A custody battle in Detroit has gone very public after three children were put in a juvenile detention facility June 24 allegedly for refusing to have lunch with their father. The children say they saw him hit their mother, hence the refusal.
Supporters of the children of Maya and Omer Tsimhoni picketed against the decision, the latest incident in a long legal custody fight over the kids.
According to Newsy's partners at WXYZ, Judge Lisa Gorcyca publicly questioned the oldest child's intelligence after he claimed his father was violent. After she said his father was a great man, she told the teen he could stay at the detention facility until he graduated high school.
