Robert Coleman


Robert S. Coleman had ambitions early in life to work in law enforcement because it was his goal to work in a career that would afford him the opportunity to protect the safety of public citizens. It is interesting how life turns you in directions you sometimes never imagine it will, however, and it took a literal state kidnapping of his children for Robert to wind up in the career he is pursuing today. After having worked in security jobs and as a park ranger for a number of years, Robert decided to go into business for himself, and for almost ten years at the turn of the century, he operated Coleman Estates Rental Properties in Ironwood, Michigan. But in 2008, a vindictive couple who rented an apartment from Coleman made false allegations that he and his wife had been abusing their children. Because Robert did not get along that well with some of the law enforcement and state officials in the area, the state gladly went after him, without any actual proof of this at all. They started by raiding a motel he and his wife were staying in while on vacation, a raid which took place at three o’clock in the morning on a Sunday morning, after false claims had been introduced to the court by the state. Other lies and falsifications followed, and he and his wife were found guilty of child abuse and had to fight to get the custody of their children back. The nearly year long fight is depicted in his recent book At The Mercy Of The State. The book has drawn the attention to many to the problems of CPS (Child Protective Services) in his 2008 home town of Ironwood, Michigan, but also on a national scope -- problems Robert uncovered as he fought to defend himself and his wife from the malicious attack of Michigan state officials during their own custody battle. All are pointed out in his recent book. But in the course of writing his book, Robert discovered a new passion, that of publishing books that expose corruption and government abuse wherever it is found. So today, his new career direction is that of publisher for his new publishing company. So if you’ve had a problem with corrupt officials and want to publish your story, Robert will be there to assist you! He openly invites anyone to contact him via email at
