But we showed Empathy!

Saturday, May 10, 2008

Some people may wonder why we continue to focus on those we have dubbed the "blame gamers".

So I'm going to tell you a little more about one of them.

Along with her husband she is the founder and director of Roar for Freedom and her name is

Betty Price aka amber_leaf1957

She's married to a registered sex offender named Michael Price aka Kiokwus, who plead guilty to sexually assaulting his daughter and now makes these conflicting statements:
  1. "I didn't do it"
  2. "It has been over 20 years since I committed my crime"

Betty is Michael's biggest defender and was herself molested as a child. On two separate occasions by two different people. No one ever discovered the abuse and Betty never told. Now at the age of 50 Betty says she's glad she never told.

It is a well known fact that burying trauma is the least healthy thing a person can do. Furthermore, "not telling" enables the offender to continue their behavior. And while you cannot blame a child for that, I can't help but wonder if Betty's abusers didn't also abuse other children. Chances are that they did.

Betty - the child - didn't have the knowledge or the maturity to know she should have told. Not only for her own emotional well-being but to also protect other children. We can't blame Betty the child for that. But we can blame Betty the activist for presuming she's knowledgeable enough about this issue to be going into elementary schools "educating" children about sexual abuse. Especially when she routinely makes statements such as this:
I can tell you this. I am glad that 42 and 37 years ago, I did not know to tell what had been done to me. I often wonder if that is why I am not a victim. No one told me to be a victim, no one told me I had been victimized. I am glad that people I have forgiven did not have their entire lives destroyed because of a grievous mistake
Betty is a woman with such severe Post Traumatic Stress Disorder that the only thing she can leave her house for is to visit her therapist, "educate" children, or give speeches at rally's. Something about this doesn't sound right, does it?

So let's look at her mission statement:
ROAR is an organization with the mission of uniting victims/survivors, sex offenders, and their family and friends.

ROAR's major goal is toward Education and Prevention of sexual abuse.
This is a nation wide campaign to educate society about the truths, rather than the myths about sex offenders, recidivism rates, and the effects that laws and ordinances have on sex offenders, their children, future generations, and society in general. Also to teach children, parents, educators and other persons how to prevent Child Sexual Abuse and if not prevented teach the child what to do, rather than carry this on their little shoulders.
Then Betty shows up on this little blog HERE and makes this statement:
Roar for Freedom is NOT about changing the laws
So I just can't help but wonder then what she meant by this:
I have someone teaching me about lobbying. If no money changes hands, I can go lobby on our behalf and we don't have to worry about a whole bunch of things. One of which, would be paying a lobbyist tons of money that we do not have. This person has lobbied many times. I am learning as quickly as I can.
Or this:
I am doing us as a 501 c 4 so that we will be allowed to Lobby. That is something we will have to learn and there are many places on the internet to help us to learn it. Lobbying, of course, is our one way to fight the laws. There are others, but I feel we will get our point across better with a bunch of us lobbying.
Or hey, how about this one:
As for actual help, one thing I am hoping to get done is a large grant for Roar that we can use to help our members financially, when things get hard.
Betty is a liar, Betty is a deceiver and manipulator, Betty is going into elementary schools in West Virginia teaching your children about child sexual abuse. What do you think about that?
They can treat is as such because all of America will allow them. This is why we need conferences/rallies and going in to schools to Educate. We have to get the word out.
Before Betty and Michael escaped from Florida they held a rally in Palm Bay. They printed up a brochure to hand out. Betty tried desperately to get therapists to speak at the rally but alas:
When Mike and I left SOSEN and started ROAR, the two were not doing things alike at all. When Mike and I organized the Palm Bay Rally, I called all over trying to get a therapist to speak at the Rally. The reason each of them stated for not speaking at the Rally was that the SOSEN site showed too much anger and absolutely no empathy.
Betty learned. Now she speaks of empathy whenever possible. She uses the words on her website, and in her group but it's empty words. She's using that word because she believes apparently that saying it will reflect that they are empathetic to victims. Nothing could be further from the truth.
Mike has the pamphlet that we did for the Rally we organized in Palm Bay. We would want the information on there from the website stating our Goals, showing victim empathy, the U.S. DOJ statistics and links, the PO Box number and my phone number here.
Well I have the pamphlet too. I think you would be interested in some of the wording of it. It was double sided tri-fold. So a total of 6 columns. 5 of which were completely devoted to how sex offenders are suffering or will be suffering should the law they were lobbying against be passed. One column had a bit about how to talk to your child who has been sexually abused. Let's look at that one:
When it comes down to cases of sexual abuse, it involves each and every member of the family. While the government focuses on doing as much damage to the offender, IE, long jail periods, long probationary periods, GPS monitoring etc, the children can both see and hear what is going on.

You may find the children have an anger they cannot explain. They may blame themselves for what happened. Your job is assure them they did nothing wrong nor were they the cause of what is going on. Utilize these feelings and teach the children to express what they feel inside, verbally, in pictures or written down. It is a very striking portrayal of the damage the government has caused under the guise of "saving the children". It shows those who need to know best just how their saving the children excuse has not worked, rather has adverse effects they don't even take into consideration.

And let's not forget the statistics she claims to "educate" people with. Straight off her 'educational' pamphlet:
96% of sex crimes committed by someone other than a previously known sex offender – Department of Justice, 1994
Betty didn't get that statistic from the DOJ. We talked about that statistic HERE and HERE. No she got it from the eadvocate website. And when someone showed up in her group and tried to explain about that website, this is what happened:
Please visit the following and educate yourself:
It's in no way a objective source of information, its written by an offender who feels the laws have gone too far. He's just angry and distorts and manipulates information, showing only one side of the story and twisting to suite his goals. It's a source of misinformation not knowledge, although it is a real good case study about how offenders think they have it too hard and how offenders think everyone else is the problem
Betty Price:
I don't believe I have ever met such an ignorant person!!!!!!!!!!! Check out the links below. They have very good information. I also have a DVD three parter with a therapist in FL $!).00 and a Booklet for $5.00 s&h $6.95 They all have loads of information.
And then....McNulty was banned.

Betty the child sexual abuse "educator" makes comments like this
I was molested by two people, I was not molested by the 550,000 registered former sex offenders.
Seemingly oblivious to the at least 550,000 victims of those 550,000 RSO's. She also said:
I too was molested twice as a child by two different people. At 6 and at 10. I am a Survivor. You should have seen Dan Abrams face when he interviewed us and I told him I was molested twice as a child. He was speechless for a few seconds. Then he said, "Then you married a sex offender?" I told him, "Yes, he wasnt the one who molested me."
Once again, seemingly oblivious to the one he had molested.

Then her friend shows up to help her. They generally travel in packs. r_nite1 aka reallyconfuzzled1 says
I speak as a victim who regrets the offender was ever reported. And this was 25 years ago. My family was more 'victimized' by the 'justice system' and 'Child Protective Services' than we were by the offender. There is no way I would report today knowing that in addition I would be 'victimized' by society.
The truth is, HE was the offender. Against his own child.

Or what about Stephen Savner aka Product of the Past who said
Go into an elementary classroom today and the curriculum is somewhat different. Now they teach kids about stranger danger, sexual diseases and bad touches from Uncle Carl. Things that used to be our jobs as parents. When did we give the government our power over our own children's upbringing?
And who also said
Sometimes I feel very guilty for having brought him into this world with the position that I am in. Knowing that someday he will have to know what his father did. I feel ashamed when I look into his trusting eyes and see the unconditional love he has for me, knowing that I once abused that trust in another child...........There are those who will say, "He never said one word about how he harmed his victim!" This is true. I have become very weary of that topic.
I wonder how much he has learned after being convicted of molesting a 5 year old child. And why is he on gaming sites posing as a 16 year old?

We could look again at Shirley Lowery, as painful as that is. If you can bear it take a look at this and read how she believes "Jesus was a Pedophile"

You see, they are all the same. Shirley Lowery, Betty Price, Jan Kruska. They are "me, me, me" people. "Oh, you say you've been hurt? Oh, surely there are worse things that could happen to someone....get over it, stop being a victim....be like me a survivor...and besides more people are killed by drunk drivers therefore raping babies must be ok"

These are the people behind the upcoming rally in Ohio. And congrats to Betty Price who received a nice donation and will be able to make it to the Columbus Ohio Rally after all. It should be interesting to hear what she has to say. Hope to see you there.
