Police Urge Brits to Report Suspected Coronavirus Lockdown Neighbours

British chiefs of police urge residents to snub and grab neighbors who think the lockout laws of coronavirus could be infringed.

Police in Humberside, West Midlands, Greater Manchester, Avon, and Somerset set up ‘Hotlines’ and “Internet channels ‘for people to make tip-offs when lock-downs are identified.

MSN reports: the portals have been created to respond to a spike in the number of calls to the non-emergency number 101 after the most significant decrease of civil freedoms of peace or wartime has been enforced by the PM.

People involved are asked to complete the electronic process that lays out the scope of the suspected violations.

We should supply police investigators with the precise location, date and time of the incident for suspected crimes committed by persons, organizations or businesses.

The cumulative number of people killed today with Covid-19 was 260 and the number of people who have diagnosed positively for the coronavirus has improved 24-hours history.

Britons who attempt to adapt to the coronavirus shutdown are disciplined by police officials and prosecuted in extreme cases over attempts to cough urgent staff.

Groups of two or more are scattered around the world by authorities, as local officials agree the authorities are ‘essentially helpless.’

Across Regents Park and Richmond Park in London, the people tended to flock to the British parks and plays and enjoy the warm weather, biking, and cycling.

Others marched down Brighton and Lyme Regis Dorset Promenade or stood on Bournemouth beach, and the police detained passengers as they kept solely enforcing socially destructive steps.

Derbyshire and Lincolnshire Police face accusations of zealotry for having used drones to spy on individuals on ‘non-essential journeys.’

President Martha Spurrier of Liberty said: “This new legislation undeniably constitutes the greatest limitation on our personal and social rights in a century.

Wendy Murphy: Everyone failed to protect Harmony Montgomery

Published

New Hampshire man held in 7-year-old daughter’s disappearance

Harmony Montgomery is 7 years old if she is alive, but nobody has seen her since the fall of 2019.

When she went missing, Harmony was living in New Hampshire with Adam Montgomery, a man whose DNA she shares (I will not use the word father to describe him.)

Her mother lives in Massachusetts, where a judge in February 2019 made the fateful decision that forced Harmony to live with Adam.

Harmony’s mother reportedly lost the custody battle because she had a drug problem, but Adam Montgomery was a drug dealer with a long record of violence, including gun violence and violence against women. His full criminal record has not been released, so we don’t know whether he has a history of child abuse or sex crimes.

The judge who gave Adam custody, Mark Newman, made an inexplicably bad decision because it’s not exactly news that drug dealers are also involved with guns and violence. Harmony should not have been forced to live with a drug addict or a drug dealer. Foster care isn’t great, but she would have been better off living in a zoo than living with a guy like Adam Montgomery.

Judge Newman has a reputation as a super advocate for children, yet he sent Harmony to live with Adam without waiting for a home study to be conducted to determine whether the child would be safe with Adam.

New Hampshire officials are under fire for failing to protect Harmony despite multiple reports to protective services that the child was being abused while living with Adam. Hoping to shift the blame, New Hampshire’s Gov. Chris Sununu sent a letter to Massachusetts’ Chief Justice Kimberly Budd last week, criticizing Judge Newman for sending Harmony to live with Adam despite the absence of a home study.

Both states’ governors are doing a lot of hand wringing, promising full investigations, blah, blah, blah. No doubt they will find mistakes and write reports saying hindsight is 20/20 and how they will fix a few problems to make sure it never happens again, blah, blah, blah.

We heard this same blather in 2005 when little Haleigh Poutre was beaten nearly to death by the family she was sent to live with by another Massachusetts judge. Isn’t hindsight in one case supposed to become foresight for the next one?

Officials who are supposed to protect children always promise to do better when a child dies or disappears, but then they don’t. They get away with it because kids don’t vote, and they don’t have any money. Children are easy to ignore, politically, and even easier to rape, beat and kill with impunity because they can’t protect themselves.

Five children a day die from abuse in this country, a number that keeps going up. The vast majority are killed by their own parents. Millions of children suffer nonfatal abuse. Every 10 seconds a report of child abuse is made, though very few incidents are actually reported. Most people find this data too painful to think about. Think about it anyway.

We give families too much discretion to hurt children behind closed doors. We don’t even allow children to testify in court proceedings where their well-being and safety are at stake. We say we want to protect children from the trauma of testifying but sending them to live with abusers without listening to them is far more traumatizing.

Kids are excellent witnesses because, unlike adults, they are not good at lying. Judges need to hear directly from children and listen very carefully to what they say before deciding where they should live.

Too many children are abused while under the seemingly watchful eye of courts and protective services organizations. Part of the problem is that judges and protective service agencies face no meaningful consequences for their bad decisions. The law should be changed so that agencies, social workers, and even judges face sanctions when their decisions cause serious harm to a child.

A relatively new legal approach being used in some European countries requires government officials to demonstrate in writing that they gave “due regard” to the well-being of a child before making a decision. Children should be able to file lawsuits when they suffer abuse because “due regard” was not given. Nothing works better as a quality control device than the threat of an expensive lawsuit.

New Hampshire wants to blame Massachusetts but neither state effectively protects children.

A recent national study found that abusive men across the board are much more likely than women, and even nonabusive men, to win custody of children.

No amount of gubernatorial handwringing will help Harmony Montgomery, but meaningful accountability will help other children moving forward. The question is, do the governors and lawmakers in Massachusetts and New Hampshire have the decency to build accountability into a system where the vulnerable and defenseless people being hurt don’t vote?

Ask Amy: Mother-in-law’s rant requires apology

Ask Amy: Abusive ex-husband now wants to share cabin

Dear Amy: In 2019, after a five-year-long process to make up his mind, my son married a young woman who is the only child of an Indian couple whose own marriage was arranged.

Our daughter-in-law has not embraced our family and doesn’t seem interested in interacting with us.

This past Christmas, she mostly kept to herself, doing things on her computer, playing with her dog, or just staying in the guest bedroom while my son hung out with us.

We are a very warm family. Our son and daughter participate, while my daughter-in-law doesn’t help in the kitchen at all, avoids hugs, and goes to her bedroom after dinner without a word.

She has no social graces and her behavior, especially toward me, has always been extremely cold and distant.

I am trying not to take it too personally because she is like this with most people of our generation, including in her own family.

She doesn’t have a very good relationship with her own mother, and they clashed a lot when organizing the wedding.

The day before they were supposed to return home, my cup was full and some steam escaped in the form of harsh words to my son about her, which she overheard.

Since then, I have written a long email to my son to apologize for my ugly words against the woman he loves.

I also intend to apologize to her after I have been reassured that she will accept my apology. I intend to mention that I do not understand her coldness and hostility toward us.

So far, my son has not replied; it’s been a week.
