Celebrity Assault

Celebrity assault cases have been on the rise. Just recently, one of the actresses featuring in the prominent Television series NCIS, Pauley Perrette was assaulted. This resonated to public knowledge after she tweeted on her assault by who she refers to as a ‘psychotic homeless man’ that made substantive threats of killing her.

The actress, commonly known for her imminent role as a forensic scientist as Abby Sciuto. Following her tweet, it can be clearly deduced that the actress was deeply frightened. In what she describes as not only traumatic but also frightening, the actress went ahead to explain that the incident did change her life.

According to the actress, as she was walking from her Holly wood residence to a nearby guest house, she was grabbed by the homeless man who literary punched her and kept on going about the fact that he was going to kill her. The actress, 46, did identify the homeless man as William. The attack, that occurred around 5 p.m was orchestrated not far away from where a substantive number of transients are mostly found.

Trying to contain the situation, Perrette tried initiating a conversation with the homeless man, in fact telling him that he had a good name, similar to the one held by her nephew. Instead of making good the situation, the homeless man kept on punching her. The matter was later picked up by the LAPD who arrested the man and is now being held of $100,000.

On the social realm, the actress has been quite vocal with regard to advocating for civil rights as well as taking care of the homeless people within the society. In what she penned as life changing, Perrette was quite shocked that such an incident occurred within Hollywood as well as the fact that she was attacked by the same people that she has dedicated her life to protecting.

This experience resonates to a number of assault cases that are prevalent within the entertainment industry, most of which go unreported. It is imperative for the society to incept clear and comprehensive mechanisms that not only take care of such people within the society but also conceptualize diverse and dynamic mechanisms that will ensure homeless people to not only have housing facilities but also ensure that there are enough mental health institutions to cater for the same. On the other hand, we ought to take a personal initiative to work hand in hand with the federal institutions to ensure that such cases are effectively minimized.
