Breaking News: Unprotective Mother & Killer Melanie Smith, UK

Is Unprotective Mother and Convicted Killer Melanie Smith (UK) connected to UN Mothers and the American Mothers Political Party (AMPP)??

 

BREAKING NEWS: Bill Windsor, Lawless America, has been suspended from Facebook for posting a picture of an unknown woman, who he suspects is part of the gang of “Joeys” who has been stalking and harassing him. Bill posted this photo to ask for help in identifying this woman, and to give her a chance to either retract her remarks or state she did not participate in the online attacks and defamation.

Abusers Win Custody: Melanie Smith won custody of three children after a divorce. She is accused of abusing, neglecting and torturing her children. Melanie could not handle caring for the children and dumped them in foster care one day after winning custody. The Court reversed its decision, apologized, and gave the father custody. Melanie’s children say that she is “the most evil woman in Britain”.

 

ATW finds it curious that Australian Mothers Political Party is now defunct, and basically has no activity except the lone wolf stalking and online harassment by Claudine and a few members.

The Search for Melanie: On Feb. 19, 2013, Bill Windsor previously posted a photo of Melanie Smith on Facebook, with a similar request for information and his account was not suspended. Bill challenged AMPP to reveal the names of the stalkers, and Melanie Smith did not respond but other AMPP members did when the post appeared on the AMPP Facebook wall.

DO YOU KNOW THIS AUSTRALIAN WOMAN?

I have been provided with information this evening to indicate this is Melanie Smith also known as Mel, the head of the Australian Mothers Political Party and one of the ringleaders of the American Mothers Political Party, working with Claudine Dumbrowski, Loraine Tipton, and Jennifer Herbert.

I believe Melanie lives in Townsville, Queensland, Australia. I need a full street address for the police and a phone number and email, if possible. She may be in a relationship with Mal Hamilton, a tour guide with Tropicana Guided Adventure Company and a member of a band named “The Wee Johnny’s.”

Please email any information to me at nobodies@att.net

I have been too busy with real work for Lawless America to file my Criminal Warrant Applications against these women, but I hope to fill in a few blanks and have them ready to file tomorrow.

Note: There is more than one Melanie associated with AMPP, and two specifically from Australia. ATW believes that Melanie Smith and Melanie Coutts are two different people, but both are associated with AMPP and Australian Mothers Political Party.

Read here the story of Melanie Smith, and demand the truth for yourselves. If the UN Mothers Melanie Smith is not this killer, then we need to hear from her, and also Bill needs his statement.

Mirror, May 5 2013, Simon Wright. ‘Melanie Smith: Kids who Escaped Life of Torture with Killer Brand Their Mum Britain’s Most Evil Woman’: http://www.mirror.co.uk/news/uk-news/melanie-smith-kids-who-escaped-1870434#ixzz2zIwNmxzQ

 

The children of Melanie Smith call her “the most evil woman in Britain”, for how she viciously abused and then abandoned them, and express grief for the victims she burned to death. Ex-husband Paul Smith also recalls Melanie’s abuse and neglect of the children.

 

Paul met Melanie at Pontins near Prestatyn where she was working as a chambermaid. They married in 1987. Melanie gave birth to three children within the next 4 years—Lisa, Charlotte and Jonathon. Paul said Melanie “lacked maternal instinct” and resented being tied down by motherhood, she preferred to drink and party. After the birth of their first child, Paul says he “was excited to be a dad” but Melanie did not want Lisa around her. Melanie also resented her second daughter, according to Paul, “because she was not a boy”. Melanie was excited when her son was born then fell back into drinking, leaving Paul with most of the responsibility to care for the three young children. Paul eventually had to quit his job to care for the children full-time because of Melanie’s instability, and inability to provide for the children. 

 

Lisa, Charlotte and Jonathon have come forward to publicly speak about their mother, revealing how she burned them with cigarettes, poured boiling water over them and locked them in a tiny cupboard. She also chopped off their hair if they “made too much noise”. Ex-husband Paul Smith says that Melanie abused and neglected the children, and showed no maternal instinct, and instead preferred to party and drink. Paul says he saw bruises on the children, that they were not fed and their diapers were not changed while the children were in Melanie’s care.

Paul noticed that Melanie’s heavy drinking resulted in more abuse of the children; when he noticed marks or bruises, Melanie always had an excuse. Paul said sometimes he came home to find the children alone, wet, hungry and crying—Melanie was asleep or passed out. Then Paul discovered Melanie in bed with another man, the children locked in another room so she could have sex, and decided to file for divorce.

Despite the abuse and neglect, after their divorce, Melanie won custody of the children. After being awarded custody, Melanie could not handle caring for the children, and a day later, abandoned the children ages 3, 2, and 9 months into voluntary foster care. The court later reversed its decision, apologized, and awarded Paul sole custody, the children have thrived in his care and fought to forget their mother, though scars still linger.

 

Paul Smith told the UK Mirror, “I picked them up from emergency foster parents. They looked so scared my heart broke. If I hadn’t lived through it, I wouldn’t believe a mother was capable of such cruelty towards her own kids. It’s the same cruelty that has now taken the lives of those poor victims in the fire. She should rot in jail until the day she dies.”

 

Her daughter Charlotte, now 23, told the Sunday Mirror: “We all wish she was dead. Knowing that the evil woman who killed that poor family is our mother is almost impossible to bear. Dad rescued us from hell. He’s brought us all up without her but now she’s back in our lives in the most horrific way imaginable. She’s been dead to us since we were tiny. Now I just want her to rot in hell.”

Melanie never tried to see or contact her children. The next time they would see their mother would be on TV, arrested after killing 5 people in a fire she set.

MELANIE SMITH SETS FIRE, KILLS FAMILY IN A JEALOUS RAGE

Fire Set in Communal Hallway by Melanie Smith who Escaped out a Window and Watched the Flat Burn (Daily Mail)

At the time of the fire, Melanie Smith was unemployed and a heavy drinker. She had been kicked out of several pubs due to her outrageous behavior. Melanie was also reported to be an obsessively neat, so bad that she had to seek therapy. Melanie closely guarded her boyfriend Steven Clarkson with intense jealously that had caused her, in August, to vandalize his car, and attempt to set it on fire. Melanie had made several threats to start fires before the killing.

On October 19, 2012, Melanie was upset that a baby stroller was left in the communal hallway of the flat she shared with upstairs neighbors, Lee-Anna Shiers and her boyfriend,20, Liam Timbrell, 23. Melanie had been drinking heavily that day, and had take out dinner with Steven Clarkson. Melanie’s rage was lit when she heard noise in the apartment above, that suggested Lee-Anna and Liam were making love. It has been suggested that Melanie was jealous of the couple’s happiness because Steven was cheating on her, and their relationship was so troubled. Smith also made false allegations that Lee-Anna was having an affair with Steven, to which there is no substantiation. Melanie then went into the communal hallway and set fire to the stroller, setting off an intense fire that would leave the building looking like a bomb had hit it.

While the flat burned, Melanie crawled back into bed with Steven to make it look like she had been asleep all along. She then escaped out a window with Steven, and stood across the street to watch the family die. Witness said they could screams and cries for help but the fire was too hot and too intense to rescue the family.

The Fire Devastated the Flat, Empty the Baby Swing on the Floor Once Held Charlie (DailyMail)

Lee-Anna and Liam were trapped in the flat, desperately calling 999 for help as the fire consumed the everything around them, then took their lives.

As the fire took hold, Mr Timbrell was heard in the background of a 999 call screaming, “Oh my God, oh my God, we’re going to die.”

Justice Griffith-Williams said at sentencing: “For those who had to hear the evidence of the 999 calls, the horror of those moments in the flat upstairs as Lee-Anna and Liam faced the awful inevitability of their imminent deaths will be forever etched on their memories. Understandably the knowledge of the manner of their deaths has added to the overwhelming grief of their families, all the more to those who rushed to the house in the hope they could help…”

Lee-Anna, Liam and Charlie perished in the fire (Dailymail)

Liam and his 15 months old son, Charlie, were pulled from the fire. Charlie was pronounced dead at the scene. Lee-Anna, her nephew Bailey, 4, and niece, Skye, 2, were found deceased inside a bedroom in the flat, crouching together in the last moments of life. Despite being badly burned, Liam managed to tell police that, before the fire, he had heard Melanie shouting through the mail slot, “I’m going to burn your house down.” Liam later succumbed to his injuries and died at the hospital.

Bailey and Skye perished in fire (Dailymail)

Melanie was arrested on the scene, and has shown no remorse for her actions but tries to portray herself as the victim. During the trial, Melanie refuted the 21 witnesses who spoke against her by saying they were in a conspiracy with a woman who was having a fling with her boyfriend Steven. The jury found Melanie guilty of threatening to start a fire and murder.

The court heard victim impact statement from Jonty Lewis, 29, the mother of Skye and Bailey, who said her heart was ‘torn apart’ by their deaths,When I wake up in the morning, that first minute is beautiful…In those 60 seconds I feel no pain and I’m just listening for the laughter and footsteps running across the landing in the hope that my bedroom door will fly open and they will come bouncing in, jump onto the bed so that I can smother them in kisses. It is then that reality sets in. My heart is wrenched and the heavy empty feeling engulfs me.”

On May 7, 2013 she was convicted then sentenced to life in prison, to serve a minimum of 30 years.

BARRY GOLDSTEIN : Goats, Abusers & Family Court

The “formal Battered Mothers Custody Conference” will NOT be held this year

images

 

Why the BMCC has declined to host a “formal BMCC” has not been disclosed.  As ATW has reported, the Mother’s Movement has encountered numerous problems throughout the year…many “advocates” in the Mother’s Movement who have promised help, and to reform  family court, have proven to be abusers, shameless self promoters, cyberstalkers and otherwise incompetent. And other leading organizations in the Mother’s Movement have supported, promoted and/or enabled these abusive advocates. The unprofessional behavior of many in the Mother’s Movement has hindered progress toward meaningful family court reform and caused fear and intimidation among those they are supposed to help. 

MOLC22

Advocates in the Mother’s Movement who support and enable Claudine Dombrowski (AMPP). Dombrowski has a protective order issued against her for harassment and criminal cyberstalking

Instead of a “formal conference”, the Battered Mothers and Kids Custody Conference (BMCC) will hold a “mini BMCC” at the George Washington University Law School.

 

The Mother’s Movement is rolling out the Astroturf grass to announce Barry “Goatstein, offering a lecture on “domestic violence advocate training”.

 

Remember, in 2009, the State of New York said about Barry, “his conduct exceeded the bounds of propriety as a courtroom advocate,” and then revoked his license to practice law for 5 years. With Barry’s revocation of his law license, and affiliation with a known abuser,  you have to wonder if he has the judgment and experience to be the domestic violence expert he claims to be? And knowing Barry’s questionable past, should he be lecturing at various domestic violence and family law conferences? Should Barry be offering training to advocates? Should Barry be training and educating family court judges about domestic violence and its harmful effects on children? And should Barry be offering advice to desperate protective mothers?

 

The following quotes and screenshots are public statements made by Barry Goldstein… 

 

1) Barry says Goats Are the Best Abuse Advocates because “Of course goats always protect their kids so we can learn from them”.

 

It is insulting that Barry really thinks a goat is more knowledgeable about protecting a child than their own mother, when he claims to be an advocate for mothers and sympathetic to their cause.

 

 

2) According to Barry, Goats Are Now the Symbol “For Our Cause”.

 

3) ARE goats an appropriate symbol for Barry’s cause?? And should abuse advocates, judges and other domestic violence professionals be learning from goats?

 

Goats can be dangerous, and aggressive! ..And have a strange obsession with urine.

 

 

Goats crave the taste of human urine—and will aggressively stalk men to drink their their urine, this has resulted in the death of a hiker who was attacked by wild goats. 

 

Hikers have been warned to maintain a distance from the goats, at least 50 yards away from them – half the length of a football field.

Mountain Goat safety tips: http://www.fs.usda.gov/detail/olympic/home/?cid=stelprdb5412239

 

Harrowing story of a hiker’s close call with a mountain goat, “It was as if the sound of my zipper was a dinner bell. A narrow white face, curious, popped over a ridge 20 feet from my crotch. Then another one. Talk about stage fright, or performance anxiety. They approached confidently. They both stared at me, and I stared back at them, confused and anxious…”: http://semi-rad.com/2012/01/beware-the-urine-drinking-goats

 

Goats also spray themselves with urine prior to mating. Males goats urinate on their beards, legs and bellies to advertise their dominance. Sounds pretty sexist, huh? : http://listverse.com/2012/10/10/top-10-cute-animals-with-disgusting-toilet-habits/

 

4) According to Barry, he is celebrated by the rest of the animal kingdom for his “work to protect goats and kids”…

 

Here Barry receives a fishy breath kiss from Cailey the Dolphin, who can’t keep her fins off him, “Cailley the dolphin found out about my work to protect goats and kids and this was her immediate response.”

 

Barry compares Cailly to the family court judges, and said her kiss is quote “somewhat different from the reactions I have received from the various judges.”   

 

 

5) Barry says criminal cyberstalkers Claudine Dombrowski, Lorraine Tipton and the attack mothers at American Mothers Political Party (AMPP) “made enormous sacrifices for our movement”…while ignoring the abuse they have inflicted on other protective moms, their harassment towards other organizations working for changes in family court and their long history of cyberbullying and harassment (which continues to this day).

 

And then Barry says Bill Windsor, of Lawless America, is wrong for standing up to Claudine, and filing for a protective order to protect himself from the dangerous behavior and threats posed by Claudine and AMPP. Both Claudine and Lorraine made death threats against Bill Windsor, and also posted an online rant saying they want to “get rid of” domestic violence and family court advocate Janice Levinson (Protective Mothers Alliance International).

4) Barry says Claudine Dombrowski of AMPP, a Serial Stalker and Cyber Bully, is a “Legitimate Protective Mother” (seen screen shot below). What is that supposed to mean?  Is Barry so blindly in support of an abuser that he cannot empathize with the very REAL suffering and trauma of a mother struggling in family court against an abuser, and a system that has failed to uphold her rights and failed to protect her child?

Barry Goldstein supports serial stalker and cyberbully Claudine Dombrowski (AMPP) — even as she is attacking fellow professionals in the Mother’s Movement.

5) Does Barry have any Credibility after his License was Revoked?  In 2009, The Grievance Committee for the Ninth Judicial District, State of New York, reviewed 29 charges of professional misconduct against Barry. Of which, 17 charges were upheld, 4 separate charges partly dismissed and 8 charges completely dismissed. As a result, Barry had his license revoked for 5 years and cannot practice law until it is reinstated. http://www.nycourts.gov/reporter/3dseries/2008/2008_10622.htm

The charges involve two separate issues:  A- The main part of Barry’s legal practice, at the time, was representing tenants for a non-profit housing resource center that offers a variety of help to assist families with housing issues, and to restabilize families facing crisis or homelessness. Barry’s actions hurt an organization working hard to help struggling families, and to build stronger neighborhoods–offering help free of charge to needy families.   13 of these charges have to do with Barry mishandling client funds; and specifically that Barry failed to properly manage an escrow account and was inappropriately transferring funds. Barry also failed to keep a separate checkbook for the attorney escrow account, and failed to obtain escrow checks bearing the title “Attorney Escrow Account” or “Attorney Special Account” or “Attorney Trust Account” which would clearly identify where the money was coming from, and who was managing the account.  When asked to respond to the complaint, Barry refused to answer. 

 

B-The second part of the complaint involves how Barry handled a family law case, it should be noted the Battered Mothers Custody Conference (BMCC) was also involved with this client, and their suggestion that the mother go public with her story, including revealing sensitive details about child abuse, may have had negative impact on her custody outcome. The judge  issued a gag order that the last name of the children should not be revealed in order to protect their privacy, and Barry released the last name in an online article about the case. Barry was found to have made dishonest, false and misleading statements to the Court, and to the public when speaking about this case.

Barry claims he is being attacked by the legal system for coming to the rescue of a protective mom…but where is the proof his statements are true? Where are the affidavits or witness statements in support of Barry? And looking at Barry’s delusional comments, and record of defending abusers—how is anyone supposed to “BELIEVE” anything he has to say?

 

6) Dreams, Barry Goldstein has them… Barry has Psychic Dreams about the Deceased President John F. Kennedy; they walked along the beach, and reminisced about their lives. President Kennedy sympathizes with Barry after reading the story about his court woes, “He said he could tell from the details that this was an injustice and it could not stand.” President Kennedy makes a few phone calls, and voila the Court is apologizing to Barry and reversing its decision!

 

Note the concern Barry shows towards those hurt by his actions–the non-profit and its clients, and the mother in family court are not given even one comment as the whole post is focused on Barry alone. The Grievance Committee noted that Barry showed a “complete lack of remorse” in their findings.

Barry Goldstein had a dream that John F Kennedy made a phone call and used his connections to reinstate Barry’s (revoked) law license
