Author Bill Stoneking Gains International Recognition with His Book 'The Diary of a Patient Man, a Father's Struggle'

Share Article

Children's rights, father's rights and domestic violence against fathers are constantly ignored by the judicial branch of our constitutional democracy, said author Bill Stoneking when releasing "The Diary of a Patient Man, A Father's Struggle" in October 2006, Domestic Violence Awareness Month. Stoneking's work and the true story of his nightmarish experience in the family court system shows the inhumane treatment that father's and children frequently receive and the need to aggressively discipline judges for abusing their bench and for supporting what he calls "domestic terrorism" against American families.

With a "true war on terrorism" happening inside the American family court system, Bill Stoneking brings readers this compelling true story "The Diary of a Patient Man, A Father's Struggle" (LuLu Press, Oct. 26, 2006, ISBN: 978-1-4303-0198-1) in an effort to raise public awareness to what he says is the obvious conduct of (female) abusers in family court and how judges who ignore and facilitate this unacceptable behavior need to be held accountable and firmly disciplined.

"A rose by any other name is still a rose," Stoneking said. "Criminal actions committed in the context of divorce and child custody are still Criminal Actions. Domestic violence is an unpunished criminal offense that occurs all too often in family court, particularly when a woman engages in it. These criminal actions need to be prosecuted firmly and cannot be ignored any further."

"Winning the war on terror for families will only start to happen when judges in family courts truly apply the 'rule of law.,'" Stoneking said. "The international war on terror will only be won when judges in other countries apply the rule of law and stop ignoring female violence in other nations. Unless a judge fears prosecution for supporting domestic terrorism, they'll continue supporting domestic terror." Stoneking also said that "Prosecutors and law enforcement officers who refuse to affect arrests and prosecutions for criminal violations of child custody and visitation orders require severe accountability measures to ensure they do their jobs in combating domestic violence or face being held accountable for what is seen by the public as a dereliction of duty."

Father's Working Together:

In a phone call to Bill Stoneking from Kevin Thompson on December 27th, 2006, both father's shared their stories and concur that the reckless conduct of the judges in family court is an identifiable root cause to the problem of domestic violence against fathers and their children. They also agreed that reckless judicial conduct is not only a catalyst for violence but an action that leads to the natural path for the escalation of domestic violence. This type of conduct is discussed in both Stoneking's and Thompson's books.
