I am in Oregon, have been trying to get a hold of a Senator…

Customer Question
Dear sir: I...

Dear sir: I am in Oregon, have been trying to get a hold of a Senator Charles Baertschiger, of the Oregon Legislature no luck so far, for the rest of my life I will be trying to change Oregon rape laws, for I am a victim of a brutal rape in 1965, and was not allowed to speak of it, my parents would not allow it. I would like help in changing these laws in this state, however I do not know even where to begin. Could you possibly give me a place to start.

Lawyer's Assistant: Has anything been filed or reported?

I did not report anything until September of this year, because my mom passed away and I now feel free to speak of this rape, it was a gang rape, by a football team, yes I do remember a lot considering.

Lawyer's Assistant: Anything else you want the lawyer to know before I connect you?

Do you want some details?

It worked great. I had the facts and I presented them to my ex-landlord and she folded and returned my deposit. The 50 bucks I spent with you solved my problem.

I am a Cameroon born USA citizen and have lived here since 1990. Cameroon is very repressive, and brutal. You are killed and if femal, raped before being killed if you dare think ket alone express yourself. Currently as I write for 3 days now, I do not know where my family is. Since November last fall that lawyers and teachers asked for improvement, the government sent out its killing machine, the troops and they are brutalizing, raping and killing University Students. You can see pictures of brutality posted on Facebook, YouTube and other sites. Use the keys words "Southern Cameroons ", GhostTowns in Southern Cameroons," Police brutality in Cameroon," La republique of Cameroon," "Human Rights in Cameroon," etc, and you will see some of what I am unable to express here. For three days now, the government has cut of all English Speaking Cameroonians from contact with the rest of the world by cutting off all electrical power, and communication lines including phone and the internet and sent in troops come in from the french speaking majority and they are as I write, systematically killing our people. Another rwanda genocide is underway. my family members are back in Cameroon and I am not sure if they are alive or dead. I have thought and thought , cried and cried and the idea came to get on the internet to see if I can find help, not just for me but for all of us who not knowing where are our families are and also to find out if there is any Civil Rights Attorneys that handles international cases like this. Please, help advise. … read more
