There is a clear record that he abused her. The police came to the house several times. Most people forget that detail. She was afraid enough to call the police.
In the interview he uses a classic abuser technique and gives his abuse a softer term.
In the interview, he blames his wife several times for his bad behavior using the classic victim blaming tactic of a malignant narcissist.
In one of the most horrific parts of the interview, Simpson is “remembering” the blood at the murder scene, and for the first time in the interview as he does that, his nonverbal behavior and his words match. He is uncomfortable. Horrifying.
So what can you do? Listen carefully to your friends and family. Look for signs that someone in your life may be suffering under the Shadow of abuse. Believe someone who tells you they are afraid. Don’t discount their fear. And if you are in a healthy, loving relationship hug your partner right now.
