      Louisa Richardson-Rodas Update

      I have been unable to update you on Louisa’s progress, however, perhaps those who live in the vicinity will be able to get us some info and visit.  

      I have a jackass calling him/herself Anonymous Anonymous who has hit my blog as several other alias for days ranting and raving on behalf of the abusers Tommy and Frank. Notice never does anyone ever bring up her children she has two boys! They would also have you believe that I eat men for breakfast and spit them out. Well I do but only the kind who abuse.  

      Like the three men who just dropped out of my family album; George, Tommy and Frank who of course no longer deserve a page in my book! But let me introduce you to our other men, We have 6 great guys. In fact we had and still have more guys in the family than gals! I will also introduce you to the gals! even our Pure Breeds are 3 gals and 3 guys! We remain a loving family of guys/gals and just look at these 11 smiling faces. KEWL huh?

      Both Tommy and Frank are out of work and disinherited(and their ilk)and are now trying to buy their way back into the family graces by offering to allow me visitation. But wait – there is a catch Frank also wants to stay in my house at the same discounted rate- and he wants me to stop blogging and only then I can see my daughter to my hearts content!
      HA!

      I guess that’s all my daughter is worth to him in her current condition - but not to me- to me she is a Queen – not a pawn.  

      I am concerned, however, Louisa is alone a lot of the time. Her father works so Doug and Diane visit her as often as they can but they are the only other company Louisa gets besides Tommy and Frank when those two bother to show up at all.  

      I am told there is a list of persons Frank has banned- but he has not banned every name in the world. My parents in the late 80’s and Denise are fragile and will not /can not go without me.

      If anyone is in the area of West Orange NJ- please go see Louisa. She can have flowers, music, cards and company. Please – I do not want my baby to be there alone. She is alive and she sees, she feels her hand being held. She hears if you speak loudly on her right side and I think my baby is alone and scared and does not know why she has been abandoned by her mom who promised her – I would not leave her.  It was the last thing I said to her in the hospital over a week ago.

      So please if you are in the area go see my baby girl- I can’t just yet!

      Remember Frank put Louisa’s own two boys Marc and Joshua out of her home and instead has his kids living there on my dime and now wants to sell visitation of my daughter to keep it that way!

      At the very least call Kessler and ask how she is – Let them know that there are people out there who know of her – that she has friends and fans that love her. Please –  do not let my baby be left alone and forgotten because of these two selfish hatful vindictive bastards and their heartless cohorts – who would rather blast me than pay attention to what is best for Louisa.

      Also PLEASE DO NOT ADVOCATE FOR ME WITH KESSLER UNDER ANY CIRCUMSTANCES!!! They made it clear that any problems that I cause would be detrimental to keeping Louisa there and it is the best place for Louisa so DO NOT mention me – just let them know Louisa has friends – many many friends and she is loved and cared for! Please do not let Kessler think those two cruds are her only advocates or only visitors besides her Dad and Diane.

      Please continue to come to the blog- Your continued support has helped many many many women stand up who otherwise would not. This candor as horrible as it was to air has given many grandmothers, mothers and other women and caretakers the courage to stand up and scream and shout - now they know they are not alone. Now they realize that it really is not them - that it is not their fault—the terror is not their fault!
      Please continue to come give your support- this has been great help to so many who never had a voice - they are finding it now thanks to you!
      Many still can not write in the blogs but they are writing to me in email and they are reaching out - they just did not know how prevalent this problem was until now.
      Many grandmothers raising their children and being abused by their sons –the children are used as pawns they are writing to say thank you - they felt guilty to complain about their sons and were accepting blame and abuse.

        • After re reading the message it looks like Billy Jean is unable to visit Louisa and so therefore her parents can't – it must be truly shocking to have this level of "In family" fighting when both your daughters are at deaths door.

          I have sent a card to Louisa to show support

        • Time to update this site- don’t ya think?

           Louisa's Law is proposed to honor my daughter, Louisa Richardson Rodas, who was caring for her dying sister Denise Richardson on the day she was shot in the head and permanently disabled by George Hartwig, Denise's abusive husband.  Had the following proposed measures been in place on December 15, 2008, my daughter Louisa would not be lying in a nursing home, unable to sit or stand, unable to communicate, unable to eat or drink, unable to raise her children or recognize them.
          George Hartwig had viciously bludgeoned his dying wife Denise in the head with a hammer months earlier. He pled guilty to an attack on a dying woman for her pain medication as a result of drug abuse yet he was denied treatment. He was a repeat offender yet he was set free without bail and released without a restraining order. The only protection Denise had was her family taking turns to protect her. It was Louisa's turn when George Hartwig returned with a shotgun and callously blew the right side of her head off.
          Louisa’s Law seeks to require significant and effective sentences, eliminate or reduce plea deals and strictly enforce laws for Violence against Women.
          In the US, nearly 4* women are killed daily at the hands of their domestic partner, a woman is raped every few* minutes; a woman is battered every few* seconds. Every year, violence in the home and the community devastates the lives of millions of women. Perpetrators of violence against women are rarely held accountable for their acts. When women do challenge their abusers, it can often only be accomplished by long and humiliating court battles with little sympathy from authorities or the media. Violence against women is so deeply embedded in society that it often fails to garner public censure and outrage; instead the sentences are often nonexistent. It’s time to stop slapping the hands of perpetrators of violence against women and send the message of zero tolerance and creating specific sentences for VAW. Women must feel safer to file complaints and testify against their perpetrators and men must take committing violence against women as the serious crime it is. * Statistics need to be updated to 2011
          a) Enter an automatic and enforceable order of protection with a minimum term of ten years;
          b) Violator must enter an approved batter/anger management program with monitoring;
          c) Violators who were under the influence of drugs or alcohol at the time of the violation against a woman or who have any drug-related offenses within three years of the violence incident must enter a rehabilitation program and/or be tested periodically for continued drug or alcohol abuse;
          d) A GPS monitor should be installed if the violator is released from police custody using a system with victim notification;
          e) Full cash bail and full cash surety bonding must be implemented with domestic violence screening as part of the bonding process. For repeat offenders or violators of restraining orders, offenders are not given the opportunity for bail but should remain incarcerated pending trial because of the documented risk of death to the victim and victim's family members upon release of repeat offenders and those who have violated restraining orders;
          f) Require a compliance conference before the judge for accountability;
          g) Require judges to consider a variety of aggravating factors to ensure safety and punishment consistent with the risks for repeat violence, death, and permanent disability associated with VAW;
          h) Sentences must be served rather than suspended so that the victims and their families are safe.
          i)   Establishing a Nationwide Domestic Violence Registry for use by law enforcement and the public to promote instant access to existing orders of protection and residence of convicted abusers because of the risk of repeat violence.
