Portland Islamic Center Receives Threatening Anonymous Letter



What can we identify about the author of this anonymous letter sent to an Islamic Center in Maine?

A letter is a statement which reveals four things about the author:

1.  The Author's Background
2.  The Author's Experiences in Life
3.  The Author's Priority or priorities/motive in sending the letter
4.  The personality traits of the Autho

Let's look at the letter:

"Muslim

I will enjoy the sight of the blood of you and your fellow vermin running into the streets. It will be a great experience.  Come August life will never be the same again."

There is a signature or mark that follows it. 

We view both the "masking" of the identity of the author, and the specific wording chosen that reveals the four elements of the author's identity noted above.  

First:

It is addressed to a single "Muslim" and not "Muslims" and it begins the statement portion with the pronoun "I" which is very important. 

Note how closely "Muslim" is to the pronoun "I"  in the letter.  


Quran (8:39) - "And fight with them until there is no more fitna (disorder, unbelief) and religion is all for Allah" 


Psychologically, this person is "in" the statement.  

Next, note that there is no threat made.  This is very important in threat analysis:  the quality of the sentence of the threat 


Note the author gets "enjoyment" from something.  What gives him enjoyment?

"I will enjoy the sight of the blood of you and your fellow vermin running into the streets. "

Q.  What will the author enjoy?

A.  The author will enjoy the "sight" in "the streets", making the visible not only enjoyable, but visible for others to see; that is, public.  

This is consistent with terrorism. 

The point of terrorism is attention.  It is to strike fear into the hearts of the non believers and cause them to acquiesce.  This is a very successful tool and has completely altered the way the Western world travels as there are now billions of dollars and massive delays to what was once a state of travel that reached art like form. Children attending school under military protection, with soldiers lining streets has become the norm due to this ideology.  

Gallop poll yesterday showed more and more Americans are avoiding public gatherings due to fear of Islam.  

It is a powerful ideology that has successfully existed:

1.  1400 years
2.  Without a single charismatic leader
3.  Without reformation of any kind  
4.  In spite of Western influence including hijab (Islamic take over via immigration) where integration is very low.  
5.  In spite of technological advances
6.  In spite of financial prosperity including oil wealth, foreign investments, etc. 
7. In spite of educational advancements 
8. In spite of political pressure including women's rights movements and protests 
9. In spite of military defeats (Crusades, Gates of Vienna) 
10. In spite of static view of culture and progress 

The Koran tells the Islamists to note how non-Islamic lands are in "ruins" due to Allah's anger.  This is why monuments of non Islamic societies are targeted for destruction, lest the Koran be wrong.  


Quran (8:12) - "I will cast terror into the hearts of those who disbelieve. Therefore strike off their heads and strike off every fingertip of them" 

This is where in the Tripolitan War,  the US Marines began to be called "leathernecks" as the Islamic fighters attempted to decapitate them in obedience to the Koran.  

Quran (3:151) - "Soon shall We cast terror into the hearts of the Unbelievers,

Quran (2:191-193) - "And kill them wherever you find them, and turn them out from where they have turned you out. And Al-Fitnah [disbelief or unrest] is worse than killing... but if they desist, then lo! Allah is forgiving and merciful. And fight them until there is no more Fitnah [disbelief and worshipping of others along with Allah] and worship is for Allah alone. But if they cease, let there be no transgression except against Az-Zalimun(the polytheists, and wrong-doers, etc.)"

The Quran contains at least 109 verses that call Muslims to war with nonbelievers for the sake of Islamic rule. Some are quite graphic, with commands to chop off heads and fingers and kill infidels wherever they may be hiding. Muslims who do not join the fight are called 'hypocrites' and warned that Allah will send them to Hell if they do not join the slaughter. They are often targeted for their disobedience to their prophet's command and are "traitors" if they assimilate into non-Islamic (western) culture. 

 Unlike history books, including the Old Testament, these are continual marching orders and not reports of specific battles or wars.  

In some cases, Muslims claim "it is only in self defense", which is later refuted in verses of the Koran, as well as in the precedent of 1400 years of history:  wherever Islam settles, violence ensues.  

The language of terror:


1. Hyperbolic Language 

"I will enjoy the sight of the blood of you and your fellow vermin running into the streets. "

We find in Islamic threats the use of hyperbole and the references to blood flowing.  

This strongly suggests that the author is familiar with Islamic/Arabic culture.  

Recall the hyperbole of Saddam Hussein who repeatedly used references such as "the blood will flow in the streets."

This refers to the "sight" that is visibly seen by all (the point of terrorism).  

2.  Insult 

"vermin" is a derogatory term that uses as its base, animals.  This is common in the Koran and in Islamic supremacist language where Jews are "pigs", "descended from apes", "unclean dogs" whereas "vermin" not only uses animal life, but is a term associated with Nazi view of Jews.  The use of an animal suggests Islamic background, familiarity and an attempt to mask his own identity.  

The need to insult is noted while there is no actual threat.  

This next verse is limited to war. The theme of terror's point is the same:  

Quran (8:57) - "If thou comest on them in the war, deal with them so as to strike fear in those who are behind them, that haply they may remember." 

Unlike the Geneva Convention and POWs:

Quran (8:67) - "It is not for a Prophet that he should have prisoners of war until he had made a great slaughter in the land..."

This is why many have been against women in front line combat.  


Quran (9:5) - "So when the sacred months have passed away, then slay the idolaters wherever you find them, and take them captive and besiege them and lie in wait for them in every ambush, then if they repent and keep up prayer and pay the poor-rate, leave their way free to them."


The language of threats:

Threat Assessment within Statement Analysis is consistent with studies that show:

Weak sentences do not equate to violence while strong sentences do.  

"I will kill you" is an example of a strong threat. 

"if you don't do this, I will kill you" is a conditional threat. 

"You are going to die", is, in analysis, no threat. 

"Death will come to you" is also, technically in analysis, a non threat.  The passivity is noted as the subject does not make a direct threat. 

This same technique is used in suicide notes. 

Triggers

Anything can change, so should a trigger exist, that is, an event that causes a passive threat to become an active threat, it is very difficult, if not impossible, to predict. 

Humiliation is a powerful trigger that can cause one to act out his threat.  In many cases, it is the trigger of violence.  

The Orlando Islamist is an example of this.  President Obama told us, in spite of a 911 call confessing his motive, that Islam wasn't really his motive.  Main stream media joined the echo and blamed "homophobia" (the irrational fear of homosexuals), Christians and guns.  

CNN even interviewed the killer's "boyfriend" of which Statement Analysis showed "deception indicated."  We later learned that the main stream media reports were fake:

He was not homosexual;
He had no homosexual apps, secret meetings or male partner.  

We did, however, see that the FBI analyst dismissed him as a threat and said he was a victim of "Islamophobia", or the irrational fear of Islam.  This was because, the report said, he was called "towel head."

The analyst did not understand humiliation, even in name calling, from the point of Islamic supremacy.  Islamic supremacy views "sticks and stones may break my bones, but names will never hurt me" as inherently weak, and retribution as strength.  

In this anonymous letter, there is no threat to Muslims.  The "Muslim" to whom it is addressed is not told that the author (very strongly present) is going to do anything but "enjoy" that which is visible to all.  

 It will be a great experience.

Our author has not experienced Islamic violence to date.  He recognizes this fact in this wording.  

The author knows of Islamic violence, but this knowledge is likely through media reports and through possible other sources, including online and Mosque.  


Linguistic Disposition:

                 The author does not hate Muslims. 

The author makes no direct insult in spite of the word "vermin."

Note what he will enjoy: the sight of "the blood" and not "your" blood, nor Islamic or Muslims' blood.  The author's disposition is such that he cannot bring himself to personalize it. 

Note:   "the blood of you" separates "blood" from "you", which is a form of distancing language from violence.  "I will enjoy your blood..." would have increased the personal view. 

It is not the enjoyment of one's blood, but the sight.  This is consistent with Islamic terror, and not a threat against Muslims. It is the spectacle that matters for our author.   

This is a distancing language from the personal animosity that one has of the infidel.  Those who reject Mohammad and Allah are targeted with acute animosity. 

Our author does not show animosity towards his recipient, even though the "mask" used makes a weak attempt do so. The need to sound threatening (negative) reveals the positive disposition.  

Analysis Conclusion:

Our author does not make a terrorist threat.
Our author does not hate Muslims but has a positive linguistic view of them, even as he attempts to mask otherwise. 
Our author shows language consistent with Islamic teaching. 
Our author links himself, very closely, to being "Muslim."  
Our author was likely raised in Islamic culture.  

Our author is not against Muslims, and is with a political view to defend Muslims.  English may be second language.  See handwriting analysis below.  

Our author is a younger male who is without experience and is likely an outsider within his own Muslim community.  This makes him ripe for exploitation.   

It is likely "fake hate" intended to, as the author alluded to,

be "visible" for the sake of promoting "Islamophobia" as a defense against the truth of the ideology that calls for the subjugation of all. 

  This is the basic motive but there is more about the author, personally, within the letter, and his own need for recognition within his community.  The author is likely compulsive and one who is easily exploited by Islamists.  He may have already experienced humiliation and is ripe for mosque leaders to employ him for violence.  

In identifying the author, investigators should view what events are scheduled to take place in August and why this subject needs to feel inclusion.  All overseas contacts by members here should be checked, including all recent visitations.  

If the local organization is resistant to terrorism themselves, they could be targeted, though not yet, at the time of this letter.  

"August" is important to the author, himself, but as a threat, it is in the category of vagueness; something that those who intend on harm are not interested in.  

"Life will never be the same again" is passive voice, and an affirmation that there will be "life" and not "blood" from our author.    Our author's life is without meaning.  Although he is intelligent, he is "unheard" in his Islamic community.  

Investigators should closely watch those who seek publicity from this event as our author may have a close tie with one person in particular ("Muslim") as exploitation is the public or greater motive.  

What we consider mental health issues may not be considered as such in his community.  This includes not only depression but poor impulse control, which Islamic communities often consider "strength."  

Studies have shown that suicide bombers are often educated, intelligent, and of those who have become westernized and non-religious, the respect of the community and the "blessings of allah" come through this act of "redemption"; a way to "wash away the sins of the west" from their eternal souls.  

Although our author is not an imminent threat to this group, he may be a terror threat where he becomes newly interested in being devout and obedient, especially since it would bring his family honor and in some communities, money.  The traits we find in supremacists raised in domestic violence, which once it meets increased testosterone, is a lethal combination, are often found in angry sermons of imans who are recorded unknown to them.  The same imans who push peace and tolerance publicly, are recorded privately pushing war against the West.

Although much of the West (politicians, elite) deny being at war with Islam, Islam is at war with the entire non Islamic world. 

One of the attendants at the Islamic Center likely has some contact with the author.  

Handwriting Analysis

This was submitted by an expert Steve Johnson, from Veritas, an  analyst who is both a statement and handwriting analyst:


This person’s perception of reality is skewed – leaning toward the pessimistic.  You can expect his mood and temperament to fluctuate - unpredictable.  He will likely have a quick temper and be opinionated to the extent that he wont back down, and he will say too much. 
He has some brutality traits (could be verbal or physical).  He likely does not see himself fitting in well in society.  He is intelligent, however, he probably doesn’t have many accomplishments to speak of (more than likely due to the mental issues from above).  
All these traits make this person vulnerable to anyone that will give him attention.    He lacks follow through, which is strengthened by the fact that he didn’t actually make a threat to do anything.  I would also look for someone that has substance abuse issues and something in his past that he is running from.


 Some of his HW traits:
t's that look like r’s – pessimistic, lacks follow through.

Right side t crossing – quick temper, (nervous – impatient…)

Braced d stem – stubborn

Angular h – aggressive, opinionated, temper

wide open g stems – unsatisfied / unfulfilled materialistic goals (and sex life)

Erratic baseline -  his perception of reality is skewed.  His moods and temperament will change quickly.  


In any language, the more one writes, the more his natural writing style appears. With Anonymous Author letters, most of the time I will find what is closest to their instinctual writing habits towards the end of the letter.  

In this case, the last 3 words are connected writing. They are also written neater than the other words in the letter.  I think that is the author's instinctual writing.  
Whether the author's 1st language is English or Arabic, there are two words that should not be ignored.   
Inline image 1  Inline image 2

Both these words are fragmented.  The author cannot hold it together mentally.  The last word in the letter is "again."  Notice the large space between the g and the "ain." Then again at the end of the word there is a large space until the period.  This is a mental interruption/ disconnect in his thought process. We see this same disconnect in the word experience.  The scary thing about that word is the context combined with the mental dive ("xp") and then the mental elevation as shown with the "ienc" being disconnected and raised above the baseline.   The mental instability is also demonstrated in other areas of the letter such as 2nd line, the word "and."  

Psychological Warfare

Islam as an ideology is immune to reformation.  It prescribes the death penalty to anyone who criticizes it.  This is part of the "Islamic blasphemy laws."
protection against knife attacks and decapitation attempts


It is often why commentators say that Muslims are the first victims of Islam.  If they disagree with it, they are subject to violence, terrorism, threats and death.  
This is  a powerful element of psychological warfare and it is used against both Muslim and non Muslims.  No politician wants to refuse even a small request knowing that it would lead to protests and possible violence. 
This includes psychological warfare. 
In Europe, one may have their home raided, and be arrested for "hate speech"; specifically,  "inciting racial hatred."
Islam is not a race.  Even England's own citizens can be charged with "inciting racial hatred" by quoting Winston Churchill.  This is a de facto imposition of Sharia Blasphemy laws. 
Islamophobia 

It is not irrational to fear an ideology that calls for sexual molestation of women not covered up, nor is it irrational to fear and oppose that which calls for subjugation and even death in order to reach the level of "submission" or "peace."

The phrase, "Islam is a religion of peace" is, in itself, "unnecessary" language; that is, it is only necessary to claim in the lack of peace.  It is an ideology that teaches supremacy and enforces it with violence, beginning with young children watching the physical violence against their mothers.  This is a desensitization that when coupled with religious zealotry, leads to death.  

It is the only "religion" that ascribes coercion and "Islamophobia" is a form of psychological warfare meant to use western ethics against those who oppose the ideology.  Its power was seen, in earnest, beginning in 2009 when the FBI library was purged of the Koran teachings on violence and anti-terrorist manuals were purged of all Islamic reference.  This was a major victory for Islam. 

Even as Islamists call for the public stoning of homosexuals, leftist organizations, including women's groups and "LGBT" organizations  continue to march in support of Islam, claiming that opposition to Islam is "nazism" and "fascism."

How successful is this psychological warfare?

They march in support of laws that call for their own demise. 

In Sweden, police stations have been closed and new recruits cannot be found.  They fear arresting Islamists because they will be called "racists" and "Islamohpobes."

The power of the ideology should not be underestimated as the entire Western world is under its presence and threat. 

Muslims who call for peace are called "uncle Tom" by media and are targeted for violence, themselves.  Others use "tacquia", or the Islamic teaching of deception of unbelievers, to exploit western values in the ongoing war.  

Correction:  Hizrah is the doctrine of Islamic conquest by migration.  This is currently what is happening in Sweden, Germany, France and Brussels, as "war refugee" status is taken in deception.

Analysis: Derek Morris Accused of Domestic Violence

Kristen Maria has made allegations of Domestic Violence against major league baseball player,  to  Derek Norris.    Major League baseball is investigating.  I have left the statements up without analysis to allow for review.  Here is a basic conclusion for you to consider.  

Context:  

She posted her accusation  on social media. 

 About a week later, he responded to reporters.  


Here are both statements; one from social media, and the other to reporters.  

  What can we know from both statements? 



ON SUNDAY EVENING, I WAS EMOTIONAL. I HAD SPENT FOUR YEARS WORKING TO FINISH MY DEGREE WHILE RIDING A ROLLER COASTER OF LIFE. THIS MORNING, AFTER READING A RESPONSE, DENYING MY “ALLEGATIONS” OF A LIFE CHANGING MOMENT, MY EMOTIONS TURNED TO ANGER. BUT WHAT DID I EXPECT? AS THIS SITUATION IS ALL TOO COMMON IN THE WORLD, NOT JUST THE WORLD OF SPORTS, BUT THE WORLD. A PERSON WHO IS ABUSIVE DOES NOT REALIZE THEY ARE, OR THINK THEY ARE. ESPECIALLY, WHEN THE PEOPLE, FANS, FAMILY AND FRIENDS GLORIFY THE PERSON FOR A SKILL THEY SPEND THEIR LIFE PERFECTING. AS I AM WAITING TO HAVE MY FORMAL MEETING WITH THE COMMISSIONER’S OFFICE OF MAJOR LEAGUE BASEBALL, THE ONLY THING I CAN DO TO CHANNEL MY RACING HEART AND SHAKING HANDS IS TO WRITE OUT MY EXPERIENCE. I WILL NOT LET THE MEDIA OR ANY OTHER AVENUE ALTER MY EXPERIENCE. IT CANNOT BE ALTERED, MY EXPERIENCE FOREVER SHAPED ME AND NO AMOUNT OF DENIAL WILL CHANGE THE NIGHTMARES I HAVE, THE INSECURITIES I HAVE AND THE PASSION I HAVE, TO HELP THIS NOT HAPPEN TO ANYBODY ELSE. A SICKENING AREA OF THE WORLD WE LIVE IN NEEDS TO HAVE MORE LIGHT SHED ON IT. AND I HOPE TO DO THAT. I HOPE MULTIPLE WOMEN CAN READ THIS AND GET OUT OF CONTROLLING SITUATIONS, ABUSIVE SITUATIONS AND MENTALLY AND PHYSICALLY DRAINING SITUATIONS.
BEFORE I RELIVE THE NIGHT THAT CHANGED MY LIFE, I WANT TO REITERATE SOMETHING. I WAS DEEPLY IN LOVE WITH DEREK. I STILL FEEL LOVE IN MY HEART FOR HIM. I WISH I DIDN’T, BUT I DO. I STILL HAVE NIGHTS WHERE I THINK ABOUT US FIRST MEETING AND HOW I STAYED UP ALL NIGHT JUST TO TALK TO HIM ON THE PHONE. WE STARTED DATING WHEN I WAS 19, AFTER A HARD, LONG DISTANCE RELATIONSHIP, WE SEPARATED FOR ABOUT A YEAR.  WE RECONNECTED AND SHORTLY AFTER, GOT ENGAGED. DEREK WAS NOT A LOVEY DOVEY, EMOTIONAL TYPE, BUT HE WAS FUNNY. HE WAS THE MOST AUTHENTIC PERSON I’VE CAME ACROSS, NOT CHANGING HIS PERSONALITY FOR ANY PERSON, REPORTER OR FAN. HE WAS WONDERFULLY SARCASTIC AND HE WAS THE HARDEST WORKER I HAVE EVER MET. HIS CAREER WAS HIS LIFE, AFTER GAMES, HE WOULD STAY UP STUDYING FOR THE NEXT ONE. HE WAS DEDICATED, DETERMINED AND FOCUSED. HE IS AN EXTREMELY TALENTED ATHLETE AND SPENT HIS WHOLE LIFE TRAINING TO BE JUST THAT. NOBODY SHOULD EVER TAKE THAT AWAY FROM HIM. THE LAST YEAR OF OUR RELATIONSHIP WAS NOT A GOOD ONE THOUGH, A LARGER CONTRACT WAS SIGNED, MORE PRESSURE TO PERFORM WAS PLACED ON HIM AND MORE PEOPLE HAD OPINIONS ON EVERY ASPECT OF HIS LIFE. IT IS FUNNY, EVEN AFTER BEING TREATING WRONG, DISRESPECTED AND PHYSICALLY ABUSED, I STILL FIND MYSELF MAKING EXCUSES FOR HIS ACTIONS. MAYBE IF I JUST DIDN’T WAKE UP AND CHECK ON HIM THIS WOULDN’T HAVE HAPPENED. MAYBE IF I WAS A LITTLE MORE FUN AND LESS UP TIGHT I WOULD HAVE WANT TO STAY UP AND HAVE DRINKS WITH HIM. MAYBE HE DID THIS BECAUSE HE WAS SO STRESSED, HAVING AN ENORMOUS AMOUNT OF PRESSURE ON HIM. MAYBE HE LOVED ME SO MUCH, HE DIDN’T WANT ME TO SEE HIM DOING SOMETHING SO HURTFUL. MAYBE WHEN HE IS DONE WITH BASEBALL, THINGS WILL BE BETTER BECAUSE HE WILL HAVE A DIFFERENT LIFESTYLE. SO MANY “MAYBE’S” TO TRY AND CHANGE A TERRIBLE NIGHT.
ON OCTOBER 20TH, 2015 DEREK AND I WERE AT OUR HOME IN WICHITA, KS. WE HAD BEEN SITTING OUT ON OUR PATIO AND DEREK HAD BEEN DRINKING. AS IT GOT LATE I WENT TO GO TO BED AND DEREK WENT DOWNSTAIRS, AS HE WAS STILL DRINKING. I REMEMBER WAKING UP TO HIM KNEELING AT THE BED TELLING ME HOW PRETTY I WAS AND SINGING “SLOW JAMS” TO ME, BUT I COULDN’T KEEP MY EYES OPEN. I WOKE UP A LITTLE WHILE LATER. I’M NOT SURE HOW LONG IT HAD BEEN. I FELT THAT SOMETHING WAS NOT RIGHT AND I WENT DOWNSTAIRS TO FIND DEREK ON THE PHONE. HE SEEMED STARTLED AND STARTED TALKING “SPORTS” TO THIS PERSON ON THE PHONE. I TOOK THE PHONE AND HEARD A FEMALE’S VOICE STATING, “ARE YOU GOING TO TALK TO ME”. I KNEW WHO IT WAS BECAUSE I HAD SEEN TEXTS AND CAUGHT HER CALLING DEREK BEFORE. I TOOK HIS PHONE AND WALKED UP OUR STAIRS TO TRY AND GET THIS GIRL TO SPEAK TO ME. I APPROACHED OUR KITCHEN ISLAND WITH THE PHONE IN MY HAND AND DEREK APPROACHED ME FROM BEHIND AND PUT ME IN A CHOKE HOLD. AT THIS TIME, I THOUGHT HE WANTED THE PHONE. I THREW THE PHONE ONTO THE KITCHEN ISLAND AND TRIED TO GET AWAY. DEREK THEN GRABBED ME BY THE BACK OF MY HAIR TO PULL ME BACK TO HIM. HE EVENTUALLY LET GO AND AS I TURNED AROUND HE GRABBED ME BY MY UPPER ARMS SO I COULDN’T LEAVE AS HE TRIED TO DRUNKENLY EXPLAIN THAT HE WASN’T TALKING TO ANOTHER FEMALE.


AFTER THIS I TRIED TO GO TO OUR BEDROOM TO GET MY PHONE TO CALL MY MOM SO SHE COULD COME HELP ME. HE STOOD IN FRONT OF ME CORNERING ME SO I COULD NOT GET TO MY PHONE. HE KEPT TRYING TO TALK TO ME AND DENY WHAT HE WAS DOING. I EVENTUALLY COULD GRAB MY PHONE AND GET INTO OUR GUEST ROOM AND LOCK THE DOOR. I GRABBED MY SUITCASE AND CALLED MY MOM SO SHE COULD COME GET ME.
MY MOM AND HER HUSBAND SHOWED UP AND TOOK ME BACK TO THEIR HOME. DEREK CALLED MY MOM AND WAS TALKING TO HER ON THE PHONE. HE CALLED HER AGAIN ONCE WE REACHED MY MOM’S HOUSE. I DON’T KNOW DETAILS OF WHAT THEY TALKED ABOUT. I DO KNOW THAT HE WAS SO UPSET BY THE SITUATION THAT HIS PARENTS CAME OVER TO THE HOUSE TO BE WITH HIM AND TALK TO HIM.
A WEEK LATER DEREK’S BEST FRIEND WAS GETTING MARRIED AND DEREK WAS IN THE WEDDING. I WENT TO THE WEDDING, I ROAD WITH HIS PARENTS. ON THE WAY, THERE, I ASKED IF THEY HAD ANYTHING TO SAY ABOUT WHAT HAPPENED BETWEEN US. HIS DAD MADE COMMENTS SUCH AS, “I DID NOT RAISE MY SON THAT WAY.” HIS MOM MADE THE COMMENT OF, “THERE IS ALWAYS SOMETHING DEEPER GOING ON.”
                I MOVED BACK INTO OUR HOME SOME SHORT TIME AFTER. BUT THINGS WERE NOT THE SAME. I REMEMBER CALLING DEREK’S MOM BAWLING MY EYES OUT THINKING “I HAD SOMETHING WRONG WITH ME” AND THAT IS WHY DEREK AND I HAD ISSUES. BELIEVE ME, I STRUGGLED WITH ANXIETY, DEPRESSION AND AN EATING DISORDER. I DID AND STILL DO HAVE THINGS WRONG WITH ME. BUT, NOTHING WILL EVER BE SO WRONG WITH ME THAT I DESERVED TO BE TREATED IN SUCH A WAY. EVEN AFTER DEREK HAD LAID HIS HANDS ON ME IN SUCH AN AGGRESSIVE WAY, I WANTED TO DO WHATEVER I COULD TO FIX US, TO MAKE THINGS BETTER. I WAS HOLDING ON TO A LOVE AND PERSON THAT WAS NO LONGER THERE. THAT IS WHAT MAKES DOMESTIC VIOLENCE, PHYSICAL ABUSE OR MENTAL ABUSE SCARY. IT IS DONE TO US BY THE PERSON WE LOVE MOST IN THE WORLD.
                THIS IS WHAT HAPPENS TOO OFTEN. WOMEN START IN A LOVING RELATIONSHIP AND FOR WHATEVER REASON, WORK, FAMILY, FINANCES, ALCOHOL OR STRESS, THE RELATIONSHIP CHANGES. BUT, BECAUSE OF HOW WE ARE TALKED TO AND HOW WE ARE TREATED WE FEEL WE CANNOT LEAVE, WE FEEL WE CAN CHANGE THIS PERSON, OR WE CAN CHANGE OURSELVES SO THE PERSON WILL LOVE US ENOUGH TO CHANGE THEMSELVES.
                WHEN I WROTE MY POST ON SUNDAY EVENING, I FELT EMPOWERED. I WAS SO PROUD OF GETTING OUT OF A RELATIONSHIP THAT WAS NOT RIGHT FOR ME. I WAS PROUD THAT I LEFT WITH NOTHING AND COULD BUILD MY LIFE OVER. I WAS PROUD I COULD FINALLY FIND THE COURAGE TO SAY THAT I WAS HURT, DAMAGED, SCARRED AND SCARED BUT STILL FOUND A WAY TO CREATE A LIFE FOR MYSELF. ALL I WANTED TO WAS TO SHARE THAT. I WANT MORE PEOPLE TO KNOW, THEY CAN CHANGE THEIR CIRCUMSTANCES AT ANY TIME. I STILL FIND MYSELF HESITANT TO SHARE WHAT HAPPENED, BECAUSE, “IT WASN’T THAT BAD”. I DIDN’T BLEED, I DIDN’T BREAK BONES, I WAS NOT HIT, KICKED OR THROWN TO THE GROUND. I QUESTION, IF MY EXPERIENCE IS POWERFUL ENOUGH TO HELP WOMEN. IS GOING THROUGH THIS WORTH THE OUTCOME? MY INTENTION IS NOT MAKE THE MAN I LOVED, AND STILL HAVE LOVE IN MY HEART FOR, LOOK LIKE A MONSTER, BECAUSE HE ISN’T. LIFE CHEWED HIM UP AND SPIT HIM OUT JUST AS IT DID TO ME. I AM SURE IF HIS WORK, FAMILY, FINANCE AND STRESS SITUATIONS WERE DIFFERENT, THIS WOULD HAVE BEEN DIFFERENT. BUT THEY WEREN’T, AND I HAD WORDS HURT ME AND HIS TOUCH HURT ME. I WILL FOREVER HAVE THAT SHAPE WHO I AM. ALREADY, WOMEN HAVE REACHED OUT TO ME LIVING IN SIMILAR CIRCUMSTANCES, MANY MUCH MUCH WORSE THAN I COULD IMAGINE. WITH THOSE INTERACTIONS, I KNOW, THAT PUTTING MYSELF OUT THERE TO SHARE WILL HELP OTHERS TO FIND A WAY TO LEAVE, START OVER AND CREATE SOMETHING BEAUTIFUL.


Here is Derek Norris statement:

 "First, I want to be absolutely clear that abuse of any form, is completely unacceptable. Allegations regarding this issue are a very serious matter and should not be taken lightly under any circumstances. That being said, in this circumstance, the comments made by my ex-fiancee could not be further from the truth. I have NEVER been physically or emotionally abusive towards her, or anyone else in my life.I plan to go above and beyond to assist MLB with their investigation into this matter."





Analysis Conclusion:

There have been some astute comments on the blog, including one who took the time to measure the form of the statement which made it "unreliable" on its form.  

Unreliable, as a status, does not necessitate deception, but puts the analyst on alert for possible deception.  

Deception is not error.  In order to be deception, one must intend to slant, color or portray something in the element of which it is not.  It must be intentionally  or knowingly done.  

Once the form is recognized, we must then seek to learn:

a.  why it is unreliable 
b.  what parts of it may be unreliable 
c.  what does the form reveal about priority 
d.  what parts are reliable.  

A statement like this will have an emotional impact upon the reader/analyst.  

Many comments show that the reader does not like the subject.  This is why we train through such statements because even when motive is evident and illicit, we do not conclude deception by motive.  

Let's look at her statement from a distance; that is, not close up analysis.  

1.  Context:  

 First note that it is lengthy, written in all capitalization, and was not a police statement, but a statement posted on social media:  it is public.  The message is not to Derek Morris, but to the general public.  

Its capitalization makes it difficult to read and is used to gain even more attention. 

Its length is considerable which is suggestive of emotion.  

2.  Priority  

That it is written to the public, and not to Derek nor to the police, already suggests priority.  

We note where she begins her statement: 


ON SUNDAY EVENING, I WAS EMOTIONAL.


This is where the domestic violence began. 

This may sound absurd but remember:  we are not dealing with reality.  We are dealing with the subject's verbalized perception of reality.  To her, this violence began Sunday evening and with her emotion.  

Did you notice that the statement did not begin with the pronoun "I"?

This, too, is a reminder that reliability within the statement is in question, just as the form itself. 

Form: 

When a person speaks or writes from experiential memory, there is a natural psychological breakdown of an event based statement:

25% of the words will be introductory 
50% of the words will be about the event; that is, what happened. 
25% of the words will follow the event and tell us "what happened next."

For example:

"I was walking in the park on Sunday night at 10PM.  A man told me he needed $20 for bus fair to get home. I said I didn't have any money and he pushed me to the ground and kicked me in the stomach. I yelled for police and he ran off. I called 911 and they came."

Form:

The "main event" is the assault.  It is "what happened" to him.  

This is 58 words in length. 

"I was walking in the park on Sunday night at 10PM" is 11 words, or a bit above 10%   11 out of 58 is near 20% 

When the man enters:   33 words about the assault  with is near 56% 

14 words after the assault    24 %

This is to answer "What happened, next?" after he answered, "what happened?" for us.  

The balance is 20/56/24

This is close to the psychological 25/50/25 and is "reliable" on its form.  It does not mean it is truthful, but we begin noting that it is likely to be reliable.  Did you notice it began with the pronoun "I"? This means that psychologically, the subject is "present" in a very strong manner.  

The overwhelming number of deceptive statements are heavily weighted in the introduction.  

Her statement is 1539 words.  

What is its form?

She uses 740 words before she gets to the assault.  

This is 48% introduction.  This is unreliable on its form and it is consistent with many deceptive statements.  

Next:  the assault is the "event" of the statement.  It is not the priority of the statement.  This is what throws off readers.  

The assault is 191 words.  This is only 12% of her words. 

608 after come after. 

The priority of this public post is not Domestic Violence. 

With only 12% of her words dedicated to what happened, we must now do two things:

1.  Analyze the words of the alleged assault to see if she is truthful or deceptive

2.  Learn why the event (D/V) is such a minor part of her account .


1.  The Alleged Assault:


I TOOK HIS PHONE AND WALKED UP OUR STAIRS TO TRY AND GET THIS GIRL TO SPEAK TO ME. 

I APPROACHED OUR KITCHEN ISLAND WITH THE PHONE IN MY HAND AND DEREK APPROACHED ME FROM BEHIND AND PUT ME IN A CHOKE HOLD. AT THIS TIME, I THOUGHT HE WANTED THE PHONE. I THREW THE PHONE ONTO THE KITCHEN ISLAND AND TRIED TO GET AWAY. DEREK THEN GRABBED ME BY THE BACK OF MY HAIR TO PULL ME BACK TO HIM. HE EVENTUALLY LET GO AND AS I TURNED AROUND HE GRABBED ME BY MY UPPER ARMS SO I COULDN’T LEAVE AS HE TRIED TO DRUNKENLY EXPLAIN THAT HE WASN’T TALKING TO ANOTHER FEMALE.



There are portions here that are reliable.  Note the past tense verbs and the appropriate pronoun usage.  

For example:  
The choke hold is reliable. 
Her throwing of the phone is reliable. 
Him grabbing her by the back of the hair is also reliable. 

However, the sensitivity indicators tell us that there is more here than what she is reporting.  

This is consistent with the form of the statement:  Unreliable. 

Note "approached" is not "grabbed" but the action just prior to.  This is an area of missing information.  

She has a need to explain "why" (in blue) he did certain things.  This is very sensitive information.  

The need to explain why something was done, in an open statement that reports an event must be explored for missing information. 

It took her  a great deal of time to get to the statement which reduces its reliability on the whole. 

She reliably reports what he did, while withholding information of what she did.  Note both "approached" and "eventually" share the element of time.  This is where the brain is considering what took place over this elapsing period of time but does not want to report it. 

Note also the editorializing of the event with, in the midst of an assault, she reports what he was thinking.  

Derek Morris' denial is unreliable.  

What does this tell us?

1.  She is telling the truth about him assaulting her. 
2.  She is withholding information about what she did to him. 
3.  Her motive is exploitation through publicity.  

What do we know about her?

She is intelligent and she is manipulative. 

A deeper analysis of the wording suggests a narcissistic and self absorbed manipulator, including her triangulation with his family, and the appeal to other women.  She seeks to exploit the situation while portraying herself as magnanimous in her generous treatment of him.  

Readers struggled with this because her motive and personality are overwhelmingly stated.   The gratuitous appeal to women as victims and herself as dedicated to helping them also impacts us. 

The "screaming" capitalization as well as the context and length reveal a deceptive and conniving manipulator who is seeking to cash in on his fame.  

She does a disservice to victims of Domestic Violence in this "Gloria Allred" like publicity stunt, as she seeks to gain notoriety at his expense.  

She is "front and center" of the statement, proud of herself and using emotional manipulation to target specific readers.  Follow her pronouns to see emphasis.  

The language she uses regarding personal impact does not appear to be truthful either.  She writes as if this is the best thing that could have ever happened to her.  This, too, is insulting to victims.  

Morris put his hands on her in anger.  For this, he is very likely to suffer consequences to his career.  

It is very likely that she, too, put her hands on him.  She is very likely to profit from this.  

I and other analysts do pro bono work for victims of Domestic Violence.  It is cases like this in which cynicism can enter.  

Cynicism harms victims. 

There is a reason why so few words were used to describe the assault and why it took her so long to get there. 

Derek Morris' account of what happened may fill in the blanks.
