Despite the impassioned pleas of Sheriff Ross Mirkarimi’s wife, a judge has renewed a court order barring him from seeing or contacting his spouse or son until his domestic abuse trial is over.Yes, this country is destroying her family. The prosecutor, judge, cops, and double-crossing friend have all contributed. But most of all they are being destroyed by laws. American laws encourage child custody disputes instead of shared custody, arrests even when no victim makes a complaint, restraining orders designed to bust up a family, hearsay used as evidence in court, child punishment that is called child protection, always blaming the man, assuming the woman is incompetent to assert her interests, exaggerating a minor tiff into a criminal case, ignoring the marital privilege, etc.
“This country is trying to pull my family apart,” Eliana Lopez told Judge Susan Breall at her husband’s arraignment Thursday. “This is the real violence, I believe.” ...
Breall, who handles domestic violence cases for the court, said, “When you cry out for help, you don’t always cry out for police intervention. But the police are involved in this case, and a child is involved in this case.”
Breall said Lopez “clearly is educated, intelligent … a strong individual, and quite charming.”
“I believe that Eliana never wanted this to go to this extreme and end up in court,” the judge added. But she reiterated her concern for the couple’s young child and said the situation remains “extremely volatile.” The police arrest warrant affidavit more than justified renewal of the stay-away order, she said.
“I’m going to treat this case, at this point, like every other,” Breall said.
Outside court, an emotional Lopez told reporters that “this country has not allowed me to work on my marriage in a healthy way. I feel like … everybody is using my family, myself, in a political game just to destroy Ross.”
She added, “This country is destroying my family.”
This case is an example of how our American laws and law enforcement system are evil and have the purpose of destroying families.
Yes, I know that both the husband and wife have apparently made private remarks that make them look bad. So what? Most people have intimate conversations that would embarrass them if broadcast to the world. They are finding out who their friend are:
Well-known politicians have mostly shied away from the domestic violence case against Sheriff Ross Mirkarimi, but not former Mayor Art Agnos, who has become the embattled sheriff’s most prominent public defender. ...Ross Mirkarimi and Art Agnos are radical leftists with all sorts of anti-American views that are only popular in San Francisco. They belong to the movements that brought us these Orwellian domestic violence laws. I hope that this case gets a lot of publicity, so that everyone can see how ridiculous the laws are.
“I know this man and this woman. They love each other. They support each other. They love their child. They want to be together again. It does not rise to the level, in my opinion from what I know as an intimate friend, to anything close to domestic violence,” Agnos said.
He went on to suggest the charges were politically motivated, and said Mirkarimi should continue serving as sheriff during the legal proceedings.
