The three — ages 9, 10, and 15 — have been incarcerated for more than two weeks.
The children’s parents, Maya Eibschitz-Tsimhoni and Omer Tsimhoni, have been involved in a bitter divorce battle for six years. The Bloomfield Hills couple, who married in 1995, have made dozens of court appearances concerning parenting time, therapy, schooling and other issues — but have never reached a common ground.
Our court system and judges are expected to uphold the law, not be a moral compass for children caught in a nasty divorce. What the hell is wrong with the world today? This is wrong in EVERY way. How in the world could anyone possibly think that sending innocent children to juvenile detention would benefit them in any way? Stubborn or not, these children are going to be deeply affected by their sentence. In my opinion, this judge, Lisa Gorcyca, totally and completely over-stepped her bounds and took advantage of her power with her actions and snide comments to these children, especially to the older boy. I mean really, she even compared the kids to cult leader Charles Manson. It does not matter if she feels the kids were brain-washed, she is not a doctor, nor the moral police! She is confused by her authority.
As you read the details of the story http://www.dailytribune.com/general-news/20150708/judge-compares-bloomfield-hills-children-to-charles-manson-sends-them-to-childrens-village-for-refusing-to-speak-with-father and read the actual comments made by this judge you will see that this story seems like it came right out of a bad fiction novel. Sadly, it came right out of a court room in the U.S.A.
I pray that this enormous wrong-doing will be corrected, for the sake and sanity of the children.
