Burn the coal

Never stop paying the toll:
New paint will go on the walls at Nicole Beverly's Ypsilanti Township house in the coming weeks.

She'll rip down the boards she nailed to the windows by the front door, too. Beverly put them up several years ago as a safety measure to ensure her abusive ex-husband couldn't break the glass and then reach inside to open the door.

"When he was stalking us, we literally had to do anything we could to slow him down," she said. "We nailed a board over each of my side windows. I had to replace my basement windows with glass block because the windows were big enough for him to get in. My friend's partner installed the safety lights in the back on the outside of the shed. We had an alarm system installed.

"It was as safe as it could be. ... I bought that house myself. … The house, for me, was independence from him. It was, you know, a fresh start.”

Beverly, 44, is preparing for the day this summer when she and her boys will have to leave that home and escape to a new life somewhere else, somewhere with better laws to protect survivors of abuse.

And that somewhere, she hopes, will be a safe haven not only for her, but for her two sons. She’s being forced out of Michigan and into hiding by an ex-husband who, she says, is intent on killing her and by weak laws that fail to protect survivors like her.

Kevin Beverly, 44, is serving out the end of his sentence on a 2012 aggravated stalking conviction involving his ex-wife. But even from prison, the threats have continued.

Four times in four years, he allegedly tried to hire people to kill Nicole and their children from prison or threatened to kill them himself when he’s released.
At least no one will ever call her racist, right? What madness is this?

As a fellow Michigander, she can get a Concealed Pistol License with one day of $100-$200 training, about $120 of application and fingerprinting fees, and a month or three of waiting for approval. If she waits a little longer we might even have Constitutional Carry, since that's the way our legislature is leaning. With a Glock 9mm [ducking...I carry a Sig] that's less than a grand...how much is a house worth? But anti-racist virtue signalling and learned helplessness is "free."

As an alternative, a Mossberg 500 or Remington 870 with with a box of 12-gauge double-ought buck at Dunham's or Dick's is less than $300 after the clerk makes a 5-minute background check call to the Feds. How much is her life, house AND kids worth to her?

Why doesn't she get a gun? Because a gun would end the drama. Women like this live for the drama. As soon as the ex-husband is no longer a threat, she'll just find another man who is equally as dangerous and irresponsible.

Anyone who has known women like this is real life knows they gravitate toward trouble. If it's not a wife-beater, she'd be with a drunk, or a druggie, or a child molester. The one demographic she's unfamiliar with is called "average men with steady jobs."

American families used to discourage women from being like this by disowning them when they dated the wrong men early on. Now we pay for their lives of insanity with our tax dollars, where they can access a myriad of "services" that enable their dysfunction.

But all that's only half the problem. The other half is we can't speak frankly about this like we could in the age of our grandparents. The other day on Father's Day, a TV station put out a Facebook message along the lines of "Let's hear it for the strong single moms!" My g/f commented, writing "So you want us to praise women who chose irresponsible men to breed with?" Not only was the comment deleted, but other commenters piled on complaining about it, using "churchian" non-arguments praising these "strong" women. There's where we're going wrong as a society.

Is this a racial thing, if I didn't love my kids so much I'd happily choke the life out of my soon to be ex wife.

"My friend's partner installed the safety lights in the back on the outside of the shed." If she got a gun, she might lose the white knight orbitters she's stockpiling.

@Days of Broken Arrows

If your girlfriend feels secure enough in you to say that, then she is one lucky girl. Good on you.

Unfortunate that she squatted out two Mini-Mes for the lowlife.

"somewhere with better laws to protect survivors of abuse"

Hmm..yes, laws will protect her.

class A surfacing said...

She's so afraid that she's commenting and replying on the story.

Are you not entertained???

Days of Broken Arrows: "using "churchian" non-arguments praising these "strong" women."

From a Christian perspective, historically such women would have been considered 'weak', succumbing to the temptations of the flesh.

But then we live in looking glass world, these days.

Her "children" are two hulking yoots.

My goodness, but I get a day's quotient of belly laughs reading here.

10 hit points of damage, indeed.

She's a level 5 mage, subclass Drama Queen...or just another bat guano crazy bitch who surrounds herself in chaos wherever she goes.

dc.sunsets said...

While her attention whoring could suffice, the GoFundMe panhandling might add to the incentive to her, "Oh woe is me" shtick.

Bottle blond, check.
Way past prime, check.
Attention whore, check.
Drama Queen, check.
Money grubbing, check.

What a walking chaos factory.

dc.sunsets said...

OT is GoFundMe just panhandling with smartphones?

Midnight Avenue J said...

Haha, yes, dc, GFM is smartphone panhandling.

Over the past week I e seen several gfm campaigns. One was for the sake of a 10 month old girl whose mom died suddenly and tragically. I knew the mom, she's in my community, money given no sweat.

Another: a man who has part time custody of his kids but is expected to pay 110% of their expenses. I also know this man. Has his troubles but is trying to do right. His insurance doesn't cover beyond certain levels, and his ex wife is demanding hearing aids at tip-top level, so HE has to pay. Between alimony and rent, etc., he's on the hook for $5K every few years. So I gave a little.

Third case: couple in their early 30s, woman on disability and expecting a baby in August. Husband works night shift at Walmart. They can't make rent or car payments. Looking for the community to front them three months of each while they get on their feet. I don't know these people but local friends have been circulating their sob story. Will not give a cent...smells of lassitude, drugs, and generally irresponsible behavior.

There are others...so, so many others, begging almost daily for a few bucks to get by.

Dregs gonna dreg. I'm more concerned that very private matters (care for an infant due to maternal death) have to be publicly and widely broadcast in order to gain traction...we've lost something. Either an inability to give, or to accept, generosity in our immediate circle, so we seek it elsewhere. Out of a sense of non-duty or non-obligation, or not, I don't know.

I was little in the 80s. My family was tight. Someone died, young or old? We had an army of men and women ready to mow lawns and cook food and pay bills, tutor, transport, pray, and visit. Friends and relatives were part of the brigade. Didn't matter.

Doesn't seem so, anymore.

Diversity killed community.

It really is that simple. (Well, leftism did, too. Why give charity when the welfare state monopoly deducts it from your paycheck?)

dc.sunsets said...

Now I get it.

People who are high spectrum for novelty seeking make horrible spouses. White women banging blacks pin the needle for novelty seeking.

Logical conclusion; obvious.
