“I don’t want to see daddy!”
Little Greyson in video, crying
Little Greyson’s mom, Ali, was doing what the Family Court judge mandated last Father’s Day: making him visit his abusive father and trying to make him feel OK about it. He was murdered by his father on a visit last month.
Little Greyson knew he was not safe with his father and begged his mother to not make him go, but Ali did not have the power to protect him.
Women must have the power to do what they believe is in their children’s best interest, even if that means keeping them away from their father. Custody cases must be removed from Family Court and a jury be the fact finder, not a judge.
The power to keep and protect children is provided for in the Child Custody Act [CCA] through a code in which the child's primary attachment figure, mother or father, has final decision-making power. Also, if the jury finds that the father has been abusive by preponderance of evidence, he would be restricted to supervised visits.
If the CCA had been implemented, Little Greyson would probably still be alive today.
As soon as we have a more powerful coalition, we will be demanding the CCA be implemented.

Cindy Dumas, M.A. has been researching, writing, and raising awareness about the Custody Crisis since 2003, when she was unable to protect her children from their abusive father. She fled into hiding when Family Court failed her and was tricked into returning home, when her children were given to their abusive father.
