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.

US Dep. Marshal Michael Rivera Sentenced



As the trial of Bill Cosby awaits a verdict, it is a good reminder for Sex Crimes units to have training specific to sexual abuse victims.  

In some cases of adult victims of childhood sexual abuse, the language can mirror deception due to the powerful disassociation that can take place.  

In the Cosby case, some of his victims have been analyzed here.  

See Barbara Bowman's statement here for more understanding into the language of victims.  



AP:  Michael Rivera, 30, was convicted in February of misdemeanors that included surreptitious intrusion and creating and attempting to create sexually expressive images. He was found not guilty of more serious felony charges.
Rivera was sentenced to three years  and ordered to get sex offender treatment while in prison.

He spoke out on his own behalf.

Does he take responsibility for his actions?

This has been a theme of late.  

The words we state are not reality, but a verbalized perception of reality.  

Someone can take responsibility for his own actions, while another can state that he is taking responsibility for his own actions.  

His words are important and reveal a commonly used technique within human nature:  


“I violated a norm of our society, but I am not that same person. I understand there may be people here who have ill feelings towards me, but above all, I ask for the forgiveness of the victims. I am not the same person that I was.”


Investigators allege Rivera secretly recorded girls and young women as they tried on clothes in dressing rooms from the summer of 2015 to 2016. He was caught peeping on a 15-year-old girl, who saw his phone peering beneath her fitting room door at a Target store.

Authorities who searched his computer and electronic devices determined he took similar actions at several other Bismarck stores. He was sentenced in May in federal court to seven years in prison on child pornography charges, and he’ll serve the federal sentence first.

Two young women who were peeped on said at the hearing that they now often feel uncomfortable when a man is looking at them and fear going into dressing rooms.

I don’t know how to go into a dressing room again without feeling violated,” one of the minor victims said.

The girls said they felt cheated because Rivera was acquitted on 11 felony counts that corresponded to his recording of minors.


“I violated a norm of our society, but I am not that same person. I understand there may be people here who have ill feelings towards me, but above all, I ask for the forgiveness of the victims. I am not the same person that I was.”

The claim of being a different person has now become popular in our society, even to the point of over riding truth.  The girls who felt cheated may have felt further negative emotion when hearing him tell them that it was not him but a different person.  

The identification is based upon one's own testimony.  This, itself, has turned the world of psych evaluations upside down, as a psychological diagnosis was generally based upon  more than  self reporting.  

Consider the context of the statement, including child pornography. 

Child pornography is evidence of crimes already committed. 

                  Child Pornography and Voyeurism 

The subject gains sexual gratification from seeing children sexually abused. 

The subject gains sexual gratification from exploiting girls and women, in secret. 

Note the impact upon the children is acute and difficult to quantify. 

What shows up in the language of an adult who was victimized in childhood?

What might they experience?

There is a pattern. 

The child may or may not show outward signs.  Child protective caseworkers are generally highly trained in conducting legally sound interviewing.  

Male and Female victims generally react differently and the language reflects this reality.  

 Some do not show significant outwards signs until adolescence.  This is often a precarious time where the victim embarks upon a pattern of  self destruction.  It is of no assistance when popular media, including music, uses sexually explicit lyrics, often degrading to females in general, that the victim is exposed to during adolescence, when music has a particularly strong impact.    Promiscuity, substance abuse, self harm, and suicide may suddenly arise and seemingly without warning. 

Those who survive this period often show signs of recovery including going to college and working successfully in a career. 

The second period of possible crisis is when the adult female victim has a child.  The language often reflects a hyper-vigilance than can be a hinderance to the child's own growth as mother becomes over protective.  


Then there is a third period of crisis that often occurs when the victim's natural hormonal health begins to decline, including at menopause.  This, too, is reflected in the language where we often see descriptive words that suggest depression, including "tired" as well as reactions to such things as holidays suddenly triggering new and surprising emotions.  

The natural strength and vigor of youth appears to be outrun by the abuse.    

The subject, sometimes in her 40's, may refer to herself while growing up (in recall) as a "child" which such statements as,

"When I was a child, I learned..."  This is especially note worthy in statements that appear unnecessary, such as, "when I was growing up, I learned..."

 Some use this word where "little girl" or "kid", or even "while growing up" is used.  Once explored for possible abuse, there is about an 80% likelihood of the abuse being sexual.  

The term comes from common use of "child molester" and "child pornography" as we don't say "kid molester" and "kid pornography."

The impact of the abuse also often surfaces later in life with compromised immune systems, where the victim struggles to overcome illnesses.  The often decried "chronic fatigue syndrome", (which changes names and descriptions,) is used when doctors do not find anything wrong in the general testing.  This further isolates the victim. 


Michael Rivera used distancing language in the most complete way. 

It was not him.  

It was a different person. 

This is no comfort to victims and recidivism is likely.  

He sought to please himself at the expense of others, including children as well as the victims of his voyerism.  At its core, selfishness is his priority.  

This is why he added about others having negative feelings towards him. 

He asked for forgiveness.  

But look at his statement again:


“I violated a norm of our society, but I am not that same person. I understand there may be people here who have ill feelings towards me, but above all, I ask for the forgiveness of the victims. I am not the same person that I was.”


He expresses concern, but not for his victims, but for himself.  He used his statement to acknowledge people have negative feelings towards...him.  

He asks for forgiveness, but offers no empathy for those he harmed.  

Yet, why should he ask for forgiveness?

The other person is the one who should be asking.  His repetition of the same shows that at his core, his concern is for him and him only.  

His sexual gratification came at the expense and even deadly cost, to his victims. 

Human sexuality was designed for the procreation of mankind, but done in a mutually complementary manner, both giving and receiving pleasure.  

The perversion of such is to take and then to immediately and completely distance himself from it.  It is to take, and be unconcerned about the consequences to others. 

Consider how victims would feel when they hear him say, "it wasn't me."  

To become unnaturally sexually aroused, it is very likely that Rivera was abused in childhood.  

Yet, he had a choice whether to act upon it, or not; he was not under compulsion.  

This is why, particularly in past cultures, general self discipline was a priority for parents to instill within their children.  The ability to deny oneself, even in small ways, becomes a personality trait later in life.  Even seemingly arbitrary ways, teaching a child personal control, whether in sports, or eating habits, or any other way, strengthens the ability to control oneself later in life.  

Those who demand and receive instant gratification in childhood will struggle to turn this pattern around in life.  

Should that demand for gratification be illicit, within itself, it will pose a danger to society.  




Derek Norris 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.  

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."

Bree Nece Statement on Anti Trump Attack

real bruises

Is this account truthful?

Here is  basic analysis to get to the conclusion of learning if Bree Nece has told the truth about being a victim of a political assault.  




I.  The Statement 
II. The Statement with Emphasis and Analysis
III. the Conclusion of the Matter 

My sister and i had such an amazing night at the New Kids on the Block concert in Seattle. Unfortunately the night ended bad. This is the work of a " man". After leaving the concert we were walking toward our hotel room. We were approached by 2 men and a woman. It was ok at first until the woman asked where we were from. She then said " Well i hope you didn't vote for Trump" when i admitted that i had, she then called us a racist.. The two men with her verbally attacked us as well. She physically approached me and a fight ensued. One of the 'men' was on top of me punching as my sister watched helplessly. As she tried to pull him off me, the other " man" punched her in the face. He stood up and kicked me in the face and ribs. Ive never in my life had so much rage in trying to protect my little sister. I then was the helpless one.. I conceal and carry , but i didn't this night because concert arenas don't allow guns. The "man" came back for more, slammed me on the concrete and drug me by my hair across the sidewalk..There were 3 witnesses and the two " men" were takin to jail and released the next day. This is a growing problem in our country with political differences that are causing violence perpetrated by our media. It has caused these fringe groups like "Antifa" and other extreme leftist groups to start preying on us. I stood up. I fought. And I did not back down. I voted for Trump. And I am damn proud of it!!! I will take these cowards to court even if it takes a lifetime. . I love you sister so much.Gina Nino

II. The Statement With Analysis 

My sister and i had such an amazing night at the New Kids on the Block concert in Seattle. 

This is where the subject began her account.  She wants us to know she was not alone, the specific performing act and the location.  Note the lower case "i" used.  

She tells us that it was "an amazing" night.  

This is not where we expect an unprovoked hate crime to begin.  This is Narrative Building language, such as police commonly call "story telling."

Remember:  we presuppose that the subject is truthful and that her words will guide us.  In this sense, we trust the language to guide us to what happened.  

"New Kids on the Block" is very important to her.  This  now alerts us to:

a.  possible attention seeking
b.  seeking favorable response from any fans of this particular band (persuasion).  Seeking to curry favor with some (including those who voted for Donald Trump) tells us that the subject has a need to seek approval. 
c.  possible personality trait of manipulation.  This is something we find in substance abuse, as well as other personality traits that use manipulation.  



Unfortunately the night ended bad. 

An attack is not "unfortunate" in the language of trauma.  "Unfortunate" minimizes the setting for us before we get to what happened. 

Remember, we are letting her words guide us. 

In the flow of information she now tells us of chronology.  The "amazing night" is now shown to have "ended bad" (sic).  This does not negate the amazing night. 

In an unprovoked hate crime attack, the incident is unexpected, which increases trauma, its impact, and its visibility through language.  

We can continue to believe her that she and her sister had an amazing night and it is only the end of it which was bad.  

This is not consistent with trauma.  Trauma results from unknown and unexpected (no time to prepare).  

We must now be alert that this was possibly not an entirely unexpected event.  (surprise element).  For example, in a fight, combatants square off and have an expectation of both being assaulted and assaulting another.  

In an attack, there is not anticipation of assault in the moment before the attack. 


This is the work of a " man". 

The attack is now called a "work", which suggests the processing of events.  It is conclusory language. 
Note also rule 6b of quotes as she assigns a different meaning to the word "man" than normally understood. 

This is sometimes used to insult the manhood of a male who fights a woman. 

It is not something we expect to see in an attack.  

In the assigning of a different meaning of "man", the subject shows disrespect for him.  

In a totally unexpected attack, there is no concern with insult, nor is there an expectation that the assailant will have gentleman qualities, or rules by which he is governed.  This use of "man" shows that the man's behavior is not considered appropriate by the victim. 

This, itself, in an attack, is both unexpected and unnecessary.  

In statement analysis, unnecessary words are vitally important to the analysis.  It is additional information that the subject feels important to tell us.  

When a person attacks another, the attacker's qualities are not in question nor in need of address: he is an attacker and this, alone, tells his character.  

The she feels it necessary to visit his characteristics tells us that there was interaction between them that she is not disclosing but that she expected better behavior from him. 

This is not consistent with an unknown attacker. 


After leaving the concert we were walking toward our hotel room. We were approached by 2 men and a woman. 

Here the pace is slowed down.  Instead of saying, "we were attacked", the subject is setting the stage, which is Narrative Building (or story telling).  

"Approached" continues to slow down the pace as does their "walking" toward their hotel room. 

She felt it necessary to tell us in which direction she was headed.  

This unnecessary information is only unnecessary to us; but not to her. 

Therefore, we may now wonder if the subject intended on going somewhere other than her hotel room. 


It was ok at first until the woman asked where we were from. 

Here with the pace slowed, we have interaction, which affirms the analysis from above.  

The element addressed here is time.  She does not tell us how much time elapsed nor what was "okay" at first.  This is missing information.  


She then said " Well i hope you didn't vote for Trump" when i admitted that i had, she then called us racist.. 

"then" speaks to the passing of time, with "well" showing a pause.  There was much more discussed here that she is not telling us.  

Note "admitted" is to show not only reluctance, but more processing of time within conversation.  

Note the inconsistency within the pronoun.  She "admitted" that she, herself, voted for Trump, but then she called "us", (more than one) "a" racist. 

The article and the pronoun are inconsistent.  This is something we flag for deception.  

The two men with her verbally attacked us as well. 

Being called "racist" is considered by her a verbal attack. Note  "as well" indicates that something brought the two men into the conversation.  

She physically approached me and a fight ensued.

Note that before, they "approached" but here, she "physically" approached.  This is a change of language.  

Note that "and a fight ensued" is to employ passivity in speech.  This is an indication that she is deliberately concealing who instituted the fight. 

We believe her. 

We now know that she was not attacked but she got into a fight.  By deliberately avoiding telling us who caused the fight, along with the other deceptive indicators, we may now conclude that our subject has a reason why she does not want to tell us who started the fight.  

It is a fight and not a hate attack.  


 One of the 'men' was on top of me punching as my sister watched helplessly. As she tried to pull him off me, the other " man" punched her in the face. 

She continues to classify the 'men' (wrong quotation marks) which tells us she expected better from them. 

This is not expected in an attack (it is unnecessary) but it is not needed in a "fight" unless she had expected the male (s) to stay out of her fight with the woman.  

Note the sister as "helpless" yet "tried" to pull him off. 

It would not surprise me to learn that the man tried to intervene in the fight between the subject and the woman who "physically" approached her.  

Her need to insult suggests this.  

Her repetition of insult affirms it. 


He stood up and kicked me in the face and ribs. 

That he "stood up" tells us that she may have had him on the ground. 

The structure of this sentence is reliable.  He likely kicked her in the face and ribs.  


Ive never in my life had so much rage in trying to protect my little sister. 

Here we have editorializing of her emotions.  


I then was the helpless one.. I conceal and carry , but i didn't this night because concert arenas don't allow guns.

Note here the pronoun "I" 


 The "man" came back for more, 

This phrase will warrant amplification from the subject.  From the context, we must now wonder if the man had separated them, was attacked again by our subject, moved away from her, but that she taunted him to come "back for more", or did something aggressive (like "physically approach" him) to cause this.  




slammed me on the concrete and drug me by my hair across the sidewalk..There were 3 witnesses and the two " men" were takin to jail and released the next day. 


The structure here suggests reliability.  There is likely a police report filed.  This does not mean she is truthful.  

Next the great night with only a bad portion at the end, turns to attention seeking behavior:  

This is a growing problem in our country with political differences that are causing violence perpetrated by our media. It has caused these fringe groups like "Antifa" and other extreme leftist groups to start preying on us. 

This is to use a deflection, telling us her need to deflect which affirms her as the aggressor.  

Antifa is a dangerous violent movement where logic is voided and moral narcissism used to fuel assaults.  

It is unrelated to our subject's account.  



I stood up. I fought. And I did not back down. I voted for Trump. And I am damn proud of it!!!

This is inconsistent with her "admitting" earlier.  It does, however, further affirm the analysis of her instigating and keeping the fight going. 

 I will take these cowards to court even if it takes a lifetime. . 

This sentence suggests affirmation about her persistence in having him come "back for more."  


I love you sister so much.Gina Nino

Analysis conclusion:   Deception Indicated

The subject was not a victim of a hate crime, that is, a politically motivated assault.  She is deceptively withholding important facts of the account of what happened.  

It was not an assault. 

The subject got into a fight and likely the instigator.  

Who is responsible for starting a fight?  It is not always the one who throws the first punch but he (or she) who requires the first punch be thrown.  

There may have been elements of politics verbally in the altercation, but she has given a one-sided version.  The deception is within what is missing

The use of "man" tells us that she, herself, is in conflict with her own understanding of the roles of masculinity and femininity further affirming her role as instigator.  She wants to require the male to take a distinctly gentlemanly role, which is not to hit a woman,  but she refuses, in this, to take the role of a lady, meaning not to imitate the male and fight physically. 

This further affirms her guilt besides giving us a great deal more insight into what happened.  

The fight was between women and she expected it to remain this way.  This may be because she perceived herself as "winning" until the "man" intervened.  

It would be fascinating to read statements from the accused.  

She started the fight and very likely kept it going when it may have been broken up.  She likely required the first punch.  Hence, "physically approached" may have been in response to a threat or insult that she is concealing.  

I am concerned that the subject may have been under the influence. 

It is very likely that those arrested told a different account than our subject.  

She is not truthful in that she is withholding information and she is giving a false narrative to a fight, portraying it as a political assault. 

It is "fake hate."  

She likely was very good at escalating the trouble.
