UK slaps ‘Anti-Social Behaviour Order’ on 13-year-old

Wow—the United Kingdom has something called an “anti-social behaviour order,” (Asbo) which is a civil order designed to correct incidents which are disruptive to the community but don’t warrant criminal prosecution. Read more about it on Wikipedia.

A young troublemaker named Jordan Kept Withey was recently subject to such an order. He is prohibited from “engaging or inciting others to engage in any behavior that causes or is likely to cause harassment, alarm or distress to one or more persons not of the same household as himself, anywhere in the Huberside Police area.”

Read: Baby-faced tearaway, 13, slapped with an Asbo after terrorising his community from the age of NINE, on DailyMail.co.uk.

Do any of our UK readers know more about these orders? Do they work?

Dr. Phil conned by ‘psychopath’ about Sandusky sex ring

Yesterday, the Dr. Phil show aired an “exclusive” interview with Greg Bucceroni of Philadelphia, who claimed he was once a child prostitute victimized by every famous pedophile in Pennsylvania, New Jersey and New York, including Jerry Sandusky.

Dr. Phil appeared to believe his story. But according to the Philadelphia Daily News, nobody else does. Law enforcement officials say his claims are unfounded. Former Governor Ed Rendell says Bucceroni is “crackers.” And, regarding Bucceroni’s claims of being a junior mob associate, a real wise guy called him a “psychopath.”

On the same show, Dr. Phil talked to Travis Weaver, the only alleged victim who has talked publicly about being molested by Sandusky. Weaver testified before a grand jury and is suing Sandusky, Sandusky’s Second Mile organization and Penn State. If you watch the show, Weaver’s demeanor, and his description of what happened, were totally different from the story Bucceroni told.

The Psychopath’s Enablers

By Joyce Alexander, RNP (retired)

Psychopaths do a great deal of damage to their victims. The fact that there are people who are aware of what they are doing and choose to “look the other way” or to “sit on the fence and do nothing” enables the psychopaths to continue to abuse their victims. If the bystanders would stand up and assist the victims, even acknowledge that they are being victimized, the psychopaths might not be quite so successful.

One of the most famous of these enablers who chose to look the other way was a man named Pontius Pilate, the Roman prefect in Jerusalem in AD 33. When Jesus was brought before him by the Jewish leaders, Pilate stated that he found “no fault” in Jesus, yet he gave Jesus over to the mob to be crucified.

LETTERS TO LOVEFRAUD: His most lethal weapon was disarming ‘innocence’

Editor’s note: The following story was sent by a Lovefraud reader whom we’ll call “Beatrice.” The name of the perpetrator has been changed.

Its now four months since I’ve found out the cold, hard truth about my ex, and I really want to move on, but would also find it cathartic to share my horrific experience with as many people as possible — also if I can help one other person to avoid the pain and trauma of the past two years I will not have wasted my time. Please feel free to share this with as many people as possible, the more people know about these dangerous predators, the less their power to destroy others lives will be.

Four months ago on 15 May 2012 I had a phone call which changed my life. Prior to this I had NO idea I had been the victim of a very cruel and devious fraud, which has all but destroyed my health and wellbeing.

Defining My “Grey Rock” and Recognizing The Insignificance of The Psychopath Sperm Donor

I have heard a lot of people give advice about how the best way to get rid of a psychopath is to show him/her a “grey rock” of emotions.  While I understand that this means that I cannot let the psychopath see any emotion beyond that of an emotionless grey rock, putting this theory into practice has proved to be one of the hardest things to do.  I still believe I will have my moments, but it took an extreme situation for me to tap into what I needed to understand in order to achieve my own version of “grey rock”.

The “Extreme Situation”:

Baby boy had another rough 72 hours which landed him two more hospital visits.  We started out in the hospital a few days ago after he spiked another fever, had another seizure, and this time turned blue in the process.

Love After The Sociopath

I’m finally beginning to properly ‘get’ the age-old adage that life is a journey not a destination. Let me assure you, my particular journey continues to be filled with the most bizarre ups and downs, and I’m coming to realize that truth really is stranger than fiction – well, in my case at least.

Many peculiar happenings and coincidences have been going on over the past few weeks, most of which I am not currently at liberty to share. When the time is right I will put pen to paper, but until then I’ve decided to fulfill my urge to write by focusing on my own personal experiences around the subject of love after the sociopath.

Being Human

Announcing the e-book version of “Love Fraud”

Editor’s note: The following article refers to spiritual concepts. Please read Lovefraud’s statement on Spiritual Recovery.

Two years ago, I published my first book, Love Fraud—How marriage to a sociopath fulfilled my spiritual plan. I am very excited to announce that Love Fraud is now available in all e-book formats. Whether you read on an Amazon Kindle or an iPhone, Love Fraud is now formatted for your device. With free e-reader software, you can also download the book and read it on your computer.

The e-book version is only US$9.99. And of course, there’s no shipping cost, making the book much more accessible to our international readers. I’ve also edited the book to make it about 20 percent shorter than the original, which was admittedly long. I still tell the outrageous tale of how James Alwyn Montgomery swindled me and seven other women, how I pursued him and how I finally recovered. I just tell the story with a little less detail.
