Just found the below press release today, and even though it is a few days past, I still felt it should be posted and shared out.
FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE
American Mothers Political Party
March 20, 2012
Mothers are the natural guardians of children as Corrine Baker was when she used her own body as a shield to try and protect her child, Dominick Calhoun.
Neighbors ignored her screams and authorities said Baker did not do “enough” to protect her son from a fatal beating inflicted by her then-live-in boyfriend, Brandon Joshua-Frederick Hayes, who was sentenced to life in prison without the possibility of parole for torture, murder and child abuse. This is what second degree (scapegoating) manslaughter looks like is when a woman endures this kind of beating trying to protect her child.
It has been duly noted that those supporting and those who are the purported “creators” of Dominick’s Law and the recent threats that have been made against those that support Dominick’s mother. We are not deterred.
According Michigan Legislature:
(g) "Serious mental harm" means an injury to a child's mental
condition or welfare that is not necessarily permanent but results
in visibly demonstrable manifestations of a substantial disorder of
thought or mood which significantly impairs judgment, behavior,
capacity to recognize reality, or ability to cope with the ordinary
demands of life.
“Dominick's Law” will only justify what Michigan has done to this battered mother who tried to protect her child and all future domestic abuse victims. In essence, the pseudo-scientific theory of Parental Alienation Syndrome (PAS) will be legal in Michigan if this law is passed the way it is currently written. What is “enough” to protect a child from harm?
American Mothers Political Party is not just mothers but fathers, sisters aunts, daughters, sons, nieces, nephews, family, friends, coworkers and neighbors who support battered mothers and their rights to raise their children.
Until human mothers are honored or recognized as the natural guardians of her children, no rights will exist for any one. “Mother” is the cry of the dying soldier on the battlefield, “Mother” is the first person everyone sees when they are born, all other species “get this” - all except the terribly wrong and failed “human experiment”' of the murder of motherhood, and everyone's else’s rights over mother nature’s.
AMPP will not support this law as it is currently written and will continue to denounce those that mean to do the supporters of mothers harm.
AMPP stands in support of Corrine Baker. Authorities said Baker did not do enough to protect her son from a fatal beating inflicted by her then-live-in boyfriend, Brandon Joshua-Frederick Hayes, who was sentenced to life in prison without the possibility of parole for torture, murder and child abuse. ALTHOUGH SHE USED HER BODY AS SHIELD.
Take a Look at what 2nd degree (scapegoating) manslaughter is when you endure this kind of beating trying to PROTECT her CHILD.The DA is scapegoating the Calhoun's are scapegoating and Dominick's law will only JUSTIFY what MI has done to this battered mom who tried to protect!! 15-30 years!! Scapegoating!!!
