Two weeks after the murder of Dr. George Tiller, Lindsay Roeder received this letter from her ex-husband Scott Roeder in jail.
I heard bits and pieces from second hand sources about your interview on the news. Do you care to share what took place during that interview? If you're willing to share with the world your views, and since I didn't see it myself, would you mind telling me what you told them? Although, my guess is that I'll never hear back from you because that would keep in character with being the grown up spoiled brat that you are. You exhibit the same character the hundreds of times you've hung up on me when talking on the phone, in the past.
But my true concern is with our son, Nicholas. I'm afraid he's becoming or already became a spoiled brat, such as yourself. I thought that at least when we were still married we were (at least I) was teaching him the basic things in life LIKE SAYING THANK YOU. Nicholas in the best of my recollection, has never thanked me for taking him out to eat, to a movie, or giving him money. Whenever I drop him off at home, he just says goodbye and I'll see you again. I gave him a fairly decent knife the other day and he did not thank me. When my friend Jared had him work on his computer, after Jared paid Nicholas, Nicholas didn't thank him. These are typical signs of being a spoiled brat and it makes me cringe when I think he's 22 years old now and getting set in his ways. You have had him most of his life and he is just following the teaching you have given him. Another example of you being a spoiled brat was after we...we were married, weeks later I found out you had not sent out any thank you notes for the gifts received at our wedding.
I dropped the ball on sending them out but only learning that you had not sent one thank you note to any of our guests.
On a much deeper note, the fact that you are housing Nicholas and not encouraging him to work is teaching Nick absolutely no work ethic. I'm sorry to say but it looks like you've done a very poor job of raising Nicholas after our divorce.
I would be glad to hear your response.
P.S. Also, please read the enclosed material and let Nick read it, also.
If you're an adult, you'll respond. if you're a spoiled brat, you won't.
Ask Nick to respond, also.
