Subject: CALL TO ACTION - PLEASE FORWARD
Today, I spoke with Illinois State Representative, Robert Pritchard. He is a long time proponent of abating domestic and family abuse. He needs to hear from everyone. I asked him to author legislation called, "Duncan and Jack Law" which would only allow "Supervised Visits" to non-custodial parents who have either
1). Violated Orders of Protection and/or
2). Received a Guilty Conviction stemming from domestic and or family violence.
Before ordering visitation, a judge needs to make sure that there was no abuse in the home. If abuse is determined, the non-custodial parent should either be granted Supervised Visitation or No Visitation Privileges at all. Please email him and let him know that you're in support of this legislation or similar legislation.
If you have something better to add please feel free... anything helps...
Duncan and Jack are the 2 little children that lost their lives this week at the hand of their father. You can read the story at:
