And THIS is a reason why justice should never be about the victim. What this woman did was pure evil, and she not only viciously harmed her ex-husband, but killed any chance of a healthy relationship with her sons.

This is just so absurd! The police and prosecutors should know you can get a 5yo child to say anything. This in nothing short of a rigged case. And they used a baby to do it! Now this baby lived all his childhood and on to adulthood knowing he hurt his father with a lie.

Is this protecting children? Or is this using children to gain a conviction?

Is this how the state and proponents of these laws make sure a child grows up mentally and emotionally secure?

Is this justice? To lose sight of honesty and integrity to get a man convicted knowing it will have a hugely negative affect on the quality of his life? An affect that undoubtedly had a negative effect on the children too.

I have a feeling the karen Leap, and anyone else stupid enough to think these laws actually work, is screwed up and sick; this chick that was trying to hurt Her ex, (similar to the scenario that landed me on the unconstitutional and illegal registry) Earnest by making sure he would never get to see his kids and be harmed in the process of keeping him from his kids. I also think anyone that supports these kind of laws are also mentally and morally screwed up. It’s sad, but this kind of injustice happens all the time.

The article goes on to list 4 devastating laws and acts; weren’t the laws already on the books good enough? And didn’t the laws already on the books work? Weren’t the perpetrators caught? And didn’t the laws already on the books work in the other cases mentioned? Is this not nonsensical logic, to pass new laws when there are already laws that can address the kind of situation mentioned in the article?

I think this is more proof that these laws never worked properly and should be done away with. Good laws don’t make it so easy to convict an innocent man or woman, good laws don’t harm children, good laws don’t make people homeless and unemployable, good laws don’t put the public in fear, good laws don’t make those convicted fear for their safety, good laws don’t get people killed. Good laws actually work for their stated purpose, and these laws, act’s, statutes and ordinances clearly do not work.

Yes, these un necessary laws do in fact “go too far.”
