My greatest psychopathy teacher

She gave me psychopathy’s family jewels.  That psychopaths had self knowledge and a group identity.  Even more importantly, that they backed each other up versus the empath world.  And finally, that their self control is actually very difficult, appearing normal is an effort.

I was called into Lehman HR by this SVP and a manager (this manager was a male lover I believe of the blackmailing psychopathic Don Juan/Dress Grey rapist whom they were seeking to protect).  They stated that my assignment at the firm was being canceled due to my handing out to friends 8-10 cut and paste sheets from Cleckley’s Mask of Sanity and Hare’s Without Conscience.  She kept saying they were sexually inappropriate. ‘But I deleted all sexual behaviors and crimes, that’s why they are cut and pastes, not straight copies,’ I said.  She just repeated the same thing again.  Her superiors wouldn’t look over her shoulder, that’s the corporate chain of command. The truth didn’t matter and there is no appeal or promise of fair play or due process in corporations.  Then when I said, against her protestations that she didn’t need to know, that I was giving them out due to the presence of a psychopathic co-worker (mentioned above), she started screaming, “WE HAVE 150,000 EMPLOYEES, OF COURSE LEHMAN HAS PSYCHOPATHIC EMPLOYEES!!”  Then she immediately and visibly calmed herself down and regained her self composure.

After leaving friends told me of rumors following my exit.  It was practically a novella. Made up out of whole cloth, not even based/exaggerated on/from something real. The only truthful elements were getting my name and a few other co-workers’ names right.  These were co-workers whom I had never interacted with off-premises.  But the novella had all kinds of goings on and involvement of outside players.

She denied any knowledge of the source of these rumors.  But I imagine the source was the Lehman HR department, from my experience with psychopathic HR departments in various Wall St. firms.  Destroying exited co-workers’ reputations is something they all do all the time, this was just more extreme.  At HR conventions, they must sit around bragging about their lies, comparing notes and refining strategies, just as psychopaths and con artists do.

I couldn’t find a lawyer who thought we could trace down the vaguely sourced campaign of lies or win an appreciable amount of money.  I should have filed a John Doe case pro se, at least as a record if I couldn’t build a case.  I settled for sending a truthful accounting to my personal friends and all the co-workers listed in the company address book.

The novella was incredibly detailed.  Perhaps that’s a standard psychopathic character assassination campaign strategy. Normal people probably just can’t imagine that such a detailed account could be a lie.  Of course, this is because they couldn’t imagine doing it themselves.  That’s part of the naive prey response syndrome, people still try to understand psychopaths from their own viewpoint, not understanding that they need to step out of their own world to understand psychopaths’ motives and to recognize them.  Finally, most of us are not only naive prey to psychopaths, but naive prey to evil.

FOILed by Jonathan David

Why does this person still have a job?  I wrote a request for all records pertaining to myself under the New York FOIL law and have received two woefully incomplete (obviously and ridiculously incomplete) responses.  The second response was an appeal from the first response.  Jonathon David now informs me that my only recourse left is to bring a Article 78 proceeding in court, i.e., to sue them.   So, . . . the NYPD has to be forced to obey the law?  When the law is very clear?  This apparently happens all the time (see articles referenced below).  Why haven’t the courts slapped them down.  Courts usually don’t like being bothered with matters that could and should have been handled adminstratively.

Whenever there is a problem of a culture gone bad in an organization, the first targets are logically the exemplars, the public standard bearers of that faulty culture.  Here in NYC we have a police culture of arrogance and individuals seemingly believing that not only are they above the law, that they are the law.  Jonathan David and his office carries out that behavior in broad daylight.  He should be fired and the office reorganized.

Please don’t think this is my personal opinion/problem.  The NYPD Legal Dept. is quite famous.  Amazingly they claimed the Freedom of Information Law didn’t apply to the FOIL process itself.  .  .  .  Huh???

From The Village Voice’s The NYPD’s a Little Confused About How the Freedom of Information Law Works:

Since late last year, MuckRock reporter Shawn Musgrave had been trying to get the NYPD to release “any manual, training reference, or other guide” explaining how the department processes freedom of information requests. The cops had refused the request though, arguing — with a deeply symbolic bit of circular logic — that the freedom of information procedures themselves weren’t subject to New York’s Freedom of Information Law.

. . . . NYPD received jabs from outlets far and wide because, really, dashing off a post about the whole FOIL mobius strip was too good to pass up. FOIL policies exempt from FOIL? Blog and blog.

While it’s unusual for FOIL officers to talk publicly about individual requests, Jonathan David, the attorney charged with answering Musgrave’s letters, tells the Voice the whole thing was really a misunderstanding. In his view, the patrol guide, which contains pretty limited FOIL discussion, didn’t qualify as a training manual.

Come on.  Our tax money goes to these people?  “Training manual”?  Nice little trick, selective memory.

NYPD Rejects Freedom Of Information Law Request For Their Freedom Of Information Law Handbook

. . . But this latest rejection is for the exact guidelines that spell out which records must be released and which can be withheld from the public. Few documents are better suited for release under the Freedom of Information Law than a freedom of information handbook.  http://gothamist.com/2014/03/21/nypd_transparency.php

NYPD has a freedom of information handbook, after all

The NYPD does, in fact, have a Freedom of Information Law guide. Someone tell its Freedom of Information Law unit, which for months has denied emphatically that any such document exists.  https://www.muckrock.com/news/archives/2014/jul/02/nypd-has-freedom-information-handbook-after-all/

I’m quite aware that many of my readers disagree/disapprove of my listen-to-the-force-luke-skywalker/let your subconscious be your guide approach to recognizing psychopathy.  A more objective approach is to pay attention to thinking patterns, psychopathic arrogance and  types of lies as avenues to recognizing psychopaths.  Psychopaths love to turn situations on their head — such as, FOILs don’t apply to FOILs (it’s called the ‘180 Rule’ – http://180rule.com/psychopaths-girardian-theory-the-180-rule/).  That’s also a pre-logical thinking pattern, another trait of psychopaths.  It is also very arrogant.  If my services had been hired, I would have started with those NYPD positions that have the capability of protecting other psychopaths within the force.

Back to my situation, my original request asked that the psychopathic NYPD police officer (identified by his DPL/DPA license plate numbers which I had learned through their harassment of me over the years) I have referenced elsewhere not be allowed to play a part in deciding what to release or not.  (See, To the de Blasio administration, I hereby volunteer to identify NYPD whiteshirt psychopaths, gratis, Is there a ‘Training Day’ crew in the NYPD and are they targetting me?, and other posts tagged NYPD.)   The first response included only a traffic ticket and a complaint that I had filed that didn’t involve him or my ex.  Clever, very clever.  He couldn’t have done better if he had chosen himself.  While the complaint didn’t involve them, at the time I though it might and thus I referenced other complaints I had made about telephone harassment.  Obviously these should have been, and were included in the second response.  However the source/telephone numbers of that harassment was not included (which a detective had in fact given me originally, so they do have them).

Also unincluded were files regarding the time I was served by the police and my ex with papers to appear at mediation, or complaints that she mentioned having filed prior to that mediation (which I was not aware of her having done).  It is patently ridiculous that these not be included (non essential material could be redacted of course).  I’m not that interested in this material, these events were some 20 years ago, but obviously any complete file would include them.  Further there was nothing indicating why extremely hostile (and apparently disgusted??) auxiliary cops were posted at my corner and armed cops at the therapists’ corner for weeks in 2011.  Nor was there anything referencing any political activism on my part.

I was told that requests had to include the when and the where — in other words one can only ask about material that one already knows about.  You can’t even ask if there are any unknown complaints filed against you because if they are unknown you don’t know enough to ask for them!!  Sounds like the 180-Rule to me.

My goal with the FOIL was hopefully to find out the character assassination/whispering campaign that my ex and her cop friends seem to be the font of.  It is taken very seriously, scares people and has caused many to turn their face to the wall rather than give a friendly hello as they had done for years (inducing ‘refusal to associate’ is a crime).  More later.

Psychopathic character assassination and murder-by-suicide as depicted in Orwell’s Burmese Days

Burmese Days becomes a perfect description of psychopathic strategizing once ‘psychopath’ or ‘nonempath’ are substituted for ‘Oriental’ and ’empath’ or ‘normy’ for ‘European’ in the following extracts as appropriate.  (Ctrl + in many browsers will zoom in.)

A key to such a campaign is U Po Kyin’s statement, “There must be no accusations that can be answered“.

No empath cares anything about proofs“.

August 10, 2015:  I am simply stunned that no one has ever communicated the character assassination allegations against myself.  I once offered a woman who, from one day to the next, turned her head to the wall rather than say hello to me (and we had been workplace friends for years – this pattern happened repeatedly but slowly over the years, the psychopathic perp couldn’t risk my inner circle telling me), a hundred dollars if she (or her husband if she preferred) would tell me the whyfor.  Plenty of people who know me read this blog.  Comments can be totally anonymous.  There is no need to fill out any identifying field.  Further to protect their IP address, if desired, anyone can simply go to a copy center or internet cafe.  Comments are moderated so it is a private communication.  If preferred there are also many free and anonymous email account providers.  I just don’t get it. Where’s the downside? I would help and have helped others in similar situations.

From Country of Liars: Character Assassination

From the comments:

Becca:

I am so sad that my world of associates continues to dwindle because of the subtle words, set ups and comparisons to unlikable TV/Movie characters that my soon to be ex husband continues to make about me when around others.

He trashed my reputation to such lengths that I don’t even know where to even begin to try and 1) show these people that I am not the person he is making me out to be.  . . .

I would appreciate something that may work. His behaviors and tall tales are also having an effect on my son’s social life too. I am an attractive person, a caring nice person, have always been popular and well liked. People that don’t have any idea who I am hate me because of my ex husband. He has done this to me even before we were divorcing. But now it has begun and taken hold in my new town and school district. What can I do? Something please !

Larry:

@ Becca …

I know the sadness all too well. I only know a fraction of what has been said about my life and character, but those who do know the lies will never tell. I came to the conclusion after believing I could spread the truth about me that it was all too late. Those people, even family members, didn’t want to listen to me. In the eyes of many, I am an true outcast.

I eventually came to terms with what I was faced with, and instead of taking the route of continually being so depressed and not achieving anything positive, I accepted I had to let go, and erase them from my life. That included my two daughters.

In my experience, I’ve never heard a victim turn things around, though I would hope it’s happened. That has the effect of taking you down, but do not let it. Come to peace with your life and future, and the new people you will meet.

Well that’s depressing.  Why are these character assassinations so believed, that the victim himself is never told the accusations?  Amazing.  The effects are not small, the victim’s life is absolutely devastated.

From another comment, David:

Believe me moving away does not help to much, because I believe what people go through you still live with it. I to have the same problem. The whole thing of just turning off. When I wake up everything that has happened to me starts all over again. I think about it every moment. I make bad decisions because of what’s on my mind. There are times, when I too can’t get a breath in.

It not only extends through every moment of the victim’s life, but extends outward.  The victim’s stress is brought home to their family.  Marriages founder.  Divorces result.  The victim’s preoccupation (or spreading cancer of anxiety) distorts the victim’s judgement, and causes the victim to miss cues from others, sometimes important ones.  Sleep is hard, activated anxiety centers never go to sleep.

Imagine what Becca must have felt in her new town as she felt it all happening again.  Her silent screams as though she were on thin ice watching the cracks seek her out, following her from her past locations, powerless to affect or stop them.  Or perhaps she felt she was being pursued by ghosts that could strike her at will, but that she could neither see nor defend against.

We are all social animals.  We need secure communities of friends and believe we have them.  Victims of psychopathic character assassination know that is not true.  For them, what was once solid ground becomes a thin crust over a sea of acid.  They never know when a footfall will break through.

It should be pointed out that the psychopath’s aim is murder, murder by suicide.

The daisy chain of evil has to be broken.  Or perhaps a better metaphor would be the paper cutout doll chain needs to be broken lest it unfold into infinity, damaging all it touches.

But no one helps.  The psychopath’s whispering campaign is absolutely and totally believed.  The victim is almost never even told, ‘the word on the street about you is . . . ., thought you should know.’  Sad.
