(Please see evidence of the abuse I endured in the youtube video and press releases on CNN iReport)
One of his tactics in gaining and maintaining control is to get the person to lie for him. It can be in exchange for him doing something for the person, or it can simply be among his expectations for one being his woman or even his friend. Ask Lisa Saelens, who contacted his New Jersey victim whose restraining order he violated for which there is a warrant for Dean West's arrest. She told his New Jersey victim in a phone conversation and in e-mail, as well as other people around Springfield, that she told lies for Dean because she was afraid of him. Dean did reciprocate, according to him, by helping her trick her former boyfriend, a mentally ill man, out of his car (there is a Springfield Police report number on this I will post later too). Once you are entangled in his web, he uses your own shortcomings and sins against you. Lisa Saelens of Springfield also told me that she was afraid of Dean, when I first got to Springfield in the fall of '08. He got his first wife to lie for him in exchange for taking the tax credit for her son. He had tried to kill his first wife, by choking her over 20 years ago. He was going to be prosecuted but she fled the state of Illinois for her home state, with the assistance of her family, and didn't follow through with it. I wish she had. She would have saved many women from being harmed. .
Another example is the huge lie Kathleen Callahan told the Sangamon County Court after she had fled Dean's abuse to the home of her friends of 20 years, Karen and Arthur Vogel. She had, according to Mr. Vogel's report of the note she left when she left their home, a dispute with her family, not an unusual occurence. She said Kingston wasn't a good place for her to be. She had begged the Vogels to take her in, telling them that Dean had slapped her around, bent her fingers back and that he had threatened to kill her if she didn't do what he said and that no one would ever find her body. She told Arthur and Karen in a note that she knew she was making a bad decision in going back but, as I have already noted, she felt Kingston wasn't a good place for her. I am convinced from my own experiences when Dean West expected me to lie for him that Kathleen had to fax that "letter" to the court as a condition for being able to return to the mortgage free/rent free dwelling owned by The Myria Foundation, the foundation I paid to incorporate. The dwelling where acts of violence have been committed against more than one woman. There is evidence that Arthur Vogel spoke to the Springfield Police Department on the day they did a well-check on Kate, during which she lied for Dean and denied having been hurt by him. There is an incident report number I will post later when I return to edit this blog.
I lied for him too. I have written about it on this blog. Part of his MO is that he uses the newest woman to protect him from consequences for having harmed previous women. Obedience and compliance are expected.
One of the things Dean says in defense of himself, while acting out his perpetual con game is "If I have done all these awful things, why haven't I been charged?" That is something I am asking the various law enforcement agencies, including the ones who dropped the ball years ago. Becoming aware of various victim's groups has shown me that there are many, many, crimes in this country that are committed with no consequences, not even a complete investigation. Lt. Peters of the Springfield Police Department internal affairs division and Sgt. Anderson, a very nice detective, told me that my problem lies with the prosecutor. They said they aren't spending any money on investigating the many leads they have been given unless they hear from the prosecutor's office that Dean will be charged. Janet Makinen, Abigail Larson (my daughter) and I, met with John Milhiser who told us he didn't know why the police were telling us that. In light of the recent lawsuit filed by Jaycee Dugard I wonder if liability has anything to do with what they are doing. If they had punished him appropriately, he would not have believed he could get away with tricking me into moving to Tucson in his attempt to commit murder by provoking a suicide (a crime which can be tried as attempted murder and for which there is no statute of limitations). My sense is that most Americans aren't aware that unless one has money, property, or many outspoken or connected friends and family in a community, crimes committed against you probably won't be addressed properly, meaning appropriate investigation and assembling of evidence for prosecution. Shocking to find that your life is worth very little in this great nation where politicians continually pretend that the individual voter matters. Ha! They have a ton of leads on Dean West and nothing is being done. John Schmidt and Roma Larson, both Sangamon County State's Attorneys, should feel ashamed, but I bet they do not.

(QUALIFICATION: The people discussed on this blog are or have been supposed directors of what have been purported to be charitable foundations, The Myria Foundation, and The Encyclopedia Foundation and so are public figures subject to public scrutiny of their character. I was a duped into becoming involved, first as a "director" of The Encyclopedia Foundation and then as a "Founding Director" of The Myria Foundation, verifiable with the Illinois Secretary of State's office. I paid for the incorporation of The Myria Foundation and I have a legal right to discuss this. This is MY life, and I am a witness to crimes no one seems to want to do anything about. I have over 2 inches of documents and hours of wav. files to back me up and the alleged illegal behaviors here have been reported to the Attorney General's office in Illinois as well as the State's Attorney of Sangamon County and the Springfield Police, and are part of various court records. It is my layman's opinion that Dean West is a sociopath, based on observed and documented behaviors. He is on probation right now for resisting a peace officer and I know there is a warrant out for him violating the RO of one of his net victims in Paterson, New Jersey and to the best of my knowledge there is a warrant out of South Dakota right now also. Any questions? Feel free to e-mail me at firstname.lastname@example.org or call me at 440-285-2648. Google "Kathleen Callahan and Ambien" for links with information showing Kathleen Callahan is a public figure. My friend Janet Makinen was involved in that suit as well and you can see her involvement if you google her name with Ambien.)
