Tyra Banks’ Stalker Free to Stalk Again

tyrabanks.jpgThe mere thought of Tyra Banks generally makes me cringe but the latest on her makes me cringe for reasons that are entirely different. Tyra has had her own stalker since January, Brady Green, who has been hounding her with phone calls and letters since the beginning of 2008. He recently showed up at the studio where she tapes The Tyra Banks Show. If that’s not creepy enough, he also brang with him a bag full of newspaper clippings and other paraphanelia that referred to his stalking. From New York Post,

“Cops finally busted the burly ex-con drifter Tuesday for allegedly stalking Banks from coast to coast, but he was released without bail – an act that has added to her anxiety.

Brady Green, 37, has hounded Banks with multiple letters and phone calls since early January, cops and prosecutors said.

He then started sending her flowers and showing up in person at her Los Angeles TV studio, they said.

The Dublin, Ga., native then took a bus to New York with the idea of visiting the studio where “The Tyra Banks Show” is taped. He arrived in the lobby at 4:23 p.m. on Tuesday, asking to speak to the former supermodel, the authorities said.

Green was carrying a large duffel bag stuffed with magazine write-ups about Banks and notes to himself about his various attempts to reach her, they said.

Cops were called to the scene, where Banks said she feared for her safety. Green was cleared from the premises.”

According to a witness, Green lives on the streets despite his clean-shaven appearance. Green was arrested in a restaurant but he was set back onto streets, no bail required, just a few short hours later. As if that’s no bad enough for Banks’ stalker, he already had two convictions against him in 2007. Just another little something that screams, “Put this man behind bars!”

As said earlier, I’m not usually one to jump to the defense of Tyra Banks but no one should have to feel scared when doing their job or at home. And stalkers should serve jail time, especially when they’ve recently had two arrests. Hopefully, there are people looking for this maniac right now to put him where he belongs but with laws as screwed up as they sometimes are, he probably needs to do something else before they can arrest him.

January is National Stalking Awareness Month. Stalking horror stories like those of Tyra Banks and Paula Abdul are not limited to celebrities. 78% of stalking victims are women. 54% of female murder victims reported being stalked before they were KILLED! There is no federal statute directly addressing workplace stalking, but the Supreme Court may consider Martin v. Howard University, a workplace stalking/sexual harassment case, under Title VII of the Civil Rights Act of 1964. See http://www.dvmartinlaw.com/MartinvHowardUniversity. (Martin v. Howard University also involved a homeless man, Leonard Harrison. Harrision targeted African-American female law professors in search of the “physical embodiment” of a female character in a book that he believed should be his “wife.”) In addition to the legal issues, we need to provide law enforcement with some real alternatives. Courts can issue restraining orders, but people with mental problems are rarely deterred by them. Paula Goodspeed was clearly a danger to herself and others –primarily, to Paula Abdul. Brady Green was obviously a threat to Tyra Banks. Harrison was an abvious threat to me, when I was a law professor at Howard. Stalkers need to be confined and provided with mental help, for

D.C. is redefining its criminal “stalking” law to include “cyberstalking.” On July 7, 2009, Local Channel 9 news (CBS) aired journalist Gary Nurenberg’s newscast describing D.C.’s proposed “Omnibus Public Safety and Justice Amendment Act of 2009″ (Bill 18-151). It included D.C. Councilman Phil Mendelson, the Stalking Resource Center and the principal of this firm, Dawn V. Martin, Esquire.

The Law Offices of Dawn V. Martin, LLC applauds the D.C. Council’s expansion of the definition of stalking, but has proposed that the D.C. Council complement its new criminal stalking statute with an amendment to D.C. Human Rights Law expressly prohibiting employers from discriminating against their employees if they are victims of stalking — just as it prohibits discrimination on the basis of race, gender, etc. New York City Human Rights Law, § 8-101, 8-107.1 provides a model for such a statute, prohibiting employer discrimination against both stalking victims and victims of domestic violence.
