    So, people want to know part 2.

    I guess I'm willing to share it now. So we met up, we grew closer, but I noticed that he had started to change. He was very manipulative, and whenever I'd catch him lying and try to leave he would get violent or he would hurt himself. It was terrifying for me, and this went on...

    a Federal Correction officer. Slapped in the face by this monster who is 260 pounds. He claimed that there were no marks on my face so he did not hit me. He was not arrested. How can he get away with hitting a woman and lying about it?
