” Finally.

  The Pelletier family of West Hartford has told  FOXCT their daughter, Justina, will be returned to her family Wednesday.

  Lou Pelletier, Justina’s father, says a juvenile judge issued the order Tuesday afternoon, returning custody of Justina to her parents.

  The Pelletiers lost custody 16 months ago to the State of Massachusetts, after disagreements over a medical diagnosis.

  Since then, Justina has been in the care of Boston Chrildren’s Hospital and Youth facilities.

  I am so happy for Lou and Linda Pelletier.  I had several private conversations with Lou during the darkest days, and I can tell you the self-restraint he showed controlling a hurricane of emotions was amazing.  He never gave up (the easy part), and he never gave into his anger and outrage (much harder).


The state of Massachusetts, on the other hand, remained a-s-wipes to the bitter end:


  Three months ago, in a sharply worded opinion highly critical of the parents’ conduct, the judge gave permanent custody of Justina to the Mass. DCF, and said he believed psychological issues explained much of the teenager’s ailments.

  However, top officials at DCF earlier this month filed papers with the judge suggesting the parents had made significant progress and recommended that custody return to the parents.

“ Significant progress?” The parents weren’t doing anything different in June than they were in March. There was no “progress,” just as there was never any–NOT ANY–evidence ever presented that the Pelletiers had been abusing Justina before Massachusetts DCF and Boston Children’s performed their “parentectomy.”

  More on this story tomorrow. Meanwhile….FREE AT LAST, FREE AT LAST, THANK GOD ALMIGHTY JUSTINA IS FREE AT LAST! “

Judge Awards “Permanent” Custody Of Justina Pelletier To DCF Officials









” 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






Massachusetts Breaks Silence About Justina Pelletier, Drops Gag Order Against Father


” Today the state spoke out on Justina’s situation. Massachusetts DCF spokesman, Alec Loftus said, “Our primary goal has always been the health and well-being of Justina. We want the parents to be able to work with the providers and courts to ultimately move Justina back to her home state of Connecticut. That is the objective, and is consistent with our previous efforts to find an appropriate placement near her home. A medical team has been identified at Tufts, the family’s provider of choice, with the clinical expertise to care for Justina.

  While this sounds like positive news for Lou and Linda, the parents are not very hopeful.

  Lou told The Blaze, “They have thrown more carrots out there over the last 13 months, dangling, teasing us, and that’s the cruelest thing you can do.” He claimed the state has made several broken promises regarding the Justina’s custody in the past. “Actions speak louder than words,” he said.”

    Ben Swann has more on the state’s latest moves and if you’d like to make your feelings know about state sponsored kidnapping there will be a rally today at noon in Framingham Massachusetts:

    ― Dietrich Bonhoeffer

   If you are anywhere near Framingham this afternoon please stop by and lend your support . It will be greatly appreciated and after all , the next child stolen may be yours .

Teen In Medical Dispute Sent To Foster Care



” A Connecticut couple sobbed outside a Boston courtroom after a legal setback in their yearlong battle to regain custody of their daughter.

  The state of Massachusetts took charge of Justina Pelletier as her parents and doctors at Children’s Hospital continue to clash over her diagnosis and treatment. The teen’s mom broke down in court. Paramedics wheeled Linda Pelletier from the courthouse Monday afternoon minutes after she collapsed upon hearing a judge order her embattled teenaged daughter into foster care.

“ This child has been ripped away from this family,” Rev. Patrick Mahoney of the Christian Defense Coalition said.”



    This is State sanctioned kidnapping . There is no other way to describe this horrendous miscarriage of justice at the hands of the “halls of justice” . The Pelletier case has little peer in regards to disgraceful behavior by the State is concerned and all of us Americans need hang our heads in shame at allowing the State to grow this powerful .

 Please read this article by Susan Knowles that details the well documented , but unreformed issues that the Department of Children And Families stands accused of .


” In 2010, Children’s Rights, a New York based non-profit organization, advocating for the rights of children, filed a class-action lawsuit against DCF.  Children’s Rights alleges that thousands of children in DCF’s care suffered neglect, abuse, and even death in some instances.

  More specifically, in the class-action lawsuit of Connor B. vs. Patrick, Children’s Rights represents 8,500 children who were allegedly abused or neglected while in DCF’s care.

  The lawsuit:

“ Charges the state’s Department of Children and Families (DCF) with violating the constitutional rights of children by routinely placing them in dangerous and unstable situations once removed from their parents’ care and failing to take necessary actions to meet the legal obligation of the state-run child welfare system to ensure the safety and well-being of children in its custody.” “



    Far from being the savior of children this government sponsored criminal enterprise needs a complete examination and overhaul before they are allowed to destroy even one more family . See also our reblog of Ms Knowles post where she provides the most detailed account of the Pelletier case that we have come across .

While there is an important need to find abused children and to protect them, the current system is only finding a small percentage of those truly abused children. The rest of their statistics that guarantee a high departmental income are from families who never abused their children.

Hospital Holds West Hartford Girl For 9 Months After Parents Argue Diagnosis

Justina Pelletier


” After a long history of medical problems, a West Hartford teenager is now “trapped” inside a hospital with seemingly no way out.

In December 2012, Justina Pelletier was an active 15-year-old girl who would go ice skating, laughed and spent time with her family.

But just two months later, her family says their nightmare began.
“[Exhales] It’s beyond any wildest nightmare that you could think of,” says Justina’s father, Lou Pelletier.

“It’s the most bizarre situation … I’ve ever been involved with,” says Dean Hokanson, the clinical psychologist who has worked with Justina the past five years.

Justina was diagnosed with mitochondrial disease a few years ago. It’s a genetic disorder that can cause loss of muscle coordination and weakness.

     The corrupting influence of the State is even turning the medical establishment against the citizens . A young girl is forcibly taken from her parents because the parents desired a second opinion . Where are parent’s rights ? Since when does the State authorize the medical profession to kidnap and hold children against their will ?

   This is an outrage , yet an inevitable result of the growth of the Leviathan State . Maybe Obamacare is a good thing after all and will drive us away from the medical state and foster the creation of an underground healthcare system that adheres to first principles , individual freedoms and accepts cash payments for reasonably priced treatments without threat of dealing with medical staff that in reality are government stool pigeons .

  This is another fine example of Hillary Clinton’s “it takes a village” idea and we should expect more of this sort of thing as the State grows ever more powerful . Imagine where we will be if the State becomes the sole provider of our healthcare . 


Glenn Beck has picked up the story :


“We are talking about the story that is up on The Blaze, ‘It’s kidnapping: Hospital takes custody of a girl.’ Imagine your 15-year-old daughter, you take her in because she has a flu, and you are told you have to get out. And you are escorted out by police, and you no longer have custody of your child because you disagree with the diagnosis,” Glenn said exasperatedly. “And so the parents now, for nine months, have been fighting this. The judge put a gag order, so nothing can get out, which is another thing that is absolutely wrong. That is absolutely wrong. “
