Forum for protective parents and advocates who are concerned for children's safety and rights to be heard in custody decisions. This forum is dedicated to helping victims of domestic violence and child abuse from being revictimized in the legal system.

This is a national crisis in the family courts all over the US and Mothers are losing custody….unfairly by a court system that is not protecting our children. Just imagine, a long clothesline, with mini wooden clothespins, and handprints of all sizes, representing protective mothers and their children who have been “legally kidnapped” by the family courts. We are asking Mothers who have lost physical custody of their child(ren) to create handprints to commemorate their lost child(ren). Throughout weekend of the conference, we will be providing materials and ask Mothers to add paper cut-out handprints to the clothesline. However, Mothers do NOT need to be in attendance at the conference in order to add their handprints. Please mail the handprints before Jan. 2, 2010 to: Linda Marie Sacks P.O.

    UK: Murder-Suicides Committed by Males

    Post by Admin on Tue Dec 29, 2009 2:44 pm

    From Dastardly Dads:

    Yet another person dead because a "very volatile" UNNAMED DAD was granted child visitation, and the mother was required to provide it. Now the 4-year-old daughter is dead--shot through the head---and Mum is fighting for her life.

    Andy Copeland Shot & Killed Daughter & Self, Mum Fighting for Life

    Post by Admin on Wed Dec 30, 2009 7:56 pm

    An article from the Mirror called
    Jilted lover shoots dead daughter and leaves mum fighting for life in a crazed attack in Aldershot
    has media bias calling 56 year old Andy Copeland a "jilted lover". It should have said "violent bully" as leaving this guy and staying away forever could have saved the little girl's life and saved the mum from being shot.

    Maisie was only 4 years old and is now dead. Her mom Julie (whose last name isn't given in this article) is in critical condition.

    Julie is 40 years old, Andy was 56. This age difference is a common factor in murder-suicides. An age difference by itself is not a red flag for murder-suicide by any means, but combined with other factors can often indicate an increased risk to the family of murder-suicide. Substance abuse, a personality disorder and history of abuse, of course, are all signs.

    For more on what risk factors lead to increase risk of lethality, see Why Angry Men Kill

    What needs to happen is for victims of abuse to be able to leave WITH THEIR CHILDREN.

    If Julie hadn't brought Maisie to Andy Copeland under the pretense that visitation with an abusive father is a good thing, then maybe Maisie would be alive and her Mum and her would be somewhere together SAFE.
