Not just in the U.S.: an Italian commission has found (at least) 230 Italian children were forcibly removed by law enforcement from their safe moms, most accused of “alienation” bc the children refused to go to their fathers, many of whom were abusive. In Italy the resistant child is taken into foster care temporarily and then frequently the custody is switched to the fathers from the mothers.From POLITICO Europe: “According to the Italian Foster Care Commission, there are no laws in Italy that directly authorize the forced removal of minors by law enforcement — not even in “high-conflict” family court cases. And the only law, according to Giannone, that does regulate forced removals applies only when a child is at risk of abandonment or death. Those are the cases in which social services are allowed to take a child with assistance from law enforcement — but only when there is “necessity and urgency.” However, in the cases the commission was able to examine in detail, “necessity and urgency” was never present. Paolo Crepet, an Italian psychiatrist and sociologist, says changes have to be made to Italy’s child law system, seeing such court-ordered removals as tantamount to authorized kidnapping. According to him, one of the big challenges in this regard will be stocking the courts with judges trained in child psychology [and abuse] — the removals of both Giovanni and Davide were ordered by a court w honorary judges who didn’t even have law degrees and who support the disputed theory of parental alienation. “All Family Courts should have a line beyond which they cannot go: You don’t do violence to a child. Let’s find another solution,” Crepet said. According to him, when a child is violently ripped from their environment in these ways, “they suffer enormous violence. Danielle Pollack
