My ex husband is not a great person.
When we were together he was abusive, neglectful, he cheated, he stole from the police department where he was a cop. Regularly. I've got scars where he burned me with cigarettes and he broke my nose twice.
He left me and the girls, out of the blue, with no money, no insurance, no food and a ton of bills. Literally, I was gone for the day, picked up the kids and went home and it had been cleaned out.
He was sued THREE times for excessive force and the city paid out hundred of THOUSANDS of dollars on his behalf. He was then put on vice detail where he spent his time beating up hookers. Finally, they moved him to tech crimes so he'd quit beating people up, I suppose.
He's NEVER been a loving father to his girls and he's never felt an ounce of regret about what he's done. As a matter of fact, to this day he blames ME for his actions. 20+ years on.
When he retired, I felt a small bit of relief for the people of his city. He moved to another state. To retire.
Just got word he was hired as the police chief in one of that states smaller towns.
Why on EARTH would anyone hire him with that record?
And, embarrassingly, I'm angry that someone like him can get a cush job like that, with his background, while I struggle with being under employed.
I don't know. I don't ever think about him unless he's verbally bashing one of his kids yet again but this absolutely pisses me off
I've already been through therapy. Writing this out is all the therapy I need. Thanks for listening to me :)
