Who is caring for child of Supermodel Kate Moss?

Supermodel Kate Moss May Be Charged – Yahoo! News
Note from ANCPR: The reason this article is posted is the very last paragraph in the story:
It was not immediately clear who was caring for the girl, and the Department for Education and Skills — which monitors child protection cases — wouldn’t comment on the case on Friday, citing privacy rights of parents and their children.

Why is it OK to just ignore the fact that the child has a father? Why? What exactly is going on here?

LONDON – Government prosecutors are advising police in their investigation of British supermodel Kate Moss’ cocaine use, the Crown Prosecution Service said Friday.

Virginia Crackdown on Missing Child Support

WSLS.com | Update: Virginia’s Crackdown on Missing Child Support

Note: Isn’t it heartwarming to see how much these people care? All this is fine as long as you buy into to the rhetoric that the definition of family doesn’t include the father.

Few will be able to take advantage of child-support amnesty

GRAND RAPIDS — At one time, Bill Schansema owed his ex-wife $16,000 in child support. Through a court action that took into account his earnings, he reduced his debt to $4,800.

Still, the 47-year-old Sparta resident says he will not be able to take advantage of the state’s child-support amnesty program, which allows noncustodial parents to rid themselves of any penalties if they pay their entire debt by the end of the year.

HOW TO WRITE TO WILLIAM JOSEPH CHRISTOPHER

HOW TO WRITE TO WILLIAM JOSEPH CHRISTOPHER
Please ask your readers to just write Mr. Christopher a note. I am sure he is crushed, by my not doing a in jail interview with him Friday. We had planned for it, I asked judge Yew for it, and the Jail Admin. just said “NO”.

If anyone wants to write :
William Joseph Christopher
DPJ737-MJN / 5A
885 North San Pedro Street
San Jose, CA. 95110

Just even a short note, say they KNOW about what the Court system did via my report of Sept. 23rd. And if anyone on your Newsletter list lives in San Jose… they might want to show up on Oct. 17 to watch whatever kind of trial takes place.

Soviet Justice in the United States

To read Wagener’s narrative of trying to get some information on this case, see this post
Soviet Justice in the United States

Daniel C. Fisher

In the now-defunct Soviet Union, thousands, perhaps millions were detained and imprisoned for extended periods of time without charge, without trial, without due process. Rightfully so, we decried this practice as barbaric and unjust. We stamped our feet and shook our fists and called it the “Evil Empire”.

However, it appears that the same policies and practices are alive and well in California. I refer to the case of William Joseph Christopher of San Jose, California. While there have been several highly publicized cases of wrongful conviction recently, this particular case seems to have slid under the public radar. While we all know or at least suspect that people are held for extended lengths of time illegally and without charge or conviction, how does six years strike you?
