September 25, 2007Ned Holstein, M.D., Executive Director of Fathers & Families, recently co-authored a piece on the Mary Winkler saga, arguing that Winkler, who killed her husband in March of 2006, should not receive custody of her three children. The column, written with columnist Glenn Sacks, is No child custody for husband-killer Mary Winkler (World Net Daily, 9/14/07). It appears below. No child custody for husband-killer Mary Winkler By Glenn Sacks and Ned Holstein, M.D. World Net Daily, 9/14/07 A killer shoots his spouse in the back, and then pulls the phone cord out so the victim can"t call 911. As the victim slowly bleeds to death, the killer abducts their three children and flees to another state. An Amber Alert is declared for the missing children, and the killer is hunted down by police, caught, and tried. Were the killer a man, he would be locked away for life. However, this killer is a woman, Mary Winkler. The kid gloves treatment she has received from the legal system demonstrates how courts tilt heavily in favor of women when adjudicating claims of domestic abuse.
