False Accusations – Patterns of unwarranted or exaggerated criticism directed towards someone else.
The pointed finger
Almost everyone has felt the injustice of being unfairly accused at one time or another. However, for some people who are close to a Personality-Disordered individual, being falsely accused can be a frequent, almost routine experience.
False Accusations, Distortion Campaigns and Smear Campaigns can all be used with or without a grain of truth, and have the potential to cause enormous emotional hurt to the victim or even impact their professional or personal reputation and character.
Why they do it
False Accusations can be forms of Baiting, or Proxy Recruitment.
Sometimes false accusations are used by abusers as a deflection technique, to discredit their victim and promote the idea that the abuse is merited or has been overstated. For example, an abusive parent may tell other relatives the child is a chronic liar and ‘drama queen’.
Some false accusations are rooted in Dissociation – where a Personality-Disordered Individual confuses their feelings with facts.
How it feels
It is a frightening, humiliating and upsetting experience to discover you are a victim of false accusations. When dealing with Personality-Disordered individuals, the nature of the accusations may seem clever and manipulative or may seem illogical or absurd. However the reaction one has is usually the same: there is an overwhelming urge to clear your name and set the record straight.
Baiting – A provocative act used to solicit an angry, aggressive or emotional response from another individual.
Projection – The act of attributing one’s own feelings or traits to another person and imagining or believing that the other person has those same feelings or traits.

Recent activities in our town have proven beyond all proof that Roy F McCampbell and his esteemed wife Mary Jane Goldthwaite are not upstanding citizens as described by Patricia Godzsizewski, and David Stachura in the letter. They in fact should be avoided at all costs by all residents of Schiller Park. They have no standards or morals.
I sincerely hope that the wonderfull Schiller Park Police Department realizes that submitting a false police report is a crime and Mary Jane Goldthwaite should be charged accordingly. I do not know the target of their current ignorance personally but I have it on many good sources that she is the idea example of a good and kind person.
That families continued bullying of this community has gone to far. Everyone needs to know what they do to people who make the mistake of being good and kind hearted citizens.
