SUICIDE: Judge Randy Bellows’ Denies Father’s Access as Punishment Fairfax County Court

In Fathers Rights, Justice Denied on March 11, 2015 at 9:03 pm
Fairfax County Family Court suicide Victim Chris Mackney

In his suicide note, a distraught father accused Judge Randy Bellows of numerous breaches of professional ethics, which seems to be par for the course for victims of judicial abuse with respect to the denial of equitable justice and fathers’ rights to raising their children started divorce. The deceased father’s ex-wife, who he vehemently claimed as antisocial personality disorder, has attempted to gag fathers’ rights activists from publishing the suicide note.

The publication of the suicide note is done under the doctrine of fair use and is exempt from any copyright takedown demands.

This suicide letter is published under the fair use doctrine for commentary, criticism, news reporting, research, teaching and for the public’s best interests.


“The love that my daughter and I shared was truly special. She is a such a sweet, kind and gentle spirit. I am so sorry that I will not be there to see her grow into a beautiful woman. It absolutely crushed me to not be in her life over the last three years. I worked very hard as a father to build her confidence and self-esteem. She is smart, funny and considerate, but she didn’t know it yet. I pray that she realizes her strengths and her confidence in herself will continue to grow. I love you dearly, [name redacted].

My son [name redacted] was just entering Kindergarten, when I lost access to him. He is gregarious, outgoing and a great athlete. He is smart and fearless. He could have just as much fun by himself as he could with other kids. Even the older boys in our neighbourhood wanted to play with [name redacted]. It absolutely breaks my heart that I will not be able to help him grow into a man. I love you to, [name redacted]. I miss you both so much.

My identity was taken from me, as result of this process. When it began, I was a commercial real estate broker with CB Richard Ellis. I lived by the Golden rule and made a living by bringing parties together and finding the common ground. My reputation as a broker was built on my honesty and integrity. When it ended, I was broke, homeless, unemployed and had no visitation with my own children.

I had no confidence and was paralyzed with fear that I would be going to jail whenever my ex-wife wanted. Nothing I could say or do would stop it. This is what being to death or ‘targeted’ by a psychopath looks like. This is the outcome. I didn’t somehow change into a ‘high-conflict’ person or lose my ability to steer clear of the law. I’ve had never been arrested, depressed, homeless or suicidal before this process. The stress and pressure applied to me was deliberate and nothing I could do or say would get me any relief. Nothing I or my attorneys said to my ex-wife’s attorney or to the Court made any difference. Truth, facts, evidence or even the best interest of my children had no affect on the outcome.

The family court system is broken, but from my experience, it is not the laws, its the lawyers. They feed off of the conflict. They are not hired to reduce conflict or protect the best interest of children, which is why third parties need to be involved. It should be mandatory for children to have a guardian ad litem, with extensive training in abuse and aggression.

It is absolutely shameful that the Fairfax County Court did nothing to intervene or understand the ongoing conflict. Judge Randy Bellows also used the Children as punishment, by withholding access for failing to fax a receipt. The entire conflict centered around the denial of access to the children, it was inconceivable to me that he would use children like this. This is exactly what my ex-wife was doing and now Judge Bellows was doing it for her.

To all my family, friends and the people that supported me through this process, I am so sorry. I know my reactions and behavior throughout this process did not always make sense. None of this made sense to me either. I had no help and the only suggestion I got from my attorneys was to remain silent.

At first, I did what I was told, remained silent and listened to my attorneys. Then after I had given my ex-wife full custody to try and appease her, I learned about Psychopathy and emailed Dr. Samenow about my concerns and asked him for help. Of course, I was ignored. As the conflict continued, I was forced to defend myself. When that didn’t work, I thought I could get the help I needed by speaking out. There is no right or wrong way to defend yourself from abuse. Naively, I thought that abuse was abuse and it would be recognized and something would be done. I thought speaking out would end the abuse or at least get them to back off. It didn’t. When no one did anything they were emboldened.

I took my own life because I had come to the conclusion that there was nothing I could do or say to end the abuse. Every time I got up off my knees, I would get knocked back down. They were not going to let me be the father I wanted to be to my children. People may think I am a coward for giving up on my children, but I didn’t see how I was going to heal from this. I have no money for an attorney, therapy or medication. I have lost four jobs because of this process. I was going to be at their mercy for the rest of my life and they had shown me none.

Being alienated, legally abused, emotionally abused, isolated and financially ruined are all a recipe for suicide. I wish I were stronger to keep going, but the emotional pain and fear of going to court and jail [because of exorbitant child support] became overwhelming. I became paralyzed with fear. I couldn’t flee and I could not fight. I was never going to be allowed to heal or recover. I wish I were better at articulating the psychological and emotional trauma I experienced.

I could fill a book with all the lies and mysterious rulings of the Court. Never have I experienced this kind of pain. I asked for help, but good men did nothing and evil prevailed. All I wanted was a Guardian Ad Litem for my children. Any third party would have been easily been able to confirm or refute all of my allegations, which is why none was ever appointed to protect the children or reduce the conflict.

Abuse is about power and control. Stand up for the abused and speak out. If someone speaks out about abuse, believe them.

Please teach my children empathy and about emotional invalidation and ‘gas-lighting’ or they may end up like me.

God have mercy on my soul.

NEW EVIDENCE: Earl Hardisty Knows Tracey Richter Murdered Dustin Wehde

In Attorney Ethics, Justice Denied, Sociopaths on December 22, 2013 at 7:51 pm
SECRET AUDIO RECORDING – Earl Hardisty, ex-county attorney reveals there was no evidence for second intruder, he never believe Tracey’s story.
I had not intended to release this audio recording from March 22, 2004. However, Tracey Richter’s mother Anna Richter maintains that her fantastic argument for her daughter’s innocence is supported by the previous County Attorney, Earl Hardisty, who she says believes Tracey is innocent.

The recording was made in a meeting between myself (Michael Roberts), ex-County Attorney Earl Hardisty and Sheriff Ken McClure. This was made shortly after I decided to file for divorce, BUT I still wasn’t convinced of Tracey’s guilt. I first realized that Tracey Richter murdered Dustin Wehde during this meeting, I was so shocked by what they told me, I had to step out of the room. Evidently, the investigators thought I was protecting Tracey while we were married and later told me later that “we knew the case wouldn’t break until your marriage broke”.

If Earl Hardisty really says that Tracey is innocent, I believe it is only to cover for the embarrassment of sitting on his hands for 10 years while Dustin’s family grieved. Keep in mind, Hardisty was an 8-year incumbent and was ousted by Sac County voters in favor of another attorney– from his own party! That in itself speaks volumes about the communities confidence in Hardisty’s abilities.

Tracking Down Missing Children – Victims of Parental Abduction

— BEGIN Authorized Statement —

Traditional Parental Abduction Investigations by private investigators are often in collaboration with law enforcement agencies in countries that are party to the Hague Convention on the Civil Aspects of International Child Abduction. This is where they attempt to physically locate deadbeat parents who are refusing visitation to the other parent. Often these attempts to locate the elusive parents are hampered by ingenious attempts by the abductor to go undetected.
The broad adoption of modern communication services and devices, such as the Internet and cell phones, brings with then new techniques for locating these individuals.
Rexxfield specializes in digital forensics, geo-location and electronic surveillance. Parental abduction investigative services are available to aggrieved parents world-wide or the private investigators handling their case..

Embarrassed – FBI forensic investigation refutes Buena Vista County Attorney Phil Haven’s previous dismissal of criminal charges

Attorney Phil Havens had a unique opportunity to take a monster off the streets back in 2006, instead she roamed free for another 5 years wreaking havoc on numerous families

Storm Lake, Iowa (PRWEB) December 11, 2012

New court records were released on the first anniversary of the 2011 murder conviction of Tracey Richter [Iowa vs. Tracey Richter [02811 FECR011900 (Sac County Iowa)]. According to these court records, a 2011 FBI forensic analysis of Richter’s computer hard drive revealed that the criminal charges filed by Michael Roberts in 2006 were in fact supported by the digital artifacts recovered therein. Tracey Richter-Roberts is now serving a life sentence without the possibility of parole for murder in the first degree.

Michael Roberts, according to court records, survived an attempted murder at the hands of Tracey Richter in 2004[a]. After receiving the FBI report he said “Buena Vista County Attorney Phil Havens of Iowa had a unique opportunity in 2006 when I filed these charges, but had them dismissed”. Roberts added “My faith in the justice system was restored 5 years later by a new breed of prosecutor who followed through to her guilty verdict”.
[a] [Iowa Dept. Justice Crime Victims’ Compensation Case 051667]

According to court records [Iowa vs. Tracey Richter-Roberts FECR037616 & FECR037675], Roberts filed almost 300 charges including attempted murder, false imprisonment, theft in the first degree; two counts of forgery; one count of perjury; one count of unauthorized computer access and 266 counts of unlawful interception of electronic communication. The court record reveals that Attorney Phil Havens recommended that the charges be dismissed and that Judge Robert Dull did so on 06/29/2006.

Long term incumbent Buena Vista County Attorney Phil Havens was defeated later that year by Attorney Dave Patton.

Michael Roberts appeared recently on 60-Minutes in a double length segment titled “A father’s Fight”. He told the story of his fight for justice and custody of his children who had been placed with the murderer for almost 8 years before her arrest. When asked why he appeared he said “I felt that I had an obligation to the truth in exposing an imperfect justice system, often managed by people in a position to act, but don’t”. He added “I also hoped that authorities would be pressured into allowing my kids to return home to Australia, as they were being held in the USA against their will”.
