In March, a mother in Arizona posted on Twitter that her son had been bullied and asked her to send her birthday wishes to the Internet.Trevor Bauer saw the post and invited his family Dodgers I gave my son a spring training game and an autographed jersey. Bauer said he had something to do with the bullied boy.

“That’s the story I identify.” Bauer said that day. “It was my childhood.”

Therefore, it is particularly disappointing that Bauer and his representatives used bullying tactics in responding to allegations of sexual assault against him.

Saturday, Washington post A woman in Ohio reported last year that she had obtained a temporary protection order against him. Bauer complained On Twitter, the post states, “I’ve spent the last six weeks digging into my life … to create the wrong story.”

At a hearing starting Monday, a judge in the Los Angeles Superior Court will consider whether to stay in place. Temporary restraint order for Bauer, This was obtained by a woman in California.Allegations made at her request for a detention order — he Suffocated her unconscious twice and injured her face — A naturally triggered investigation by police detectives, major league baseball, and investigative journalists. It is irresponsible not to determine if there is evidence of behavioral patterns, especially given Bauer’s checkers, often bullying. Social media interaction With a woman.

Bauer claimed that an Ohio woman “tried to blackmail me for millions of dollars.” The post reported that a lawyer representing Bauer “first mentioned the possibility of a financial settlement” and asked for an offer, after which a lawyer representing women offered $ 3.4 million. The woman reportedly dismissed the protection order six weeks later after being threatened with legal action by Bauer’s lawyer.

In California, Bauer’s lawyer wrote: Submission to court this week The woman partially pursued the problem “to get a financial solution.” Evidence of documents to be submitted: A text message from a woman to a friend. The woman said of the lawyer:[’]Try to solve with me[,] Please provide big cash. Bauer’s lawyer quotes a text message saying that a woman “wanted” a settlement, but that text message does not support the use of that verb.

A spokeswoman representing Bauer actively and repeatedly demands “Urgent correction” To the Story — Not because of a story error, but because it provides information and perspective.

If there’s a false story here, it’s from a worn-out playbook.For now, President Trump Reject-Reject-Attack-Reject-Reject-Distracting Strategy In response to allegations of sexual assault.

Bauer’s baseball career is at stake, but its convenient framing obscures a larger story. Bauer is investigating a felony assault. His lawyer has denied the claim. He has not been arrested or charged. If so, his freedom is at stake.

There are serious claims here, and the selective use of photos and text messages on both sides obscures the resolution of those claims. Did Bauer actually choke the woman into an unconscious state? Do people lose consciousness?

It’s amazing that the Dodgers haven’t yet provided a firm condemnation of that kind of behavior, whether Bauer is guilty or not.

This is what Nationals manager Dave Martinez said when MLB took a vacation from Washington Nationals infielder Starlin Castro last month while investigating domestic violence allegations. We do not tolerate any kind of domestic violence.. “

This is what Nationals general manager Mike Reso said four days later, just before MLB stopped Castro. Other sections.When This time it failed.. “

From the Dodgers we joked From President Stan Kasten, who Kasten has not apologized for, before or after being reprimanded by Commissioner Rob Manfred. Bauer will almost certainly receive a long outage from Manfred, and maybe the Dodgers will speak out then.

We know where the people are standing. I don’t know where the Dodgers are standing. Bauer stands for bullying and is sad because I know what it feels like to be bullied.
