What Some Desperate Fathers Do in Bitter Divorce and Custody Cases

Each time you read the first sentence of stories like these, you can almost guarantee it’s about a divorce and child custody case. And they always seem to occur at the holidays.

The 35-year-old man, Dmitriy Kanarikov, died after jumping from the Lincoln Square tower at 12:05 p.m. The red-haired tot, Kirill, dressed in Christmas pajamas, died moments later at St. Luke’s-Roosevelt Hospital, cops said.

    I haven’t seen my children for three years. And it is killing me, almost literally. I am in the depths of depression, illness, and have suicidal ideation. Parental alienation is real. Parental alienation syndrome is real.

    Regardless, I have no sympathy for any man or woman that decides to kill their children.

    To hell with them, and fuck them raw and may they burn in hell.

  2. Jay says:

    Fathers killing their children is exactly the reason why courts grant nonsense TROs against good fathers. And give custody to women almost automatically. And why society treats me as pariah when I am a good man and father.

    No sympathy to any b*tard who touches a hair on his child’s head when his issues is with wife and courts.

    I have no idea the point of this blog post of yours, but it is shameful if it doesn’t condemn any man who takes this route.

    If you don’t publish this, it is because fundamentally this website has no integrity.

    • There was no need for nastiness. We posted this bc it’s news, and it’s important. No one’s condoning anything, simply pointing out the travesty of family court custody battles and what it can cause some men to do. Much of the time these stories are about fathers who have no prior record or even a history of mental illness. That’s a sociological phenomenon worth examining.

      Please don’t imply we have no integrity the next time, or we won’t post your response.

    • Also worth noting is that when mothers kill their children—and they are far more likely to do so than fathers—they get much sympathy from society. People often assume these women are simply going through a rough period in their lives, as opposed to being a “bad woman” or a “bad mother.” When fathers kill, the knee-jerk reaction is quite the opposite.

      • Dwayne says:

        I thought I was the only one who noticed the double standard. When the Texas woman who killed her children was tried for murder, she got off scot-free in the court of public opinion. It was post-partum depression, it was said. I’ll also never forget how Susan Smith also got off for killing her SONS(I’m almost surprised she was even tried, since it ways boys that she killed). Of course, she blamed the murder on some males. Simply put, society has a different set of rules for male from female. Wrong is wrong, whether done by male or female. Keep up the good work!

  3. John O'Sullivan says:

    Sudden infant death syndrome is the one that always got me. We make up a disorder because we cannot think that a women is capable of murder. It is the only thing you can die of that we are not sure why it happens.
    The bigger issues it that our legal system should allow both parents to have access to a child. No child ever says as an adult that they did not want Mom or Dad in their lives as a child.
    No one writes about how mean the system is to divorced dads.
    I frankly do not like the idea of focusing on a small group of people that represent the extreme. Most parents would never hurt a child.

    • Cleve A Hall says:

      If you were to ask my 6 year old daughter who she’d prefer to live with, she’d tell you straight up… DADDY! She loves me more than god’s forgiveness! I’ve never hit her, called her names, made her drink alcohol to get her to sleep, caused her to catch ringworm from the stray animals collected or lied to her and told her to call other guys DAD… But in court, her opinion doesn’t mean shit either… as long as she is under 12.

  4. Cleve A Hall says:

    Like the woman who put her baby in the microwave and got off on the defense she was DRUNK and Distraught over her Boyfriend!?

    • Dwayne says:

      I bet if a father so much as raised his voice to his child, he’d be accused of child abused, even if it stopped there, but a mother can do what she pleases because she’s female?! What is with our society. It’s as if we males can do little right, but females can do no wrong.

  5. Mike from Pioneer Valley, MA says:

    Just a quibble: who knows what would have happened to Mr. Kanarikov in court?

    He KILLED himself.

    That may be a factor in the apparent disparity in legal outcomes between female-bodied persons and male-bodied persons who killed or injured their kids: the courts try only perpetrators who aren’t dead.

  6. When a Judge loses his objectivity, then the truism applies:

    Everything is religious, everything is political.

    Truth is no defence and legal railroading and a witchtrial mentality manifests itself – legal persecution, with which especially Holocaust Revisionists are familiar. This is illustrated in the following court transcript selection, so please, read on…

    Page 14 into page 15:

    Justice Matthew F. Cooper: “The Fucking Jews”
    Mr. Santomauro: No, actually, it was the opposite of that. It was “Fuck the Arabs” in the essay.
    Justice Matthew F. Cooper: Oh, that’s better.

    Justice Matthew F. Cooper: “Is that [Jewish] agenda to dilute the Aryan race?” On page 20:


    “An anti-Semite condemns people for being Jews, I am not an anti-Semite.”–Michael Santomauro.

    The essay in question:
    +The Myth of the Innocent Civilian


    “Justice Matthew F. Cooper has distorted, invented or misremembered almost every significant claim and phrase. In particular, ‘Jewish conspiracy’ is completely false, in spirit and in word.

    “It is serious and upsetting. Rather than correct a smear, Justice Cooper has attempted, perhaps not surprisingly, to justify one smear with another in the same direction.

    “Michael Santomauro promotes the ideal of “scientific journalism” – where the underlaying evidence of all articles is available to the reader precisely in order to avoid these type of distortions. Michael Santomauro treasurse his strong Jewish support just as he treasures the support from pan-Arab democracy activists and others who share the hope for a just world.” –I.S.
