Many American judges believe they are above the law. They are a large part of what is wrong with the United States today as American governments from federal to local levels continue to violate civil and human rights and institute police state measures to marginalize any serious opposition. The growing abusive corruption of the government and its use of threats, illegal actions, intimidation, and harassment amounts to government-sponsored terrorism against American families. The end of America has arrived and the abusive power-hungry bastards in government are its pallbearers.

Crime Pays When You’re A Judge

Corrupt and abusive judges like Sacramento’s Peter McBrien and Pennsylvania’s infamous duo of Mark Ciavarella and Michael Conahan are directly responsible for much of the government’s terrorism against citizens. They benefit from it directly via more workload and therefore job security plus campaign contributions from attorneys and others who benefit from it. Others, like the Pennsylvania couple, benefit via outright bribes. The mess they have made of the courts is the means to enslaving and pillaging families for their own ends. It ensures job security, lax oversight, and plenty of opportunity to exchange favors between judges and lawyers such as campaign contributions, minor’s counsel appointments, fee awards, and raiding family estates into bankruptcy to reward attorneys who cooperate with abusive and crooked judges.

There is no way that Mark Ciavarella and Michael Conohan could have gotten away with many years of denying legal representation and throwing kids in private prisons for kickbacks without the complicity of the lawyers appearing in their courtrooms. These crimes continued on the public records with “officers of the court” in full awareness of them for several years to the tune of $2.6 million in accumulated bribes.

While it is true that not every one of the abuses was immediately obvious, lawyers appearing in these courts clearly saw many that were but said nothing. Why is that? Money and self-interest. Stand up against a judge like these and they know they will be abused themselves, much like Judge Peter McBrien and many other family law judges abuse lawyers in their courtrooms who have annoyed by not bowing down to judicial tyrannical rantings. So they let it slide, probably thinking to themselves “poor kid, prison for writing something negative about a principal — but it’s not my problem.”

Yet it is only a matter of time before the growing corruption, abuse, and tyranny affect everybody. As Pastor Martin Niemöller said of the rise of fascist Nazi Germany:

“THEY CAME FIRST for the Communists,
and I didn’t speak up because I wasn’t a Communist.

THEN THEY CAME for the trade unionists,
and I didn’t speak up because I wasn’t a trade unionist.

THEN THEY CAME for the Jews,
and I didn’t speak up because I wasn’t a Jew.

THEN THEY CAME for me
and by that time no one was left to speak up.”

In America today, he might revise his speech:

“THEY CAME FIRST for the pot smokers,
and I didn’t speak up because I wasn’t a pot smoker.

THEN THEY CAME for the fathers,
and I didn’t speak up because I wasn’t a father.

THEN THEY CAME for the children,
and I didn’t speak up because I didn’t have children.

THEN THEY CAME for me
and by that time no one was left to speak up.”

Courts Make Systematic Use of Violence and Intimidation

Some may quibble about my use of the world “terrorism” applied to the actions of judges, perhaps mistakenly thinking that terrorists are people who blow up buildings, car bombs, or themselves to harm others. That is an overly restrictive use of the term.

Terrorism is often defined as the “systematic use of violence and intimidation to achieve some goal” or a “state of fear and submission produced by terrorism”. Clearly this is what the courts are doing when they take people’s children, property, and freedoms and deny them the rights to fair treatment, fair trials, and even simply to see their own children.

Families are scared to death of what the courts and government will do to harm their children and them and this drives the conflict levels in family law cases ever higher. They know that one false accusation, one biased judge, or even one non-criminal comment or action that can be spun or distorted can cost them decades of ruination with no recourse because they will be bankrupted and possibly in debtor’s prison (which is exactly where many unemployed or poor parents who are ordered to pay child support end up) after the courts get through with them. And they know the other parent is feeling the same plus all too often has already shown a willingness to use terrorist tactics against them. It feels like a life-and-death struggle because it is. This is a breeding ground for the “traditional terrorism” of blowing up things and killing people.

Origins of Terrorism

Terrorists generally arrive at their thinking from one of two directions. One is a belief they are above the law and want to assert their authority at any cost so long as it is to others. The Nazis, dictators like Kim Jong Il, and judges like McBrien fall into this camp. They see terror as a means to power. I call them opportunistic terrorists. Even Al Qaeda is arguably in this group, although they try to pretend they are not.

The other terrorists are largely those who are so severely oppressed, disenfranchised, and abused without anything resembling justice or due process that they see no way to correct the situation short of violent resistance to the oppressors. A few are those who are empathetic with such people even though they may not have personally been victims of these abuses. As a group, they see terror as a desperate measure of last resort to try to grasp the quickly disappearing last shreds of freedom and justice before they go out of reach forever. These are oppressed terrorists.


Oklahoma City National Memorial

Put aside your dislike for terrorists for a moment and ask why they become violent. Let’s focus for a moment on a well-known American terrorist, Timothy McVeigh, the man convicted of blowing up the Oklahoma City federal building in April 1995. As Gore Vidal wrote in his 2001 article The Meaning of Timothy McVeigh, the public does not really know the man as the government made sure to vilify him to distract from their own crimes. McVeigh was an extremist in his actions, but his genuine moral outrage at the murders committed by the US federal government in Waco, Texas, against the Branch Davidian cult and at Ruby Ridge against the family of isolationist Randy Weaver was on the mark. McVeigh was wrong to blow up a building with a second floor full of babies and small children. In his defense, he claimed he didn’t know about the day care. Whether you believe that or not, he was not wrong to be outraged at the crimes committed by American government against American citizens. McVeigh resorted to terrorism because he believed a message must be sent to the US government to stop abusing its citizens.

(from The Meaning of Timothy McVeigh)

For Timothy McVeigh, [Waco and Ruby Ridge] became the symbol of [federal] oppression and murder. Since he was now suffering from an exaggerated sense of justice, not a common American trait, he went to war pretty much on his own and ended up slaughtering more innocents than the Feds had at Waco. Did he know what he was doing when he blew up the Alfred P. Murrah Federal Building in Oklahoma City because it contained the hated [Feds]? McVeigh remained silent throughout his trial. Finally, as he was about to be sentenced, the court asked him if he would like to speak. He did. He rose and said, “I wish to use the words of Justice Brandeis dissenting in Olmstead to speak for me. He wrote, ‘Our government is the potent, the omnipresent teacher. For good or ill, it teaches the whole people by its example.’” Then McVeigh was sentenced to death by the government.

Those present were deeply confused by McVeigh’s quotation. How could the Devil quote so saintly a justice? I suspect that he did it in the same spirit that Iago answered Othello when asked why he had done what he had done: “Demand me nothing, what you know you know, from this time forth I never will speak word.” Now we know, too: or as my grandfather used to say back in Oklahoma, “Every pancake has two sides.”

Those responsible for such crimes, people such as current San Diego Sheriff William Gore, were never held accountable as the government whitewashed and covered up and later McVeigh bombed and killed the wrong people for the right reasons. Gore was one of those FBI agents who set the Ruby Ridge engagement rules to use deadly force without provocation. Now he’s a sheriff. Crime pays when you are a murderous thug working for the government, even if you aren’t a judge.

Courts Are Breeding Ground for Domestic Terrorism

Abusive and corrupt judges are terrorists themselves and encourage the spread of terrorism against citizens. But that is not all. Through their illegal and abusive actions, they are creating a whole slew of this potential oppressed terrorists. I say “potential” because so far very few of this egregiously oppressed people have engaged in terrorism despite having ample cause. It is frankly amazing that more Americans have not taken to bombings and assassinations of corrupt and abusive government officials. After all, what they are experiencing on an everyday basis at the hands of the government, and particularly the judiciary, is far more egregious that what is typically motivating those who are traditionally labelled as terrorists. Some teenage kid in an Islamic madrassas being indoctrinated to hate America probably hasn’t had his home taken, been tossed in prison, banned from seeing his kids, and all this because of lies and false accusations from some malicious ex-spouse or a social worker who took offense when a citizen didn’t bow and grovel.

Citizens were taught “innocent until proven guilty” is the law of the land. They were lied to by their teachers and the government as that is part of the old rag the US Constitution that judges, law enforcement, and the government no longer obey. “Accusations mean guilt” is the new law. If an average citizen is accused of a crime in the New United States, he or she will almost certainly be treated as a criminal for weeks, months, and even years without a trial. Doing so means the government has more power and they love power above all else.

Families Are Government’s Enemy #1

The government knows that people will do almost anything to protect their families. That means, in their twisted thinking, that families are a threat to the government. So now we have the rise of the Nazi Nanny state as a response. Family law and juvenile courts are two of the means by which the state splinters families and pits family members at each other’s throats. It is good for the government. That it is bad for the families does not matter to the government.

Don’t be fooled by all those “family value” politicians who neglect to do or say anything about the abuses the government is heaping upon families. They are simply posers, acting like they care about families when they want to destroy families, too. “No nudity on TV” or “rap music swearing should be banned” are not real family values. They are simply distractions from the actual dire problems being faced by American families today, families who are increasingly being gang-raped by the divorce industry, smashed by power-crazed or heterophobic CPS social workers, and harmed by numerous other fascist friends of the government.

Government Balkanizes Citizens, Wants To Spread Mutual Hate

Neither of the mainstream US political parties nor any mainstream parties in other Western nations address the destruction that governments have inflicted upon families and children with their ineffective and illegal policies that were falsely advertised as means to combat domestic violence, child abuse, and the impact of poverty upon children and families. If anything, it appears they have made the problems worse and more widespread.

Realize that worsening family problems is to the government’s advantage in its war on families. Balkanization of the population makes it harder for the people to resist illegal and abusive actions by the government. They have been wildly successful at getting their victims to fight each other rather than fight their common enemy. Pit mothers against fathers with children as pawns as you can be sure that people will fight to the death as the government and its friends gather the spoils of war.

Today, the United States stands at a crossroads. Its citizens can continue to head down the current path and see this nation and the futures of its children and grandchildren reduced to rubble. Or they can fight the oppressors to reclaim their futures. If there is success in the battlefields of the courts, legislation, and social awareness, there may yet be a way to fix the mess without a violent reaction. But make no mistake, there is ample reason for violent reaction already. The government has created a nuclear bomb that is nearing critical mass.

If this nation does not immediately engage en masse in peaceful opposition to the corrupt and abusive courts and government, it is only a matter of time before a growing number of the millions of oppressed turn to means used by the oppressed in other nations, and indeed in this one itself in the late 1700’s, to fight back against their oppressors. The policies of American governments are setting the stage for widespread internal terrorism against domestic governments and their allies.

Note by this I mean real terrorism, assassinations and blowing up government buildings, not what “Anonymums” and other sexist wackos who falsely label as “terrorists” the protesters from groups such as Fathers4Justice who camp out on bridges and cranes and government officials’ roofs in superhero costumes to raise public awareness while hurting nobody.

So far we have only seen relatively peaceful protests about the growing court injustices. Yet the government is already alarmed and moves to crush opponents with dishonest and criminal abuses of power in response to even small peaceful protests. Picket a judge’s house and maybe the aggrieved public can get a message through to the abuser to move on, but there’s no guarantee it will really be acted upon. Unfortunately, most of these abusive judges will not move on as their abuse and corruption are a lucrative racket for their friends and themselves.

Such real terrorism as shooting judges, blowing up courthouses, and slitting social workers’ throats will be the last desperate measure that many of the oppressed have to strike back at the system that is destroying the lives of their children and themselves. It would be far better to fix the problems in our society before such desperate acts become the last, best hope for many.

Young People At Higher Risk for Terrorism

Real terrorism of the desperate tends to be most popular with the young, people whose futures have been dashed and who are likely not parents. There are many cases of young men and women martyring themselves in suicide bombings against those they view as their oppressors. We may already be starting to see the first glimpses of this happening in our nations as our children whose futures have been ruined by the government strike back at the government. While there is very limited information available, the recent case of a child who took a bomb into a Child Protective Services building in Santa Cruz County, California, looks like it could be a spin job on one such failed incident. See Bomb Squad Detonates Device At SCC Agency and Pipe bomb destroyed at Santa Cruz County facility for a little more information.

There are also many other cases of the government showing up to take children away from families that result in tragic deaths. Even though there are undoubtedly some very bad parents, the statistics on deaths and abuse appear to show that children are more at risk in the CPS and foster care systems than with their biological parents. Parents know that and will defend their children with lethal force against the government, even at the expense of their lives. The case of Harley Norton (see Police: Canton Man Shoots at Police, Then Himself as Child Protective Services Arrives to Take His Children) may be one such example. Although the government has clearly painted the man as a violent criminal, those of us who have seen how the government operates know that they fabricate stories, tamper with and plant evidence, and gang up on anybody who questions their activities. In other words, piss off an abusive social worker and soon you may have a cop shoot you in the back.

No parent wants to see their children end up living a life of violence, nor to die from it. But the choice may soon be between violence and unrelenting oppression.

The founders of the United States chose violence over oppression. It is an entirely rational choice. This nation was born from the bloodshed of a fight against evil oppression. Today, the United States is engaged in evil oppression against its citizens. Violence is wasteful and ruinous, but eternal oppression is worse. As patriot and President Thomas Jefferson once said, The tree of liberty must be refreshed from time to time with the blood of patriots and tyrants.

Other “Democracies” Engage in Abusive Oppression

For our readers in other nations, don’t think you are safe just because you’re not living in fascist America. In the headlines in late 2009 was the story of a UK Scotland family, often called the “Dundee fat family”. The government there broke up the family and seized all the children. Their offense? They are obese. That was the excuse the UK government needed to take seven children from their parents, including a one day old newborn baby girl.

(from Newborn baby of 23st mother and her SIX siblings taken into care ‘over obesity fears’)

Note for readers outside of UK: The “st” unit of weight measurement stands for a “stone” which is about 6.35 kilograms or 13.97 pounds.

The family’s lawyer, Kathleen Price, said that the family had not been given a fair hearing, and had not been kept informed about the action taken by social workers.

‘There is a serious question here about how you ensure that the rights of the families are protected,’ she told The Times.

‘It is very difficult for the family to get a fair hearing if the social workers have got it wrong.

‘The [children’s panel] are very influenced by the social workers’ recommendations … The family is not being helped here, they have been systematically bullied and disempowered.’

A council spokesman said: ‘We will not comment in detail on any family with whom we are involved, but we have made it clear on numerous occasions that children would not be removed from a family environment just because of a weight issue.’

Obesity is a growing health problem, but the severely obese are often found to have genetic causes for high weight. Ripping children away from their family is likely to make them depressed and cause more weight problems. But a fascist government, be it in the US or the UK, doesn’t really care about children. They care about power, job security, and marginalizing opposition. Judging from the many comments from UK residents supporting the government, vilifying fat people as an excuse to prey on their children is widely approved of by the population.

No wonder George Washington wanted to shoot those oppressive red coated government stooges until they left innocent people alone. Unfortunately, today’s American government isn’t any better as power corrupts and corruption is the favorite game of governments in every nation.

    Phenomenal piece Angiemedia. Studied, balanced, and entirely accurate. America — if you believe you live in anything other than a fascist nation, you’re asleep. But most Americans have been for years, which is why we’re here.

    It’s easy to hide from the truth rather than fight for it. TV works. Sports are great. If that doesn’t work, call the psych. He’s got scrips that’ll make the horror feel not so bad.

    But if you have a pair, or if you’re aware and really care, fight. Fight now and fight hard. Otherwise they’ll be coming for you.

    And trust me, they are.

    Blessings and good luck to all.

    Excellent piece, I’ve read most of your pieces on the court and believe you are well studied and well balanced in your journalism and messages, and I’ve also experienced some of the injustices you write about and know many who have had the same and worse as well.

    If we as American citizens do not stand up and speak out about what the Government and bureaucracies are negatively doing, I believe things will only get worse. But as Naomi points out, there is hope, and we do need to stand up.

    I’ve studied Naomi’s video and book several times, and the question I couldn’t answer was “why?” Why would a government (i.e., the average joes down the street, and–>veryonlytheynot one.<

    Here's what Spence said–in 1999:

    "In this country we embrace the myth that we are still a democracy when we know that we are not a democracy, that we are not free, that the government does not serve us but subjugates us. Although we give lip service to the notion of freedom, we know the government is no longer the servant of the people but, at last, has become the people's master. We have stood by like timid sheep while the wolf killed-first the weak, then the strays, then those on the outer edges of the flock, until at last the entire flock belonged to the wolf. We did not care about the weak or about the strays. They were not a part of the flock. We did not care about those on the outer edges. They had chosen to be there. But as the wolf worked its way toward the center of the flock we discovered that we were now on the outer edges. Now we must look the wolf squarely in the eye. That we did not do so when the first of us was ripped and torn and eaten was the first wrong. It was our wrong."

    You're the flock. They're the wolf. Step out of line from what the wolf wants his ideal sheep to look like, and you'll get to know the meaning of "daily special" at the Sizzler.

    Welcome to the growling fascist America. Thank you Bush, Rumsfeld, Chaney, and the gang, and thanks to every dolt who didn't put their brains on a stick years ago.

    Great article!

    US soldiers swear an oath to defend the US Constitution from all enemies, foreign and domestic. They should ready to fight the criminals and tyrants in our government with deadly force if necessary.

    Look at what is happening to Richard Fine, a year and a half in prison without charges or a trial in violation of law because a corrupt judge and a powerful real estate developer tied to the corrupt LA County Board of Supervisors want him to die in prison.

    The US Supreme Court has ignored his pleas. Every level of court, from county to the top, has joined this corruption and violation of law. The military should target these people. The Constitution supersedes the Posse Comitatus Act.

    If you’re a soldier reading this, know this: you are being sent to die overseas in senseless wars because the tyrants at home don’t like the idea of you walking around on US soil, armed and having sworn to defend the citizens against enemies like them.

    Your oath *demands* you to fight this evil, an enemy far worse than the Taliban and Al Qaeda who have killed only a tiny fraction of the people the American tyrants have killed.

  5. Soldier’s Oath
    September 7th, 2010 at 02:42 | #5

    As a US soldier, I have a sworn duty to defend the nation against the enemies controlling our lands and denying us our freedoms and rights. American leaders are criminals who violate the basic rights clearly stated in the Constitution.

    The courts go after soldiers’ children every day. We are fed their propaganda and shipped out to fight and kill the people they call our enemies. Our real enemies are here in the US, not in Iraq and Afghanistan. We fight, bleed, and sometimes die to kill pretend enemies. In gratitude, they take our children away and let them be brainwashed to hate us. They make orders of protection against us saying we are violent men who cannot be trusted with our own children because we are soldiers.

    Soldiers will not get a fair shake in this country until the judges who attack us start to suffer the consequences. When they take our children and treat us as criminals for merely doing our jobs, we should take their lives. Old Testament Justice — take our lives, we will take theirs!

    Elections do not work. These same scum get reelected every term. American elections are rigged to have no competition.

    Our government blames Iraqis and Afghanis for the crimes of their governments. Why are Americans not to blame for the crimes of our government? We are to blame unless we fight to stop the crimes. Fight them every step, do not give an inch!

    I have studied this subject for a few years now, and this is the most accurate and insightful summary of the situation that I have read. Congratulations Naomi, and I salute your courage.

    We were subjected to the most tragic sequence of events in New Zealand – I encourage you to read our shocking summary:

    Our family was innocently sucked into social services and family court involvement through the activities of our teenage daughter in New Zealand. We are committed, capable, loving and well-educated parents for whom our family is top priority. Alarmingly, one day we discovered that adult men were having group sex with our 14-year old daughter, so we asked police to prosecute as sexual crimes had been committed. Police informed us that they could only prosecute the men under instruction from social services, so following their advice we reported the matter to social services.

    However social services’ view was that our 14-year old daughter’s group sex activities was “love and romance”, and within 30 minutes concluded that she should be removed from our home so that she could continue to explore her sexuality, unimpeded from family influence. They determined that as parents we had no right to protect our underage daughter from sexual criminals.

    We opposed our daughter’s removal with every effort we could, and only after we had obtained the assistance of several MPs, did social services agree to leave our family alone. However, realising they had no legal grounds to remove her they secretly encouraged our daughter to leave home on her own, promising her that when she was 16 the State would provide for all her needs on condition that she has no further contact with her family.

    As soon as she turned 16 our daughter left home, and the State financed her to live independently. They even prevented us from paying her school fees.

    What followed next was a chilling series of events. The State then financed our 16-year old daughter to take out gagging orders against her whole family – her parents and two brothers – thereby preventing us from seeking accountability for inappropriate State interventions. These gagging orders involved an attempt to set historical legal precedent in New Zealand because it required that she had to legally “divorce” her family and go into State care in order to gag her family. Details can be read if you Google: “Investigate magazine The Girl who wants to Divorce her Family”. (Investigate Oct 05, The Girl Who Wants To Divorce Her Parents)

    We opposed the gagging proceedings in the courts because the State financing a teenager to divorce a perfectly good family is a heinous concept, and because we require freedom of speech to seek accountability for the inappropriate State interventions in our family. At one point our daughter’s State funded lawyers dragged us through the secret courts in an attempt to have us imprisoned for allegedly breaking an interim gagging order, imposed while the court deliberated on whether to permanently gag us. Eventually we won the court cases, however the State had prolonged proceedings long enough so that our daughter was now 18 – an adult legally independent of family. In effect, through furtive means they had achieved their objective of keeping our child away from all family influence.

    The secret Family court made it very clear that they were quite prepared to send an innocent family to prison in order to keep us quiet at all costs. We were told we needed to be “re-educated”. We are not permitted to detail events inside the secret court, however our own lawyer concluded that we would never get a fair trial in New Zealand and advised that if we took proceedings to the High Court they too would not listen to a single word we had to say.

    Social services’ earlier actions in alienating our daughter against her family were hugely exacerbated by the numerous court cases to gag us. When the State pits a 16-year old girl against her whole family in protracted court gagging proceedings, the alienation effects are obvious and significant. We regard the State intervention in our family as severe child abuse. Top world expert psychologists concluded that our daughter is victim of Stockholm Syndrome – there is no other documented case of State intervention causing this syndrome where the victim acts similarly to some kidnapping victims who protect their kidnappers. We have received written comments from over 50 leading psychologists and counsellors condemning in the strongest terms the State intervention with our daughter.

    Our daughter is now 21, refuses to have any contact with her family, and encouraged by the State, she has changed her name. A description of the State activities which have alienated her from her family, would fill a sizeable book. Financially, our daughter appears to have done very well under State funding over the past 6 years. She has been well rewarded for her role in diminishing parent rights – as a full-time university student she rents her own house, drives an Audi, has a laptop computer, an iPhone, a huge range of expensive fashionable clothing, she parties a great deal, and travels extensively. With State help, she has enjoyed a lavish lifestyle far beyond her fellow students or what her family would have provided. Her lifestyle has clear evidence of the consequences of living independently from good family influence since 16, for example, while still at school she began a 4-year sexual relationship with a TV presenter/nightclub owner, almost twice her age, continuing even after his high-media-profile marriage. We learned this in 2010, when she sold the sordid details of this affair to a national magazine.

    Our eldest son, a quiet, reserved, sensitive boy, was dealt to with particular harshness and hostility during the secret Family court gagging procedures. He endured a heinous attack by the judge and lawyer during one court day, simply because he was our son. He had witnessed firsthand what social services did to his young sister, and experienced severe bullying in the secret courts despite never even being accused of doing anything wrong. Not long after the court cases he killed himself. The ex parte gagging orders taken out against our two sons without them being permitted to defend, still exist today.

    A large number of laws have been broken by the State in their involvement with our family, both inside and outside the secret courts. In effect, we lost two children – one dead and one severely alienated. We have fully documented our experiences, however, the State effectively silenced us and prevented us from seeking redress or publicising our ordeal. To date, no one has yet been held to account.

    Our multiple secret court appearances left us frightened and afraid, and concluding that it is too dangerous to live in a country where one has no protection from the law. We had endured two years of secret court terror, at the hands of a delinquent teenager empowered by a team of State-financed, ideologically-driven lawyers. Even though we eventually won the court cases, the total disregard for the rule of law inside the secret court fills us with fear. The very day we won the last court case we began packing our bags – we uprooted our high-tech business, and we left the country. The business now employs Londoners instead of Aucklanders.

    Prospective immigrants into NZ should be warned that their families may suffer the same fate as ours if they try to protect their underage daughters from sexual criminals.

    History shows that details of atrocities tend to eventually emerge (Anne Franks for example). Only then does the country learn the lessons and improve. If the details of our experience were ever to emerge onto the world stage, New Zealanders would hang their heads in shame. Politicians should realize that evil thrives under suppression and secrecy, to the country’s detriment. Creating a great nation, requires openness and freedom of expression, so that evil is exposed, lessons are learned and improvements made.

    Germany had it’s Nuremberg trials, South Africa had it’s Truth and Reconciliation Commission – hopefully one day society will have a just forum where families such as ours can seek redress. We believe this is our only chance to begin to reverse the damage to our daughter. Our life goals have been shattered, and never a day goes by without us suffering the consequences of the actions of social services and the secret family court.

    Our experiences raise several important questions which society needs to address:
    1. Should parents have the right to protect their children from sexual criminals?
    2. Should the State be permitted to gag an innocent family in order to cover-up illegal and reprehensible State activities?
    3. What recourse does a family have against illegal activities committed against them inside a secret court?
    4. Society abhors child abuse, rightly dealing harshly with parents who abuse their children. Should the same harsh penalties also apply to State employees who cause severe child abuse through illegal and inappropriate intervention?
    5. What international avenues are available to an individual family seeking redress for State atrocities?

      Dave, that is a shocking story! I added the link to the article you were discussing so that others can find it. Thanks for sharing!

    @ Dave

    I recall reading months ago about a UK court that banned grandparents from discussing, even in court, evidence of child abuse that they believed meant their grandchild should be placed with them.

    In the US, the recent Serenity Gandara murder led to CPS taking another child away from a grandparent who complained about how CPS ignored warnings that Serenity was being abused.

    Government has way too much power and abuses people with that power. “Speak up and you may lose your children and your freedom” is the lesson being blasted into citizens’ minds.
