Discrimination against fathers

The Washington Post has published a story about a FEMALE soldier who lost custody. Why didn't they feel compelled to write about the HUNDREDS of FATHERS to whom this also happens. Do journalists know the meaning of the word balance? Why didn't the Post write about as to why this happens to so many fathers in the first place? A gender bias media are rather tiresome.
Uncle Sam wants you and your kids.

Slow road to justice puts trials `at risk'

Stuffed justice.

After reading the article titled “Slow road to justice puts trials at risk (Press Dec 26)’, I find it rather disturbing that our justice system is suffering from a huge backlog of cases, which is causing long delays in the delivery of natural justice.

Some will argue the systematic failure is caused through the over inflated egos of defence lawyers or the adversarial approach to litigation, while others may blame the Ministry of Justice unreasonable trial roster schedules and various appeal law rights.

I would have thought that the obscene salaries paid to senior Ministry of Justice officials, Law Commissioners and judges would have created an effective system that provides a satisfactory service that maintains acceptable standards for the public.

Is kiwi justice having 70% of people that are unfortunate enough to be remanded in custody this Christmas either acquitted or face no further jail time after sentence come 2009?

No matter what, the judge’s gavel or the turkey gobble, you will get stuffed either way.

Slow road to justice puts trials `at risk'


A quarter of Christchurch jury trials are at risk for taking more than a year to reach court.

Figures obtained from the Ministry of Justice show 41 of 150 Christchurch District Court cases awaiting trial have run 12 months or more from the date of charge.

Wellington lawyer and former MP Stephen Franks said the figures were a scandal.

"The system we've got is a disgrace," he said.

If cases take too long they can be abandoned (given a stay) for violating the right to a prompt trial.

In one Christchurch case of an assault with intent to injure on two people in Colombo Street in November 2005, the trial did not begin until July 2007.

At the trial, an issue arose with a juror and a retrial was ordered. Owing to "pressure of business upon the court", the new trial could not be held before February 11 this year two years and three months after the alleged assault.

In ordering a stay, Judge Philip Moran said: "As at August 22, 2007, there were 141 trials outstanding in the Christchurch District Court; 36 of them were `at risk' inasmuch as more than 12 months had elapsed since the date of charge."

Of the 150 cases currently awaiting trial, 34 have at least one person remanded in custody.

Queen's Counsel Nigel Hampton said such numbers were unacceptable in light of statistics that showed about 70 per cent of people remanded in custody were either acquitted or did not receive a jail sentence.

"It's far too long," he said. "We should be looking to a system that has the ability to go from arrest to trial in, ideally, six months."

Christchurch figures are on a par with Wellington's, but 58% of Auckland cases are more than a year old.

Christchurch has addressed the problem of cases involving child-sex complainants.

In August last year, 40 of the outstanding cases were for sexual offences, with 17 of those involving child complainants. Currently, 23 of the cases awaiting trial are for sexual offences, but none is for a child complainant, the ministry says.

Franks said the system was "groaning under the weight of detail" presented in cases.

"The trouble is the legal profession the insane pride with the care they prepare things," he said.

Franks said the system was "bedevilled by appeals against sentence", which could be fixed by penalising "fanciful" appeals.

Queen calls for service to others

Queen calls for service to others

The Queen has urged people to learn from unsung heroes when times are tough.

Delivering her Christmas message yesterday, the 82-year-old sovereign said that Christmas this year was a sombre occasion for many.

"Some of those things which could once have been taken for granted suddenly seem less certain and, naturally, give rise to feelings of insecurity," she said.

"People are touched by events which have their roots far across the world. Whether it is the global economy or violence in a distant land, the effects can be felt at home."

The Queen paid tribute to the armed forces serving in Iraq and Afghanistan and she acknowledged that the worry for their loved ones would not stop until they returned.

She also praised those who acted in the service of others in civilian life and encouraged people to follow their example.

The Queen spoke of her pride in watching eldest son Charles support causes for young people and others through his charities and in seeing Charles' sons, William and Harry, follow in his footsteps.

"We can surely be grateful that, two thousand years after the birth of Jesus, so many of us are able to draw inspiration from his life and message, and to find in him a source of strength and courage," she said.

"Why Women Lie About Rape" study

http://www.misandryreview.com/?p=3443

The National Organization for Women , radical feminists, and Women’s Studies departments, often deny that women make false accusations about rape by asking the naïve, simplistic, and self-serving question: “Why would a woman lie?”



It turns out that there are plenty of reasons women lie about rape, either deliberately or out of desperation.



A U.S. Air Force study, “The False Rape Allegation in the Military Community (1983) investigated 556 cases of alleged rape, and found a 60% rate of false accusations. As part of the study, women who were found to have made false accusations were asked “WHY?”



Motivations given by the women who acknowledged they had made false accusations:



REASON PERCENT


revenge 20

To compensate for feelings of guilt or shame 20

Thought she might be pregnant 13

To conceal an affair 12

To test husbands’ love 9

Mental/emotional disorder 9

To avoid personal responsibility 4

Failure to pay, or extortion 4

Thought she might have caught VD 3

Other 6



TOTAL 100%



The study found that most false accusations are “instrumental” – they served a purpose. If the purpose isn’t avoiding guilt, or getting revenge, it might serve a more focused purpose, for example, telling her parents; “I didn’t just go out and get pregnant, I was raped.” Or, telling her husband, “I didn’t have an affair, it wasn’t my fault, I was raped.”



An unrelated Washington Post article, “Unfounded Rape Reports Baffle Investigators” (6/27/1992) also found a wide range of motivations to falsely accuse men of rape. Anger toward boyfriends was common. One woman had her boyfriend spend 13 months in jail before she acknowledged that she had lied. One woman accused her newspaper delivery man of raping her at gunpoint because she needed an excuse to be late to work.



Neither woman was prosecuted or even reprimanded for lying to the police and attempting to have a man frivolously imprisoned. In a recent US case, police say a young woman who admitted to falsifying two rape reports only wanted a day off from work.



All rape accusations need to be considered seriously, as, no doubt, rape does occur. But a balance needs to be maintained between the claims of the accuser against the all-too-often legitimate denial of the accused.



Women who are found to have made a false sexual assault complaint should receive the same jail sentence as the male victim would have received if he had been convicted. That will put the brakes on fake rape charges.

Courts mixed on exes suing for tainting kids

In New Zealand unscrupulous court appointed children's lawyers like Chris Robertson and Adrienne Edwards actively encourage PAS, while sinister Court appointed psychologists like the criminal John Watson and Michael Davidson persecute the paternal family with unabated glee. It's so sick and destructive and the imbecile Judge Boshier wonders why the male suicide rate for forced clients of his caring civil court is a concern!

Courts mixed on exes suing for tainting kids
Saturday, December 20, 2008
By MARGARET McHUGH
THE STAR-LEDGER
Should parents be allowed to sue their ex-spouses for turning their children against them?

A judge in Morris County said no in a case he decided in August. But last month, a Hudson County judge ruled the opposite way, that state law does not bar a parent from making a parental alienation claim in civil court.
The two cases are now headed to an appeals court, which will decide an issue that's being closely monitored by family law attorneys who are split over the issue. "What do you do when a child is being programmed to hate the other parent?"
Woodbridge attorney John Paone Jr. asked. "I believe you can't get justice in these alienation cases in the family court."
Attorney Cary Cheifetz, treasurer of the New Jersey chapter of the American Academy of Matrimonial Lawyers, disagrees.
Such lawsuits "would cause more damage than good to society, families and children," he said. "The proper remedy is to fix the issue and undo the alienation by restoring the relationship. "
In the Morris County case, Superior Court Judge David Rand dismissed a complaint by retired multimillionaire developer Moses Segal against his former Canadian common-law wife, saying "New Jersey law simply does not allow recovery for the causes of action Segal asserts."
Rand cited the 1935 Heart Balm Act that abolished alienation of affection as grounds for a lawsuit.
Ruling in another case, Superior Court Judge Maurice Gallipoli, sitting in Jersey City, disagreed. Gallipoli found the alienation claim barred by the Heart Balm Act pertained only to the marital relationship, not the children, and that a parent's claim of emotional distress resulting from being alienated from his children can be pursued in civil court.
"The Heart Balm Act doesn't prohibit what we're trying to do here," said Attorney Steven Resnick, who represents both Segal and Hoboken resident Vincent Smith, the father in the Gallipoli decision. "We want a jury to decide this."
In the Hudson County case, Vincent Smith sued his ex-wife, Rose Marie Smith, and her parents, accusing them of lying to his two daughters and making allegations of sexual misconduct and molestation.
Gallipoli allowed Smith's lawsuit against his in-laws to proceed, but dismissed the case against the ex-wife, saying Smith would first have to take his fight against her to Family Court. But the Family Court judge could allow Smith to seek monetary damages for his emotional distress claim in civil court, Gallipoli ruled.
Resnick is using Gallipoli's ruling to resurrect another parental alienation case in Essex County. Based on Rand's ruling, an Essex County judge dismissed Michael Besen's complaint that alleged his estranged wife, Sandra, caused him emotional distress by badmouthing him to the children.
"It's about time this nonsense comes to an end," Resnick said.

Andrew THOMPSON Missing Child - Global Search - More Information

Hi to you all,



Thank you for your help previously, but can I now ask you to distribute some more material about Andrew through your respective email networks?

I know that people are often suspicious about email campaigns so I've included as much independent information as possible in this update to show this is a genuine appeal.

The following link will take people to an article published in the Daily Telegraph on 13th December 2008. A video interview is also contained within the article.



http://www.news.com.au/dailytelegraph/story/0,22049,24791815-5006009,00.html



The next link will take them to an Australian missing persons website.

It contains more information and photos of Andrew and Melinda.



http://www.australianmissingpersonsregister.com/AndrewThompson.htm



This next link has been placed on a website called BEBO by a UK group that is organising a campaign in the UK and Europe. Another group in Canada is organising something similar for Canada and the US.



http://www.bebo.com/Profile.jsp?MemberId=8302791804



I've also attached a copy of a media release dated 14th December 2008 and a copy of the Publication Order issued by the Family Court of Australia on 5th December 2008.



You'll see the Court requires that any information published about Andrew or Melinda must carry a warning that Melinda is not to be approached and that local Police or Interpol should be notified immediately.



I am asking that any or all of this material be distributed as widely as possible via email and that the people who receive it from you forward it to as many people as possible, etc - particularly overseas.



Melinda is very well travelled and knows her way around. She and Andrew could be anywhere, including the UK, Europe, the US, and Canada.



I am expecting some more material to arrive shortly. This material will be written in several European languages and I will forward this to you as well.



This is part of a global media/multi-media campaign that is designed to find Andrew safe and well and have him returned to his family, friends,and home as quickly as possible.



I am very grateful for your on-going and active involvement (and so is Andrew).



Thankyou.

More evidence of the gender bias judiciary in NZ

I am lost for words. Does the New Zealand judiciary value human life? Only when the culpable party is male. If a man did this he would serve at least 10 years in prison.

Mother sentenced after toddler chokes to death
Thursday, 18 December 2008


In Dunedin High Court today,
Mother sentenced after toddler chokes to death


A Dunedin mother of five who killed her 22-month-old daughter earlier this year escaped a custodial sentence today.

The 27-year-old, who has permanent name suppression, admitted infanticide after an initial charge of murder was dropped.

She hit and smothered the girl for crying incessantly, leading to her choking to death on regurgitated food.

In Dunedin High Court today, Justice Graham Panckhurst said the woman could not be held fully responsible as she was severely depressed at the time of the attack.

He sentenced her to two years' intensive supervision and 100 hours of community work.

He sentenced her to two years' intensive supervision and 100 hours of community work.

Evidence of a gender bias judicial system in NZ

If a man did this he would serve at least five years in jail. No questions just hard core jail.New Zealand is a country suffering from the radical feminism fallout. Unlawful gender discrimination is saturated throughout government systems that claim to act in the child's best interests.

CHRISTMAS DAY ALL IS SECURE

CHRISTMAS DAY ALL IS SECURE


TWAS THE NIGHT BEFORE CHRISTMAS
HE LIVED ALL ALONE
IN A ONE BEDROOM HOUSE MADE OF PLASTER AND STONE
I HAD COME DOWN THE CHIMNEY WITH PRESENTS TO GIVE
AND TO SEE JUST WHO IN THIS HOME DID LIVE

I LOOKED ALL ABOUT A STRANGE SIGHT I DID SEE
NO TINSEL NO PRESENTS NOT EVEN A TREE
NO STOCKING BY THE MANTLE JUST BOOTS FILLED WITH SAND
ON THE WALL HUNG PICTURES OF FAR DISTANT LANDS
WITH MEDALS AND BADGES AWARDS OF ALL KINDS
A SOBER THOUGHT CAME THROUGH MY MIND

FOR THIS HOUSE WAS DIFFERENT IT WAS DARK AND DREARY
I FOUND THE HOME OF A SOLDIER ONCE I COULD SEE CLEARLY
THE SOLDIER LAY SLEEPING SILENT ALONE
CURLED UP ON THE FLOOR IN THIS ONE BEDROOM HOME

THE FACE WAS SO GENTLE THE ROOM IN SUCH DISORDER
NOT HOW I PICTURED A LONE BRITISH SOLDIER
WAS THIS THE HERO OF WHOM I'D JUST READ
CURLED UP ON A PONCHO THE FLOOR FOR A BED

I REALISED THE FAMILIES THAT I SAW THIS NIGHT
OWED THEIR LIVES TO THESE SOLDIERS WHO WERE WILLING TO FIGHT
SOON ROUND THE WORLD THE CHILDREN WOULD PLAY
AND GROWNUPS WOULD CELEBRATE A BRIGHT CHRISTMAS DAY

THEY ALL ENJOY FREEDOM EACH MONTH OF THE YEAR
BECAUSE OF THE SOLDIERS LIKE THE ONE LYING HERE
I COULDN'T HELP WONDER HOW MANY ALONE
ON A COLD CHRISTMAS EVE IN A LAND FAR FROM HOME

THE VERY THOUGH BROUGHT A TEAR TO MY EYE
I DROPPED TO MY KNEES AND STARTED TO CRY
THE SOLDIER AWAKENED AND I HEARD A ROUGH VOICE
'SANTA DON'T CRY THIS LIFE IS MY CHOICE
I FIGHT FOR FREEDOM I DON'T ASK FOR MORE
MY LIFE IS MY GOD, MY COUNTRY. MY CORPS'

THE SOLDIER ROLLED OVER AND DRIFTED TO SLEEP
I COULDN'T CONTROL IT I CONTINUED TO WEEP

I KEPT WATCH FOR HOURS SO SILENT AND STILL
AND WE BOTH SAT AND SHIVERED FROM THE COLD NIGHTS CHILL
I DIDN'T WANT TO LEAVE ON THAT COLD DARK NIGHT
THIS GUARDIAN OF HONOUR SO WILLING TO FIGHT

THEN THE SOLDIER ROLLED OVER WITH A VOICE SOFT AND PURE
WHISPERED 'CARRY ON SANTA ITS CHRISTMAS DAY ALL IS SECURE'
ONE LOOK AT MY WATCH AND I KNEW HE WAS RIGHT
'MERRY CHRISTMAS MY FRIEND AND TO ALL A GOOD NIGHT'


THIS POEM WAS WRITTEN BY A PEACE KEEPING SOLDIER STATIONED OVERSEAS
THE FOLLOWING IS HIS REQUEST I THINK IT IS REASONABLE.

PLEASE WOULD YOU DO ME THE KIND FAVOUR OF SENDING THIS TO AS MANY PEOPLE AS
YOU CAN

CHRISTMAS WILL BE COMING SOON AND SOME CREDIT IS DUE TO OUR BRITISH SERVICE
MEN AND WOMEN FOR OUR BEING ABLE TO CELEBRATE THESE FESTIVITIES.
LETS TRY IN THIS SMALL WAY TO PAY A TINY BIT BACK OF WHAT WE OWE!

Syracuse father loses fight

Syracuse father loses fight / Court ruling in four-year-old adoption
case urges Legislature to clarify law
Saturday, December 13, 2008
By JESSE FRUHWIRTH
Standard-Examiner Davis Bureau
(5 comments)

SYRACUSE -- A father's quest to reunite with his son has apparently come to an end -- the Utah Court of Appeals has ruled against the man whose son was placed for adoption against his wishes four years ago.

One judge noted, however, that the law cited to terminate Nikolas Thurnwald's paternity rights is vague, illusory, highly problematic and invites fabrication.

He urged the Legislature to clarify the law.

"... (S)evering an unmarried biological father's parental rights based on such technicalities serves to reinforce traditional notions about gender and childrearing -- i.e., that women are biologically better suited for raising children," Judge James Z. Davis wrote in his concurring opinion released Thursday.

"(Those) notions are antiquated and harmful to both men and women."

The technicality to which Davis referred is a state law that requires an unmarried biological father who wishes to parent his child to file within at least one business day of the child's birth a sworn affidavit that "set(s) forth his plans for care of the child."

The law states an unmarried father must strictly comply with that requirement, meaning almost good enough is not good enough.

There is no legal definition of what a "plan for care" is, and even though Thurnwald had an attorney write a multipage affidavit, the court ruled that the affidavit did not contain a plan.

Thurnwald is planning to end his quest for his son, for now.

"I've done everything in my power, under the sun, that anybody can do as far as fighting this out, fighting to be his father and raising my child," he said.

"Whatever happened was completely out of my control, and I did everything -- everything -- I could. This is a sad situation. I'm going to wait for the day he's in my arms, united with me -- hopefully sooner rather than later."

Thurnwald plans to place his name on Utah's Mutual-Consent Voluntary Adoption Registry, which one day might help his son contact him.

In the absence of specific details written by legislators, the two other appeals judges who heard the case, Russell W. Bench and Carolyn B. McHugh, wrote that a father must state in his sworn affidavit at least "that he has a source of income and identify who will care forthe child while he is working to earn that income."

There is no requirement under Utah law that an unmarried mother detail a plan to care for her child or risk losing custody.

Thurnwald's attorney, Dan Drage, said Utah adoption law seems to assume all unmarried fathers want the child placed for adoption to avoid the heavy burden of child support payments.

He said when the occasional responsible and interested unmarried father comes along, his rights are often trounced.

"You've got more of a protectable interest when someone wants to repossess a vehicle or collect on a debt. They have to give you notice and give you a hearing, and all you're talking about is a television or an automobile," he said.

"But we're talking about a child here."

Drage said the court acknowledged that it was obvious Thurnwald expressed his desire to be a father at the time of his son's birth.

"He filed (an affidavit), he has fought hard, and there's no doubt what his intention all along was: 'I want to be the dad,' " Drage said.

"Now the court is saying, 'We know what your intention was, but you
didn't put it on paper.' We have a piece of paper, but it doesn't say
the magic words, and so his true intention is overlooked."

Utah Sen. Greg Bell, R-Fruit Heights, an attorney, recalled
Thurnwald's victory before the Utah Supreme Court in 2007.

In that battle, Thurnwald convinced the state's highest court that the Constitution requires that his paternity affidavit be accepted even though he missed the statutory 24-hour post-birth deadline.

Thurnwald's child was placed for adoption on a Sunday before Labor Day, so the earliest he could file his affidavit with the court was Tuesday.

The Utah Supreme Court changed the law from a 24-hour post-birth deadline to a one-business-day deadline on equal protection grounds.

"We really want to balance the legitimate interests of the father, the mother and the adoptive parents -- and the child," Bell said. "And we don't want legitimate interests defeated by a technicality."

At the center of the case is a child who has spent more than four years with an adoptive family and knows no other parents. The court calls him Baby Boy Doe.

Had the court decided in Thurnwald's favor, an analysis of the best interests of the child may have been performed for the first time in the case.

Adam Pertman, of the Evan B. Donaldson Adoption Institute, said that's too late to consider what's best for children.

He said he's unfamiliar with the Thurnwald case, so he could not comment on the merits of the complaint, but said men are often treated unfairly in adoption law.

"These laws can cause as many problems as they resolve," he said. "These laws are not well-understood and they are not well-publicized,but then men are expected to have followed them really well."

Pertman also said a case such as Thurnwald's should be expedited so
that it doesn't take four years to decide.

Davis acknowledged that not knowing the "magic words," as Drage called them, put Thurnwald in an impossible bind.

"The lead opinion clearly observes that N.T.'s petitions are utterly deficient in 'setting forth his plans for care of the child,' " Davis wrote.

"It is entirely unclear, however, precisely what N.T. could have -- or should have -- done differently that would have yielded a different result in this case."

THE FEMALE SUPREMACISTS

THE FEMALE SUPREMACISTS


Peter van de Voorde 2008

A Supremacist, is a believer in the superiority of a particular group: somebody who holds the view that a particular group is innately superior to others and therefore is entitled to dominate them.

White, black, female, male, whatever their colour or gender, these are extremists, and are a danger to the wellbeing of all of us.

These supremacists can also be found in the various religions, those who believe their religion is the only worthy one and therefore their beliefs should reign supreme over those of all other religions.

We also see them in parent/child relationships. These are the women (and men) who regard themselves the supreme parent and consider that the other parent is not worthy of a relationship with their children. These behaviours are permitted to flourish under the current system, which slavishly grovels to the agenda of the female supremacists.

This system, driven by the agenda of small groups of female supremacists, is the real enemy of the people. Many good women recognize this and speak out on our behalf with the support of most decent men and women around the world.

Many of these women have sons who are being destroyed by this horrendous system, that allows the fracturing of our society, and are appalled by what they see. Like the Men's movement, some speak out but many remain silent. We should encourage and support those who are willing to speak out against the female supremacists amongst us.

Great leaders like Martin Luther King, Mahatma Gandhi and Nelson Mandela, embraced all those who wanted to help further their cause, no matter what colour their skin or what their gender. This eventually led to Gandhi and Mandela becoming leaders of their country and eventually saw a black US President. This would not have been possible without the support of those not sharing their skin colour.

So I think it is imperative we all focus on the real enemy "The System" and those who drive and support it. Like in the black civil rights movement, which saw people with a broad range of views, such as those of Malcolm X and Martin Luther King, there are/and will continue to be, a wide range of views and methods used, before we achieve our common objective. Some are able to work together, others are unable to do so. But we are all playing our part.

Our greatest weakness is to attack each other. So let's not stifle debate, let's look for new ways to overcome our children's dilemma, let's be constructive and not destructive. If a particular method or process has not worked, or does not work anymore, let's move on and devise new ones. If earlier leaders have run out of ideas, let them move over and use their experience to encourage the new generation of parents to find new ways in an ever changing society.

Nothing much has changed in the abuse of our human rights by the International Family Justice System for the last 35 years, so new initiatives and ideas must be found. New ways to challenge and expose the system must be created. If they do not work, at least we prevent those following us repeating the same failed methods. So for the sake of our children, let's become more creative, imaginative and resourceful. Let's make 2009 the year that saw the beginning of the end, for a dreadful system that promotes the abuse of the fundamental human rights of our children to maintain a loving relationship with both of their parents.

What is inspiring about humans is, that just with a change of will, things can be different.

We can change the world, because we have that something special inside us, and it only takes a spark, one small second and we become different.

So let's set about igniting that spark and change community perceptions.

Suicide levels among males still three times female rate

I have no doubts that a direct correlation exists between falsely accused fathers confronted by the overwhelming viciousness from the Family Court and the increase in male suicide rates. Many bewildered fathers are forced clients of the unlawful gender discrimination that runs amuck in the out of control feminist Court. Surely Judge Boshier must be concerned at the numbers? Does he care? What a shame that good fathers are destroyed by a hateful gender bias Court of hell. How many funerals will I attend next year? So sad watching the children when dad is gone. They don't understand about the orchestrated evil of the slimy/sinister system that helped kill dad!

Suicide levels among males still three times female rate
The Press | Saturday, 13 December 2008


New Zealand's suicide death rate is well down on its 1998 peak but has not dropped any further since 2005, statistics show.

In 2006, the latest year for which figures are available, 524 people died by suicide of which 386 were male.

The male suicide rate continued to be almost three times the rate of the female rate, or almost four times the rate among those aged 15-24 years, the Ministry of Health said.

Those with particularly high rates were aged 15-29 years, along with Maori and those living in the most deprived parts of the country.

In the 10 years between 1996 and 2006, the suicide rate for men aged 20-29 years dropped by 40 per cent, with a 31% decrease reported in suicide among youth aged 15-24.

The rate of 12.2 suicide deaths per 100,000 population was a 19% decrease on the rate in 1998.

The rate of self-harm hospitalisation has also declined by 19% since 1996.

"It's pleasing to see the numbers trending downwards across several categories, especially in the traditionally high-risk group of males aged 20-29," said Janice Wilson, Health Ministry deputy director-general population health.

"However, it's obvious there's plenty more to do, with suicide rates for Maori, youth and those from more deprived areas still far too high."

In March, the government announced the release of the New Zealand Suicide Action Plan 2008-2012.

The Suicide Action Plan outlined a detailed programme of action to reduce the rates of suicide and suicide attempt in New Zealand.

Depression was the single biggest risk factor for suicide, and many men remained undiagnosed, according to Suicide Prevention Information New Zealand (Spinz), a service of the Mental Health Foundation.

"Reaching people, especially men, with information encouraging them to seek help is essential, as well as ensuring that mental health services are truly responsive," said Spinz director Merryn Statham.NZPA

A slander on Canadian men

Falsely accused men are routinely driven from their homes, torn from their children's lives, languish in jail and a frighteningly high number are even harassed to suicide.


The above sentence is spot on and a tragic reality of some many of us falsely accused fathers. RIP fallen dads, done over by a sinister gender bias system!

A slander on Canadian men
By Barbara Kay, National Post


What kind of leader will Michael Ignatieff be? It's a question that popped into my head when he cranked out a communique last week about domestic violence. It was the sort of pro forma statement most of the media ignored. But I didn't.

Last week, I used the occasion of the 19th anniversary of the Ecole Polytechnique massacre to challenge the feminist movement's anti-male orthodoxies and bogus "statistics, " which have swollen the government-funded coffers of women's projects at the expense of truth and men's rights. Normally I'd wait a while before tackling the subject again. But when a possible future prime minister of Canada puts his name to scare-mongering nonsense, for no other discernible reason than to curry favour with one identity group at another's expense, I feel compelled to write a follow-up.

Marking the 19th annual commemoration of the Ecole Polytechnique massacre, Mr. Ignatieff issued a statement commiserating with the 14 female victims' families. Well and good.

Not well and good was the lily-gilding statement, "Even today, nearly one in three Canadian women are victims of spousal abuse."

This oft-cited figure is a myth, fabricated from whole ideological cloth. If true, the epidemic social pathology it represents would render Canada as dysfunctional as Darfur.

Millions of Canadian women would be roaming the streets with broken bones.

Here are the facts Mr. Ignatieff's staff could not be bothered to research: The five-year incidence of spousal assault victimization reported by women in a recent StatsCan survey was 8% for women, 7% for men. It is not reported whether, as is likely, many of the victims were also perpetrators, since half of intimate partner violence (IPV) is reciprocal. For severe violence, the annual reported figures are 2.6% for men and 4.2% for women.

Unilateral spousal "battering" is fairly rare. In a U. S. national survey of men and women touched by IPV, only 6% of married women cited unprovoked abuse by their husbands against 10% of men reporting the same by their wives.

Why, on the subject of IPV, do our political and cultural elites so stubbornly cling to obvious absurdities in the face of this transparent, authoritative and readily available information to the contrary?

The persistent stereotyping of IPV as a male pathology would seem to be a form of mass hysteria - not personal emotional breakdown, but rather hysteria in its viral sense of mass popular self-deception. How is the hysteria spread? By false statements such as those in Mr. Ignatieff's press release.

The misandric myths perpetrated by the "white ribbon" industry have terrible consequences. Falsely accused men are routinely driven from their homes, torn from their children's lives, languish in jail and a frighteningly high number are even harassed to suicide. That is because our legal system panders to the mass hysteria that Mr. Ignatieff, in thrall, like so many other pusillanimous politicians, to a handful of virulently anti-male ideologues, has indicated he will be complicit in promoting.

When leaders can't remedy social ills, or even apply themselves to understanding their actual causes - and IPV is indeed a social ill in need of realistic treatment, not scapegoating - they should at least refrain from adding to the problem..

There are important words Mr. Ignatieff needs to say to the literally millions of blameless fellow men his ignorance and bias have slandered: "I was wrong. I'm sorry." If he doesn't have the courage to do so, I would hope that Canadian men and fair-minded Canadian women will remember his cowardly silence, as I will, when next they go to the polls.

Ex-wife hides two girls in closet -deputies return children to father

Ex-wife hides two girls in closet
Deputies return children to father

Sheriff's deputies arrested a Valencia mom for investigation of child concealment, child endangerment and interfering with a law-enforcement investigation after they searched her home and found what they called poor living conditions, an official said Monday.

Carol Hershey, ex-wife of former Santa Clarita City Council candidate and sheriff's Lt. Mark Hershey, was taken into custody Sunday evening after she failed to comply with a court-ordered visitation by her ex-husband, said Lt. Tom Bryski. The couple's daughters, ages 12 and 13, were found hiding in a closet, Bryski said.

Mark Hershey is a lieutenant at the Santa Clarita Valley Sheriff's Station.

"This is a serious case of parental alienation," Mark Hershey said.

Deputies asked for access to Carol Hershey's home on Sunday, but she refused, Bryski said. She also refused to tell the deputies the whereabouts of the two girls and falsely identified herself as Kathy, Carol Hershey's sister, he said.

Deputies found the girls in a closet after a two-hour search of Carol Hershey's home in the 23000 block of Summerglen Place in Valencia, Bryski said.

Deputies described the living conditions at Carol Hershey's home as poor, Bryski said. Four of the five bedrooms in the home were rented out to a total of at least eight people, he said. Carol Hershey and her daughters lived in the master bedroom, which was buried in dirty clothes and piles of miscellaneous items, Bryski said.

Deputies returned the children to Mark Hershey.

Mark and Carol Hershey's child custody problems date back at least two years.

"She hates me," Mark Hershey said.

During Mark Hershey's 2006 unsuccessful bid for the Santa Clarita City Council, Carol Hershey obtained a restraining order against him, accusing him of sexual abuse. She accused Mark Hershey of making unwanted sexual advances, exposing himself to her, attempting to coerce her into sexually gratifying him and on one occasion forcing her to perform oral sex on him.

"It's all lies," Hershey said after the accusations were levied. "I haven't done any crimes."

The two have been separated since October 2002, with their divorce finalized in October 2003.

The restraining order prohibited Mark Hershey from coming within 100 yards of Carol Hershey, or attempting to contact her except for "brief and peaceful" contact related to visitation of their two daughters.

The restraining order was entered into a national database, and also required Hershey to surrender his firearms and any ammunition to his superiors.

Attached to the restraining order is a June 22 report filed with the Los Angeles Police Department, in which Carol Hershey told a detective that in addition to the Oct. 24 incident, Mark Hershey allegedly exposed himself to her on June 19 in the parking lot of the Superior Courthouse in downtown Los Angeles after a heated custody dispute.

"Those claims didn't go anywhere," Mark Hershey said.

A Los Angeles Family Court judge threw out the original restraining order and replaced it with a modified restraining order in August 2006, which allowed Mark Hershey to reclaim his weapons so his job would not be jeopardized.

Additionally, the revised order maintains Hershey's joint custody of his daughters with visitation rights.

The long ordeal is wearing on Hershey and his two daughters.

"I have two little kids that are hurt pretty bad and this is going on for two years," he said.

Families Commission Dictates To Associations

http://www.voxy.co.nz/national/families-commission-dictates-associations/5/6455


Families Commission Dictates To Associations

(10 December 2008)

10 DECEMBER 2008 - Planned to coincide with a public protest on Thursday, December 11 2008, the protest organiser, Benjamin Easton, of a father's coalition had joined with other associates in delegation to meet with the new Families Commissioner Jan Pryor. In the order of negotiating the content of that meeting the Commission had determined that they would refuse to hear any discussions in relation to the plight of fathers in the Family Court.

Mr Easton and other Wellington coalition minded fathers have requested to meet with the Principal Family Court Judge, Judge Boshier, after his public refusal to meet with the group in 2007. The fathers are clearly frustrated that after a year long maintained plea to meet with the top judge the request continues to fall on deaf ears. "The problem" says Mr Easton "is that the matters we want to bring to the judge's attention have not been responded to in any other public or political forum. It is easy to say that the public have a right to the freedom of speech but when no-one in the working bureaucracy gives time to that speech the entrenched right has little value.

Besides appealing for the Commission to broker a meeting with the principal judge the issues to be raised by the delegation of four fathers included gender equality versus gender equity and recognition of Parent Alienation Syndrome (PAS). Mr Easton was on the proposed agenda to talk about legal and administrative neglects regarding PAS, a conflict against a parent, involving a child. Yet, just 48 hours before the protest and from there on the confirmed meeting, the father's organiser for the meeting received a phone call from the Commission's Executive Officer Paul Curry. "Mr Curry advised me" says Mr Jackson, "that if there were any protests held on the day of the meeting then the meeting would be cancelled".

In direct response to this extraordinary stance Mr Easton has withdrawn from the meeting. "The Commission, here, are deeper abrogating their responsibilities to the New Zealand Human Rights Act 1990" he says. "They are excluding the right of association with a protest or the protestors. PAS is about an inflamed breach against an association between child and parent, so it is enormously ironic and significant that the countries Families Commission is poisoning my given right as a father to directly protest against a rampant nanny state. It is also directly inconsistent with their statutory obligation".

Mr Jackson and the two remaining fathers of the delegation have no intention of not attending the meeting after the Commission's refusal relative to protests on the same day. "If the Commission intend to pursue a matter as totalitarian, over the New Zealand Bill of Rights Act, "says the Wellington New Zealand Republican Party candidate Justin Harnish, also in the delegation, "then they open our new government to the intolerance of their fellow countrymen and women. If our associate Mr Easton wishes to protest" continues Mr Harnish, "then that is his time honoured and democratic right and that must not, for any price be interfered with. It is unfortunate that Mr Easton decided to withdraw from the meeting".

D. P. Gumby - My Brain Hurts!

A Doctor's Wisdom

A DOCTOR'S WISDOM

A worried woman went to her gynecologist and said:

‘Doctor, I have a serious problem and desperately need your help! My baby is not even 1 yr. old and I'm pregnant again. I don't want kids so close together.'

So the doctor said: 'Ok, and what do you want me to do?'

She said: 'I want you to end my pregnancy, and I'm counting on your help with this.'

The doctor thought for a little, and after some silence he said to the lady: 'I think I have a better solution for your problem.

It's less dangerous for you too.'

She smiled, thinking that the doctor was going to accept her request.

Then he continued: 'You see, in order for you not to have to take care of 2 babies at the same time, let's kill the one in your arms. This way, you could rest some before the other one is born. If we're going to kill one of them, it doesn't matter which one it is.
There would be no risk for your body if you chose the one in your arms.

The lady was horrified and said: 'No doctor! How terrible! It's a crime to kill a child!

'I agree', the doctor replied. 'But you seemed to be ok with it, so I thought maybe that was the best solution.

The doctor smiled, realizing that he had made his point.

He convinced the mom that there is no difference in killing a child that's already been born and one that's still in the womb. The crime is the same!

If you agree, please forward. Together we can help save precious lives! Please support those who cannot speak for themselves! Thank You.

TV Newscast Highlights False DV Allegations

RADAR ALERT:
TV Newscast Highlights False DV Allegations


Around the country, groups are working to stop false allegations of domestic violence. Now the mainstream media are beginning to highlight the devastating impact of such claims.

Recently WCVB-TV, the ABC affiliate in Boston, Mass. ran a newscast highlighting two men whose girlfriends obtained domestic violence restraining orders. The orders had been issued without any evidence of abuse.

When it came time for the final hearing, the women didn't bother to show up and the orders expired. But the men's names were permanently entered into the state Domestic Violence Registry.

As a result, one man had his employment application denied. He commented, "I was guilty from the moment this person walked in and filed that order."

The segment also quotes a representative of the Massachusetts domestic violence coalition who notes restraining orders can be "misused," and admits, "I think it's a problem."

The 4-minute, must-see segment can be viewed here: http://www.thebostonchannel.com/video/18047516/index.html

To RADAR's knowledge, this is the best-ever TV coverage of the problem of false allegations.

TAKE ACTION NOW:

We encourage every person who reads this Alert to view the newscast and forward the URL to your media contacts, elected officials, and others. Emphasize that the nation's domestic violence system has spun out of control, and we need to reform the Violence Against Women Act.

Each year 2-3 million restraining orders are issued, half of which don't involve even an allegation of violence. RADAR has released 10 recommendations designed to curb false allegations of domestic violence: http://www.mediaradar.org/alert20081020.php.

Parents who prevent their estranged spouses from seeing their children will have to carry out community service.

At least the poms recognize the problem for children and non custodial parents!
Breaking Court orders by custodial parents in New Zealand is normal because it fits extremely well with the orchestrated hateful agendas of the Feminist De Family Court.

Parents who prevent their estranged spouses from seeing their children will have to carry out community service.

By Martin Beckford, Social Affairs Correspondent
Last Updated: 11:57PM GMT 05 Dec 2008



Under new laws that come into effect next week, divorced or separated mothers and fathers will be hit with tough punishments for breaking contact orders handed down by family courts.

They can be sentenced to up to 100 hours of unpaid work in the community for breaking the orders, with the penalty doubling to 200 hours and a fine if they fail to abide by the punishment.

In addition, parents can be forced to attend therapy sessions and parenting lessons in the terms of the contact orders.

The new rules come into effect from Monday in provisions of the Children and Adoption Act 2006 that aim to strengthen the power of the authorities to deal with parents who block contact.

They are being welcomed by some legal experts as a way of ensuring that parents who separate are able to keep in touch with their children.

Barbara Reeves, a partner in the family department of leading law firm Mishcon de Reya, said: "Any measures that support parental contact following the separation of a child's parents are to be supported.

"These latest measures allow courts far greater powers to facilitate contact by imposing conditions to contact orders which will compel parents to attend family therapy, parenting classes and the like.

"Also, where one parent frustrates contact, the court now has a practical enforcement power in that it some circumstances the recalcitrant parent can be compelled to take unpaid work.

"It remains to be seen however, just how far the courts will take advantage of these new powers and move us towards the ideal situation whereby children are brought up always knowing both parents and honouring agreements or orders that facilitate contact."

But others claim the new sanctions will criminalise mothers and fathers unnecessarily, and point out that single parents will struggle to find the time to attend courses as well as meeting the costs, which could reach £2,500.

Chris Goulden, of the family law group Resolution, said: "The principles behind these new powers are laudable but they are unlikely to bring about any meaningful improvement unless the new services are up and running, properly funded and readily available for the courts to refer families to.

"At the present moment there is a disturbing lack of clarity as to what activities will be available, where, when and who will pay for them."

Man jailed for not supporting kid who isn't his

Mistaken-identity victim forced to pay $12,000 to someone else's daughter

http://www.msnbc.msn.com/id/28080381

HARRISBURG, Pa. - A Philadelphia man was forced to pay more than $12,000 in child support for another man's daughter and spent two years in jail for falling behind on payments.

Dauphin County prosecutor Edward M. Marsico Jr. told The Patriot-News of Harrisburg that he is examining the case of Walter Andre Sharpe Jr., who has been unable to recover the money even after establishing that he isn't the girl's father.

The investigation has no specific targets, Marsico said.
Sharpe's troubles began in 2001, when he signed for a certified letter addressed to Andre Sharpe, the girl's father. The letter ordered Andre Sharpe to attend a child support conference in Dauphin County, where the girl's mother lived at the time.

Walter Sharpe, who was already supporting four children from a previous marriage, ignored the letter, and a judge ruled he was the father after neither man showed up. The county family welfare agency then began garnishing Walter Sharpe's wages from his job at a trash-hauling company.

He served four six-month jail terms for not keeping up with support payments between 2001 and 2005, then lost his job. Petitions he filed for DNA testing were opposed by the court's domestic relations officials and denied by the judge.

In May 2007, the paternity order against Walter Sharpe was overturned after the girl's mother and grandmother failed to show up to a court hearing. But the judge ruled in October that Walter Sharpe was not entitled to compensation.

Walter Sharpe and his attorney, Tabetha Tanner, claim his identity was stolen in 2002, when he met with agency officials and provided identification showing he was not the father. Instead, his personal information was entered into the agency's computer records, he said.

Officials in the court's domestic relations office would not respond to the newspaper's questions. They said in court papers that they determined Walter Sharpe was the father "after reasonable investigation."

Andre Sharpe has said he has always supported the girl, who is now living with him in Philadelphia and about to graduate from high school.

How many more children are going to suffer

Press release immediate.



How many more of our children are to die or be neglected and abused before the governments recognise the protective early detection role of grandparents? A fortune is spent on all kinds of useless schemes that obviously do not work when we have disasters like Baby P.

Why won’t they recognise the fact that grandparents can save the country millions by being relevant persons in a child’s life.

What have the governments got against grandparents that they refuse them the legal right to know when their grandchildren are being taken into care and refuse them the right to information about their grandchildren’s welfare? Are the administrators of family law doing their best for our children? Obviously not, but they still fill their pockets and children still die. Why do the governments refuse to accept that they are wrong and have messed up the family laws of this country?



We need grandparents to be relevant in a child’s life. Who better knows what is going on behind the closed doors but are not taken seriously.

THESE GROSS HUMAN RIGHTS ABUSES OCCUR DUE TO BADLY FLAWED FAMILY LAWS, WHICH ARE SET UP TO FAIL, AS THEY ENCOURAGE, RATHER THAN RESOLVE CONFLICT, AND ARE TEARING APART THE NATIONS' PARENT/CHILD RELATIONSHIPS.

THE MULTI BILLION DOLLAR DYSFUNCTIONAL FAMILY LAW INDUSTRY, WHICH IS DRIVEN BY IGNORANCE, GREED AND MALICE, IS ALLOWED TO FLOURISH ON YOUR WATCH, BECAUSE YOU TURN A BLIND EYE TO THE CULTURAL GENOCIDE INFLICTED BY THIS INDUSTRY ON THE AUSTRALIAN COMMUNITY.

GRANDIOSE POSTURING ON THE WORLD STAGE, WHILE YOUR OWN PEOPLE BLEED AND OUR COMMUNITIES ARE FORCIBLY TORN APART, IS A HOLLOW SYMBOLISM OF WORLDLINESS.



BY IGNORING THE HUMAN MISERY INFLICTED BY THE STATE ON FELLOW AUSTRALIANS THROUGH THE ACTIONS OF THE FAMILY LAW INDUSTRY, YOUR NAME WILL BE ETCHED IN HISTORY, AS NEGLECTING TO PLACE THE WELL-BEING OF YOUR SUFFERING CONSTITUENTS FIRST.



BY DECIDING TO TURN YOUR BACK, YOUR NAME WILL BE CARVED IN HISTORY NOT FOR THE GOOD YOU HAVE DONE, BUT RATHER FOR WHAT YOU FAILED TO DO.



ANY PERCEIVED HISTORICAL STATUS YOU MAY ENVISAGE OBTAINING BECAUSE OF YOUR STAND ON CLIMATE CHANGE OR HOW YOU DEAL WITH THE FINANCIAL CRISIS, WILL BE OVERSHADOWED BY THE WAY YOU HAVE NEGLECTED HUNDREDS OF THOUSANDS OF THE NATIONS CHILDREN AND THEIR NON CUSTODIAL PARENTS.



HAVE A MERRY CHRISTMAS AND ENJOY YOUR TURKEY MR RUDD.

Domestic violence industry : hateful

"Justice, not man-hating ideology, must prevail in our justice system."

Unless you have fallen victim to this cruel and callous system you will never understand the existence of a deep rooted resentment simmering away waiting patiently for justice. The sicko's from the Family Court gravy train of deceit encourage the children to hate through the insidious Parental Alienation Syndrome in the sinister adversarial litigation world of misery for all but the fat cats.Hey judge leave my kids alone. The hateful agenda is welcomed by a hateful feminist controlled judiciary! I am sickened to be a father of four kiwi born children. The damage inflicted on my family has been fatal. RIP mum and I will get even as I am a great believer in karma and natural justice. The Family Court has shafted the wrong man, believe me I will make the filth pay dearly for their malicious mistake.


Domestic violence industry: hateful

Carey Roberts


Dogged by weeks of protest, the Dallas Area Rapid Transit finally took down the controversial advertisements from its buses this past weekend. Purchased by a local abuse shelter, the ads featured a young schoolgirl who blithely predicted, "One day my husband will kill me."

Journalist Helen Smith denounced the ads as "Very disturbing hate speech against husbands, fathers, and even boys." Advice Goddess Amy Alkon titled her op-ed, "Hating Men — Supposedly for the Greater Good." One distraught mother responded to the Dallas Morning News article by writing, "I took my son aside after seeing it and explained to him how certain women in this society abuse their positions to promote hatred towards men and boys."

From its beginnings three decades ago, the domestic violence industry has been plagued by a cabal of pinkshirts who will do almost anything to advance their agenda.

Erin Pizzey, founder of the first domestic violence shelter in England, let the cat out of the bag when she revealed many of the women in her shelter were as abusive as the men they had left. In retaliation, feminists issued death threats and eventually forced her to flee the country.

In the United States, Dr. Suzanne Steinmetz' research on the Battered Husband Syndrome triggered a whispering campaign designed to torpedo her impending promotion, as well as a bomb threat at her daughter's wedding.

Family violence researcher Murray Straus at the University of New Hampshire has been similarly slandered, harassed, and threatened by radicals who all claim to be against violence.

Eventually the gender partisans got their way, securing passage of the Violence Against Women Act in 1994. Conservative commentator Phyllis Schlafly would later refer to the legislation as the "hate-men law."

Is that description a little over-the-top? Read on, decide for yourself.

Federal domestic violence laws funnel millions in taxpayer money to sponsor public awareness programs such as the Dallas bus ads, as well as training for judges and law enforcement personnel.

Former police officer George Sperry of La Mesa, Calif. described the training he attended as "so dripping with male hatred that everyone in the class felt uncomfortable, male and female officers alike."

But the most virulent anti-male ethos is found at the 1,800 abuse shelters scattered across the country.

A former worker at Bethany House in Falls Church, Va. revealed the facility was "largely used as a free hostel for women with emotional problems if they were willing to hate their husbands enough."

One woman, hired to work for a network of shelters in the St. Louis area, quit in disgust after only a few months because the residents "were subjected to a constant barrage of man-hating lesbian propaganda."

One Seattle-area judge who served as a member of the advisory committee of a shelter admitted, "I was shocked at the anti-male bias of the ladies who ran the shelter. The only solution championed by the shelter was to get free from that big, malicious male."

Joy Taylor, former volunteer at a Washington state shelter, found that "Men were always presented as potential abusers; any goodness one might see in them was only temporary."

Shelter residents also complain of deep-seated anti-male bias.

At Independence House in Hyannis, Mass., Nev Moore disclosed, "Women are ordered to leave their husbands, even in the complete absence of real domestic violence or abuse."

Former shelter resident Nezha Saad revealed, "exposure to domestic violence audio and visual materials in the shelter has negatively affected my children to the point where even they may now feel that men, in general, are abusive." Saad demanded that "Justice, not man-hating ideology, must prevail in our justice system."

But the problem is not just an out-of-control industry that marinates itself in defamatory caricatures of men — the source can be traced to feminist ideology as a whole.

Gloria Steinem once made this breath-taking statement, "The patriarchy requires violence or the subliminal threat of violence in order to maintain itself." And feminist icon Andrea Dworkin spewed this shocking tirade: "Under patriarchy, every woman's son is her betrayer and also the inevitable rapist or exploiter of another woman."

Three years ago the New York Times ran a screed that blamed the problem of domestic violence on "every man and in every class of society." (All the research shows women are as likely to abuse as men — www.csulb.edu/~mfiebert/assault.htm — but goodness gracious, let's not allow the facts to stand in the way of female empowerment!)

Americans pride ourselves as being open-minded and tolerant. So where did the feminist movement get sidetracked?

Professor Murray Straus, a courageous man who refuses to back down in the face of feminist efforts to squelch his research, explains it this way: "History is full of atrocities carried out in the service of a moral agenda."
