During our days of hearing, Roger did not appear to be mean-spirited, but rather physically incapable of perceiving why he was being prevented from having unsupervised time with his children.Am I that stupid? Have I suffered serious brain damage? What does this mean?
I did earn a Ph.D. from the University of California, so I ought to be smart enough to understand a simple court order.
In court, Judge Morse denied that she said that I was too stupid to understand the situation. She seemed surprised when I quoted the above sentence. I guess she didn't say that I was mentally incapable; she said that I was physically incapable. Weird.
In a sense, she is right that I am incapable of understanding what this court has done, or what my ex-wife has done. Just as there are certain horrible crimes that I will never understand, I will never understand why the family court separates good parents from their kids. No reasonable person would do these things.
