If You Want To Keep Custody Of Your Children, Stay Away From Goat Masks

From boing boing, Judge takes a woman’s child away for… um… being a Subgenius.

His Honor also strongly disapproved of the photos of Mary Magdalen [Rachel Bevilacqua] in a bondage dress and papier mach\’c3\’a9 goat\’e2\’80\’99s head. The judge repeatedly asked, \’e2\’80\’9cWhy a goat? What\’e2\’80\’99s so significant about a goat\’e2\’80\’99s head?\’e2\’80\’9d When Rachel replied, \’e2\’80\’9cI just thought the word \’e2\’80\’98goat\’e2\’80\’99 was funny,\’e2\’80\’9d Judge Punch lost his temper completely, and began to shout abuse at Rachel, calling her a \’e2\’80\’9cpervert,\’e2\’80\’9d \’e2\’80\’9cmentally ill,\’e2\’80\’9d \’e2\’80\’9clying,\’e2\’80\’9d and a participant in \’e2\’80\’9csex orgies.\’e2\’80\’9d The judge ordered that Rachel is to have absolutely no contact with her son, not even in writing, because he felt the pictures of X-Day performance art were evidence enough to suspect \’e2\’80\’9csevere mental illness\’e2\’80\’9d. Rachel has had no contact with Kohl since that day, February 3, 2006.

Not only that, she repeatedly insists on using that deviltry known as the Internet!

The reason for Magdalen’s absence (and the lack of the transcripts) became clear as of Thursday, March 9. On that day, I learned that the judge had ordered Magdalen to cease all communication on the Internet regarding her son. This was not a written statement \’e2\’80\ldblquote the judge had verbally ordered her to remain offline, and no written order was available. Magdalen stated that even though the order was verbal, the court considered it to be an official order from the judge, and so she has had to remain offline since then.

However, as of March 15th, Magdalen had obtained legal reputation from none other than the law firm of Lipsitz Green Fahringer Roll Salisbury & Cambria, LLP. (This firm includes Larry Flynt and Marilyn Manson among their clients.) Magdalen’s legal team is challenging this order. When the order is overturned and she is online again, she will have quite a story to tell.

Lesson: in America, don’t piss off the judge. Or else you’ll get TEXAS JUSTICE.
