Yeah, so what, you might say. There are thousands of women sitting in jail, not being able to see their children on Mother's Day.
But, there is lots more to this story, the woman is 7 months pregnant, abused by her ex-husband, there is evidence that her children were sexually abused by the ex-husband, and the judge, in all his infinite stupidity awarded custody of the children and granted permission to the ex to move the children to Texas. Trish has all the goods here, here, here, here, and the body and link to a petition to free the abused, pregnant woman, Genia Shockome here.
Additionally, the judge, NY Family Court Judge Damien J. Amodeo, admits that it was HE, not the ex-husband,
that prompted the induced the post-traumatic stress disorder and panic attacks that Genia suffers from. Amodeo made this claim to justify his determination that Genia falsely claimed that her husband's abuse had caused her to develop PTSD falsely (which is estimated to develop in around 75% of battered wives).
Furthermore, Shockome is sitting in jail, for nothing more than strenuously objecting to this abusive judge. What a fucking charmer this judge is.
Go sign the petition so this woman can be freed and have her children returned to her, and most importantly, remove an abusive judge from the bench.
