UPDATE: Bill Windsor Files Charges Against 37 People/Entities

I heard the fireworks and it is not even the 4th of July! Bill Windsor of Lawless America filed charges against 37 people/entities for stalking, harassment and threats at the Temporary Protective Order Office in Marietta, Georgia today. Windsor will be providing evidence to the police including DVDs, websites, e-mails and videos. The tormentors brought evidence right to Windsor by publicly bragging about their attacks, posting stuff on Windsor’s online sites, and including identifying information in their profiles. Even after Windsor announced his plans to file charges, they keep going!!!

This is a historic event in the victim advocacy movement, abusers are being exposed working in the midst of professional organizations, and hiding behind the victims.

Bill Windsor (2/25/2013) One of the women at the Protective Order Office said, “you’re taking on more dishonest people and crooks at one time than anyone in history,” or words to that effect. With every story i film, I usually develop at least a half dozen new enemies.

Haters, Stalkers and Harassers what you are doing is a crime..and by filing this complaint, you will be publicly exposed! I urge the law enforcement agencies involved to take this complaint seriously, as these people/entities have willfully and with premeditation, devised a global attack on Windsor and the Lawless project with the intent of causing fear, and inflicting damage to Windsor’s reputation and career. Behind Windsor are countless nameless victims too afraid to speak out, too afraid to take a stand against these bullies. The only way these people, and their attacks, will be stopped is to hold them fully accountable under the law. I thank the law enforcement and professional agencies involved for your efforts.

Bill Windsor Feb 25, 2012 NOTHING LIKE A DAY WITH THE POLICE, SHERIFFS, AND COURTHOUSE FOLKS.

“The highlight of my day was walking into the Temporary Protective Order Office in Marietta, Georgia. A woman looked at me from behind her desk and said, “you look familiar.” I looked at her with a puzzled look I would imagine, and then she said, aren’t you Lawless America?” Her officemate, Kylee Elliott, also knew Lawless America. I thought that was pretty cool. I have had people recognize me in the strangest of places.

It’s always frustrating when you have to spend time in those kinds of places. Lots of to-ing and fro-ing. I did manage to file a criminal complaint against 37 people/entities for stalking and related harassment and threats. I now have a case number and know what I need to do where these folks live. The police requested a DVD of my evidence, hate videos, downloads of hate websites, etc., and I will deliver that to them tomorrow.

Hope springs eternal that law enforcement will do something, but one young officer talked about a call he had just been on where someone defecated in someone’s driveway. He seemed more interested in that than the hate video about me with mountains of feces. These guys almost always at least start with an arrogant attitude. I had to call him on it, and he finally took that face off and was a very genuine, likable person underneath.

Now it’s over to the FBI. That’s always SO PRODUCTIVE. :-(”

Kenneth R. Kratz, District Attorney- Predator? – Avoids Criminal Charges

This is an abuse of power of the worst kind..

Kenneth R. Kratz, District Attorney sworn to protect victims, and uphold the law is a sexual predator who stalks and harasses vulnerable women. Even when Kratz’s horrific acts are exposed, he avoids criminal charges, and is given a lenient sentence by the judge who suspends his law license for 4 months. Public outcry did force Kratz to step down as DA.

Date of Charges, Length of Case: 2010-2013

Abuser/Perpetrator Name: Kenneth R. Kratz

Position: Served as Calumet County District Attorney from 1992-2010, planned to run for office again in 2012. Also was the Chairman of the Wisconsin Crime Victims Rights Board (forced to resign after this scandal).

Kenneth R. Kratz, WI

Location: Calumet County, WI

Victim 1: Stephanie van Groll, a Domestic Violence Victim, went to the court to prosecute her boyfriend for trying to strangle her. Kratz was supposed to be prosecuting the abuser but instead began to target the victim by sending 30 sexually explicit and threatening text messages.

After Stephanie filed her first complaint, detailing the abuse, Kratz sent her suggestive text messages. Sent sexually explicit text messages that included asking if she was “the kind of girl that likes secret contact with an older married elected D.A.” and referring to the victim as “tall, young, hot nymph“.

Kratz pressured Stephanie into a sexual relationship, and implied if she did not do what he wanted he would drop her case.
/strong>

Stephanie filed a civil suit against Kratz for sexual harassment and reached an undisclosed settlement in Feb 2013.

Victim 2: Anon woman made complaints after this case hit the media. She stated that she met Kratz online, and during their date he revealed details about a murder investigation and invited her to attend the autopsy. The reports imply that Kratz was turned on by the autopsy, and thought it would be a hot date to bring a woman along.

Victim 3: Maria Ruskiewicz asked for Katz’s help with a drug pardon and was sent sexually explicit text messages, implying their would be a sexual cost for his help.

Victim 4: Anon Woman who needed help with a domestic violence impact statement, Katz texted that he would do it in exchange for sex.

Reports say at least a dozen women came forward with similar complaints, including two social workers

Response: Kratz initially went on “medical leave” due to a “non physical illness” and then went into psychotherapy (probably a publicity stunt!). Kratz is claiming he was addicted to sex, and got hooked onto drugs, and the drugs weakened his will so he could not resist abusing, stalking and harassing vulnerable women. He did go to treatment, which is why he got a lenient sentence from the Wisconsin Office of Lawyer Regulation , who decided Kratz had “suffered enough”. What about the victims? They have suffered horribly, shouldn’t the Wisconsin Office of Lawyer Regulation be more concerned with their well being?!

Kratz apologized in front of the media. Then hired a high powered attorney. Kratz fought stepping down as DA, stating that other people have done worse things.

*Officials with the Department of Justice found no evidence of criminal conduct but forced Kratz to resign as chairman of the Wisconsin Crime Victims Rights Board and report himself to the state Office of Lawyer Regulation, who did an investigation.

*Due to public outcry, Katz was forced to resign as DA

*The WI Justice Dept. investigated but did not file criminal charges, largely because their investigation turned the tables on the victims, and refused to listen, claiming that the victims were mentally ill, on drugs and had past criminal convictions. Other legal technicalities invalidated the claims of the victims.

Is anyone paying attention to the pattern here? Katz obviously targets these women for those very reasons–he was right in assuming that even if guilty of these egregious acts, his reputation is much more powerful than the victims he is sworn to protect.

2012- Judge Robert Kinney’s Lenient Sentence on Katz is despicable: The Wisconsin Office of Lawyer Regulation, which is charged with enforcing attorney ethics, investigated Katz and argued for a 6 month suspension (it could have gone up to 1 year). According to Supreme Court rules, the 6 month suspension would also require a reinstatement hearing. At the hearing, Kratz would be required to show by “clear, satisfactory and convincing evidence” that he “has the moral character to practice law in Wisconsin.” Isn’t this what we citizens deserve to know!

INSTEAD Judge Robert Kinney gave Katz a 4 month suspension of his law license–and this guy is clearly a danger to women, danger to the public and is totally out of control.

AMPP Members Believe Lies over Truth

AMPP Members Admit they don’t know if allegations against Protective Mothers Alliance are “true or not” so they will just believe the lies!

NOTE: A past talk by founder of PMA, Lundy Bancroft, and several comments by co-founder, Janice Levinson, strongly state that PMA does not share confidential information with anyone, and does not charge fees to join. AMPP is intentionally spreading disinformation to scare people away from PMA–what they are doing is no different than the tactics and abuser would use to control, and isolate a victim.

I am so glad I never gave any records to PMA– I have long heard that the information is later used against moms– no idea if this is true or not; but looking at how maria has been treated– not much doubt– I am also a proud supported of AMPP

A follow up comment by “Campus Cougars” shows that this person does not even know who or what PMA is and is choosing to believe the lies AMPP is spreading anyways.

Has the FBI been notified about the judge? Looking at the story and the comments it is appauling that the judge is still on the bench.

WTF is PMA and why would they post that they were new and then fell apart in such a short period of time?

“Campus Cougars” is wrong to think PMA has fallen apart, the organization is still going strong, and has not been deterred from its mission to support abused mothers dealing with injustice in family court.

This next attack gets even worse. Mia Tyler Kailin speculates that PMA is compromising the privacy of its members, and her “proof” is frequent use of the word “IF”. Meaning she is making all this up.

If I had ever shared my court documents with PMA I would be scared to openly comment. If they had all my information I believe they could use it against me if I ever turned on them as they would have the names of all the parties, their attorneys, GAL, and other players.

I may carry the voice of some other mothers who can’t speak for the above reason. There is no alliance in the protective mothers alliance, as illustrated by Janice Levinson’s posts. The first one advertises their org instead of supporting the mother. On a page explaining a woman’s plight, Janice felt it was appropriate to spam for more business. Tacky at best. In regards to the second post. Who cares if Maria is still a part of PMA or not? The mothers whom she helps could care less what orgs she belongs to!

REALLY?!?! If the mothers who Melinn helps “could care less what org she belongs to” why then the need to attack PMA?

Kailin then lies and says PMA is part of the Father’s Rights Movement: “PMA is currently busy with Occupy Family Courts, they have teamed up. Occupy Family Courts has been supported by the fathers rights movement in Canada for a long time. Protective mothers beware, take care so that you too are not revictimized.”

More on this later.. Reading these online verbal attacks from AMPP just shows this group has no regard for the truth, and will just make stuff up rather than look for truth. AMPP cannot discern truth from lies, and seems to prefer telling lies when it suits their agenda…how then can this group ever advocate for abused women and children, where TRUTH MATTERS THE MOST?!?

What does this tell you?

1) American Mothers Political Party (AMPP) is intentionally spreading rumors and disinformation about Protective Mothers Alliance International (PMA). You cannot believe a word they say.

2) The lies AMPP is spreading is scaring some of the mothers who hear it, and keeping abuse victims from getting additional support/resources.

3) AMPP will make false allegations without any proof or evidence. AMPP creates fear, and triggers past memories of abuse and/or trauma to create an emotional reaction, meant to cause abuse victims to flee or go on the defense…. people then are manipulated into joining AMPP and waging a war against its “enemies”.

3) How Maria Bauer Melinn is treated? From what I can see, Melinn was treated with RESPECT!! It is the reaction from AMPP, and it’s members that is abusive and out of line!

I wish to update my above comment. Disclaimer; Maria Mellin is no longer a part of Protective Mothers’ Alliance International as a leader or member. We went our separate ways soon after my above posting. The parting was amicable. Any advocacy actions she may take at this point in time is totally separate from the actions of Protective Mothers’ Alliance International. Thank you.

Melinn parted ways with PMA, and on her resume lists PMA as a reference. Are these the actions of someone who has been wronged? Melinn went on to become president of AMPP. AMPP admits they “hand selected” Melinn because of her experience working with battered women–she garnered some of this experience by working with PMA. These allegations that PMA somehow hurt Melinn is ridiculous–obviously not true.

Check out Melinn’s profile on Linked In, see how she proudly lists her work with PMA:http://www.linkedin.com/pub/maria-melinn/1a/475/649

Maria Melinn’s Experience

Victims Right/Domestic Violence Advocate Nikao Ministries:
January 2005– Present (8 years 2 months)

Administrative Assistant Protective Mothers Alliance International: August 2008– July 2010 (2 years)

Before you judge Janice, read her response to this vicious attack.. through all of this, she still remains a compassionate voice for abused women and their children, and works to raise awareness about the issues of court abuse than engage in a distraction

I am executive director of an organization called Protective Mothers Alliance International. Maria is one of our State Chapter Leaders.
PMA has been in existence for only one year. Lundy Bancroft and I co founded PMA because of the desperate need to bring to light what is happening in family courts.

The point that I wish to make is that Maria’s situation is NOT an isolated occurrence.

PMA at present has approximately 70 state chapter leaders nationwide, and we are quickly growing in numbers everyday. Our leaders are all fit mothers who have their own nightmare story to tell. Sadly, this is an epidemic in this country.

Family court judges have placed gag orders on moms, taken children away from protective moms by ex parte orders when children were CLEARLY not in danger and have taken children away from loving, fit moms while they were kicking and screaming all the way. In some leaders situations, children were handed over to dads who were CONVICTED sex offenders.

The volume of human rights violations and the stories that PMA has heard in just one year, is profound. Double standards are the norm since it seems that dads can violate court orders with no consequences, yet if mom does EXACTLY the same thing , she gets thrown in jail. The time for this nonsense is quickly coming to an end however.

Pma has band together not only protective mothers but the CHILDREN who have aged out of the system and are now ready to speak out about how family court abuse has damaged their lives. When it comes “out of the mouth of babes” and we come together in solidarity by the hundreds( PMA and other advocacy groups) WITH our children all our voices will finally be heard and the light will shine on the truth.

On behalf of our family of advocates at Protective Mothers Alliance I extend my deepest appreciation to Parenting News Network for helping to expose the truth about Maria’s tragic situation.
