Family Court Judge Threatens Deployed Submariner With Loss of Custody and Issues Arrest Warrant

by W.F. Price on June 21, 2014

I’d like to file this under “things that would never happen to a woman.” A family law judge in Michigan, otherwise known as a kidnapper in a robe, has ordered Matthew Hindes, a man who is serving somewhere deep under the waves on a classified mission, to show up in her courtroom. If he doesn’t, she’ll issue a bench warrant and reassign custody to the child’s mother, who was judged unfit by child protective services. First, I have to say that for a woman to be declared an unfit mother, she has to be really lousy. It doesn’t happen all that often. You know all those kids you hear about dying from neglect? Often, their mothers had already been evaluated by CPS and found “fit” — sometimes on multiple occasions.

I have seen the rare creature known as the noncustodial mother in court. One in particular I remember because she didn’t look all that bad in person. However, when she opened her mouth in front of the judge and made every excuse in the book for failing heroin tests and violating probation time after time, it was pretty clear why she lost the kid. Evidently, it’s kind of hard to take care of your child when you’re in jail.

Although it’s unclear what exactly led to the sailor’s ex losing custody, the Michigan judge has declared that if the child is not presently in the custody of the father, she must be returned to the mother post-haste. The stepmother is currently taking care of the girl, and while that isn’t ideal, given the CPS action it’s probably a safer situation.

But the judge doesn’t care. In fact, she doesn’t even care that a law called the Service Members Civil Relief Act was passed explicitly to protect men like Hindes. According to the law, Hindes is entitled to a 90-day stay of proceedings, but judge Margaret Noe has ruled that this law doesn’t apply, because, in her opinion, he should have handed the child over to her (unfit) mother before he set foot on a submarine.

This case says a lot about the value of serving one’s country today. If a family court judge – some gussied up divorce lawyer in a robe – can ignore laws meant to protect him while deployed and order his arrest because, you know, he should teleport back from under the arctic icepack or wherever, then what’s the point?

“This case says a lot about the value of serving one’s country today.”

This case also says that it isn’t worth fathering a kid today either. I realize that your wife is pregnant, but as far as I’m concerned, this judge has just made it clear that fatherhood is no longer worth it.

I see this as turning out unpleasantly for that stupid, female judge. The military does at times take care of its soldiers. And, the Relief act specifically prohibits this nonsense. Even for vile, vicious men like all of us.

I was PO’d as much as anyone when I first read this story, but digging a little deeper it appears the sailor was ordered to do this before setting out. Additionally, he failed to communicate the issue with his CO. Regardless, I still think the judge is playing “hardball” with the sailor, and really wonder if the roles were reversed what she would have done (we all know the answer to that). And giving custody to a person (irregardless of sex) that has already been shown to be an incompetent caregiver is insane.

This is why women need to be required to register for the draft, and be required to serve if needed. This female judge has not experienced an “equal world” yet, and needs some background in what it means to be a disposable person in this society. Males know this, and a male judge would have handled this differently.

That is the key there, giving custody to a woman who was found unfit, something that takes real enthusiasm to be a bad parent, though it is easy for men, ala Thomas Ball.

But, when a man is in the military, he does not own his own time. So, who said he was ordered and didn’t go? Was he allowed to go by the military?

No, this is a judge who is P.O.’d because a man did not instantly obey, and is willing to put a child in harms way to punish him. There are a lot of judges like that.

Physical Care should remain with the step mom, and the man should be ordered to jail when he comes back, for the contempt of violating an order to appear earlier if found to be true. Then if he loses his military job then that is probably deserved.

This is simple. You don’t put a child in harm’s way to punish an adult.

Hot debate. What do you think? Thumb up 17 Thumb down 3

“giving custody to a person (irregardless of sex) that has already been shown to be an incompetent caregiver is insane”

Not insane if you’re a feminist. Judges give mothers in *prison* custody of children, because some women’s jails have childcare facilities. Even an incarcerated mother is deemed better than a man.

“Legal Services” on base is a misnomer and does nothing for the servicemember.
Their sole function is to enforce court orders AGAINST servicemembers. This ensures that paychecks are garnished for child support for non-existent children. This enforces non-existent alimony from forged documents while GI’s are overseas. It forces Gi”s to cover bounced checks from ex-spouses at exchanges.
All of this (and worse) is “Legal”.

Well, who else is going to take care of the kid if he’s away. She’s in Washington while the former incompetent wife has filed this in Mich. I don’t believe that this judge even has jurisdiction in the case.

The quality of the judges in Family Court is right there at the bottom and equivalent to Small Claims. The better judges are either in the Law Division-Civil or in the Criminal Division.

btw, that Service Act just says MAY as far as the stay which is why the judge is getting away with this.

This sort of thing is why :

1) Men should not join the military anymore
2) The Republican party is no longer worthy of support. If they do not obstruct this sort of thing, then what good are they?

Think beyond California. Dems are the only party in town in CA, and Repubs in Texas. We’re devolving into a couple nations right now, but if you’re smart you can take advantage of that with targeted contributions/campaigns.

Such people do not deserve the protections offered by a country’s military. Any rational society would consider this judge to be a traitor.

What good is a 90-day stay of proceedings for deployments that can last 6 months? If anything the law to protect him doesn’t go far enough.

The judge should be removed from the bench for blatantly ignoring the law like this.

I have observed that America’s laws are extremely easy to change. All you need are a few grievances, ability to make some noise, and some money.
Blacks have successfully changed the law to get rid of injustice, real or perceived. Gays have done the same. The NRA has and is doing the same. The feminists have done the same. Men can do the same too.
If men band together during elections and make it an issue that family courts, divorce laws, etc be changed in specific ways, it will be done. All we need is to take clear issues to the candidates, and force them to take a public stand. Knowing politicians for who they are, they will cave.
The battle against feminism will never be won in the law courts, but at the ballot boxes.

Bill
The problem with targeted contributions/campaigns is that we would have to storm the castle walls to gain an audience with the King .Remember McCain’s remarks about not touching family court issues with a ten foot pole.
If you want to storm something how about a concerted effort to get some talk radio exposure. It may take a dozen guys two weeks to get through to the host, but Limbaugh sounds like a closet MRA to me. He did coin the term femi-nazi, right. He also takes e mails. More than a few times I could swear he lifted stories right from here.

Amazingly horrible judgette. She’s a disgrace. Another problem with the judgette’s farcical order to show up or face contempt is that it’s not like you can just call up someone at a moment’s notice on a active Navy ship and let them know what’s going on back home. Contact between those shipboard members and their families is really limited and time delayed with communications censored for security reasons. For submariners, thrice so. I’d wager there’s at least a two week time delay for anyone on that sub receiving any sort of message from a loved one. So the poor bastard isn’t going to hear about this BS from the judgette until sometime in early July. Of course, he’ll miss the date to avoid the contempt charge and loss of custody of his daughter.

Of course, thanks to the judgette when this guy does find out you’ll have a sailor more stressed out and distracted from his duties which reduce efficiency, combat readiness, and increases risks to the entire crew depending upon his duties.

Feminism is going to get even more people killed.

Off subject. . . I was going to watch _300: Rise of an Empire_ and go to bed. Yes, the first one was nothing more than a racist piece of twaddle but the action was nice. I figured this would be the same, but no. Rise of an Empire is nothing but feminist propaganda.

Is there any MRA site doing movie reviews and breaking down the feminist/misandrist elements. . .or have I just figured out what I’m going to do with my masculinemedia.com domain name?

Sadly, I don’t have time for such an epic vision but maybe if I slap together a framework some the guys here can contribute or The-Spearhead and start focusing on Hollywood. Reviews of Hollywood movies would be great for grabbing fresh hits from the search engines too, I would imagine.

[The disHonorable Margaret Noe ’75 served as an assistant prosecuting attorney for more than 20 years, working to prosecute neglect and abuse cases. In 2005 she was appointed Lenawee Circuit Court probate judge by Michigan Gov. Jennifer Granholm. Many of the cases she has presided over involve children and family issues]

This stinking dog of a judge has always had an AGENDA, which she has been able to work at religiously under the protected and covered status of US. Judiciary and US. Judicial discretion.

But the stinking dog doesn’t register in her brain, that her physical protections and her protected legal status derive from, and are sustained by the selfless actions of US. sub-marina-males and other US. male service personnel whom keep the brutal enemies of her country at bay in very far off places. That is such that she may continue to pretend at being a Court Judge.

This matter would have been worth requesting public issue of an EXECUTIVE ORDER by the POTUS, but even the office of POTUS has itself been subverted to the same AGENDA of this stinking dog of a judge. That is, an agenda to spread parasitic socialism by which weak, dissolute, corrupt, intemperate and degenerate persons may fatten themselves at the public treasury at expense of the strong, the honest, the upstanding, the patriotic, the loyal, the godly and the forthright.

All SOVEREIGN american men reading this should now see clearly if they did not see before, how and why compulsory selective service registration is not for them and why compulsory selective service DUTIES can never ever apply to themselves. This so called Constitutional Republic is no such thing but a Cleptocrat’s-Bazaar of vote selling swindlers and power hungry charlatans, each servicing dependent fiefdoms, constituent liars, parasites, thieves, beggars and more officials after fake jobs for real State fees.

A man whom isn’t a fool ALWAYS refuses to serve THIS type of society and political set-up that only seeks to use and abuse him, in return for nothing but personal humiliation, injury or death.

These godforsaken bastards in office and bureaucracy not only handicap us and society by their malfeasances, they also recklessly indent our children to servitude by extracting unlimited, unsustainable amounts from the public treasury and then borrowing international credit in our name to pay this their unwanted State service fees. Does all this not weaken and destroy home nations from within socially, morally, ethically and economically?

I know why I hate these people without limit. And I also know why others too must hate these people without limit as well. The consequential effects of these peoples and their actions now and on future generations is already clear.

So…where are all the big Defenders of Marriage on this? The Maggie Gallagher / Bill Bennett / National Review crew? The self-congratulatory Saviours of American Marriage? Why aren’t the trumpeting the injustice of this, offering pro-bono legal assistance or other useful action that would serve to highlight the unfairness of anti-Family court, would serve to actually defend an individual man, etc.?

Maybe they’re all too busy foaming at the mouth over homosexual marriage to actually, y’know, defend marriage?
