  1. My older kids have officially grounded me from this conversation. I'm having to eat my words when I tell them to walk away from things like this, but I didn't do that here.
  2. 1. You're certain, but... 2. I have been well aware of those facts for more years than I have fingers and toes. I did not read up on Google how CPS works. I lived it and it is quite fresh in my memory, considering that was my first experience in a courtroom. You don't forget something like that. You made it appear emergency always means temporary and it does not, but for you, that's justifiable.
  3. 1. An attorney whose paycheck comes from the state, correct? In another words, the attorney is working in favor of the state's interest, because that is their boss. You might as well dig your own grave, because you're on your own. 2. Emergency does not equal temporary, but in your mind, temporary justifies everything. I understand. That makes perfect sense.
  4. My parents did have our family attorney from over two decades, because we were not poor and were well within resources to afford whatever my parents needed. CPS was still bent on not admitting their wrong and ruining everyone's lives in the process. You are right, however, because poorer families are usually the ones in the courtroom and are often times not aware of their rights.
  5. I'm getting your message this morning, but I'll have to answer you later when dh comes home. He's the one who does all that with our kids and would know how to respond with specifics. I didn't know people had a problem with this, so that's why I was confused. Dh makes it seem effortless and suggested Python as the next step after Scratch.
  6. Yes, I did give an answer. You refuse to accept it. You want me to agree with you and until I do, you won't accept my answer. I can't help you find clarity when you read into what I've written only what you want to hear.
  7. You condemned this woman, but you have done the same. Good night.
  8. :svengo: I gave an example of where someone might be coming from. Having an understanding of where someone is coming from doesn't mean I condone their behavior. :glare: Therefore, nothing about what I said is conflicting. Are you aware there are people who think taking your kids to fast food joints is child abuse?
  9. I agree with the bolded. No one is perfect. Instead of being fast to throw stones, why don't we try to help carry the load of our fellow man? A person in that situation could have said, "It looks like you're having a hard day. Would you mind if I bought your meal, so you don't have to worry about that?" Maybe you would have rather written a note, but after you already paid for the meal. It is amazing what a kind act will do for someone.
  10. Then I truly apologize for misunderstanding you. AndyJoy, even a good detective would doubt your story, not because of a slight on your character, but to protect the innocent. You would want the same courtesy given to you if someone was accusing you of a crime, wouldn't you? If I sound intent on doubting you, you're right. You accused grandma of abuse before an untold number of people on the internet without her ability to defend her side of the story. That doesn't go over well for someone like me who is very justice oriented. If grandma was wrong, then do something. You didn't do anything, which leads me to believe you either willfully allowed abuse to happen without standing up for the defenseless child, or the situation was not as bad as you say it was. I believed the latter before and that hasn't changed. One only needs to go to YouTube to find videos where if you just listen to the situation, you would expect an entirely different situation happened, but if you get to see what actually happened, you change your mind. Video is powerful for that reason. Recalling an event with our own memory is faulty and every courtroom knows this. It would be interesting to see on camera what the grandma actually did.
  11. "New poster" with a "too strange to be true" radar? I see. That perfectly negates my story. CPS doesn't have any corruption and I lied about it all. You caught me. AndyJoy, it has been nice speaking to you. Good night.
  12. Accidentally sent that post when I wasn't finished, but I'm too tired to write it all out again.
  13. I missed this post earlier. I gave an example and you come back to say the grandma in your story is not Italian. :huh: Would you also propose I was also saying every Italian grandmother does this? Your mother did not smack you in the face, but she spanked you in a "calm manner". With all due respect, there are people in this world who think your mother abused you and should be in prison, preferably hung without a trial by jury. You are proving my point that you have to tread with caution with these things and be slow to say something is abuse when the situation is not black/white.
  14. Where on earth did I ever say anything about that happening in my family? Do you see why I don't trust your testimony? You made up something about my family when I said absolutely nothing of the sort. You read something into my story that simply wasn't there! People reading that would have believed you if I didn't come to defend myself. The more you talk, the less I believe your story to be accurate, because if you added that to my story, what have you done to grandma's story?
  15. Here's the deal. When family courts treat the accused the same way any other court does with a right to a trial by jury, then I will say to call police until your heart is content. Until then, I will never throw someone in that courtroom unless I truly believe they should be there. Every person should have the right to a trial by jury and this is the rare exception in family court. That is wrong.
