Ben Vonderheide of Daddy Justice  is well on the way to assembling a documentary film of his experiences dealing with the abusive courts and government in Lancaster County, Pennsylvania. We summarized his story in our article Ben Vonderheide Exposes Pennsylvania’s Abusive Child Profiteering Racket  last week. While Vonderheide particularly identifies with these abuses being done against fathers, he’s clearly aware of the state attacking and destroying mothers, too, as evidenced by various videos he’s produced and put on his website.
Below is what he has been calling a “trailer” for his movie. At over 21 minutes, it’s much longer than the typical trailer. It features Vonderheide, his son Quinta, and many of the dirty players in the Lancaster County courts and government, and his ex Wendy Flanders and her new boyfriend, Ted Yoder, both of whom were convicted for filing false police reports to get Vonderheide falsely arrested. Video that Ben recorded was important evidence for obtaining the convictions. Flanders then was given probation, rather than jail time, and sole custody of their son. The message is that false accusations pay in Lancaster.
Apparently making malicious false accusations isn’t unusual for people in Lancaster. Vonderheide and his camera operators have captured many moments of the people in this system coming at him and even physically attacking him, yelling, screaming, threatening, and acting far worse than Vonderheide has. Some of them appear to be attempting to frame him for assault.
Being video recorded in public locations upsets a lot of them severely. It seems to draw out their true colors via aggressive behaviors and making threats to get their way. It’s really not much different than what TV news journalists, reality TV show camera crews, and professional documentary producers do on a routine basis. The difference might be that these people know they are in the wrong and don’t want publicity about their actions.
What they have in common is that many of them become irate about being video recorded. But Lancaster reportedly has 70 video cameras around the city in public areas with another 95 on the way , possibly one of the most extensive video surveillance networks in the country for a city this size. In the view of the powers-that-be in Lancaster, it is a great idea for the government to watch, monitor, and record the public, but it is not OK for the public to do the same to them.
About a minute and a half into the video, there’s an interview with a mother who essentially says that if mothers don’t want their kids to see their fathers, then fathers shouldn’t see them any more. They should go have other children with other women. This is truly appalling and disgusting. Not all mothers feel that way, but it is disturbing that any parent thinks in this manner regardless of gender.
About four minutes in, there’s a sad observation from Quinta — “the older you get, the more you get hurt.”
Some may say Ben is pretty rude to several of the people in the video. But as he points out, they have been violating children’s and parent’s rights to severely damage their relationship and harm them personally in violation of any semblance of justice or civil rights. They seem to be doing it for personal gain and don’t care if they hurt innocent people. Of course they don’t want that exposed.
Ben has explained to us in an email his plans are for this movie and related video documentary efforts.
Thanks for posting the Daddy Justice video.
We are currently assembling our “finish crew” and determining venue and distribution partners.
Now in post production for the full length big screen documentary, specifically securing completion funding, and final edit.
In that this issue is fast arising to critical mass, especially through high profile cases — we are in talks to produce a reality series immediately to capitalize on the current model due to the “in the can” production values.
