This is what we deal with when people do not understand, or they simply do not care. THERE WILL ALWAYS BE THOSE WHO BULLY, BUT WE MUST NOT LET THEM WIN. We must persevere, and be brave. Stand tall, and stay true. Much like why we are building The Sandy Hook Kids Center. It stands to be an example of humanity. That even in the worst situations, good will always prevail.
In our case, we hope that justice will prevail.
Below is a complaint by Brooke Shields to us when we introduced ourselves to her in the hopes she'd help bring this vision to fruition. For the record, she is the reason we are here in the first place.
***** Brooke's assistant had vandalized my car. I took to social media to bitch. Not thinking at all it would even get to Brooke. In actuality it wasn't even directed to Brooke but to the guy who felt compelled to touch my car. The post- that I've seen are of Brooke, and obviously someone else is taking them of her, so I'd assume they too would be tweeting on her Twitter account on her behalf. Real celebrities do not tweet themselves, and if they do it's very infrequent At least that's what publicists and agents say. Clearly Brooke has too much to do that to be tweeting and if she's only new to it this year, that also mens she's not tech savvy and all the more reason she wouldn't be tweeting..
There is no way in hell I could pose even a threat, All you need to do is check me out on line.
You use fear and such very loosely and solely to coincide with the laws established- code words so to speak. This is simple vindictiveness on behalf of Brooke's assistant and all that had been used as complaint has been taken out of context with clarification in reading the entire thought. In trying to manipulate the court with unfounded code-words is a manipulation and it's wrong.
Do you realize the damage this has caused. No I'm not litigious, but you've damn near destroyed me.
SHAME ON YOU..
2. the defendant intentionally and for no legitimate purpose engage in a course of conduct directed at a specific person and knew and reasonably should've known such conduct caused material harm to the mental and emotional health of such person.where such conduct consisted of following, telephoning, and initiate communication and contact with such person and the defendant was previoulsy clearly informed to cease that conduct.
***** There is no way in hell I could do anything to harm another, never mind place a person in fear. Jesus Christ! Again, there was a reason to take to social media,, her assistant vandalized my car. There was no following!! nor telephoning!!, and I did not initiate anything nor contacted. I did of course make comments that according to the Supreme Court do not warrant a crime.
3. the defendant intentionally and repeatedly harassed another person by following such person or about a public place and by engaging in a course of conduct and by repeatedly committing acts which placed such person in reasonable fear of physical injury, the defendant with the intent to harass, annoy and alarm another, engaged in course of conduct which alarmed and seriously annoyed another person and which serve no legitimate purpose.
*****I've never followed anyone, the police are even on record to the fact that I had been working about 5 doors down, and it was honestly coincidental. The only reason I was even at the Starbucks on W10th St. because the WIFI on GREENWICH isn't as good. I have coffee records from the past two years on an ap that can narrate my behavior.. Following??? Jesus Christ. I'm a grown man for Christ sake with 2 little kids at my helm. Who the fuck has time to follow another with 2 kids under 6? Again, I had never followed Brooke- EVER.
SHAME ON YOU ALL WHO OBVIOUSLY DO NOT KNOW THE JOB
It must be truly sad to live in a world you fear. Her husband Chris had told me that Brooke is hyper-vigilant and over-sensitive, It is sad that I am a tell all on line. It is sad that had you were truly had even a second thought of me, you could read about it all on line. We just had a video dialogue about how I became so thankful, what had transpired to inspire me to pay it forward, (Brooke's mom Teri had previously paid it to me.) I am a child advocate. Yes! So if I was already caring for the little ones who are defenseless I'm already a bleeding heart.
You were informed that I was seen walking on w10th St.? Like I have done for 18years now?? I stopped to pause?? You fucking kidding me? I paused? You were informed that I was at Starbucks on the corner of W10 and Hudson? That to me is creepy. What would warrant a surveillance? I run a kids foundation. I dedicate my life to eradicate abuse and to ensure kids are informed to lead their best lives. I am further informed that he told John to say away from me, my home, and my children. This is where we get into crazy. Brooke's crazy. There was nothing warranted to be concerned. I simply defended myself form my car being vandalized. I may have over-reacted but to go to the police in spite after I called her dog walker pissy, well is being vindictive. Had I been a pest, there would've already been a list of actual events- not some made up shit to back-track. The letter I had sent her publicist clearly was used to account for the past instead of actual facts. I had made an intentional mistake about a seating.
Chris Henche and I did not discuss Brooke being afraid, and certainly I evoke no fear or we wouldn't had the conversation we did. In court, Mr. Henche can be cross examined in a way that easily proves it was a man to man talk.
Mr. Zarrarra- the assistant/dog walker had never told me that Brooke expressed fear nor that she was afraid. WHAT did happen was I again was assaulted without warrant nor cause. I made it very clear I had a present Mrs. Shields had given to me. It's obviously a truth because there are many pictures of us all having dinner a long time ago. Where we are seen drinking saki even. It's on line should anyone need proof. I told Brooke that I was a grown man, and laughed about having it. Relayed the story Mrs. Shields had bestowed to me with it, that it was a gift to her friends for attending a birthday party. I also said that I was sorry for her loss of Mrs. Shields dying and that seeing it was her mother's and her daughter Rowan's grandmother I thought she would treasure. Not only because it was her grandmother''s but that it was also of her mom.
There you have it. It's all for a reason to have reached out.. I cannot believe that Sandy Hook hasn't been embraced as I feel it should have. My involving Brooke to the actual memorial and keeping a few teddy bears safe I believed would've wanted her to do all she could. Especially had it not been for Teri and less Brooke, I wouldn't be here. Brooke and I had a discussion a few years back about many things that had happened and she expressed to me with a bit of hostility that her mother kept 'most of all that' from me.' There were letters going back and forth for a couple two three years- Neither I have held onto because, it wasn't real. I do however have every other card from my first girlfriend in the 5th grade.
The other reason to stay present and visible is to get people comfortable with seeing you first. After awhile you have become there neighbor. If this was the case, I would have been going to the W10th St Starbucks for years now instead of months, Again, check my Starbucks app that states when and where I bought coffee for the last 4 years, It's odd that Gerard Butler was really cool with me and we had quite a chat. Jake Gyllenhaal had invited me to sit with his parents to discuss my non-profit.
Celebrity is only good for helping those in need. What they can do in an hour could take me a lifetime. I do not prescribe to celebrity, I actually run from it. I knew Halle Berry when she did her tv show Living Dolls. Had I wanted to be around fame, I would've called her as she had asked after writing her number on her zed card. THAT I KEPT.
The tweets listing her mom as a beacon, myself being a child advocate etc. I have no idea what is wrong with that.
There is also a reference about Rebecca Schaefer because I had spoke of a traumatic event that happened 2 days after my arrival to Los Angels. Rebecca lived across the street on Flores, and her death was one of the reasons I chose to be behind the camera as opposed to the front where you are constantly on display.
To mention I wrote on Twitter that I fell in love on a blue lagoon was not uncommon back then. What prepubescent boy wasn't? I wrote a couple fan letters that came back with notes and messages. This went on for awhile and its why Brooke's mom Teri made her way into our family. She felt the pain and anguish I had hidden. She asked that my folks take better care of me and that I was a fine boy. It turns out many many years later Mrs. Shields' consulted with her Gucci salesman about how she should handle a little boy struggling. I compared it to what my folks discussed and it was head on..
On or around a stage door 10 times. MY my my. I don't remember bringing flowers. But if she can recall 10 times, she would then have remembered something else quite monumental. Brooke lied. In the 20 years I've lived in NY I may have waited after 4x. The 4th was for my birthday which I asked if it was ok seeing I had just seen The Adams Family two weeks prior.. Again, I ask because a lot of my friends are publicists and there are stories that actually are worth the tax payers money to file,
I cannot respond any further. You all are disgusting. I am a child advocate, all I do is dedicated towards this foundation. I'll give you it's kind of crazy that one man thinks he could actually help a nation heal. But, I do.
