A RECORD OF U.S. FAMILY COURTS SACRIFICING MOTHERS & CHILDREN


RE-POSTED/RE-BLOGGED AS DEPICTED BELOW,

A RECORD OF U.S. FAMILY COURTS SACRIFICING MOTHERS & CHILDREN

Family Courts Behind an Epidemic of Pedophilia & Judicial Abuse

Posted 23 January 2013

The below-referenced chart lists over 75 family court cases in Connecticut where children’s safety and well being has been jeopardized by unethical and even illegal activities of court professionals who routinely target, extort and exploit Connecticut
mothers.  In many of these cases, where mothers reported a father’s violent crimes against her family, the mother eventually lost custody to the wealthier father when he — the real perpetrator — accused her of alienation.  Violent fathers almost always won sole or joint custody of victims, and in some cases these fathers even went on to become mass murderers.  Insurance companies and the State are being defrauded by medical and mental health professionals who are routinely rewarded handsomely for submitting false claims that misdiagnose fit and loving mothers and their children with mental disorders they do not have; they are also providing diagnosis and treatment plans that are considered illegitimate by the AMA and APA.  Meanwhile, the same professionals justify their billing by deliberately recommending to judges the placement of children in the care of violent fathers, even rapists, and by shielding these offenders from criminal prosecution that might otherwise keep children safe.  The effect is that the whole family becomes damaged and in need of treatment, and are subsequently required to obtain ongoing court affiliated medical and legal professional services.

Some of these cases were outlined in the May 2012 Conscious Being Alliance story A Life Sentence.  The summary of cases spans the past 20 years, with older and newer cases, and where many cases

were drawn out over a decade, or more.

Attorneys with a strategy which involves inflicting emotional and financial pain on mothers to make them “erratic, unstable and unpredictable” should be reported to the Grievance Committee so that they are disbarred for a violation of Rule 8.4 (4) for conduct that is prejudicial to the administration of justice. The precedence their strategy sets is that a man is encouraged to abuse the mother of his children so that the attorneys can keep their revenue stream going despite the impact this has on mothers and resultantly on their children. Grievance forms can be found here:

I have a significant background in Business Communications and PR and would like to contribute my files for case … amazing how many people can abuse the system for years with a documented list of offenses and still be able to misuse the system to their private advances.

Concerned Mother | August 23, 2013 9:41 PM

A person is guilty under 2011 Connecticut Code Title 53 Crimes Chapter 939
Sec. 53-21 (3) if they “permanently transfer the legal or physical custody of a child under the age of sixteen years to another person for money or other valuable consideration”… such person “shall be sentenced to a term of imprisonment of which five years of the sentence imposed may not be suspended or reduced by the court”. Has anyone asked the DA to issue a warrant for the arrest of some members of the custody business?

Ron | July 19, 2014 11:38 AM

Keith, This is information which is tragically in sync with what I’ve read from other researchers regarding pedophilia rings and subsequent cover-ups occurring WORLDWIDE. Have you read Dave McGowan’s work entitled “Pedophocracy”? It’s not surprising one bit to learn that the courts are involved in the corruption as are politicans—ETC. I am reminded also of the late Ted Gunderson, former FBI agent who became Aware, shall we say–are you aware of his investigations regarding child abuse? What is bad, evil in society is vigorously protected and encouraged by the System.

LAWLESS MODERN AMERICA and MY HORROR DEALING WITH CORRUPTED TEXAS


amyandmarkelcharron

Please, first thing to ask yourself how is it legal or even Constitutional FOR T…EXAS and our corrupted Government to take a innocent mothers child (at 41 yrs old) with no criminal background at all with Native American Rights. My only child was viciously taken so scared at 2 yr old with no investigation right away for only making a evidence based criminal report on my wealthy powerful step dad who… was appointed by Governor Rick Perry! Despite my case was ruled out and dropped it was illegally reopened due to CPS worker Debra Reyna saying the document was not official yet it was and the judge allowed this! The CPS investigator who signed it is DEBRA MAYO who never came to court once to clear up their lies! She also returned no phone calls in over 2 yrs! The 2 CPS workers that illegally set me up to lose…

Family Court Extortion – Sunny Kelley Story


Family Court Injustice

There are perhaps hundreds of parents like Sunny who have been bankrupted through the CT courts, essentially extorted out of a relationship with their children. Recently, journalist Keith Harmon Snow posted on his website a story listing over 70 cases involving mothers who were never found to be dangerous or unfit, but none the less lost custody after their children reported they were physically or sexually assaulted by their fathers. Mothers who continued to seek legal protection or medical treatment for the children’s injuries were ordered to pay supervised visitation centers to see their children. “

 Bethany, Connecticut: True story of how Sunny Kelley lost custody of her son, Max, after reporting physical and sexual abuse (with documentation, medical evidence and statements from Max to validate her claims). Family Court awarded sole custody to the abuser, and placed Sunny in supervised visitation. Sunny was bankrupted by the high cost of family court proceedings, and…

“I’ve decided to continue speaking…”


Family Court in America

From theCongressional Testimony of Stacy Lynne to Bill Windsor ofLawless America:

“… This morning I spoke for two hours at a meeting in Jefferson County for the first time since my son was taken nearly a year ago and I have nothing left to lose. They’ve taken everything from me. And I’ve decided to continue speaking as I have done before to help people learn about how to protect their children and their families from the corruption in the United States of America…

Lawless America…The Movie is all about exposing the fact that we now live in Lawless America. We no longer have laws that are enforced because judges do whatever they want to do. America has also become lawless because government officials are dishonest and/or corrupt.

The movie will expose corruption in every state. The Movie will focus on victims. Corrupt judges and corrupt government officials…

Forced Adoption: Cameron, It’s Time To Say Sorry


 

 

Hopefully, US follows suit to inquire, conduct due diligence, and return children, . . . but not “to take” more or ask for more money other than to compensate the survivors.

 

Researching Reform

Stemming from a former Australian Prime Minister’s heartfelt apology to Australian women who lost their children in the 50’s and 60’s to forced adoption (all for the crime of being unmarried), a movement in the UK to see our government does the same is now underway.

After hearing Julian Gillard’s now famous apology to the nation for taking babies away from mothers in Australia solely because they were single, Veronica Smith, a retired nurse who also lost her child to forced adoption in the 60’s in Britain decided to set up the MAA, or Movement for an Adoption Apology. There is a movement already in Australia, called the National Apology for Forced Adoptions (which celebrated its two-year anniversary last week), but none at present for women who lost their children at the hands of British forced adoption policy during that period.

For the 500,000 women in Britain who lost their…

IS A DELAY BETTER THAN A DISASTER?| CORRUPT CT


re-blogged with permission and intent from

CORRUPT CT

Is a delay better than a disaster?

Is a delay better then a disaster?

Benjamin Franklin once said, “You may delay, but time will not, and lost time is never found again.”  Now take a minute to think about this.  “A delay is better than a disaster” is another famous quote from an unknown source.  While the two conflict in their meanings they both have the same outcome when it comes to the safety of your children, family and loved ones you need to make a decision.

When it comes down to it, there is no delay long enough for me to accept that a disaster is imminent.  This is my flesh and my blood and I will, at any cost, do what I need to do to prevent this disaster from happening.  That is why when I found out the danger my son was in I contacted the DCF, and after 45 long days, (“the CT DCF delaying, but time continuing on”), they finally responded to me saying that no danger was present.

I offered them many leads, who and where drugs were being sold, my sons medication non-the-less and other narcotics, that he was being left home alone 4 to 5 nights a week so that his father could sleep with his alcoholic girlfriend in her garage.  I even gave them the name of witnesses who have seen this first hand, the drugs, the prostitutes and the selling of controlled and prescribed drugs – the best time and method to contact them.
*Had my son’s blood level checked for proper medication levels? – FAIL
*Contacted the school and pulled his records to see he is failing every class due to lack of medications? – Fail
*Had the father of my son submit to a urinalysis or tox screen? – Fail
*Spoke to the police about the nights I had to pick my son up because it was 2 in the morning, he found drugs in the house and was upset? – Fail Fail Fail
*Took the 5 simple minutes to call the first hand witnesses that could attest to his behavior, soliciting prostitutes, using drugs and emotionally and physically neglecting our child – Fail

I was hoping to tell you a story of an epic battle of custody and the DCF doing their jobs but I am not able to, all I can do is supply you with the dates, the people I spoke to, the people that never got back to me, and the fact that the outcome was, and let this be a lesson, it is ok to use drugs, pick-up whores, neglect your children and sell illegal narcotics, you just need to ensure the case worker you get doesn’t actually give a shit about children or their safety, (average 90% of them) and you are in the clear.

So, lets get these details in writing and see how we can try to rectify this situation as soon as possible, because even now time is passing, and no one but the big man in the sky or whomever you believe to be your higher power knows when it will turn from a delay into a disaster, but once that happens it is far to late and that is beyond acceptable.  If it is the delay that brings the disaster in this case, I will be sure that the DCF pays, I will spend my last breath, dollar and everything I have to bring this to the highest court I can because someone needs to be responsible for these disasters that seem to happen all the time, in the news and online.  The father is certainly not in the right, but he is a sick man, and I warned DCF all about it, it ends up being their neglectful acts in the end that lead to tragedy (an event resulting in great loss and misfortune).
So it started with a call to the CT DCF hotline, after a disturbing call from my son at 1:30am
An investigation was started, let’s call the investigator… Kathy, yes her real name, I pay taxes which pays her salary. So she comes to speak with me at my home, and to ensure the words exchanged were not misunderstood I had a witness here. It is no secret that DCF likes to change their story, most likely to save time and paperwork, just my opinion.. Anyway, I informed her of the many, many dangers lurking in the home that my son is residing in. One being he found drugs, two he fills his oil tank with diesel, play’s Dr. on when he gets his meds and not, The drug use and the drinking, days without hot water. I could go on but I thought I would let the investigator do her job. I did though inform her that there were people that were also concerned about my son and that I highly suggested she at least call, as she said she would.
Tuesday 1-25-11 she came to my home, it was supposed to be on Monday 1-24-11 but she couldn’t make it. On 2-18-11 I called because I had not heard from her and wanted to know how things were coming along, she informed me that she had not gotten any releases back from school, the Dr, or his counselor. So she called back to discuss the major concerns of my son….oh wait that was my mother! There is much more to this story, so I have to say check back tomorrow for the rest, including the involvement of supervisors. Sleep well and don’t let the DCF bed bugs bite.

Jail Solves Nothing In Payment Dispute

Jail Solves Nothing In Payment Dispute

March 15, 2011|By Rick Green

I went to debtors’ court, aka Magistrate Harris T. Lifshitz’s family court in Hartford, to see how a man could end up in jail because he’s broke.

Recall the story of Gerald Frazee, the former CEO now living in Simsbury who, when his business career in California imploded, failed to make disputed support payments to his ex-wife and ended up in Lifshitz’s courtroom.

Frazee was sent to jail for two months, largely because Magistrate Lifshitz believes the formerly high-flying businessman was hiding the approximately $167,000 he may or may not owe to his wife.

Frazee says he doesn’t owe his wife any money and points to a court ruling in California that supports his case. I don’t know the answer to this, but state law is clear that we don’t send people to debtors’ prison. Incarceration should be used only for brief periods for nonpayment of child or spousal support.

This isn’t a problem for Lifshitz, who has a habit of throwing real and alleged deadbeats in the slammer for weeks and months. A judge once found him “clearly erroneous” for jailing a man because he couldn’t pay the full child support he owed. Others told me similar tales about appearing before Lifshitz.

“Connecticut case law is clear that a civil contempt order must be remedial and coercive, and not punitive,” Superior Court Judge Richard Dyer ruled in 2008 after Lifshitz jailed a man who couldn’t come up with $56,353.

“The issue here is not an inability to pay. It’s a refusal to pay,” Lifshitz chided Frazee one afternoon in court recently, when he explained that he had carefully reviewed Frazee’s finances and found evidence of ability to pay. “That’s why this called for incarceration.”

“You have resources other than a job,” Lifshitz said.

Frazee, who is 63, has been out of work since 2008. He claims no income and no assets.

Suspecting that Frazee was hiding cash or other financial resources, Lifshitz sent Frazee to jail from Dec. 23 until late February, finally freeing him because of a chronic blood-clotting condition that threatens the Simsbury man’s life. The two-month jail stay — including five days at Dempsey Hospital at taxpayer expense — produced no new money from Frazee.

Instead, Frazee sat in jail and was unable to work or look for employment. He could not respond to a job offer from a Philadelphia company that would have provided him with the income he needed to make the payments that landed him in court in the first place.

“The magistrate believes Mr. Frazee is hiding assets,” Frazee’s tax attorney, Richard Convicer, wrote state Rep. Linda Schofield, D-Simsbury, recently. “While such a conclusion is possible, I know of no evidence supporting it.”

“The fact that a citizen can be locked up for nearly two months based on an unsupported suspicion lacking any factual basis is deeply disturbing and a situation which our judicial system should not tolerate,” Convicer wrote.

When Lifshitz freed Frazee, he issued a “confinement order,” remanding him to the “custody” of his present wife and forbidding him from leaving his home for anything other than to search for a job and to go to church. Lifshitz joked that there would be “bed checks every night” before sending Frazee home with his wife.

When Lifshitz sent Frazee to jail in December, it was for his failure to come up with $85,000 of the $167,000 he owes stemming from a long dispute with his ex-wife in California. Frazee and his lawyer, Oliver Dickins, say Lifshitz has been unwilling to consider the possibility that Frazee is broke.

“This is such a frustrating thing,” Frazee told me. “The problem is how do you prove you don’t have something?”

“I paid $124,000 in child support. If I was trying to get out of that, why would I do that? It was up to 2003, that was until my son turned 18.”

Frazee and his lawyer are now appealing to Superior Court to intervene and dismiss the entire matter. Frazee hopes to start work soon for a Philadelphia lighting company that still has an executive-level job for him. Although he disputes owing his ex-wife any money, Frazee said he would start making payments to her in order to satisfy the court — and stay out of jail. However, he says he does not have the tens of thousands of dollars in back payments and interest that Lifshitz wants immediately.

Lifshitz, meanwhile, is up for appointment by Gov. Dannel P. Malloy for another three-year term. For now, debtors’ court remains in session.
