Re: Cyberstalking Charges for Your Mentally Ill Son, who has Asperger Syndrome
Message #1: “This message is for Cynthia Courter. My name is Fred Thomas. I’ve been sending you emails (to an account that you do not use anymore) and would like you to respond back to me. If you can’t respond back to me, I really hope that I don’t have to send your office some really, I don’t know - embarrassing information, perhaps. So if you can just write back to me and answer my questions that I’ve asked for you, I’d really appreciate it. Bye.”
Message #2: “Yeah, Cynthia Courter, you need to text message me or us email me or seething cause I’m really getting angry and I’m going to tell your employer all your dirty information, all your secrets, and if you think you’re going to be really embarrassed you should respond back to me. Bye.”
May God bless you, your son, and all families experiencing mental health crisis. Unfortunately, the greatest crises for families with mentally ill members come the injustice system itself, which seems determined to use our mentally dysfunctional relatives to boost prison profits.
