Judge Lori B. Jackson seeks to gag AVfM

As many of you who follow this site are aware, Lt. Col. Joel Kirk and his two minor children have been going through an unjust ordeal at the hands of the West Virginia Family Court presided over by Judge Lori B. Jackson.

In several articles published here, we have presented documentation of the abuse of those two children at the hands of their mother, Tina Taylor Kirk. We have also provided proof, through court documentation, that despite their mistreatment by a mentally unstable, alcoholic mother, that Jackson reversed a previous judge’s ruling giving custody to their father, and instead issued an order that effectively gave full custody to their abuser. Simultaneously, Jackson issued a gag order on the video documentation of the children’s abuse in order to keep it from public view.

It has been through the activism of AVfM’s Judicial Accountability Committee (JAC), that the audio portion of that evidence, as well as all relevant court documents, have been made available to the public through the avoiceformen.com website.

In what we believe is an effort to reverse that activism, and censor free speech, an injunction was filed today with the intent of enjoining both Lt. Col. Kirk and avoiceformen.com from publishing any more references to the Kirk children, and compelling avoiceformen.com to remove materials already present on the site.

The injunction was filed by Attorney Mary Snead, Guardian Ad Litem for the Kirk children in the divorce case.

At this point we can only speculate why Snead, who was the one who originally documented the ongoing abuse of the Kirk children by their mother, is now seeking to have that report gagged from public view.

Well, actually we can do a little more than speculate given the following actions by Judge Jackson.

In a stunning move, Jackson issued an order that Joel Kirk appear in her court this Thursday, October 4, 2012 at 9 A.M., effectively giving him two days to secure council to represent him there. We happen to know that Judge Jackson is aware that Lt. Col. Kirk’s lawyer lives more than a two-hour drive from her court, and that the possibility of getting him there on such short notice would be near impossible. She also knows that there are few to no attorneys in Kirk’s immediate area suitable to represent him in this matter.

In fact, she tips her hand and demonstrates this awareness in a handwritten note to Snead on the order, informing her that Kirk would be in court representing himself. She decided, before the hearing was even scheduled, that Kirk would stand before her without legal representation.

In other words, she is railroading Kirk into her court without representation so she can use the full authority of her position, unimpeded, to extract revenge against him for going public with his case.

Similarly, Jackson also wants to intimidate AVfM into cowering and surrendering our rights to free speech, as well as freedom of the press.

We have no intention of allowing that to happen.

One thing appears abundantly clear. From a personal standpoint I will tell you, readers, that I no more believe that Mary Snead was the actual source of filing this injunction than bricks float. It is evident, in the power play of local politics, that Mary Sneed has been cornered and is now protecting her standing in her own peer group. I fully believe she acted under the direction of Judge Jackson, selling out the children she once tried to protect as Guardian Ad Litem, in order to comply with Jackson’s wish to erase the public record of her malfeasance.

Dr. Tara Palmatier, who has done much research and writing on this story, had this to say:

Ms. Snead claims that publicizing this case is hurting the children. This is absurd. Snead (or Judge Jackson using Snead as her mouthpiece) is asserting that reporting the truth of the children’s abuse by their mother is harming them, while neglecting the fact that what is most harmful to the children is their continued abuse by their mother. The logic is completely backwards.

The Kirk children already know the truth about their mother. They are being forced by Judge Jackson to live with their abuser every other week and full-time when their father is deployed. The truth is not hurting the children. Having to live with their abuser after telling Ms. Snead, their therapist and other evaluators the truth about being abused by her is what is hurting the children. Judge Jackson’s malfeasance, incompetence and abuse of power are also hurting the Kirk children.

The only people being hurt by reporting the truth about this case are Judge Lori B. Jackson, Tina Taylor Kirk and her attorneys, Thomas G. Smith and Jamison Cooper. It wouldn’t be the first time corrupt family court officials tried to silence the truth and protect themselves by dressing it up in “the best interests of the children.”

If Judge Jackson truly cared about the welfare of these kids, she would not have given any custody beyond supervised visitation to their abuser. It is also very telling that Judge Jackson completely disregarded Ms. Snead’s original incredibly damning report that full custody be awarded to the children’s father, yet has made the time to haul the Lt. Col. into her courtroom in less than 48 hours at Ms. Snead’s recommendation that the truth of Judge Jackson’s rulings be suppressed. Very telling indeed.

As we have from the beginning, AVfM and the JAC will stand behind Lt. Col Kirk and his children. We have not been served any legal notice in accordance with due process and are currently under no obligation to remove or amend any material on this website.

If we do face any legal actions designed to censor our Constitutional right to free speech, we will fight it vigorously. We do not believe that a family court in West Virginia has the injunctive authority to censor a website in Texas for publishing properly redacted court documents even if it attempts to do so under the disingenuous guise of protecting children. Nor do we believe that any laws that may give them that authority are Constitutional.

This is a very important fight. The purpose of AVfM and the JAC is expose corruption and bias in our family courts. If that corruption is allowed to be cloaked from the public view, under the false auspices of protecting children those courts are actually harming, the battle could be lost.

We will provide more information and court documents as they become available.

To all websites and bloggers. AVfM extends blanket permission to reprint all articles on this site associated with the Kirk story and to download and distribute all the supportive documentation.  No need to ask. Just proceed with our thanks, and the knowledge that the truth about our family courts cannot be hidden from the public any more.

Also, the AVfM petition call for an impeachment hearing regarding Judge Jackson’s conduct is nearing the 1,000 signature goal. There was never a more important time to sign if you have not already done so.

If you have signed, please post the petition to your facebook and other social networking pages, to your blogs and websites. There should be many thousands of signatures on this petition, and there will be if enough people of good conscience get involved.

    Let’s hope this desperate and tyrannical move by the Dishonorable Lori B. Jackson blows up in her face.

    Much strength to the Col. this Thursday. He should be able to get a continuance – that is, if he were dealing with a clean judge.

    • Rog

      i have a question Dr.T,, or anyone who might know.
      i know that all the documents are already on the web so they cant do any thing to Mr Kirk for that.
      but can they do anything about him publicizing the gag order? like arrest him when he shows up in her courtroom? or arrest him for the actions of AVFM as a participant in the group effort?

      • http://www.shrink4men.com/ Dr. Tara J. Palmatier

        Technically, the Col. isn’t publicizing the case, AVFM and other websites are. Then again, this judge isn’t exactly exercising and abiding by the laws she has sworn to uphold. She seems to be exercising and abiding by “Soviet law.”

        • harrywoodape

          “Soviet Law” was the first to bring no-fault divorce into play…back in 1917. The stated aim of this was to destroy the family. The family was deemed an obstacle to state control and production.
          “Soviet Law” is what US family courts have been running with since the late 60′s.
          So Judge Jackson would be acting to script to launch a blackout on truth and AVfM.
          We are getting closer to the removal of the mask of our governors…where they can no longer pretend to be interested in justice or right. The do as you like..just dont hurt anybody era is over and the do as we say era is at hand.

    • Primal

      Best thing these judicial cockroaches could have ever have done…for HIM, for his KIDS, and For US that is. Hope they keep fighting so thoughtlessly. This is throwing oil on the fire…because there is simply nothing that generates more commitment to see this thing through than ironic and evil stunts like these.

      This is, indeed, a very important fight…and it’s one they are going to lose resoundingly…since sunshine is the best disinfectant…and since even tyrannical judges don’t have the power to turn off the sun.

      “Kafkaesque” courtroom farces like this Stalinist judge’s fiasco belong in the “theater of the absurd” and not some American courtroom.

      How easily we gave this world away…but no more.

    • Mellaril

      Any news on the disposition of the hearing?

  • Man

    Not sure how I feel about this yet. Could be the GAL is simply protecting the children, and earlier in the case it was reported the GAL and their report actually helped (or tried helping) the father and children. It appears this is coming totally from the GAL.

    • TigerMan

      Do you think this attempt to gag is in the children’s best interests or not?
      If not how is the GAL protecting the children?
      If you think the gag would protect the children’s best interests could you explain how please?

          Paul – google “whore of the court GAL” and you will find an entire CHORUS of crickets chirping!

          Why would this “GAL” do something like this?

          JOB SECURITY. She’ll lose her cushy fat-assed court whore gig for being an “unfriendly” to the court.

          WHY did she even tell the truth in the first place? Covering her ass – she KNEW it would be ignored. She KNEW it made no difference – until NOW.

      • OneHundredPercentCotton

        This is not being done in the interests of the children, it is being done in the interests of the GAL only.

    • harrywoodape

      Children are not protected in any way by secrecy about a situation in which they are bring abused or neglected. Really they are not.
      A big reason why family court is harmful to families and kids is because the judges get away with doing what they do in near privacy. A light needs to be shone down on these abattoirs and the judges that preside over them to get this system to change.
      Thank god for AVfM for doing that.
      I have attended family docket court as an observer. It’s often empty except for court personnel and victims and it’s interesting to see how the judges seem to behave differently when the public is watching what goes on.
      I am considering starting a weekly walk down to my local family court and invite others along to merely sit and observe.
      I think that is an effective start to a movement to start paying attention to your local family court and just what they are doing these days…bring your own barf bags.

    • OneHundredPercentCotton

      The GAL has realized this could hamper further contracts($$$$$$$) from court cases where she is deemed a “trouble maker” by not going along with the status quo.

  • Kimski

    Didn’t Mary Kellet attempt to do the same thing, without any luck?

    They really don’t like bright light, do they?

    • TPH

      Oh, they will try and continue to censor. Any corrupt official could do nothing else. They have to because their actions and deeds are immoral and illegal and they know it.

      • Kimski

        I agree, but this gag-attempt is completely futile, no matter how much pressure she applies to the involved parties.

        WTF is she going to do to silence people living in Japan, Scandinavia, New Zealand, Australia, Canada, Brittain, and all the other places the AVfM MRA’s are coming from???

        She seems to be operating on the false assumption that we’re strictly an American audience, which couldn’t be further from the truth.

        • TPH

          and quite possibly to her surprise!

          • Kimski

            Yeah, power trips will do that to your delusions of grandeure.

    Hopefully Col. Kirk can sue her for Fraud upon the Court, or turn her into the disciplinary council for judges in that state.

    PS: Thanks for your great work, Dr. Tara.

      I hope so, too, echofoxtrot, and thank you to everyone who has offered their support to the Col and his children and is fighting to remove this judicial blight from the bench.

  • dhanu

    I increasingly have a feeling that the people doing this sort of bad things are not doing so because of their misguided belief in their own goodness and morality. Initially it might have been like that, but I believe that now they have completely turned into the pure evil-doers. Now they know that they’re evil and wrong. But seeing the rewards in conforming to that side, they consciously choose to follow their vicious intents and do their best to harm the good side as much as possible. They no longer believe that they’re doing this for the greater good of the humanity; now they know that their actions are only destructive to everyone, are not normal, and are borderline extremism. And they’ve just chosen to follow this path of evil. I mean, what’s wrong in being on the wrong when you’re being rewarded for being wrong and can have powers to shut all those up who call you wrong?

    I also think they probably a secret place of meeting where they cheer up at their achievements and plan how to incorporate the new evil ideas. Like a hidden underground den of villains in the movies. The villains know that they’re bad people; they’re not following a moral code to prove that the others are wrong. Even the terrorists might have an inner sense of being against some evil power as they might have been indoctrinated. But the villains know that they’re on the wrong. It’s just that once the fear of being wrong has been taken away, they no longer care about being on the wrong, because that fear was the only obstacle between them and their very profitable motives. In the same way, when there is not only no fear presented to the wrong-doers (or the wrongarians in the words of Dr F) but there are actually rewards for them, how can those people have any incentive to act otherwise?

    The only solution looks to be a group of superheroes. AVfM is one. If I were in the multimedia industry, I’d make a series of superhero AVfM movies, a superhero with no superpowers other than truth and persistence. Even comics can do. JK.

    By the way, why would the judge call the col so unexpectedly? I think to try to break his association with AVfM and to teach him (bully him with her abuse of power) a lesson as to what could happen (what she’s capable of) if he continued to join it. Let’s see.

  • Bombay

    This judge will blame Kirk for any and all information presented here, accuse him of child abuse and order him to get it removed or else. She will not care that it is public information and is not under his control. Been there, seen that.

    A complaint to that court’s judicial ethics board may be in order.

    I am not a lawyer but I have represented myself in court and here is what I would almost certainly do: read the following prepared statement for the record:

    “I am here unrepresented by council, under protest because I was not given sufficient notice by the court. I wish to state that I believe my children to be in imminent and ongoing danger from their mother. I will not disobey any lawful orders issued by this court but I will not answer any further questions or discuss any other matters with this court until my legal counsel is present. I wish an immediate adjournment until I can arrange for proper legal counsel to be present.

      Precisely, Dean. That’s exactly what I’d do. Any other action on the part of the “Judge” is unlawful and maybe even potentially indictable (? – I’m not a lawyer).

    • TPH

      What you penned is the only thing Lt. Col, Kirk could do without a lawyer. The entire situation Lt. Col. Kirk faces could be made into a multi-part episode of “The Outer Limits”

    • ChrisD

      What you have penned her Deam is equivelant to doing a “no comment” interview with the police. I have coached protesters on this matter and believe me, it pisses the police off to no end. They will stay calm in the room but outside they will get mad, even punch walls (incident related to me by a defense lawyer).

      Looking at this judges history I imagine she might just be able to keep her cool while in court, but outside the court room she will be pissed, and that my friends could lead to a poorly considered and very public mistake.

      Good luck to this man.

    • http://mrathunderinthehammer.blogspot.com/ Dannyboy

      Very well written Dean.
      I might use the words “under threat and duress” instead of under protest.
      However that might only be applicable under Canadian law.

      The legal middle finger.:)

  • Bombay

    Is Kirk’s lawyer registered with the court to represent him? If not, then he is representing himself.

    • Bombay

      The order states that Kirk is representing himself. If he is not, then the court committed an error and that is the first order of business.

      A person never wants a guardian ad litem. Mostly these people are like any other lawyer, they will drag the case out collecting $$ until there is no more to be had. The only way to beat the “best interests” is to have your own high powered child expert (more high powered than all the others) who will testify in your behalf. The caveat is that the really good ones will be honest and may recommend that you do not get custody if you are not the “right” parent.

  • Mercer Williams

    It is at times like these where I would personally buy as much web space as I can to keep the information about both Jackson’s misconduct and Tina’s continued unchecked abuse, gag order be damned. It’s been my experience that anyone who talks about “the children’s best interest” is full of shit and only seeks to further his/her own goals.

    Ohh yes, if you are reading this, O’ Dishonorable Judge Jackson: the more you try to bully Kirk and censor us, the stronger our resolve gets. No matter what dirty tactics you try to suppress the truth, we will find ways to distribute it. All you are doing is further cementing yourself as a tyrant on a power trip and making it even easier for anyone with a working conscience to sympathize with Lt. Col. Kirk’s case. Enjoy your petty powermongering while it lasts….

    Here’s another one: disqualify a judge by their appearance of partiality. Item 4 is, in my opinion, key here:

    http://www.ballew.com/bob/htm/fotc.htm

  • TPH

    I fully expected this attempt at an injunction and stifling of free speech and transparency in Judge Lori B. Jackon’s fiefdom. This is the beginning of the type of attempted censorship and gagging of free speech we are going to see. This crap cannot go unchallenged.

    As the MRM gains traction and gets results in the courts and government, we can expect a shit storm of censorship in guises formulated to make us look like extremists. If you look through history, every single political and rights based movement has faced the same thing and much worse.

    Nelson Mandela was imprisoned for his belief that black south African’s deserved the same rights and privileges as white south Africans and that the very idea of apartheid was discriminatory at it’s very center.

    Our movement is coming into it’s active phase and by doing so we are inviting those who oppose us to act with whatever means they have at their disposal, legal and illegal tactics.

    The front of the gale is upon us, time to reef our sails and batten down the hatches. We will have a lot more challenges tossed in our laps as we become more visible and more organized.

    For the international folks here on AVFM, set up a mirror and/or copy the articles in their complete format as Paul has suggested. Publish the articles on Lori B. Jackson. The more eyes on the injustice, the harder it becomes to whitewash it and sweep under the carpet.

    I suggest we begin looking at creating archives and mirrors in countries that have very strong laws on free speech.

    Folks, this is just the beginning of the storm.

    P.S. After reading the request for an injunction by Mary Smead, I am now convinced someone got to her and is holding a sword above her head.

  • Kyonko802

    I’ll bug my followers on Twitter to get a few signatures and some spread of this atrocity. I’ll also send it to some people I know.

  • Codebuster

    Another possibility to consider… maybe GAL Attorney Mary Snead is being bribed or blackmailed. Having had hands-on experience with representing myself in legal process, retractions and backflips are things that I’ve had to contend with. Perhaps it might be a good idea to ask what Kirk himself thinks? People seem to be afraid, and with good reason these days, of repurcussions to their own careers if they displease people in high places.

    I’ve had cause to not trust lawyers in the past… I’ve gotten the sense that they’ve been informed by other agendas and if there is a conflict with your case, you’re just collateral damage.

    It seems to me rather speculative to suggest that the dishonourable Judge Jackson can manipulate the GAL’s two-hour driving time this way to force her to lodge an injunction. Can’t you easily appeal these sorts of judgements? I thought that the right to your day in court as well as the right to representation are fairly fundamental, unconditional and unassailable. Unless of course things have gotten so absurdly unlawful and out of hand, but I can’t see that myself. Myself, I’d be wondering about the behind-the-scenes inducements, like threats or rewards, that might be playing out.

    • TPH

      You have to remember that you are in the Star Chamber of the family court. The concept of “In the best interests of the children” has become an excuse to do anything the judge wishes to the father without any responsibility whatsoever. This unchecked power has burned me in the past and it is the most prevalent reason I became an active MRA.

  • MrScruffles

    Has Judge Jackson ever heard of the Streisand effect?

    Well, it’s out there on my twitter sphere, should net a few signatures and some attention. I don’t have very much push, but I can do my best to help.

    Dear Elam

    Could you setup an additional server at a location unaffected by the US law enforcement? If the need be, you can then switch to that server instantly, thereby continuing the struggle against the injustice. Even if all the articles have been copied by the various other sites, the concerted effect and the readership that AVfM commands is unmatched. We can’t let it vanish into oblivion at the whim of a misandric judge, who is probably more concerned about her own true image in the search results in the disguise of the children’s safety.

  • optimusprime

    So this Judge didn’t want to hear what Mary Snead said in her final report about the “best interest of the kids” because it wasn’t beneficial to the mother. Mary Snead got no credibility when she tried to protect the kids. In fact, it sounds as if even getting it on the table took around two or three years . Now when the she makes a motion like this for whatever reason she made it allegedly in “the best interest of the kids” it protects mom so its done in 48 hours!!!????

    • Kyonko802

      Welcome to the realities of family court. Right now, let’s not worry about how pissed off we are. We need to do our best to get this petition and these documents to the public. Show this to trusted friends, spread it on social networking sites.

      We’re activists, after all.

      • optimusprime

        Agreed just had to vent that stuff

  • optimusprime

    Alleging that this injunction effort is somehow protecting the children is simply another way of using the kids as an extortion tool to justify the protection of themselves. Further child abuse. I doubt this stuff that is getting out was a “secret” to the kids from what I can tell they were the front row season ticket holders to the whole damn show. Reading about the ball game in the paper doesn’t have nearly the impact when you were a player in the game.

  • Turbo

    Media restrictions on Family Law cases has never been about protecting the best interests of the children. I has always been about protecting the Family Law Industry itself from scrutiny.

    The Judge will be reading this website now that is for sure, somehow I doubt she will be liking it.

    Well done Dr Tara, Paul and all involved. Thank you for the update.
    Good luck to Col Kirk and the children

  • echofoxtrot

    I just doing a little research just now, Col. Kirk can write BEFORE going to court and WHILE in court, “My rights are being violated. I am formally disqualifying Judge Jackson under Canon 3 of the West Virginia Code of Judicial Conduct, as well as 28 USC Section 455. I recuse Judge Jackson”.

    (Not a *motion* for recusal (which can be denied), but a simple statement – I recuse you.)

    Here is the WV Code of Judicial Conduct:

        • Kyonko802

          We need to find a way within the next two days. We were taking action before, but we need to speed it up now that the judge is going for our throats.

          I know we can do this everybody!

      Echo,
      The word invoking is very powerful in the courts.
      For example;
      “I am invoking my right to recuse you judge jackson under…”

    Gender feminist trained judges have a prejudiced modus operandi that witch-hunts innocent males.

    The funding for those judges’ trainings comes from STOP grants funded by the Violence Against Women Act (VAWA).

    The prejudiced modus operandi of gender feminist trained judges is based on a misandrist, gender feminist theory called “gender based violence,” which religiously believes that innocent males are accountable for false allegations of domestic violence, even/especially when it’s clear it’s a female who’s the abuser/batterer – as shown in “Witch-Hunting Males” at Youtube. http://tinyurl.com/65dpzwu

    The corruption of gender feminist trained judges stinks to high heaven. :-/

    Lets Fuck Their Shit Up, Judge Jackson we are coming for you, better close those curtains dear, you might not like the THUNDER.

    Justice will be served through AVFM not family court, FTSU.

    Jackson.

    If you’re reading this article, here’s my answer to your gag order on behalf of everyone on this site:

    • Zarathos022

      I think I’m going to go see if I can’t sign that petition again.

      Go Fuck Yourself, Jackson. XP

  • Tawil

    Ok, activism time. Firstly, lets get that petition over 1000. Posted it here, should see a few dozed more signatures: http://www.facebook.com/pages/Violence-Against-Boys/116594975080341?v=wall

    Will be collecting the relevant articles and info about this case and posting on a blog in the next few hours. This judge is arrogant to think she can stop tens of thousands of people showing public concern for these kids.

  • http://mrathunderinthehammer.blogspot.com/ Dannyboy

    Already mirrored liked, shared, in my favorites and featured on my yt channel.
    Next stop I might just have to make a phone call to this miscreant judge and ask her why she is willfully placing innocent children into the hands of their abuser.
    There ain’t a snowball’s chance in hell (or for you atheists out there in the local steel mills blast furnace)
    that this gets swept under the rug.
    It has happened far too many times to men all over the world already.
    For every valid reason I can think of to fight this as a MRA and a man, each and everyone of those reasons all fall miles short of why this is important to those children.

    I heard you again LtCol, up here north of the 49′th and I am still broadcasting the story of the heinous injustices inflicted on you and your children by this animal who masquerades as an upstanding member of the judiciary.

    I might even bet that this is a last ditch effort for jackson to keep her job if not, lets make sure the sterilizing light of public scrutiny shines directly in jackson’s face.

    • http://mrathunderinthehammer.blogspot.com/ Dannyboy

      Get them hash tags flowing on twitter folks

  • Codebuster

    I just did a google search of “child abuse” and “legal definition” and “indictment”.

    This child-abusing judge is laying herself open to an indictable charge. There are precedents along these lines, eg:
    http://cameronreilly.com/2011/10/16/catholic-bishop-indicted-for-covering-up-child-abuse/

    If a catholic bishop can be indicted for “covering up” child abuse, what do we make of a judge who forces children into the hands of their abuser?

    The system has an obligation to nail this child-abuser. And if the system lets her get away with it? What do we make of that system and its masquerade with “the best interests of the child”?

    • Turbo

      Hey, Lori B, getting a little uncomfortable, mmmmm?

  • napocapo69

    it reminds me the Assange story…at some extent.

    BTW, it is almost unbelievable the misandrous society we are living in

    • TPH

      I am thinking along the same lines. A lot of men see the Assange situation and say it’s bullshit, but don’t do or say a damn thing because it’s politically incorrect or because they are afraid of stepping out of the nice box society has created for us. Same situation with the Lori B.Jackson injustice, many men see it as an abuse of power, but are too fucking scared to speak up.

    If they are inclined to delete controversial posts, do you suppose they can delete as fast as we can post?

    • http://mrathunderinthehammer.blogspot.com/ Dannyboy

      Done as well Suz and posted on a few other FB pages.

  • Kazzi

    These stories (and yes there are so many more out there) make me feel sick in the stomach. I have signed and if i could sign again I would. These judges need to be shown the REAL WORLD and actually listen to what is being said in court & what the children want rather than literally ‘fuck what everyone has said’ and make things worse.

    Really only one thing to do: up the volume.

    Make it clear through demonstration that escalations like this will only result in further escalation.

  • HurleyHacker

    Suz,

    Kudos . Here is what my protest sign would say.

    “Tomas Ball Self-Immolated himself for less than the What the Dis-Honorable Lori Jackson is doing to Col. Kirk.”
    Arrest Lori Jackson.

    Keep at it wish I was there to put a bite in the ass of the criminals cowards of Anti-Family court.

  • http://shortendedstick.wordpress.com Aaron

    I really hope I don’t come across something like this when I go before a judge. Geeze.

  • Zarathos022

    30 more signatures on that petition left.

    I’d be sweating bullets right now if I were you, Jackson.

    And THANK CTHULU that I’m not.

  • Seriously

    This entire situation is completely ridiculous. “Best interests of the children” seems to be a growing phrase that is used to gain unjust people what they want. What happened to the best interests of the children when Judge Jackson was giving 50/50 custody to this lunatic? It’s funny how in a matter of 4 days, they can pull together a court hearing on something this stupid. Why couldn’t they handle this entire situation in 4 days? Instead, it’s taken them 3 years and counting. I find it hard to believe that these kids will be harmed in any way by reading about their crazy whore of a mother on the internet. They know exactly who and how she is by having to deal with her all of this time. Plus, they are the ones that found the photos of her tramping around with a bunch of black men and a mechanical bull at some bar. This isn’t big news to them.

    If anyone is claiming that these children will be harmed by any of the articles posted on the internet, they are fooling no one. This is a blatant, backyard attempt at saving Miss Physco Fitness and Dishonorable Moron’s reputation. Apparently they believe that they’ve fooled enough people in the area, that they still have a reputation to uphold…. Now, THAT is the problem. These people need to be brought out into the public for whom they actually are! They’ve pulled the wool over too many peoples eyes for far too long.

    I also love how the motion talks about publicizing the children’s statements… I highly doubt that a school teacher in Iowa reading those statements is going to traumatize those kids any more then their statements being given to their crazy old twit of a mother to use against them at her will.
    Its’ a shame that this man has to sit back and watch as his kids grow up, never receiving any kind of justice for what they’ve been put through. Apparently, Borderline Barbie has befriended enough corrupt officials that she can get away with abusing her kids and whoring around on her husband. In fact, the kids and the ex husband will be the ones punished. Great job West Virginia… you disgust me.

  • aVoice4Charlee

    I live in a similar situation…only the parties are reversed. The judge has been in office for the length of my almost 5 year old’s life and way beyond her years. Even when I finally found faith in our system, the rug was once again pulled out from under me…The ruling of trial and error is what continues to happen in our situation…they tell me something serious has to happen to my child…I believe a broken tooth twice and an infected “burn” are grounds for something…However, the GAL did not…nor did the judge…I follow the rules, he doesn’t have to…Maybe this will shed some light on the WV family court system…A voice for men, and possibly a voice for women, but most of all a voice for our children!
