Justice for Harley and Zoey

As horrible as it is to accept, some people who become parents abuse their children. We all know this simply from watching the news.  Every day there's a story about a child hurt or killed by the person that was entrusted to keep them safe - their parent or parents.That's the sad truth. How many of us wish that we could go back in time and rescue Caylee Anthony from her mother, Casey?

Caylee was not saved because no one realized she was in danger from the very person that was supposed to protect her - her mother. That's because abusive parents do not abuse in public; they do not tell their friends; they do not brag on facebook that they just played a sex game with their 5 year old daughter. They hide it from everyone, and if the child tells, they accuse the child of lying or of being manipulated by the other parent.

Harley and her sister Zoey have been telling their mother, their doctors, their therapists, teachers, friends, and family that their daddy has been playing a game with them called "weewees and butts" since they were 4 and 3 years old.

Listen to their 1st disclosure to Raven: http://t.co/g0gvKyQ and a day later, their second: http://t.co/M8kRQDW

Now consider that no judge has ever heard those recordings.  Why? Because for 4.5 years, the judges have simply refuse to do so.  On August 16, 2011, Judge Deborah Gambrell in the Chancery Court of Marion County, Mississippi, once again refused to admit all of Raven's evidence, including these recordings,  and ordered that  Harley and Zoey have visits with their father in the house where they both report having been molested by their father in the past.

Judge Dawn Amacker in the 22nd Judicial District Court for the Parish of St. Tammany in Louisiana is also refusing to hear any evidence or to protect Harley and Zoey, even though the law requires her to have a hearing and to take evidence.

Their dad just keeps calling them liars and saying that their mom is making them say it.  All their mom wants is for a judge to look at ALL the evidence and THEN decide who to believe.  Don't you think Judge Gambrell and Judge Amacker should look at the evidence before they make Harley and Zoey go back to their father's house where there is no one to protect them except the person they are most afraid of?

Harley still loves her daddy. She just wants him to stop doing what he is doing to her.  She does not feel safe with him alone.  She said as much in her journal, but Judge Gambrell refused to allow it as evidence and Judge Amacker just ignored her.

Sign our petition telling the judges that there can be no justice for Harley and Zoey, or any child, if the law and evidence is ignored.  Tell them they must look at the evidence before they make a decision that will affect the rest of Harley and Zoey's lives.  Ask yourself, what if these were your daugthers?
