Laci Peterson is missing in California

Another father is suspected of cheating family law justice

Jim Untershine, GZS of LB, 01-21-03

It seems that potential fathers in California are now being motivated to kill the potential mother of their child. The same California motivation for murder that was forced on Gary Condit is now being served on Scott Peterson.

Typically fathers of existing children have hogged the limelight, when the mother of their children are found dead. O.J. Simpson and Robert Blake are both assumed to be responsible for the death of the mother of their children.

The media has tried to provide good reasons to suspect Scott Peterson of murdering his pregnant wife Laci. Exploring Scott's alleged affair with another woman, a life insurance policy, a fish story, and a missing co-ed from Cal-Poly. The media has also waved their hand at some statistical number that leads them to believe that 70% of the Nicole Simpsons, Bonny-Lee Bakelys, and Sandra Levys are being killed by the O. J. Simpsons, Robert Blakes, and Gary Condits.

The California Attorney General currently reports the following statewide homicide statistics: \1

Perhaps the above statistics are not as damning as the media's numbers, but many would still find them appalling. 1 out of 4 women killed in California were put to death by their spouse, while 2 out of 5 of the women or children killed in California were put to death by a member of their family (Parent/child, spouse, or other relative).

The California homicide data does not refine the categories to allow us to connect the dots. New categories could be added to identify spouses who are fathers responsible for the death of the mother as well as:

What is the perceived motivation for murdering the mother of your child in California?

Regardless of marital status, California demands a noncustodial father to pay 25% of their net income plus medical care each month for 1 child, regardless of the mother's income \2. The California father will be relieved of his home and furnishings and half of his financial holdings. The child will have no legal right to the money paid for its support and the father must pay up to 18 years. The mother will determine the father's relationship with the child depending on whether she will allow it. If the father refuses to pay the extortion, he will by exiled to self-employment, denied to hold licenses, and imposed a financial embargo before facing debtor's prison.

Is the fear of indentured servitude and consumer fraud the motivation for a father to kill a mother in California, or is this just the public's perception?

Massachusetts demands 31% of a father's net income for 1 child. \3 Are the homicide statistics for Massachusetts similar to those of California? North Carolina has the lowest child support guideline demanding 11% of a father's net income for 1 child. \3 Is a father presumed to be a threat to a mother in North Carolina?

The financial demands placed on a noncustodial father in California only varies with the number of children. A father will pay 40% of his net income for 2 children and 50% for 3. California has the highest child support guideline in the nation for more than 1 child while North Carolina has the lowest demanding 15% net income for 2 children and 18% for 3. \3

If suicides and homicides were categorized across the nation to account for deaths related to fathers under control of the Family Law system and the number of children involved, then the human costs associated with the exploitation of children for money could be measured more accurately.

The child support guidelines are currently based on what the state Family Law courts can get away with. Maximizing the cash flow between parents insures the noncustodial parent will fall behind in child support allowing Temporary Aid to Needy Families (TANF) and Child Support Enforcement (CSE) to receive federal funding. California brags that 80% of child support orders are entered by default \4, which allows the state to brag that they get away with imposing their outrageous child support guideline 80% of the time, not because the guideline is fair, but rather because there is no due process, rebuttability, or a jury.

Are the potential victims of the Family Law system in California attempting to disarm their assailant or are they insuring they will be judged by a jury of their peers?

Nicole Simpson, Sandra Levy, and Bonnie-Lee Bakely never asked to be the weapon in the family law home invasion in California, but they are not around to implicate the Family Law system as the possible motivation for their murder.
