…Or is this yet another of Perrette’s lies, scapegoating yet another convenient man? Charles C. Johnson of GotNews.com reports, with a slightly different approach than that of the Hollywood Press Machine. Go read it.
Forty-five year old David Merck was arrested in Hollywood on Thursday, and charged with felony battery, due to accusations made by NCIS actress Pauley Perrette.
The actress tweeted about the alleged attack, stating that “she almost died” after she was “jumped by a very psychotic homeless man” while walking from her home to a new space she bought across the street.
Perrette, no doubt with the back of her hand pressed to her forehead, has reported ever so dramatically to Twitter, the press, and oh yeah, the police, that she was assaulted in the street near her home. Johnson raises some issues with her story, and I have a few of my own, not the least of which is that he inquires:
“Where are the cuts, scrapes and bruises?” She should be black and blue, and swollen like a puffer fish, but instead she has a slightly red nose? In her interview on KTLA5, she looks somewhat hungover, but not as if she’d been repeatedly punched in the face by a man. http://ktla.com/2015/11/13/ncis-actress-pauley-perrette-describes-being-viciously-assaulted-near-hollywood-hills-home-man-arrested/ (Don’t you just love how the news crew filmed her neighborhood in the scary dark of night, though the Alleged Attack occurred around 5:oo pm?)
A few more points come to mind. Is there video evidence of the alleged attacker in the vicinity? I wonder how many security cameras are in that neighborhood. I wonder if any of them will be found to have mysteriously malfunctioned around the time of the “attack” – the way they might have mysteriously malfunctioned at a certain restaurant around the time Perrette claims that her ex husband Coyote Shivers violated her restraining order against him. Such coincidences do happen. And if by chance there is footage of the alleged attacker, perhaps fleeing the scene, I’d like to see it and I’d like to see if the “murder in his eyes” might have been captured on video as he ran away.
Is “murder in his eyes” a forensics term she picked up from her job acting like a smart scientific character? I wonder if video will show a man simply wandering around, or making eye contact, and maybe saying something like, “Hey! I know you from TV!” If an inveterate liar like Perrette wasn’t feeling very magnanimous that day, why would she not report such an encounter as an assault? Perhaps since the last man she falsely accused is now locked away in jail, she needed someone else at which to point a crooked finger?
By the way, the “homeless, mentally ill” man does have a name – David Merck. And guess what? For some reason I don’t think we will see any great social rally to raise awareness of men’s mental health OR homelessness issues. We will see Pauley on her fainting couch and nursing a reddish blemish on her nose with her window cracked open for the paparazzi.
If he has a history of violence as implied by police, perhaps he should have been in jail already. Or perhaps he might have been better off if he were in a shelter with some attention to his mental health issues.
That is a very big if in this world.
Back to the duplicitous Perrette, what of her claim that she was lying on the sidewalk in shock? The man who walked past her said she “was disheveled, seemed disoriented and appeared to be homeless.”
Collapsing in shock might be a reaction for an ordinary woman – if she were not some Star Crazy just lying about why she was lying there. Perrette, who has allegedly endured ten years of harassment after a divorce that was supposedly like the Holocaust, might be a little more resilient. She might, through years of domestic combat seasoning, have acted a bit more coolly. Of course, “acting,” in this case, could have a lot more influence on what really happened.
She sure was composed when she talked to the press, as opposed to the porcelain princess of a victim she claims was nearly killed on the street. Her tweets were downright giddy. Makes me wonder if an episode like this can be found in her Star Crazy notes.
So, what’s the end game here? Why might she be scapegoating yet another innocent man in yet another bid for public sympathy? Or at the very least milking a real crime for all its worth? Is this the last season of NCIS, and is she in need of a new gig? Are the producers of the show getting sick of her shit (just imagine working with her for over a decade!) and planning to kill off Abby?
Maybe she’s bored; now that she has finally succeeded in putting her ex in jail, and can no longer pretend to be afraid of him. A new bogeyman? This girl’s gotta have a stalker of some sort, ya know. Some people can’t breathe without drama.
Or maybe her boyfriend/fiance/pseudo-husband (whatever he is this week) Thomas has had enough of living with Crazy, and is dumping her ass. She can’t use her worn out playbook on him; he knows “where the bodies are buried.” Indeed, he wielded a knight’s shovel, so to speak. Heaven knows that’s a guy who could credibly claim Battered Spouse Syndrome for his part in her crimes.
Could Perrette have merely been drunk or high that afternoon, staggering around and falling to the sidewalk in a chemically induced haze? Remember, the witness said she looked “disoriented” and “homeless.” Some guy sees her like that in public – what if he recognized her??? What’s a narcissist to do? How about pinning it on that real homeless dude she always sees around, the one she can describe to a “T” to the cops.
Then again, it could be that the Alleged Attack happened just as Perrette claimed. It is possible that after a lifetime of portraying herself as a victim, some random stranger, who should have been living in the jail cell now occupied by Coyote Shivers, walked up to her and punched her lights out. Such an encounter with Karma would most certainly be enough to send that narcissistic Louisiana swamp donkey into a state of very deep shock.
Being imprisoned for a crime he didn’t commit, Coyote Shivers was of course unavailable for comment.
