Note from Amy: The comment below is referring to the following post that Brent Brents wrote about one book review of Diary of a Predator: A Memoir.
You know Some people out there Amy really don’t understand violence. Their lives are clean. The girl who wrote the review in the Daily Camera probably is one of those people. I’m glad for her. But sad to.
I think sometimes people need to know the reality. It sounds like you accomplished that in the book. -Brent Brents
And today I received this comment to the website:
Hi Amy & Brent:
The line from the article you linked that reads “when Herdy gives the perpetrator a voice, it feels wrong” is what is so wrong. If we don’t listen to what violent people say, how the hell are we ever gonna fix the problem? Seems like a no-brainer, but the dominant euro-christian culture is hellbent on the cancers of judgment/shame/blame and as long as that’s where the energy goes, change will not happen.
