What has happened to me and thousands of women could happen to you.  "We are caught in an inescapable network of mutuality, tied in a single garment of destiny.  Whatever affects one directly affects all indirectly."  - Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr.

A U.S. Marine, on the front lines in Iraq, wrote this comment in response to Tim King’s article on my life story on Mother's Day, May 2007: My friend was serving on the front lines in Iraq at the time. He had read my book and was shocked and grieved by my story of horror in America's Family Court system. Here is the comment he posted. We receive so many comments from people back in the states 'Thanking us for their freedom.' Well, the thought of some of those people being the ones who put Ms. Coral through what she has been through makes me ask the question; "What the hell are we over here fighting for, so the American Man will have the freedom to do what? Abuse, rape, torture not only strangers but their own wives!" And we fight so certain public figures will have the right to protect them. One lady compared the treatment of American women to those of other countries and I can tell you as bad as Iraq and Afghanistan is towards their women (and I have seen them both first hand) I have never heard of a story as bad as this one and because of that it's even sadder. We, as a society have the technology to put 'Men on the Moon,' but we, as a society can't fix the problem of 'lack of support' for victims of domestic abuse. I will go on patrol tomorrow here in Iraq and risk my life and the lives of my fellow Marines so Mr. Warner and all those supporting him can continue to do what they do! 'Only in America.” Ms. Coral, keep your head up 'Change is going to come,” 'SEMPER FI'

That a Judge (Judge Albin Norblad) would sign a court order REMOVING EIGHT CHILDREN, INCLUDING A NURSING INFANT, FROM THEIR MOTHER, for any reason other than child abuse, is shameful, shameful, shameful and every mother in this country should pay attention to such an unbelievable action. I have my doubts as to whether any male person, judge or not, should have the right to make such a profound decision, and Mr. Judge Norblad more than boldly demonstrates why. Can Judge Norblad please explain to the public exactly what crime was committed by Coral Theill that would justify such a "cruel and unusual" lifetime sentence for this mother.... AND HER EIGHT CHILDREN??? Yes, there was abuse in this case, that's for certain. The abuse however was committed by Mr. Warner, the righteous "Christian" husband/father, and by Mr. Albin Norblad the "wise" and powerful judge. If ever there was a miscarriage of justice, this is it. My personal history includes being a Pediatric nurse for 40 years, a foster care parent, as well as the parent of 4. I know Coral Theill personally and can guarantee she did not deserve such a dispicably inappropriate sentence - nor did her children - and that is exactly what this judge did. MOTHERS BEWARE: STAY AWAY FROM THE STATE OF OREGON, where such atrocities are being committed; how easy it is to imagine this judge presiding at the Salem witch hunts! What Mr. Warner did, and what Mr. Judge Albin Norblad justified, is horrifying; I believe that Mr. Warner and Judge Norblad have long since LOST THEIR WAY as human beings.

To Wally and Erna, thank you for taking the time to leave a comment. I appreciate your suggestions. If you wish, read the links below each of my articles this week, (Sunday and Monday), as they will give you more history on my "legal ordeal" these past 14 years. I have had no attorney since 1997 (13 years ago) due to poverty. No attorney will talk to me because I have no monies for a retainer fee. The Judicial Commission found nothing wrong with how Judge Norblad handled my case and they said nothing was wrong with him taking my nursing baby from me. I filed complaints with the Oregon State Bar due to the abuse I suffered in the courts. Their letter is in my book, BONSHEA. They found nothing wrong with the abuse I endured in court. Dr. Barbara May and I filed complaints with the Oregon State Administrator last year against Judge Paula Brownhill. She is "chair" of the Oregon State Family Law Advisory Board. The Oregon Court Administrator and the State Family Advisory board found nothing wrong with Judge Brownhill's handling of my case. Judge Brownhill emailed me, when she found out Dr. Barbara May and I had filed complaints...asking me "what was my problem" or something along that line. I found it very inappropriate for a Judge of my case to be personally emailing me. (I still have her email if anyone is interested in seeing it.) I have written hundreds of letters through the years, to no avail. I still believe in miracles, surprises, imminent possibilities and ONE FINE DAY!

Coral, you are able to express yourself, write well, what I do not understand is, why you did not fight the corrupt judiciary.Someone, somewhere may have heard your plea, and taken action. I am aware of the helplesness frustration, yes and fear,which can overshadow ones existence, but I find, that the endurance of my Prussian heritage will eventually prevail. To each his own, for me the fight lingers on, and I do not care how many in the judiciary get tired of hearing my name. because I find every loophole they try to circumvent....

One of the most draconian decisions a judge or family court can make is to deprive a child of a parent's love and care. Removing a child from its mother is not simply a private matter. It is a decision that demands the very highest standards of accountability and transparency.

Al Norblad is a detestable indivdual who got picked up for drunk driving (finally!) a while back. The local paper in his area reported that he said drinking was part of the culture he was involved in. Maybe Coral should re-focus her energy with the Judical Fitness Commission, and for what it's worth, if your lawyer regularly practices in the Marion/Polk County area, I would suggest getting an attorney outside of that area. You should have known Norblad's father, I believe genetics is at play here. Sorry for what happened to you Coral. I've had an intense dislike for Norblad going back to the 60's and was absolutely sick when he received a judical appointment from the governor nearly 40 years ago. It is rare indeed for judges to lose an election, even a pos like this drunk driver. He is a lowlife draft dodging, deferrment-warrior wimp, but actually a cut above his old man, but not by much.

Thanks, Earl, for your insightful comment. I have lived under a state address confidentiality program for the last 11 years, due to physical and sexual violence and criminal acts I suffered from my ex husband. I have the documentation, which was needed to be under these protection programs. My older son, Aaron, at 14, fled our home in 1995, as he had been severely assaulted by my ex husband for years. I was proud of my son for leaving. He was the one who got away physically and emotionally. I was never safe going to visit my children in the two years I attempted child visitation. I was assaulted once by Mr. Warner after a visitation. After this incident, I asked friends to pick up and drop off the children. It was difficult to find someone to do this as none of my friends wanted any contact with Mr. Warner. I have no respect for the Family Court System or the Christians and Pastors and elders who have supported my ex husband, Mr. Warner, all these years.

"Judge" Albin Norblad granted custody of Coral's eight children to a wife-beater and a rapist. This should be against the law. If a family court judge grants custody of children to a wife-beater, then the judge should be charged with child endangerment. If the wife-beater is a danger to his (ex)wife, then he is a danger to her children. One does not need a law degree to know this. The Child Protectives Services(CPS) should be forced by law to check on these children, whose custody was granted to a rapist and a wife-beater, and to make a public report. The CPS's are powerful, secret societies. If judicial immunity is not ended, then the family court judges will keep-on breaking the law. Wife-beating cases belong under the jurisdiction of a criminal court, like rape cases, and not the farce and fraud of a family court. The family courts should be open to the public, because the public taxpayers are supporting these courts, so the public and the public's elected representatives should have the right to know what's going in these secret courts, and to check on the dispursing of public funds. The family courts should be open to the press/media and to court watchdog organizations, to weed-out corrupt and incompetent judges, in the public interest and in the children's interest. Some family courts are powerful, secret societies.
