Well thought-out, and preferably knowledgeable advice, that is.
My original plan (after setting aside the absurd proposition of trying to turn the Slovak state against one of its own agents) for how to respond to my beatings at the hands of the Slovak police was to:
- Leave the country
- Publish the story online
- Attempt to make a media story of the incident
I’ve done numbers 1 and 2 already. The question is now: should I do number 3?
I have the media and other contacts I need already, I think. If any of them chose to actually make a story of it is another question.
Possible outcomes include:
- Nobody touches the story
- It’s published, and yields some good
- It’s published, and my life gets even more difficult
A big part of me wants to strike back at these monsters. Another part recognizes that the first and third possibilities are the more likely ones.
As context to all of this, Bratislava is still home to me. I’d like to go back there and try to resume my life at some point.
What do you think?
