    Mother of baby thrown into Raritan River plans to sue East Orange police for turning down restraining order | - NJ.com

    Another tragic story but...

    For crying out loud - she had a restraining order against him in '08 but still had a baby with him. Who's to blame?

    Does she have a case?

    It was a holiday. Should clerks be available 24/7 in every municipality in the country?

    Would the restraining order have saved the kid? He took the baby by force.

    Even if they gave her the restraining order they would not have done anything else. No department anywhere does anything like that.

    In light of this horrific crime, NJ had decided to issue Amber alerts for parental abductions. Just this week TV was interrupted every five mins with a PSA that said a child wa missing somewhere in NJ. No other info. Apparently the kid was returned safely to his mom the next morning. 99.99 percent of the time fathers do not throw their kid off a bridge. But because one did...

    Do judges sign restraining orders?

    all i know about ro's..is this...my son spends the entire day filling out the paper work etc..then they ask him....do you know where she lives...well she is stalking his ass...so at that time he didnt...that was it..they told him he had to find her...hello...that is just what she wants....

    so i considered doing a "skip and trace" on her...but i still think that is what she wants..him to look for her..any kind of attention....so he could never file the ro.

    she moves constantly...and changes her identity and background story...i never understood the urge to kill someone till this woman entered my son's life.
