On Tuesday evening this video was posted to Facebook via a page that has been recently created as an outlet for misinformation and gossip about my family.
This is the you tube link. No shame in sharing. Have fun.
The page stated their video shows
1. A customer bolting away
2. Joe actively stalking V/E
3. The children clearly being neglected, no care at home
4. The county’s utter and complete failure to uphold law, and their gross incompetence.
I have to agree with #4. But I’ve been talking about the failure and incompetence of law enforcement for years. This isn’t a new revaluation for me.
But let’s discuss the video and the first 3 claims, which are blatantly false.
There is a back story here which will be told in another post. But since 12/22/16 this man, William “Eric” Martin, has made numerous threats against my husband because of an incident earlier that day, which involved a few curse words. My husband was advised to fill out an IPO on Mr. Martin. The video is the business neighbors documenting the IPO being served.
The video starts with the basics. The officer reads the IPO to Mr. Martin. After the officer informs him of the 500ft they begin down the road of misinformation. They tell the officer that they feel Joe is lying about his role in our business and that he is lying to the state about his income to avoid child support. In this same breath he claims to be owner of his business. I’m not going to argue his role, but he and Mrs. Smith-Adams are not legally married and based on a search the business is assumed, not confirmed, to be a sole prop. My business is an LLC. We are legally married. Not that any of that matters, but it was addressed in their video so I wanted to clarify. I don’t think any party has more of a right to be in their business than another. We filed the IPO to protect ourselves. Not to cause anyone else harm. That was just an unfortunate consequence.
She then accuses my husband of grabbing his genitals and filming her. This isn’t so. I can’t prove a negative, this will have to be taken on our word. Regarding filming, we don’t film her store, we record when people act against us. She claims I follow her all over social media. I do not. I keep up with the FB pages and websites that target my family. She happens to now be posting on those pages. If she posts elsewhere online, I have no clue. But I am aware of her posts on those pages. I have never contacted any of her children, family, friends or clients or anyone else associated with her.
She claims her daughter is in counciling due to “these sons of bitches” -his words. I’m not going to minimize or assume anything about her child’s mental health. But if a 30 second argument led this child to counciling, stop and think about what the behavior of this mob has done to my children for the last 21 months. Thankfully they are strong children who aren’t dealing with other issues such as being a child of divorce and parental alienation. I know nothing of the circumstances but the child is not living with both bio patents and that is hard in any child. I do not appreciate being a scapegoat for this. It’s not fair to put all that weight on us.
The “customer” she refers to walking up, is a business owner in the plaza who goes to the hair salon next door to her shop to buy sodas from their vending machine. Later in the video she says “did you see my customer leave, it happens a lot.” He wasn’t a customer, he was a neighbor. We have never caused a customer to leave her store. We have never disturbed her business. Aside from the week or so she opened up and the 30 or so seconds on 12/22, we have never been to her store. When I walk to other business in the plaza, I walk down the middle of the parking lot.
At this moment my husband pulls up, and they accuse him of stalking, screaming that he was video taping. Considering my husband was in the driver side of the vehicle driving, no stopping, I’m not sure how he could be taping inside her store. She then tells the officer my son is on probation in another county, then says he was charged with pointing a fire arm at somebody. My son is not on probation and has yet to have a court date. The alegations are based on an afadavit that conflicts with another affidavit, 2 audio recordings, and 2 separate 911 calls. But this woman who knows nothing of my family, is now pushung this info as if she is informed.
He says we’ve made so many ridiculous allegations. We have not made any allegations that we have not documented. Everything we have said they have done, we have proof of. She then brings up our March 14th court date. It’s not family court, but how would she have memorized our court date for a loose horse? Why would she know that date off her head?
I cant quite understand them talking over each other, but they said something about my husband working or not working and claims my husband has child support warrants, possibly felony. This is total bullcrap. My husband has no active warrants and makes his arrearage payments and has been for years. This is just more testimony to the gossip these people use to discredit my family and justify their aggression towards us. Otherwise why even bring it up? Then they get into who is watching our children. Then talks about how we have no lights, no water. We have lights and water but they pretend we don’t. Who’s at home right now with 10 children?
Well, no one was. My children are sitting in that van or are inside the business. Our 10 minor children were with us that day… laundry day… see the shop towels. With a grooming salon and 10 wild free range homestead living unschooling children we do a lot of laundry. And with the local laundromat we can do a weeks worth of laundry in an hour or so and for under $40. So that’s what we do.
So now they are back to my 16 year old, and obsessing again about who is watching my children. As if it’s actually their concern. I have 2 minor children and one adult child old enough to baby sit (boy that’s strange to write, I have an adult child) anyhow we are more than capable of providing proper supervision for our family. Then she goes into the open CPS case. Again, as if any of this has anything to do with the fact an IPO was just served to Mr. Martin. But she goes on about how we got a GFM. And then the officer talking what they just said, assumes the tables are turned. So these people sit there and tell a half sided story of our lives, then try to convince him they are the ones being stalked. After this video they went and filed reciprocating IPOs. That same day, after the video Mrs Smith/Adams posted of them keeping their eye on the target and her tagging my business page, I filed an IPO on her. The time stamp on the IPOs were an hour apart, tho it took two days for them to serve her as she was not at her business even tho she was legally allowed to be, and I have no idea of her home address nor do I want that information, so it was not listed on the report.
Now onto the audio. This is a two hour podcast they did on February 10, 2016. The threats they have made in this podcast are what prompted my husband to file an IPO on Mr. Martin. Mr. Martin confesses in this podcast that he followed my husband to court to fuck with his head. His intent was to intimidate, harass, annoy, or alarm another person by (d) Follows a person in or about a public place or places; (e) Engages in a course of conduct or repeatedly commits acts which alarm or seriously annoy such other person and which serve no legitimate purpose; AND A person is guilty of stalking in the second degree when he intentionally: (a) Stalks another person; and (b) Makes an explicit or implicit threat with the intent to place that person in reasonable fear of: 1. Sexual contact as defined in KRS 510.010; 2. Physical injury; or 3. Death.—- Considering the collection of explicit and implicit threats towards my husband, he was in reasonable and justifiable fear of Mr. Martin and his potential to “teach my husband a lesson”. While the local authorities might brush this off, we take it very seriously.
These podcasts are difficult to use and just as difficult to listen to. I’ve not listened to more than a few minutes of a previous podcast with a prior employer so when I had to sit through all two hours of this for our case was mind numbing. But its here if you want to listen. I won’t waste any more of my time explaining their nonsense. If you have any questions you can leave them in the comments.
