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.

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.

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.

Cassie Watter and her two daughters now 11 were found in Taree, Australia. They have been reunified with their custodial Australian father.
The girl’s grandmother, Heather Doubleday claims she did not hear from her daughter (Editor’s note: good luck to anyone who believes that).
More on this story later.

These two identical twin daughters were kidnapped in April 2014 by their non-custodial mother Catherine “Cassie” Watter. This case was featured on May 18, 2014 on the website of Family Court Critic / Protective Parent Movement Safe Kids International run by Cindy Dumas of California. Dumas used the title: “Run Cassie Run!!” and labeled Cassie Watter as a Protective Mom. Watter was the former director of a paediatric health service in Townsville, Australia.

Alleged Sighting of Cassie Watter in Queensland’s North Coast
- Savanna Todd / Samantha Geldenhuys the daughter of Dorothy Lee Barnett is a nursing student at James Cook University in Townsville, Australia. By some strange coincidence, that is the city in which Cassie Watter abducted her two daughters. We wonder if Cassie Watter knew Dorothy Lee Barnett or any of the Barnett’s supporters?
