There Must Be A Change, There Is Abuse Of Authority, Victims Are Innocent Children
" Through an investigation of the organization in California they have identified existing crime inside the California family courts. Many of the cases have been identified involving male perpetrators of domestic violence and child molest getting custody. Fathers getting out of criminal prosecution and women and children punished in jails and mental institutions.
Mothers are forced into excessive and abusive court proceedings where they are drained financially and emotionally. They are bullied into submitting to ongoing evaluations, mediation and therapy, so that they will be deemed difficult and uncooperative and therefore unfit to parent their children.
Originally devised as the means to cover up evidence of child sexual abuse when the father is the perpetrator, the PAS legal strategy calls for the involvement of custody evaluators, attorneys for children, "special masters" (mediators with quasi-judicial authority), supervision monitors and other court-appointees operating in the guise of family "conciliation court". Who collaborate to shift blame to mothers trying to maintain custody a protect their children. PAS calls for institutionalizing children to convince them that they were not really abused by their father, but that their mothers are crazy.
Through illegally crafted orders, phony custody reports and improper "ex-parte" (emergency unnoticed) proceedings, court appointees rig the outcomes of cases in favor of abusive men. By labeling mothers "alienators", blaming them for denying fathers "access" to the children and prosecuting mothers for custodial interference" or similar "crimes", the family court works with the District Attorney to criminalize mothers' attempts to escape abuse and protect their children.
