In the post-#MeToo era, women have created platforms for themselves to call out those who’ve abused them. They can do so by identifying themselves and the person they’re talking about. Or they can do the same by staying anonymous. However, despite this widespread revolution, there are women who don’t have access to these platforms. Such was the situation of a Florida woman.
In a video that has recently gone viral, a woman can be seen enter a veterinary clinic with her boyfriend and her dog. While everything looks pretty normal on the surface, the ugly truth comes out through a hand-written note.
According to reports, the woman in question (Reichle) had been brutally abused by her boyfriend, Floyd, for 2 days. Seeing no other option to report to the authorities, she hatched up a plan to go to the veterinary clinic and get help.
After distracting Floyd for a brief moment, Reichle managed to write a note and hand it over to the vets in the clinic. They read it and were horrified to see that it read “Call the cops. My boyfriend is threatening me. He has a gun. Please don’t let him know”. After that, they made the couple sit in a room and quietly called the cops.

Soon after Floyd was taken away by the police, Reichle was take to the hospital, where she was treated for a head injury, black eye and bruises on her arms. Floyd was jailed in the Volusia County Branch Jail with the following charges slapped on him: domestic violence, aggravated assault with a firearm and false imprisonment.
Considering how the couple had a spat that ended in two rounds going through their wall’s home, Reichle could have lost her life. But for whatever reason, she managed to reach out to those vets and bring one of the worst chapters of her life to an end. She should be forever grateful to them and the police who acted promptly.
