I was falsely imprisoned by campus police at the library on the campus of Bridgewater State College on April 15, 2004, but it wasn't until August 2004 that I first viewed the spurious profile created by Dr. Grace Seibert-Larke. At that time, Dr. Seibert-Larke was a psychologist at the Bridgewater State College Counseling Center. The shocking revelations of the doctor’s bias against my military service, as well as her religious bigotry, changed my life in ways I’d never dreamed possible or necessary.
The campaign of character assassination began just weeks before my civil rights were violated by campus authorities at Bridgewater State. The most harmful slanders Dr. Seibert-Larke and other campus officials used against me were derived from misinformation about my military service and ugly, pervasive stereotypes about men and women who’ve served our nation faithfully and with honor.
While I waited for campus authorities to act on my behalf, which they never did, I took solace in writing short stories and blogging. The short stories were never released but, strangely enough, my initial attempts at blogging became a source of entertainment for others and myself. I chose to compose music, build websites and write my stories in order to transform what was once mausoleum of memories into a creative outlet and a source of much happiness.
