When in the United States of America, does a non-citizen get more rights than an American born and law-biding citizen get? When does the rights of a non-American citizen who is accused of date-rape, that produces a child and physically abuses this American citizen get rights and the American born citizen this young mother's is stripped from her 's and she has her child snatched from her and placed in the hands of her abuser. When in the history of American , had there ever been placed a bench warrant for an baby under the age of one? When in American history does the judge have the right to change a baby's name, against the custodial American Citizen's wishes. While Joe Biden was senator he had implemented a law Violence Against Women Act in 1994 was the beginning of a historic commitment to women and children victimized by domestic violence and sexual assault. Our nation has been rewarded for this commitment. For a reason unknown to me it does not apply to April Griffin and her son Jesse Griffin in Milwaukee. Senator Biden of Delaware, now Vice-President Biden of the United States of America stated in the 90's that ground-breaking Violence Against Women Act (VAWA) in the 1990s that set the national agenda on criminalizing violence against women and holding batterers truly accountable. It encouraged states to set up coordinated community responses to domestic violence and rape; was the catalyst for passage of hundreds of state laws prohibiting family violence; and provided resources to set up shelters so battered women abused by husbands and boyfriends had a place to go.
Each time the Senator renewed the Act, in 2000 and 2005? He pushed for new initiatives. In 2000, the Act was attached to ground-breaking laws on human trafficking , crimes where over 80% of the victims are women. In 2005, the Violence Against Women Act tackled issues like domestic violence in public housing and treating children witnesses of family violence. Vice President Joseph R. Biden, Jr. Current Office: Vice President First Elected: 11/04/2008 Domestic Violence "I consider the Violence Against Women Act the single most significant legislation that I've crafted during my 35-year tenure in the Senate. Indeed, the enactment of the Violence Against Women Act in 1994 was the beginning of a historic commitment to women and children victimized by domestic violence and sexual assault. And since we passed the Act in 1994 over a million women have found justice in our courtrooms and obtained domestic violence protective orders."? Why has this escaped Vice-President Biden's notice and radar is that it has failed to protect April and Jesse Griffin. I hope that Vice-President Biden, would look at what he has made a law in 1994, that it will be used to protect April now. This has been confirmed by the Senate and is to be reported directly to the Attorney General. Because of the Senator's initiative, the Office's leadership and agenda cannot be pushed to the sidelines nor marginalized as one of many offices in a large bureaucracy. Instead, this law gives the Violence Against Women Office the foundation and roots it deserves. It is a separate and distinct office within the Department of Justice with a Director who answers only to the Attorney General. With April Griffin, this was not the case and still not the case, this young black mother has had her child taken from her she is facing 12 years in prison there has been many documents that were taken out of content and lies in the legal court that resides over her case. The laws of the State of Wisconsin and the federal laws of the United States of America. April Griffin is in prison for failure to provide her son to the abuser and the law that Vice-President enacted that states it has to go before the Attorney General has been robbed of her rights as a citizen of American, and a non-citizen has taken the rights that legally belong to her. April has undergone through her arrest on September 26, 2008 Milwaukee police entered April's home, without warrants and in plain clothes and pepper sprayed her while she held her baby, the baby was also sprayed. A 300 pound, 6 ft 4 white male cop, put his knee in April's back, tasered her with the taser gun directly on her spine paralyzing her, they also broke the baby's bones in the process. April has remained in the Milwaukee County Jail facing 12 years for a false charge 'interference with custody. When there was not a custody hearing, the state of Wisconsin asked her to name the father in a PATERNITY hearing to be reimbursed by the father for medical cost, she gave them medical documents about rape, and abuse-but he came in and offered money to the judge and the baby has been taken without any of her family members knowing where her son is, if he is in the states or in Africa as the father has threaten to take him. IN THIS DAY AND TIME, I WONDER WE WERE STOLEN FROM AFRICA AND BROUGHT TO THE UNITED STATES IT SEEMS AS IF WITH APRIL. HER SON WAS STOLEN AND TAKEN BACK TO AFRICA. IRONIC ISN'T IT. I don't understand how this could happen in America, and how a non-citizen who was an abuser and a rapist with hospital records to back all of April's claims be given the rights of what should of been April's, to have her son, a child that he never have been give custody to only visitation rights. But the judge states that April's crazy and needs mental elevation because she did not listen to him. What Mother would knowingly allow their child to be placed in harm's way. What Mother would knowingly allow someone to take their child after threatening to take them away from her and she not be able to ever see him again, because he was taking him to Africa. So that makes all Mothers crazy of every race, and social status. Please look at the video link on the side bar for April's sisters legal documents and continue to hear her sister's story and the outcry for help for this family. After doing so please follow the link and sign the petition and get this innocent woman out of jail and her son home to her. www.youtube.com/freeaprilgriffin http://globalgrind.com/source/www.thepetitionsite.com/560285/free-april-griffin-the-petition-site/ http://www.time.com/time/nation/article/0,8599,1846551,00.html
