They Take His Child, Want to Throw Him in Jail and Now Bankrupt Dusten Brown Too?
I’ll just start out by saying if you are easily offended or have delicate sensibilities, then you might not want to keep reading. If you do choose to keep reading, you have indeed made a choice to do so and I am no longer responsible for any charges incurred by said reading. (Yeah, that’s kind of a joke. Funny, huh?)
Yes, see that’s the point. No one is making you read this. You, presumably a grown responsible adult, have made the informed decision to keep reading this blog. You might like what you read or you might not; but no matter what the outcome of our reading, you have made a choice. And even if you decide, at the end of your time reading here that you have indeed wasted your time and you will not get those 3 to 7 minutes of your life back again, you cannot hold me responsible for it. You decided to keep reading.
What Matt and Melanie Capobianco Chose to do
You know, like how Matt and Melanie Capobianco CHOSE to keep fighting for the adoption of Veronica Rose Brown to go through after Dusten Brown immediately revoked his unethically-begotten “consent” back in January of 2010 when Veronica was four months old.
You know, like how Matt and Melanie Capobianco CHOSE to try to adopt privately a child whom they knew had Cherokee blood and whose father was a registered tribe member, therefore making the ICWA applicable, which could (as it did) complicate said adoption.
You know, like how Matt and Melanie Capobianco CHOSE to appeal the South Carolina Family Court ruling and bring the matter of “Adoptive Couple vs Baby Girl” to the SC Supreme Court when the SC Family Court found that ICWA did apply and even if it didn’t, Dusten Brown was a thwarted father whose relinquishment consent was not gotten legally as the adoption agencies and birthmother conspired against him.
You know, like how Matt and Melanie Capobianco CHOSE to appeal the South Carolina Supreme Court ruling that upheld the South Carolina Family Court findings that gave custody to Dusten Brown. Like how they CHOSE to assemble the legal team (and PR team and arranged talk show appearances) to bring “Adoptive Couple vs Baby Girl” to the United States Supreme Court, which did happen as Justice Roberts, who seemingly has connections to the case, made sure that SCOTUS heard it and, surprise! sided with the unethical adoptive parents (as he is also allegedly an unethical adoptive parent.)
You know, like how Matt and Melanie Capobianco CHOSE to continue fighting for Veronica Rose even after she was obviously fine and cared for and happy in the care of her natural father and didn’t need to be adopted
You know, like how Matt and Melanie Capobianco CHOSE to leave South Carolina and go halfway across the country for over 6 weeks, even when it was clear that the Oklahoma and Cherokee Courts were not giving in any time soon and maybe, just maybe, they should stay at home?
To paraphrase what has been said to me, as a birth mother, oh, so very many times; “No one held a gun to their head.” They had CHOICES!
Matt and Melanie Capobianco CHOSE to keep pursuing that adoption since the time that Veronica was four freaking months old. At THAT very point in January of 2010, they could have taken their money, what they had left of their sanity, and marched their dried up old white infertile asses back to Nightline Christian Adoption agency and Raymond Godwin and found a way to buy another baby. But. That. Is. Not. What. They. Chose. To . Do.
They CHOSE to keep going. THEY CHOSE to keep fighting. THEY CHOSE to keep incurring expenses.
And now they are suing Dusten Brown for the expenses and legal fees they CHOSE to incur??
I’m sorry, but WHO THE FUCK DO THESE PEOPLE THINK THEY ARE?
Yes, we’ll keep on playing musical courts until we get one that will do what we want. Did you know that you can buy out the Supreme Court of the United States of America? Yes! Justice Roberts doesn’t come cheap but he will do all sorts of nasty things for blond haired Irish kids! Shush, don’t say nothing or we’ll get Dr Phil on your ass too! Once you get Dr. Phil on your side, then all the really stupid who don’t read will believe anything you say! And you get to go in the Today Show, too! Wheeee!
That was fun, right, Matt?
Right, Melanie! Now take your pills!
Ok Matt, but tell them my favorite part!
Sure! So we’ll keep on keeping on after your kid because WE WANT HER!! And then, after telling everyone in the whole world all sorts of lies and shit about you, we’ll take pretend that we want to be nice to you and share… but that’s bullshit!
Oh yeah! That’s bullshit. We won’t share with you at all! We’ll keep on saying.. Okay, maybe… but then we’ll come right back and say NO! CHANGED OUR MINDS!!
‘Cuz we wants finder-keepers-losers-weepers rules!
Yeah, so after we win! We CRUSH you!
We crush you like a bug! Like a worm!! We’ll take your daughter AND all your money! And get you put in jail too! Then you’ll have nothing! NOTHING!!
OK. That’s a mean sick side of myself that hopefully we’ll never see again. I’m sorry. This case has really just brought out some nasty thoughts. I needed to get that out. I did warn you, but seriously…
I really do wonder, how do these freaking people sleep at night?? I mean how in God’s name are they EVER going to be able to explain this to Veronica? Never mind that it’s just so insane to the rest of the world. Never mind that even adoptive parents are horrified by them really taking this just too damn far. Never mind that it really shows exactly what adoption is all too often like. Where do they get the balls to be this awful and think its all right???
What the Capobianco’s Half a Mil Lawsuit Really Means
According to the Tulsa World, the Capobianco’s filed documents in early September accusing Brown of ‘willful disobedience and complete disregard’ for the law and as compensation are seeking the recovery of all their legal fees and expenses from Brown and the Cherokee nation
“Willful disobedience and complete disregard” for the law? Umm… POT MEET KETTLE!!
Of course, then we have the double speak: Lori Alvino McGill, an attorney for Matt and Melanie Capobianco, says the Capobiancos are “not directly suing Brown”. Of course, Lori McGill is also known for drunk Facebooking in the wee hours of the morning and posting anonymously to blogs that call her out on it! Maybe she wasn’t really drunk and on Facebook; I am just trying to give her an excuse for the completely unethical and unprofessional behavior by a member of the Bar Association. Of course, I would like to see her NOT be a practicing member of the bar much longer. The point is; they ALL lie!
The fines, attorneys’ fees and “expenses” are estimated to total approximately $500k, which is a huge number to most normal folks anyway. The costs outlined in the contempt action include fines of up to $32,000 a day, plus the Capobiancos’ living expenses while in Oklahoma. The poor man has nothing already. He just lost his daughter and now, they expect to get blood from a stone?? With a “modest income and few assets,” Dusten Brown has little chance of ever paying that kind of bill, if he even SHOULD EVEN HAVE TO!?
But what a wonderful smart bargaining chip the Capobiancos and their legal team have now played.
Dusten Brown has already been a complete thorn in their side with his perseverance and dedication to truly doing what is right, which is raising his own child. While they might have “won,” it certainly didn’t go their way and I would bet that despite their manically grinning faces, they are still unsure whether or not Dusten Brown will really ever go away. However, with $500,00k hanging over his head, I would not be at all surprised if they come out and say:
“Oh, we’d be more than HAPPY to drop the lawsuit as long as you promise to drop any other custody actions in terms of trying to get Veronica back”.
Now they might wait until after they are, once again, in court, to say that. Or they might wait until they are behind closed doors at more “mediation.” Oh for sure, they are not going to come right out and say that on the Today Show or Dr. Phil, but the minute that was suggested to me (by the way, it was suggested by the director of an adopting agency!); I knew that was why they issued the lawsuit against Dusten Brown.
The Capobiancos are now trying to buy off Dusten Brown in the tune of half a million dollars.
Why not? They bought out her mother for a new SUV and some bills. They bought out the legal system. They bought out the state of South Carolina. They bought out the Supreme Court of the United States. They bought out public opinion.
Why can’t they just buy out Dusten Brown?
Forget morals. Forget ethics. Forget the good of the child. Give these god damn people exactly what they want and then please, let’s PRAISE them for it. Seriously? I think I am going to be sick.
Oh, and if you thought for a hot second that they so wanted what was best for Veronica? Then you have GOT to make sure that you read the whole “transition plan” that was cooked up by the Crapobiancos. There were TWO versions.. just so we are all clear about that. Not the one ‘nice’ kind version that “mean old Dusten” wouldn’t go for, but TWO. One was for public and PR consumption, and one, the one they wanted, was based on, well… you know… what THEY WANTED.
So much for that “Open Adoption”
Now we have the news that South Carolina Gov. Nikki Haley dropped her request Wednesday for Dusten Brown, so he doesn’t HAVE to go to South Carolina to BE arrested, but he could still face the charge if he returns to South Carolina. Meaning if he DARES go to VISIT his daughter… he COULD get arrested and face a charge of custodial interference. You know, because he didn’t HAND OVER Veronica when the Capobiancos wanted him too.
And apparently, the Capobiancos must ALWAYS get what THEY WANT.
Bet there won’t be any visits. Now how exactly is Dusten going to remain in his daughter’s life? Oh right, he isn’t. So about that “open adoption”? Not that it was ever really open to begin with. Christy has seen Veronica all of two times. TWO! And once was because she had to go to South Carolina for court!
Can someone explain to me again how these obviously selfish, spoiled brats of narcissistic land actually managed to pass a home study? Oh wait… right… they had the money to pay for their approval.
Look away, ethics, look away!
