This is taken from the therapist records for my child. I did not post the entire note to protect privacy. But you can see what the therapist is noting. The Hennepin County family court judges, Guardian ad Litems, evaluator (etc) were all aware of this incident when recommeding sole custody to the abuser.
“My experience with “Child” is that he is a very articulate child who is readily willing to share his experience. “Child” has identified with biological father stating ‘I have temper tantrums just like my dad’ and has told me he doesn’t like it when his dad ‘chokes him’ while illustrating the universal choke hold around his neck.”
Family Court Awarded Custody to Martin, a Man Who Choked My Little Boy.. Imagine those big hands around his little neck, and how afraid he must have been. Squeezing and squeezing while his own son struggled for breath.
Family Court has failed to protect my children, and instead, placed these precious children in harm’s way .
