In this county you question him or go out of town for a lawyer,he finds a way to make things worse for you. Unfair,biased and crooked.

I have searched for decades, then you want me to pay someone a huge price to contact my son. THIS is extortion and gestapo control. OPEN THE RECORDS NOW. OPEN THE RECORDS NOW. OPEN THE RECORDS NOW.
