"We're not into case fixing...I can assure you that we have absolutely no knowledge, so there. Where was I..."
Jane*, a mother of three had corresponded over the years as other mothers have providing a horrific account of her story. Leaving a violent paranoid schitzophrenic after the violence spilled out upon the children should have ended when she left. "All I ever asked for was supervised contact, but they kept claiming that I was trying to get no contact at all", Jane provided the author correspondence confirming this was the case.
A man who had been evidentially violent and homicidal was allowed unsupervised access to the children and provided with their home address where he openly stalked and harrassed her at her home.
Despite contact with various legal advisers, officials and child protection, she was diverted back to the court that failed to protect the children. Of course, there are many cases like these that are still being endured in silence, but what stands out is how a psychiatrists report claiming that he is suddenly cured of paranoid schitzophrenia, just in time for the court case. The most interesting recommendation from the psychiatrist whom had not met the child at all was, "for the wellbeing of the father". Despite an affidavit by the father raising concerns about the childs writing interpreted as a "secret code" to the mothers phone number, he is considered well enough to care fulltime on half the medication he was on previously.
"One has to wonder..whatever motivated them to act, was not in consideration of the child".
If there was any other motivator above political or idealogical, it has to be money and in *Janes case, money it was. Googling her judges name one day, she found a document from the vicbar. "I heard rumors that the entire bar was corrupt, but I simply put it down to a rumor".
Camoflaged in plain language, without its commentators conclusion, the reference to the judge could have been easily undone. Its the fact that he defined his reference further to interpretation, denying unconvincingly that Federal Magistrate Norah Hartnett is "Not into case fixing", he needed to assure that they had no knowledge of a well defined description on how "case fixing" works. "It explains why the judge told me one day that she read everything she needed to read(referring to his affidavit), she didn't need to read anything else".
