One of the themes running through the Hampstead SRA hoax is the Good Mother trope put forth by many of the Hoaxtead mob. If you believe people like Kristie Sue Costa, you’ll have heard the claim that Ella Draper is a wonderful, loving mother and all-round beautiful human being who has been unfairly victimised by the Powers That Be, who have stolen her children from her and forced her into exile.
To back up this argument, Hoaxtead mobsters will often dredge up the allegation that RD was physically abusive towards Ella during their relationship.
They will note, with some glee, that Mrs Justice Pauffley’s judgement of 19 March 2015 states that “a non-molestation injunction order was made against the father” in 2010. Now, the term “non-molestation” tends to conjure up dodgy overtones, as though RD had been “molesting” poor defenceless Ella, perhaps in a sexual sense.
Of course it doesn’t mean that at all. According to the website ChildLawAdvice.org,
A Non-Molestation Order prevents the Respondent from using or threatening violence against you (and if applicable your child/children) or intimidating, harassing or pestering you. This is to ensure the health, safety and well-being of yourself (and if applicable your child/children).
While a non-molestation order doesn’t necessarily carry sexual connotations, it definitely doesn’t sound good. It still implies that RD was “using or threatening violence”, or “intimidating, harassing or pestering” poor beleaguered Ella.
In various interviews, she has played on this misperception, alleging that RD was frequently violent towards her and her older son. She has even alleged that RD attacked her mother. If Ella is to be believed, RD is a right bounder, a danger to women and children, and a frequent and unrepentant perpetrator of domestic violence.
The CRIMINT report
However, we recently came upon the CRIMINT report. This was part of the information-gathering the police performed at the beginning of the investigation into the children’s allegations. It’s standard for them to look up any and all information on file about those they’re investigating, to get all the facts in one place.
What they found paints a rather different picture from the Mild and Saintly Ella the Hoaxtead mobsters seem to worship:
We apologise for the teeny-tiny print, but if you squint and look sideways at your screen, you should be able to just make it out.
First, let’s have a look at Ella Draper’s interactions with the police, as of 2011. It seems that the police were called to her house on a number of occasions.
There was the time, for example, that she alleged that her eldest son had assaulted her…and he made a cross-allegation, claiming that in fact, Ella had assaulted him!
And at one point it seems that Ella did allege that she had been assaulted by RD. The police responded by cautioning him.
However, on that same visit, RD alleged that he had been assaulted by Ella…and the police cautioned her, as well.
Had this been a one-sided incident of woman-battering, it’s unlikely the police would have issued Ella with a caution. It seems that the officers who responded to the call sized up the situation and determined that both parties were at fault and required cautions.
In other words, there’s more than one side to Ella’s claim that RD was “abusive” towards her and her son. In addition, while Ella was suspected of common assault against her oldest child, there is no police record of RD ever having laid hands on him.
We do note that there are a number of calls listed “NCBD-DRAPER and DEARMAN”.
Frankly, we don’t know what the acronym “NCBD” stands for, but since it seems no one was charged or cautioned on any of those police visits, we’d hazard a guess that it stands for something like “no charges brought—domestic”. However, if anyone happens to have a better grasp of cop codes than we do, please feel free to correct us.
In saying all this, we’re not trying to exonerate or make excuses for RD. Clearly, if he and Ella were engaged in domestic violence so serious that it required a visit from the police, that’s not a good thing.
However, when we compare the CRIMINT report with what Ella has continued to allege about her relationship with RD, we find the contrast very interesting indeed.
