Amber Huggins, Lauren McConniel’s mother, spent six months trying to find daughters

MUNCIE — The biological mother of Lauren McConniel says she lost custody of the girl because she couldn’t afford an attorney.

She also says she pleaded unsuccessfully with the girl’s father and stepmother — via e-mail — to tell her where they were living in the months before Lauren’s death.

"I was kept from my daughter for six months," said Amber Huggins, a Marion native now living in Knoxville, Tenn. "I looked everywhere for them (Lauren and her 9-year-old sister) for six months."

Five-year-old Lauren’s father, Ryan McConniel, and stepmother, Brittany McConniel, have been charged with felony neglect of a dependent resulting in Lauren’s death on March 9.

Amber and Ryan’s divorce decree in White County, Ark., granted Ryan custody of both girls in 2007.

"I did not have the financial resources to have an attorney," Amber said this week in a telephone interview. "Ryan had an attorney and I did not. There was no other reason he got custody. I was not an unfit mother. I never hurt my children."

Ryan kept the older daughter, but let Amber have Lauren starting at Christmas of 2008 after Amber filed a complaint of child abuse.

"She had bruises on her," Amber said. "I asked her what happened and she said she didn’t know. I took pictures of the bruises but they were old and not good quality pictures. Child protective services in White County said it was not enough."

Amber had Lauren until August 2009 when Ryan took her back. He gave Knoxville police an address in Winchester where he said he would be living.

But Amber later traveled to Winchester, and, accompanied by the police, went to the address Ryan had provided to Knoxville police.

Nobody had lived at the address in a long time.

"I sent numerous e-mails begging them to give me their address," Amber said. "I was told they were living in Winchester. I heard they were living in Farmland. I heard Fort Wayne. I heard Muncie. I heard everything."

Amber said Ryan and Brittany responded by e-mail that she could see the girls when they got old enough to decide for themselves if they wanted to see her.

Child watches helplessly as man rapes mother

Indianapolis, IN – Police are searching for a rapist who attacked a woman inside her home. They say the victim’s young child became a witness to the crime. It is a crime unsettling to even the most veteran of officers.

"It is rather disturbing on a number of levels," said IMPD Sgt. Linda Jackson.

Early Wednesday morning in the 1000 block of West 33rd, police say a young mother was raped in front of her own son.

"I heard him screaming," said one neighbor.

Neighbors say they heard some type of commotion, but thought nothing of it, until now.

"It’s just sad ’cause she ain’t even been there a week. She ain’t even been there a good week," said neighbor Lisa Coleman.

"To know that it’s right across the street – could’ve been us – ’cause we were sitting here watching TV. This window was open," said neighbor Carmella Johnson.

In fact, the victim told police the suspect likely gained entrance through an open bedroom window. She was with her child on the couch in the living room when she says a masked man came in with a knife and threatened to cut her if she didn’t take her clothes off. As the rape occurred, police say, the suspect yelled at her son to shut up.

"During the course of the crime the suspect yelled at the child to be quiet to quit crying, when obviously the child was upset. There was something really bad going on in the house," said Sgt. Jackson.

"I can’t imagine," said Coleman.

On a street full of young children, it’s enough to startle already anxious neighbors who are currently reconsidering their decision to live here.

The victim told police the suspect took her cell phone as he left. She waited 24 hours to report the crime to police. The suspect’s description is vague, as he was wearing a mask.

William Tate Jr.

Town of Amenia resident William Tate Jr. faces a minimum of 30 years in prison in the brutal sexual abuse and murder of his 3 1/2-month-old daughter.

Standing before a judge in the Dutchess County Courthouse on Thursday afternoon, the 29-year-old Tate acknowledged he caused the death of his daughter, Reese Tate, by sexually abusing her and inflicting head injuries. The baby was fatally injured at the family’s home on Willow Lane in Wassaic on the night of Feb. 3. She was pronounced dead early on Feb. 4 at Sharon (Conn.) Hospital.

Tate entered guilty pleas to second-degree murder and aggravated sexual abuse. He will be sentenced to 25 years to life in prison, the maximum penalty allowed by law for second-degree murder, and an additional five years in prison on the sexual abuse charge. Judge Thomas J. Dolan set sentencing for June 25.

"Were you aware that acting in that manner with that child was likely to cause serious physical injury or death?" Dolan asked Tate during the 15-minute proceeding in the third-floor courtroom .

"Yes," Tate replied.

"And I take it you would also agree that a 3-month-old child, an infant, was particularly vulnerable to being manhandled in the manner you described?" the judged asked.

"Yes," Tate said.

Speaking in a flat monotone, Tate began his account of the crimes by telling the judge he had been bouncing the baby on his knee and that he had squeezed her and she struck her head on his knee.

This prompted Senior Assistant District Attorney Marjorie Smith to interrupt the proceedings.

"May I read a list of (the baby’s) injuries?" Smith asked Dolan.

The prosecutor then read from court documents prepared by the grand jury that indicted Tate for the crimes. Those injuries included brain swelling, broken ribs, lung congestion, anal tearing and the ripping of her bowel from her intestines, resulting in peritonitis.

The infant died as a result of "blunt impact to the head and thrusting injuries to the abdomen and stomach," according to the indictment.

Smith, an assistant district attorney for nearly 30 years, called the crime the worst she had ever prosecuted, describing it as "beyond horrific.

Smith, an assistant district attorney for nearly 30 years, called the crime the worst she had ever prosecuted, describing it as "beyond horrific.

"I don’t know of a person involved, from the police to the lab people to the people in the Connecticut Medical Examiner’s Office to the grand jurors, who were not profoundly affected by the horror of what the last few moments of this little girl’s life must have been like," the prosecutor said.

Smith said she was grateful Tate’s decision to admit the crimes had spared the family the ordeal of testifying at a trial.

"The family is now relieved of having to come forward and testifying, but I know they all would have done it," Smith said, referring to Tate’s wife, her parents and his parents.

She said all the family members "had been profoundly grieving from the day of the crime to this day."

"This was a beautiful little girl who was very loved," she said.

Smith praised Rochelle McDonough of the Crime Victims Assistance Bureau for comforting the family and cited Dutchess County sheriff’s deputies for the work they had done gathering the evidence leading to Tate’s guilty pleas.

"They all did a thorough job under extraordinarily difficult and emotional circumstances," she said.

Tate will not be eligible for parole until 2040. If he is ever paroled, he must undergo an additional 20 years of post-release supervision, meaning that if he violates any of the terms of his release, he will be sent back to prison.

part two of The Ever Expanding Parental Alienation Theory: Amy J. Baker’s Research Revisited

Amy J. Baker got some publicity in a March 2008 with David Van Nuys, Ph.D. The following excerpts come from the transcript from the Wise Counsel interview (emphasis mine):

Amy: We only consider PAS when there is no other reason. In other words,if a parent is abusive or neglectful or moves away or is a poor parent in some ways that results in the child saying, "You know Dad (or Mom), I really need to step back from this relationship", that’s not PAS. It’s only PAS when the child is being manipulated by one parent to reject the other parent in the absence of a good reason for rejecting that parent.

Wait a minute, that’s not what Baker said in her study! The interviewer should have asked her how can she tell if the parent is abusive or neglectful if he/she is the target parent who is reporting the alienation. What motivation does this person have to tell the truth? On the other hand, considering PAS "when there is no other reason" or "in the absence of a good reason" is not evidence that itexists. This is not scientific. (Think of it this way: you report to the doctor with severe headaches with blurred vision and nausea. The doctor tells you that you it isn’t a migraine, you don’t have allergies or sinus problems, and your vision seems fine. So, you must have a brain tumor. Let’s operate!)

Amy: The DSM is going through another round of revisions, I think it’s due out at some time in 2012 or something and at that point, PAS may be included. It really depends on how much empirical research and the lobbying and behind the scenes sort of pressures to include it and not include it that are going on.

So, the DSM is about politics, not scientific evidence? The interviewer should have asked her what parental alienation empirical research looks like.

Amy: It’s 100 percent on research and theory. I’m actually not a clinician…

I only do research and the book is based primarily on interviews, in depth interviews with 40 adults who believe that when they were children they were turned against one parent by the other parent and then I used those case studies to explicate various aspects of PAS theory that I’m interested in writing about. The book is solely based on that. I don’t have a clinical practice.

Hmmm. So Baker has not seen clinical evidence of parental alienation. Her method is word of mouth. Let’s do a recap of the subjects she interviewed:

40 people= 25 women, 15 men

age range 19-67, with a mode of about 40 years of age

29 people reported that their parents divorced during their childhood

Average age during said divorce= 5.76 years, with a mode of 2.

So, just in case you didn’t figure this all out in the last post, the participants who volunteered for Baker’s study were mostly middle aged with a majority of themreflecting on a divorce, and actions thereafter, that occurred between their parents during or before kindergarten. (And some of the parents never divorced.)

The interviewer should have asked Baker how she gets paid. (Constant self-promotion = books sales, speaking engagements. Research = grant money.) Oh, wait, the answer is below:

Amy: Well, a researcher’s dream is to find a topic that is both rich and fascinating and which there is human drama and a relatively understudied area where there is a significant need to be filled so that there’s a kind of"ready made" audience for your findings. The opposite of that is to do a study and you write a book or an article and it just sits on a shelf and it doesn’t help anybody.

Perhaps psych researchers are bottom feeders preying on people’s suffering and offering them solutions just to make a dollar. Opportunists. Where’s that cash cow?

Amy: But in this other category, there were father alienators and mother alienators. Basically, rather than being narcissistic and seducing the children into their camp, so to speak, they were abusive. The parents seemed to have a more anti-social personality disorder rather than a narcissistic or borderline. They really pull the kids to them through fear of rejection, fear of abandonment and more kind of controlling, even physically and sexually abusive style.

But Amy is not a clinician. She only "saw" these things via a relayed and delayedmessage from her participants. And didn’t she just say that this wasn’t considered alienation?

Amy: So, the way in which it’s like a cult is first of all, alienating parents use many of the same strategies that cult leaders use. The same youth control, they create dependency, they use the same black/white thinking. If you break it down on a point by point basis, alienating parents and cult leaders use essentially the same thought reform and emotional manipulation techniques.

Maligning motherhood or parenthood. There are probably lots of parallels that could be made between parents and cult leaders in general…or parents and military leaders…or parents and anything bad or good. Seriously, this isn’t science. It is opinion. I wouldn’t be surprised if Baker weren’t a biological parent. As an anecdote, I’ve worked with research psychologists. They love to study other folks, especially people of color and women. They are very vested in their research and often have no life outside of it. On another note, from personal experience and observation, I haven’t seen any single mother that purposefully created dependentchildren–ESPECIALLY those mothers that were once partnered with the biological father. In fact, fostering this type of relationship would be counterproductive because often times, these single mother families have less resources; and so the children are "forced" to grow up faster and become independent sooner than their intact family peers.

Amy: …based on my research with both targeted parents and these adult children and now I’ve kind of provided consultations with maybe 100 targeted parents just talking to people on the phone.

But Amy isn’t a clinician. Why is she doing this?

And here’s the parental alienation is abuse trope that is flooding the current literature:

Amy: I do indeed because although there are many definitions of emotional abuse and I just picked one, you could take any definition and compare on a point by point basis and you would see that PAS really lines up. Even if you didn’t do it on a sort of systematic basis, just intuitively, it makes sense to say, "Well, a parent who makes a child lose a relationship with the other parent is abusive in and of itself." Even if you didn’t also conclude, as I do, that these very strategies that the parent uses are abusive.

Intuitively? Is that science?

Amy: Well, the people that I interviewed talked at length about self-esteem problems. They said they hated themselves and thought that they were horrible, horrible people. Part of this is the guilt they felt when they finally had the realization that they had been manipulated to treat one parent very badly.

The interviewer should have asked if the target parent later turned out to be the wonderful parent that they had so hoped for. We often hear the wonderful stories of people reuniting with their biological parents, rarely do we publicly hear of the tragedies and disappointments. No one wants to be wrong. He should have also asked how the participants came to this realization and if the self-esteem problems could have been related to other issues.

Amy: Let me just say that children who have gone through this really treat the targeted parent very shabbily. They’re rude, ungrateful, nasty, hostile and cold. They really put the targeted parent through the ringer and if they ever do figure out, "Gee, I was really manipulated by Dad to treat Mom really badly." They grow up and they feel badly about themselves.

Teenagers in intact one and two parent families can act the same way and the idea of considering them mentally ill or brainwashed would be laughable. Children that have been physically abused by their parents, especially in cases of sexual abuse, often grow up to feel badly about themselves, too. How would Baker know the difference?

Amy: But they also have self-esteem problems because they’ve been told their whole life that one of their parents doesn’t love them. They’ve become too dependent on the approval of the alienating parent. This is another way in which it’s like a cult. Good parents aim to promote the self-efficiency and independence of their children but like cult leaders, alienating parents really want to maintain that dependency of their children on them and that in turn does lead to a low self-esteem. They don’t feel they can take care of themselves and make good choices in the world.

Or maybe one of their parents didn’t love them or love them in a way in which they could understand as a child. Or maybe the child wasn’t an independent child, or the child was slow, or needed more time to form an attachment to one parent and that process was disrupted. Correlation doesn’t equal causation. This stuff cannot be proven. It is absolute conjecture.

Amy: Yes, I have a lot of advice, and again, I’m not going to have time now. Maybe at the end, I can give my email address so people can contact me if they want.

But Amy is not a clinician. Why is she doing this?

Amy: So I advise, unless your lawyer or therapist tells you otherwise — andalways do what your lawyer or therapist tells you — you should be having some contact with your kid every week, every month, whatever it is.

Because you can’t do this without them! You cannot foster, maintain, develop, etc a relationship with your children without someone else telling you how to do it. Oh, and you must pay them. This doesn’t sound healthy. It sounds like parental dependency…and I thought we were supposed to foster independent relationships!!

Amy: I invite people who reach out to me. I’m not a clinician. I can give one shot advice or direct you to maybe to a therapist or support groups or some kind of help of support groups who start in my county…

Oh yes, she is not a clinician. She’ll refer you to her friends or get you to buy her book (or gift it to you, which works out really well if she gets a kickback)

Amy: Well, I do recommend a particular website. I have no vested interest in it. It’s just a website I think is good. It’s called Parental Alienation Awareness Organization.

Hmmm.

1. Baker promotes the theory of PAS and so does Parental Alienation Awareness Organization (PAAO).

2. They have lots of her info http://albertapaao.blogspot.com/2010/05/amy-baker-describes-difference-between.html.

3. Her book is on their site http://www.paawareness.org/books.asp.

4. Her article is on their site http://www.paawareness.org/awarness-articles.asp.

5. Her name is mentioned on their pamphlet that they suggest people distributehttp://www.paawareness.org/Brochure/Brochure_ChildHelp_US.pdf.

6. She is listed on their pages of experts twice http://www.paawareness.org/experts.asp

Is this what we call a non-vested interest?

Or is this a collaboration of disease mongering (emphasis mine):

“Disease mongering” is the effort by pharmaceutical companies (or others with similar financial interests) to enlarge the market for a treatment by convincing people that they are sick and need medical intervention[2]. Typically, the disease is vague, with nonspecific symptoms spanning a broad spectrum of severity—from everyday experiences many people would not even call “symptoms,” to profound suffering. The market for treatment gets enlarged in two ways: by narrowing the definition of health so normal experiences get labeled as pathologic, and by expanding the definition of disease to include earlier, milder, and presymptomatic forms (e.g., regarding a risk factor such as high cholesterol as a disease in itself).

Do not forget what Amy J. L. Baker does for a living. Via her website,

Dr. Baker has a Ph.D. in Developmental Psychology from Teachers College of Columbia University.

Her areas of research include parental alienation, child welfare, parent involvement in their children’s education, early intervention, and attachment. She is the Director of Research at the Vincent J. Fontana Center for Child Protection.

She is the author or co-author of 3 books and over 45 peer reviewed articles.

Dr. Baker is available as an expert witness and for print, radio, and television interviews.

This is about the late Vincent J. Fontana.

This is about The New York Foundling’s Vincent J. Fontana

Center for Child Protection.

Also, in Amy Baker’s own words (December 2009):

>> 4) I have been hired to train New York child protection workers about

>> parental alienation and to help develop the North Dakota custody

>> investigation manual.

>>

>> 5) I have been invited to participate in a plenary panel discussion

>> about parental alienation at the upcoming Association of Family and

>> Conciliation Courts conference in Denver.

If you have ever had any question as to why children are being hurt by the system and in the system, look at the players…the organizations, the members, and the collaborations. Family violence is profitable because it is human drama ("high conflict divorce") where there is a significant need to be filled (by the perpetrators of violence and by the victims) and a ready made audience (the family court system’s judges and lawyers, Child Protective Services, Court Whores, the police force). All funded by monies from the Department of Health and Human Services Administration of Children and Families DHHS/ACF.

There is FINALLY a SOLUTION to an ever increasing problem, thanks to the years of hard work and determination of one woman, Susan Murphy Milano.  There currently exists one deterrence to getting this information in the right hands…and each day that goes by another life is tragically taken.

ARE YOU TIRED and ANGRY of the "system" (political, media, corporate, those in POWER) who refuse to do what’s right for the citizens of our great country? Why do they continue to do what’s right for their career at the neglect and expense of the very people from which their power exists?

The solution is here yet they choose to ignore it.

Since I recognize the importance of the method described below in saving a life, whether it be from an abusive dating relationship or abusive marriage, I am posting the article and video that most closely explains the importance of getting this information in the right hands.

Call To Action: Will you choose to be a part of the solution by copying and pasting or forwarding to your social media sites, blogs and friends in order to spread the word?

The Price Of A Life

by Delilah

Family and domestic violence was put on the plate of Susan Murphy-Milano the day she was born. She didn’t ask for it, it asked for her, perhaps knowing that somewhere in her soul was something that could make a difference in the way that cases of domestic violence were handled. Living and breathing it daily in her home growing up, she survived for a reason, and, in my opinion, that reason is to help the helpless, to guide those who are living in violent chaos and having a hard time making sense of their own lives. She has been doing it for over 20 years!

This year Susan wrote and published the book, Time’s Up: A Guide on How to Leave an Abusive and Stalking Relationship and laid the procedures she created and used during the last 20 years of working directly with victims of violence. Point of fact…not one woman in 20 years died while on Susan’s watch, and that alone should speak for her knowledge and expertise.

This book is even more important to Susan because it was written to be something that will be used by victims who cannot be helped by her personally. Each day hundreds of emails come into her box seeking her help. Most inquiries are those in which someone will die, the “high risk” cases of a woman living in the danger zone, reaching out desperately in the eleventh hour. Susan is only one person, and realizing that, she offers the Time’s Up book and the Evidentiary Abuse Affidavit to all who need it.

After the book was launched in April, 2010 on her murdered mother’s birthday, there have been many accolades and great reviews, but that is not enough! While all the good things said and written about Time’s Up are flattering, it’s not enough to get this book into the hands of the victims who are being beaten and killed every day. This book was not written and distributed for the sake of book sales, or for flattering words, it was written for one purpose only…..to save lives.

How many celebrities have supported the issue of domestic violence and how many organizations have been built around the need to help? Thousands of people have taken to the streets to educate and bring awareness to the general public, and yet, we are seeing lives lost in epidemic proportions due to family violence. Many wonderful laws have been passed, many advocates have spoken to Congress, and every day people still look the other way. Why?

In order to get Time’s Up, and the information contained to the victim who needs it right now is a daunting task taken on by one woman with a passion and a mission to save lives. Susan Murphy-Milano is not out to become the next media darling looking for a gig on the latest news talk show, although she would definitely appear if asked, she would appear as the spokesperson for those who cannot speak for themselves because they are frozen with fear wondering how long they have to live!

So, what is the price for a life? What more do we need to do? All of the “yays” and “shares” and pats on the back only go so far in these issues which are consuming many! How much do we have to pay to scream from the rooftops until people “get it?” If one missing person’s family is given the peace of mind they deserve, if one victim of a violent relationship is spared their life, is it worth it? Who are those “in charge” that can make a difference and why are they not stepping up to the plate? Is it money, fame, recognition that they want? What’s the price they are willing to pay? And why, oh why, does it have to come down to money?

And if it is a financial reason, then we need to talk because they are not understanding the financial price of not utilizing the solution. This solution will SAVE money and lives!!!

Dear Friends,

     I would like to extend a heartfelt THANK YOU!  I am grateful for your time, generous support, and unwavering spirit you have collectively shown over the last four months.  It’s hard to believe that June 8th is just a day away!  For those of you who live in San Bernardino County, I am thankful that I can count on your vote in Tuesday’s election.

     I am writing to ask one last favor of you all.  Please send a personal email to ALL of your friends and family, reminding them to VOTE and to VOTE FOR HOSKING.  It sounds corny, but every vote counts, and there is no indication how many votes will make the difference on Tuesday.

     I know you are all busy, so I have drafted a sample email below that you can cut & paste into a blank e-mail, and send out in a matter of seconds.

     I wanted to make this is easy as possible for all of you, as you have contributed so much to my efforts and my campaign already.  If you would prefer to write something yourself, please feel free.

     Once again, thank you for all you’ve done to help me over the last few months.  The finale is upon us.  With your help, I look forward to serving as a Superior Court Judge!

Sincerely,

James Hosking

I need your help.  Election Day is Tuesday, June 8th, and I am asking you to PLEASE vote for James Hosking for Superior Court Judge.  I support James Hosking: he is trying desperately to remove incumbent Judge Robert Lemkau.

Earlier this year, Judge Lemkau refused to protect Baby Wyatt from Wyatt’s father, who had written a story about killing Wyatt.  Baby Wyatt’s mother asked Lemkau to protect her son.  Judge Lemkau accused her of lying, of manufacturing evidence, and told the 23 year old single mother who couldn’t afford an attorney that there would be “adverse consequences” if she came back to his courtroom.  Click Here to read the Transcript.

On TV, this has been called "…one of the most heated and emotional judicial elections in the country," Pat Harvey, CBS 2 News Los Angeles.  Click Here to Watch the Video.

Hosking is a veteran San Bernardino Deputy District Attorney, earned a Master’s of Law degree, was nominated Prosecutor of the Year by the Sheriff’s Department, and instructs both law enforcement and other prosecutors.   Please visit www.electhosking.org for detailed information.

"James Hosking is more than qualified to become a Superior Court Judge,” Mike Ramos, District Attorney of San Bernardino County.  Click Here for a list of endorsements.

www.JudgeVoterGuide.com  rated both Hosking and Judge Lemkau.  Hosking earned an 8 of 10.  Lemkau received a rating of 3.5 of 10 – among the lowest of all the judicial candidates in California. 

www.electionforum.org gave Hosking "Two Thumbs Up" and Lemkau received "No Thumbs Up."

I cannot understate how important it is that you VOTE for James Hosking on Tuesday, June 8th.  If you feel the way I do, please send this email to everyone you know in San Bernardino County!

Thank you!

(KS) Daughter Behind Bars for an SRS ‘MISTAKE’ Bambi Hazen Fighting for her daughter’s RIGHTS

WICHITA, Kansas — Ashton Baker was 11 years old when her family took its last portrait together. Now, 15, her life is a long way from picture perfect.

Late last Friday night, police took her from her mother’s home and placed her in the Sedgwick County Juvenile Detention Facility. She didn’t see her mother again until Tuesday morning at her first court appearance.

"It’s hard for me because I see my daughter in handcuffs and shackles for something she never did when you can see all these other criminals walking the streets on parole and probation," said Bambi Baker-Hazen, Ashton’s mother.

It all started back in 2008 when administrators at Wilbur Middle School reported Ashton truant — even though her mother says the school had a faxed notification from the state that she was home-schooling her.

The family’s problems escalated when her father reported that she ran away when she went to her mother’s house. The state placed Ashton in the Wichita Children’s home where she spent 47 days before running away from there.

The case got national attention after Hazen refused to tell a judge where he daughter was.

"I said, ‘Okay, handcuff me,’ and they did," she said.

Hazen spent seven days in jail. Now, a year-and-a-half later, court documents show Ashton is being held on those original truancy charges.

Baker says since her daughter has a history of running, she is remaining in custody.

"This is injustice at its best," Hazen said.

But victims’ advocates question Ashton’s treatment.

"We have a right to speak out and when our rights are taken away, because we speak justice and we’re concerned about our family and then this level of retaliation is allowed," said Juanita Blackmon with Justice Keepers of Wichita.

A spokesperson for Sedgwick County says the restraints are standard procedure, and even though Ashton’s mother has made the case public, they don’t feel it’s in the best interest of the child to comment.
