Brickbat: Honor Thy Father … Or Else

|

When Geauga County, Ohio, Juvenile Court Judge Timothy J. Grendell ordered two teenage boys to resume visitation with their estranged father, they refused. So Grendell had them locked up in a juvenile detention center for the weekend instead. This concerned Geauga County Sheriff's Lt. Gary Gribbons so much that he wrote to the sheriff saying he didn't think they had authority to detain the two. But the boys remained in the detention center. Two weeks after the boys were released, Grendell's constable, John Ralph, filed complaints against the two, charging they violated the state's unruly child law. Those charges were dismissed by prosecutors. Grendell refused to answer questions from a local TV station about the matter, saying his "job as a Juvenile Court Judge is to protect the best interests of the children who come before the Court."

  4. Those charges were dismissed by prosecutors.

    Without prejudice. I’m going to guess that the father is well-connected or has some connection with the judge.

    1. That’s what I thought. Or the judge is just a jackwagon.

      1. “the definition of jackwagon is a slang insult meaning worthless or lazy that may have originated from the nickname of 19th century chow wagons in a wagon train.”

  8. his “job as a Juvenile Court Judge is to protect the best interests of the children who come before the Court.”

    Unfortunately, that’s how it is in Juvenile Court – the Constitution only selectively applies to children and when you have state actors acting as “child advocates” and deciding what’s in the “best interest” of the child, this is the sort of shit you get. The beatings will continue until morale improves.

  9. Two weeks after the boys were released, Grendell’s constable, John Ralph, filed complaints against the two, charging they violated the state’s unruly child law. Those charges were dismissed by prosecutors.

    It might be noted that the prosecutor dismissed the charges because they said there was no basis for the charges – in other words, these charges were simply CYA charges for an unlawful arrest. The judge fucked up and he knows it.

  10. What I foretold a long time ago is now coming to pass! Social relationships are now being managed by Government Almighty, and violators are being punished!

    Here is a recycled post from long ago, in which I foretold of this! I told ya so!

    Enforced social relationships with your Dad today; Mandated both social and sexual relationships with ALL (excluding “public servants” of course) tomorrow!

    Here, let me portray for you, my idealistic utopia where we all have “freedom from sexual want”, or, the right to demand your fair share of free sex from the pretty passers-by. An ideal redistributionist society, if you will… As I put on my tin-foil hat, I foresee a future USA where you will have the right to have intercourse (social and/or sexual) with any passer-by that you demand it from, except, of course, the “public servants” who are too busy enforcing your rights, to have intercourse with you. AKA, they are too busy fucking you over, to let you fuck them! And we will have to sneak, under cover of darkness or fog or smog, from house to house, to have any kind of voluntary social or sexual intercourse, for fear of having “freedom” foisted upon us, if we walk about openly… Or maybe we put on a REALLY ugly, slime-dripping disguise, and take our chances… … This LOVERLY idea brought to you for FREE by the Church of Scienfoology.

    1. Fuck off, Sqrlsy, you trash spamming troll.

    2. Skwerlee — Didn’t they already legitimize the “sexual emergency” defense in some EuroCountry when the violent rapist of a 10-year-old was set free because, well, what can we say, it was an Emergency?

      Besides, the DNC’s pet group, Antifa, is clearly a front organization crusading for the decriminalization of rape and pedophilia, which is a Party plank (decriminalization of everything, ultimately) — though kept semi-hidden for the purposes of deniability.

  11. Honor thy father, and any authority figure–especially government bosses–or else.

  12. Well, since they are old enough to decide they are actually girls, I think they are old enough to decide who to visit.

  13. As a point of reference, Ohio elects judges.

    While there are good arguments about the risk of political bias among appointed judges, this is the level of competence and accountability that you get with elected judges.

    1. And in case you think this was just a one-off example of bad judgement, http://www.ignorantandunreasonable.com/tag/tim-grendell.

    2. >>Ohio elects judges.

      Texas does too. It’s bizarre. The Dallas judge who threw the hairdresser in jail for dressing hair is up but is a favorite of the machine so he’ll win again.

  15. The judge has an unusual understanding of the concept of visitation. You know, as in visit? Someone was granted visitation rights. The judge seems to have interpreted that, not as preventing the spouse from interfering with his invitation, but as the power to compel the kids to come over!

  19. So… the kids have an avenue to sue the constable?
    If there is actually a court appointed lawyer for the interests of the kids, I would think its that lawyers sworn duty to look into it.

    1. But it’s most likely the same judge that appointed the lawyer, so what are the chances?
