Harassment: Leadership Abuse of Power   Leave a comment

My Personal Story

The abuse of power is widely observed among those in leadership positions.

When bosses and managers as well as others in such positions, use their authority to gain something for their own personal purposes, rather than to focus on job related matters it is abuse of power and disrespect for the position they hold.

When such people in leadership positions make sexual advances toward others that is disrespectful. And if a person in a leadership position terminate someone for refusing to become involved in a relationship with him or her, that is abuse of power and disrespectful for that individual’s rights.

A Personal Story:

I have experienced such treatment.

A man I worked with went outside of his management position. He wanted to control my personal life. He once told me he had made reservations for a hotel room for me out of town;

Further stating, “Some of our business partners will be there too.”

I felt uncomfortable with the trip and hotel, and did not go. He was very angry with me for the decision I made, not to go out of town.

I knew this man was attracted to me. He kept arranging alone time for us, and I kept showing up with someone else, and he kept getting angry with me. I did not share the feelings for him, that he had for me.

Reasons: I love the man, I am married to. Also, character matters to me.

He was not going to give up, and I was not going to give in. His attitude was making me very uncomfortable working with him. I decided to move into a location several miles away from him. He became furious with me, and demanded that I return to his location, and followed up with a threat:

“If you don’t, they can make it hard for you.” This was understood to mean those in leadership positions at the top in the company, would cause harm to me.

I refused to move back to his location. And he carried out his threat. He and those he referred to terminated me; took away my clients, and stopped my financial income.

They forced me into financial distress. I could not pay my debts from business related financial responsibilities. This behavior is leadership abuse of power.

Demonic Behavior

These are Acts of Demonic Behavior Committed Globally



          (Crowd Look On and Cheer)

A 33-year-old woman and mother of a 13-year-old daughter, who was presently working and attending college to obtain a degree in marketing, was beaten by three men while in the presence of dozens of onlookers who did nothing to prevent her death.

The Incident as reported:

At about 3:00 a.m. the woman was involved in two minor traffic accidents. In this particular area where the accident occurred, traffic is said to be heavy on weekends. One of the cars, reportedly, involved in the accident had three men in it.
Ages reported: a 19-year-old and two 20-year-old. The three men reportedly chased the woman’s car onto a bridge that corners the island of the city of Detroit, and rammed her car, forcing her to stop. One of the three men then, smashed her car with a crowbar and pushed her from the car, ripping her clothes. Then after pushing her against the car, he beat her. She tried to run, but was unable to get away from her attacker, who is described as weighing about 300 pounds. The woman was said to have weighed about 115 pounds and was 4-foot-11. Her attacker reportedly, chased her with a crowbar onto the bridge. At some point, the woman was either pushed from the bridge by her attacker or perhaps jumped from fear of him. Reportedly, the woman vanished in the water.

Two Teenage Girls Butchered an Elderly Woman 

In March of 1993, two 17-year-old girls were imprisoned for butchering a partially blind 70-year-old woman. The woman was throttled with her dog’s leash, stabbed and slashed 86 times, then stomped. The injuries to her body were described as: five broken ribs, a broken nose, and injuries to her scalp. The injuries to her scalp were caused from the girls’ attempt to scalp her. After they had murdered the elderly woman, they robbed her of $81.72 in pension money. One of the girl’s was her next door neighbor, who reportedly, had tormented the elderly woman for years.

London, England


Three teenagers, two 15-year-old, and a 16-year-old, were arrested for the murder of a 53-year-old taxi driver. One of the boys was said to have had a business card that read, “Crime Company Inc.” and a detailed plan to rob a bank and kill any witnesses. Another boy was said to have bragged about the murder at school, the next day. According to report, “All three teenagers had previous records, but mostly for petty theft.”

Herzliyya, Israel (1994)


At the age of 31 years, in December of 1993, a child molester and murder told the court that if he was granted clemency, he would “kill and rape children again and enjoy every minute of it.” He was charged with the deaths of three children. In 1989 he strangled a 4-year-old boy and hung him in a closet, and fatally stabbed a 10-year-old and his 11-year-old brother a month later.

He told the court he started molesting youngsters when he was 14. He was placed in a sex-offenders treatment program. He said he agreed to attend the program only to avoid going to jail, and to continue molesting children. The child molester and murderer confessed to having committed crimes that were so terrible, that it makes him sick to think about them.

Spokane, Washington (1993)

The Mind without a Conscious

Conscious in this sense is used in reference to one having the ability to make a logical judgment between right and wrong.   There are some who are intelligent people and can make educational decisions about things, and appears to be normal people. Yet, many of these same people commit wrongful acts and have no consciousness of guilt.  What is it that causes such a problem to exist among so many individuals?

My Thoughts:

We hurt ourselves emotionally and physically when we separate Spirituality from our everyday life. It becomes easy to commit wrongful acts against others and feel no remorse.  We as human beings need desperately to seek spiritual guidance from our creator, to help us in our daily life; to treat others the way we want to be treated, to guide us in our decision making, in order for us to be  better people.
