I’ll admit up front; I don’t know all the facts of this case.
And I doubt we’ll ever really find them out. This case has been jammed forcibly onto the radars of pretty much every person in the Twin Cities media and pundocracy for quite some time now, by parties – family law attorneys – who appear to be as inept as Heather Martens when it comes to shaping public opinion.
And so I’ll admit that I don’t know everything one needs to know about the case.
But if the facts are as the father has presented them (and given the exceedingly erratic behavior of the mother throughout this case, and, in my frank opinion, the retention of Michelle MacDonald as counsel, I’m inclined to believe the father) and the defendant brainwashed the children against the father?
If that’s the case? If there’s ever been a case to justify waterboarding someone, this is it.
Any parent who brainwashes their children against their other parent has to look waaaaay up to see Nazi war criminals. While I oppose the death penalty on principle, I think any parent who brainwashes and kidnaps the kids to deprive an otherwise-capable parent of access to their children deserves a death that violates the entire Bill of Rights, and maybe the ISIS Constitution too.
The English language has no word dark and vile enough to describe my hatred for such people.
