I've written an allocution which I've kept just in case the day came when I

needed to use it. It is a conglomeration of your stuff (hope you don't mind)

and my stuff which I've put together to express my outrage at this little man

whith little character.

Anyway, I've sent it out to 3 senators and they have responded to me. (my PO


I've also sent it to various newspapers out here under the pretext of "an

anonymous father". It was printed in the letters to the editor column in one

of them and for a few days was the talk of the town! Just wanted to share this

with you. People do listen, just got to get stuff out there in front of them.

"An Anonymous Father "

You say that you are imprisoning me for contempt of court. You are lying. You

are imprisoning me for debt, in violation of the law which you have sworn to

uphold. You are denying me my right to be tried by a jury of my peers, which

are divorced males, in violation of Article III, section 2 of the Bill of

Rights, which you have sworn to uphold indisputably. You have denied my right

to due process, and my God given rights as a parent and human being.

Alexander Hamilton once said: "The sacred rights of mankind are not to be

rummaged for among old parchments or musty records. They are written as with a

sunbeam in the whole volume of nature, by the hand of the divinity himself;

and as such, can never be erased by any mortal power". Yet you act as if I

have no rights or sacred covenant to my child.

I say to you, you have no business assuming responsibility for my daughter,

and that in taking that responsibility upon yourself and placing her in a

fatherless home in the custody of a parent incapable of providing for her, you

and this state are responsible for her welfare. By placing her in a fatherless

home, you are placing her in jeopardy where her likelihood of becoming a

delinquent and going to prison is higher by 8 times, to commit suicide by 5

times, to have behavioral problems by 20 times, to become a rapist by 20

times, to run away by 32 times, to abuse chemical substances by 10 times, to

drop out of high school by 9 times, to be seriously abused by 33 times, to be

fatally abused by 73 times, to be one tenth as likely to get A's in school, to

have a 72% lower standard of living, and to be 10 times more likely as

children from a father-headed household to be in a juvenile prison. This is

child abuse! You helped destroy my family by permitting such reprehensible

behavior as adultery, lying under oath, and making false accusations to

bolster an abusive pattern of irresponsibility to go unanswered by this court,

and now you are trying to shift your responsibility for this onto me by

blaming me for the law's incompetence to protect my child, and for the fact

that I am unable to support two households with an income sufficient only for


I^Òve come here seeking relief through wisdom, temperance and justice, yet I^Òam

met with a tempest of sanctimonious gavel pounding and inequity. You say that

I must respect the law, yet respect is something that is of great merit and

must be uniformly conveyed by both partners in any relationship for it to

truly work harmoniously. You hide behind a veil of ambiguous laws and personal

ideology in your disposition of what is deceptively proffered as justice. Your

indifference to the system you represent troubles me greatly sir. Injustice

offends my philosophic sensibilities and moral character. It deprives people

of they^Òre dignity through apathy and esoteric terminology. It is a parasite

that leech^Òs on the defining attributes that were breathed into all men by our


In the words of Frederick Douglass; "Where justice is denied, where poverty is

enforced, where ignorance prevails, and where any one class is made to feel

that society is in an organized conspiracy to oppress, rob, and degrade them,

neither persons nor property will be safe."

You want to know what my trouble is sir? My trouble is that by ignoring the

unlawful and ungodly behavior of adultery, by allowing clearly false

accusations and dishonest statements under oath to go unpunished, and by

neglecting to prosecute all the other contemptible behavior before this court,

you have helped destroy yet another family; my family. And in doing so you^Òve

destroyed the very system of motivation which formerly made me a productive,

financially stable and useful member of society - and are now about to make me

a convict who can contribute nothing to society.

My trouble is the same trouble as that of millions of other American fathers

that you and the other members of your profession are, by destroying more than

half of America's families each year, are destroying the very basis of our

country^Òs social and economic well-being. My trouble is that you and your

fellow judges imagine that by raging and pulling tantrums at responsible,

respectable, and moral father^Òs like myself, you can compensate for the damage

you are inflicting upon our society by your own weakness of character, your

own lawlessness in refusing to keep your oath of office and administer justice

impartially, and your lack of cognitive skill.

You may consider that my daughter didn't ask to be brought into the world. I

say to you that she didn't ask to be ripped from a two-parent family where she

was decently provided for by me, and placed by you in a situation where she is

at higher risk of being impoverished, and at an even greater risk of

delinquency and educational failure.

You act as if my daughter is rummaging in garbage cans. It is because you

placed her in a situation that would expose her to such a predicament. She

never rummaged in garbage cans when she was in my care. may imagine that your demonstration of indignation towards me is

beneficial to the State of New Jersey. But let me remind you that it will cost

the state between $20,000 and $25,000 to imprison me for a year. During this

time my estranged wife and my child will be on public support. During this

time I will earn nothing and will therefore be withdrawing another $25,000

worth of productivity from the New Jersey economy. My company will be shut

down and it^Òs employees will then also be dependent on state support as well .

Furthermore, my future employability will be extremely impaired once I have a

jail record. And when I get out, I^Òll most likely have no drivers license to

seek employment! I will be paying no taxes for the next year and reduced taxes

in the future--perhaps none at all, since I may find myself driven into the

underground economy, or compelled to leave this state in order to escape your


Your concern sir, is not as you pretend, for the best interests of my child.

You never lost thirty seconds of sleep over my daughter, or any of the other

children, you placed in fatherless households where they are far more likely

to be impoverished, delinquent, and experience acute developmental problems.

Your concern is merely to practice cheap judicial chivalry at my expense and

to preserve a mindless legal "rule-of-thumb" which will save you the necessity

of performing the duty for which you receive your salary. The duty of

administering impartial justice and of thinking about what you routinely do

when you destroy families and place children in fatherless households without

any regard for the consequences.
