California Publisher Assembles Team to Cover Family Court Issues for Boston Globe's Spotlight Fellowship
SPOTLIGHT ON FAMILY COURTS WOULD CHANGE EVERYTHING
In 2002 the Boston Globe changed the world of reporting forever when it defied what many in mainstream media would not do; Exposed the Sex Abuse of Children Locked in the Secrecy and Sanctimony of the Catholic Church, forever changing how the world saw the church and demonstrating the importance of a Free Press.
A California Publisher is hoping the Globe, along with Spotlight Fellowship supporters OpenRoad, FirstLook and Participant Media will defy the status quo once again and wade into the murky waters of America's Modern Family Courts.
The Spotlight Fellowship was started to address issues of public importance. What could be of greater importance than the courts that address deeply personal and emotional issues related to custody, property and income for 50% of married Americans who find themselves in divorce or probate courts?
With permission Q obtained a copy of the redacted proposal letter submitted on behalf of the team anxious to bring family court issues to the greater public's attention. The team includes highly experienced lawyers , custody experts, activists, researchers and investigative reporters, whose names were redacted for privacy and security purposes.
Each year hundreds of thousands of family court victims reach out to reporters in communities across America ,desperately seeking to have their stories told, and hoping the press will provide transparency for family court issues. Shrinking budgets, consolidated news organizations and underfunded reporters have left few qualified members in the press interested in, or able to cover, the deeply personal and messy issues surrounding family court cases.
Public records and media requests related to family law cases are virtually non existent and a lack of transparency has allowed complete system failure in the monopolistic family court environment.
Over the past 10 years family court reform activistists have been forced online to anonymous emails and blogs to address what mainstream media would not. This shift has led to an underground movement intent on exposing the injustices modern courts inflict on innocent citizens.
In 2016 the Boston Globe's staff writers Nestor Ramos and Evan Allen did a remarkable investigative piece tackling some of the complex issues contained in the secrecy of family courts. But it was not enough. The story got over 466,000 Facebook likes and 86 comments, a great feat for print story.
Few other mainstream media outlets will touch family law issues. The San Jose Mercury has an informal policy that it won't cover family law cases, until children are drugged raped and die, or are found to be being drugged while in foster care programs. And judges will not react unless the press keeps a bright light on what the judiciary is doing in family courts.
A Free Press is needed to shine a bright light on the family court issues facing every community across the nation, Some news outlets are trying to cover the issue, but few have the staff or resources to do the hours of research and interviews family court issues demand.
Please join the underground movement to bring these issues to mainstream media- sign the petition to the Boston Globe and email : Caljohnqpublic@gmail.com to join the movement and stop the madness more commonly known as Modern Family Court Justice.

I too have a story to tell. Georgia CPS stole my son and sold him to the highest bidder. Our children are not for sale. This needs to be rectified. Family reunification is not their goal.

Let this exposure be the beginning of the end of the satanic, self-protective institution of pedophilia in every state, in the country, in every area of the known world. Such depravity is of the devil; every decent person has an obligation to oppose the torture, rape and murder of infants and children and deliver the perpetrators of this evil to judgment.

I have 7 grandchildren taken by DCF St. Francis in Wichita Kansas, I am only 1 of thousands of families St Francis has denied visits, contact by phone to children, they are trying to terminate parental rights of father, have filed false aligations again the father, refuse family placement, refused ICPC of relatives. Can't find a lawyer in Kansas that is not afraid of the coruption in DCF and Judges. I will not stop. They put gag orders against parents fighting for the return of their children. The ASFA has made our children a commodity for profit for these CPS/DCF social workers And judges.
Help us fight the injustice

I have a story to tell about a private judge in Orange County who will brow beat multimillion dollar women, when their husbands hire this particular judge with an ensemble of doctors for hire that will commit perjury false report all to intimidate women to agree to what they decide or they will kidnap your children personal property personal belongings and money no matter how long you have been married in California. A judge who will ignore judicial cannons and civil rights

Its happening all over the US CPS taking children unlawfully but being allowed to lie and falsify documents with no consequence. Law states ONLY if theres proof of severe child abuse or neglect not because a worker is on a power trip or claim investigation. They are also taking chikdren based on a parents right to choise medical treatment and all decisions on medical issues. Until the 8.7 billion dollars in funding to promote foster care is changed every child has a price tag. We have rights as parents they are not only being allowed to violate thise rights but also ammendments. Something has to be done.

The Globe will probably not base decisions for fundings upon online support for a project, if they are anything like Frontline, PBS. Subject matter, their perception of public interest, and other factors win funding as well as track record of the director/producers presenting the proposal. Would be a good project for the Globe tho'. Been there, done it, won an Emmy.

I have a story to tell too about how Los Angeles Superior Court issued an order at at 12:01 AM on my daughter's 18th birthday she would become a Probate Court conservatee under the sole control of the father she had herself reported for abusing her (DCFS had investigated and fully substantiated her allegations against her father). At 30 years of age, she remains in the same situation, but now totally brainwashed/Stolkholmed with no education past High School, unable to drive or secure a job other than minimal and infrequent acting jobs. All of the restraints upon her have only served to benefit her father, not her. Imagine your daughter, sister, wife being ordered to live with and under the control of her perpetrator - forever. Gross inhumanity.

They falsify document. Some children do not have any documents, their history is erased and they are being human trafficked from county to county through out their lives

Not only human trafficked, they are put on pyschotropic medication when they are healthy. Their social worker would take the child to a specific doctors and put the child on medication.

This is an organized crime of child trafficking and at times it is child sex trafficking to pedophiles. This operation is taking place through out the United States of America. This is for the sake of profit $$ children are the merchandise.
