It is a book about my real life experience I've described as rough justice, and negligence.
When the police seized my pitt bull Roxy from me it prompted me to write my book. In Britain Pitt Bull Terriers were taken from their owners and put down, because an eight year old girl was attacked by a dog. I was also tormented by childhood memories of abuse. I needed to let out my anger and feelings of resentment - by writing about it.
I did something drastiic so social workers will get involved in with my trouble life; move me as far away from my family as possible. I began a journey of self-discovery. I was much more liberated to make my own decisions. I didn't go to college after leaving shool because my brother, sister, and mum laughed at me and put me down. One of the other reasons why I didn't go to college because I couldn't live with my sister being jealous of me.
In 1998 I went to college to study horticulture. I managed to find work afterwards. I now want to be an artist.
How I've expressed my feelings it is very poetic. I've drawn abstract drawings expressing my thoughts, feelings, emotions, hopes and dreams.
On June 2 the sound of voices woke me up.Abbey came upstairs: told me 'it is the police, they have come to take the dogs. She took Roxy and Brandi downstairs. I could not imagine my life without Brandi or Roxy. They were going to be my security when we began our new life. I could not feel the joy or excitement I felt the day before. I got myself dressed, went downstairs into the kitchen.
Five male derectives and a black woman were scattered all over the rooms downstairs. All of the doors were open. I felt in a daze. All of the dogs were in the back of a van - caged up, they were all barking at each other. I could not take it in she was in the van to be driven away to an unknown place.
Premier John Major ordered slaughter of Pit bulls. Every dog in Britain to be put down under emergency laws. Mr. Major took action because of the horror attack on six-year old Rucksana Khan, 28 times snapping her ribs and leaving her for dead.
