Foster’s accuser must learn
about domestic violence
According to the article “Foster’s accuser testifies she lied about beating” (Page A1, May 18), Ellisa Ennis apologizes for lying about abuse allegations while the DA contemplates pursuing perjury.
Women who falsify their allegations or even retract out of fear, lying or telling the truth, waste of our time and resources. Domestic violence victims don’t deserve to have someone like Ennis make a mockery of such a delicate issue plaguing our communities and families. As a woman who has experienced domestic violence, Ennis’ actions are unacceptable.
We need to hold her accountable for her actions. One way, is to subject Ennis to attend a domestic violence support group for a minimum standard amount of time and to seek counseling. This would educate Ennis on the severity of the issues surrounding domestic violence as well as help her understand her own actions.
I strongly encourage the Santa Clara County District Attorney’s Office to pursue a remedy that will hold this woman accountable for her actions and not let her walk away from this issue.
