BREAKING: Judge returns custody of Justina Pelletier to parents

A Massachusetts juvenile court judge has returned custody of Connecticut teenager Justina Pelletier to her parents, effective Wednesday, according to the judge’s ruling obtained by the Globe.

“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.,” Judge Joseph Johnston wrote in the ruling. “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.”

“It’s a wonderful feeling to see that this little girl will be able to go home,” said Philip Moran, the lawyer for the girls’ parents, Linda and Lou Pelletier of West Hartford, Conn.

    Hopefully, this child will be returned to her parents. This was nothing but one big show by Child Protective Services to make a statement that they can ‘kidnap’ our children. They have been given the legal power by this corrupt government and they are nothing but low-life, greedy, political creatures who deal in the slave trade. Yes, children are being kidnapped for the illegal slave trade and sold for sexual services. An abomination by this current, corrupt and conscienceless government!

    ‘Circumstances have changed’? A pure cop-out by that judge. An attempt to forestall a lawsuit against the State of Taxachussetts.

    Somehow this is all Obama’s fault. Deep down, I know it is. C’mon people! Tell me how I can blame Obama for this!

        Thank you! I knew there was a conspiracy theory somewhere out there that would tie all of this to the WH!

          I’m not sure obamacare is actucally a conspiracy theory. Lot’s of people have real life complaints of various kinds. Did you know recently Dr. Oz was called on the carpet befor the Democrat Senate? End result, they want a list of names of over the counter products that in his opinion, really work. Why? Also with this teen , it was reported that an illness such as hers has 2 different medical opinions, 1 is it was physcological the other an actucal physical ailment. She was taken from her parents long enough for a determination to be made. By Whom? And Why? But I’m sure we will never know the answeres. In the meantime DR. Ben Carson has called out obamacare for what it is, he has called for common sense solutions. Get rid of obamacare and put in place a free market Constitutional patient centered system. Why Not?

          1. I Seigel says:

            Regarding your questions “Why?” “By Whom? And Why?” – why don’t you think we’ll get answers to those questions.

            Regarding your comment about Ben Carson: His suggestion hasn’t even begun to be discussed in terms of a legislative package by Republicans. It’s just his idea at the moment. “Constitutional patient centered system”. Has all the right buzzwords. Sounds great. Where are the details? We are STILL waiting – 5 years now – for Republicans’ alternative plan to Obamacare. Where is the plan? All we’ve heard is that they want to abolish it, but there is no replacement being proposed. Meanwhile, millions of people have signed up and are benefitting from Obamacare, unfortunately for Republicans.

            And going back to the news story at issue: how exactly does Obamacare fit into this legal issue?

            Millions, really, what color is the sky in your world!!

          4. John Edward Kapler says:

            And how many of that 14 million already had insurance and lost it. Obama claimed that over 40 million Americans had no insurance and you claim 14 million now have it! Amazing. Why was the bulk of obamcare delayed until after the election? Why were special interest groups given passes on his obamacare? Please check out the the facts and do some research. The tragedy in this current case is how little Liberty Americans have and how willing so many are willing to give to a bloated self serving government.. Today, few know nothing about our constitution and that will become a major problem for everyone.

          5. I Seigel says:

            Huh? What the heck are you rambling on about? I’m not “claiming” anything. You answered my questions with a nonsense answer – “millions” – and I answered your question with a nonsense answer. You asked what color the sky was, remember?

    Don’t believe it until Jessica is home. Governments lie, judges lie and the media will help them lie to support their gestapo-like tactics.

  • savage24 says:

    What this show is that her health was not the issue here, the issue was the power of the state to take a child away from her parents on nothing by one doctor’s word. It is apparent that not only is the justice system corrupted but the medical community is corrupted too.

  • Lee says:

    It’s about time! …. now, what is going to be done about this? …. this child became ‘sicker’ in the custody of the takers!

    1. hpinnc says:

      Lee, I don’t know what Linda & Lou Pelletier will do, but I think I would sue, sue, & sue all the agencies, doctors & anyone else involved in the kidnapping of this little girl. She should have been at home with her parents instead of having her life screwed up by a bunch of government know-it-all gurus who wanted to prove they knew best, for this little girl without any regard for her, or her parents. Someone should be fired for medical incompetency.

      1. rivahmitch says:

        If they can’t literally sue for blood and get it, your solution is an inadequate remedy for what transpired. The system, after all, is stacked to protect itself first and foremost. .

        1. hpinnc says:

          I’m not really that much familiar with the details of this case, but seems to me this family has suffered much, without cause, & I think the little girl & her family should be compensated for their mis-treatment by a bunch of bungling morons.

          1. rivahmitch says:

            I don’t disagree. However, my point was that (i) unless pain is inflicted directly on the individuals responsible, and (ii) it is literally pain or blood (whether financial bankruptcy, jail or broken bones (I don’t personally care), any compensation available through the legal system is inadequate. You see those involved as “bungling morons”. I see then as totalitarian miscreants empowered by the government system. They didn’t “bungle” but consciously, maliciously and willfully inflicted pain on a child and family just because they could, because it would scare other families and because they knew that they would suffer no personal harm themselves for their actions. They are the evil of the system and either they must suffer (to scare and deter others such as themselves) or the system itself must be destroyed.

            Thanks rivahmitch. You make it very plain to comprehend, I like your terminology much better.
