Shalana is violent when angry. She often tries to start a physical altercation. I have hundreds of texts [threatening] bodily harm, threats to come to my job and get me fired. Threats to ‘crack my head open’ if I return to my home. Threats to leave me in a landfill. I want the threats to stop. I want her out of my home…She has already cut up my clothes!
