When Abuse Comes to My Door

leave a comment »

Alas, Joey St. Hubert came pounding on my door and scared Darla and his daughters. I would not open the door to a man who I could hear from 100 feet away screaming into his cellphone. I would not open the door to the pounding fist of an out of control man on a mission to establish dominance.

My friend asked me to grab her daughter from school, so I did. Her 9 yr old daughter walked into my house 5 minutes later – and when I asked where her mom was, she said her Dad got her from school so she came to get her baby sister.

Unattended minors? No. I got no call or text from Dad, just this child at my door. I texted their mom a invited them o wait together for her to arrive. The girls were playing in the garage so I opened the 2 car garage door for several minutes and then closed it because in my HOA, 10 minutes is all First Service Residential will allow.

Sometime later I hear the yelling, then there is pounding. It Mr. Saint Hubert. I checked on the girls and they don’t want to go with Dad. They looked scared.

So I called Mom and texted her: she is 5 minutes away. I can hear their entire conversation through my front door. He is talking about her boyfriend, saying she doesn’t respect him as a man, as a father, and he will teach her about respecting him.

I text Dad that I’m scared and won’t open the door to someone who is pounding and yelling.

I call HOA security to remove him from my property. He won’t leave.

It isn’t his weekend to have the girls and neither wants to go to him. I have a reasonable expectation that he is dangerous.

I tell him I will call the police and he said he will call. Cool. Buddy, I wish you would.

1. It is the LAPD Foothill division. I have a better chance of finding Waldo than a police officer.

2. I’m not in the wrong.

3. I know for a fact: the police here NEVER answer their phone.

Finally, Mom makes it to my house and the security guard splits. And then this video happens.

This is only a snippet of him. Would you put little kids in his care?

This is what abusive behavior is. I’m standing with his ex and his daughters.

Domestic Violence is tactics of power and control.

So now Darla doesn’t feel safe in the house. Poor kid.

I took her over to the police station and they would not do a report, only promised to drive by before 11. The desk officer was a gem, was nothing ce to me and to Darla and gave her baseball cards and a book : but would NOT take a report on a man who promised to “F” me up and more.

He doesn’t want to see any texts from Dad, doesn’t want to see the videos, and says to call 911 in the future.

So thanks everyone, from First Service Residential, Pacoima LAPD Foothill Division and most of all Joey for making my 8 yr old cry and fearful.

Get it together.
