Bishop Eddie Long’s Accuser Breaks His SilencePublished by Torrence Glenn on Tuesday, September 28, 2010 at 7:03 pm.
Well, we’ve heard from Bishop Eddie Long. We’ve heard from BJ Bernstein (the attorney for the plaintiffs in the 4 lawsuits.) But now for the first time since this whole debacle began, we hear from one of the accusers. Jamal Parris, the 3rd plaintiff to file a “sexual coercion” against Bishop Long spoke to reporters at the Fox Affiliate in Atlanta about his case and his relationship with Bishop Long. WATCH THE SHOCKING VIDEO HERE.Honestly, after watching that video I don’t know what to say. I’m pretty speechless. There was just so much to take in from it that I can’t even process it all right now. But I will say that Jamal seems rather sincere. Some of the quotes that really stuck out:
“Being around him is almost like a drug.”
“So you end up turning into something you’d never thought you’d be which is now a slave to the man that you loved.”
“To really believe this is about money is absolutely ludicrous.”
We’ll be keeping an even closer eye on this story, but this is not good. Technically, there is no proof here, but as I said, there’s something sincere about Jamal’s statement.
We’ve also just learned that Bishop Long’s attorneys recently hired the well known Private Investigator TJ Ward to look into the allegations against Bishop Long. Historically, when a defendant hires a private investigator, they’re looking for dirt on their accusers with which to discredit them. Point blank, PI’s find the dirt with which to sling the mud. Like I said from day one, it’s getting messy!!!
