Michael Volpe Investigates: On Action Radio Talking Court Reform and More

“I appeared on Action Radio this week to talk about reforming family courts with several victims of family court. We come on in the third hour. The ladies who joined me talked about providing training for judges, particularly in learning to recognize domestic violence.

This is something I steadfastly oppose.

I said on the program, “if judges need to be trained, then the problem is how we train judges.” There have been many laws popping up in the US- Greyson’s Law, Kayden’s Law, Kyra’s Law, and others- which include some form of training for family court judges. I noted in the broadcast that a new law, Piqui’s Law, is moving through the state legislature in California right now which also includes training for judges.

The problem is that training for judges means more money put into the system. Most judicial training is useless like the junket I covered in North Carolina.

The problem has never been that judges lack training; instead, judges enjoy too much power…”

Justice For All Task Force – Michigan-Detroit, February 24, 2020

Brave Michigan Survivors of Domestic & Legal Abuse confront the reality that Mothers are not allowed to protect their children from abusive fathers, despite overwhelming, irrefutable evidence of abuse by the father.  That “father’s rights” trumps all, child safety, health & well-being doesn’t matter, the right of children to have their Mothers parent them doesn’t matter, the rights of Mothers to their own children do not matter in Michigan.  None of it matters and it must change now!!!!
