Cheeleaderin wegen häuslicher Gewalt festgenommen – nachdem sie ihren Partner als Täter verleumdete

Die US-amerikanische Cheerleaderin Amanda Welter kommt ausgerechnet auf dem Höhepunkt ihres Ruhms in Schwierigkeiten:

Here’s what's been reported so far: Welter placed a 911 call to the Scottsdale police at 3am on July 20, explaining that she’d been in a physical altercation with her boyfriend, Ryan, and that they’d both been drinking to celebrate her birthday. "My boyfriend became abusive…He smashed my head into tile," Welter, sounding out of breath and intoxicated, told the emergency operator in the recording of the 911 call (...). She added that he had also put her in a "choke hold," and that "He knows how to fight, he’s a professional fighter, he’s been trained in wrestling."

When police arrived at Welter’s house, they interviewed her boyfriend—not identified by the Scottsdale Police Department, which blurred out his face in a video of that exchange (...). That’s when he told police that Welter had actually assaulted him, and that he had recorded the fight on his phone.

"She found a text message from another girl and she started kicking the s*** out of me," he explained calmly, adding that he hadn’t touched her. "I was asking her to stop, I was trying to leave. She was pulling out my hair, she was scratching me, she punched me in my face. I have it all on tape."

That video recording, quickly making its way around the web, is grainy and has action that’s hard to see, but includes a wobbly-looking Welter pushing and pulling him and screaming, "Who is she?" and demanding her boyfriend's phone as he repeatedly tells her to stop and go inside.

Police arrested Welter, who was later released on a citation and given a court date, according to an email by a police spokesperson. As for her boyfriend, officials claim, "there was no probably cause to arrest the boyfriend for any crime." Welter showed no signs of being assaulted, according to the police report.

Welter’s boyfriend declined to speak with local TV station KTVK, which reported the story Friday, but did release a statement to the station. "People make mistakes, no one is perfect. I honestly want the best for her and I hope that this doesn't take away from the good things that she has done for both the NFL, as well as the service to our country," it read. "People seem to only remember the bad and it is easy to point fingers while standing on the outside. Now with that said, violence is never the answer and I honestly hope that this can be a learning experience for her and everyone else."

Ich muss wohl allmählich betonen, dass Genderama über keinen internationalen Stab an Undercover-Mitarbeitern verfügt, die angetreten sind, die Positionen der Männerbewegung durch ihr Verhalten zu untermauen: keine Feministinnen, die ihren antrainierten Männerhass bitter bereuen, keine männlichen Feministen, die einen Seitensprung mit einer Jahrzehnte jüngeren Sexarbeiterin begehen, und keine Cheerleaderinnen, die ihren Partner verprügeln und danach als Täter hinstellen, was von diesem Partner selbst aber sehr sportlich genommen wird. Genderama macht sich lediglich die Mühe, über dieses faszinierende neue Medium Internet an all die Meldungen heranzukommen, die von den klassischen Medien liebend gerne verschwiegen werden, weil sie eine bestimmte Ideologie auf so entsetzlich nervtötende Weise konterkarieren. Genderama ist wohl einfach das Blog, wo Feminismus auf Wirklichkeit trifft.
