First, do no harm: Effectively interviewing children

But take the most seasoned interviewer with a tremendous felony closure rate, stick them in a room with a five-year-old victim of ongoing sexual assault, and the interview can go to hell in a handbasket in a New York minute if the interviewer hasn’t had specialized training in interviewing children.

Parents of the UK, this is a war against families.  If you all had some balls, you'd respond accordingly.

FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE: OCEAN COUNTY OFFICIALS CONDONE CHILD ABUSE, KIDNAPPING & EXTORTION


Contact: Elizabeth Radmore
Email to: sheerides@yahoo.com

FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE: OCEAN COUNTY OFFICIALS CONDONE CHILD ABUSE , KIDNAPPING & EXTORTION

It's just business as usual. The indifference of Ocean County Family Judge Patricia Roe & Marlene Lynch Ford reaches all the way to N.C.

North Carolina resident angry over the lack of action by the N.J. Ocean County Prosecutor Marlene Lynch Ford.  Not only is it infuriating , it 's a sad state of affairs.

When people in power, who are supposed to enforce the law, won't even uphold it. I guess it really is a selective process for them. The children apparently don't matter or take the priority that they should.

What's the point of these laws? Asks Liz Radmore of North Carolina.

You can be sure that if this was their child being abused , kidnapped and kept from them , there would be some action.” Someone would most definitely be in jail right now.” Says Radmore.

The Forked River father has violated the law and the orders of the court.  The court orders gave joint custody to both parents. It was supposed to be set up that the child would have alternating weekends with his Mother & two other brothers. That didn't happen.

This has gone on since the divorce was finalized in 1998. There is no statue of limitations on Kidnapping.  When Mom would attempt to exercise her visitation rights. She was arrested.  Then dragged off in handcuffs from her child's soccer game. Even though she was well within her rights to be there & remained at the required distance away.

The incident severely traumatized the child, his siblings and his Mother.

Several months before the arrest , the Mother and all three of the children were forced to live at The Providence House in Toms River. A shelter for abused women & children. The father had obtained a restraining order as retaliation for revealing the abuse. He lied, in fact it took several attempts to get the order because he was lying , and it was obvious. That is until officials realized that there was a prominent family name involved.

“That was a game changer “says Radmore. All  the Father had to do then was to call in a few favors , and throw around some cash & few threats. The already corrupt Ocean County was happy to oblige.  All at the expense of the kids involved.

Many attempts were made by the Mom to have the court orders enforced. She was met with further arrests and threats. On one occasion Police were called to supervise what was supposed to be scheduled visiting time . When the Police arrived they informed Mom that “they don't have to enforce court orders”,

There was a lot of back slapping & reminiscing , as it turns out the officers went to school with Dad.

Every time the court was notified and/or motioned about what was happening, they disregarded it.

On the rare occasion that the judge would grant something in favor of the Mother or in the best interest of the children. It would look good on paper. But nothing ever materialized. The kids never got to see each other. The youngest child was  literally ripped out of his life, separated from his Mother, his brothers and all of
his maternal family. This is one of the highest forms of abuse.

It continues to affect all of their lives.

If the severe emotional trauma wasn't enough, then Ocean County would once again be happy to oblige. This time they would attack the very foundation of the Children, the finances.

To further exasburate things, the Mother was ordered to pay a large amount of child support.    Editors note: (The Father makes a six figure salary . Currently Mothers obligation due to arrearages & interest is close to fifty thousand)

When the Mother became increasingly Ill & could no longer work she began collecting Disability. Once again the motions to the court requesting a decrease was denied. The court then increased her support obligation to the point of homelessness.

This situation is by no means an isolated occurance.

It's happening all over the U.S. The consequences are enormous. Any child who suffers from severe trauma like this , never functions as a normal adult. They simply can't. The professionals all agree. The child will always feel like they are at fault or that the other parent doesn't want them. Therefore they must be unloved
or unwanted. This carries on with them through adulthood. Affecting every possible area of life from personal intimate relationships, into their work life & beyond.

The most recent hearing was in March on a motion that the Mother filed. In which she requested seven items. Judge Roe granted only one. She in fact just skipped over some of the requests altogether. Including requests to enforce orders & apply the current NJ kidnapping law.

One item that Judge Roe did in fact grant, stated that she was allowed to contact the now grown child. “Provided that he agrees”. There are two main problems with that. One is that the Father still refuses to furnish any contact info, and secondly by now the child surely feels abandoned by his Mother.  (Editors note: child currently attends college via scholarships)

The corruption is so rampant and widespread in Ocean County that there are widely popular blog sites dedicated exclusively to it. Some posters are even suggesting class action lawsuits. Stating that Civil Rights are being violated.

“I agree completely” states Radmore. “This is long overdue & it's time for the children to be priority one”. It's something the ACLU should be alerted to & actively investigating.

Many of our policy makers work hard to get bills passed & put into action. They are meant to protect the citizens. Especially our children, they are the helpless ones here.

“We have to be vocal for them, they are our future” says Radmore.

What does it say about us as a nation when the very leaders that put into power for us, on our behalf continually turns a blind eye?

“It's sickening really “ says Radmore.” I personally know of at least three children's lives that are forever changed & broken because of this”.

On May 9th 2012 Certified letters were received by both women. Calling for them to take action. Neither one of them would even acknowledge that they received the  letters Follow up calls were also ignored.
