With the #metoo movement appearing to move the court of public away from the 14th Amendment “Innocent Until Proven Guilty” to “Guilty Until Proven Innocent” — we looked at this particular we research into the motives of those making false allegations in rape cases. Here is what the research concluded:
Reasons given for making intentional False Rape Claims:
- Providing an alibi
- Seeking revenge
- Obtaining Sympathy and Attention

Most Protective Mums will go underground or into hiding as soon as a Family Law Court ordered psychiatric evaluation or Trial begins to uncover possible undiagnosed mental conditions about the mum. Cassie Doubleday and her supporters have proclaimed professional like Dr. Freda Briggs testifying on the Internet about her case, but have these or any professionals evaluated Cassie for a form of Munchausen Syndrome by Proxy, a condition often associated with protective mums. Is she intentionally telling saying her children are abused when she is in fact the abuse? Would bias-professionals like Dr. Freda Briggs be intentionally ruling out a mental illness like this to promote Brigg’s own professional agenda.
Parental Kidnapper Cassie Doubleday Arrested
We have also seen letters from the child posted on the Internet by Cassie Doubleday’s supporters. These letters are a common tactic by protective parent attorneys to inject false testimony from the minor child into the case. That in itself is an invasion of the minor’s privacy and a form of child abuse. These letters always contain words and phrases not typically used by a child. In this case, a minor does not typically talk about fighting for her or his freedom — that sounds like language a protective mum would use.
It sounds like the Townsville Family Law Court got this case right and that it is now time for Cassie Doubleday to seek the mental health treatment she needs. Is she crazy, it’s apparent many very highly qualified professionals do.

Reporters Jenny Noyes and Patrick Begley of the Sydney Morning Herald interviewed Cassie Doubleday’s parents Heather and Arthur Doubleday. They wrote that Heather and Arthur claimed that they heard from Cassie for the first time in four years. Furthermore, they gave the Doubledays a platform for saying they would seek custody of these children that were kidnapped for four years.
In these Protective Parent Cases, the parental kidnapper and her supporters usually have at least one reporter that is willing to provide a one-sided or bias story. In this case those reporters are Jenny Noyes and Patrick Begley of the Sydney Morning Herald.
First of all the idea that Heather or Arthur Doubleday did not know where their daughter was for the last four years is ludicrous and insulting to the plight of parental kidnapping victims which include the searching parents and their families. At the very least the Doubledays should have been asked if they expected to be charged as third party conspirators to this crime. They should have been asked if they were going on the record stating they had no way of contacting Cassie when she was in hiding and they provided any financial assistance to their daughter or grandchildren. And if not, why not? What horrible and unfit grandparents if they didn’t even send Christmas or Birthday Gifts!
The Sydney Morning Herald Editor needs to assign more professional journalists to this news story. Their coverage of this kidnapping story is a horrible example of today’s agenda-based or fake news.

Australian Mum: Cassie Watter Arrested
In May of 2014, Protective Mum Cassie Doubleday was on the run in the Australian Protective Parent Underground as her family and friends and supporters cheered on this Facebook page. In that post, they have the audacity and cruelty to say: “Relatives of missing Townsville twin girls Isabella and Bronte Watter, 7, who have been missing for six weeks today, are hoping the children and their mother Cassie Watter are not found.”
What Cassie Doubleday did in 2014 is one of the cruelest forms of child maltreatment. It is not only cruel to the children but the father, the father’s family as well as the children’s young friends and classmates. Cassie has many other legal remedies but her own narcissism and that of her friends and supporters caused this criminal act against innocent children.
Cassie Doubleday is out on bail today and wears a ankle bracelet. There is little doubt that the Australian Courts will find her guilty and she will be sentenced to prison. What the courts need to do is not only protect the children involved in this case until they reach the age of majority but they need to send a clear message to others to deter the heinous criminal act of child stealing. As the Protective Parent Movement in Australia attempts to use Cassie Doubleday for their cause — Australians should know better that child stealing is not the solution to Family Custody disputes.

In America we have watched the Protective Parent Movement from the early ’80s. It took over 30 years with the Sandra Rucki Case that would later send three third party accomplices to jail before the U.S. legal system would take a major stop to shut this group down.

U.S. Protective Parent Dorothy Lee Barnett, a Convicted Felon
As information is starting to surface about the Cassie Watters Case, it seems apparent that she was more than likely supported by some of the same supporters of Dorothy Lee Barnett. Maybe even Dorothy Lee Barnett herself. The allegations with false reports, child’s drawings and support from characters like Townsville University Professor Dr. Frida Briggs are all very similar to the Protective Parent Movement in the United States. Only the names have changed. The support of some of the Domestic Violence Groups is also not surprising in this new era of coparenting and joint custody.
Law Enforcement should have a great deal of digital evidence against Cassie Doubleday’s family members especially her parents. There is no doubt that this case for the benefit of these young children needs to be de-escalated and what has been found in these other cases is that charging third party accomplices helps move the case in that direction. It is unfortunate that all protective moms know that once they kidnap their children, they will never have unsupervised custody time with their children again. And despite any short-sighted thinking by anyone that these children were not harmed by the abduction — Can anyone possibly imagine what this protective mum told her two daughters the days after she kidnapped her children from their school? They no doubt cried that they missed their school, their father, their friends and their family. It has been said that Family Abduction is one of the cruelest forms of child maltreatment. That reality has been explained in Family Abduction Criminal Trials throughout America that has sent these protective moms to prison.
Cassie Doubleday’s Supporters and Cassie’s parents think that these girls story deserves to be heard in the media. In our opinion, that is a form of child abuse. Cassie and her accomplices must be put on trial, found guilty and sentenced to prison until her children reach the age of majority — because that’s the only way Australia can protect these and future Australian children from this crime.
Finally, there is a really horrible last alternative that has been over dramatized in a small number of Protective Parent Cases. That’s the alternative of murder suicide. They would rather kill themselves and their children then let their former spouse have custody.
It’s strongly suggested that Cassie and her supporters disassociate themselves with this proclaimed Protective Parent Movement from America and re-focus on issues further improving Australia’s Child Protection and Family Court System. Get this case out of the media and tell Cassie to move along, take her supervised custody time, get a mental health evaluation and work toward regaining respect of the court. For the first time in her life, do what is now in the best interests of her children.

Australian Protective Mum Cassie Watter (aka Catherine Lee Watter, Catherine Doubleday) has finally been arrested and charged in the kidnapping of her two daughters from Hermit Park Primary School in Townsville, Australia on April 4, 2014. This is the second Protective Parent Kidnapping Case with links to Townsville, Australia. Back in 2013, infamous American Protective Parent Mum Dorothy Lee Barnett was arrested in Mountain Creek. Her daughter Samantha Geldenhuys (aka Savanah Todd) was a University Student at Townsville.

MissinginMinnesota.com is reporting that Sandra Grazzini-Rucki had a brief court appearance this morning [April 23, 2018] at the Dakota County Judicial Center in Hastings, Minnesota. Grazzini-Rucki is being held without bail pending her next court appearance, scheduled for Friday at 9 AM. Grazzini-Rucki has applied to be represented by a public defender, despite living in a waterfront estate community in Clearwater, Florida.
Sandra Grazzini-Rucki was booked into the Dakota County Jail at 5:48 AM this morning after being transported from the Pinellas County Jail in Clearwater, Florida.
Grazzini-Rucki had been in custody in Florida since March 27, 2018, after a warrant was issued for her arrest when she failed to appear at her re-sentencing hearing on March 26, 2018, related to her 2016 conviction on six counts of deprivation of parental rights for her role in the disappearance of her daughters.

Underwatch’s Note: These protective parent moms like Sandra Grazzini just can’t follow court orders. It’s no wonder that the protective parent movement tries to discredit “parental alienation” and make statements that the custody evaluators and family court judges don’t understand domestic abuse. It sounds like the “real abusers” in these cases are the protective parent moms. They have no respect for the courts or America’s Criminal Justice System. As Sandra Grazzini sits in jail, her former spouse is raising her children. In this case, the “best interests of the child” standard seems very appropriate.
