Re: “A different kind of Christmas

Ooooooo! Struck a nerve with Norma Bates, did I? Good. Norma, I’m not going to get into a spitting contest with you. Despite your sarcasm, you explained it better than I did and made my points about sociopaths for me. Thank you! By the way, you put in more “facts” about poor Alle than were in the tabloid article. That indicates that you would have to be an insider, like a family member, involved official, or Times staffer.

Re: “A different kind of Christmas

People are so gullible. I can't believe that Mara Leveritt wrote such a one-sided story without analyzing the situation. Here we have a father who is an alcoholic, a mother who played at being a teenager, a brother on drugs, and last but not least, a preteen on medication, including steroids. The preteen calls a hotline and claims that she has been raped but medical evidence doesn't support her claim; lies about her family; and she herself takes the name of the man she has accused. Her parents admit the child has been neglected, and the father states that Whitaker told him twice that she needed therapy. Right there he doesn't fit the profile. Why would a rapist care about his victim's mental health? Her father says that he can't believe that his best friend did it. The child has admitted that she lied to the hotline. To summarize the story: A dysfunctional family who neglected their daughter wants a Gold Star for shifting their guilt trip onto what appears to be the only person who expressed any concern for her. Shades of the 1980s! Remember all those lives that were destroyed when children, prompted by police and psychiatrists, lied about abuse? Has anyone looked into this child's fiction with an unbiased eye?
