Portland Police Vie with Anne Frank's Captors for
'Nazi Raiders of the Century' Award
[Editor's Note: August 14, 2005. This story
picks up from an illegal nighttime raid by Portland Police on August 10,
2005 at the home of Roger Weidner
(former attorney, prosecutor, and candidate for Oregon governor) in order
to arrest Lynnae Lake and take her 9 year daughter,
Emily, into 'protective' custody, but the genesis of the story
lies in Lynnae's activities to bring legal action against a chemical plant
located 5 miles from her home in Michigan. Accusing someone of being a 'child
abuser', of course, and putting the Child Protective Services (CPS) dogs
on them is the fastest way, unfortunately, to take out a muckraker these
days The unbelievably abusive and criminal behavior of the Portland Police
in this case exceeds anything that I've read of in recent memory. The child
custody hearing on this case was moved up to Monday, August 15, 2005. Contact
names involved with this case are listed below
Update, August 20: The genesis of Lynnae
Lake's CPS story is now more clear. The issue goes beyond a legal fight
with the chemical plant. Apparently, the city was trying to get Lynnae to
give up her property for development as well. Shennigans ensued. An earlier
divorce resulted in the father initially having custody of Emily, but Lynnae
fought to get her back. An older, disgruntled daughter apparently wanted
to live with her boyfriend and reported Lynnae to CPS as an abusive parent.
Lynnae fought the CPS and made a CPS case worker look foolish in Michigan
court, which created a vendetta motive by the CPS to go after Lynnae. Lynnae
fled Michigan with Emily to avoid having CPS taking custody of her younger
daughter. Lynnae and Emily were living in the home of Roger Weidner for
six months prior to the raid by Portland Police on the night of August 10,
2005. More details below, including statements from Lynnae Lake..Ken Adachi]

August 14, 2005
Portland, Oregon. On August 10, 2005, Lynnae Lake,
Family Rights activist from Michigan and co-host of "A
Voice for Children Radio Show" was arrested at the home of Roger
> , long time defender of family rights. When Roger attempted to
discover why police surrounded his house and that of his 95 year old
Weidner was told by police "you know why we are here
- where are they?".
Weidner said he had no idea what they were talking about and
where was their warrant?
Roger was told they "didn't need a warrant". Roger
was immediately arrested and thrown into the back of a police car - one
of seven which surrounded his house. .
Twelve police officers of the Portland Police Department stormed into the
house terrorizing his 95 year old mother as she took a bath. No names were
called out, nor did they attempt to identify who they were searching for.
The search went on for an hour.
Lynnae and her 9
year old daughter were in the basement calling individuals to say
that the police had broken into Roger's house and had arrested Roger for
unknown reasons and were pounding all over upstairs on both levels. Lynnae
and her daughter were told by people on the phone to secure themselves as
safely as possible while attempts were going to be made to see what was
The police spent many long minutes banging around and just saying "Come
out!. We know you are here". Finally they headed for the basement calling
they were bringing attack dogs and "they" would be bitten.
Frightened beyond belief and in complete fear for their lives,
Emily and her mom prayed for relief from this unknown attack from without.
The dog was heard snarling and growling and the police saying "get
'em, get 'em" and "down, down" apparently to the snarling
animal. The police also said tasers
were going to be used. Again, total terror reigned as the mom and Emily
cried and prayed for this nightmare to end.
A door was kicked in and all kinds of shouting occurred on the part of the
police. The police then pepper sprayed 9 year old Emily. Emily was
completely without the ability to breathe and was instantly throwing up.
Her mother tried to rinse her, pushing her under a shower and trying to
get her to breathe. The police turned off the water and the mom turned
it back on and the shower was again turned on and off over and over. The
Mom cried out "for heaven's sake she is just a child!!!"
And the police pepper sprayed them again
with Emily once again getting the worst of it.
Mom was thrown and tackled on the basements steps by several officers while
Emily was ripped from her arms. Emily was choking and screaming "don't
hurt my mom" and "I want my mom" while other officers held
Lynnae was handcuffed and hauled up the stairs and thrown on the floor of
the breakfast nook. The police themselves were all choking, gagging and
coughing. Emily was removed screaming from the house. The police said to
her "it is OK, you can trust us we are the police". Emily said
"you are the police, I DON'T trust you" and the officers said
"oh, good parent to teach your child that!".
Emily was forced to watch her mom being hauled out to a police car and driven
away, Roger Weidner, whom she also trusted, was also in a police car. She
called out "I love you " to her mom and her mom called back "I
love you too don't forget the phone" and then was gone.
Roger was then released from the police car while Emily was taken away in
a another police car. At no time was a DHS/CPS worker seen to protect the
safety of this little girl - but hey, isn't that the police's job too?
Emily was allowed to make a phone call out several hours later to Nancy
of the Foundation for Children's Rights
in Michigan and the caseworker promised both of them that Emily would be
allowed to call again. Emily has not been heard from since.
In jail, the mother was severely beaten and threatened several times. At
no time were charges expressed against her or was she read her rights. She
on the other hand demanded by what authority had kidnapped her and her child
and arrested them all on assault and battery, kidnapping and unlawful endangerment
of individuals particularly a minor child. She repeatedly demanded the inmate
manual and complaint forms. She demanded the whereabouts of her daughter
and for someone to check on Mrs. Weidner as she believed that Roger too
had been arrested.
One police officer (of two who were pulling her hair, while three others
held her while she was double shackled) screamed "how would you like
me to rip your fucking hair out of your scalp?" Plucky woman that she
is, she replied just as loudly "DO IT" and they did.
About 24 hours later now charges were supposed to be against Lynnae for
custodial interference, but the charges never matured. An arraignment
was to be held. Surprisingly, this arraignment was at the same time as
a "secret" "shelter hearing held in another court was going
on for Emily. No notice of this "shelter" hearing for Emily
was given to Lynnae.
This family is well known and loved here in Oregon and by me personally.
Many supporters rallied on such short notice and different groups went to
the different courts.
No arraignment happened for Lynnae - no charges were brought and she was
told she would be released in a couple of hours. Because of no charges or
arraignment of Lynnae I was able to head over to the "shelter"
hearing with a group of outraged citizens.
Lynnae found out through a phone call she was allowed to make to Nancy
Luckhurstback in Michigan that there was a hearing for Emily
happening at the same time. She demanded to the "court officers"
of the jail her right to be at this hearing and the fact she had not been
served notice. She was basically told 'too bad'.
Several hours went by and release did not come. Two officers said "we
have good news and bad news: you have no charges, but now you have a fugitive
warrant from Michigan and we can't let you out". Lynnae calmly said
OK and called Nancy once again to say she was now not going to be released.
Not one professional, including the court attorney appointed for Lynnae,
Lissa Kaufman , even mentioned the fact the mother was
not served notice of the "shelter" hearing and that this hearing
should be postponed until such time as she could attend.
The Gallery held at least 12 supporters of this family including
myself, Will Gaston, Roger Weidner, Susan Detlefsen of Motherinterrupted
TV show, a DHS worker who had been on Susan's show stating the corruption
of the system, and Larry Jackson a prominent business and newspaper man.
Many stood on the authority of AMICUS CUREA (Friend of the Court) to protest
the hearing, the fact the mother was not present, Emily was not present
among other things.
Judge Waller allowed the supporters to speak and said she
could not move forward with anything as there were no charges pending against
Lynnae and they only had a pick up order from Michigan but did not have
the paperwork so had no authority to proceed. After much discussion about
scheduling the next hearing was set for Wednesday, August 17, 2005 at 1
Friday, August 12: Sometime in the afternoon, Lynnae was
set free. She found the elderly Mrs. Weidner ( 95 years old) still traumatized
by the events of 3 days prior. She kept crying and praying for Emily and
asking how could the police take a child who is calling and crying for her
mother. She went to her knees a few times to pray for Emily. She kept saying
"Emily, my princess, what can be happening to her. Why would they take
her from her mother that loves her so. I used to work for child abuse services
there is no abuse of that little girl they love each other very much".
This has also been captured on video and will be presented to the judge.
At about 4:15 pm after several calls to attorney Lissa Kaufman's office
where she was told Ms Kaufman was unavailable until Monday she did get a
chance to speak to the legal assistant. She was told very little was known
and could she (the assistant) call back and set an appointment for Monday
morning at 11:30 to meet with Kaufman. She was however given JD Devros the
caseworker/supervisor's number to call about Emily.
At 5:05 PM the legal assistant called back asking if Lynnae had been able
to reach Devros ( no) and said she had been on the phone with him herself.
At this time Lynnae was informed of the case number, that Kaufman had requested
parenting time with Emily prior to the next hearing, that Devors had been
given the contact information and was going to set up that and talk to her
(HAS NOT HAPPENED) and that the new shelter hearing had been ADVANCED TO
Monday, August 15 at 1PM. She said this was done without finding
out if any attorney was available. She said there would be no time to with
attorney Kaufman except possibly a half hour prior to the hearing. Also
Lynnae was informed at that time that following Monday's hearing Emily
would be sent back to Michigan.
Of course, Lynnae protested all of this and again protested the fact she
had not been served notice. She was told she would be served at court.
Now this is AFTER 5 PM and on a FRIDAY where no state offices or courts
Lynnae did call Devros and left a lengthy message. She also found the email
address for Devros and has sent emails to him - again with no response.
Susan Detleftsen provided Judge Waller's email and the Judge has been receiving
has also been hearing about this along with many thousands
of individuals, activists, news media and legislators across the nation
and the world. The White House has been contacted.
All individuals including legislators back in Michigan are livid about what
has taken place here in our "fair" state to "protect"
the mental, emotional and physical safety of children and specifically this
little tiny child.

We are calling for an all out press of people to attend this phony, unlawful
hearing and once again observe the fraud of the court and the outright corruption
and conspiracy that holds us ALL in its evil clutches.
Pray for this family - let your voices be heard in hitting "reply all"
and add your VOICES in getting this poor little girl FREE and back in the
arms of her loving but devastated parent. You will be reaching the Judge
and the caseworker on this case.

P.O. BOX 132
Mt Angel, Oregon 97362
On August 10, 2005, a mother and daughter were violently
taken into custody by at least seven Portland Oregon cops with no warrant.
The mother, Lynnae Lake, did not resist arrest, but the
cops beat the daylights out of her. The cops were reminded of their Constitutional
responsibility in making an arrest, and replied "We don't need a warrant
and we don't have to give her her rights".
The daughter, 9 year old Emily Lake, tried to protect her
mother and was pepper sprayed TWICE.
Which leads one to wonder if the cops even knew why they were
on the call.
The "authorities" are pretending that this is a
"child abuse" case. Other than the egregious abuse of Emily by
the "Child Protectors" when they had her in custody in the past,
this case is about PROPERTY, land and home.
The way I understand it-
In Michigan, there is a lovely piece of land situated close
to a lovely river in a lovely valley. This lovely scene is located about
5 miles downstream from a chemical plant. The chemical plant had destroyed
the river and poisoned the land. Lynnae Lake had sought redress from the
chemical company's damage to her property value.
In short order, a "child abuse" allegation surfaces.
There is no quicker way to make your political troubles "go away"
than a child abuse allegation against a parent. The CPS agency will go after
the parent with malicious disregard for fact, truth or the Constitutional
protections afforded to CRIMINALS. This is after all, a CIVIL case.
The accused instantly finds their credibility, honor, and
social standing destroyed. Shortly, the accused will lose their job and
their financial ability to defend themselves. There is nothing to "win".
With the weight of the entire system arrayed against them, and no remaining
credibility, the only choice for some people is to FLEE.
The Underground Railroad.
Yes, just like the Underground
Railroad for the slaves in the middle 1800's, there is an underground
railroad today. It is called "FamTrak". It is only for PROVABLY
INNOCENT parents and their children. The operation of "FamTrak"
has been severely curtailed over the past 4 years due to America's rapid
slide into being a Surveillance State due to the "War against Terror".
"Political correctness" dictates that the government is NOT looking
specifically for (profiling) middle eastern men between 15 and 50 years
old. In order to be "fair", Everybody's movements and travels
Lynnae and Emily Lake were "FamTrak" travelers.
They were being protected while advocates in Michigan were plowing through
the political labyrinth of Michigan politics to expose this case for what
it really is.
The Lake Family
I have been privileged to spend a couple of afternoons with
Lynnae and Emily Lake. I found Lynnae (the mom) to be highly intelligent
with impressive knowledge and experience with the technical aspects of electronics.
I was impressed with her uncompromising insistence on truth, accuracy and
high moral and ethical standards. Emily Lake (the daughter), like most homeschoolers
was very well-spoken, polite, and quiet, exuded a high intellect. She was
terrified at the possibility of ending back in CPS' talons based on her
previous terrible experiences in foster care. Unfortunately, her fear of
abusive treatment by the authorities continues to be prophetic.
has been released by Portland Police due to no warrant or pickup order existed.
Emily Lake remains in Oregon Child Protective Service (CPS) custody. The
dependency or shelter hearing had been postponed to Wednesday,
August 17 has now been mysteriously moved toMonday, August
15 which rather inconveniences the defense to 15 minutes to prepare
Advocates and activists all over the country are rallying
to the Lake's defense.
For a common place for everybody to "meet up" and
share information and updates, please go to-
A shelter hearing for Emily Lake will be held tomorrow at
2:30 at the Multnomah County Juvenile Courthouse at 1401 NE 68th (behind
the Glisan Fred Myer).
Emily and her mother "Anne" left their home back
east some time ago to avoid being separated for a second time by CPS. Many
of these families contact me because I have a cable show that exposes CPS
fraud and abuse.
Some of you who will receive this will remember meeting Emily,
a bright, charming 9 year old who reported being kidnapped by CPS and abused
in foster care, then finally returned to her mother, only to be hunted again
by CPS, beginning sometime a year ago or so. Rather than subject her daughter
to being taken again by CPS, Anne did what hundreds of other mothers across
the country have done: hide their children from CPS, who alleges to be "protecting"
the same children who say CPS has hurt them in the past.
According to an eye-witness report, Emily and Anne were violently
apprehended by Portland Police (7 patrol cars with police dogs). Both Emily
and the mother were pepper sprayed, and the mother, trying to protect Emily
from police, may have been beaten. Emily was heard screaming for her mother
and violently protesting her "arrest" by the Portland Police.
Please show your support for the family tomorrow by attending
the shelter hearing tomorrow.
The mom [Lynnae Lake] called me today from the Multnomah Co
jail in Oregon. She informed me they did not resist when the police came.
She was beaten unmercifully and chunks of hair were yanked out of her head.
This happened after arriving at the Jail. The officer said if she didn't
like that he could rip her head off. She thinks her foot is broken. Both
she and the child were pepper sprayed twice and the little girl Emily got
the worst of it. The Portland city police took attack dogs with them. She
has not to this moment been given her rights. She has not been arraigned.
She has not been officially arrested. She has requested a prisoners handbook
and a complaint form and has been refused both. She has not had any medical
treatment for her wounds. Are they waiting for the bruises to go away first?
She was told they were not going to hold her she was going
to be let go no charges. Oh but wait then the Judge in Midland Co Michigan
decided he wanted her held on a fugitive warrant.
This woman left this state one year ago with her daughter
had not been contacted by DHS/CPS prior to leaving. There was not a case
open that she knew of, there was no warrant. The worker entered a private
school without a warrant, without a court order and interview her older
daughter against orders left with the school office and placed in the school
records. This has already been tested in the Federal courts it is a big
NO NO. The mother arrived to pick her children up on the last day of school
and was warned by a school employee that CPS was interviewing her teen age
daughter. It falls under the 4th amendment of our little used U.S. Constitution.
Also there is a another amendment not often used by our the various states
DHS offices it is called the 14th amendment which covers due process. Oh
but there is so much more.
There is so much more to this mother's story. Her oldest daughter
now married made a CPS complaint 4 years ago. The children were removed
and were place with the father who left them with an aunt. The children
there in that house tortured poor little Emily. They were allowed to put
a dog collar on her and force her to eat dog food out of a dish on the floor.
When Mom was again awarded custody of her family she was one child short.
You see the oldest had been placed in Independent living in an apartment
with her boyfriend. That is exactly what the Mom had been arguing about
with this kid. Ok the kid got her way paid for by the state of Michigan
with Federal Title IV funds.
In other words the State of Michigan sanctioned a minor living
with a member of the opposite sex against the mother's wishes. Isn't that
special. Fast forward 3 years to 2004 and the exact same thing happened.
This was the second in line a 17 year old who had met some guy online she
has never met and is going to move in with him and live happily ever after.
We have the e-mails to prove this folks. So over a 3-5 month period the
oldest daughter who is by now married and the middle sister have decided
to cook up a story and don't forget they now know how to play the system.
So after planning this, oh and did I forget to mention in these e-mails
back and forth between the sisters there is mentioned a Dan R who is the
worker who works for Midland Co CPS who is coaching them in how to put the
story together so it will fly so he can take the the middle girl and the
youngest girl, our little angel Emily.
Folks there is so much more to this story that you would not
believe. There is the mysterious circumstances surrounding the sequestering
of this woman's terminally ill mother by a half sister and not letting other
family members know where she was. Right after this happened the Will which
covered a Million dollar estate was amended. Then the mother was placed
on hospice with the half sister who just happens to be a nurse being the
care taker. Upon the mother's death the mother's body is taken to a funeral
home in South Haven MI with strict orders to the Director that no one is
allowed to see the body. Anne was not supposed to be notified of her mother's
death. She did find out and called the funeral home and the Director told
her he would let her and her sister and brother see the body if they would
like to. They went to be with their mother.
After Anne left with her little girl Emily. She had asked
her fiancee to please stay and care for her house. But all of a sudden he
is served with eviction papers from a real estate woman who had by the way
bought several of the mother's pieces of property in the past. She listed
herself as agent for the landlord and listed as reasons for the eviction
he owed $10,800 in back rent. And the house was inhabitable, but she was
not the agent for anyone. Anne had nothing to do with this woman. But her
half sister Eileen Pearson of 1422 Homecrest in Kalamazoo did lots of business
with this woman.
On December 7th 2004 Eileen Pearson the half sister contacted
the Midland city assessors office and some how got them to change the address
on the tax statement for Anne's house to come to her address in Kalamazoo.
When someone checked on this fact with the assessor's office just recently
it was found the address had been changed back (again by Eileen Pearson)
but the website did not reflect that. How ever when Anne checked the website
in April the address for the tax statement was hers. So that is a real puzzle.
HMMM did the Midland City assessor back date that for some
reason? Oh yes that's right this would nullify Anne's homestead property
tax exemption wouldn't it causing her taxes to be much higher and she would
lose her house to the state of Michigan if she can't pay the taxes. Gee,
is the loving half sister planning a little hostile take over of her home.
Let's see it has been reported by people looking after the house that a
window in the front door has been broken out and now boarded up. the window
next to that was then broken out and lights left on. But mysteriously now
in the last few weeks it is discovered there is not electricity on but Consumers
didn't turn it off. And all the fuses are fine. This has just happened.
Three lawnmowers have been stolen out of a shed one is a rider and the little
girls trampoline is no longer there. Someone is still dumping junk and other
materials on the land across the street in the flood plain and wetlands
with no permit that has been an ongoing problem for years. This has been
turned in by the way to DEQ in Lansing. This property is prime bottom land
of the Tittibawassee River.
The City of Midland has wanted it for years. The City along
with Pomranky Construction has tried to get her off that land for about
20 years. She has been told she should give it to the City and she just
needs to go away. It is all the poor woman got out of a Million dollar estate
for God's sake. The house is worth nothing but the land is worth a ton to
the City or Pomranky who want to excavate the topsoil from it to sell to
the City. That is valuable land. Not done yet folks. Some time in March
or April of 2003 Anne who was working for a non profit as a bookeeper discovered
there was something wrong with some of the accounts. She discovered there
was money missing from some of the accounts controlled by the Director of
the organization. She had not yet determined how much but it was in the
1000s. She finally collared the Director and after a bit the woman admitted
she had made "some private loans to some people" Anne turned this
in to the Board of Directors and the Michigan AGs office.
For her efforts she was fired just one week before the whole
CPS mess came down. She says the AGs office was starting an investigation
but they would probably not be able to finish it without her being able
to give them pertinent information after she left. The Director is still
the Director of this organization and Anne was warned by other people within
the organization this woman would not be above turning her in to CPS with
So now as Paul Harvey would say you have the rest of the story.
OH one last thing Anne's name is really Lynnae Lake, loving mother of Emily
Joy Lake a beautiful angel child, who has never ever been abused by her
mother, has been abused by the State of Michigan DHS/CPS.
Dear God in heaven will someone please help this woman and
that beautiful baby. The mother had taught her that our organization would
always help if something ever happened to her and to call us.
Yesterday she called. That tiny little frightened voice was
pleading with me to please help them. Then the mother came on the line.
She was petrified. She knew they were there for her and little Emmy. I could
hear the child in the background as the police were banging on windows screaming
for them to come out. They were cowering in the basement. Then the phone
went dead. A little later the phone rang and a man asked if I was Nancy.
I said yes. He said he had a rather plucky little girl there who was demanding
that he take my number and call me. The man is J.D. Devros Supervisor for
CPS in Multnomah County. He asked if I would talk to her. What a silly question.
He set the phone on speaker. And there was that tiny frightened little voice
again begging for my help.
To all of you that know me as Anne I first want to thank each
and everyone of you for your prayers. For those that came out to the hearing
and especially Joelle Detlefson as I know this must have been extremely
painful for her to go into court once again. Please keep praying as Emily
is still in custody and I have not been able to find a way to communicate
The horror and trauma that poor girl went through while the
police threatened us to get bit by the attack dogs and Tasered. They never
called out one name nor identified who they were after. They tried to snatch
her while she was outside on her bike and I was inside making lunch.
There were 12 police officers here and I had at least 5 on
me for most of the time that I was in their custody. Emily had a couple
on her too. As you know Emily was sprayed not once but twice by the pepper
spray which literally burns your skin off and can blind you. I turned a
shower on immediately for her to rinse and the police kept turning it off.
I cried out she was a child for God's sake and then they sprayed us again.
However I was not ever placed under arrest nor given in any
way shape or form my rights (Miranda) they had no charge until late yesterday
and that was custodial interference. Once I arrived at jail they beat and
threatened me numerous times one screaming obscenities at me while he was
ripping out my hair. (I told them they were all under arrest - lot of good
that did me but I did)
I can't tell you any more about Emily except she was throwing
up from the pepper spray. Screaming for them not to hurt me. Crying and
crying for her mama. (the cops were mad because she told them they were
police and she didn't trust them) and of course made her watch as they dragged
me to the car and drove off.
The 95 year old lady I take care of also had to witness all
this. She has dementia but this has so traumatized her. She goes around
saying "this is a nightmare I am living - why would the police take
Emily" "something has to be done how do we get Emily back?"
and calling out for Emily her princess. This is 3 days later so you tell
me. She also is concerned that the police are coming for her next.
What I did find out Thursday was that Emily had been allowed
to call Nancy Luckhurst President of Foundation for Children's Rights. She
is also supposed to be at the new shelter hearing on Wed.
I am covered with bruises. I was beaten severely in jail by
both men and women. Just on walking into the jail very peacefully the one
officer said "oh she got pepper sprayed - we got lots more here"
Another officer thought it was cute to watch me go to the
bathroom and even commented on he liked the show and didn't take much to
I was for almost 24 hours moved from isolation cell to isolation
cell. I repeatedly asked for the inmate manual which is the rules that prisoners
and officers must abide by. I requested medical treatment for the injuries
but was only asked if I was on any current medication (I was asked that
repeatedly like they were sure I was supposed to be on something!).
At about 1 pm Thursday 11, all of a sudden they got really
nice saying I had only a $500 bond to post - but lied when I asked about
it being paid by credit card. They said no cash or money order only. Then
said the judge my bond me out on my own. Arraignment was set for sometime
after 2PM - surprisingly the same time as the shelter hearing I was not
My guess is they did not count on the people showing up for
my arraignment or the 20 people that went to the shelter hearing and testified
on behalf of Emily and I. I thank God for each and everyone of them.
While I was waiting I was suddenly told I was released there
was no charges pending but it would take a couple of hours. Now understand
they had just started the arraignments and the men go first. At 1:30 the
officer said I am being released on a no-complaint. That means no charges
- period. She told that to Nancy Luckhurst who I had just gotten on the
It would take a couple of hours to process me out.
Well I asked about the shelter hearing - how could I have
possibly have known about that I said there were people waiting upstairs
for me and there were people waiting over for a hearing that I was not noticed
for and that was illegal.
The 2 hours goes by and I am called off to one side to be
told there was good news and bad news I was not going to be charged but
I was not going to be released a fugitive warrant was NOW out for me. I
think this was also done to see how I would react I said oh o k .
ALL bogus and after the fact. So there were not ever any charges,
I was just being kidnapped which is what I told them.
Now I'm taken (after strip search - my how fun) to a real
jail cell this one is covered in food and I am not allowed to clean it up.
This morning I got told there was no warrant and I would be
out in a few hours. However prior to being let out I now need to talk to
a psychiatrist. I think I have b been hoaxed again and am now going to be
stuffed in the looney bin. Oh yes and now I am finally given complaint forms
and the inmates manual that I have been asking for from the instant I got
So now I sit and stew for a few more hours wondering at what
cruel joke is going to happen now. So I begin to read the manual. Of which
a bunch of things were violated and I found out I had been lied to about
the bail a credit card would have done it..
But I did get released.
I got home to find that there were some people in the house
and they took everything of value that I had including the $75 that belonged
to Emily because she earned it. Over the summer she had earned over $130
of which she was so proud.
Some of what is gone is all the computer equipment that had
all my legal docs on and all of a particular website I had been working
The attorney I have been assigned is out until Monday. Now
the hearing is Monday instead of Wednesday so guess who will not be able
to speak with the attorney? Also the attorney assistant says Emily WILL
be going back to MI - does this sound PRE-DETERMINED???
PLEASE KEEP US IN YOUR PRAYERS - WE NEED ALL OF THEM AT THIS

Mother was released on 8/11/05 no charges no warrant from
MI and by the way she was held 48 hours with no food and never read her
rights, refused medical treatment, not allowed to bath. It came out in court
today that mother left the private Christian school with her daughter on
May 28th 2004. A pickup order was issued on 6/14/2004. The pick up order
expired 6/14/2005. Did anyone impart that information to you? The mom now
has a copy of the petition and can absolutely prove the allegations sworn
to under oath and signed by the worker Hickey are false and absolute perjury.
This just keeps getting better all the time. She went into court today in
Portland OR and her attorney was not there so she did her own pleadings.
She was prepared. She cited enough case law to bury them all. The state
of OR says the reason they picked up the little girl is because her mother
was being arrested and the mom wouldn’t be there to look after her.
The only problem with this is, again there was no warrant for mom. She was
falsely arrested. Ooops do the police have a problem with this from your
perspective as a police officer? I have a feeling you will be hearing a
whole lot more about this case. Just follow the news accounts and there
will be many as the wheels are already turning at the Michigan House of
Representatives to convene a committee to do a full and complete investigation
into this case and how Midland Co handled it.

Sorry I haven't had time to get these updates to you. Mom
saw little one yesterday. She got pictures. We don't know if she looks like
she does because she has been crying or if it is because they are drugging
her. She says she looks very spacey. Her face seems swollen but not sure
what that is all about. Em told her mother she has not seen a Doctor.
This child was pepper sprayed and they didn't even bother
to take her to a Doctor. Are they waiting for all effects to go away? Without
a doubt that is it.
Mom has filed a lot of paperwork including an injunction in
the Oregon Supreme Court to stop Oregon from sending Em back to Michigan
until a full evidentiary hearing can be held. She is filing charges against
just about everybody in this mess, the police, the prosecutor, the Judge,
the GAL, DHS, and her attorney for all being complicit in denying due process
rights in this whole situation. There is enough paperwork there to bury
them for a while.
Mom told Emily there are 1000s of people praying and fighting
for her return from all over the country. Thanks guys you are all the greatest.
According to the DHS Worker Jeremy D Devros
Emmy is JUST FINE. This kid is miserable, she is being given documents PROVING
she is to return to Michigan.
As we all knew the "secret" hearing Thurs 8/11 was because they
already had someone waiting at the airport to take her. Good ole Judge
Thank God for Will Gaston of a Voice for Children, Susan Detlefsen of TV
Show "Motherinterruped" and Roger Weidner, former prosecutor and
defender of justice and the Constitution for being there along with others
and standing up and speaking in court because I was not there.
Because of them a new hearing was set for Wed 8/ 17. But after 5PM on a
Friday the Court just SUDDENLY changed its schedule and a hearing was scheduled
for Mon 8/15. BUT THEN WE CHILD ABUSERS KNOW ALL ABOUT PHONY HEARINGS AND
It was attempted to not have me attend again. After repeatedly emailing
Jeremy.D.Devros for contact and news of my daughter and even WARNING HIM
I was up to the CPS workers games of saying a visit is going to happen and
then one of the parties is not there. Well it did happen Emily was told
I was to visit her in HER JAIL the very night she was taken and she couldn't
know or understand WHY MOM DIDN'T COME.
So on Monday a PHONY visit was also schedule this time for me away from
the "court" but that backfired as I had ALREADY EMAILED Jeremy.D.Devros@state.or.us
telling him since the hearing was at 1PM I would be not available until
the court time. What he didn't know was that papers were filed in the Supreme
Court of Oregon.
Then 1 PM and what should we be told there were many supporters there -
NO HEARING WAS SCHEDULED - HEARING WAS FOR WED. An assistant prosecutor
walked by and he also confirmed no hearing.
But for not having a hearing it was strange that the principle ACTORS came
CRAWLING OUT OF THE WOODWORK ANYWAY. However no one seemed to know what
was going on. A few people started to leave. And then the "hearing"
if you can call it that started. WE were hearing alright a "judge"
over the phone. Immediately Emily's attorney states "I have met with
my client and she wants the judge to decide where she goes". IN A PIG'S
EYE SHE SAID THAT!
My attorney asks the judge to let her "withdraw" from the case
- HMMM WHAT KIND OF "REPRESENTATION " DO YOU THINK I WILL GET
NOW? Why is it that this attorney has not done one thing the OR BAR ASSOCIATION
HAS MANDATED SHE DO?? What else might this attorney be hiding from her client?
HOW DID Lissa Kaufman's (firstname.lastname@example.org)
LEGAL ASSISTANT KNOW EMILY WAS TO BE RETURNED TO MICHIGAN FOLLOWING THE
HEARING ONE MONDAY? Emily said she was supposed to have been gone but now
she was leaving Thursday (8/18).
WHY has everything that has happened been a lie? There were no warrants,
mom was never charged, the "pick up order" from OR is not signed
and was dated for the DAY AFTER she was picked up, the charges on the OR
"petition" states that mom had warrants and that Emily was only
taken into custody because the mom had been arrested and could not care
for her child. Why was the MI order expired and only JUST RENEWED TODAY
Why is Emily being told she must keep secrets from her mom? Why is someone
pressuring her and bribing her and LITERALLY ATTEMPTING TO BRAINWASH HER
INTO BELIEVING SHE MUST AGREE or accept to go back to MI?
WHY DOES EMILY LOOK SO BAD. SHE HAS NOT HAD A DOCTOR LOOK AT HER AND HER
FACE IS SWOLLEN.
She has either been crying so much or she is being drugged or both. She
could barely keep her eyes open and had a hard time doing a 25 piece puzzle.
She was so stressed at knowing we only had one hour together that she couldn't
keep from watching the clock in fear.
IF she wants the judge to decide WHY DID SHE ASK HER MOM AT LEAST 6 TIMES
WHEN COULD SHE COME HOME?
AND why did she tell her mom she was crying all the time for her?
Now the "judge" Waller Nan.G.Waller@state.or.us had to save face
because she knew everything she was doing. I had only seen those papers
for a few seconds AND I had to insist I see them and get a copy (she was
unwilling at first and tried to stall) I had caught that the order was
expired. My attorney said it didn't mean that.
Everyone who had those papers in front of them and had had them for days
not a few minutes and they couldn't find where the "judge" meant
Ok so now we only got a continuance to Wed less than 2 days with no discovery
and manym many other things and that was so the "judges" Nan.G.Waller@state.or.us
could put their heads together and cook up a NEW scheme.
We only kept Emily here by the skin of our teeth, but into
"court" we go today now. And now they have sent out so many lies
that sure make me sound like I just can't wait to beat my kids. And packed
it with so much foolishness like my whereabouts and other people that I
know. But, hey, why did they issue a search warrant only a couple of months
ago and there was no warrant here? Why did they only send out one police
car then and eleven, yes it was ELEVEN here, and an entire SWAT team with
WHAT WAS SAID BY "judge" ALLEN from Michigan
that made "judge" WALLER make it ok to send in
11 cars of police and decide they DID NOT need a warrant and was complicit
in keeping me away from court and conspiring with "judge" Allen
to attest there was a phony "fugitive" warrant out for me?
So today they are holding a concurrent hearing in both Oregon and Michigan
and connected via telephone - that is a new twist. We really must be special
to be able to d o that
Well today it is before us. Pray for us. Those that have supported us and
have contacted the powers that be that you. For those that support us and
will attend I don't think they will be surprised what comes next but hey
there is always hope.
I drove up to Midland today to be a witness to the debacle
that was called a court hearing. I say debacle because it was basically
pre-determined and a formality. At issue was which state had jurisdiction
Michigan wanted jurisdiction so bad they could taste it. I
thought the Assistant Prosecutor's neck would snap off for as much nodding
she did. Her name is Angelina Renee Scarpelli (email@example.com)
and she was quite young. Oregon was more than happy to rid themselves of
THIS hot potato. Lynnae, Will Gaston, Susan Detlefsen, and Roger Weidner
were all there. This was somewhat of a culture shock for me, because, in
Michigan, court is usually fairly formal and orderly. There are not too
many outbursts that a judge will allow. But in the Oregon court (which we
were connected to via speakerphone) there was virtual pandemonium.
Coupled with the fact that we all couldn't hear that well,
and the appropriate level of hysteria at the other end, made it a very confusing
process. Will's voice rang out several times, and I'm surprised the poor
guy didn't have an aneurism on the spot.
It all turned out how they (the government) wanted it to anyway.
Emily is officially in the Michigan jurisdiction, and I wouldn't be surprised
if she's on her way back at this moment.
I realize that it is not how Lynnae wanted it, but I personally
see a bright side to this. She has some POWERFUL allies here in Michigan
who will make the colluding actors (LGAL Daniel J. Duke
(firstname.lastname@example.org) , Mom's Court
Appointed Attorney John M. Wilson (email@example.com)
, and the DHS workers) run for the hills looking for new jobs. Duke, because
he didn't seem at all concerned about Emily's abuse while in Oregon. Wilson,
because, well, he's going to get fired anyway, so I guess it's of no consequence.
The only other thing worth mentioning is that, when Lynnae
and her pals were chirping on about collusion, conspiracy, etc., the folks
in the conference room (including Judge Allen) got a mild chuckle. I don't
think they'll be chuckling long, because they are too myopic to see what's
coming down the road - a Mack Truck and nowhere to turn. Strangely, a vision
of Star Wars - Return of the Jedi came to mind. You know, the Jabba the
Hutt scene, where it looks like our heroes are about to become monster food,
and Luke pulls it all out of the bag and saves the day. Jabba never saw
And neither will they.
Also, everyone was in open mouthed shock when Susan read the
letter from Emily. It was clearly a, "Oh crap, how are we going to
fight THAT one?"
She was complaining (through a drug induced haze) at the visit
that the pepper spray around her eye still hurt, and asking WHEN she could
go HOME! If THIS isn't CHILD ABUSE, I have no idea what is.
