CM Greene

This afternoon, I had a chance to read the full Motion to Revoke, Increase, or Alter Bail filed by the DA’s office yesterday.  The statements in that motion are very disturbed. There are several parts of the statements attributed to CM Greene that are troubling, but for me, the worst of it is the apparent effort to “shut down” the victim and to tell her that the only way “everybody is gonna be okay” is if she backs down.  If those were CM Greene’s statements, they are deplorable.

Violence against women is a chronic problem in our country. Nashville should stand against intimidating victims. We can’t allow guilting victims into recanting.  It is wrong to make “m*******, I am the system” threats to victims.

I think CM Greene should consider whether he is able to properly represent his district.
