In a recommendation, court referee Louis Belzer expressed concern over e-mail correspondences between the McNeilly and his son during his time in Iraq.These are absurd reasons for taking a son away from his dad and denying the dad his fundamental rights. Louis Belzer should never be allowed to testify in family court again.
Belzer said the e-mails display a much different relationship than a typical parent-child relationship, and more as a "counterpart to share his military adventure."
Belzer wrote, "I also question the nature of some of the correspondence relating to how to kill people in multiple ways and then indicating that 'next time someone touches you and leaves bruises on you, I'll be ready.' "
Belzer said McNeilly seemed more of the disposition to be a friend and buddy rather than a parent.
