Florida Judge Sanctioned, Ordered to Take Anger Management Classes After Jailing Abuse Victim 

Welcome to Big Time Small-Time Dicks, a regular column on The Slot that explores local politicians, small-town scandals, and everything else making life miserable on a local level. Know a small time person who is a big time dick we should feature? Email us.

A Florida judge who jailed a crying survivor of domestic abuse is being sanctioned by the state Supreme Court. Seminole County Judge Jerri Collins jailed the woman for three days last summer after brutally berating her in court, telling her, “You think you’re going to have anxiety now? You haven’t even seen anxiety.”

Collins jailed the woman for contempt after she failed to appear to testify against her attacker, the father of the woman’s one-year-old child. The woman told police that the man choked her, threatened her with a knife and ground his thumbs into her eyes. But the woman didn’t appear in court to testify; when compelled to appear, Collins berated her at length:

The Grim Truth About MN Chief Justice Lorie Skjerven Gildea

http://carvercountycorruption.com/2012/09/06/chief-justice-lorie-skjerven-gildea-up-for-re-election/

VOTE DAN GRIFFITH FOR MN SUPREME COURT

Chief Justice Lorie Skjerven Gildea is up for re-election this November 6th in Minnesota. Lorie Gildea received Banken mother’s  Writ of Prohibition (an emergency appeal) last August 2011. Gildea signed the paper denying Lea`s emergency appeal stating Lea had a remedy; a regular appeal that would take up to a year and thousands of dollars, of which time Lea would have no contact with her three young children. Lea filed her regular appeal and it has now been over a year since she has seen her children ages 2, 6 and 8. Lea`s case is still in appeal, no decision has been made.

Carver County`s Senator Juliane Ortman sent a letter to Chief Justice Lorie Gildea asking for an immediate investigation into Carver County Family Court practices back in April 2012. Link: ORTMAN LETTER Senator Ortman has been approached for years by citizens in Carver County about numerous family court horror stories where mothers lose custody of their children to wealthy ex-spouses with a history of abuse convictions. It is a pattern in this county no one can deny. Senator Ortman and Lea Dannewitz (previously known as Lea Banken) were interviewed by KARE 11 after the Ortman letter went out. Lorie Gildea got wind of the coverage by KARE 11 and sent a letter back to Senator Ortman immediately stating a full refusal to conduct an investigation. KARE 11 stopped the airing of the investigation for reasons unknown.

Lorie Gildea (incumbent) is up for re-election this November 6th. Gildea was appointed into office, not elected. Gildea is not a mother herself and is fully aware of the corruption in Minnesota`s judicial system. Gildea has allowed this corruption to continue. As a result hundreds of Minnesota parents, children and citizens suffer daily.

Every ballot in Minnesota this November will have a judicial section. Lorie Gildea`s opponent is Dan Griffith. Dan Griffith`s quest is to bring accountability back to the judicial system and ensure judges abide by laws and statutes that are enacted by the legislature and approved by the Governor. Currently, judges do not have to abide by the law – there is no remedy to hold them accountable.We have many readers contacting us and asking what they can do to help. Answer: get out to vote this November 6th. Vote Dan Griffith for Minnesota Supreme Court Justice and help us bring change to a very broken court system in Minnesota.


Minnesota Supreme Court race

As featured in JP Election Brief: The Supreme Court Special on October 18, 2012.

This year, there are three Minnesota Supreme Court seats up for election: Place 1, Place 4, and the Chief Justice seat. Only 2 of the 3 Supreme Court races were considered in the primary, the Chief Justice and Place 4 seats. In those races, three candidates competed for each seat and the two candidates receiving the most votes proceeded to the general election. In both of the primary races, the incumbent was successful.

In the race for the Chief Justice position, incumbent Justice Lorie Gildea and challenger Dan Griffith won the highest vote percentages and will compete against one another in the general election. In the race for Place 4, incumbent Justice David Stras and Tim Tingelstad will face one another in the general election.

Both incumbents received higher vote percentages in the primaries than their closest competitor. In their respective races, Gildea received approximately 50% of the vote to Griffith’s 29%, while Stras received approximately 49% of the votes to Tingelstad’s 29%, making it very likely that both incumbents will be re-elected.

Place 1 was not contested in the primary, but will see incumbent Barry Anderson compete against challenger Dean Barkley in the general election. Barkley previously served as a lobbyist and campaign manager for former governor Jesse Ventura and is a member of the Independence Party.

In all likelihood, all incumbents will be re-elected to their seats, maintaining the current state of the Minnesota Supreme Court.

Gee ya think?!!

Are There Any Institutions We Can Trust?

“These crimes were unimaginable, and that they could’ve been countenanced and enabled by such an iconic institution, it gave us so much energy to pursue the story and get the story and make it public.” ~Walter Robinson, NPR, October 2015

“Spotlight” Movie Review

ID-10093828

Image by Stuart Miles @ FreeDigitalPhotos.net

I recently went to the film “Spotlight” which portrays the Boston Globe’s investigation and coverage of the Catholic Church sex abuse scandal. Their reporting and revelations won them the 2003 Pulitzer Prize and prompted admissions of similar abuse from victims around the world.

I assumed that this film wouldn’t get a lot of publicity as it exposes the cover-up of the pedophile priests by the court system, attorneys, media execs and the church; however, it just got 6 Oscar nominations.

Of course I had to research further to figure out the agenda behind wanting this movie to be seen by mainstream audiences.

What I discovered is that ‘Spotlight’ is more than likely being used as a propaganda piece to condition Americans into believing that the scandal is fully in the past and to forget the gravity of the Vatican crimes against humanity. The film shifts the focus away from the church and onto the feel good determination and heroism of the Boston Globe’s investigative journalists.

Many people are still in the dark that mainstream media is often biased and misleading and is used to influence the population toward an agenda set by “The Powers that Be”.

6 Corporations control 90% Of The Media in North America. It’s also rumored that the Vatican owns all news networks.

Another interesting find:
blockquotes-1The mainstream media won't tell you this, but the Boston Globe's reporting routinely 
minimized the critical role that secular psychologists played in the entire Catholic Church abuse
scandal. Time after time, trained "expert" psychologists around the country repeatedly insisted
to Church leaders that abusive priests were fit to return to ministry after receiving "treatment"under  their care. 

Indeed, one of the leading experts in the country recommended to the Archdiocese of Boston in 
both 1989 and 1990 that – despite Geoghan's two-decade record of abuse – it was both "reasonable and    therapeutic" to return Geoghan to active pastoral ministry including work "with children".

This is much like the Family Court System which is designed to cover-up domestic violence and child abuse by changing the language, “It’s just a divorce and custody dispute” vs.”domestic violence and abuse”, which in the past would have been addressed in the criminal courts. In this system, parents are forced to work it out by bringing the mental health component into the court system via custody evaluators, parenting consultants, guardians-ad-litem, supervised visitation, foster care, and reunification therapy to name just a few. How is someone supposed figure out how to parent with someone that’s assaulting them? This is about control and profit by forcing consumption of therapeutic services designed to keep families stuck in the procedural confusion of the courts, while funneling private and tax payer dollars through court connected programs and corporate-collaborator government officials.

Excerpts from: Before It’s News “The 3 City States that Control the Whole World”  

City of London – FINANCE                    Vatican City – RELIGION                                 Washington DC – MILITARY

The flag in Washington’s District of Columbia has 3 red stars, each symbolizing a city state within the three city empire. The three city empire consists of Washington D.C., London, and Vatican City. London is the corporate center of the three city states and controls the world economically. Washington’s District of Columbia city state is in charge of the military, and the Vatican offers spiritual guidance. The constitution of the district of Columbia operates under a tyrannical roman law known as lex fori, which in no way resembles the U.S. constitution.

The three sovereign, corporate “city states” are not part of the countries they are located in. They have their own laws, and identities, as indicated by their respective flags that clearly control the whole world.

Quotes from “Spotlight”

Michael Rezendes: This is not just Boston. This is the whole country, the whole world. They knew and they let it happen! It could’ve been you, it could’ve been me, it could’ve been any of us.

Marty Baron: The Boston priests molested kids in six different parishes over the last 30 years. The church found out about it and did nothing. 

Mitchell Garabedian: So, I pull out the 14 most-damning docs and I attach them to my motion and they prove everything, everything, about the church, about the bishops, about law.

Michael Rezendez: And it’s all public cause your motion to oppose Rogers motion is public.

Mitchell Garabedian: Yeah, exactly, now you’re paying attention.

Michael RezendesSo I could just walk into that courthouse right now and get those documents?
Mitchell Garabedian: No, you cannot, because the documents are not there.
Michael Rezendes: But you just said they’re public.
Mitchell Garabedian: I know I did but this is Boston and the church does not want them to be found so they are not there.
Michael Rezendes: Mitch, are you telling me that the Catholic Church removed legal documents from that courthouse?

Mitchell Garabedian: Look, I’m not crazy. I’m not paranoid. I’m experienced. Check the docket. You’ll see. They control everything.

 

Walter ‘Robby Robinson: We got two stories here: a story about degenerate clergy, and a story about a bunch

of lawyers turning child abuse into a cottage industry. Which story do you want us to write? Because we’re writing one of them.

 

 Mitchell Garabedian: “If it take a village to raise a child, it takes a village to abuse them.”

Former St. Paul archbishop Nienstedt resigns Michigan post

Former Twin Cities archbishop’s arrival drew strong protests.
 By Star Tribune

Former St. Paul and Minneapolis Archbishop John Nienstedt quit a temporary post at a Michigan church Thursday, following a wave of protests from Catholic parents and abuse victim advocates.

Michigan residents opposing Nienstedt’s Jan. 6 assignment at St. Philip Catholic Church had bombarded their diocese and the media, and even pulled tuition support for a Catholic school associated with the church.

“I was surprised it took an outcry for them [church leaders] to make the right decisions,” said Samantha Pearl, a parent at St. Philip who was an outspoken critic of Nienstedt’s move to her parish. “I’m relieved.”

Advocates for clergy abuse victims also were taken aback by the swift departure of St. Paul’s former archbishop, who was scheduled to help out at the Battle Creek church for six months.

“This is a first in my lifetime: A grass-roots effort drove this man out of town,” said Bill McAlary, a Michigan leader of Survivors Network of Those Abused by Priests (SNAP). “It shows that if the people take action, we can clean up this mess.”

The bottom line is that there are still many people that are resistant to the higher truth that our institutions have been hijacked by fundamentally immoral thugs! People don’t want to admit that there is a systemic abuse of entrusted power for private gain and that our government does not keep us safe. This denial is how entire communities become complicit in allowing egregious crimes against humanity. When things are not going well, until you get the truth out on the table, no matter how ugly, you are not in a position to deal with it.  Bob Seelert, Chairman of Saatchi & Saatchi Worldwide (New York) 

“One of the saddest lessons of history is this: If we’ve been bamboozled long enough, we tend to reject any evidence of the bamboozle. We’re no longer interested in finding out the truth. The bamboozle has captured us. It’s simply too painful to acknowledge, even to ourselves, that we’ve been taken. Once you give a charlatan power over you, you almost never get it back.”

The “success” of force reunification

Posted on Dec 11, 2015 in Feature, #Believer, The Quincy Solution 

By Hope Loudon, first published in The Huffington Post

This summer, Judge Gorcyca shocked the world when she berated the Tsimhoni children (ages 9, 10, and 14), compared them to the disciples of Charles Manson, and sent them to juvenile detention for refusing to see their father who they claim is abusive. As the public attention span dwindled, Gorcyca placed a gag order on the parties involved and ordered the children to “reunification therapy” using a questionable protocol conducted by an uncertified individual (as I discussed in this article). Media proclaimed that the children were “successfully reunited” with their father, but evidence now exists that shows that nothing could be further from the truth.

According to the redacted exhibits offered to support the recent motions filed by the mother, Maya Tsimhoni, the children were severely distraught when taken to fulfill the “reunification therapy” protocol. When informed that their father was there to meet them, their response was “obvious signs of outward emotional distress i.e. crying, dry heaving, balling into the corner etc.” The young daughter was so inconsolable that she was removed from her siblings until she fell asleep on the floor.

TEENS USE CIVIL DISOBEDIENCE

 

[Pictured: Hope and Elizabeth on their way to Michigan (top); Hope and Elizabeth as teens (bottom left); Michigan jailed kids: Roee, Natalie and Liam (bottom right)]

“….When living with [our father] became unbearable, we made the terrifying decision to use civil disobedience and refuse to go with him….We were 14 years old when a police officer led us out of our school in handcuffs….Instead of allowing us to live with our mother full time, police sent us to juvenile detention for being “incorrigible” children….

We passionately resent that the court system forced us to live in a house where we didn’t feel loved and protected. ”
– Elizabeth and Hope Loudon

We were 14 years old when a police officer led us out of our school in handcuffs. We hadn’t committed a crime, and were dedicated students who maintained clean disciplinary records. But we could no longer abide by the shared-custody agreement our parents had signed in their divorce nine years earlier. It mandated we spend half our time with our father, a man we had no relationship with and who largely ignored us except when he wanted something from us. When living with him became unbearable, we made the terrifying decision to use civil disobedience and refuse to go with him.

A Michigan judge imposed the same injustice on three siblings last month. Judge Lisa Gorcyca sentenced the Tsimhoni children — ages 9, 10 and 14 — to juvenile detention for refusing to meet with their father, drawing international attention. Gorcyca dismissed the children’s claims of abuse and insisted that their father, Omer Tsimhoni, is “a good man.” She sent them to Children’s Village before relenting to public outrage and moving them to a summer camp after more than two weeks.

In too many parental custody and visitation disputes, adults belittle children’s attempts to escape homes where they feel mistreated. Our father seemed to derive pleasure from controlling us and crushing our spirits. But like Gorcyca, a school administrator told us our father was “loving” and insisted that cutting him off would amount to throwing our lives away. Our friends’ parents were sympathetic, but believed what happened in our home was family business. Instead of allowing us to live with our mother full time, police sent us to juvenile detention for being “incorrigible” children.

Judge Gorcyca justified her action by saying the siblings’ mother brainwashed them to hate their father. She told the children, “one day you are going to realize what’s going on in this case and you’re going to apologize to your dad.” But as 22-year-olds who were once in the Tsimhoni children’s position, we’re still not apologizing.

We begged our father to release us to our mother full time on several occasions, but he dismissed our pleas. Our mom couldn’t afford a legal battle to change the custody agreement, and we believed the effort would be futile anyway.

…When we entered high school, we hoped the court would believe we were old enough to decide to live with our mother. When our father arrived to pick us up from school one day, we refused to go. We called for the school police officer, foolishly believing he and a school administrator would protect us. We were wrong. They scorned us for the way we were treating our “loving father” who “just wanted to make things better.” Instead of allowing us to leave with our mother, the police officer gave us a choice: Go with our father or be arrested. We chose the latter.

We were frisked, cuffed, and led through the halls of our high school to a police car.

….At the juvenile facility where we were taken, authorities bullied us just as Judge Gorcyca bullied the Tsimhoni children. We were held as voluntary walk-ins, but were free to walk out only into our father’s hands until we turned 18 or a judge ordered otherwise.

The detention facility staff did everything possible to break us down, adding to the trauma we had experienced from our father. We were not allowed to touch each other, even to hold hands in prayer. If we spoke too loudly, the staff yelled at us; if we spoke too softly, they forbade us from speaking at all.

It was a dehumanizing experience, but still less frightening than returning to our father. So we tried to make peace with our new reality.

It was dinner time on our third day in detention when our mom arrived with a court order for our release. The judge gave her temporary physical custody and required a psychological evaluation of us. The evaluator determined it was better for us to live with our mom than in a jail facility.

…We passionately resent that the court system forced us to live in a house where we didn’t feel loved and protected. Over time, the law has decided that people are not property, unless they are children. An adult cannot incarcerate his “defiant” employees, parents, or romantic partner, but the law will readily incarcerate his children for him. If the court protected us as it protects adults, we would have had much healthier and happier childhoods.

Like the judge in Omer Tsimhoni’s case, our father invoked the concept of “parental alienation syndrome” to discredit our charges of mistreatment. It’s a claim parents in custody battles often exploit to accuse their ex-spouses of brainwashing their children to turn against them, convincing mediators that the children have been coached to lie. As a result, bad parenting and abuse go uninvestigated and children are returned to violent and emotionally damaging homes. In extreme cases, the child or the protective parent is incarcerated for refusing to obey the court’s custody or visitation order.

…From experience, we know that the decision to use civil disobedience to escape a parent is made not on a childish whim, but in genuine desperation. What we, and the Tsimhonis, were saying was: “Being with our father is so unbearable that we would rather risk imprisonment than associate with him. Let us live with our mom.” It’s a message that our justice system should not ignore.

TRUTH IS TRUTH

12-15-2015: As we were researching.Caroline Rice’s case, we came across some corrections that need to be made. Jo-Anne Young, identified as a member of the jury, was Caroline’s father’s physician and not Brent Rice’s father’s physician as indicated  on the Carver Co. blog. Ms. Young’s address was also incorrect as her address was St. Paul and not Victoria, MN.

Also, Caroline Rice’s parents were present and names were listed as witnesses.


 

One of the issues with blogging is that when you pump out new content, old content gets pushed aside. The Carver County Corruption blog writers have devoted hundreds of hours to exposing corruption in the MN courts. Information from this site provides not only a historical perspective, but content is still relevant today as we continue to fight this battle.

Below is a post regarding one of the many ways to rig a case.

Carver County Corruption

State vs. Caroline Rice, Jury Members | Carver County Corruption

Posted on February 7, 2012

Some of you may recall the trial of State vs. Caroline Rice held a week prior to Christmas 2011. The shocking jury verdict post was the highest hitting post in the history of the CCC blog.  State vs. Caroline Rice jury verdict  

Some of you may recall during the first days of the trial judge Richard Perkins dismissed the entire first jury. Dismissing a jury is something rarely (if ever) heard of. This was a very bizarre move on the part of judge Richard Perkins. State vs. Caroline Rice, Trial day #2 – dismissal of jury 

During the trial many of the Rice children testified to the horror of physical abuse in their home by their father, Brent Rice. Many of the children also spoke about the pain of losing their mother for many years – for reasons unknown. A few of the Rice children were heard after their testimony stating how embarrassing witnessing was due to the fact they recognized a few of the jury members while they were on the stand giving their testimony. This sparked an investigation into many of the members on the jury.

Four jury members were found to have children who went to the same school as the Rice children. T Rice and L Rice ran in track and other sports with the jury members` kids. This of course humiliated the Rice children as they testified during trial, since they recognized some of the jury members.

Members of the jury were asked questions as to their affiliation with Brent Rice, Caroline Rice, and the Rice children prior to sitting on the jury for over a week… they were asked if they had children that went to the same school as the Rice children, if they worked for or knew Brent Rice or Caroline Rice, if they worked for the county… etc. This is, of course, a very serious crime to lie during jury duty: an aggravated felony.

Member of the jury:

  • Cara Weinzierl: Her daughter attended Holy Family Catholic High School. The same school L and T Rice attended. Her daughter was on the same cross country running team as Rice kids. Weinzierl daughter is the same age as T Rice. Cara Weinzierl lied to stay on the jury claiming she did not have kids that attended Holy Family Catholic School. Cara`s daughter, B Weinzierl, went to prom with T Rice, Caroline Rice`s oldest son.

Young was seen smirking at Caroline Rice during reading of the verdict – while Caroline was cuffed and taken away.

  • Paul Cluff: His daughter is the same age as L Rice. They attended Waconia High School at the same time. His daughter is also Facebook friends with K Rice. Paul`s daughter was on the same track and field team as L Rice. Paul also lied when questioned about where his children attended school.
