liar #2 steps up to the plate!, April 24, 2013

This review is from: Identifying and Treating Sex Offenders: Current Approaches, Research, and Techniques (Journal of Child Sexual Abuse Monographic “Separates”) (Paperback)

How sad that you are willing to ruin your career just to lie for a murderer, same as your friend Laviolette. So sad for true victims of DV.

 

Please look very, very closely at Robert Geffner, April 23, 2013

This review is from: Identifying and Treating Sex Offenders: Current Approaches, Research, and Techniques (Journal of Child Sexual Abuse Monographic “Separates”) (Paperback)

I believe everyone should read this book, and every book by Geffner, and closely examine the entire body of work and entire career of Geffner and of all of his close collaborators. I believe that what we will find will open our eyes.

In the footnotes on Page 13 of the Summary Judgment in favor of plaintiffs in Morris vs. Dearborne:

“17. The child was made to play a game where she was given points for circling the words “f* *k” and “p*n*s;” however, she was never able to do so without prompting. Additionally, Goforth asked the child to draw “lick p*n*s” and “f* *k” and even asked the child to “show [her] how to f* *k.” These counseling sessions took place under the supervision of GEFFNER, through CTPS.

You sir,and I use that term loosely, are nothing more than a PROVEN hired gun. Your co-hort Alyce, clearly failed at her attempt to convince anyone, much less a jury, that the defendant has been a victim of domestic violence and is really nothing more than a cold blooded murdered, so now you’re going to throw your hat in the ring, try to cash in on some of the money the tax payers of Arizona are dishing out, and it’s just plain disgusting. You are a hypocrite, willing to put your name on something you know nothing about. How many hours did YOU spend with the killer? 60, 80? More? How did your testimony work for Mrs. O’Rourke? Oh, that’s right, you never even interviewed the ex-husband. You took what was obviously, a very sick woman’s word for what she said happened and you were called out by every judge and every courtroom you entered because you are in fact, a hired gun. You’ll say whatever the highest bidder asks you to say and you’ve been found out. Good luck. You’re going to need it. Perhaps your time would be better spent buying Jodi some self-help books, or magazines that she can try to sneak out of prison with her sick notes written in them. You are GROSS!

 

1.0 out of 5 stars HOW COULD ANYONE IN THEIR RIGHT MIND EVEN CONSIDER READING THIS BOOK?, April 26, 2013

This review is from: Identifying and Treating Sex Offenders: Current Approaches, Research, and Techniques (Journal of Child Sexual Abuse Monographic “Separates”) (Paperback)

I have not read this book, nor would I ever even consider doing so. Any “Dr.” in their right mind who would aid in a Death Penalty Murder Trial such as the one Dr. Geffner is about to lend himself to, has no merit or intelligence in my opinion. Jodi Arias is a pathological liar and cold-blooded murderer, and how you could think otherwise is beyond me. I guess people would do almost anything for the almighty buck. So sad.

 

1.0 out of 5 stars LaViolette’s Cohort Conveniently Republishes & Testifies April 22, 2013

By susan ann westphal

Format:Kindle Edition

What is with these greedy authors republishing their overpriced, outdated books to coincide with their biased testimony in high profile trials? If they were testifying to help CONVICT Domestic Violence perpetrators instead of helping them towards acquittal, they’d be more credible, reputable & revered. If Geffner & LaViolette are so hungry for DV perpetrators to study & counsel, they should contribute to their incarcerations and then go visit them in prison. Or, maybe they WANT more victims just to validate their own existence and ensure job security for themselves?? Pathetic!

 

LaViolette = Regret?

I was thinking about how many people Arias has managed to throw under the bus and after hearing about Ms. Alyce LaViolette’s (the defense expert currently on the stand in the Jodi Arias murder trial) speaking engagement being cancelled in Long Beach yesterday I thought I would check out the review of her book on Amazon. It is called “It Could Happen To Anyone: Why Battered Women Stay” (2nd edition) Here are a few of the Amazon Reviews:

 

1.  This is one of the nicer ones:

 

1.0 out of 5 stars Don’t waste your money on this garbage., April 5, 2013

By 

L.RossiSee all my reviews

This review is from: It Could Happen To Anyone: Why Battered Women Stay (Paperback)

“Read this book if you want to send your life in downward spiral – the book reeks of hostility to men, and you will be trapped in your fear and loneliness forever. Author of the book is so obviously outdated in her knowledge of what it takes for a woman to survive in 2013, I wonder if she still lives in the 70s. She states rather obvious facts, but does not offer any solution for those who are trapped in abusive situation or those survivors of domestic violence who learning how to heal their life . Don’t waste your money. Look at the books by Lundy Bancroft or Edward Kubany instead.

By the way, Ms. LaViolette cashed on the bloody murder, and her professional opinion is for sale. She collaborates with attorney who is specializing in defending child molesters and rapists – how is THAT for domestic violence advocate?”

 

2. Here’s one from someone who actually read the book:

 

1.0 out of 5 stars Devastating, April 5, 2013

By 

Cooper (San Diego, California) – See all my reviews

This review is from: It Could Happen To Anyone: Why Battered Women Stay (Paperback)

“After I read this book, it made me feel like I was the victim, I had to be put on a 72 hour hold because my psychologist thought I was suicidal she advised me that Alyce LaViolette is very manipulative and has a reputation of being a controller.”

 

3. And from someone following the Arias trial:

 

1.0 out of 5 stars The get away with man murder Manuel!, April 6, 2013

Malissa WilliamsSee all my reviews

This review is from: It Could Happen To Anyone: Why Battered Women Stay (Paperback)

“Great book for anyone planning to murder the man in her life!! What? That a**-hole is a FLIRT???? And he LIED about his level of sexual experience????? Well that pig just deserves to be stabbed 27 times, have his throat cut to the spine, and because he also call you a crazy, evil, sociopath ( hmmmmm…) go ahead and cap him in rhe face with a 25. Yep, then call Ms. Alyce Laviolette! If you have $300.00 per hour ( and beware, she is long winded and LOVES, to tell story’s) she will tell the world why that “terrorist” had it comin! Oh, and if that jerk in your life had a less than perfect childhood, and you were ever whacked by a spoon , well girl, you’re as good as innocent!”

 

I would feel sorry for this woman but she accepted the job of supporting a violent stalker/ murderess without giving any credence to the other side of the story.  As of this writing there are 403 one star reviews (the lowest you can give) and only 17 five star reviews (the highest). There is no option for zero stars, by the way.
