Killer Dad Defended in Comments .... UGH

This is an old article... but I wanted to share it... as just another example of a Killer Father!  The commenter's defending this man are unbelievable!  I’m glad there were several that spoke up and said that there is NO excuse for killing an innocent child.  I must note... the court had ended the joint parenting and had given the mother sole custody... so for once the court gets it right and this bad dad kills the kid anyway.  My heart goes out to the mom and her family!!

SOMERSET, Calif. -- Authorities say the bodies of a missing 2-year-old Sacramento girl and her father have been found in the man's vehicle in a rural area of El Dorado County.

FBI Special Agent John Cauthen told the Associated Press the bodies of Madeline Samaan-Fay and 49-year-old Mourad "Moni" Samaan were discovered in his green Toyota 4Runner.

The vehicle was found on private property behind a chained and locked gate.

A California HIghway Patrol helicopter spotted the vehicle. Investigators from the El Dorado County Sheriff's Department were the first to confirm two bodies inside.

"To have the case end up like this, it's tough," said El Dorado County Sheriff''s spokesman Bryan Golmitz.

Cauthen says the cause and time of the deaths is not immediately known. Investigators from the El Dorado County Sheriff's Department and the FBI are working on this case. Investigators are expected at the scene throughout the weekend, said Cauthen..

The FBI issued an Amber Alert Friday for the toddler. She was last seen Aug. 7 with her father in a Sacramento grocery store.

Samaan was served the day before with a notice that the girl's mother was awarded full custody of their daughter, ending what had been a joint custody arrangement, Cauthen said.

He then failed to return the child to her mother as expected.

Samaan had not been charged with a crime.

The mother didn't report the girl missing until Tuesday, the Associated Press reported.

When No One Listens

This is EXACTLY what happens when no one listens to abuse victims!!  Educate yourself and others... I’m not feeling sorry for the abusers that this teen boy killed, I feel sorry for the boy.  For what HE had to endure before he finally broke and had to take matters into his own hands because NO ONE LISTENED all those years ago!!

From Dastardly Dads:

The mom lost custody of this boy nine years ago, right after she divorced the father. Her description of the marriage paints a distinct picture of a controlling abuser: Isolated her at home, wouldn't "allow" her to see friends. Strict "disciplinarian" who was "severe" with her and the child (i.e. physically violent). Unfortunately, Mom blames what she calls a severe depression for why she lost custody. In reality, feelings of hopelessness and despair are normal and predictable among abuse survivors--especially when the abuser goes on to take their children away from the mother and cut off all contact (must have total control, you know). And none of this can take place unless the courts aid and abet the abuser. But the article doesn't go into that....
And now the son is accused of killing his father, CHRISTIAN LIEWALD.
Who are the people who wouldn't listen to this mother? Let's name names, shall we?
Homicide suspect's mother says warning signs were there

CHARLOTTE, N.C. -- The mother of a teenager charged with killing his father and stepmother says she could see trouble coming, even when he was a child.
Shelby Hodges told Eyewitness News that she has not seen her son, Matthew Liewald, for nine years, since she and her husband Christian Liewald divorced.
Early Monday morning police said Matthew shot and killed Christian Liewald and his wife Cassie at their home south of Pineville, and Hodges said she knew when she saw the story on the news that her son might have been involved.
"I saw it. I recognized the street name. I told my husband, I said, 'It's Matthew,'" Hodges said.
She held a picture of Matthew when he was a toddler and spoke about the boy's father, who had been severe with her and his son.
"(Christian) isolated me when I lived with him, when I was married to him. I wasn't allowed to see my friends," Hodges said.
She said Liewald took the same strict approach to discipline with Matthew, and when the couple divorced she lost custody of the boy because she was severely depressed.
She said that she was concerned when she heard that Christian Liewald and his wife Cassie had taken Matthew out of school and that his intense parenting may have pushed the teen over the edge.
"I think he snapped. I think he just had more abuse than he could handle, and I just hope that now someone will listen to me," she said.
"This is a mother's nightmare. If people had listened to me when I was begging them to help me, it wouldn't have gotten this far."

Fort Myers shooting suspect connected to 2009 murder


Connell Carroll, the suspect in both murders, is still at large.  There is a number at the end of the below news article to call if you have any information.  Please disseminate far and wide and bring this guy in this time, so that no more women are killed by him... and no more children left with out a mom because of him.

A woman has died after being shot in the leg during an argument on Sunday afternoon.

Fort Myers Police responded to a home on 1400 block of Brookhill Drive just before 4:00 p.m. on Sunday to find 22-year-old Nicole Smith suffering from the gunshot wound.

EMS responders were unable to stabilize her, and she died as a result of her injury.

Neighbors say Smith was holding her newborn when she was shot.

Fort Myers Police are looking for her boyfriend, 32-year-old Connell Carroll, saying he's wanted for second degree murder.

"Our investigation has revealed that the victim, Miss Smith, and her boyfriend, Connell Carroll, had gotten into an argument and she received a gunshot wound that ultimately led to her dying," said Detective Peter Tarman.

Connell Carroll was also connected to the murder of Danielle Blackburn on February 10th, 2009.

He was never arrested.

Danielle's family says they weren't shocked when they heard the news.

"I knew it was gonna happen. I've been telling people it was going to happen," says Danielle's father Don Blackburn.

Danielle was murdered while her daughter slept in the next room.

"He took two young mothers. That's two children without a mother," Don says.

Crysten Blackburn is Danielle's sister-in-law. She had met Carroll on several occasions and says he was quiet and reserved.

"Was he the type of person who would inflict harm on women? When I met him I came to talk to Danielle and he didn't leave the room when I was speaking to Danielle. He was next to her the entire time," she says.

After Danielle's murder, police couldn't find enough evidence to arrest Carroll.

Now, after another woman is dead, Danielle's family blames the judicial system.

Darin Blackburn, Danielle's brother, claims Carroll never completed a mandatory battery course that would have helped him.

"I told police that if they didn't do something it would happen again," he says.

Neither Danielle's nor Nicole's daughters were harmed during the shootings. Both are staying with family members.

If you have any information on the whereabouts of Connell Carroll, you're asked to call the Fort Myers Police Department, or Crime Stoppers at 1-800-780-TIPS.

Press Release May 6th, 2011 Historic Day at the US Supreme Court Washington DC 12 NOON


May 5, 2011


PRESS CONFERENCE May 6th, 2011 at 12 Noon


US Supreme Court    

One First Street, NE                                 

Washington, DC 20543                         

Sidewalk in front of the US Supreme Court


Child Advocates and Legal Scholars are anxiously awaiting the filing of a Petition for Writ of Certiorari on May 6, 2011 at 12 noon at the US Supreme Court in Washington, D.C. in the Sacks v. Sacks case.

This truly will be an  Historic Day at the US Supreme Court, for  America’s children and their “Protective Parents”, as this landmark case is being hand delivered by a Florida Mother and exposes a national crisis all over the US.

The Sacks v. Sacks case is the perfect opportunity for the US Supreme Court to thoroughly explore and address the issue of Battered Mothers and child abuse, and their documented evidence of “protective parents” losing custody  and the failure of family courts and Child Protective Services to thoroughly investigate and handle Domestic Violence, child sexual/and or child physical abuse cases properly, therefore resulting in a verdict, contrary to the “bests interests of the child(ren)”.

Kathleen Russell, from the Center for Judicial Excellence, in the California Progress Report, on 10/19/09 “When Family Courts Get It Wrong”, says “When a parent harms his or her own child, family courts are supposed to step in and safeguard the victim. Can you imagine what a tragedy it would be if courts awarded custody to the wrong parent Actually according to one conservative estimate, more than 58, 000 children a year are court ordered by family courts into unsupervised visitation contact with physically or sexually abusive parents following a divorce in the U.S. The fact that this type of scandal is taking place in the American justice system defies the imagination. Not since the Roman Catholic Church pedophile scandal has the US seen this type of institutional harm inflicted on innocent children.” (www.centerforjudicalexcelllence.org)

The National Organization for Women, NOW and the NOW Ad Hoc Law Committee are  addressing this issue and in their Spring 2011,  “and explore what can happen to  a protective mother and her children when she does nothing more than to protect her children”, as quoted on page 36 of the Petition for Certiorari.

The Petitioner, in the US Supreme Court case, Linda Marie Sacks, has been chosen as the “Poster Mother” of the Family Court Crisis, is interviewed for the article.(www.now.org) Click on the Family Law Spring Newsletter.

On April 21, 2011,  in the BMCCVI Digest Number 2011, reports that Eileen King representing Justice for Children participated in the Office of Violence Against Women Roundtable Discussion that took place at George Washington University Law School. The Roundtable was organized by Rita Smith, the Director of the National Coalition Against Domestic Violence and Prof. Joan Meier, Director of the Domestic Violence Legal Empowerment and Appeals Project (DVLEAP) at GWU Law School. OVW will post a report about the Roundtable on their website in the near future. (www.justiceforchildren.org) and (www.dvleap.org)

As noted by Barry Goldstein, Esq. The Office of Violence Against Women (OVW) is part of the US Justice Department that provides grants for programs to reduce and prevent domestic violence. They recently sponsored a forum for their staff and other professionals in various parts of the government to learn about the crisis in the custody court system.

“It was a discussion based upon current scientific research and actual experiences that courts are routinely making catastrophic mistakes in failing to protect children and domestic violence survivors.

Linda Marie Sacks, a Florida Mother, truly the “All American Mom”, has only seen her children at the Family Tree House Visitation Center for  82 hours in the last 4 years and 2 months, is challenging the “Best Interests of The Children” Statute 61.13,  as Domestic Violence, child sexual and physical abuse must be considered in a judge’s decision determining the “Best Interests of the Children”. In the Pro se Cert  Petition, Sacks raises  the constitutional implications of a fit parent to the care, custody, of her children, and without a finding of unfitness by clear and convincing evidence, established by the US Supreme Court ruling in Santosky v. Kramer, U.S. 745, 769-770 (1982).

Her daughters said in April 2007, “Mommy fight for us and do something every day to get us back and don’t ever stop”. Their Mother not only kept her promise to them, but now is a national spokesperson on the child custody crisis, and is speaking up for her children, and all of America’s children affected by the failure of our justice system to protect our most innocent children from sexual and physical abuse. She is a formidable legal opponent, as she has been self taught, going to “Internet Law School” to continue her legal challenge after spending $140,000 to undo an unjust custody decision. The Fifth District Court of Appeals REVERSED and REMANDED the issue of child custody back to the lower court  for a violation of the Petitioners constitutional rights to due process, in 08/08. This rare reversal provided no relief as the lower court of Judge Shawn L. Briese refused to abide by the Appeals court and refused to protect the children and said one child lied about being sexually abused.

In an article by John Weiss, from Post-Bulletin, Rochester, MN , “Do children lie about sexual abuse? Not Usually.” Children do lie, but seldom about being abused. “All human beings can and do lie, but it’s hard for kids to do it about sex”, said Victor Vieth, the director of the national Child Protection Training Center at Winona State University. “They can’t lie about something they have no knowledge of” he said, and children don’t learn about oral sex from Sesame Street.

Dr. Deborah Day of Psychological Affiliates, the court ordered custody evaluator said the minor child at 8 years old had pediatric bipolar and that negates any child sexual abuse, and then  thwarted the DCF investigation. The court record clearly showed that the child DID NOT have bipolar, but  the trial court still refused to protect the children, which is typical from cases all over the US.

One day justice will prevail for America’s children. Could it be in the Sacks v. Sacks case?

National Advocacy groups and Mothers will be attending events to shed light on this crisis in America’s Courts.

Mothers Day, May 8th, 2011  in Washington DC will also have the Mothers of Lost Children from 6-9:30 PM at the White House. 

6:00-9:30 p.m.

6:00 pm speak out

7:00 pm march

7:45 Candlelight vigil

Information will be available on Sunday night about activities on Monday.

And another group will be having the:

Million Mom March Mother’s Day 2011 in Washington DC

The Sacks v. Sacks is an historic case.

Complaint Letter about The Family Court System


Within the compass of this letter, I can do no more than indicate, as concisely as I can, relevant considerations that must be taken into account if we are to discuss Family Court's unconscionable rulings and decisions in a rational manner. Before I start, however, I should state that to understand what Family Court's particularly unrealistic form of adversarialism has encompassed as a movement and as a system of rule, we have to look at its historical context and development as a form of stinking politics that first arose in early twentieth-century Europe in response to rapid social upheaval, the devastation of World War I, and the Bolshevik Revolution. If you were to tell Family Court that we have to start talking with one another honestly, in honest language, it'd just pull its security blanket a little tighter around itself and refuse to come out and deal with the real world. As oppressive as Family Court's functionaries may be, they are also high-handed headcases. Perhaps one day we will live in a world where good people are not troubled by fear of adversarial goof-offs. Until that day arrives, however, we must spread the word that Family Court has announced its intentions to hasten the destruction of our civilization. While doing so may earn Family Court a gold star from the mush-for-brains irreligionism crowd, mass anxiety is the equivalent of steroids for it. If we feel helpless, Family Court is energized and ramps up its efforts to twist the history, sociology, and anthropology disseminated by our mass media and in our children's textbooks.

If anything, we must defy the international enslavement of entire peoples. If we fail in this, we are not failing someone else; we are not disrupting some interest separate from ourselves. Rather, it is we who suffer when we neglect to observe that Family Court justifies its brusque threats with fallacious logical arguments based on argumentum ad baculum. In case you're unfamiliar with the term, it means that if we don't accept Family Court's claim that everyone who scrambles aboard the Family Court bandwagon is guaranteed a smooth ride then it will twist my words six ways for Sunday. Family Court, get a life! Family Court's faculty for deception is so far above anyone else's, it really must be considered different in kind as well as in degree. Family Court yields to the mammalian desire to assert individuality by attracting attention. Unfortunately, for Family Court, "attracting attention" usually implies "wrecking our country, derailing our civilization, and threatening the human race with extinction".

If Family Court can't be reasoned out of its prejudices, it must be laughed out of them. If Family Court can't be argued out of its selfishness, it must be shamed out of it. Knowledge is the key that unlocks the shackles of bondage. That's why it's important for you to know that the time has come to choose between freedom or slavery, revolt or submission, and liberty or Family Court's particularly nit-picky form of quislingism. It's clear what Family Court wants us to choose, but if its neo-improvident, irritable positions became more widespread, it would spell the ruination of this country. Last but not least, most pundits are uncertain about the magnitude of the threat posed by Family Court's proposed social programs.
