Justina Pelletierís Father: Make Sure This Never Happens to Another Child

In case you missed the exciting news, Massachusetts Juvenile Court Judge Joseph Johnston has signed the order for Justina to go home today.

After months of fighting this legal battle on behalf of the Pelletier family, we are thrilled that Justina is finally returning home.

Lou Pelletier said in a text message, “This battle has been finally won. The WAR will not be won until we stop this from happening to ALL CHILDREN!!”

justinapelletier22bJustina said, “I’m so happy. I’m so excited, oh, my gosh. It’s such big news.”

The Pelletier family looks forward to putting this 16-month nightmare behind them. Justina and her family now begins the process of healing physically, emotionally, and spiritually.

In a ruling that is long overdue, Judge Joseph Johnston is sending Justina home from being a ward of the State of Massachusetts. In his decision, he wrote…

“I find that the parties have shown by credible evidence that circumstances have changed since the adjudication on Dec. 20, 2013, that Justina is a child in need of care and protection pursuant to G.L. c. 199, 24-26. Effective Wednesday, June 18, 2014, this care and protection petition is dismissed and custody of Justina is returned to her parents, Lou and Linda Pelletier.”

As you might imagine, the Pelletier family is overjoyed and is getting ready for a wonderful homecoming for Justina!

Last week, in a dramatic reversal, the Massachusetts Department of Children and Families (DCF) filed a motion with the courts agreeing with our petition to have Justina returned home to her family.

The motion for review of reconsideration and dismissal followed Liberty Counsel’s prior motion to return Justina home.

DCF’s concession completely undercut their argument and reasoning for performing a “parent-ectomy” and removing Justina from the care of the Pelletiers in the first place.

Justina has since received treatment from Tuft’s medical providers where she was receiving effective treatments before Boston Children’s Hospital intervened. This is what the Pelletiers fought for all along.

In the Judge’s ruling, he noted that “circumstances have changed since the adjudication on Dec. 20, 2013, that Justina is a child in need of care and protection pursuant to G.L. c. 199, 24-26.”

The “changed circumstances” include Justina’s deteriorating health and emotional state while in the custody of the DCF, effectively proving that Boston Children’s Hospital and the DCF were wrong in ever removing Justina from the care of the Pelletiers and Tufts Medical Center.

Now, she’ll begin the long road to recovery.

Justina has now lost sixteen months of her life with her family. The Pelletiers have spent untold hours and an enormous amount of resources fighting “Goliath” to get their daughter back from the misguided actions of an out-of-control state agency.

How about suing the crap out of everyone involved for kidnapping, violation of constitutional rights, physical damages, psychological trauma and like a billion other things these fascist sons of bitches did?

unless there is a lot to the story that we do not know, I agree... a huge massive lawsuit on behalf of Justina and her family is indicated in this travesty...

Indeed, if for no other reason than to make the scumbags think twice before ever attempting to do this again.

From everything I have read about this, it really was this bad. The people who perpetrated this should pay, big time.

You can bet if the Pelletiers had any political connections this bullturd would have never happened. Where was her congresscritter? Probably a ‘Rat like that Devil Bammy’s boy Gov.—rotten tasbards to the core to make this family suffer needlessly over tyrannical state rulings.

I agree with you. I just have a hard time wrapping my head around the colossal corruption it would take for this to happen.
I keep waiting for Paul Harvey to tell me, “the rest of the story.”

Now the judge should force MA to cover the bills for a lifetime of Justina’s psychotherapy.

one anonymous phone call will change your life forever as in someone calling CPS and reporting you on fabricated charges.
Children are lifted from their schools or these people show up at the door with and even without warrants and remove your kids.
At your hearing the scatology flows and the burden of proof falls on you and throughout your children are gone.
Now this all happens within a civil court where there is no swearing in,many times simply statements from others,no witnesses produced etc.
This family made the mistake of disagreeing with the physician who then twisted it into a denial of treatment as they did not consent.
Then it went to the “state” mandatory reporting system and that’s how this situations started. The state took over.
Disagree with a sacred social worker,the same.

Let me tell you something-my adult aged disabled son was cleared for discharge,wanted to come home and was not denied the right to return to his home and family and a social worker took it upon herself to illegally transfer him to a respite facility where the service provider then inserts him into the foster care system.They were told to send my son home. He also told them he wanted to go home repeatedly.

There was no APS involvement, no charges or crimes and remains unknown WHAT this social worker charted as the excuse to remove him from his safe and stable home.

In between someone initiates the policies of isolation etc. and again,based on what ?
He was disappeared, we did not know where he resided, had no contact,then we were permitted supervized visitation once every other week at a day program;s location, and monitored speaker phone calls limited to 2 a week- and still no one in Texas would help me to get him released and then he winds up ward of the courts. I am not the guardian,did not want guardianship to begin with. My son should have been discharged to his home and family to begin with.
Individual warehousing him received in excess of 2400/month.
there were no charges or crimes and I HAD a pristine record prior to my hearing where I had charactor assassination performed etc and OF COURSE THE TX BAR and BODA endorse this behavior.
This action cost us more than 10Gs which we could not afford either.
This crap goes on daily.

believe it and unless individuals present federal lawsuits on their own, no one ELSE will.
There is no accountability.

These courts,their judges and ad litems,,disciplinay councils and appeals ,etc are all spokes on the same wheel.

these alleged protective agencies,these advocacy groups,rights groups are all enablers in this game.
Telling our stories will not end the illegalities and THEY firmly believe that advocacy and petioning the law makers will bring change.
uuuH excUse me BUT,HOW MANY YEARS are you petitioning and what has changed ?

Politicians refuse to “go there” as these probate courts,guardianships,foster care are real time money makers and a nonstop industry and “someone” had to approve these laws and codes to begin with.

search out guardian abuse and sue CPS,fight cps —stories are REAL and horrific.
mine is nothin—he’s home,we live under the court for a lifetime and they can bang in here any time they want with a warrant on more trumped up crap and remove him or simply go and get him from his day program,
TX code allows for ex parte hearings .

so,never EVER argue with a doctor or a social worker and may the Almighty keep CPS away from your door.

What is going to happen to the doctor, who was in practice for only seven months who in his arrogance overruled those who were treating her for years, that started this entire tragic mess?

He should lose his license and all that he owns.
