Judge who granted rapist joint-custody with victim didn’t know about the rape

Published

Christopher Mirasolo

Last week, we reported that Christopher Mirasolo was granted joint-custody of the child his 12-year-old victim had. According to Detroit News, the judge was not aware of the backstory behind the case and has issued a stay of his own ruling, calling for a special hearing on the matter.

Before we get too upset with the judge for negligence, we should consider that it was the duty of the prosecutors who brought the case to court to inform the judge of the circumstances surrounding the custody “battle.” Moreover, we need to reflect on a system that pushes such cases forward when the mother was simply seeking child support and the father was not seeking custody. Why are judgments made on behalf of the state that affect the lives of everyone involved when neither party was seeking the end result?

It’s easy for us to condemn the judge for not asking enough questions, the prosecutors for not presenting the whole story, or the system for being so broken. What’s harder is coming up with solutions for a justice system that is overburdened and undermanned, one that routinely lets criminals off the hook while keeping the innocent behind bars. The good news is that based upon the media highlighting this case and bringing it all to the attention of the judge, this should all end up as it should if the mother is able to get the support she deserves.

Custody case judge says unaware dad was sex offender

http://www.detroitnews.com/story/news/local/michigan/2017/10/11/sex-offender-parental-rights/106525152/Sanilac Probate Judge Gregory Ross has been widely criticized following news reports of last month’s action and faces petitions seeking to overturn his ruling and recall him from office. But according to John Nevin, a spokesman for the state office that oversees courts across Michigan, it was the responsibility of the prosecutor’s office to make sure Ross knew of complications in the case, including that the 8-year-old’s birth resulted from a sexual assault, before bringing a custody consent matter before him.

“There might have not been concerns because she (victim) had consented to a paternity questionnaire and named him as the father,” Nevin said Wednesday. “If no one is questioning who the parents are, then there may not have been concerns that anything was in dispute.

“But (the prosecutor’s office) absolutely had an obligation to provide the judge with information about the father’s convictions, no question,” said Nevin, who said he has talked with Ross.

Sign the petition demanding an investigation of the investigators

Now that Robert Mueller’s investigation into Russian hacking of the 2016 election has been completed and the investigation’s report has been released, we have more questions than we have answers.

Why was it started in the first place? It seems circular reasoning and opposition research were the only pieces of “evidence” used to justify extensive spying on the Trump campaign and the subsequent investigation. This does not clear the threshold of viable suspicion necessary for FISA warrants and clearly was not an appropriate starting point upon which to launch an investigation.

Why was it allowed to continue for so long? The report indicates early on, the investigation saw it was extremely unlikely they would find evidence that the Trump campaign colluded with the Russians. Moreover, the report demonstrates the Russians were acting of their own accord to “hack” the elections, but were unsuccessful in generating enough manipulative propaganda to sway a significant chunk of voters.

Were political motivations at play? At this point, the answer seems obvious. From President Obama’s administration to Hillary Clinton’s presidential campaign to left-leaning elements within the FBI itself, it’s conspicuous that attempts to not only manufacture wrongdoing by candidate Trump but also to hide wrongdoing by candidate Clinton were in full effect.

Two years and $30 million in taxpayer dollars should have yielded answers. It did not. The reason isn’t that there were no answers to be found. It’s that they were looking in the wrong places. It’s time to look in the right places. Sign this petition.

Murder of sexually harassed Bangladeshi student Nusrat Jahan Rafi goes unnoticed by the left

Murder of sexually harassed Bangladeshi student Nusrat Jahan Rafi goes unnoticed by the left

Nusrat Jahan Rafi died because she spoke out against a crime. She was murdered by her fellow Muslim adherents, some of whom were students who were possibly put through the same sexual attacks she was experiencing at the hands of her teacher. Despite this clear representation of the backwards nature of her situation, we have heard nothing from leftist politicians or alleged women’s advocates.

Nothing.

She allegedly being touched inappropriately by the head teacher at her Islamic school and reported it to the authorities. Following the arrest of the teacher, she was lured to the top of a building and told by a large group of burqa-clad individuals who demanded she retract her police report. When she said she wouldn’t, they dowsed her in kerosene and lit her on fire, then tried to make it appear as if she committed suicide in shame.

She survived, recorded a video naming some who attacked her, then died 10 days after the attack.

Opinion

Honor is very much embedded into the teachings of Quran. It’s quite sad that interpretations of what is entailed in honor rarely mean a woman’s right to protect herself or bring justice to those who harm her, particularly in areas where fundamental Islam is practiced and preached.

But what’s really disappointing is the lack of a response by the very people who claim to defend Islam in America. The profess to be opposed to hate crimes, then are silent when crimes like this are committed. Is this not a hate crime? Was this young lady not victimized because of her faith? By those who profess her faith?

The hypocrisy from the left when real victims are harmed is disgusting.

Quote

“Incredibly sad and difficult to share. In my experience, most people don’t want this knowledge, but not talking about these crimes only helps perpetrators.” – Soraya Chemaly

Final Thoughts

Nusrat Jahan Rafi bravery and tragedy are both being ignored by American activists and politicians who claim to be advocates for Muslim women. If this isn’t the type of persecution that should be heard, what is?

Border patrol spots drone used to help illegal immigrants breach the border

Border patrol spots drone used to help illegal immigrants breach the border

Human smuggling has gone high tech. At least it can be verified. At this point, it’s likely people have been using drone technology to assist in getting illegal immigrants across the border for a long time. It’s been used for drug trafficking as well, so thinking this is a new occurrence is likely erroneous.

But now we have proof-positive the efforts to get criminal illegal aliens across the border is a sophisticated operation.

Two of those apprehended were known gang members and one was a convicted sex offender, according to the Border Patrol. They now are being held in U.S. jails pending criminal prosecution.

Opinion

An under-reported challenge facing border patrol is the rise of criminal illegal immigrants crossing the border, sometimes not for the first time. We hear all about the groups of dozens or hundreds of migrants crossing the border and seeking to get apprehended so they can claim asylum and be released into the interior, but what about those who aren’t seeking asylum, who don’t want to be caught, and who are likely part of criminal elements?

Every border patrol agent who is tasked with processing paperwork for the migrants is a border patrol agent taken away from the necessary work of apprehending the criminals crossing over. This is why the use of drone technology is so discouraging. Right now, we have to rely on our technological prowess to cover much of the border. With the bad guys also using technology to thwart these efforts, it makes the already-difficult job of patrolling our border even more difficult and dangerous.

The left needs to understand that not everybody crossing over is just seeking a better honest life. Many are crossing the border for drugs, to join gangs, and even specifically to commit acts of violence against Americans. We need border patrol focusing on catching these bad guys, not serving paperwork to people who are unwilling to wait in line and enter the country legally.

Quote

“Approximately two minutes after the object returned back to Mexico for the third time, a group of 10 subjects made an illegal entry into the U.S. in the same area in which the object had been traveling. This is the first known time in recent history that a drone has been utilized as a ‘look-out’ in order to aid in illegal entries in the El Paso Sector.” – Border Patrol Statement

Final Thoughts

With so much time, money, and manpower used by border patrol to apprehend the migrants wanting to be caught, those who don’t want to get caught have the advantage. These are the dangerous elements not seeking asylum. They seek to do harm.
