This book Raw Deal (cannibal cop) is exceptional well written and fascinating reading. When I first started reading the prologue about Gil I thought you where going to turn out to be a serial killer, a sick pervert, who was a policeman. Then I carried on reading.
Gil starts explaining himself you suddenly you realise this is all fantasy, of fetishes rather disturbing and frightening if followed through BUT THEY WHERE NOT FOLLOWED THROUGH. That was the difference. Everyone is allowed to have thoughts even if we do not agree with each other but when was it a crime to fantasise. ¾ of the world would be locked up if someone could read our fantasy’s.
Yes, you should have told your wife Kathleen & I can understand why she left you as you never really explained your online chats about your fantasies properly before when you had plenty of chances. Secrets will always catch you out in relationships. Putting photos of her online was very wrong on your part (different if you had her permission) and lying to her that you did not put any of Kathleen online is worse but you do not need anyone to tell you that now.
Kathleen’s misguided loyalty with the prosecution makes her just as bad in my eyes as the prosecution Hadassa Waxman, and It is unbelievable the prosecution could lie the way it did and convict Gil Valle.
Gil lost everything / His job, his wife, his daughter but most of all Gil lost his freedom for just HAVING A FETISH and going online chatting to other people. Gil spent 21 months in jail several in solitary confinement.
Gil Valle was lucky he had a good lawyer who believed in him, and the judge who finally exonerated GIL of all charges. Gil has had to do this at a great cost. I think you are very brave telling your story and I wish you well and hope you get compensation for time served. Yes I believe your daughter should read this book when she is older and can understand and make her own mind up. May you be reunited one day.
I read all true crime books and this one will challenge the reader’s beliefs about free speech, the right to privacy. The scary thing is THIS COULD HAPPEN TO ANY OF US
