Asma al-Assad, Trayvon Martin, and the women who have enabled Dean West to hurt them and other victims

What do the women who have enabled Mr. West to hurt them and other victims have in common with Mrs. Assad and Trayvon Martin?   Just think about it.

After Mr. West hurt the New Jersey victim, whose restraining order was allegedly violated (a warrant was issued for Mr. Wests arrest out of Paterson, NJ, USA) a woman who lived in Washington State gave him money, but rejected him.  Then another woman he met on the old MSN groups (he met all three on the internet) from South Dakota helped him.  There is a warrant for his arrest from there for having violated a stalking restraining order.  That victim alleged he began blackmailing her because she was married. He allegedly threatened to kill her husband. (I have many of the legal documents in the case) Then he went to Springfield, IL where he found a woman who was willing to buy him a house and give up thousands to be in the relationship with him (Mr. West appeared very affectionate when I was giving up money for him so I assume he did a lot of that for her to part with so much money).  Police reports from Leland Grove, IL show that things went sour with her early on, but they continued the back and forth pattern typical of many abusive relationships from 2006 to 2009, when he found another replacement.  I was wedged in there, and I think that because I ended up fighting for justice the hardest (Kathy Warren did try to fight for justice when she first found out about me) he is fighting very hard to this day to beat me down, primarily through the use of lies at this time (He has lied repeatedly in numerous court documents, most recently in an attempt to sue my therapist, Phyllis Yeropoli. We never had marriage counseling and she was never his therapist!).  He had created a SD foundation with Kathy Warren (West) and her sister and duped Kathy into paying cash for the foundation house.  When he met me, he worked on getting her to sign off on her directorship, in her own hand, and somehow tricked her into signing off on her interest in the foundation house when he got HER to pay for their first void dissolution ( legally the dissolution and the marriage are void because he was married to Sherry West, who he met in Alaska when he married both Ms. Warren (now Haynes) and myself).  After he married me (not really because he is still married to Sherry West) he convinced me to help him create a new foundation and to pay for transferring the property Kathy Warren had paid for into the new foundation name.

This blog discusses and provides links to various police reports and incidents of violence in previous posts and those are public records.  The police have NEVER fully investigated all this.  Believe it or not, I am still hopeful for that.  Anyway, he used me to try to hurt her, then after he beat me (see links to some of the police pictures taken at the hospital in the youtube video bar in the left column) he used her to hurt me, and back and forth it went, until he finally went after a woman with no children and severely broken family ties who also has an alleged history of having been abused, but also a history of making decisions based on personal ease and convenience.  Prior to meeting Mr. West she had hooked up with an elderly man from New England and gained access to his retirement.  According to one source she was called on the carpet by the man's daughter because she had arranged for his retirement checks to be direct deposited into her account.  Mr. West beat her up early.  She fled to her home state, but her family rejected her once again and she went back to Mr. West.  During the brief time she was away, Mr. West ran into court with Kathy Warren and dropped their divorce, only to dump her again when Ms. Callahan agreed by phone to submit to at least one of his demands, to lie about me to authorities, for according to Ms. Callahan's report to her childhood friend, the Vogels, Mr. West had demanded that she was to do as he said or he was going to kill her.  Desperate and probably in her eyes, homeless (she was staying with a married couple, the Vogels) she returned to Springfield.  She had known Mr. West about two weeks before giving up her great job in Florida and going off to be with him.  It took him months to wear me down, from July, 2007 to October, to suck me into his web.  I really can't believe sometimes that I was sucked in, because I was a strong person, the matriarch of my family, who had been awarded custody of one of my grandkids after being investigated by her attorney/Guardian ad Litem.  I wasn't a degenerate.  I was attending Youngstown State University, and had been admitted to the college of education.  Even after the drama began, I worked in 2008 at Chardon assisted living.  Then Mr. West decided he would strip me of everything by tricking me into moving to Tucson.  And anyone who has ever been duped by him and is aware of it knows that he is capable of manipulating women to that extent.  

I ended up a broken person, with very low self-esteem.  I took many beatings from him when I lived there from November - January 2009.  Lisa Saelens and Kathy Warren actually helped him lie by signing documents he demanded they sign.  He uses everything he knows about a person to get what he wants, their weaknesses, their questionable and illegal activities.  He blackmails.  He lies to them.  He cons and manipulates them.  He talks people in circles, expounding his skewed and warped logic over and over again.  He wears them down.  The timing of him having them sign those documents reveals that he was worried that I was going to report the abuse I had been taking.  I was getting a bit too feisty for his liking.  I showed a couple people who had come to the home my bruises and talked about what he was doing to me.  Dean West told me he had helped Lisa Saelens by tricking her boyfriend into signing his car title.  There has been a police investigation so the accusation by Douglas Trester is public information in court documents and the police report.  Mr. Trester suffers from a severe mental illness and to my knowledge didn't even remember signing it.  At that time he was going to sign it over the the foundation.  Dean had reportedly (as he himself described it to me) promised to make repairs and had told Mr. Trester that he too was a director of the foundation.  I have documents Mr. West drafted that prove this.  Anyway, Mr. West was on probation when he was beating me, for an assault on a police officer which had been dealt down to a "resisting" charge.   EVERYTHING he does for some years is to protect himself from accountability for hurting the last person he hurt.  In other blog posts I have provided links to police reports documenting numerous (some alleged) acts of violence.  What would possess ANY woman to stay with such a person?  To continue to believe the lies that are sometimes only obvious on close examination of the facts?  I believe Mrs. Assad can give some insight.  She is with a monster.  Sure, Mr. West  can't reach the grand scale of the atrocities committed by Mr. Assad, but he has harmed women and children, including me and my granddaughter, and he manipulates to maintain any bit of power he has achieved over his victims.  Large scale or small, the women these kinds of men choose have their own demons, their own level of sickness, self-delusion and I assert their own level of narcissism.  What an accomplishment huh?  Manipulating women.  Mr. Assad and people like him are cut from the same sociopathic cloth, in my opinion.  Do you think that Mrs. Assad's not being able to go on shopping sprees will be effective in denting her obvious acceptance of Mr. Assad's evil acts.  The women who have helped Dean West hurt them and others have all done evil deeds in the name of love.  Yes, me too.  Kathy Warren tried to reach out to me when the police showed up in December, 2007 and she called me afterwards.  I helped Dean win against her in court, to a degree, even though I wasn't even there.  Both she and I went back to him later, which is something he prides himself on and has even bragged publicly about, that the poor "bitches" want him back even after he hurts them.   By the time he met Kathleen Callahan, he had achieved a main goal of his to be able to lure a woman, having a mortgage free, rent free house he could lure them too.  And thanks to Kathy Warren and her credit rating, all the systems are new, the roof is new and he can survive on a piddly amount of income.  She once told me she lived without a water heater, taking showers at the Y, but gave him cash!   

I ended up with nothing, but I have learned a lot.  I am free.  I am not in sick relationships.  None.  I don't have drama in my own life.   Why do I continue to fight for justice with regards to these matters?  Because I now believe I matter, truly matter.  Like Trayvon Martin's grieving family should have mattered to those police and the prosecutor, the women and children Dean West has hurt should have mattered.  I haven't read the Florida laws on releasing information, but his parents should have been given the information that is now trickling out, from the getgo. Transparency in government is usually the best policy, and misinformation has led to people jumping to the wrong conclusions. Police and prosecutors, as I have previously written, are too often allowed to decide exclusively who matters and who doesn't.  I saw Trayvon's mother say that her son should have mattered.  Well, I agree, but now George Zimmerman is at risk for being railroaded and that is not the solution for the situation!  His life matters and I should have mattered as well.  If the police had done their job when Kathy Warren tried to have him arrested in December, 2007 things might have gone differently for us all.  If the Sioux Falls Police Department had done their job in 2006, when they saw evidence that he had hurt Lori McNealy physically and arrested him, things would have likely been different for us all.  If after receiving a domestic violence call from a neighbor, the S. Lake Tahoe Police Department had done their job and helped the New Jersey victim who was mouthing to them "Help me," while she stood behind him at the door things would have turned out differently for us all.  If over 20 years ago, the McLean County prosecutor had not dropped the ball simply because his first wife Patricia had gone back to Wa. state after he was arrested for hurting her, things would have turned out differently for us all.  Do I believe that most police and prosecutors want to hurt people in their actions?  Probably not.  I think one of the things that needs to happen in our society, a fundamental change, is a frank discussion about human nature and the propensities we all have for behavior that hurts others.  The people who are supposed to be whole and have it together, when put in positions of power, often haven't been made to take a good look at their own human vulnerability when it comes to potential abuse of power.  It seems that abuse of power is rampant now-a days and even admired to varying degrees.  Public servants, all public servants, should be educated on that and on the constitution.  I have been hearing a lot of talk during the current presidential campaign about our "rights" being God-given and inalienable.  To me it relates to the idea of people mattering.  Yes, even warped women who keep going back to men that hurt them.  When they do take a step toward the light and do something about being abused, as Kathleen Callahan did when Mr. West was arrested for hurting her in 2010, then those in power should not hand power back to that victim as to whether charges are pursued.  Or as in the case of Patricia West (Normal, Il and Spokane, Wa police report) Kathy Warren (Leland Grove and Springfield Police reports, Sharyn Goldman (Paterson, NJ warrant), Dr and Lori McNealy (South Dakota warrant), me, Robin West (Springfield, Il police reports and Ashtabula County, Oh) or even Michael West who tried to tell police in Alaska what Mr. West was doing but was reportedly blown off as a young man jealous of the new man in the house, reports of violence need to result in arrests and prosecution.  The victims of domestic abuse are rarely the perfect victim.  Trayvon Martin experienced what many victims of crime experience across this nation every single day: he didn't matter to the people entrusted to act as if he mattered.  They didn't even do the minimum when investigating a death, is my understanding.  When I had the courage to go to the hospital in Springfield and the police were called to take pictures (see the video bar in the left column of this blog), though the officer was very nice, he failed to note or investigate a very important thing the perp was doing.  Mr. West was calling my cell phone excessively, to the point that the officer said for me to try to trick him into coming to pick me up.  And the officer said it within earshot so Mr. West heard it and knew it was a trick.  It was as if that investigatively important behavior, immediately following the assault was funny.  Mr. West also had the cellphone I had under his account shut off and on twice that morning.  No one got the cell phone records.  I have tried, and Mr. West likely brags to some of the women who he has hurt that still tolerate his psychosis, that somehow justice has been done.  Close examination of documents and facts prove that I just have a hard time being my own attorney.  Judge Otwell was VERY interested in the phone records for me to prove fraud upon the court on October 31, 2011.   I withdrew my petition because I simply could not perform in the aggressive manor required to fight my case in live court.  Why should I have even had to?

I shouldn't have.

To view some of the police reports made against Mr. West, look under "Links Worth Clicking" in the left column of this blog.  I haven't yet posted all I have in my possession.  Also, he was a self-proclaimed hobo who lived in every state but Hawaii for about ten years so there are likely other police reports and marriages out there.  

I also want to add that police reports should be public information everywhere.  I ran into the differences amongst jurisdiction when I requested police reports involving Mr. West as the alleged perp in S. Lake Tahoe California, Sioux Falls, SD.  I had to send subpoenas.  Redaction policies differ too.  When people can commit crimes and simply move to another state, within the United States without consequence and it leads to more victimization, something is wrong.  That shouldn't be the case in this modern information age.  When the Springfield Police did a background check, Mr. West's warrant out of S. Dakota from his indictment there didn't even show up!
Some of 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, which I co-created, verifiable with the Illinois Secretary of State's office. I paid to incorporate The Myria Foundation and I have a legal right to discuss it. This is MY life, and I am a witness to and victim of crimes no one seems to want to do anything about (though last I knew there is an open criminal case against him in Sangamon County). I have over 2 feet of documents and hours of wav. files to back me up and the alleged illegal behaviors I write about here have been reported to the FBI, the Attorney General's office in Illinois, the State's Attorney of Sangamon County and the Springfield Police, the Ashtabula County, Oh, Sheriff and prosecutor, the Sangamon County, IL, Sheriff, 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. "Oh what a tangled web we weave, when first we practice to deceive." As a good citizen of the USA, I am outraged that Mr. West has been allowed to victimize me. His modus operandi is so clear. He uses his current female victim/s to help him get away with what he did to the last one. The domestic violence community is missing the boat on that aspect: women who stay in abusive relationships are sick. Allowing them to determine public policy and prosecution does not protect the public. Most men who beat women do not murder, they simply move on to the next victim. Most recently, Mr. West was charged with Domestic Violence against yet another female partner/director of the "foundation" (but she didn't show up at the trial and Judge Sanchez wouldn't grant the prosecutor a continuance to find her!) and just prior to that was on probation for resisting a peace officer, which started out as assault of a police officer. I know there is a warrant out for him violating the RO of one of his net victims in Paterson, New Jersey and there is a felony warrant for him out of Sioux Falls, South Dakota right now also for a sixth degree felony, violation of a stalking restraining order.
