Meet Kendon Fisher. He and his friends live at 3935 NE 15th Ave in Portland. Kendon is a perpetrator of abuse against a femme in our community.
*committed multiple acts of physical violence (choked and pushed survivor)
*exhibited controlling behavior (demanded phone, facebook, and email to be checked because he “didn’t trust” victim)
*committed financial abuse (put bills in victim’s name without consent)
*was emotionally abusive toward victim (publicly belittled victim, isolated victim from family and friends)
The victim of Kendon’s abuse fled to Portland without many possessions. Kendon followed the victim to PDX within two days, and had officially moved back within one week, leaving behind his apartment and job in Seattle.
Kendon was seen outside of the victim’s workplace within two weeks of her fleeing. The victim then pursued a restraining order through the Multnomah County Courts. She did not serve the restraining order for fear of retaliation. Kendon learned of the restraining order through Cameron (see above) and then went to the courthouse and served himself the papers.
Kendon then contested the restraining order in court, claiming the victim was “crazy” , was an online sex worker and pole dancer and thus was not credible.
Kendon claimed that victim’s identity as polyamorous was reason for his need to control her.
Kendon never denied the abuse and claimed that his dreams of being a firefighter would be tarnished if the restraining order was to be upheld.
During the court hearing, Kendon spoke for over 2 hours, while the survivor was only given 30 minutes to speak. The victim lost the case and now lives in fear.
