This is for all the Protective Mothers with empty arms and hurting hearts who are missing their children every second of every day, but who are deeply hurting tonight , in light of the upcoming Holidays. Know that no matter what, you ARE your children’s mother. No one -and certainly no court- can take away this God-given role in your children’s lives. Please know this in your heart. PMA INTL loves and supports you and your precious children, now and forever.
This songs’ story;
“Mother” is based of Lita Ford’s experience with DV By Proxy, something she dealt with firsthand when she went through her divorce from now ex-husband Jim Gillette. Ford’s has two sons, James (16,) and Rocco 12,) who she has not seen since the divorce, and has told Decibel:
“My kids are with their dad. He brainwashed them and took them from me, telling them, ‘Oh, you don’t want to go with Mommy. Mommy’s bad.’ He put the entire weight of the divorce on my kids, which is the worst thing any parent could do to their child. It’s like losing your child to some sort of freak, like in the mall, or somebody hanging out in bushes or at a bus stop. You hear all these horror stories. Only, I know where they are – that’s the only difference.”
She hopes the track and video will reach her sons, but says:
“He won’t let them hear it. He won’t let them have anything to do with me. He won’t let them look at any photographs. It’s the worst thing that’s ever happened in my life. I wrote this song to tell them how much I love them, that I didn’t mean for this to happen and it’s not my fault. I didn’t do this to them – although they think I did.”

Feds raise new abuse of power allegations against Family Court Judge Steven Jones/ LAS VEGAS REVIEW JOURNAL

LAS VEGAS REVIEW-JOURNAL
New abuse of power allegations tied to embattled Family Court Judge Steven Jones have surfaced in federal court documents.

Federal prosecutors say they have evidence that Jones “used his position and influence” as a judge twice in 2006 to get his former brother-in-law, Thomas Cecrle, released on his own recognizance in a felony bad check case, though local prosecutors had asked that he be kept in jail on no bail.

The Clark County district attorney’s office ultimately dismissed the bad check case against Cecrle and referred it to Las Vegas police for further investigation, but records do not show what happened to that investigation, First Assistant U.S. Attorney Steven Myhre said in the court documents.

Freeing Cecrle allowed a decade-long investment fraud scheme involving the judge to move forward, Myhre wrote.

Court records show Cecrle later was convicted in a felony drug case.

Jones, Cecrle and four others were indicted by a Las Vegas federal grand jury in October 2012 in what authorities said was a $3 million scheme between 2002 and 2012. In the indictment, prosecutors alleged Jones used the power of his office to further the investment scheme and intervened on Cecrle’s behalf to prevent or delay legal processes against him.

The new accusations in the federal case are the latest in a long line of misconduct allegations that has plagued Jones for years.

Jones, 56, first elected to the Family Court bench in 1992, was suspended with pay by the Nevada Supreme Court after his federal indictment. In February, the Nevada Commission on Judicial Discipline suspended Jones for three months without pay after finding that he had violated professional rules of conduct by carrying on a romantic relationship in 2011 with a prosecutor who appeared before him.

The prosecutor, Lisa Willardson, died of a drug overdose in December. Jones, who told police he had planned to marry Willardson, discovered her body in a bathroom at her Henderson home but waited 35 minutes before calling 911. Henderson police closed the case after the coroner concluded Willardson’s death was accidental.

Last month, the judicial commission said it was moving forward with another complaint, alleging Jones was involved in several investment schemes, associated with felons, improperly handled drug evidence and once had an “intimate relationship” with a law student who worked for him.

Prosecutors detailed the new abuse of power allegations against Jones in a motion late last week asking for a hearing to determine whether the judge’s defense lawyer, Robert Draskovich, should be removed from the federal case because of a possible conflict of interest. Draskovich, a veteran defense lawyer, represented Cecrle in the bad check case.

Myhre suggested in a March 27 letter to Draskovich that the lawyer probably will be a prosecution witness in the federal case against Jones and Cecrle.

“For example, you may have received instructions from Jones regarding your representation of Cecrle, learned of Jones’ role in the release of Cecrle, represented Cecrle at the behest of Jones or obtained proceeds of the fraudulent scheme in the course of any payment of fees,” Myhre wrote.

“At a minimum, the government will seek to question you in regard to your knowledge of Jones’ involvement in the state charges against Cecrle and obtain your billing and payment records in connection with your representation of Cecrle.”

Draskovich said he plans to respond to Myhre’s motion.

“There’s been no wrongdoing and no inappropriate conduct on my part,” he said.

Draskovich also said he wasn’t aware of any misconduct by Jones in the Cecrle case.

It’s common for people charged in bad check cases to be released on their own recognizance, Draskovich said. And cases often are dismissed after the defendants pay back the money.

It is uncertain whether the government’s filing will lead to another delay in the federal case, which is supposed to go to trial in June.

In his court papers, Myhre said the bad check case against Cecrle was filed in 2005 after a man he identified as E. A. complained to the district attorney’s office that Cecrle defrauded him while soliciting money in an investment scheme. Several checks Cecrle wrote to the man had bounced.

The man, who had met with both Cecrle and Jones, was identified as Ely Ades in the 12-count complaint prosecutors filed in Las Vegas Justice Court. The complaint alleged Cecrle defrauded Ades out of $58,260.

Justice Court records show that after Cecrle’s first arrest in the case in March 2006, then-Las Vegas Justice of the Peace Tony Abbatangelo released him on his own recognizance.

Cecrle was arrested again a month later in April, and this time then-Las Vegas Justice of the Peace James Bixler set him free.

The case was ultimately dismissed in January 2007 by then-Justice of the Peace Doug Smith.

Both Smith and Bixler are now district judges. Abbatangelo lost his re-election bid in 2010, and in 2011 he agreed not to run for a judicial office for four years under a disciplinary agreement with the judicial commission stemming from a no contest plea in a misdemeanor domestic battery case.

The prosecutor in the bad check case, Chief Deputy District Attorney Bernie Zadrowski, said that in both of Cecrle’s releases, the judges did not inform him ahead of time that they were taking the action.

“Had I known about it, I would have objected to it,” he said. “I think it was inappropriate.”

“Never Give Up”
Visions that can change the world trapped inside an ordinary girl
She looks just like me too afraid to dream out loud
And though it’s simple your idea, it won’t make sense to everybody
You need courage now If you’re gonna persevere
To fulfill divine purpose, you gotta answer when you’re called
So don’t be afraid to face the world against all odds
[Chorus]
Keep the dream alive don’t let it die
If something deep inside keeps inspiring you to try, don’t stop
And never give up, don’t ever give up on you
Don’t give up
Every victory comes in time, work today to change tomorrow
It gets easier, who’s to say that you can’t fly
Every step you take you get, closer to your destination
You can feel it now, don’t you know you’re almost there?
To fulfill divine purpose, you gotta answer when you’re called
So don’t be afraid to face the world against all odds
[Chorus]
Keep the dream alive don’t let it die
If something deep inside keeps inspiring you to try, don’t stop
And never give up, don’t ever give up on you
[Bridge:]
Who holds the pieces to complete the puzzle?
The answer that can solve a mystery
The key that can unlock your understanding
It’s all inside of you, you have everything you need yeahhhh
Sooooo, keep the dream alive don’t let it die
If something deep inside, keeps inspiring you to try don’t stop
And never give up, don’t ever give up on you
Sometimes life can place a stumbling block in your way
But you’re gotta keep the faith, bring what’s deep inside your heart yeah your
Heart to the light
And never give up Don’t ever give up on you
Nooo don’t give up,
No, no, no, no don’t give up
Oh, no, no, no, no don’t…give…up

BREAKING NEWS: Judge Hands Massachusetts PERMANENT Custody of Justina Pelletie

During the past few weeks the state of Massachusetts signaled a willingness to award temporary custody of Justina Pelletier to her parents so she could be transferred back to her home state of Connecticut. This is critically important not just because she belongs with her family and is being held captive against their will, but also so she can obtain medical care needed to improve her deteriorating health.
Unfortunately, a judge has ruled against Justina’s freedom and will continue controlling her life indefinitely.

A video of Melbourne construction workers shouting encouraging catcalls to unsuspecting women in a hilarious social experiment is being watched around the world.

The stereotype of notorious catcalls from labourers is turned on its head by two rough tradies at the construction site, who yell compliments to women walking by.
“Oi, that colour really works on you. Have a productive day,” the tradies yell at one pedestrian.
“I’d like to show you … the respect you deserve,” another shouts.
“I appreciate your appearance is just one aspect of who you are.”
The targets of the unexpected compliments are shown turning from shock to surprise in the video that has already been watched more than 50,000 times and has been shown on US breakfast television since it was uploaded online this week.

PMA International is an advocacy organization. WE DO NOT GET INVOLVED IN PERSONAL CUSTODY CASES and cannot give out legal advice, as we are not attorneys. Due to the sensitive nature of the work that we do, PMA has a professional security team and a small group of attorney’s who protect our organization and our protective mothers/advocates.

PMA International is an advocacy organization, NOT a service organization for protective mothers, at this time. Since we are not a service organization, we do not offer on site, local protective mothers’ support groups, but suggest moms research low cost professional counselors in their area or specialists in PTSD or DV counseling. In our experience, protective mothers have better results turning to professionals, educated and licensed in this specialty, for healing as opposed to fellow protective mothers who are equally in need of healing and support.

In light of the fact that we are not a service organization-for security reason and per their request- we DO NOT direct people who contact us,to our state or international leaders as they are not set up to work with other protective moms by getting involved in their personal cases.( Please refer to our mission statement). Our
leaders, go through an extensive security check by our security team. Please note; the safety of PMA International’s protective mother/advocates and their children is our priority.
