Amber: Jimmy is one of those kind of people that wants to stay up your ass so you can’t tell nobody he’s been beating on you. One day, he left me alone with Trevor [newly found brother] and I told him what Jimmy’d been doin’. Trevor said, tomorrow we’re gonna pack your stuff up and get you out of here.
We packed everything up the next morning and took a bus to downtown Macon. Jimmy found us downtown, by the medical center, and Trevor told him that we were done. He said to Jimmy “She don’t like you. She don’t love you. The only reason that she’s been with you that long is cause she’s scared of you. She done told me what you’ve done to her and my nephews."
See, Jimmy was the reason that I lost both my kids. Cause he was abusive. What nobody understood was that I just couldn’t pick up and leave. He was always there. He always said that the only way we’d be apart is death and he told that if I ever called the cops again, he’d kill me before they showed up. He kept my I.D. and my food stamp card so I couldn’t go nowhere.
All that happened about a month ago. Now I’m out here panhandling with No I.D.
