their head hacked off by a machete, that doesn’t mean their spouses aren’t mistreating, yea, ABUSING them.
Forced sex, threats to commit suicide, constant phone calls, sullen silent treatments, long screaming sessions…..these are ALL forms of abuse. Families of the poor woman seeking relief from her turmoil behind closed doors should not think that if the woman’s not sporting bruises she must be exaggerating about abuse.
Atkins’ is a Narcissist, I’m no psychologist but this man needs help. PETE….you’re not helping this guy, or his family, by keeping him around! Do the state of Delaware a favor and get this abusive man out of the legislature.
Finally, when a person embarks on a road of abuse the actions often get worse, they escalate with each abuse they get away with. The abuse begins and the perpetrator gets away with it. Then the abuse escalates. Is there any reason we should wait until the victim is DEAD, killed by, say, one of 17 shotguns, before we acknowledge obviously aggressive behavior? My own daughter’s husband flipped a big knife casually as he demanded she give him her prescription drugs.
Abuse doesn’t always leave marks but it is abuse.
PETE! Get the guy outta there.
We shall see what good ole Schwartzkopf does.
I do not respond to comments on my posts. I certainly have no problem with such commentary and, indeed, encourage it. But I’ve written my piece and I don’t want to argue it further.
