Glenn Sacks (Fathers Rights National Talk Radio Show Host) is Trying to Dig Up Dirt on Jennifer Collins PAS Case (Parental Alienation Syndrome)
Volunteers Needed for Parental Alienation Project
October 1st, 2008 by Glenn Sacks
The Feminist Family Law Movement claims that abusive fathers often employ "Parental Alienation Syndrome" in family court. I've never doubted that such cases are possible, though they're not very common. There have been several cases which the FFLM has made into cause celebres in recent years, including Genia Shockome, Sadi Loeliger and Bridget Marks. In each case, the FFLM claimed that abusive fathers used claims of Parental Alienation Syndrome or similar tactics in order to win custody of their children from protective mothers. I've thoroughly investigated each of these three cases and found the FFLM's claims to be, frankly, a fraud.
To learn more, click here. Jennifer Collins was a guest on Morning Show with Mike and Juliet last week and she says she's a victim of her father's false claims of Parental Alienation Syndrome. To watch Jennifer, click here and go to about 2:55.
Jennifer's mother, Holly Collins fled to Holland with her two children in 1994, claiming that her husband had abused the children and that she needed to flee to protect them. Jennifer is now 23 and supports her mother's version of events.
I don't know the details of the case and have no position as to whether Holly Collins is telling the truth or not. There is one fact revealed in the article that does cast some suspicion on Collins case--the custody evaluator who said the father was abusive was Dr. Eli Newberger, a member of the Leadership Council’s Board. The Leadership Council is in the forefront of fighting fathers' access to their children in custody disputes, and in disparaging Parental Alienation. The fact that Newberger said that Collins' kids were abused means little, though it's certainly possible that he got it right in this case.
Jennifer has been doing a lot of public work on behalf of her mother in the case, and was awarded the Medal of Courage by the California Protective Parents Association. The CPPA is the one who foisted the Sadia Loeliger scam on PBS, and the show's producers were later forced to publicly apologize to Scott Loeliger, her ex-husband.
Now here's my question--would anybody (or group of two or three people) like to investigate the Collins case for me? To be clear, I do NOT want people who will go in with the intent of proving Holly Collins to be a liar and Jennifer deluded--I want the truth, whichever way it falls.
If you find that what Holly and Jennifer claim happened is true, I will make it clear that this is your finding. I will publish your results here on my blog with full credit to you if you wish. Some background on the case can be seen in this article in City Pages, which is sympathetic to the mother.
