This is a story of the prey and the predator, but the clarity of who the victim is has been switched. A man named Eric Williamson has had his name in the news recently because he apparently exposed himself to a Fairfax County Police Officer’s wife in Springfield, Virginia. Now I would give the name of the wife, but it’s not shown anywhere or spoken in any report so far, though this man has had his name blasted everywhere since the mishap took place. At 5:30am, Eric was in his home, alone, naked, getting himself some coffee. At that same time, the Police Officer’s Wife was passing by with her son, taking him to the school bus stop. She crossed his yard getting to that bus stop, why was she looking into Eric’s home? Now I know, everyone gets curious when they see lights on in the early morning, but most of us, if we see something, don’t stare at the person that we see, if we see anyone. Now, looking out of a window at 5:30 in the morning, you’re not very much likely to see anyone outside, if they are there, especially if you have your lights on, you’d just be looking back at yourself.
The simple fact of the matter is though, that in this situation, she was one, trespassing, and two, peeping into his house. She basically just taught her child that you are alone to walk on anyone’s property you feel like, and can look at them all that you like as long as you call the police and say that they exposed themselves to you. And how do the police just bust into someone’s home without a warrant, or asking permission to enter, even worse, they went in with their weapons drawn, as if he was carrying a weapon. That’s not legal as far as I remember, unless the suspect in question is a proven criminal, and is withholding entry to their dwelling. There wasn’t anything reported ever that this man was a flasher, or even a criminal prior to this incident. His daughter is now also roped into this because people will recognize that her father is the one in the report. People often forget that their actions have far reaching consequences to whom they don’t know that they hurt. He also faces up to a year in jail as well as a $2,000 penalty, so when it’s proven that he didn’t commit the crime, will he be suing the Police Department, and also the Police Officer and his wife for the pain, anguish, and time from work he lost?
Why did the Police Department call his job before he was even released, before he could have a chance to contact them about the situation himself? I’ve also noticed in reports that the story had been changed from 5:30am to 8:30am, why was it changed, especially when his testimony of the happening events never changed. He said it was dark out, and at 8:30am in the morning, it wouldn’t be dark enough for him to not be able to see outside, and another thing, if this supposed exposure happened at 8:30 when kids were standing at a school bus stop, or lining up at a stop, then why was it only the police officer’s wife that saw him nude, especially when it’s alleged that his home was right across the street from the bus stop? If that were the case, more than just the one person should have called and reported him. Though the Police say that there may have been more people who saw, but no one has turned up yet, and the evidence is very slim. I think that woman had a personal problem with him that he was unaware of, and she felt that it was the best way to exact whatever revenge she thought she needed.
There is nothing in logic that makes this case even sound legitimate, so I don’t know how they plan on pursuing it. He was asked by his job to move from the home he shared with his co-workers. In the one of the Fox 5 reports, Will Thomas, the reporter, walked the route that the mother said she took her child through, which crossed right over Williamson’s yard, and from the report, she was near the either the front or the back corner of the property when she saw him in the buff, which judging from the distance, if you were inside his home, and it was as dark as the report says it was out, you’d likely not have seen anyone. Even when they were interviewing him, when the cameras shown him and the time it was during the interview, you couldn’t even see that far outside the door to where the woman claimed she saw him from, though from the outside, you could clearly see from there into his home. Unless that lady had a flashlight on herself, or a reflector, I doubt that he was able to see her. Oh well, we see what the world is coming to, just because someone finds a reason to have a problem with you, you have to have a horrible life. I feel for Eric and his family, I hope that they can pull through this.
