Viewer: Acts Were Monstrous, He Is Not

Dear Amy:

My name is Natasha and I just finished watching ‘On the Case with Paula Zahn’ about the Brents story and had to look you up because you’re awesome, and you need to be thanked on behalf of society for being an exceptional human being who obviously genuinely cares & wants to make this diseased culture healthier.

I am currently studying for my Master of Arts in Counseling Psychology and have had a particular interest in sexual predators for years.  I come at it from a similar place that you do — your answers to Paula Zahn’s questions were almost verbatim what mine were when I was talking back to the TV.  I am very excited to order your book (Diary of a Predator: A Memoir) from Amazon (I live in Canada) and learning more about this CRITICAL work you have done with/about Brents, and I hope people will suspend their judgment and really try to understand how sadists are created because this is the ONLY way we can put an end to this kind of suffering.

Next time you write to Brents, can you please thank him for letting the public into his  life through you, and let him know that there are others who empathize with him and agree with you that his acts were monstrous, but he was/is not?  Thank you.

Sincerely & Respectfully,
