Kathleen Russell, political activist and Marin County Founder of the Center Judicial Excellence recently wrote a editorial on Family Law Courts that was published in the Opinion section of the Christian Science Monitor. She is also the owner of a Political Consulting Firm.
Since that time, we have received a number of tips about her direct association at Protective Parent Conferences with known Children of the Underground supporters Meera Fox and Connie Valentine. After hearing this, we are even more shocked that the Christian Science Monitor published her very bias editorial.
In America, we have made significant strides toward gender equality. In our nation’s family courts, we have also made great strides toward gender equality with joint custody and co-parenting. That said, it’s 2009 and political activist Kathleen Russell, who is NOT a judge, lawyer, psychologist, pediatrician or family law professional was able to get her opinion published in the Christian Science Monitor. She presented herself as a expert, telling us about the performance of our Family Law Courts and the handling of cases involving alleged abusive parents without disclosing any possible bias in her opinions. In our “opinion”, she is not a reliable source on this subject matter. She has very pathetic gender racist views on this subject matter that are most likely motivated by her business goals and personal agenda.
In America, Kathleen Russell has a right to claim free speech for her extremists views. But in our “opinion” these views are targeted at misguided divorcing mothers who might with some heavy handed rhetoric actually believe that our nation’s courts are allowing a pathetic abusive parent such as Phillip Garrido custody of their own children. The fact of the matter is that there are only a very small number of Phillip Garridos out there, certainly not 58K like Kathleen Russell would want custodial embattled mothers or parents to think. Especially, those misguided ones that would seek any means to get sole physical and financial control over their children.
Finally, not that it makes too much difference, but I’ve always assumed that Kathleen Russell was just another protective parent with a bad divorce who lost custody of her children. But that’s not the case I’m told, she’s not married and doesn’t have children.
I’m just glad there’s not too many Kathleen Russells in this world!
