PREJUDICE.

That’s the kind of attitude that I’d encountered in my search for my husband, Steve.

“How could anyone abandon their child?”

“Are you two having problems at home? He has probably taken a time out. Just wait for him, he’ll eventually come home.”

“Is he happy with her?” (Someone asking my relative)

“He had taken a gun with him? I hope not but it looks like he did it.”

“A lot of people searched the mountains for him, he’s probably not there (Verdugo mountain).”

“Apparently he doesn’t want to be found, just let it go.”

“Just take care of your child instead of looking for him. He’ll get around.”

“He’s depressed? Anyone can get depressed.”

“Problems at work? That’s normal. I get problems at work, too.”

“There are no signs of foul play.”

“So, he just walked out.”

“You just have to wait until someone finds him in the mountains.” (Meaning due to decomposition)

“It’s a waste of time putting up flyers.”

“So, there are sightings. People had found him then.”(Meaning there’s no need for any more searches)

“He’s FBI. He can take care of himself.”

“He’s FBI. He’s on a mission.”
