Dec. 2 2004 To: The Honorable Wilson RE: Case No.

96D217 ‘Requesting relief at the mercy of the Court’ A Mothers Desperate request to seek Justice where none is to be found.

On December 1, 2004, via cell phone, I was contacted by the GAL who had stated that my Safe-Visit with my daughter was cancelled that was scheduled for that very evening.…stating that Rikki had called her the night before at her home…..as Rikki had a girlscout dinner and that Rikki would like for me to attend. GAL further stated that she had discussed this with Hal and he agreed to let me….and that he would not be in attendance. My visit was cancelled, and no make up visit was re-scheduled. Again the GAL called and told me Hal would not be there…and that she had been out to Hal’s house just last week…and again Hal will not be there...and Then for a third time, 10miutes after the 2nd call, the GAL called me again and said she had ”… just got done talking with Hal and he would be there after all.” At this dinner Rikki came with her father his girlfriend and her two kids. Rikki stayed with her dad and his live-in girlfriend…through the buffet line and sat at he table with them during the dinner…..again….I was made to feel as an outcast…..with people staring at me as Hal was talking to them….this is all on video tape……my camcorder….my only allies, in a school where I was once considered a very wonderful mom of a very beautiful girl……..now……I am an outcast in my daughters life…..not by her choice……but by the intimidation of her father…..as he has already proven to her that he is in control…..and that he will never allow me to be a significant part of her life. The Live in girlfriend has a daughter 12 years old in 6th grade and a son 14 years old in 8th grade, they all live in the same house as Rikki and the older boy and girl sleep in a room together in bunk beds….as Rikki is considered to be my dependent and is entitled to my Social Security benefits….of which Hal is the payee of $412.00 A MONTH…. This guarantees Rikki the right to her own room…..so in order to keep my daughters benefits…and for him to remain her payee of said benefits, Hal made the two older children stay in and share the only bedroom left in that house. I know that there are ordinances prohibiting this….yet…it appears as usual that Hal is above any laws…..as he has already shown time and time again. A worthy note here is that the 14 year old boy is ADD, very prone to violence as the schools records will show and has been investigated for sexual abuse towards my daughter Rikki, now 9 years old. Her Birthday, December 12, 2004. The same Birthday to which the attached e-mail references….Rikki’s Birthday party on Friday to which there will now be none…..”..Let’s not single her out.”….better to just rescind all parenting time, and keep mom away from daughter as much as legally possible” I am being denied all rights as a parent and Rikki’s rights to be with her mom during any holidays and or birthdays…..Again…. based on false allegations. Hal’s intimidating and forceful hand has even ordered the principal of Rikki’s school Mr. Hippe that stated certain other parents who have children in the same school that know both Rikki and I were to”…… stay away from Rikki because they know me”….therefore if this being the case, then a significant number of parents are banned from speaking with me or my daughter…yet Swartz has the audacity to state that Rikki does not like being singled out….even on her birthday…..something that Rikki herself….requested I do for her as this honors her and makes her “day” her birthday especially her 10th birthday a special day indeed. Hal Richardson and Mr. Swartz would rationalize that ignoring Rikki instead and deflate what little self esteem she had, a special day to be shared with her friends as well.

Mr. Swartz is very wrong in his statements to the point of it being detrimental to the psychological health of a young lady who is turning 10, do not single her out, do not make her feel special….and to ostracize her mother from her life. This is supposed to be in the best interest of the child…? I think not.

Case Manager-Lloyd SwartzWithout substantial evidence rescinded my visitation for more than 9 months. Simply because an 8 time criminally convicted batterer stated lies that were automatically considered gospel and without even asking me about the allegations…pulled the visitation. This has been the norm since the case manager was appointed to the case…. Time and time again I asked the presiding judge for an opportunity to present evidence which would refute and lay to rest the obvious lies and intentional distortions by the petitioner. And time and time again…still to this date I have been denied the right to a hearing. GAL- Jill DykesExtremely to comfortable as she herself stated “ visit at Hal’s house, and late night phone calls.” Very cozy and comfortable stating that she was out to Hal’s house last week and they have her home phone so that they, or Rikki can call her at anytime….Conflict of interest has already been established by her relationship with Rene Netherton and Scott McKenzie….the line of professionalism has clearly ceased to exist as if it ever did.

RESULTMy parenting time with my daughter has been rescinded, and the games continue, whenever Hal says “jump” the case manager and Gal alike say how high.…and then again Rikki and I lose what little ground we have gained, by jumping through every circus hoop that the case manager Hal and the Gal ask us to in order to co-operate with the process…then when we get close to ending or resolving this need for supervised visitation, then ‘bam’ Hal cries foul, makes up yet another story and sets the progress back and again I am falsely accused without representation and without due process………Rikki and I are punished again….. This is the purest and blatantly cruelest case of parental interference that I have ever been privy to. “The Best interest of the child rule has never been applied to this case….it has ALWAYS been the best interest of the Abuser”……and it still is……He is a self admitted and convicted batterer with 8 CR convictions of violence including battery of an L.E.O. And a noted Substance abuser as evidenced by his Court Commitment to SARP r/t his battery of a law Enforcement Officer...And in Judge Buchle’s Order stating that Hal was to abstain from alcoholic consumption four hour prior to visitation and during visitation with Rikki. (The original Divorce Decree) I have NO criminal convictions of any kind, nor do I have or ever had a problem with substance abuse. Time and time again Judge Bruns for this past year has stated over and over that both parent are considered to be fit and able to care for there child…again…I ask…. Why...am I not allowed to be my daughters mother…? And why is the father still able to use the Courts Officers to foster his own agenda to intentionally drive a little girl’s mom out of her life…?…The Best interest of the abuser…?…..No one else’s better interest except for the Court appointed officers who are making money by the hour hand over hand to prolong and continue the torture and punishment of 2 innocent people… a little girl and her mother.

I have been forced out of my home and out of the State to seek protection as the Case Manager and others appointed to this case have said that the beatings I received by Hal during visitation exchanges, is part of co-parenting, and that by my seeking a PFA, I was being UN-co-operative with co parenting and that I would lose even more rights to my daughter….finally in January 2004, I could take no more. And I fled the state abandoning EVERYTHING….I received a Full Order of Protection from the State of Missouri…..I might add that Missouri is appalled at this whole case…..everyone from the media to court officials and crisis centers are appalled…..Gene Schmidt the victims rights coordinator of the Kansas Attorney General Office is appalled and is amazed at how ANY of this could have happened to begin with anyway, victims being re victimized by the very courts that are there to protect them…. ….see his attached e-mail…..in fact the ONLY people that are not appalled are those who are the ones enabling the abuser to continue to control and isolate…not only mom, but now Rikki who is isolated completely .I am appalled that my daughter was being taught that violence is appropriate behavior…… I could only give her one thing…..example…..that this is wrong….beatings are not a family value….and take away her guilt as I WAS ONLY BEING BEAT DURING VISITATION EXCHANGES…..THEREFORE…her guilt was tremendous I saw it in her eyes…….I did only what I could do ….the only gift I could give her at this point…….that violence is wrong. And again stop the trauma that she had to go through. In order to see her mother. I only wish I were exaggerating…Unfortunately…. I am minimizing…. The brutality of the physical, financial and judicial abuse is mind boggling. A horror story that is real, a nightmare to which Rikki and I can not awake from. It is with the above and so much more that I wish to have an informal hearing as soon as possible, The Honorable Bruns refused to hear any matters on this case, or to remove the Case manager and or GAL, as he wanted to leave that up to the new Courts to which this case would be transferred. I am not wanting to get into a big debate about the removal of the above-mentioned parties at this time, however, it would be nice. My immediate concern lies with my daughter and the intentional harm that is being inflicted upon her…under the guise of the best interest of the child. By the petitioner who continues to manipulate the officers to which are assigned to this case and to the school administration that feel threatened enough by Hal to issue there own verbal warnings to other caring parents, because Hal told them to. Again keeping in mind that this entire past year Judge Bruns himself has stated clearly in several letter decisions and Orders, that “Both parents are considered fit by the Court, and that supervised visitation is rarely considered to be a long term solution.” It is with the Honorable Bruns letters and orders that I seek reprieve for my daughter and my self…..Please release us from the bondage and allow us to spend some time together during the holidays, I implore her honor to stop this game playing with two very real lives and allow a daughter and mom to be just that. I apologize to the Court if the tone of this letter is disrespectful in anyway, this is not my intent. I am simply a mother who is very frustrated by the continued process of the constant separation, physically and psychologically between a daughter and her mother, for no reason but to further the agenda of a father/abuser who must maintain his ‘control’ of others lives, even to the detriment of his own daughter.
