Happy Birthday Baby Boy

“Two years ago today, I became a Mama.

I miss my son dearly.

He was the love of my life and my guardian angel.

I made this video to honor his memory, but to also to make sure people never forget what happened.

Please share this video liberally to help me raise awareness of what is happening to our children

and how incredibly broken our system truly is.

Happy Birthday Baby Boy – Mama is gonna start a revolution!”     Hera McLeod

“It Could Have All Been Prevented.”

From Sevier County News:

Jimmie Robinson accepted responsibility for killing his son-in-law, Jason Hicks, and agreed to a plea deal offered by Attorney General Jimmy Dunn. 

Attorney Bruce Poston appeared with Robinson in court Thursday before Judge Richard Vance  where he agreed to serve 17 and a half years in prison for the April 19, 2009 slaying. 

Robinson, who is 67, won’t be eligible for parole and must serve his entire sentence. 

Hicks was in the process of  divorcing his wife,  Wendi, when allegations that Hicks had molested one of the couple’s children surfaced.

A police investigation was conducted and Hicks was was never charged. Clinical psychologist Thomas Hanaway interviewed the couple and recommended Hicks be given full custody and Wendi should be allowed only visitation rights.

 Although the police believed Hicks was not guilty of wrong doing, the Department of Children’s Services believed otherwise. After a social worker investigated the case, a DCS committee concluded the abuse had occurred… 

Lawless America…The Movie is all about exposing the fact that we now live in Lawless America. We no longer have laws that are enforced because judges do whatever they want to do. America has also become lawless because government officials are dishonest and/or corrupt.

The movie will expose corruption in every state. The Movie will focus on victims. Corrupt judges and corrupt government officials will be exposed, and we will confront a number of the crooks.

If anyone has ever questioned the story of a person who has expressed the view that they were a victim of the government or of judges, this movie will prove that the odds are that the corruption report was true. In fact, there are probably tens of millions of victims in the United States who never realized what happened to them.

One feature length documentary movie is being produced. It will be shown in theaters, on Netflix, Blockbuster, and other such video places, and the movie will be presented at the Sundance Film Festival and other film festivals.

From Karen and Wendi Robinson’s interview with Bill Windsor of Lawless America:

“I do also keep a picture of him when he was about five. So cute.

That’s what I grieve for. That’s what really makes me sad. I talked to that picture a long time ago and I told him,

These little boys will have the life that you should have had.

They’re gonna catch frogs and fish and…

You know? It won’t happen to them. 

That’s who I talk to and that’s who I grieve for. 

It’s the child he once was.”

In the video above, Karen and Wendi Robinson discuss the clustering of child custody cases and open collusion of those working in Tennessee family court. It’s happening in Tennessee just as it’s happening all over the country. Click on the screenshot below to read about Dr. Tom P Hanaway’s involvement in another family court case there:
