The information I’m basing this post on can be found at TRN, here http://therustynail.wordpress.com/2008/12/06/nicky-and-the-cops/ and here, http://therustynail.wordpress.com/2008/12/06/kim-cut-nickys-phone-line/.
With his phone line cut, leaving no way for him to access the internet, and an upcoming appt on Tuesday, it seems Nikita’s days as a thorn in our side will come to an end; at least temporarily. I have no doubt that sometime in the future, he’ll rear his long, greasy haired head and start where he left off.
You can only point to his mentall illness, living situation and net connection, for so long as causes for his behaviour before it finally breaks down under scrutiny. He is responsible for his behaviour. The other things are simply contributing factors, and are used more as excuses (by NIkita and others) to explain his actions.
There is one simple fact. Nikita knows right from wrong. He may not be the brightest bulb, but he is capable of understanding what he does. And it’s that fact, which keeps me from having much sympathy for him. And while his sister in law Kim is taking on the Herculean task of trying to help him, the fact is, it should have been done a long time ago. Dog shit left on a carpet is still dog shit, whethere it’s there for an hour, a day or a week. Messes have to be cleaned up immediately.
And it wasn’t done, or done well, in this case. At this point, the horses are out of the barn, and smoeone is just now deciding to put a lock on the door. In spite of Nikita’s years of abuse towards others; his threats, tantrums and name calling, it’s only now that something is being done. Or at least attempted.
Yes, it’s better than leaving him unchecked; but how many people could have been spared his insanity if something was done long ago?
I hope he gets the treatment he needs. Maybe, just maybe, I’ll be proven wrong; but when Nikita gets back on the web, it’ll be business as usual.
