URGENT UPDATE; The Level of Sadism

Dear Member,

In our previous post; THE LEVEL OF SADISM dated 23rd August 2009, we focused on Jasmine Fiore’s death and the primary suspect, her ex-husband, Ryan Alexander Jenkins, who was thought to have fled the US to Canada.

Then we’d promised to bring you detailed update about the outcome.

On 23rd August, 2009, which coincidentally was the same day we posted this incident, Ryan Alexander Jenkins was found dead in Thunder Bird motel room in Hope, the community east of Chilliwack.

It was concluded to be apparent suicide as he used his own belt to take his life.  Thus the case of Jasmine Fiore was left aside and perhaps forgotten.

Does this means that Jenkins had paid for his action by taking his own life? Or was it out of shame he did this?

It was thought Jenkins was too ashamed for killing his ex-wife and he could not bear the consequences, thus resulting in suicide. We believed Jenkins was a coward.

No matter what happened to Jenkins, we the HELP THE PUNCHING BAG team is more concerned about the tragic loss of Jasmine Fiore’s life.

Today, she’d be alive, busy with her job, smiling as usual and trying to make life better for her world.

But today, Jasmine is gone! We don’t want to forget her because we believe her memory will help us to warn other women out there of the danger in quick marriage and influences.

Help us today to keep on spreading the word. No woman deserves death by domestic violence. We don’t want the burial of another woman, which may come as result of violence and abuse.

No woman is a punching bag.

Every woman on planet earth deserves the right to liberty, to love, to freedom of expression and to the best of life.  

Many thanks

EVERY WOMAN

At the Sanskriti Kendra Artist-in-Residence I am currently undergoing, as a group, we had so much to talk about. Since the location is in India, the major discussion we had since the few days has been about thre place of a woman.

We tried to compare the woman in Asia with her counterpart both in Africa and Europe. We came almost to the same conclusion. Every woman demands a change. When a woman is not valued within her home and her small world, how will she be able to develop her abilities?

If a woman does not have any form of education, what will she contribute to her next generation of women coming?

When a woman goes through violence and maltreatment in the hands of those she loves and trusts, what is left of her confidence?

Every woman is human. She wants to express her feelings, her love and affection. She needs to do this with the support of her people, her family and her home.

A woman shows her values when she gives grace to her world, to her society and to humans.

The position of a woman must be held in awesome.

Every girl-child, every young female, every single lady, every mothers, every grandmothers, every mother-in-law, every step-mother, and every foster-mother deserves a BETTER WORLD without VIOLENCE
