The Sophie case: discussing a few people

As the hashtag “StandWithSophie” continues to go viral, it appears that it won’t be slowing down anytime soon. Though Sophie had been returned to her father, this was apparently only for a short duration of time. Sophie is reportedly being returned, yet again, to the very location to which she claims to have been abused. With this, I think it’s time to do a quick scoop on some of the involved, and a bonus tidbit, on those involved, or  simply married to somebody who is.

Judge Cynthia/Ray Whelis

As you may already know, Judge Cynthia Whelis is the presiding judge for the 417th District court, located in Collins county, Texas. The infamous judge, at this current time, works within the family court system, to which she hears juvenile and child welfare cases. Shecurrently holds memberships within the State Bar of Texas, the Collin County Bar Association and a sustaining member of the Junior League of Plano, TX. Given how she has handled the entire Sophie case, it is disturbing to know that she is board certified in juvenile law by the Texas Board of Legal Specialization. Judge Whelis, recently attempted to perform a complete blackout on the Sophie case. Threatening the father with jail, it is alleged that she had hoped to prevent the case from going viral. It was around this time that she allegedly stated that 9yo, Sophie, had made false allegations regarding sexual abuse from her mother’s boyfriend, Jacob. We’ll get into Jacob shortly.

Judge Whelis, upon disregarding the allegations being made, had returned Sophie to the very location to which she was being abused. It is, at this point, there was a national outcry against the judge. At one point, there was a petition, which was on Change.org, to have her removed from her positon. However, this petition has since been removed. Though she continues to get unwanted attention, she still remains on the Sophie case, a choice that may result in further harm to the child.

 Ray Whelis, until recently, was also a judge. Though he once served in the Collins county courthouse, he would ultimately become a judge out of Dallas. The interesting thing that we discovered about him, was his involvement with a case, commonly associated with the hashtag “SaveJames.” According to a public records search, in 2007 this judged failed the certification exam in criminal trial law. in a 2009 application for a job as a state criminal-court district judge, heclaimed that he only failed because he was in the process of selling his home in previous months  and “took passing the exam for granted.” Regardless of this fact, he would be allowed to remain on the bench, although he still remains uncertified in criminal law.

Blake P. Mitchell (PhD)

Dr. Mitchell is responsible for conducting evaluations for the court. It is also worth noting that the Dr. is not only a psychologist, but also an attorney. Currently, he is operating his own practice, “Blake P. Mitchell & Associates.” As with most doctors, he has multiple reviews online. With an average rating of around 3/5, one such review reads as follows:

He is biased and I can not recommend him, as it could cause a harmful outcome to a patients overall mental health.

 Beyond conducting the evaluations on involved parties, it is currently unknown to what further extent he is involved with this case. We will try to update this if we are able to obtain such information.

The accused parties

There are two parties of primary concern within this case. Kelly, the mother, and Jacob, the boyfriend. According to Sophie’s allegations, Jacob is the man who has repeated abused her. The allegations continue with accusations that the mother not only encourages the abuse, but watches it. Since our last article, we have found that there are other things to be concerned about, in regards to Kelly.

In September, 2019, Kelly had made a frantic 9-1-1 call. During this call, she makes allegations of abuse from her boyfriend, Jacob. Bear in mind, this is before the sexual assault allegation was brought to light. Kelly had reportedly locked her children into a room, out of fear that Jacob would harm them. The only child who was not in this room, was an infant. Kelly mentions to the emergency operator that Jacob carrys a weapon on him. While this is generally not something we would mention, it is worth mentioning that Jacob is a convicted felon. This means, in order to have obtained said weapon, it is most likely that Kelly had bought it for him. Bear in mind, she would had known of his conviction. Within a few months of this event taking place, Sophie would make her allegations of sexual abuse. Given that the mother had made this frantic call, months prior but still remained with this man, she willfully placed her children in immediate danger. However, for the “great” and “honorable” judge, this held no merit in her choice to return these children to this home.

The nation continues to closely monitor this circus of a case. With the complete incompetence from the judge, to the lack of protection from the mother who should had done so, we can only hope that these children are finally united with the one man who has risked it all for them, their father. Though I am excited about writing the article, announcing their safe return, we are currently left with many unexpeted twists. It is abundantly clear that the father is fighting a bias judge, who’s actions clearly favor the mother. But it was these actions that has given him an entire virtual army, fighting a corrupt war for the safety and welfare of a child.

The Sophie Case

Over the years, I have come across some horrific CPS cases. None can even compare to the case that I’m writing about within this article. When looking into this case, it’s clear that there is a serious problem within the family court system. Sadly, for this 9yo child, there doesn’t appear to be any form of help from the very agency that was charged with protecting her from the very situation she is currently enduring. Before we dive into this, please be aware that this article may have some material that is graphic. If you are a sexual abuse victim, and are easily triggered, it is strongly advised to skip reading any further. Our goal in sharing this information is to try and get this girl some assistance, before it’s to late.

The Accusation

As with any sexual abuse case, there is always the accuser, the one who brings the abuse to light. In this instance, Sophie, a 9yo child, is the accuser. According to the child, she is constantly subjected to domestic violence, sexual grooming, and most recently molestation and rape. According to her, these are crimes being committed by her mother’s boyfriend, Jacob. However, the plot twist to all of this comes the other portion of her accusation: not only is the mother aware of abuses, she partakes in it, and has even encouraged it. While the accusations are being contested, it is very unlikely that this child is simply fabricated this. The evidence comes in how her story has not only remained consistant, but video evidence that clearly demonstrate how the girl reacts to going back to her primary residence. Simply put, this is not natural.

The results

Due to the incompetence of the family court judge, the grandmother, and Sophie’s own mother, the father began a campaign in attempt to rescue his daughter. While a GoFundMe has been started, in attempt to raise money for legal fees, the family court judge is accused of abusing her powers. In a diabolical twist, she is allegedly trying to prevent the father from having access to any donated funds. If you aren’t aware, this could be classified as a constitutional violation as she is impeding his ability to gather funds for legal representation, something to which he is entitled to. As all of this is going on, the father had done a livestream. Forced by the judge, who cited “mental trauma” to the child, the father was forced to remove the videos. However, there is a mirrored version which can be watched here.

Currently, although the allegations arose from a 9yo child, it appears that she is being ignored. Upon learning of the public outcry, the judge, who has shown herself to be incompetent, placed a gag order. In a recorded video of the court session, she makes a threat of arressting anybody who continues to share the information. With that thought in mind, our platform clearly was going to challenge that. But this threat leaves the question as to rather or not the judge can do this. Simply put, no. While the judge can place a gag order on the family, this judge is trying to put an order against anybody who speaks of the situation. This brings up a lot of jurisdictional problems. Meanwhile, the court system, and CPS, accuse the girl of lying. Sadly, this is an all to common occurance.

With no CPS, court, or even police assistance, there is much concern for the safety and life of this young child. Though there has been a court, relating to this very subject, the judge still found it to be in the “best” interest of the child if she remained with her mother. This entire case has shown not only incompence of this judge, but also the incompetence of the police and CPS workers involved. What’s even more appauling is the one man who is trying to rescue this girl, is also the man the court is threatning with jail. Perhaps, in this case, it is the judge, caseworkers, mother, and boyfriend who should obtain such a delightful concrete room.

P4P targets journalist

If you ask any journalist they will most likely tell you, “journalism isn’t an easy job.” This is especially true when it comes to reporting on predators and scammers. Journalist, Meko Haze of discuss global, has been reporting on the lengthy criminal activities of the 501(c)4, “Punished for Protecting (P4P.) While we have, in the past, covered articles on this very organization, we have never gotten the backlash that he has endured.

P4P alleges that they are an advocacy group. Desperate families, who utilize their services, quickly learn that this “nonprofit” organization is anything but nonprofit. With excessive fees, that range into the thousands, families are given false hope and misinformation by this group; that is just the tip of this iceberg.

The information provided to these families falls into the category of “sovereign citizenship.” If you are unfamiliar with what this is, here is a brief explanation. In short, they believe in “God’s law.” They do not recognize any laws passed by the courts, and are recognized by the government as being a terrorist group. P4P had been exposed countless times for spreading this sort of information, alongside false affadavits. This is where our article picks up, regarding Meko Haze.

Following what is clearly his moral convictions, Meko began a campaign of sharing information. The information discussed how P4P’s founder, Francesca Amato, alongside several others, were breaking multiple laws. Unlike our platform, Meko did get retaliation. While most of it has been the typical nonsense we journalists deal with daily, the group decided to step it up a level.

The accused initially claimed that the journalist was, in fact, paid by CPS to derail their movement. We have found nothing that proves the claim. What we did find, sadly, is the claims didn’t end there. Other claims included child trafficking, pedophilia, and even being a fraud himself exist. This failed to silence Meko.

Earlier tonight, I watched a live video broadcasted by Meko. The video took a rather disturbing turn when Robert Slaven, boyfriend of Amato, joined the comments. Though being given multiple oppurtunities to call-in live and be interviewed, Slaven declined. Instead, he left a variety of comments that contained implied threats of bodily harm against the journalist.

While it was clear that Slaven intended to proclaim innocence of the various crimes, some being felonies, his actions only further harmed that notion. Another fact that has harmed them stems from the families they claim to have helped. We have seen cases in which the families spoke against the organization. One such case came from overseas. While a relative lives in the States, P4P took $5000 from an elderly couple. Worst of all, it didn’t stop there. After violating a “stay at home” order, due to the SARS-CoV-2 situation, the organization demanded an additional $3000 from the couple.

With the nation being in a state of shutdown, including courts, this leads me to not only ask, “why did they really go to California?” But also, “where did the money really go?” It is estimated that a trip to California, from New York, would only cost around $1000. This meams, if they really went as they claim, there is a lot of money unaccounted for.

This is the same conclusion, Meko had come to. The same conclusion that has gotten him threats of bodily harm from alleged P4P representatives. Beyond that, it has also gotten the police called.

Recently, Meko attempted to reach out to Amato, using the number she claims is for her organization. After answering the phone as her organization, Meko speaks. At this point, she tells him to never call her personal phone again, insults him, and abruptly disconnects the call. This call lead her to file a police report against the journalist. This report brings about a few problems, however.

To start, by answering the phone as your organization, she is not claiming it as a personal number, as she attempted to claim. Furthermore, by filing the report with police, she is willfully making a false accusation. To be a legitimate claim, he would of had to call her personal number. Since he made the call during a live video, her claim can be easily disproven, and I hold no doubt that it will be.

There is a fine line between harassing a journalist and outright conducting in criminal activity against one. When that line is crossed, it is time for accountability. I have no doubt that Meko has already gathered evidence to use in court, nor do I doubt his integrity. What I do doubt, is an organization, that claims to be for children, exploiting families and bullying those who speak out. Both of these are actions P4P are guilty of. If you would like to read more on this organizations, articles are linked below.

Secret congressional meeting

Youtube video sparks outrage

Youtube is a place of many cultures, religions, and video types. With millions of people uploading and livestreaming, contraversy is an absolute. A video circulating around on Twitter has created a contraversy of its own. The video, which was captured from the Youtube channel, “Amy’s life journey,” appears to show what many are coining as child abuse and neglect. The video clip is below.

Shortly after this clip begins, a child is heard crying. Through other videos, we were able to confirm the child to be approx two years in age. Rather than attending the child, Amy continues the video, completely ignoring the cries. However, this quickly changes when the child abruptly screams. Amy is seen putting her phone down, a smack is heard, and we hear her yelling at the toddler.

Upon further investigation, we found several occurances to which could be classified as questionable. In multiple videos, Amy is seen making a video while driving, a situation from which has already taken the lives of multiple people. However, in these instances, children are in the vehicle with her. Photos can be seen below.

Amy videos while driving. Note the camera angle shows that it could be in an unsafe location, potentially blocking her site. The toddler behind her is believed to be the one crying in the video.
In this video there are two children clearly seen. There is potentially a third child on the passenger side, behind the unknown man.
A third video of driving while filming. Once again, she has a child in the vehicle.

While the first video,we have shown, is what has people outraged, the photos show a disturbing pattern. By filming these videos, when she should be focused on driving, Amy has willfully placed her children in immediate danger. It’s common knowledge that distracted driving has cost lives in the past. In fact, you can find livestreams to which the streamers have died in accidents. While people are outraged by the initial video shown, they should be further outraged by the habitual pattern of neglect and endangerment to her children.

We have reached out to Amy for comment. As of this time, we have gotten no reply. Should this change, however, we will update this article.

Racism: Onision, pictured here, utilizing the infamous “black face” look. This was originally done as a form of making fun of people of color.
When operating “onision.xyz,” Greg had a section entitled “rate my body.” This section was very popular among girls between the ages of 12-16. It was later changed due to contraversy.
In a recent “freak out” video, Onision is seen standing in his underwear. We blurred the image because the garments left nothing to the imagination.
In the above tweets, Greg once again demonstrates his lack of respect toward women.
As everybody already expected, the case was dismissed.

Many people told Onision this very thing as he spent years obsessing over Shiloh and other victims.
That time Onision slandered his father-in-law.
The title speaks for itself, originally uploaded to his forum, which has since been shutdown.
Onision’s own poll verifies who the ages of the majority of his viewers.
Notice the highlighted part. The double negatives, never and not, actually counter one another. This statement actually says that they did do something inappropriate.
It is unknown who Kai intemded this for.

Family Rights Movement: Observations (Opinionated article)

LEGAL DISCLAIMER.

We are making this disclaimer for legal purposes due to the content: This article is not intended to defame, slander, attack, or harm any individuals or their organizations. This is an opinionated article, written to express an opinion regarding the “family rights movement” as a whole.

The issues

Introduction

By now, most people are very much familiar with the “Family Rights Movement.” While, on the surface, we know it as the movement dedicated to the ratification, or expulsion, of CPS/DFS, there is a much deeper element that lurks within. This article is going to discuss why the movement, to many of us, is viewed as being a complete failure. However, we are going to at least play fair, we will highlight some of the good that has arisen from it over the years. Within this article, we are going to be covering a few core issues:

  1. Pettyness
  2. Artificial advocates
  3. Fabrication of information

The three categories are among the most serious issues I have witnessed within this movement. In fact, these issues are a big contributor as to why our platform completely removed itself from this arena, only touching on it if certain criterias were met. For instance, if an individual was causing people financial, emotional, or even harm to their case, we covered it. Sadly, that in itself has changed upon completion of this article.

Pettiness

Within the movement, emotions are one of the biggest contributors to this segment of the article. The thing to understand, in defense of the movement, is most of these people are hurting in a very deep way. However, that isn’t always the case. Spending just a few moments looking into the various groups, pages, and even personal pages, the disfunction becomes quickly apparant.

For the sake of simplicity, we are going to divide the movement into three categories: victims, advocates, and advcoate victims. While this may appear insignificant, it is, in fact, critical. The victims within the movement are families who have lost their child(ren.) Rather their case is currently opened, or was previously so, they are the ones seeking a variety of support. Many of these people allegedly have PTSD. For an advocate, it’s reccomended that they have training in this area. However, most don’t. To handle somebody who has been through such a traumatic event, with no training, is nothing short of a reciepe for disaster.

Among some of the other issues, is the constant bickering. Within the movement there is a lot of “he said/she said.” Where most other movements try to vet this sort of thing out, the Family rights movement has failed in an epic way. On nearly every group, page, etc. that relates to this movement, it is almost assured that there will be some form of drama. The drama varies from “exposures,” which are highly debatable for a variety reasons, isolation of “undesired” individuals, and the list goes on. While there are close groups within the movement, if you’re not one of those individuals, it is best to simply keep the list of people you trust to a bear minimum.

Within the movement there is a radical mentality of “perfection.” What this means is that certain individuals, or groups, are harshly targeted for minor mistakes, where others are simply forgiven. For some people, this means that no matter what, at some point they are going to get the short end of the stick. The short end of this stick comes in a variety of forms. A person could be isolated with the loss of those they considered friends. Furthermore, they could be berated in public, in the form of videos. And, to add onto this, they may get a combination of videos while their names are being dragged through the dirt on a variety of pages, though we have not seen this done to an innocent person in sometime.

Artificial Advocates

Now, if the above section isn’t “ramming a harpoon into the bear,” this segment just may do that. An artifical advocate is a person who, online, proclaims to be an advocate. However, if a person claims to be the Pope, does that make them such? To be considered an advocate, one must have training, or at least a great deal of knowledge of family law. Within the movement, there are a lot of people who make claims of knowing this, and thus making them an advocate. However, very few of them are being honest. For many families, this becomes a game of “Russian Roulette.” If you are seeking an advocate, we always suggest conducting research into the individual first. If you fail to do that, get the wrong “advocate,” your case may have a closing that is not what you expected.

Now, we are going to tie the “advocate victim” into this section. An advocate victim is a person who has been through the system. In many cases, they use this background to suggest that they know about the system; that is not true. While there are some good people out there, who have conducted research, you want to ensure that you find the right person for you. This type of “advocate,” however, does have one advantage: They know what moves CPS/DFS may make. For this reason, it isn’t always a bad idea to casually speak to a willing participate about this subject.

Fabrication of information

One of the worst things I have seen personally, over the years, is outright fabrication of information. Generally, this coinsides with a “smear campaign.” A smear campaign is the malicious, and willful, bullying to ruin a person’s reputation. This is a vicious but very rampant issue within the movement. The source of this usually derives from speculation. For instance: Person A sees you speaking to Person B. Person A doesn’t like person B. Regardless of your personal opinion of person B, person A begins to make accusations that you somehow “work” for person B. Generally, these campaigns are conducted with malice intent, lack of knowledge, or a simple lack of communication. Regardless, they cause the targeted individual emotional distress.

In other instances, partial truths are given out. Within the movement, over the years, this has been seen more than once. In fact, at one time, this was almost an epedemic. A partial truth is when an individual knows the entire story, but chooses to use words that are intended to make the target look bad. Regardless of the reasons why, the target is the one who suffers from this ignorant. In nearly every one of these issues, rarely is the intended target allowed to speak in their defense. Generally, they are forced to watch their names, pages, or groups get strung out on a rope. Occassionally, however, they are able to speak. This usually happens when the situation is being done via postings. However, more times than not, friends are lost and nobody listens.

The Good

There are people out there who will scam you for money, ruin your case, and think nothing of it. There are people who don’t know what they are doing, who intend to help. However, there are people who do truly mean well, will have your back regardless of the cost. On my personal Facebook, for instance, I have surrounded myself with these people. Some I have known for awhile now, some I am still getting to know. For all of them, however, their actions speak. Over the years I have lost many friends, while that is never easy, I don’t fret it for to long. These are the people who, ultimately, had proven themselves to be “flaky,” “toxic,” or simply those with ill intent.

If you are lucky, you will find those who will have your back.; this is one of the biggest highlights to the movement. You may find the advocate who helps you get your child(ren) home, I personally know of some who can-and will. The Family rights movement has dozens of severe issues. However, within the mix of those issues, there are a few good people; those people are the ones worth keeping.

For our platform, this is most likely the last time we will ever write about this movement. While there are a few things good, it is often very difficult to write articles such as this; this is especially true when you know there are good people within the movement. Furthermore, we don’t feel there is anymore benefit to touching on this subject any further as it has, over the years, spoken for itself. Rather that be good or bad, that is truly up to individual perception. With all of this being said, we are closing this chapter.

 

P4P: Final Review

As you have probably figured out from the title, this is most likely the last article we are going to cover on this subject. While it is our goal to protect vulnerable families from those who may potentially cause them harm, we can only beat this dead horse so many times. For those who have followed our platform, you are most likely aware of the alleged “non-profit” organization, “P4P.” Punished 4 Protecting, which was founded by Francesca Amato-Banfield, is an organization that has been under fire for sometime now. The reasons for such scrutiny vary for many reasons. This article is going to cover, not only this questionable organization, but its founder as well.

Punished 4 Protecting

Punished 4 Protecting was founded in early 2018. While this alone has no merit, it does in that Francesca Amato claims to have been around for many years, that is the only claim she makes that is factual. According to Amato, P4P is a “non-profit” organization. As a matter of fact, the below image is one to which makes such claim.

70687609_10156117359077303_421226430769135616_n

As stated, she claims to be a “non-profit.” What exactly does that entail? To be classified as a non profit, an organization has to be a 501(c)3. Organizations of this nature are tax exempt. However, with “P4P” one simple issue arises; it’s not a 501(c)3.If anything, it would be a  501(c)4. This sort of organization is defined as, “an organization that is not geared for profit and operated exclusively to promote social welfare. However, her organization is neither of these. It is incorporated and as such, cannot be a 501(c)3 or 501(c)4, We covered this issue in one of the first articles regarding Francesca’s organization. You may read the article, Sorry: 501c3 not found. 

When looking at the “P4P” site, you will notice another contradiction. Looking at the name, it has one slight flaw that disproves it being a “non-profit.” The minor issue is simply “inc.” If that doesn’t sound like anything critical, it actually is. It is because an organization cannot be incorporated and be a non-profit; it is either a corporation, or a non-profit, it can’t be both. While this could be argued as a simple oversight, looking into the list of New York’s registered non-profit organizations, one organization is missing: Francesca’s.

The above image brings fourth another problem. In the same post, Francesca, the family advocate, actually threatens Ashley Cooper with CPS. Now, for an individual who is “bringing down the system,” wouldn’t this be a bit counter-productive to her cause? If anything, it does demonstrate what lengths Francesca is willing to go to silence anybody who opposes her. Given the dialogue, one can presume that Francesca is fully aware of who Ashley is. Though this is also useless by itself, it plays into something we will be covering shortly.

Francesca Amato-Banfield

As we have stated, Francesca is a woman that has been encircled with controversy since 2017. With a variety of articles and YouTube videos, she has been repeatedly accused of being a con-artist. Furthermore, there have been many accusations regarding her friendships with registered sex offenders. In recent times, she faced accusations of spreading “sovereign citizenship” ideologies. One such example, comes from early 2019. Francesca Amato, alongside her typical group of associates, had a “one cure fix all” affidavit. While they claimed this affidavit worked, no evidence has ever been produced to validate this claim.

70458054_10156117127127303_9187273085839998976_n

In the first image we presented, it is clear that Francesca seems to know about Ashley’s case. Furthermore, she alleges to know enough to even know who the caseworker. However, in this most recent image, she is seen asking, “Who are you?” and, “Again who are you?” This question is a complete 180 from the original image. How does one implicate to know about another’s case if they don’t even know who that individual is to begin with? The fact that a self proclaimed advocate would resort to, what is essentially a form of blackmail, to silence anybody who speaks out against her, has only added to the controversy surrounding her.

Francesca Amato-Banfield, as we can tell from our research, is not an advocate. The amount of controversy, damaging information provided by her, and various other forms of questionable deeds has many people raising a brow. If the controversy isn’t about her directly, it surrounds her associates. One example of such is David Jose who, according to many people, takes money from a victim and then proceeds to block them. As if that isn’t enough, photographic evidence shows him illegally withdrawing funds out of bank accounts.  If you intend to use an advocate to fight your case, do your research. Don’t just pick the first beautiful flower you see, it may be toxic.

Secret “Congressional” meeting?

In the past, we have covered a group who allegedly scams families out of money. The families they often target are those fighting the CPS/DFS/DSS system. While this is already considered to be highly unethical, they appear to be completely oblivious to this. However, recently P4P’s (Punished 4 Protecting,) Francesca Amato-Banfield, David Jose, and a few others arranged a “congressional hearing.” According to the P4P team, they were going to be meeting with a few representatives of congress. During this time, they filmed a live video, which can be watched here.
This video brings up many questions. Among the questions:

1. Where are the representatives of Congress?
Notice, at no point during this video, are any of these alleged representatives seen. In fact, at no point do we ever actually hear them interact with the group in any form. If these representatives were truly there, wouldn’t they naturally be asking questions, or at minimum, conversating with the P4P team?
2.Where are the victims?
Now, these people had this “secret meeting” essentially on behalf of these CPS/DFS/DSS victims. So, with that in mind, where are the victims?

Francesca Amato-Banfield isn’t unfamiliar with being “exposed” online for her scams. Going onto YouTube, and even Google search, typing in her name will reveal videos, and articles, dating back to 2017. Another aspect of Amato that has, upon many occasions, concerned online advocates, is her past friendships with convicted pedophiles. You can find an article relating to this here. We could go deeper into this woman, however, we already have previous articles covering her and her affiliates.

The video, which was the alleged “congressional meeting,” is highly suspect. Not only have the online activists torn it apart, some of P4P’s own allies are beginning to question it. An actual attorney, Connie Reguli whom we have previously covered, came forward to “The Watchman’s” Randy Davis, and began discussing further questionable aspects of this meeting. The video, in its entirety, maybe watched here.

While the P4P team continues to make rather radical claims, none with actual documentation, it is apparent that people are beginning to see the pattern for what it is: A scam. On many occasions Francesca Amato has pushed for funding. Rather it be through her “self published” book, or with her controversial “consultations,” she exploits vulnerable families for all they are worth. Most of these families are unable to afford an attorney, they are desperate, looking for some form of hope. For a, what Amato claims to be a 501(c)3 (also proven to be false,) this truly brings a rather shady view toward her ethics. Regardless of your opinions of her, or the most recent video, we simply end this article with this: The evidence speaks for itself.

Oklahoma man dies in shootout.

On September 5, 2019 three seperate schools, in the city of Shawnee Oklahoma, found themselves in a “lock-down” situation. For local police, what began as a traffic stop, would ultimately prove itself to be fatal. While we often report on police brutality, wrongful shootings, sadly, this is not one of those articles. Brandon Goodin, who was father to a toddler, was pulled over due to a hit and run incident. The police attempted to serve a warrant for his arrest. However, Goodin had other plans. Goodin ultimately sped off before barricating himself into a nearby home. The police remained outside as the local SWAT unit arrived.

During, what would become a two hour standoff, Goodin was reported to have fired multiple shots at the police. The result of the shooting lead to three seperate schools going into lock-down. An elementary, a highschool, and a middle school. Only after Goodin died of a self inflicted gunshot, were the schools released from the security status. However, this brings fourth many questions. Who was Brandon Goodin and why did he choose to end his own life that day? While the second question may never be known, the first one can be explained with his extensive background.

As we looked through his background, it quickly became apparant that he’s had more than his share of dealings with the courts. Everything from Neglect, drug possession, armed robbery, it was obvious that he had made himself a rather unsuccessful criminal career. We had also found that crimes of a violent nature weren’t out of his category either. In 2000, He was convicted of first degree arson. What this essentially means is he preplanned and followed through with burning a structor. But his criminal history doesn’t end there.

Upon further investigation, we found that 2009 was a very eventful year for Goodin. In this year, not only was he convicted of second degree burlgery he was also convicted to knowingly possessing stolen items, most likely a charge that derived from the burglery. Most of the other events in his background were minor. Stealing street signs, avoiding police, things of that nature.

We found that, according to his Facebook, he was an “Apprentice electrician” at the company, “Shawver and Son.” He had apparantly been employed here since November of 2017. However, as of the time of this writing, we have been unable to establish any contact with this company. While his final post to Facebook has the typical “RIP” comments, understandingly, not everybody shares the sentiment; he did, afterall, cause three seperate schools to go into lockdown. In one such comment, the commenter leaves the simply statement, “Oops bad decision.” While it’s easy to understand why such a comment would be made, it’s the responses that we found to be interesting. One such response reads, “He was a good man. I lived with him. He had a big heart. RIP my friend.” While I do understand that there would be a natural bias, I almost felt compelled to ask, “Does a good man create a situation for children that is potentially traumatizing?” In the end, there may not be a deffinant answer to this question.

Currently, this is a story that is hot with the local media platforms. Although we were asked to cover it, we have opted out of contacting any family, we may do so at a later time. The reason for this decision is to give the family a chance to grieve. As with any story of this nature, there will always be people on both sides of the fence: those who believe him to be a good person, and those that will believe him to be a failed criminal, dying the way he had chosen to live.

Super “Starr”

When we released the article on Francesca Amato, it was only logical that we would, in time, write this article. Looking into the self proclaimed “advocate,” Jamie “Starr” Johnson. While Jamie isn’t as popular as some of the others, she is equally, if not more, diabolical than the Fran club.

Jamie, while it isn’t confirmed to us, appears to have gotten her name known through a specific case. The mother, Nikki (lastname omitted) had a child who was hospitalized. We are going to spare the details as that isn’t prudent for this article. We may cover that at a later time, only with the mother’s consent. To make a long story short, while the child was dying in the hospital, Jamie made multiple videos to which she exploited the situation. Bear in mind, that nobody related to the child had knowledge of this until much later.

In time, the child did pass. Jamie retreated to the hospital grounds, just outside the hospital. Again, without the family’s knowledge or permission, a livestream was made. During the video, Jamie, without consent, had announced the untimely death. Naturally, this created a rather large rift between Nikki and herself. The exploitation didn’t end there, however. While the mother begged her former “advocate” friend to cease, Jamie continued to exploit the death, all while Nikki publically demanded that she stop. From this point forward, Jamie’s shattered legacy spirals downward.

Contraversy involving the self proclaimed advocate doesn’t end there, however. Recently, there have been several images discovered pertaining to the “super starr.” While taking seductive images is not a crime, it has many people asking, “should a family adcocate act in this manner?” The answer is simply, “NO.” When proclaiming to be a family/child advocate, there are certain expectations that one must uphold. For example, an off duty officer posts racially driven statements, they are suspended. While Jamie defends the images, it has risen much concern regarding her advocasy. However, we will let the evidence speak for itself. At the end of this article, we have attached some of the images.

Jamie has caught even more attention. In a recent livestream, in which Rudy Orr and Randy Davis seem to make amends, Jamie went on the offensive. Among words of encouragement, Jamie began a vicious attack against Mr. Davis. During this assault, one of our own began to challenge her. He asked, on several occasions, for evidence to support her claims. Among her claims were: stalking, harassment, and slander. As of the time we wrote this article, Jamie has still failed to provide any evidence.

Following the assault, Randy and Rudy conducted another livestream, openly inviting Jamie to partake. They are heard repeatedly questioning rather or not Jamie would appear to present her evidence. Jamie did not. In fact, while they were doing the livestream, she had apparantly been commenting in the initial post, containing her assault. As far as we can tell, she has no evidence to present and thus avoided any subject to which she is called out.

If this is what an advocate is, I truly feel for any family who are desperate. Before choosing an advocate, look into them. It is strongly suggested that you not only check into them criminally, but morally, afterall it’s your children who depend on you to make the correct choices. We are going to assist in the moral department. Here is your potential advocate.
