The stunning and disturbing interview with Barry Goldstein and Stacy Lynne is now posted. Please share with your networks and with any ‘protective’ mothers whose legal rights to custody are being violated by the justice system. According to Goldstein “Nationally 58,000 children are sent for custody or unprotected visitation with dangerous abusers annually, and in a two year period starting in 2009 fathers involved in contested custody cases murdered 175 children often with the unwitting assistance of the courts.”

Custody Visitation Scandal Cases
by Barry Goldstein Esq.
The movement to end domestic violence started when women began to speak to each other about their experiences of spousal abuse, which had always been considered a private matter. These discussions led to the realization that domestic violence was far more common then generally believed. This discovery was necessary in order to begin the work to end domestic violence.
Today, disturbingly, in thousands of custody-visitation cases all over the country, abused women and children are being revictimized rather than protected. Some of the cases have been publicized, but most have been hidden from public view. Often the media is reluctant to feature such cases, because they don’t have the resources to determine which side is telling the truth or out of fear of lawsuits. As a result, only the victims and genuine experts are aware of the pattern and frequency of such cases.
When women first started to learn about the extent to which men were abusing their female partners, there was no term to describe such behavior. Only later was the term domestic violence invented. This was an important step, because it gave us common language to describe an all too common and harmful behavior pattern. I believe we now need a term that describes cases in which women and children are further abused by the courts instead of being protected. I suggest using the term CUSTODY-VISITATION SCANDAL CASES, which would help us to better detect and understand the pattern and frequency of such atrocities, so that we can stop such abuse in the future.
Stacy Lynne, Fort Collins, is an investigative journalist with a passion for small business. She developed strong relationships with many small business owners using her skills to assist them. While investigating local policies that were detrimental to small businesses Stacy stumbled upon the Agenda 21 spawned International Council for Local Environmental Initiatives (ICLEI). She discovered that United Nations Policies were being implemented that were onerous to small business.
She began doing presentations regarding ICLEI in cities and towns all across Colorado, and the United States as well as writing articles for organizations such as Freedom Advocates.
In late 2010 Stacy’s son’s father reappeared in Larimer County after 14 months of being absent. He began proceedings in 2011 in an attempt to gain custody of their 8 year old son, who had never even so much as spent the night with his father.
Unable to retain an attorney in Larimer County Stacy represented herself in Family Court. In December of 2011 the Judge inexplicably removed Jaden from Stacy’s custody through permanent orders even though Stacy had never been accused of anything other than being an exemplary mother. These orders were not served on Stacy yet she was arrested on December 21, 2011 and her get out of jail card was Jaden. A sophisticated Tracking Device was illegally placed on her vehicle around this time.
After she finally read the Permanent Orders Stacy set about to do everything demanded of her while the father continued to thumb his nose at the Court disobeying the orders repeatedly. But instead of finding the biological father in contempt the Judge changed the orders, denying Stacy any visitation with her son until she submitted to “Therapeutic Visitation” to the tune of $900 total.
