The Dance

During the 1970s, Roberto Hung worked at a theatrical dance performance company on the Northwest side of Chicago supplying apparel costumes, ballerina slippers, dance stockings, and leotards for ballet dancers, actors and actresses for theatre performances around the world. My Father also worked for Marshall Field’s and Montgomery Wards, among other corporate employers in Chicago, Illinois USA.

While I was growing up in Cuba, I met the famous Cuban ballerina Alicia Alonso, who was a colleague of my Father at the Universidad de La Habana.

Later on, when I began my college years at Northeastern Illinois University, I became fascinated by the Dance Program sponsored by Libby Komeiko Fleming who taught Ballet, Jazz, Folkloric Dance and Flamenco on campus. So, I enrolled in the Dance Program as a freshman at NEIU. In order to participate in the Dance curriculum, I purchased leotards for Ballet I to practice at the Dance Studio which used to be by the A-Wing, near the Theatre. I also enrolled in the Spanish Flamenco class and Master Classes taught by Libby Komeiko Fleming. Spanish Flamenco dancing requires special black shoes with heels, Spanish “castañuelas”, and dance stockings which I purchased myself in order to practice for Libby’s flamenco gitano at NEIU on campus. The Dance Program at NEIU provided extracurricular courses for me which added up to a minor in Dance and Performing Arts to include Voice, Guitar, and Music training.

Thirty-one (31) years after NEIU college life, I can look back to remember that I lost my Spanish Flamenco shoes and “castañuelas” in 1982, after I returned from Summer French Immersion at Laval University in the Ville de Québec, Canada. When I returned from Canada, some of my personal clothing, Flamenco shoes and “castañuelas” were gone from my closet where I shared an apartment with my Mother and family on the Northwest side of Chicago, Illinois USA. While I was away in Canada, studying at Laval University for a French Immersion from May-August in 1982, my Mother and her friends took my black Flamenco shoes, “castañuelas” and other personal clothing from me to give away to her friends without my consent or authorization.

For the last thirty-two (32) years, since I graduated from Northeastern Illinois University, I have been losing personal belonging, fashion garments, academic books involving Ethnographic Psychiatry, Japanese I and II books, silk scarves, souvenirs and mementos from my Canadian travels and other trips across the United States of America. These personal belongings are removed from my possession to be archived and listed in reports by the State of Illinois courts and the U.S. Department of Justice without notifying me as the rightful owner when I have paid taxes and purchased the lost items with receipts for the record. “Why I am targeted as an Illinois Victim of Heinous Hate Crimes?” Since my Mother has been a psychiatric patient in Illinois, the psychiatrists who treat her target me as a Victim of Hate Crimes by psychopaths surrounding their psychiatric practice and my Mother who is under psychiatric therapy.

After I moved to the Village of Lombard on September 2, 1993 when my Father purchased Lombard real estate property and also provided the $10,000 deposit for my Brother and Mother to buy a Lombard home on Harrison Street near Finley Road, I began to lose household electronics, personal clothing, garments, business resources, kitchen tools, etc. To date in 2013, twenty (20) years after I moved to the Village of Lombard, the County of DuPage has not compensated me nor provided restitution for me as Victim of Heinous Hate Crimes in Illinois, United States of America.

As a Victim of Heinous Hate Crimes in the State of Illinois, I am entitled to Victim’s Compensation and Restitution under the Constitution of the United States of America enforced by the Department of Justice.
