Troy the Locator on #BABYVERONICA

A post from THE LIFE OF VON

Troy the Boy

I just had to bring you this little comment from ‘Troy the Locator (Official)’ in response to a comment of mine on Facebook, he wrote: “Von Coates, thats correct. She should not have been taken from her adoptive parents and her biological mother, who were enjoying an open adoption. her bio-father, AS EVERYBODY NOW KNOWS, abandon his unborn child. You may believe that parents who abandon their children should be able to get them back after they have been settled into a new home, but we do not support that here. By the way, the U.S. Supreme Court agreed, the Oklahoma Supreme Court agreed as did the S.C. Supreme Court. So I guess its just you and a hand full of Cherokee Nation lawyers who think abandonment is good parenting.”
Interesting. Of course you all know who the ‘she’ is here and the case being referred to. I think Troy has since found that it wasn’t just your Blogger and the lawyers who have a view on appropriate parenting and I hear that he is back peddling as fast as he can go. I hope it has been a learning experience for him and that he hasn’t wasted the opportunity. It might be too much to expect that he could change his mind and support parenting by biological parents and the rights of children!
Learning experiences!

So this is their PR campaign saying Dusten abandoned his pregnant girlfriend - which is total crap - Christy broke up with him and signed a cash deal with the adoption agency... Twisting the truth is so convenient and the courts bought it. Let this be a lesson for those young men and women who are expecting a baby and get trapped by the $13 billion dollar adoption cartel - they will sell your kid to the highest bidder and get away with it...

 And last Tuesday night I did a two hour interview with Gia Scott on adoption, being adopted and history: 
Listen now:


  1. Actually, it was the South Carolina Court and the Supreme Court of South Carolina that determined Dusten to have been a thwarted father, and who awarded him custody in September 2011. A custody ruling which the Crapos ignored while they kept Miss Veronica until Dec 31, 2011.

    What is Troy saying, now that he is backpedaling? I see the C team is still spreading their lies.

    1. Troy has a public Facebook page Robin - I have not gone and looked.

Please support NARF

Indian Country is under attack. Native tribes and people are fighting hard for justice. There is need for legal assistance across Indian Country, and NARF is doing as much as we can. With your help, we have fought for 48 years and we continue to fight.

It is hard to understand the extent of the attacks on Indian Country. We are sending a short series of emails this month with a few examples of attacks that are happening across Indian Country and how we are standing firm for justice.

Today, we look at recent effort to undo laws put in place to protect Native American children and families. All children deserve to be raised by loving families and communities. In the 1970s, Congress realized that state agencies and courts were disproportionately removing American Indian and Alaska Native children from their families. Often these devastating removals were due to an inability or unwillingness to understand Native cultures, where family is defined broadly and raising children is a shared responsibility. To stop these destructive practices, Congress passed the Indian Child Welfare Act (ICWA).

After forty years, ICWA has proven to be largely successful and many states have passed their own ICWAs. This success, however, is now being challenged by large, well-financed opponents who are actively and aggressively seeking to undermine ICWA’s protections for Native children. We are seeing lawsuits across the United States that challenge ICWA’s protections. NARF is working with partners to defend the rights of Native children and families.

Indian Country is under attack. We need you. Please join the ranks of Modern Day Warriors. Please donate today to help Native people protect their rights.
