This message is from my good friend and sister blogger, Mama Liberty, who is being harrassed and stalked by abuser dad CRAIG HENSBERGER. He is now attempting to have Mama Liberty thrown in jail because their daughter does not want to return to Dad's house, where she was forced to sleep on the floor because Dad can't be bothered to provide a bed for her. But as far as neglect and abuse goes, this was just the tip of the iceberg. It always is....
Mama Liberty has pledged that if she is incarcerated for refusing to let her daughter be neglected and abused, she will be going on a hunger strike for justice. Mama Liberty is an amazing mother and fierce advocate for her child. She has all my prayers and best wishes. Give 'em hell, Mama!
I truly relate to her plight, because when my daughter's father had custody, she slept where ever she could, too. Mostly because a lot of the floor space at her dad's house was taken up by animal cages. And what space wasn't occupied by animal cages was filthy with animal feces or garbage. This went on for years, because our family court in Chautauqua County, New York looked the other way, too.
This email is in case I go to jail and my husband, Chad Tipton, will be able to communicate with you.
I have done nothing wrong, but try to protect my daughter against a flawed system and now I am prepared to be possibly jailed for my crime, "protection" . If I am incarcerated for this I want to bring awareness to the Family Court system by standing up against it, I need help.
I have been involved in several groups of other mothers who have been in my same situation and some that have lost more horribly than I, with their children dying at the hands of their father. We have a common thread of nightmares of cold, uncaring court officials.
Family Court throws women and children off of the sinking ship of custody disputes with an abusive man. They continue to make the wheels of abuse go round and round. I have been ignored, chastised, intimidated and now I am not going to take it anymore. I will not allow my daughter or I become a statistic.
All my friends and family will agree with me that the characteristic I most employ is strength and the will to do what is right.
I am a mother who is helping her child in pain, to comfort my child and keep her safe, I am no different than any other loving mother who would also never allow their child to be hurt or tormented by a man who is suppose to love and protect her or anyone else for that matter.
I have been stalked in Family Court by my ex abuser, Craig Hensberger. His court actions against me have escalated since I met and married my best friend, the man of my dreams, my husband, Chad Tipton. Now that I have found true happiness I am certain that my ex abuser is not as happy and since he can no longer abuse me the way he use to, he now resorts to several devious tactics towards our daughter, Michaela.
My ex abuser has now taken another action to have me jailed for contempt as our daughter does not want to live with him and his mother. My child has admitted that they make her sleep on the floor in the living room or the basement.
My daughter is 11 yrs old who is leaving adolescence, she is a pre-teen, she is a young woman who needs to have her own room and bed, like she does here.
My ex abuser continues to accuse that I have "brainwashed" our daughter against him. That all the abuse she witnessed against her and myself are a distant memory. That the time that she was videotaped by a child advocacy center and told about the way that he would touch her inappropriately and where and how many times is just a lie. This man has done nothing but lie, cheat and steal to make my life and his daughter's living hell. Including fraudulently signing her up to win money in a fishing derby.
I intend to stand up once again in Marinette County Family Court with presiding Judge David Miron. I am hoping that my plea for the court to help protect my child from the ongoing harassment and abuse. She does not want to be forced to live with her abuser, I do not blame her, I've been there. I intend to expose the insanity of Family Court and how a mother can be jailed or punished for allowing my child to stay in a stable, sober, loving environment.
All that know me I mean what I say and I say what I mean. If on September 24, 2009 at 10:00am I am required to appear before Judge Miron to answer why my daughter has once again refused visitation I will, with dignity and respect, fight for what is right. If this judge follows through with his threat that the next time a motion of contempt was brought before him I would be "put in jail" and that if our daughter was so stressed and having emotional problems that maybe she does need to be placed in foster care.
If jailed I will not take food until the judge releases me, I will hunger strike for justice.
I hope that my family, friends, and other advocates will also help expose by contacting local Green Bay TV media as well as national.
My husband, Chad, can be reached at ottobooboo@yahoo. com or (920) 785-0328. He is in possession of several documents and recordings proving the corruption of a small county with a God Complex, which is also a non-clinical term that does not appear in the DSM but neither does the pseudo scientific theory, Parental Alieanation Syndrome (PAS) or "brainwashing" from which I am accused.
I thank each and everyone of you that have advocated for me in the past and hope for your continued support as I face a fight for life, me and my daughters'.
With Good Grace,
a.k.a. Mama Liberty
