Because seeing your dad HIT YOUR MOTHER is no reason not to have lunch with him.


Siblings thrown in juvie hall for refusing to see dad

Pontiac An Oakland County judge who sent three children to a juvenile detention facility for failing to maintain a "healthy relationship" with their father calls the case one of the worst examples of parental alienation she's ever seen, according to court records.

Judge Lisa Gorcyca ordered the children ages 9, 10 and 15 to Children's Village on June 24 for civil contempt of court after they refused to have lunch with or talk to their father. The children's parents have been involved in a contentious divorce dispute since 2009.


The children a 15-year-old boy, a 10-year-old boy and a 9-year-old girl are permitted visits with their father and attorney while at Children's Village, but not with their mother or her side of the family. The order states "the siblings are to be kept away from each other as much as possible."


According to the court transcript, the 15-year-old apologized to Gorcyca but said he was not going to apologize to his father because he had done nothing wrong. He also alleged his father was violent and said he had seen him hit his mother, "so I'm not going to talk to him." Gorcyca reminded the boy that his father had never been charged with any offenses and that he loved his children and wanted to spend time with them.

According to the story, the CHILDREN are represented by attorneys (court appointed) who did NOT object and in my opinion need to be fired.

The judge is an idiot who apparently doesn't understand how victims of abuse can be angry.

After all, it is just their MOTHER. He loves them, so what's the problem?

Almost told an alerter to perform obscene acts on himself.

I was more offended by the alert than the post being alerted on.

Kept my cool, and hoping for a 0-7 keep it.

Jury duty.
