Connie Reguli, a Tennessee lawyer and anti-government, anti-CPS activist, filed a federal suit against various individuals and organizations associated with efforts to protect Wendy Hancock’s children, on behalf of Wendy Hancock.
I decided to set up this article in order to present some of the basic information relevant to the case.
In recent days, Connie and Wendy were arrested and criminally charged for their part in interfering with Wendy’s case; which involved Connie’s taking in to her home Wendy and one of her children.
It has been reported that Connie has a private lawyer to represent her in her criminal case and that Wendy will have a public defender to represent her.
Connie, activist that she is, appears determined to make the matter a showcase of her skills as a lawyer and an activist in making the public aware of all the alleged evilness involved in the child welfare system.
The federal suit on behalf of Wendy appears to be just one aspect of that publicity campaign.
Wendy appears to be from a dysfunctional family with dysfunctional children which has resulted in child protective services being involved in her life for years. Instead of working to resolve those issues and moving on, it appears Wendy, with the help of Connie and others similarly minded, has decided to try and use the situation to establish their 15 minutes of fame. It has been reported that Wendy’s daddy has financed Wendy’s efforts and the involvement of Connie in her case(s).
We’ll see how it goes.
