It is this kind of shiznit, this total ballsnatch, that undermines any notions of a legal system!
What is this about? This judge is considering taking the children away from both parents because, and his only reasons are, they can’t get along and they can’t agree on anything.
“You can’t get along, you can’t agree…you can’t agree…you can’t get along,” are the only reasons he could state!
I have often wondered what would be the remedy for the courts if the parents appear to know nothing about what’s best for the child. I would hope that the court system, in this type of situation, would have something in place to help the parents. There always seems to be a program somewhere for some reason. I’m sure there are parenting classes and educational programs that can teach parents how to raise their children.
But, the court oversteps its bounds when it removes the children from both homes simply because the parents can’t agree and can’t get along. There was a solution when I went to court, give one full custody and the other gets visitation. It wasn’t the best solution, but my daughter didn’t go to foster care.
This wreaks! It really does! There is something else in play on this one and I’d like to know what it is. Is money involved? Is a system in place that gets compensated for placing children in foster care?
Draconian Law by the way, which is something the judge mentions in his condescending tone, are very heavy punishments for even the smallest of crimes. Draco wrote the law of Athens, 7th Century BC. It was put in place because prior to that the law was oral and it was interpreted whimsically. Draconian Laws though were written so harshly that they called for death for even minor offenses. Plus, the laws were flexible when it came to who you were. The lower class had different laws from the upper class.
Therefore, Draconian Law is considered “Cruel and Unusual” punishment in America, to the U.S. Constitution, which this judge is “elected” to interpret. Cruel and unusual punishment is in violation of the 8th Amendment. Therefore, this judge needs removed by the evidence we have in video, by his own words. The children need restored to their parents and let’s start the custody proceedings again, only this time with a judge who is actually sane!
I love this list of questions that brings to light a few interesting matters. From the grandmother’s perspective:
By the way, after reading through the Granny Leaks site, it seems this matter is sufficiently resolved. But, how many others go on like this unnoticed and no one has any power to do anything about it?
