- "Parents Who Have Successfully Fought
Parental Alienation Syndrome" - Jayne
A. Major, Ph.D. - Nothing stirs up passions
more than the controversy generated when parents
are at war over the custody of a child. A
controversy is an issue where evidence on
both sides can make a compelling case. It
is never black and white, but when people
have their emotions aroused, an issue can
quickly turn into two polar opposites...
6/2004 - "The
Failure of Family Law ...", By Kenneth
C. Wiggins- Thirty years ago, our government's
thinking wasn't all that bad. While eighty
percent of fathers paid their reasonable share
of child support expenses, there were twenty
percent who did not. Faced with rising welfare
costs, the government's idea was to recover
some of the costs of welfare through an enforcement
of child support payments, specifically aimed
at the twenty percent of those "bad dads"
who didn't pay anything.

in Marital Context" - George L. Blum,
J.D. - SUMMARY: Recovery of emotional distress
damages is permitted by many jurisdictions
in cases of intentional torts. Damages for
purely psychological injuries are recoverable
if a defendant's conduct is gross and wanton,
malicious, willful or wanton, indifferent,
or reckless and was directed toward the plaintiff...

- Boyd Pickens' 32-year teaching career fell
apart in five seconds. After a skirmish with
rowdy students, an accusation by a girl with
marks on her arms, questioning by police at
school, banishment from co-workers, the filing
of criminal charges and the placement of Pickens'
name on a child abuse registry, the not-guilty
verdict returned by a Jefferson County jury
in November was cold comfort.

of Abuse" - "Crimes against children
are unspeakable," notes Colorado Education
Association Attorney Greg Lawler, who has
been fighting for teachers' rights for 15
years. He adds, "the natural instinct of our
society is to protect our children at all
cost. In the process, collateral damage has
been done to teachers wrongly accused of abuse."

example of the immediate presumption of guilt
following the accusation of child sex abuse,

- "Multiple Accusations Prove Guilt—The Miami
Method" - The impact obtained by the
popular hysterical fear of paedophilia on
an American state justice system which adopted
multiple accusations as proof of guilt. Grant
Snowdon was a Miami police officer who was
accused by another policeman ,a personal enemy,
of child abuse. Official investigation revealed
only a claim by an eleven year old girl who
thought she remembered something that happened
when she was four years old. And this proved
insufficient to persuade a jury who found
the defendant "Not Guilty".
- "Beware the Child Protectors" -
It is vitally important that we educate families
and parents about the dangers of home visitation
programs, and the totalitarian nature of the
vision behind those programs... Mrs. Adolf’s
problems began when her eight-year-old daughter
was "intimidated" into making allegations
of sexual abuse. When Salt Lake City police
and caseworkers from the state Division of
Child and Family Services (DCFS) surrounded
the home of Janet Adolf on June 4th, they
were not responding to an accusation of child
abuse or neglect. The armed raid had been
staged to seize Mrs. Adolf’s eight-year-old
daughter, who wasn’t at home — although her
three terrified siblings were. According to
Mrs. Adolf’s attorney Michael Humiston, the
order had been issued because he had advised
caseworkers of his intention to monitor their
visits to Mrs. Adolf’s home in order "to protect
