” In a ruling that deals a striking blow to the parents of Justina Pelletier, a judge has ruled that the state of Massachusetts will received “permanent” custody of Pelletier.
After the Liberty Counsel litigation team filed a contempt of court motion against the Massachusetts Department of Children and Families (DCF) in the Justina Pelletier case a judge ruled against her parents.
The decision came after Lou Pelletier, Justina’s father, disclosed to the attorneys representing her and her family that Justina’s health is rapidly deteriorating. After a Friday visit, Justina’s older sister, Jennifer, told Fox News Connecticut (Fox CT) that her sister’s health is “scary” and she has never seen her in worse condition.
As a local newspaper reports:
In what appears to be a major setback to the parents of a Connecticut teenager in the middle of a long-running custody dispute, a Massachusetts juvenile court judge Tuesday issued a ruling giving “permanent” custody of Justina Pelletier to the state Department of Children and Families, which then leaves it up to the agency to decide if or when she should be returned back home.”
Unfucking believable … Now do you believe the STATE is out of control ?
” The case is drawing national attention, as Boston Children’s Hospital filed a “medical child abuse” complaint against Justina’s parents last year, leading the state to take custody of her and hospitalize her for almost a year.
A judge had previously sentenced the Connecticut teenager, who has been caught in a yearlong custody fight between her parents and Massachusetts child protection officials, to a new foster care program in Massachusetts. The ruling triggered an anguished response from her parents when it was announced by a juvenile court judge and pro-life advocates were also up in arms.
Pelletier has only been allowed one, one hour supervised visit per week with her mom and dad and they have not been permitted to take photographs of their daughter. But, following new legal pressure asserted by Liberty Counsel and intense media scrutiny, DCF permitted the most recent visitation to be unsupervised. Rev. Pat Mahoney, a nationally known pro-life activist, accompanied Lou and Linda Pelletier to visit Justina.”
This shameful travesty of justice proves a point that we’ve long been making that the citizens can no longer expect the courts to defend them against the depravations of the State . Heads need to roll and unfortunately we are/have reached the point where that expression needs to be taken literally .
All involved , from the doctors at Boston Children’s hospital to those responsible at Massachusetts DCF to Judge Johnston himself need to be run out of practice and jailed or worse . There is no excuse for ripping a child from a loving family and banishing that child to the purgatory of State run care . Given the record of child protection services nationwide the average kid would be better off with a crackhead mom or on the streets alone than in foster care … Disgusting …
For the uninitiated you can catch up on this disgraceful example of out of control government by reading our previous posts on Justina and her family’s plight here , here , here , here , here , here , and here .
Read the rest … if it doesn’t make you want to beat someone , or worse , we’d be very surprised
