“I am writing to let Wayne Coyne and everyone else know a very important detail he didn’t know when he talked about Elliott’s scuffle with the police in the article. Elliott and his girlfriend Jennifer were standing there when the cops started to beat up some teenagers. When the fight got too close to Elliott and Jennifer they were ordered to move or suffer the consequences, they didn’t. Elliott chose to suffer the consequences.
I don’t know anyone who would do that. I bet Wayne Coyne wouldn’t do that. When Coyne says, “It really was nothing but sad,” “You just sort of saw a guy who had lost control of himself. He was needy, he was grumpy, he was everything you wouldn’t want in a person”, he was dead wrong. For those kids getting the hell beat out of them Elliott was everything you would want in a person, compassionate and beautiful. Elliott made a sacrifice. Those idiotic cops broke his ribs, and till the day he died he felt the internal pain. So Wayne, you’re wrong, and you shouldn’t go around standing on some lame Nancy Reagan Say No To Drugs soapbox when your talking about a fucking beautiful person who would sacrifice himself for strangers. I know Elliott had a drug problem, and its fucking tragic. But he fought very hard against a deep seeded depression that’s much deeper than most of us can comprehend, and he was one of the beautiful people to ever live. Sincerely”
