Justice for Daddy

You know the country you live in is wired wrong when a judge sentences a father to six years of prison for protecting his little girl from what would certainly be the tragedy of her life… who gives these kind of people the power of judgement? Not only should he be fired as well as publicly flogged for inhumanity and utter stupidity!

The little girl who is now six years old, was given to the couple to adopt and raise by her biological mother at three months of age. The biological mother, who at the time had no conditions in which to raise the child, when asked about the biological father responded that he wasn't the kind of man fit to raise a child. So much so, that only now… six years later, the biological father appears and not only does he want to claim the child he barely knows, he also insists on a handsome sum of money for all the “psychological damage” caused upon him.

Are you kidding me?!

Any idiot can see that the man is using a child for a fat cheque. As if the fact that he screwed the child’s biological mother gives him the right to paternity!
As much as this makes my blood boil; I can understand that there’ll always be some asshole willing to sell his mother (or in this case, his daughter) to make a quick buck but what I can't accept is that some low life idiot who's job is to protect the innocent, give the little girl's father (yes because in my books, it is the man who raises the child who has right to this title… any imbecile can donate sperm!) a six year sentence for kidnapping.
Kidnapping?!! You call protecting his family a crime?!!
Crime is ripping a child from the arms of the man she lovingly calls “daddy”.

While it’s true that destiny often showers colours upon the blind (or as they say in Portuguese, give nuts to those who have no teeth), it doesn't mean that just because a man donates his sperm or a woman donates her womb, that their DNA automatically gives them rights over a child.
The parent is the one that teaches them right from wrong; their ABC´s; carries them on their shoulder and takes them shopping.
The parent is the one that rubs their tummies when they're sick, tucks them in at night and knows where they're most ticklish, their favourite colour, their favourite toy…
A parent is the person who prefers to go to jail for six years rather than have his little girl be raised by some pompous ass who doesn't know the first thing about being a real father!

So far, 10 000 people have already signed a petition for his freedom.

I'm in favour of castration! It should be illegal for some people to be allowed to reproduce!
"Father" and "Mother" are titles earned, not inherited.

Eu já tinha assinado.

A questão não é se os juízes devem ou não julgar, devem e precisamos deles. Não devem é interpretar as leis sem humanidade, como meras letras nos códigos.

I agree 500% with you. The biological mother of the child has already said she gave the child to them because she knows they would take care of her, she confirmed that they didn't kidnap the child and she herself didn't sell the child. Now what kind of judge, most probably someone without children of his own, would want to take a child away from a loving family and put her with someone she doesn't know and who doesn't know her?! I take my hat off for the father who is willing to go to jail for the sake of his daughter, now that's real true unselfish love!! Really, what is this world coming to? Other stories about children abused and tortured by their family are put back with those same people after leaving the hospital, they then return dead?! What the #$%#$#%?! It makes me sad and enraged!!!

Nós vivemos num país de extremos, onde a injustiça prolifera, temos um país onde é mais fácil atacar os mais desfavorecidos, os idosos, os reformados e até chegamos ao cumulo de atacar até os deficientes, por isso nao estranha nada que essa decisão tenha surgido, de realçar que ao mesmo tempo ainda decorre um processo muito pior do que esse e sem veredicto á vista o já enjoativo Casa Pia.
Com respeito a este caso se realmente o Pai biológico interessa-se com a filha deveria ver que separá-la dos pais "verdadeiros" irá ser traumatizante e falo por experiência própria, porque não chegar a um acordo, lá estou eu armado em Juiz, a criança mantêm-se com os pais "verdadeiros" e o suposto pai biológico pode visitá-la, seria um óptimo consesso.

Unresigned: Estou contigo, claro que precisamos de juizes e leis mas acima de enforçar a lei é preciso proteger os innocentes, é preciso bom senso.

Lequicha: The good thing in all of this is that not only is the country watching, but the people are doing something about it. I´m quite proud of the 10 000 signatures and voices that have made this injustice their business.

Marco Mota: Era bom, se em cada situação pudessemos chegar a um acordo... Confesso, eu não gostaria de ser juiz, pois só Deus é que conhece o coração dos homens e julgar as situações de forma a serem perfeitamente justar é mesmo só trabalho para Deus.

Já ouvi tantas versões desta história que nem sei bem em que acreditar...Todavia, erros judiciais, burocraticos ou das pessoas intervenientes não deviam terminar em mais sofrimento para a criança...

Read my last post!

P. S. The first part is from someone who knows well about the case...

Esse senhor militar não é um pai extremoso... é um raptor psicótico.

Eu tenho acompanhado melhor o caso e existem muitos factos a considerar... alias, estão muito bem expostos no teu blog. Para já a minha atenção (com a do resto de Portugal) está no desenrolar do resto desta história.
