PARENTAL ALIENATION ACKNOWLEDGED BY JUDGE
Jul 13, 2015 — Parents, Grandparents, Signatories,
On July 9th, 2015 Bill Laitner reported in The Detroit Free Press “Judge jails kids for refusing lunch with dad.” It refers to a six year long child custody case in Michigan, USA.
The news caused social media commotion about Judge Lisa Garcyca charge of contempt of court against three underage siblings for refusing contact with their alienated father. The uproar is about sending the three minors to Children’s Village, a juvenile retention center. Judge Garcyca’s ruling is a landmark decision in divorce and custody cases. On June 24th, 2015, the judge dealt with contempt of court committed by minors, equal parenting rights and parental alienation in a single hearing. The judge in a new ruling ordered the children to be sent to a summer camp instead.
The United Nations Convention on the Rights of the Child (CRC) grant minors rights. Yet, CRC advocates such as the 18 members of the UN Committee on the Rights of the Child, social workers, appointed court specialists, schools and judicial systems among others, do not instill in minors the notions that with rights come ethics, obligations and responsibilities. Children are mislead to believe that being a minor is good enough reason to be exonerated from legal wrongdoings, unethical behavior, moral irresponsibility and incivility against their own parents and society.
From an emotional point of view, judge Garcyca’s sentence seems harsh. From a legal perspective, the children had their rights respected in accord with CRC article 12, the “Right to be Heard” in administrative and judicial situations. Their “Best Interest” was also taken into consideration as required in article 3 of the CRC. The judge offered the minors an opportunity to purge themselves from contempt of court, but the siblings blatantly refused judge Garcyca’s proposal.
Global jurisprudence is lagging behind parents and children’s dire realities. Parents and grandparents all over the world are screaming to have parental alienation criminalized. The lack of pertinent laws allows the judicial system, most times to disgracefully cooperate in the dehumanization and financial destruction of alienated mothers and fathers. As it stands today, except for Brazil and Mexico, there are not legal provisions to prevent, outlaw and penalize parental alienation. Judge Garcyca’s sentencing should be a rude awakening for antagonistic parents, children and the child industry. Hopefully, it will be the beginning of a new discourse in domestic and international family law in search of fair treatment of parents and children.
Laws to criminalize parental alienation are long overdue. Few conscientious judges have ruled to the best of their ability to stop alienation. For instance in May 2008, Canadian judge James Turnbull in an precedent ruling ordered professionally deprograming of a severely alienated child. A decision that appears to be merciful an perhaps more socially acceptable than judge Garcyca’s decision to send the children to a juvenile retention center. Much to the detriment of the parties involved, judge Turnbull decision was immediately criticized and blocked by judge Thea Herman of the Superior Court in Ontario, citing deprogramming as a controversial treatment order.
What’s next for judges and jurisprudence?
Simple, outlaw parental alienation and enforce it!
Simplistic thought, complicated solution. All child related judicial, education, health, immigration and criminal laws are impacted or rooted by the Convention on the Rights of the Child. The CRC claims of the best interest of the child has become synonymous with dishonestly. United nations and its organizations are oblivious to the social devastation caused by the interpretation and recommendations of the Committee on the Rights of the Child. The CRC treaty and the Committee derive their strength appealing to emotions through antagonist propaganda against biological parents. While Parents do not hold legal or human rights and their natural rights are callously dismissed, parental alienation, forcible removal and forcible adoption will continue to thrive and survive unpunished.
Worldwide aggravated parents must come together to eradicate parental alienation, forcible child removal and forcible adoption. A relative few conscientious judges in the world can not overturn ineffective, outdated, draconic Family Laws without the help of loud outcry from citizens. Neither will governments be willing to invoke article 52 of the CRC without the world community demanding withdrawal from the UN Convention on the Rights of the Child.
