Documentary About The USA Family Court System

Filed under: Domestic Violence,Gender Politics,Law & Courts — MurrayBacon @ 6:45 pm Sat 4th August 2012

Support? System Down is a documentary film that covers the everyday issues of stress, family, struggle and suffering that families experience when put through the detrimental, winding manoeuvres of the family court systems, which are flooded with more cases than the labour force can handle or chooses not to handle.

Finally, a shocking documentary that exposes the truth! Hear what experts say about how some have figured out how to make money by emphasizing on divorce and child support issues between men and women through court orders. Parents are forced to pay exorbitant amounts of money in exchange for their credit, homes, bank accounts and even their freedom!

A Documentary About The USA Family Court System
Although the USA and NZ legislation are as different as chalk and Martian cheese, it seems that their behaviours are surprisingly similar !!??

I guess the common factors are greed, ignorance about family relationships, ignorance about family finances, lack of understanding of parenting skills and no desire to serve customers or protect children.

  3. Thank you Murray!

    You can simply watch it as I just did a few moments ago. – on the documentary webpage itself.
    If you use Firefox as a web browser you can install a free add-on called video downloader to download it for free to you computer’s hard drive.
    Then upload it to Youtube and send out the link so it can more easily go viral spreading worldwide.
    Of course this method will work for any number of other Men’s Rights videos. The only cost is a small amount for broadband used and some time. It’s a great way to be an online activist, so even if you can’t get out on protests in the streets you still know you’re doing something constructive to bring Men’s Rights issues out into the public.

    For what it’s worth I thought it was a great documentary. I only have one concern about it. I wish the documentary maker had questioned the president of the National Organization of Women more closely as she seemed NOT to be advocating for shared parenting, but the usurpation of parents by the state – the whole weird ‘it takes a village’ thing which is so often used to marginalize parents (most usually dads) from their kids.

  4. Quite a powerful documentary. This is the kind of stuff that will change public opinion. It’s only available free for a few days so I hope someone does capture it for future reference. Not that I mind paying something towards the effort and expense of its creator.

  5. Yes like Hans…Thank you so much Murray..

    Indeed it was very Powerful…But very very sad…It brought back some very painful memories …I wouldn’t wish this type of misery upon any decent Father or Mother..At long last, decent people are starting to wake up and they are seeing how corrupt the ‘system’ is…

    Your comment Skeptic ‘National Organization of Women more closely as she seemed NOT to be advocating for shared parenting’…Yes I got the vibes from her body language that she really didn’t want be interview at all…And begrudgingly mentioned the word “Fathers”…As if mentioning the word Father is a Sin…

    John Dutchie…Free at long last

  6. The DVD Support System Down? is now available for purchase.

    When Aginelo first floated this project, it sounded like a done on a shoestring project. Fair enough, it is very hard to assemble large groups of “damaged” men and get them to work constructively together.

    Now that he has released the final product, the credits show that it has been professionally produced, in every sense of the word. The technical presentation is very good.

    More spectacular, is the production, where he has managed to get comments included from a diverse range of speakers, including National Organisation of Women, several lawyers, a judge and a congressman. He has compromised in the tone that he has presented, but in doing so has achieved a product which the broadest spectrum of USA and/or NZ would watch and discuss the ideas and values presented. Besides, it is safer to offer information and allow viewers to make up their own mind, in their own time – Aristotle and Socrates!

    The credit card purchase system will handle an NZ address and I am patiently waiting to receive it in the mail.

    I suggest to support Aginelo, as he is supporting fathers and sensible shared parenting. Try to get your friends to watch it too. Cheers, MurrayBacon.

  7. The DVD of Support System Down? arrived in the mail yesterday. It arrived much earlier than promised at time of purchase. The communication is superb and well adjusted to the broad public awareness. The technical quality is slightly disappointing, due to NTSC TV system, but that cannot be blamed on the producer.

    I ask that those of you who wish to act in support for having a family court worthy of the name, for all citizens, purchase their own copy of this DVD and show it to their friends. MurrayBacon.

    Watch Angelo Lobo’s new documentary. It will be available free on his website, from late Monday (USA time) for 30 days.

    Later it will be available for purchase on DVD (USA NTSC format).

    I do suggest to support this director.

    His communication style is restrained and I believe the most effective style for persuading members of the public, that have not had personal experience of dealing with thieves in the familycaught$. MurrayBacon.

  9. I do suggest to watch: Romeo Misses A Payment A DOCUMENTARY ABOUT THE AMERICAN DIVORCE INDUSTRY. Much of the content was previously used in Support System Down, his previous documentary. I haven’t watched it really carefully, but it appears to be a moderate improvement over Support System Down.

    Also well worth a watch is: Divorce Corp.
