California Safe Child Coalition: Children Should Maintain a Relationship with Abusers

The California Safe Child Coalition Believes Children Should “Maintain a Relationship” with an Abusive Parent… Is this What the Mother’s Movement Stands For?

The point of this article is not debate the merits of supervised visitation but to point out the conflicting messages of some of the leaders in the Mother’s Movement; that, on one hand, say children should be protected from an abuser, even to remove all contact with that parent  and, on the other hand, say an abusing parent deserves a relationship with the child they have harmed—and this relationship should be fostered, and encouraged to grow in supervised visitation (which will lead to unsupervised visits, and likely the alleged abuser will gain custody). SO what does the Mother’s Movement really believe?

 Quote:The California Safe Child Coalition works with national, state and local government agencies, private organizations and individuals to keep children safe.

We seek a massive culture shift in the California court system. We strive to endure that children remain safe in the custody of protective parents, while maintaining relationships with their abusing parents through court-ordered supervised visitation”. This includes parents who have sexually abused children.

 

WHO IS THE CALIFORNIA SAFE CHILD COALITION?

The California Safe Child Coalition is compromised of some of the largest organizations leading the Mother’s Movement today; many who have appeared at the Battered Mothers Custody Conference (BMCC).

THE CONTRADICTION: QUOTES FROM THOSE IN THE MOTHER’S MOVEMENT AGAINST SUPERVISED VISITATION BETWEEN A CHILD & AN ALLEGED ABUSER

These statements from advocates and mothers in the Mother’s Movement directly challenge California Safe Child Coalition’s statement that abusive parents deserve a relationship with the children they have abused, and that relationship should be fostered in supervised visitation.  Keep in mind, the purpose of supervised visitation is temporary, and almost always results in unsupervised visitation, and increased custody.

Many of these leaders/advocates/mothers believe that a child who has been abused will be at risk for further abuse if they continue to have a relationship with a parent who has harmed them in the past, and that placing a child in supervised visitation with an abuser is traumatic. Many of these voices come from mothers who have been through the family court system, have dealt with supervised visitation, and witnessed its failures.

So who is the California Safe Child Coalition fighting for, and why??

From Barry GoldsteinWe have seen repeatedly that courts create an urgency to restore normal visitation to fathers even in the face of serious safety risks…The(re is) disparity in how supervised visitation is handled between mothers and fathers…the courts that couldn’t wait to resume visitation with a dangerous father are willing to delay years before resuming normal visitation with a safe mother…”

And, “Instead of pressuring mothers to cooperate with their abusers they can be using their power and authority to require him to stop his abuse if he wants to have a relationship with the children. It is important for legislators and court professionals to understand that children do not need both parents equally. They need the safe parent more than the abusive one and their primary attachment figure more than their other parent. ..” “The Broken Court System: Is There Reason for Hope?” by Barry Goldstein: http://www.barrygoldstein.net/important-articles

 

From “Family Court Matters” : FCM posted an article on corruption and greed within the supervised visitation provider network, many of their comments also seem applicable to California Safe Child Coalition.. “Why, becomes the question, would an anti-domestic violence (“End Domestic Violence” indicates they want it to stop) be collaborating with the infamous Supervised Visitation Field, which is known to spring out of the father’s rights and welfare reform fountain?”

 

And,Again, I have to ask, how could such a well-known (in the field) group go for so long absent any corporate existence? Not registered with the State of California to do business in California–but it sure looks like they are consistently billing and being paid to do business in California….” “Good Cause to Eliminate (Funding for): Access Visitation, Supervised Visitation, and Batterer’s Intervention, PERIOD!” http://familycourtmatters.wordpress.com/2013/11/29/good-cause-to-eliminate-funding-for-access-visitation-supervised-visitation-and-batterers-intervention-period/

From The Liz Library: “Supervised visitation cannot continue indefinitely, and controlling, violent, or child molesting parents aren’t going to change. So what is the point? ….

It’s a band-aid for 10 weeks, or 6 months, or whatever, and then the abusive parent will most likely go back to court, after behaving “safely” or “nicely” in the presence of supervisors, and get unsupervised visitation. The supervised visitation center will have made money, the parents will have lost money, the litigation will have remained open, the abusive parent will be even more angry and resentful, additional therapies and interventions will be recommended and tried (all as the abuse fades into the past and claimed irrelevancy), and overall, the entire situation will be even more miserable than it was before for the victims.” — The Liz Library, “Endless $tupidity: domestic violence victim advocacy for supervised visitation centers (Endless stupidity or professional self-interest–there’s no other choice.)” http://www.thelizlibrary.org/site-index/site-index-frame.html#soulhttp://www.thelizlibrary.org/supervised-visitation/supervised-visitation-stupidity.html

National Safe Child Coalition: Posted an article on August 12, 2103 about a man who killed his child during supervised visitation to spite his ex. NSCC followed with these thoughts, “They have dangerous people ordered into supervised visitation at the YMCA while protective parents who pose no threat are ordered into prison like rooms for supervised visitation with their children.”

KATHLEEN RUSSELL AND CJE’S MONEY TRAIL INVESTIGATED BY FAMILYLAWCOURTS.COM: WHAT TAX RETURNS REVEAL

Source: http://www.familylawcourts.com/non_profits.html

Family Law Courts is investigating “DV advocates who don’t want to see women empowered” and they claim most advocates are corrupt, and in the business to make a profit, not help victims of abuse. 

Family Law Courts has investigated a number of individuals and non-profits including Kathleen Russell of The Center for Judicial Excellence (CJE) aka “The Center”. Kathleen Russell is an unmarried woman with no children who is the co-founder and staff consultant at CJE. Why? Family Law Courts has pulled Russell’s tax records and raised allegations that CJE is just another money making organization within the family court system, similar to what protective mothers are fighting against.

Quote: (2008) “Tax records reveal in one year the Center for Judicial Excellence accepted grants and donations in the amount of $215,052.00 (Line “L”). Of that amount (Line 13) $187,000 went to outside sources. The source?

Page 4, Line 151. Kathleen Russell Consulting.”

That’s means 86% of grants and donations to CJE went directly to Kathleen Russell Consulting.

From 2006-2010, CJE took in $922,323 dollars in grants and contributions, if 86% were paid to Kathleen Russell Consulting that would earn her  $793,198 in 4 years. OR $198,299 dollars a year. With that large amount of money, you would hope to see a more substantial change in family court–not a solution that fosters a relationship between a child and an abuser, and throws the family back into the troubled family court system. 

EVEN CLAUDINE DOMBROWSKI ADMITS: IT’S AL ABOUT THE $$ MONEY $$

Is it so far-fetched that the domestic violence advocates and leaders would compromise their stated goals to protect women and children to make a profit?

One more screen shot to consider…

This was taken from Barry Goldstein’s wall, keep in mind Barry is a former attorney who was disbarred after mishandling money belonging to a non-profit organization. Here Barry is begging his supporters “to contact local dv groups, colleges, and other other organizations that could sponsor (PAY) a program for me to speak at.”

Like Kathleen, Barry works as a speaker and consultant. What is a consultant? Someone who can give advice or share ideas about family court, domestic violence and related issues without a law license; and make a profit from speaking, public engagements, writing books, etc.

Claudine Dombrowski responds with this interesting comment,”Yo gf I’m awake. Eyes wide open 20 yrs. I also know that in the communities the heart people not all enjoy this you use what you can get it in any way you can. Through anyone you can.

It’s your choice. Try to balance like the dv orgs do (there funding is 3/4 fr tagged), or push the truth the common sense. Or…you can keep preaching to the choir… Put it where it needs to be.

 

Claudine Dombrowski: “Get it in any way you can”

Keep asking questions, and be open to uncovering the truth….

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.

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.

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.

Maria Melinn Calls for Jail Protest – Does She Deserve It?

UPDATE:
ATW NOTE: We at ATW clearly understand that that there are systemic failures in family court including gender bias towards Mothers, corruption and general incompetence that occurs. We at ATW acknowledge that there are Mothers jailed every day for unfair, and unjust reasons.

With this in mind we should not be blinded to the truth. We need to take a closer look when the history, patterns of behavior, and documented evidence suggests that certain individuals claiming to be victims (or even advocates) are not being truthful, and may in fact be abusers—not victims. The drama and chaos caused by these
individuals make it very difficult for others to tell if abuse or injustice is present, we understand this.

Clearly Maria Melinn, has shown by her patterns of behavior and the evidence posted in the public domain, that she has a serious lack of regard for her children’s’ safety, personal feelings and overall well-being. Maria repeatedly has put her own needs/wants in front of that of her children. This is a pattern of behavior, with a history behind it, not just a momentary lapse of judgment.

ATW supports mothers facing injustice in family court. We also condemn predator parents ( mothers OR fathers)—including moms like Maria Melinn—who are wolves in sheep’s clothing.

Predator Moms are pretending to be victims, pretending to be protective mothers. They exhaust the resources of advocates and organizations who are trying to help the honest victim. They exhaust the advocates’ and organizations’ time, energy and draw attention to themselves, away from honest protective mothers who urgently need help . They are unable or unwilling to focus on their children or making meaningful change because they demand so much attention or create so much chaos. Their needs come first in everything as they seek the spotlight, or manipulate others to do their bidding. When confronted they cry abuse—they never take responsibility, and claim to be the victim to avoid being exposed in their lies and game playing. These Moms exploit pain and tragedy for their own gain.

Predator Moms are harming real protective mothers and destroying the credibility of the Mother’s Movement. ATW is committed to exposing Predator Moms and the organizations that support/help them.

Breaking News:
We understand that once again Maria Bauer Melinn has been thrown in jail by Judge Cronin…she will be required to spend three days a week in jail from now until November 2013.

Maria is asking that everyone protest outside the jail in a desperate attempt to drum up sympathy for herself. What do you think the picket signs should say???


Maria don’t forget your crown when you go in..

The press release issued by Abused Swan on Maria’s sentence was difficult to read, as she was going off on tangents and trying to blame others rather than address why Maria is in jail this time: http://recalljudgecronin.wordpress.com/2013/07/07/urgent-press-release

Maria is asking for your support, that you call the jail, call the judge, protest in front of the jail.. but does she deserve it?

Understand that with Maria in jail, her children will actually have a chance at having some peace in their lives…even if only temporary.


Some examples of the abuse and exploitation the children have suffered from their mother Maria Bauer Melinn include the following, all taken from web sites supporting Maria:

Maria has continued to use the identity of her children in multiple online postings, in multiple places without any regard to their safety, privacy or personal wishes…these children have had their identity stolen by Maria’s aggressive and unwanted use of their personal information

-Posted on Child Endangerment Alerts, a sister site to “Abused Swan” is a CPS document (from Feb 2009) Maria thought would further her claims of abuse against her ex but instead reveals that Maria sought abuse charges against her ex that were investigated and found to be without merit and that when asked to get a statement from a medical doctor to prove her allegations of abuse, Maria was unable to do so. Also in this report, Mr. Melinn admitted to one act of domestic violence that occurred about 10 years earlier but was found, at this time, to be an appropriate caregiver.
http://childendangermentalerts.wordpress.com/2006/10/18/child-endangerment-alert/

This is from Maria’s own website—and is public information. If you disagree with this report, take it up with Maria because she alone is responsible for posting this.

Direct Quote “The worker informed Ms. Melinn that if she could get a doctor to put in a report that they were being emotionally abused by their father, CPS would be able to do something.

Ms. Melinn had sent this worker documentation from the last 10 years in order to show that Mr. Melinn is an emotionally abusive person. However, there was no report from a doctor.. There was nothing that indicted that Mr. Melinn was abusive or neglectful of his children.”

Also in this report, “This worker informed Ms. Melinn that I would be denying my case as the injuries — sustained all appear to be accidental and that the kids all told me that they were happy living with their dad. Ms. Melinn stated they are just saying that because they are scared of their dad. The worker told her that may be, but I had no evidence to prove that.”

Maria could not get her evidence introduced because she lacked a certified copy of a police report, and the CPS report was found to be heresy so she calls her son to testify and give evidence, pressuring this child (as she later did with her youngest in that infamous video) to make abuse allegations against his father, and take the side of his mother (Maria).

It seems more likely that Maria planned to call her son as a witness all along, because most Courts have a procedure to introduce evidence that includes creating a witness list, and that the child would just be available to testify and just happen to be at the courtroom is very unlikely unless it was planned for him to be there.

The child clearly stated he did not want to be on the witness stand, he did not want to be involved. Instead of respecting his wishes, Maria calls him to the witness stand anyways and says his reluctance must be because he is being abused.

In a bizarre twist, Deanna the court watcher then accuses Mr. Melinn of “parental alienation” and her “proof” is unfounded allegations that Mr. Melinn would drill the child for information regarding what happened in Maria’s home.. and yet Maria is doing exactly this by forcing her child to go on the witness stand and drilling him with questions, and pressuring him to make abuse allegations. Instead of respecting the child’s wishes to be left alone, and kept out of legal proceedings. Maria then goes online posting personal information about her children, using their full legal name and repeating abuse allegations after being asked not to involve her children in this!

Direct Quote: “After her documents were not allowed as evidence Maria called her (second oldest) son — to the stand. Once on the stand, — stated he did not want to be involved. If the child did not want to be involved, what was he doing at the hearing? Maria understands that her children do not tell the truth so that they are not harmed physically or mentally and does not hold anything the child says or does against him.”

Despite this evidence, and more, the clueless Mothers of Lost Children (MOLC) organization, associated with AMPP, is calling for all Sistas to pick up their picket signs and protest at the jail, hoping to free Maria by showing public support.

But what should the picket signs say????? Hmmm…

In the interest of trying to support the Sistas, we are launching **another contest** this time it is not a dance contest (thanks anyways Brannon!!) but is a design a picket sign for Maria contest.
