I just saw a facebook group called Prosecute Judge Dawn Amacker. Families are destroyed by the biased actions of this judge. If you are a citizen of St. Tammany Parish, I can give you only one advice.
Years ago the very same happened in Lucerne County in Pennsylvania. Strict judges, harming children.
In Pennsylvania the motive was money. It was payment to the judges in order to detain as many children as possible.
I don’t know the motive of Judge Dawn Amacker. Maybe it was something the media should investigate. Until they do, families are better advised to leave this area.
