My Local Domestic Violence Shelter, Quanada, Has Blocked Me on Facebook

Featured

I’m not sure exactly what I did to warrant it, though I’m certain I’ve never ‘harassed’ anyone on their site. My local Domestic Violence shelter is pretty selective about which women’s opinions it wants on its site.  The most I’ve ever done was constructively criticize their position on how they portray Domestic Violence. Often it’s females as victims and males as perpetrators. I’ve been vocal of the way they’ve stereotype and attached gender to Domestic Violence roles. So I do like to occasionally go to their Facebook page and read some of their content to comment. However, the other day was different.

I noticed, initially when I had attempted to comment on one of their articles, and I had no option to reply. It had been months since I had even visited the site. So why had I even been blocked? I haven’t done anything to them, anything that is, except being an open critic of the facility. Even then, it had been over five months since I had even engaged or mentioned their name. So they either targeted me and did it without me knowing, or I’ve been blocked for awhile.

When I checked to see if I sent them any emails, I found that my outbox was completely empty. I had not sent them anything directly to warrant a block. A matter of fact, I hadn’t sent them anything on their inbox an ALL.

I wanted to make certain that I was blocked. So I looked through my boyfriend’s account, he was allowed to reply and comment. It seemed that I really was put in a situation where I was targeted and silenced.

The point is, this facility receives public funding and is a non-profit, taxpayer funded organization. Is it even allowed to block one of its critics if they’re not harassing them? If they did not block me for criticizing them, are they allowed to block me for no reason at all? I would say NOT. I know for a fact that part of my own taxes go to this group and I should not be silenced for doing NOTHING wrong.

Whatever I allegedly did, I didn’t even receive a Facebook ban for, that’s how pitiful it probably was.

Steve Ybarra’s Story, Domestic Violence

WARNING: THE FOLLOWING CONTENT MAY BE DISTURBING TO SOME

Steve Ybarra is a Mexican-American man in his thirties who is going through a Domestic Violence situation with his ex, Michelle Ybarra. According to documentation through video, pictures, and witness testimony, Steve Ybarra has been a victim of his abuser for the past three years of their marriage. He is currently in the middle of a divorce and is in the middle of a custody battle of their young son, Leo.


Due to the video being so long, I’m writing out Ybarra’s story. You can watch the full video at the Bottom but it is long and the Microphone STINKS!


Ybarra got married to Michelle, who already had a child from a previous relationship. They were married for a little over three years, during at which time, his friend was telling him he was being abused. It took some time for him to believe it, but over a course of years, with consistent fits and bursts of anger he was convinced.

He eventually began documenting her outrageous behavior through time. He would get extreme over reactions. Being that he is five foot eleven and nearly pure muscle, why would he have anything to fear? During their arguments, he said that she would take both the children and leave, no matter what the whether was like. Taking a baby, barely a year old, can be hazardous to their health if not properly heated.  Making things over dramatic, when they clearly didn’t have to be.

They hit rock bottom at one point, they became homeless and were allegedly living in a hotel where Ybarra decided to take their son and move in with a friend in Quincy Illinois. Michelle filed for divorce and claimed he was cheating on her. In her statement she claimed that he was prostituting himself, he allows his son to play with guns, she isn’t comfortable with him being around his father, and that there are pictures pinned to the court document of pictures he sent to her via text message.

Picture Attached To Michelle’s Court Statement Allegedly Received Via Text Without Her Present

It was revealed that Michelle was lying, and not only did she not receive the pictures via text message, but the content didn’t come from a picture at all. The picture that was included was an edited screen shot of a video clip. There were no guns included in the clip and they were merely parts of guns. Michelle claimed to have disapproved of her son playing with the gun parts, but conveniently failed to mention she had cropped herself out of the photo she had provided as evidence. Notice, in the following picture the open screen marked “properties” the date of ‘5/31/2018’, Steve left June 11, 2018. The woman in the picture, is none other than Michelle Ybarra.

Tampering with evidence is obstruction of Justice and is FELONY in Illinois!

Steve also held three jobs in Quincy at the time of his alleged prostitution. Two of them, at night and another at all hours, giving him no real opportunity. Just a thought, you can’t claim someone is cheating on you, then claim they’re out prostituting themselves, people who cheat have money already and people who prostitute don’t need three jobs.

Michelle is psychologically disturbed:

 

 

 

Verbally Abusive to Children

 

 

 

 

Racially Discriminatory (you have to turn this one up it’s hard to hear)

 

 

 

 

Then Turns to Physical Assault

Why does this matter? He’s big enough to defend himself!

She BROKE THE LAW! She needs to be PUNISHED he should be treated with just as much respect as any other victim of abuse; he respected her in the fact that he didn’t knock her out.
