Are there careers for pedophiles in the justice system? In positions where they can support pedophilia by “bending” justice? Positions where they can act in a manner of supporting co-pedophiles to continue in their lusts? Where leniency can be exhibited with dismissive attitudes towards exploitation crimes against the weakest and most innocent in society?
Bravehearts is a child sexual assault awareness organisation with a focus on prevention. They recently released a report of an independent inquiry into the experiences of families in their dealings with the family courts.
The report title Abbey’s Project identifies fourteen more case studies where children have been put into the care of a parent or carer, who’s either been convicted or under suspicion of child sex offences.
In most of the cases, the crimes were carried out against their own children and yet the parents were still given unsupervised access.
European Court of Justice sanctifies sex with young children
Red. 26 Oct 2018 foreign countries 2 comments
What flourishes Switzerland in rejecting the self-determination initiative, shows a judgment of the European Court of Justice. According to him, an Islam saint should not be called a “pedophile” who approached and had sex with a 9-year-old. Now many EU citizens are wondering if these judges themselves have pedophile tendencies or just not all cups in the cupboard anymore.
The European Court of Human Rights confirmed on Thursday a scandalous decision of a Viennese court. A Viennese woman said in a lecture on the Muslim saint Mohammed, “A 56-year-old and a six-year-old? What do we call it, if it is not pedophilia? »
Affirmation of Islam against freedom of expression
This Prophet Muhammad, according to tradition, had sex with 9-year-old Aisha bint Abi Bakr, the youngest and third wife of this “saint” whom he married when she was 6 years old. That’s historically proven. Some contemporaries would say afterwards that he was a “kiddie”. But the Viennese did not want to express that hard. She said, among other things, Mohammed “liked to have a little something with children”.
Because of this factually correct statement, the Supreme Court had sentenced her to a fine for degrading religious beliefs, so the woman brought the case to the ECJ. That should not have done better.
“Foreign judges” in Strasbourg confirmed the first judgment of the Vienna court on Thursday. The woman was fined almost 500 euros and paid the costs of the proceedings.
Note: You can quite unabashedly approach little children and have sex with them if you only have the right religion. Then you also protect the European judges.
Initially Garry Edward Burton, 61, was charged in September with sexually abusing two boys between 2008 and 2011. There were 16 charges relating to these boys. On Thursday, he had 45 more charges read to him in the Perth Magistrates Court in relation to another two boys who were aged between 14 and 16 years old when they were allegedly sexually assaulted by Mr Burton between 1998 and 2004.
Mr Burton, who would have been aged 41 to 47 at the time of the alleged assaults, is accused of sexually penetrating the boys, indecently assaulting them, and forming an ongoing sexual relationship with them.
The Perth father was not required to enter a plea and spoke only to confirm he understood the new charges against him.

Mercado was convicted Thursday night of having sex with a young boy.
In 2008, a man came forward saying that Mercado had sexually abused him while the then-young boy visited him at his home in 1992.

The man claimed he had been abused up until he was a teenager.
“This guy is right where he needs to be after his conviction. As law enforcement officers or former law enforcement officers we are not above the law,” said Demings.
73-year-old Rodney Eddy on sex assault charges. Judge Robison’s action Friday sets the stage for a likely third jury trial for Eddy, a former CHURCH DEACON, POLICE OFFICER, TEACHER and SCHOOL BOARD member.
“I cannot ignore the statements of (the victim) and the jurors who made findings,” Robison said before sinking the plea agreement.
The latter half of the judge’s statement was a reference to Eddy’s second trial in 2010, when he was convicted of eight child sex-assault related felonies. Those convictions were wiped out last year when Robison ordered a new trial because of juror misconduct.
Hexamer’s LAWYER, Gary Botting, said police should not have been allowed to access his client’s computer, which allegedly contained thousands of images of child porn. The sex assaults started in 1995 and ended in 2009, after Hexamer attacked a six-year-old girl in Surrey. He threatened to stab the little girl with a knife before forcing her 12-year-old brother and his 15-year-old friend to lay on the ground in the woods and look away while he sexually assaulted her.
Rojano, who was convicted of lascivious acts with a child and of raping his toddler relative in early December, was accused of assaulting the young girl when she wandered into his garage while he was playing video games last June. He became sexually aroused upon seeing the three-year-old child, pulled down her pants and sodomised her. The girl’s mother found the garage door locked when she went to look for her daughter, and the district attorney’s office claims Rojano covered the child’s mouth to prevent her from screaming during the assault. He eventually let her out of the garage, but the girl’s mother did not know of the assault until her child complained of pain.
But here’s what JUDGE KELLY had to say about Rojano’s actions:
[In] looking at the facts of Mr. Rojano’s case, the manner in which this offence was committed is not typical of a predatory, violent brutal sodomy of a child case. Mr. Rojano did not seek out or stalk [the victim]. He was playing video games and she wandered into the garage. He became sexually aroused but did not appear to consciously intend to harm [the victim] when he sexually assaulted her.
Serial rapists terrorised Cleveland’s women and children in 1990s, while POLICE SET CASES ASIDE.
Spurred by media reports of thousands of untested rape kits across the state, Ohio Attorney General Mike DeWine issued an open call in 2011 for law enforcement agencies to send the decades-old evidence to state labs for testing. Results began rolling in late last year.
Among the most stunning revelations from the testing is that at least 12 serial rapists, responsible for as many as 50 attacks were on the prowl in Cleveland in the early 1990s. But because some cases were ignored or quickly abandoned, more women and children were raped.
POLICE: Retired Cop Serial Rapist Had Up to 50 Child, Adult Victims.
“Hundreds” of photos, some believed to be of victims as young as 13, were seized in four raids at former Michigan police sergeant’s homes.
Lawrence B. Woods,66, a retired police sergeant raped upwards of 50 women and children while on duty from 1996-2000, authorities in the southeast Michigan city of Flint alleged at a news conference Friday after recovering “hundreds” of photos of victims snapped on police property and other locations.

Why had the criminal JUSTICE SYSTEM JUDGE set free a man accused of raping a child? Who is responsible for the crimes that followed his release?
On July 14, a six-year-old girl went missing in Begumpur.
Two days later, the Begumpur police arrested 24-year-old Ravinder Kumar for the child’s rape and murder. During the course of the interrogation, the police claims Kumar confessed to sexually assaulting and killing at least 15 other children in the past six years.
The confession made headlines. When questions were raised over why the police had taken so long to nab Kumar, a disturbing fact emerged: This was not the first time Kumar had been arrested.
In June 2014, a six-year-old boy had been sexually assaulted and left to die in Begumpur. He survived. His case led the police to Kumar. But 11 months later, on May 20, 2015, Kumar was released on bail.
Three POLICE FORCES repeatedly ignored warnings that Ian Watkins was a dangerous pedophile.
Serious allegations dating back to 2008 were not investigated.
By the time he was charged six police forces had been flooded with tip-offs from appalled fans, former girlfriends and even Crimestoppers informants.
One former lover told four different forces about Watkins eight times over four years. She passed on the names, ages and addresses of the toddlers he would go on to subject to horrific torture.
But instead of probing the claims, officers warned her she could be charged with harassment.
Another lover, Joanne Mjadzelics, said the police failings led to the singer becoming increasingly brazen and believing he was invincible.
The 36-year-old was caught by chance – officers arrested him for drug offences last December and found a video of him attacking a baby. Even then he was twice granted bail before being charged.
FULTON COUNTY, GA (CBS46) –
A former Fulton County POLICE OFFICER, Michael Wilson, 32, was sentenced to serve 25 years in prison.
Wilson was arrested in November 2010, accused of molesting a 12-year-old girl.
According to Wilson’s arrest report, he assaulted the child more than once, and held her against her will.
In the summer of 2016, a 13-year-old girl said she was raped by 36-year-old Benjamin Lawrence Petty while she was at a church camp at Falls Creek. Petty was reportedly a cook at the church camp.
According to court documents, the victim said that Petty told her he was going to show her how to perform tricks on a device he brought to the camp when he suddenly pulled her into his cabin.
“Petty closed the door to his bedroom, tied [victim’s] hands behind her back, pulled down her jeans, pushed her face down on his bed, and violently raped and sodomised her,” the document states.
He was later arrested and charged with forcible sodomy, first-degree rape, and rape by instrumentation. He faced a maximum sentence of life in prison.
In January, Petty accepted a plea deal and was sentenced to just 15 years of probation in exchange for pleading guilty.
Under the terms of the plea deal, Petty will also be required to wear an ankle monitor for the next two years and register as an aggravated sex offender.
MIAMI – A former Miami POLICE OFFICER convicted of child molestation and downloading child pornography was sentenced to 25 years in prison Thursday.
Juan Roman, 57, was arrested last August after police raided his Biscayne Bay home, where they found numerous stashes of child pornography, including a video of him fondling a 6-year-old girl in his home.
Police said Roman also has a Batman fetish and often dressed up as the caped crusader and even had a tattoo of the superhero. They said he called the hard drive that contained more than 500 X-rated videos of young boys and girls the “batcave.”
Andrew Demers Jr., a 26-year veteran twice named TROOPER OF THE YEAR, pleads guilty to sexual contact
One of the mostly highly decorated police officers in Maine’s history was sentenced Tuesday to four years in prison for sexually assaulting a 4-year-old child.
Protesters have taken to the streets outside of the court house in San Angelo, Texas after a local PROSECUTOR’s plea deal let a convicted child rapist (Thomas Boden) home without serving any jail time, or even requiring him to register as a sex offender.
Brittany Lynn Rosser explained that her boyfriend, Thomas Boden, 29, was drunk and apparently suicidal and homicidal after raping her daughter. She got home, her 2 year old daughter came out screaming, “My butt, my butt!” So Rosser, “laid her down and opened her diaper to find an enormous amount of blood and a clear vaginal tear.” Then, she recalls, she “asked Annabelle what happened and she said, ‘Tom hurt me with his hand.’ I ran outside screaming and crying, pushed past several cops and asked Thomas if he touched my daughter. He didn’t say a word, but had a slight grin on his face.” ASSISTANT DISTRICT ATTORNEY Jason Ferguson issued a statement in response to protests that erupted from members of the community, saying that prosecutors did what was in “the best interest of the child”.

On Friday, Oct. 23, the case against Fisher—who was charged with two felonies for forcible sodomy of a child—was dismissed by Cole County CIRCUIT JUDGE Patricia Joyce. She agreed with Fisher’s defence attorney that the confessed rapist’s Constitutional right to a speedy trial had been violated, and after six years of legal proceedings, he walked free.
“I have never in all my life seen such a horrible decision by a judge,” said Ben Winfrey, Prosecuting Attorney for Miller County.
Fisher had pleaded guilty to committing two counts of forcible sodomy against his own 5-month-old infant daughter on Oct. 27, 2009, while the child was left in his care at their Brumley-area home. The child was transferred for emergency treatment to the University of Missouri-Columbia Hospital due to internal injuries resulting from the sexual assault, and an apparent skull fracture and broken bones.
JUDGE G. Todd Baugh admits Fault After Blaming Victim In Child Rape, saying she looks older than her age of 14 years. But he defends lenient sentencing of one month prison, for school teacher rapist. Saying some will find the sentence lenient and some others will see it as harsh. The 14 year old rape victim committed suicide.
Rotherham’s LABOUR LED COUNCIL combined with a staggering culture of denial allowed more than 1,400 vulnerable girls to be routinely abused by gangs of Asian men, a withering report has concluded.
Children as young as nine were groomed, trafficked and raped by members of the town’s Pakistani community, Councillors turned a blind eye to the appalling abuse for 16 years.
A damning report, written by former Victims’ Commissioner, Louise Casey, has laid bare the true extent of the council’s failings and accused those in charge of deliberately trying to cover up scandal and silence whistle-blowers.
The report also criticised the role of the police in the scandal, stating that there were “numerous occasions when girls were not believed”.The report went on: “They were threatened with wasting police time, they were told they had consented to sex and, on occasion, they were arrested at the scene of a crime, rather than the perpetrators.”
Her report, published in August revealed how the victims were routinely let down by those who were charged with safeguarding their welfare.
Hundreds of possible suspects, including two serving or former Rotherham COUNCILLORS, have been identified so far by an investigation into child sexual abuse in the town, the National Crime Agency has said.
For three long decades Andre Bamberski waged a tireless campaign to win justice for the daughter he was sure had been murdered. Pretty, sports-mad Kalinka, 14, was found dead in suspicious circumstances in 1982.
But a bungled investigation, disputed post mortem and conflicting medical evidence left Andre convinced she had been drugged, raped and murdered by the stepfather, suave CARDIOLOGIST Dr Dieter Krombach.
Krombach told investigators that the evening before he had injected his stepdaughter with iron and cobalt to treat anaemia and given her a sleeping tablet.
But a post mortem later found evidence that the teenager had been raped and had choked on her own vomit while she was unconscious.
Despite this, Krombach, a former DIPLOMAT with friends in high places, was never formally interviewed. German PROSECUTORS decided Kalinka’s death was an accident and closed the case.
Krombach was convicted of drugging and raping a 16-year-old female patient. Five other patients came forward to make complaints of rape against him, but their testimonies were rejected owing to a lack of forensic evidence.
They included two sisters whose mother had been befriended by Krombach. He took them on holiday to London and the south of France where, they alleged, he gave them injections of iron and cobalt and raped them. One was just 14.
For raping the 16-year-old girl Krombach was given a two-year suspended sentence struck-off. But in 2006 he was found to be practising without a medical licence. He was prosecuted and served 18 months in jail.
French authorities eventually issued a European arrest warrant for Krombach but the GERMAN AUTHORITIES continued to block it. Kalinka’s grey-haired paternal dad hired two men to kidnap Krombach from Germany and take him across the border into France.
They dumped him – bound, gagged and bleeding – outside a prosecutor’s office in the town of Mulhouse, where police found him. In 2011, Krombach, 75, was convicted and jailed for 15 years for administering the injection which killed his stepdaughter.
A woman former lay JUDGE in a youth court in Germany is thought to have headed a child abuse ring that murdered a five-year-old boy.
Police have arrested 12 men and women thought to have abused the dead boy, his friend, now aged seven, and an even younger girl and possibly other children.
The boy, named only as Pascal, was killed in September 2001, according to statements made to police by several of the arrested adults. His body has not been found and a search has been taking place in a quarry just over the border in France.
The abuse took place in the back room of a pub run by the former judge, named only as Christa W.
She had legal custody of Pascal’s friend when he was six, granted by a former colleague at the YOUTH MINISTRY who is now also under investigation.
He was removed from her care after complaining that she, her partner and his own mother and her boyfriend sexually abused him.
Florida POLICE SERGEANT, Kyle A. Kirby, was convicted of raping minors, and producing and possessing child pornography using government equipment.37-year-old Kirby was found to be committing these horrific crimes while on duty using a camera and laptop that was paid for with tax-payer money.Instead of serving and protecting citizens, he was raping children and uploading videos of the attacks to a pedophile ring from his squad car computer.The former Live Oak Police Department sergeant was arrested on Oct. 22, 2015, when investigators searched his home and found indecent videos and images of children that had been cataloged using his victim’s names, according to the U.S. Attorney’s Office.
On Tuesday, Nui – released from jail by a JUDGE on Aug 23, 2012 – was sentenced again for sodomising a seven-year-old boy on Phu Pha Sing mountain in Nong Ya Plong sub-district of Wang Saphung district, in the northeastern province of Loei, on Nov 10, 2013.
He lured the boy away from a fair at Wat Sri Udomwong to the mountain, where he abused and murdered him. His confession after his later arrest led officials to the body.
In March last year, the same man was sentenced to life imprisonment for the rape and murder of a 6-year-old girl known as Nong Cartoon. He lured her from her parents’ pickup truck, where she had been left…
His first victim was a seven-year-old girl who went to a temple fair alone in Puai Noi on Jan 18, 2008. He tried unsuccessfully to rape her, then to strangle her. The girl, however, survived, and identified him following his arrest. He served three years and eight months in prison in Phon district of Khon Kaen and was released by a JUDGE on Aug 23, 2012.
He told police he had attacked about 10 children, and killed four of them.
Andrew Timothy Davies was found guilty by jury verdict in June of the rape and abduction of two girls in a Nagambie primary school last year.
It was the FOUTH time that Davies, 34, formerly of Ardeer, had been convicted of sex offences in schools and kindergartens.
Darren Reynolds, 45, of Wagtail Drive, Heybridge, had asked the schoolgirl: “Do you like it darling?” while sitting on bench in Grange Hill, Coggeshall, with his penis exposed.
Yet police traced him after the “courageous” girl filmed his car registration plate, before singling him out in a police identity parade.
At his Chelmsford Crown Court sentencing hearing on Thursday, Patricia Lynch QC told Reynolds has 20 PREVIOUS CONVICTIONS for 61 OFFENCES.
Courts that are like an A&E unit on a Saturday night, violent abusers walking free because evidence has gone missing, and lawyers doing hours of unpaid work to keep the system from collapse, are all part of a damning picture painted in a new book on the legal system by a barrister.
According to the anonymous author of The Secret Barrister: Stories Of The Law And How It’s Broken, the courts in England and Wales have been brought to their knees by government cuts and left so plagued by daily errors they are no longer fit for purpose.
The identity of the writer of this fly-on-the-wall account of what goes on in courtrooms across the country is a well-guarded secret – and the subject of online curiosity among a Twitter following of 87,000.
Adil Rashid an 18-year-old muslim who raped a 13-year-old girl he groomed on Facebook has been spared a prison sentence after a judge heard he went to an Islamic faith school where he was taught that women are worthless.
Adil Rashid claimed he was not aware that it was illegal for him to rape the girl because his education left him ignorant of British law.
Yesterday Judge Michael Stokes handed Rashid a suspended sentence, saying: ‘Although chronologically 18, it is quite clear from the reports that you are very naive and immature when it comes to sexual matters.’
Earlier Nottingham Crown Court heard that such crimes usually result in a four to seven-year prison sentence.
But the judge said that because Rashid was ‘passive’ and ‘lacking assertiveness’, sending him to jail might cause him ‘more damage than good’.
New York ATTORNEY GENERAL Eric Schneiderman was accused of violent abuse by four women—and reportedly told one, “I am the law.” This isn’t an isolated attitude: According to research, at least 40 percent of police officer families experience domestic violence.
Montville, OH – Former Montville Township, Ohio, police officer and former Wayne County probation officer, Carl Kannenberg, was charged with raping a 7-year-old girl while she was a patient at University Hospital in February.
According to the indictment cited by Cleveland 19, the law enforcement officer “is charged with committing anal penetration and with inappropriate sexual contact” for sexual assaults which Cleveland.com says occurred multiple times. Inexplicably, Kannenberg, 34, who was arrested on July 12, has since been released pending arraignment on August 17. Police sexual misconduct is so common that more than 1,000 officers have had their licenses revoked in just the last six years for it — nearly half of them involve underage victims.
Dutch JUDGE will allow pedophile group
A Dutch court has turned down a request to ban a political party with a pedophile agenda.
Judge HFM Hofhuis ruled that the Brotherly Love, Freedom and Diversity Party (PNVD) had the same right to exist as any other political party.
The PNVD was formed by three pedophiles in May, prompting outrage in Dutch society.
It seeks to lower the age of sexual consent from 16 to 12 and legalise child pornography and sex with animals.
“Freedom of expression…including the freedom to set up a political party can be seen as the basis for a democratic society,” Judge Hofhuis said in the ruling, according to the Associated Press news agency.
“It is the right of the voter to judge the appeal of political parties,” he said.
Washoe County JUDGE Charles “Chuck” Weller allegedly made inappropriate remarks about women at a meeting on domestic violence in February last year, according to an ethical complaint recently filed against him.
Judge Weller, who issues and oversees applications for temporary protective orders, among other duties, is the second family court judge accused of ethical misconduct in the past month by the Nevada Commission on Judicial Discipline.
Weller was meeting with the Washoe County Domestic Violence Task Force when he said women should be worried about proposed cuts to the Violence Against Women Act. According to the complaint, Weller said the cuts “will put women back in their place.”
Margie Chavez, an employee at the Domestic Violence Resource Centre, was among five women at the meeting. According to the complaint, she asked Weller, “Are you saying that we need to be in a place?”
The compliant said Judge Weller responded by saying: “Yes, the kitchen and the bedroom.”
When reached by phone, Weller said he will be filing a response to the complaint through his attorney and declined further comment.
Pedophile, child killer Harold Smeltzer admits to being ‘attracted’ to underage girl while on day parole
Five-year-old Kimmie was on her way to kindergarten on Jan. 24, 1980.
Smeltzer kidnapped her. He went on to drown in her in a bathtub and dump her tiny body in a garbage. Her body was found the next day. He was convicted of first-degree murder.
But despite the recent incident, the board has extended Smeltzer’s freedoms.
He’s once again been granted day parole for the next six months and his overnight privileges have also been extended. The board has noted the seriousness of Smeltzer’s crimes: he’s admitted to as many as 40 sexual assaults against young girls. But it’s not enough to revoke his day parole.
“The PAROLE BOARD is satisfied that your risk would not be undue on a further period of day parole and that your ongoing release will continue to facilitate your successful reintegration into the community.”
The level three SEX OFFENDER accused of sexually assaulting a teenage girl last week at his home in Westfield was GRANTED SOLE CUSTODY of his young daughter in 2010, despite a previous conviction for raping a child, according to court records reviewed by MassLive.
In 1998, Jesse James Caisse was sentenced to seven to 10 years in prison for forcible rape of a child. Yet in 2010, after his release and the completion of two years of probation, he was awarded sole custody of his biological daughter, then a toddler, by a Hampshire County Probate and Family Court judge. On Saturday, he was arrested on charges of indecent assault and battery after allegedly sexually assaulting a teenage girl who he had invited to his home to visit with his daughter.
Shocking details have emerged of how a multimillionaire heir to the du Pont chemical business was convicted of raping his three-year-old daughter but escaped serving prison time after a Delaware Superior Court JUDGE ruled he would ‘not fare well’ in jail.
Robert H. Richards IV was charged with fourth-degree rape in 2009 after he admitted that he had raped his daughter almost a decade ago.
News of the shocking leniency shown to Richards, 46, only emerged on Tuesday in the details of a lawsuit filed against him by his ex-wife Tracy.
According to the lawsuit filed by Richards’ ex-wife, he also admitted to sexually assaulting his infant son in addition to his daughter between 2005 and 2007.
Richards was initially indicted on two counts of second-degree child rape, felonies that translate to a 10-year mandatory jail sentence per count. He was released on $60,000 bail while awaiting his charges. Richards hired one of the state’s top law firms and was offered a plea deal of one count of fourth-degree rape charges – which carried no mandatory minimum prison sentencing. Currently on probation, Richards has never been charged with crimes against his son.
A man accused of pedophiliac acts will be allowed to remain living with his newborn twin daughters it was decided in Mandurah Magistrates COURT JUDGE today.

MAHONING COUNTY, Ohio – A Mahoning County judge is accused of stealing between $96,200 and $328,000 from a former client.
Judge Diane Vettori Caraballo, 49, of Youngstown, is charged with fraud, among other crimes.
Prosecutors say the judge was helping to draft a will when she was told about shoe boxes of cash left in the client’s home.
The government claims she took the money, deposited it into five banks and didn’t report it to the IRS.
“If this was the 1950s and you had a jury of 12 men there, which is what you’d invariably have, they would say it’s unnatural for a man to be interested in another man or a man being interested in a boy. THOSE THINGS HAVE GONE,” says a JUDGE Neilson.
Judge Neilson made the comments during the trial of a brother charged with raping his younger sister. The man has pleaded guilty to sexually assaulting his sister when she was 10 or 11 years old in 1973 or 1974 but has pleaded not guilty to charges relating to sex they had in 1981, when she was 18 and he was 26.

Roger Gilbert then listed as volunteer fire chief in the small Pennsylvania town of Spartansburg. In fact, the 43-year-old just got re-elected. The problem, though, is you’ll also find his name listed in the state’s Megan’s Law database for sex offenders, reports the Corry Journal. Spartansburg is about 40 miles southeast of Erie, notes PhillyVoice, which points out Gilbert was elected twice to his post as chief by his fellow firefighters, not the public.
Pedophiles who view indecent images but do not molest children should not be jailed, Chief Constable Simon Bailey of the National Police Chief’s Council and leading child protection police officer has said.
A POLICE inspector was part of a South Wales pedophile ring which regularly met online to discuss how they could abuse children under 13, a court has heard.

Accused Batterers Get Free Attorneys. BUT VICTIMS OF Domestic Violence Don’t.
A CHILD sex predator spared jail because a JUDGE granted leniency for a series of bizarre reasons — such as his high cholesterol and sleeping problems — is still a member of the church where he abused young girls.
The 55-year-old Dubbo man — who can only be referred to as “TM” — was given a suspended sentence in June despite pleading guilty to eight child sex offences that occurred on two girls. They were aged just 8 and 10 when the abuse began. Judge John North granted “a discount” for a variety of “reasons” including that TM, who was aged from 19 to 26 (7 years) when the abuse took place, was “sexually inexperienced”
One of his relatives yesterday revealed he is still involved with the religion and regularly attends conferences where there are hundreds of kids.
The church cannot be named because of a non-publication order on TM’s name and any information that could identify him.
One of the victims, whose name also has a non-publication order on it despite her wanting to speak out, said she had recently spoken to the church leader about her concerns but was ignored.
Chief Justice Tom Bathurst behind judicial paedophile and bribery cover-up evidence shows
CHIEF JUSTICE TOM BATHURST BEHIND JUDICIAL PEDOPHILE AND BRIBERY COVER-UP EVIDENCE SHOWS
Court evidence filed by NSW Police has the witness statement of NSW Supreme Court registrar Chris D’Aeth which shows Chief Justice Tom Bathurst has conspired with others since September 2016 trying to jail journalist Shane Dowling for making judicial pedophile and bribery allegations against 16 judges , including Bathurst, in an article he published in September 2016. The article is titled “Pedophile priest gets 3 months jail for raping 3 boys by NSW Supreme Court’s Justice Hoeben” and also part of the police’s brief of evidence. (Click here to read more) The allegations have gone unchallenged by any of the judges named by Mr Dowling in the article but Registrar Rebel Kenna did ultimately make a retaliatory complaint which led to the police charge.
What is very disturbing is that while Chief Justice Tom Bathurst were secretly trying to have Shane Dowling jailed he was jailed for 4 months by Chief Justice Tom Bathurst’s Supreme Court in an unrelated freedom of speech matter.
There is no doubt there is a bribery racket in the NSW courts and a pedophile ring/protection racket. In the last few weeks alone Sydney magistrate Graeme Curran has been charged with historic child sex offences (Click here to read more) and District Court Judge John North gave a pedophile a suspended sentence and protected him by suppressing his name. (Click here to read more) Justice North needs to be sacked then fully investigated.
Kerry Stokes’ involvement
Seven West Media’s lawyers have been working to get access to the police evidence. One has to assume that Seven’s owner Kerry Stokes is worried there is evidence in the police file that he is involved in the judicial bribery and/or pedophile ring as I have written numerous articles accusing him of judicial bribery which he has never denied.
ALBANY, N.Y. – The 18-year-old woman was driving with two friends near Coney Island in September when the two plainclothes detectives pulled her over and found marijuana. The police officers released the two male passengers, handcuffed the woman and told her she was under arrest, prosecutors say.
Then, investigators say, detectives Eddie Martins and Richard Hall repeatedly sexually assaulted her before releasing her on Sept 5. The woman went to the hospital, where prosecutors say DNA was obtained that matched both men.
According to the victim, named Anna, the officers brutally took turns raping her inside an undercover NYPD van, CBS New York reports.
But the officers have pleaded not guilty to rape and other charges, and the case has highlighted an apparent loophole in the laws of New York and many other states that may allow police to escape sexual assault charges by claiming sex acts were consensual. While New York law already bars sexual contact between corrections workers and inmates, it doesn’t apply explicitly to police.
“I was shocked,” Democratic state Sen. Diane Savino said of when she learned of the oversight. “It should be clear across the state for officers from every department, that when someone is in custody they do not have the ability to consent to sexual activity.”
In McHenry’s case, the trooper drove a woman away from the scene of a car accident the night of Dec. 6 and threatened to take her to jail if she didn’t have sex with him, according to a warrant.

McHenry drove the woman to a closed store after having sex with her, then let her out and drove off, investigators have said. Alabama Law Enforcement Agency spokesman Sgt. Steve Jarrett said McHenry began working as a trooper in 2009.
GREENVILLE, Ala. — An ex-Alabama state trooper who was accused of raping a woman while he was on duty was sentenced to six months in jail after he pleaded guilty Thursday to a misdemeanour sexual misconduct charge.

Pedophile Dad Raped Baby Daughter to Death After Watching Child Porn Coroner reveals 13-month-old Poppi Worthington died from sexual abuse
But the former supermarket worker, Paul, escaped prosecution because of a bungled police investigation. Key evidence, including Poppi’s last nappies, the pyjama bottoms she was wearing and a computer Mr. Paul Worthington used to watch pornography, were lost. Former police officer Lindsey Bolton told the hearing that the laptop Mr. Worthington used to watch ‘adult X-rated’ porn and child pornography in bed on the night Poppi died was never recovered by police and there were no ‘proactive’ attempts by officers to trace it. [Author’s note: I suspect that the computer was recovered.]
UK: Police dropped cases against 20 Muslim [youth prostitution] rape gang members in Telford, they were “too much trouble”
West Mercia’s Assistant Chief Constable Martin Evans claimed that the cases were dropped for many reasons: “These included the fact that there would have been a requirement for victims to give evidence in court, furthering their ordeal.”
But one of the victims said: “I was never told about these orders or asked if I would give evidence in court against my abusers. If I had been asked, I would have done.”
GARDAI (Police) are re-examining the Dalkey “house of horrors” case and claims that a pedophile ring allegedly led by a garda (POLICE OFFICER) was involved in the rape and abuse of children.
The investigation is alongside another case review in regard to the pedophile Irish language figure, Domhnall O Lubhlai, who evaded imprisonment during almost 50 years of sex abusing boys.
Both renewed investigations will examine claims that pedophile rapists were able to use judicial influence to hinder scrutiny of their activities.
Cynthia Owen, the mother at age only 11 of a murdered baby, named 12 men who called to the Murphy family house regularly and paid Peter Murphy and his wife Josie, both of whom are now dead, to rape and abuse her and the other children. Six of the men named by Cynthia are also dead. Two of those still alive were members of the Garda.
All the men and the other children were questioned and all denied the allegations. But Cynthia’s brother, Martin, committed suicide in 1995 and another brother, Michael, disappeared in 2002. His body was found in undergrowth near Killiney DART Station in 2005.
Theresa Murphy, who was Cynthia’s niece but brought up as her sister, also committed suicide in 2005 after hearing of the discovery of her brother’s body. She left behind a 34-page suicide note detailing the rape and abuse she had suffered as a child at the hands of Peter Murphy and other men.
An inquiry into the garda 1973 murder investigation was carried out by senior counsel Patrick Gageby following the inquest, which found that “most of the surrounding documents and exhibits, some time after that date, were lost or mislaid.” The missing evidence included blood samples, the bin bag and blood-stained sanitary towels and newspaper found with the baby’s body. The infant had been stabbed to death with a knitting needle, which was never recovered.
A retired Garda inspector, who was the station sergeant in Dun Laoghaire at the time, subsequently told the 2005 inquest that he had not made a statement purporting to have been made and signed by him and which was among the remaining evidence. The retired garda, Eddie Russell, has since died and no explanation was ever brought forward as to how the statement came to be in evidence.
Despite the fact there was common local suspicion, gardai never interviewed the Murphys in 1973.
Since then, Cynthia Owen has repeatedly called for a public examination of the garda investigation into her [baby] daughter’s murder.
CRIMINAL DEFENCE ATTORNEY Michael Edward Harssema has been charged with sexual assault of a child. He has been practicing law in Texas since 1999, according to the State Bar of Texas website. According to a police report obtained by Channel 11, the girl met the attorney who was representing her mother, in the summer of 2013. The lawyer then asked the mother if he could speak to the girl about the case. As they made their way back to the girl’s home in McKinney, Harssema stopped by a 7-Eleven and bought a beer for himself and a Four Loko drink — a flavoured malt alcoholic beverage for her. According to police, the man stopped the car in a neighbourhood in Allen and ignored repeated calls from the girl’s mother. He then raped the girl in the back seat, according to police documents. He took her home in the morning and told his client that his car broke down and his phone was dead.

Care scandal: Court brings forward case of ‘pimped out’ autistic woman
The case of a young autistic woman who was allowed to have sex with numerous men as part of a “learning experience” will go before a senior High Court judge next week.
Proceedings have been brought forward after The Times revealed that a court JUDGE allowed her serial sexual exploitation over two months this summer. Men she barely knew arrived at her home to have sex with her. The woman, 23, has severe learning disabilities and an IQ of 52. Her carers allegedly believed that the high-risk sexual encounters might help her to “learn from her mistakes”.
Details of the Manchester case were disclosed on Thursday after another court judge ordered the release of key documents to this newspaper.

Washington Times – Thursday 29 June 1989 – Homosexual prostitution enquiry ensnares VIP’s with REAGAN, BUSH. “Call boys” took midnight tour of White House.
UK Gov Pedo Ring Exposed 60 Minutes Australia [53:17]
Finally the hunt is on to nail those responsible for aborting police inquiries into the child sex abuse allegations against the late Liberal MP Cyril Smith and other – as yet unnamed – establishment figures from the 1970s and 1980s. But his abuses have been covered up and ignored for over 35 years. Why should the victims feel that anything much has changed in recent days?
I write as co-editor of the Rochdale Alternative Paper, which in May 1979published a 2,000 word article, quoting in graphic detail from the testimonies of boys Smith had sexually abused a decade and a half earlier.
We also wrote to the then leader of the Liberal party, David Steel, for his comments. We quoted the response of the Liberal party press office, dated 22 April 1979, in our newspaper: “It is not a very friendly gesture, publishing that, all he seems to have done is spanked a few bare bottoms.” So, Steel chose to look the other way, and within a decade was recommending Smith for a knighthood. Fleet Street looked away at the time too.
Files on Smith’s child abuse were passed around police forces and the security services in the 1970s and 1980s – with no prosecutions. More covering up and inaction, instead of an end to his abuse.
The political honours scrutiny committee drew Margaret Thatcher’s attention to the Smith files in 1988, prior to her agreeing to a knighthood for him. She could have intervened, but chose to honour him – a further insult to his victims. Rochdale council made Smith a freeman of the borough, named a room in the town hall after him and, in a ceremony attended by the current MP Simon Danczuk, put up a blue plaque in his honour – now taken down, apparently to prevent vandalism. More rubbing the noses of many victims in their misery, on their home patch.

Kentucky’s ‘child bride’ bill stalls as groups fight to let 13-year-olds wed
FRANKFORT, Ky. — A bill to make 18 the legal age for marriage in Kentucky has stalled in a Senate committee amid concerns about the rights of parents to allow children to wed at a younger age, according to several lawmakers. Eileen Recktenwald, the executive director of the Kentucky Association of Sexual Assault Programs, was more outspoken.
“This is legalised rape of children,” she said. “We cannot allow that to continue in Kentucky, and I cannot believe we are even debating this is the year 2018 in the United States.”
Donna Pollard, a Louisville woman who said she was married at 16 to an older man who began sexually abusing her when she was 14, has advocated for the bill. She toldCourier Journal that opponents include the Kentucky Family Foundation, a Lexington-based conservative group that lobbies lawmakers on social issues.
Pollard said the man she now calls her “perpetrator” became violent and abusive after they married in 2000, a wedding she said was encouraged by her mother, who married at 13.
The provision involving a judge appears to have bothered some lawmakers, including Sen. John Schickel, a Boone County Republican.
“I had some problems with the bill,” he said Thursday. “Decisions involving a minor child should be made by a parent, not the court.”

Former Rep. Anthony Weiner was sentenced Monday to 21 months in federal prison for sexting with a minor.
In addition to the prison term, Weiner also was sentenced to three years of supervised release.
In May, Weiner, 53, pleaded guilty to one charge of transferring obscene material to a minor in federal court in Manhattan. The charges stem from communications that the former congressman had with a 15-year-old girl on social media sites between January and March 2016. Cote added that at the time Weiner was communicating with the girl, he was “in contact with 19 other women,” a point the defence had used to argue Weiner did not have an abnormal interest in teenagers. Weiner resigned from Congress after a lewd picture appeared on his Twitter page in June 2011. Sexually charged, sometimes explicit, texts with women also emerged around this time.
In 2013, Weiner sought to revive his political career by running for mayor of New York. Two months after he announced his candidacy, screenshots surfaced of sexual conversations that Weiner had with a woman the previous year.

Hillary Clinton Issues a Non-Apology for Shielding a [Sex] Harasser: The Daily Show (5:18)
Police have uncovered a pedophile ring operating at a Kindergarten in China run by the Clinton Foundation.
An investigation has revealed that children at the Clinton-run nursery school were routinely forced to strip naked and then raped and tortured by the sadistic people that ran the institution. Disobedient Media reports: The Clinton Foundation is facing renewed criticism after it was revealed that one of the foundation’s former executives, Joel Getz, was also an independent Director at RYB Education. RYB Education is the parent company of a Beijing kindergarten at the center of a massive scandal in China that emerged in the wake of allegations toddlers were being injected with drugs and possibly sexually abused.
CNN wrote: “State-run Xinhua news agency reported that police have opened an investigation into RYB Xintiandi, a private kindergarten in Beijing, after numerous parents accused the school of drugging and molesting their children. Beijing’s education authority confirmed the police investigation in a statement.” The Beijing-located kindergarten was shut down in the wake of the allegations.
BBC reported on the uproar: “A Beijing nursery is accused of giving injections and feeding drugs to toddlers, in a case that has sparked outrage in China. Authorities are now investigating the nursery, which is a branch of the well-known RYB Education chain. At least eight children attending the RYB Education pre-school in the upscale Chaoyang district are said to have been injected with unknown substances…”
CNN reported that some parents are also alleging possible sexual abuse, saying their children were stripped naked.
The Daily Mail related that Chinese police had detained three daycare staff for suspected abuse. This latest debacle is not the first time RYB Education schools have been the center of abuse allegations. The Daily Mailwrote that “RYB already apologised in April and suspended the head of a Beijing kindergarten after admitting that teachers committed “severe mistakes”. The Beijing News had obtained videos showing teachers throwing a child on a bed and kicking another in the back.” There was an additional RYB-related scandal in northeast Jilin province in October 2016.
Joel Getz is shown in a document published by Reuters to have been an independent Director at RYB Education, in addition to his former role at the Clinton Foundation and his work for Yale as Senior Associate Dean for Development and Alumni Relations.
“He didn’t shake my hand,” Lind wrote. “He touched me from behind from his wheelchair with his wife Barbara Bush by his side. He told me a dirty joke. And then, all the while being photographed, touched me again. Barbara rolled her eyes as if to say ‘not again.’ His security guard told me I shouldn’t have stood next to him for the photo.”
Lind said she has learned to use her own personal power against those who wield theirs inappropriately. “It seems to me a President’s power is in his or her capacity to enact positive change, actually help people, and serve as a symbol of our democracy. He relinquished that power when he used it against me and, judging from the comments of those around him, countless other women before me. What comforts me is that I too can use my power, which isn’t so different from a President really.”
Liberal senator Bill Heffernan says the royal commission failed to properly investigate lawyers who allegedly attended a “boy brothel”, as new details emerge of a “secret list” containing the names of high-profile alleged pedophiles.
The controversial Liberal senator used parliamentary privilege on Wednesday to claim that a former Australian prime minister was on the [“boy brothel”] list, which he claims forms part of a police document.
Many of the people on the list and otherwise named in the documents were “prominent” and were delivered to me by a police agency some time ago because no one seems to want to deal with them.”
He also claimed every Commonwealth attorney-general since Philip Ruddock had seen the list.
Impunity for US government workers using child porn (6:19)
New Brunswick will make no policy changes to prevent criminals from living in special care homes among residents with physical, emotional and intellectual disabilities, according to the minister of seniors and long-term care.
Lisa Harris sent an email recently to the mother whose son, with cognitive and physical impairments, was sexually assaulted last year by a registered sex offender resident. (Social development had placed the man, who had two prior convictions, in the same special care home as the woman’s son.) She said employees of special care homes are screened for criminal records and must also undergo Social Development record checks.
That would detect any contraventions under the Family Services Act such as endangering a child’s security or development. However, residents of special care homes are not subjected to either. “…the Department of Social Development does not require a criminal record check or a Social Development Record Check for special care home residents,” explained Lisa Harris in her email to the mother.
Examples of psychiatrists and psychologists aiding and abetting child trauma, and practising child sex abuse:
Experts’ report, for taking a little girl from her mother, concluded that the little girl’s “development would be limited” if she remained with her mother. The report said: “This is because the mother does not recognise her daughter’s basic needs and does not perceive the mental harm she may have suffered” while in her mother’s care.
April this year, and one of those two experts – the male psychiatrist – reappeared in the same courthouse.
This time, though, he wasn’t in the witness stand.
He was sentenced to 22 months in jail – after admitting he had downloaded nearly 200,000 images, and more than 12,000 videos, showing the sexual abuse or sexualisation of children.
The court heard that some appeared to show infants being raped.
Norwegian police were initially tipped off that the man was downloading illegal child abuse images in 2015.
But it wasn’t until early 2017 – a year and a half later – that they investigated and then arrested him.

The tribunal on Tuesday found that Dr de Saxe was not currently fit to practice “and that he may remain so for some time”.
Dr de Saxe told one patient — a 36-year-old man who was alleged to have had sexual contact with children — that he did not agree with the law and that “it was alright to do this”, saying “in other countries it is legal” and “back in Greek times it was OK,” the tribunal found.
He was also found to have offered to lie for the patient, whom he was treating at Mosman Private Hospital in August and September 2010, by providing false or misleading information to be used in the patient’s defence in court.
A former California mental hospital director who prosecutors alleged had a history of sexually abusing young boys was convicted Thursday of molesting his adopted son.
A Long Beach jury found Dr. Claude Edward Foulk, 63, guilty on 31 counts of sexual molestation, including lewd acts on a child and sodomy by use of force. He was acquitted on four other counts.
Now 27, his son, a former foster child who was later adopted by Foulk, testified that he was abused from age 9 until he fled home at 21. He said he was “beyond happy” at the verdict.

Kevin Sorbo said he was invited to dinner parties with the fashion designer and one time when he showed up to dine, no one except for Gianni Versace was there.
“All of a sudden, his hand goes up my leg,” Sorbo recalled. “[I told him], ‘Dude, you know I’m straight?'”

“I knew the game, just like I know the game of Hollywood,” Sorbo told The Hollywood Reporter. “Casting couches have always been around. I don’t play that game, nor do I care to.”
A woman molested on live TV by Jimmy Savile has slammed the inquiry in which BBC bosses said they were unaware of his sex crimes.

She told the Sun: “Of course the BBC knew. In my case it’s even on video for God’s sake.”
The shocking Top of the Pops clip emerged showing a smirking Savile fondling Edwards.
The review by retired judge Dame Janet Smith condemns the corporation over its “deferential culture” and “untouchable stars”, and criticises it for having managers who were “above the law”.
The draft report suggests Savile, carried out four rapes and one attempted rape while at the BBC, among 61 incidents of sexual assault.
The inquiry was leaked online to website Exaro and also warns that it was possible another “predatory child abuser could be lurking undiscovered in the BBC even today”.
London: The BRITISH BROADCASTING CORPORATION, whose “internal culture” was described as “rotten” by a prominent British politician, has a record of trying to cover up sexual attacks by its own employees, including cancelling a TV programme on a BBC star personality, Jimmy Savile, who was a serial child rapist.
BBC canceled the investigative report exposing its popular presenter Jimmy Savile’s predatory sexual attacks on scores of children that was scheduled to have been broadcast in December 2011 in the Newsnight programme.
Just last week a report by a panel investigating Savile’s sexual crimes at one of the hospitals where he volunteered reported that he had attacked 60 people there, about half of them under 16 years, some as young as eight.
A report by the Metropolitan Police and the Britain’s National Society for the Prevention of Cruelty to Children said in 2013 that 214 criminal offences have been formally recorded in which Savile is a suspect and these took place from 1955 to 2009. Many of the abuses took place in 14 medical establishments.
Another batch of reports published today on the scale of Jimmy Savile’s abuse at NHS hospitals over half a century add to the mass of evidence against the former BBC DJ. A separate report was also published on Thursday regarding allegations of sexual abuse made against Savile’s older brother Johnny, who died in 1998.

ACTOR Mark Salling, 33, who plays the “bad boy” in Glee, has been released on $US20,000 ($29,100) bail after being arrested for possessing child sex images.
Electronic devices allegedly containing thousands of images of sex scenes involving under-age children, some aged under 10 years, according to TMZ sources.
His ascent to fame was tarnished by a 2013 lawsuit by his then girlfriend, who accused him of shoving her and forcing unprotected sex when she had requested he use a condom.
Exciting news for fans of Capt. Alfred Dreyfus—Roman Polanski will get to continue filming a movie about him in Poland after the country rejected an extradition request from the United States.
Polanski, of course, was convicted in 1977 for plying a 13-year-old girl with champagne and drugs before having sex with her at Jack Nicholson’s house. But after serving 45 days of a 90-day sentence, Polanski fled the country. He’s been living in Europe ever since.
On Nov. 21, Fernando Rivas, 59, an AWARD-WINNING COMPOSER for “Sesame Street,” was arraigned on charges of coercing a child “to engage in sexually explicit conduct” in South Carolina. The Juilliard-trained composer was also charged with production and distribution of child pornography.
Registered sex offender Jason James Murphy, 35, worked as a CASTING AGENT in Hollywood for years before his past kidnapping and sexual abuse of a boy was revealed by the Los Angeles Times on Nov. 17. Murphy’s credits include placing young actors in kid-friendly fare like “Bad News Bears,” “The School of Rock,” “Cheaper by the Dozen 2” and the forthcoming “Three Stooges.”
“This has been going on for a very long time,” concurs former “Little House on the Prairie” star Alison Arngrim. “It was the gossip back in the ‘80s. People said, ‘Oh yeah, the Coreys, everyone’s had them.’ People talked about it like it was not a big deal.”
Arngrim, 49, was referring to Feldman and his co-star in “The Lost Boys,” Corey Haim, who died in March 2010 after years of drug abuse.
“I literally heard that they were ‘passed around,’” Arngrim said. “The word was that they were given drugs and being used for sex. It was awful – these were kids. There were all sorts of stories about everyone from their, quote, ‘set guardians’ on down that these two had been sexually abused and were totally being corrupted in every possible way.” Arngrim, who revealed her own sexual abuse in her 2010 autobiography, “Confessions of a Prairie Bitch,” explains: “I’ve heard from victims from all over the country. Everyone tells the same kind of story, everyone is told to keep it secret, everyone is threatened with something.”
Hollywood’s dirty secret: Sex abuse? (00:6:20)
Robert De Niro Caught In International Underage Prostitution Ring
According to court records from 1998, Independent journalist John Lichfield discovered that the prostitution agency routinely ensnared girls as young as 15, forcing them to have sex with Hollywood’s rich and powerful elite.
The French Vice Squad traced 89 young women who said they had been tricked or sometimes physically constrained by the agency into working for them. The girls were sometimes “sold on like cattle” to other call-girl agencies.
While it is not clear whether or not De Niro was supplied with underage girls, his involvement in the ring received little to no media coverage.
It also exposes attempts by the French government machine to block an investigation. Seems France did not want to embarrass senior politicians and damage French interests abroad.
An actor and a crew member from the top-rating TV drama The Doctor Blake Mysteries have come forward with allegations Craig McLachlan sexually harassed staff and behaved inappropriately on the set.
The new allegations include that he held a banana to his crotch and thrust it into the faces of an actress and a director.
He is also accused of “dry humping” a female crew member during the production and telling a male crew member who offered to get him a drink “I’d prefer a hand job”.
The crew member who worked on Dr Blake in late 2016 said he was shocked at McLachlan’s behaviour on set, which seemed to be accepted.
“A lot of the time it was sexual innuendo, sexual joking, talking about sex and that filtered through,” he said.
“But right from the start, in my first few days there I thought, ‘surely not everyone is OK with this’. Privately, over time during the two-and-a-half months I was there, people said ‘this is the worst set, for this kind of stuff, that I have ever been on’.
The male crew member told the ABC and Fairfax “there is no possibility that they didn’t know he was up to inappropriate behaviour”.
“I don’t know how blind and deaf you have to be to miss this stuff,” he said.
Brooke Shields at Age 10 SHOCKING PHOTOS Pizzagate Hollywood (5:27)
Shirley Temple – pedogate hollywood (12:53)
Hollywood Producers Repeatedly Tried to Rape Shirley Temple
When she was only 11 years old, her and her mother went to MGM Studios to discuss the possibility of having Shirley star as Dorothy in The Wizard of Oz. Left alone with the Jewish producer, Arthur Freed, he immediately whipped his schlong out:
“I have something made for just you,” he continued, fumbling in his lap. “You’ll be my new star!”
Shirley Temple, fortunately enough, did not star in Wizard of Oz, and thus got away from these rotten kikes. Judy Garland, on the other hand, was not so lucky: she was reportedly abused and molested relentlessly by Mayer during filming, ruining her entire life.
When Shirley Temple was 15 she met with Jewish producer David O. Selznick of Gone With the Wind fame to try out for the role of Bridget “Brig” Hilton in his movie Since you Went Away. She says, “Pulling free, I turned for the door, but even more quickly he reached back over the edge of his desk and flicked a switch I had learned from Colby was a remote door-locking device. I was trapped. Like the cartoon of wolf and piglet, once again we circled and reversed directions around his furniture. Blessed with the agility of a young dancer and confronted by an amorous but overweight producer, I had little difficulty avoiding passionate clumsiness.”
“It’s just the grease that oils Hollywood’s wheels,” he laughed, feinting ineffectively.
On another occasion, Shirley had a run-in on a train with the producer of the movie Mr. Belvedere Goes to College, whom she identifies only as “the Wizard” (hint: the producer of that movie was the Jew Samuel G. Engel):
A short time later, famous Jew actor, singer/songwriter and movie producer George Jessel asked her to his office to “discuss a key role” in his upcoming film.
He wasted no time in revealing what he really wanted from her:
Judy Garland was 16 when she won the role of Dorothy in the MGM musical in 1938 and it was to mark both the beginning and the end of her career. The insecure teenager was by that time addicted to barbiturates and amphetamines and was on the road to alcoholism. In addition, she was routinely molested by older men including studio chiefs who considered her little more than their “property”.
“X-Men” director Bryan Singer is being accused of drugging, raping, and using his power to exploit a teenage boy in a lawsuit filed Wednesday, according to court documents obtained by TheWrap.
According to the lawsuit filed in federal court in Hawaii, plaintiff Michael Egan, who was named in a press release by his lawyers, was 17 when he was forcibly sodomised by Singer, among other accusations.
“ER” actor Anthony Edwards in an online post on Friday accused producer and writer of Gary Goddard of molesting him as a child.
“I was molested by Goddard, my best friend was raped by him — and this went on for years. The group of us, the gang, stayed quiet,” Edwards said victims of sexual abuse as children often feel responsible “ as if it is somehow their fault” and that many years later he got help from a therapist.
Actor Elijah Wood claims that Hollywood’s entertainment industry is rife with sexual abuse of young boys and girls — and that senior figures within it have been protecting pedophiles for decades.
In an interview with the Sunday Times, the Lord of the Rings star — who began acting in Hollywood at age nine — claimed that “organised” sexual abuse of children has taken place in the entertainment industry and compared the situation to that of notorious British pedophile Jimmy Savile…
Michael Jackson’s former housekeeper has agreed to back in court a choreographer’s claim that the pop superstar molested him in the shower when he was a boy, it has been claimed.
Blanca Francia, 57, says she walked in on The King of Pop showering with Australian Wade Robson, then eight, and has at last summoned up the courage to describe what she saw to a judge.
Robson, 30, claims he was abused by Jackson for seven years who told him he’d go to jail for the rest of his life if he told anyone about it.
The choreographer approached Ms Francia to testify at his abuse civil lawsuit last week, according to reports, but only now has she agreed to do so, claiming Jackson also abused her son, Jason.
She told the Daily Mirror: ‘Michael Jackson abused Wade. My opinion has never wavered. We have been through a lot since then.
‘They [Wade’s lawyers] would have to subpoena me to appear in the court case, but I would tell the same story. I will talk to them. I am still in shock that this has all happened.’
It was a shadow production, an inverted version of Hollywood that leveraged entertainment industry might into an alleged spree of sexual harassment and assaults, including rape, and into a methodical way of hushing it all up with payments, threats and non-disclosure agreements.
Facilitators included colleagues and associates who set up meetings under false pretences and teams of lawyers and publicists who suppressed complaints.
It was a system of abuse involving some of the most famous people on the planet, in which success was measured not in awards or fame or box office revenue, but in silence.
“We’re all used to predators working alone, but when they band up like a pack of hyenas, that’s a whole other ballgame,” said Zoë Brock, a model and writer who accused Weinstein of making unwanted sexual advances.
“There are enablers all over the place,” said Jeff Herman, an attorney who represents sex abuse victims and is investigating options for some of Weinstein’s alleged victims. Predators’ companies often facilitated abusive encounters masquerading as work meetings, he said. “Sending limousines to pick up the victim, making flight arrangements. These guys aren’t making their own plans, making reservations.”
Other industry figures agreed, saying that transactions conducted amid sunshine, palm trees and dazzling smiles often concealed darker agendas.
The former movie mogul, Harvey Weinstein, hired hit men to suppress the stories of those who accused him of sexual assault and rape, including actress Rose McGowen.The ex-Mossad intelligence agents were also used to spy on his accusers and “dig dirt” on them as part of an elaborate plot to keep their stories of sex abuse and rape buried.

Peter McKelvie 7th July 2014 (3:03)
‘There is evidence at least 20 prominent pedophiles – including former MPs and government ministers – abused children for “decades”, a former child protection manager has told the BBC.Peter McKelvie, whose claims initially led to a 2012 police inquiry, said a “powerful elite” of pedophiles had escaped investigation for years, but there was now a chance of justice for the victims.’ https://www.telegraph.co.uk/news/uknews/crime/10953043/20-establishment-figures-in-elite-paedophile-ring.html?fbclid=IwAR2v4f1gSdpoA12Kn8ti8jSNKwyVwF3li1ckgMCZplSxk5dnTmvNiwTqwMM
Mr McKelvie triggered a police investigation in 2012 when he revealed there were seven boxes of potential evidence of a powerful paedophile network, including letters between Righton and other paedophiles, being stored by West Mercia Police. “There has been sufficient reason to investigate it over and over again certainly for the past thirty years, and there has always been a block, and the cover-up and collusion, to prevent that happening.”
“We are looking at the Lords, the Commons, the judiciary – all institutions where there will be a small percentage of paedophiles, and a slightly larger percentage of people who have known about it but have felt in terms of their own self-interest and self-preservation and for political party reasons it has been safer cover it up rather than deal with it,” he told the BBC.
Silence in Academic Institutions:
Professors & Staff Arrested for Trading in Child Rape
When a University of North Dakota professor was arrested on child pornography charges, The Dakota Student asked “We can’t help but wonder if this type of thing is common in other schools around the nation?” The answer is yes. A concerning number professors and staff have been arrested for trading in brutal child sex abuse, including of infants. From University of Virginia’s Assistant Dean, Michael Morris downloading infant anal rape toKirk Nesset, professor at Allegheny College with over 500,000 videos/images including folders called “kidsfuck,” too many professors and staff are involved in child sex trafficking.
For the past few years I have been monitoring reports of professors and staff arrested for trading in child rape and torture; aka child pornography. My research, which is far from comprehensive, details 97 professors and staff arrested on child rape and torture, aka child porn, charges. This is a small sample and does not represent the total number of professors and staff arrested on these charges. Both the volume and type of crime should raise alarm bells. Yet academic institutions remain silent. Protect the institution, not the children, appears to be the rallying cry at far too many higher education institutions. http://www.lorihandrahan.com/
In 2016, the Indianapolis Star ran a scathing exposé on USA Gymnastics’ systematic failure to protect young athletes from sexual abuse and to report allegations against coaches to authorities. It opened the floodgates and eventually led to dozens of allegations against the physician.
The initial article focused on coaches and did not name Nassar, but Rachael Denhollander of Louisville, Kentucky, reached out to the publication with her own story of abuse and filed a criminal complaint with the Michigan State University police. In it, she alleged that Nassar had sexually abused her in 2000, when she was 15.
Denhollander had sought treatment from Nassar for lower back pain at his sports treatment clinic at MSU, and she alleged that the doctor, without gloves, digitally penetrated her vagina and anus, and at another visit unhooked her bra and massaged her bare breasts with a “visible erection.”
“For years, Mr. Nassar convinced me that he was the only person who could help me recover from multiple serious injuries. To me, he was like a knight [in] shining armour,” Alexis Moore, who said Nassar molested her starting when she was 9, said in court in January. “But alas, that shine blinded me from the abuse. He betrayed my trust, took advantage of my youth and sexually abused me hundreds of times.”
Eventually, 125 women filed criminal complaints with police, and more than 140 people have filed civil suits against the doctor and the institutions that employed him for so long, most notably USA Gymnastics and Michigan State University. Some of the victims say coaches and administrators were aware of complaints against Nassar, but no actions were taken against him.
Even Olympic athletes were told to feel grateful for Nassar’s care; Raisman said an official with USA Gymnastics told her she should feel lucky for his treatment because he was such a good doctor.
Victims testified that he gave them gifts, offering trinkets from his Olympic travels. He was also outwardly supportive, and kind to many of those he abused. “He was always, always, always on my side,” Raisman told Time magazine. “He was always that person who would stick up for me and make me feel like he had my back. The more I think about it, the more I realise how twisted he was, how he manipulated me to make me think that he had my back when he didn’t.”
Nassar, after initially denying the allegations of abuse and defending vaginal penetration as part of his medical treatment, pleaded guilty in two Michigan counties to a total of 10 counts of criminal sexual assault. The cases all involve women or girls who were assaulted by Nassar during the course of a medical examination, except one girl — a family friend of Nassar’s whom he abused for six years, between the ages of 6 and 12.
In addition to the charges in Michigan, federal prosecutors charged Nassar in December 2016 with possession of child pornography, saying that the doctor had about 37,000 explicit images in his possession. Meanwhile, other gymnasts reached settlements that would keep them from speaking publicly: McKayla Maroney, who won gold with Raisman in 2012 in London, reportedly faced a $100,000 fine from USA Gymnastics if she spoke out about Nassar (she originally came forward in December 2016)as part of a $1.25 million settlement. USA Gymnastics later issued a statement that said it “has not sought and will not seek any money from McKayla Maroney for her brave statements made in describing her victimisation and abuse by Larry Nassar.”
The problems at USA Gymnastics weren’t limited to Nassar, as revealed in the Indianapolis Star’s extensive investigation. The Star discovered a pattern of coaches and others failing to report sex abuse to authorities and later uncovered more than 360 cases spanning 20 years in which gymnasts accused coaches of sexual misconduct.
Many of Nassar’s victims say Michigan State has yet to answer for enabling Nassar. Some of the lawsuits filed against the university say coaches, staff, and other university employees knew of the allegations against Nassar, and others have told ESPN Magazine and Detroit News that they warned coaches, trainers, and other university officials about his misconduct long before he was finally fired in 2016.
Reporting casts doubt on MSU’s line that it first heard of Nassar’s misconduct in 2016. ESPN Outside the Lines interviewed four women who said they told MSU coaches or trainers about Nassar as far back as the 1990s. Two of those women said that they told Kathie Klages, MSU’s longtime gymnastic coach, in 1997 about Nassar. Klages resigned in February.
Others came forward after that. Tiffany Thomas Lopez, a former MSU softball player, told ESPN she complained about Nassar to three athletic trainers in 1998:
”I felt like they thought I was a liar,” Thomas Lopez says. She eventually met with Destiny Teachnor-Hauk, an athletic training supervisor. “She brushed me off, and made it seem like I was crazy. She made me feel like I was crazy.”
A separate Detroit News investigation found that no less than 14 MSU officials or representatives were aware of allegations against Nassar in the nearly 20 years before his arrest. At least eight women and girls had made complaints, including one who contacted local police officials.
In 2014, the university launched a Title IX investigation into Nassar after a recent MSU graduate reported that she had visited his clinic for hip pain, and he had massaged her breasts and vaginal area and appeared to be sexually aroused as he did so.
The university closed the investigation after three months, in July 2014. It dismissed the woman’s claim, concluding that she hadn’t understood the “nuanced difference” between sexual assault and an appropriate medical procedure. (The woman involved is now suing the university, along with dozens of others.) The Lansing State Journal reported that MSU police also launched an investigation (as required by the Title IX complaint), and the Ingham County prosecutors also declined to bring charges.
Meanwhile, Nassar was allowed to see patients during that 2014 criminal investigation. A New York Times report later found at least 40 women and girls who were abused between July 2015, when the allegations against Nassar first came to the attention of the FBI, and September 2016, when MSU finally fired Nassar.
— an environment journalist Joan Ryan described in 1995’s Little Girls in Pretty Boxes, a book exposing the abuses top female gymnasts and figure skaters face.
Six years after the Sandusky scandal rocked Penn State, university leadership is still fighting a civil war over the case, a conflict fuelled, in part, by weaknesses that have developed in investigations that concluded top Penn State officials covered up for the convicted child molester. According to Freeh, a former federal judge, in 2001 Paterno and three university administrators — president Graham Spanier, athletic director Tim Curley and senior vice president Gary Schultz — decided to conceal a report in 1998 of Sandusky assaulting a boy to avoid bad publicity for the university and its football team. The men displayed a “callous and shocking disregard for child victims,” Freeh said, as they “empowered Sandusky” to abuse boys for another decade. Sandusky was cleared by Penn State police and a state child welfare agency. Freeh had concluded Paterno should have suspected then that his assistant was a pedophile.
An independent investigator found there had been ‘several incidents’ which indicated Jonathan Thomson-Glover he was unsuitable to work with children, but complaints were ignored by head teachers
Jonathan Thomson-Glover, 53, was jailed for three years and nine months after being found guilty of sex offences involving young boys at Clifton College in Bristol.
He taught German and was a housemaster at the co-ed day and boarding school, which houses up to 560 boys and girls aged 13-18.
Thomson-Glover was convicted of taking and possessing hundreds of indecent images of children and secretly filming pupils over a period of 16 years at the college.
At his trial at Bristol Crown Court last year he was found to have hidden cameras in school bathrooms and in a bedroom where the children were encouraged to engage in sexual activity.
An independent report commissioned by the school noted that warning signs of Thomson-Glover’s activities should have been picked up sooner, after it was found that three head teachers had failed to take effective action following complaints made to them by staff, pupils and parents.
Letters and notes of meetings were not placed on his personnel file, a note of disciplinary action was lost, and each incident was considered in isolation, she said.
In a number of cases, parents who complained were told they should find another school for their child.
Thomson-Glover pleaded guilty to 36 counts of making, taking and possessing indecent images of children between 1987 and 1992.
Earlier this year he was also convicted of sexually abusing young boys at his holiday home in Cornwall, and was given an additional six month prison sentence.
Around 80 current and former staff were interviewed for the investigation, and former head teachers Andrew Hugh Monro, Stephen Spurr and Mark Moore were called to give evidence.
The report revealed that Thomson-Glover had started filming pupils in 1998 when he put a camcorder in a shower changing room.
In summer 1999, a cleaner and a young student reported that the housemaster had been found taped to a chair at the college half-naked.
A few months later, he was found taped to a chair again in just his underwear by a teacher who told headmaster Mr Munro, it was reported.
In September 2000, then head teacher Mr Spurr launched an enquiry after reports Thomson-Glover was again tied to a chair as a prank but told him “whatever happened don’t do it again”. A cleaner also reported that one of the boys was wrapped up in cling film by Thomson-Glover in 2005.
In another incident, a deputy head of pastoral care raised concerns about Thomson-Glover’s activities to head teacher Mr Moore, but was told the matter was ‘dealt with’.
Referring to Thomson-Glover as “X”, Ms Jones wrote in her findings: “Poor record keeping meant that successive heads were unable to see that a large number of concerns about X had been raised during his career at Clifton.
“Each incident was considered in isolation, none met the threshold applied at the time for disciplinary action, and the cumulative effect of the various incidents and behaviours was never considered.
“A lack of consistent systems, procedures, oversight and accountability allowed X to establish what would now be recognised as grooming behaviour.
‘There were no regulations or school rules at the time requiring specific systems and procedures to be in place, neither was there a good public understanding of the way children might be groomed by trusted adults.’
Tim Greene, the current head teacher at Clifton College, has since apologised to pupils and parents and said changes have been made to the school’s staff training and complaints procedure, as well as the way it logs and shares child protection information.
An NSPCC spokesperson said the report was “deeply concerning” and highlighted “how Thomson-Glover was able to abuse a position of trust over many years without action being taken”.
“He was a serial sex offender, responsible for dozens of offences and with no regard for the consequences of his actions on his victims.
”It’s crucial that schools are a place of safety for children any allegations of abuse are taken seriously and fully investigated.“
The Bangor Daily News saysMaine is an East Coast source to procure children. Those who know Maine’s history are not surprised.
Only a few years ago, when students at Baxter School for the Deaf refused sexual abuse by their director, Dr. Robert Kelly, he tied them naked to a tree and left them, all night, in the Maine woods; to break them. Dr. Robert Kelly was not prosecuted. The State of Maine protected Kelly and not Maine’s children. The Attorney General (AG) refused to prosecute any of the Baxter School rapists. Instead, Maine used tax-payer funds to pay Kelly’s pension through-out his retirement in Florida until he finally died, as reported by Rick Wormwood, in 2004.
Maine treated Robert Kelly the same way Maine is handling retired Biddeford Police Officer Stephen Dodd; a cop who anally raped children now living free in Florida on Maine tax-payer funds.
Investigators would have found numerous inappropriate photos of a 13-year-old girl posted on the walls of her math teacher’s office, but administrators at her Douglas County school never called them.
At least two students and their parents warned school officials about an inappropriate relationship between the teacher and his student. But instead of calling law enforcement or child welfare services — as required under a state law to help prevent child abuse — two former administrators at Rocky Heights Middle School punished the children who reported the abuse, and failed to trigger an investigation that could have stopped the 30-year-old from preying on the girl for months before he raped her for the first time, according to a lawsuit filed by the girl’s parents.
Former Bluewater District School Board teacher Richard Buckley was found guilty by the Ontario College of Teachers of sexually and psychologically abusing a high school girl. The sexual abuser was allowed to keep his teaching licence.
A Federal Government MP accuse the Safe Schools program of being linked to a “pedophile advocate”.
Liberal Nationals MP George Christensen said Professor Gary Dowsett from La Trobe University helped establish the anti-bullying campaign.
Mr Christensen, who has called for the Safe Schools program to be scrapped, quoted a report containing “controversial views” which he said was published by Professor Dowsett in 1982.
The Member for Dawson told Parliament Professor Dowsett was a “longtime advocate of intergenerational sex, otherwise known as pedophile”.
“He says: ‘How different then is the gentle, tentative sexuality between parent and child from the love of a pedophile and his or her lover. That kind of love, warmth and nurture is an important part of the pedophiliac relationship’,” Mr Christensen told Parliament.
“He argued in that journal that pedophilia should be part of the gay movement, it must be legally recognised and depicts it as a wider sexual liberation.
“I think it would shock many parents to know that a pedophilia advocate was overseeing the organisation that came up with the Safe Schools program.
Two elementary school principals at a Texas school district were arrested within a week of each other for failing to report cases of sexual abuse to law enforcement.
Cindy Sue Underwood, 35, the principal of Kate Haynes Northwest Academy was booked into the Wichita County jail on Monday and released soon after.
Kory Fancher Dorman, 45, the principal of Crocket Elementary school was arrested last week.
Both educators were charged with failing to report separate and unrelated incidents of sexual abuse concerning students in their care.
The Wichita Fall Times Record News reported Underwood was arrested for failing to tell police a school iPad was used by three 6-year-old boys to take photos as they engaged in various sexual acts in a classroom.
According to the arrest warrant, the photos were taken on Oct. 3 and were reportedly found on Oct. 25 by the students’ homeroom teacher.
The teacher informed Underwood of the findings. She told the parents, but did not alert law enforcement.
The children were sent home, which detectives said put others at risk.
Dorman was arrested Jan. 31 for allegedly not reporting a sexual assault of a first grader at her school.
According to the arrest warrant, Dorman was notified by three grandparents in mid-December that their 7-year-old grandson was sexually assaulted by a fellow 6-year-old student while in a bathroom at Crockett elementary school. It’s unclear when the assault occurred.
Dorman told authorities that she delegated the responsibility of investigating the allegations to the school counsellor. She did not report the allegations to law enforcement and was unaware that anyone had reported the incident after they returned from the holidays about 20 days later.
Both Underwood and Dorman were put on administrative leave by Wichita Falls ISD district officials on Friday.
The Texas Family Code states that teachers are mandatory reporters.
Brett O’Connor, HEAD OF CHILD PROTECTION in Queensland schools, charged with historical sex abuse offences against pupils at two Sydney private schools
Last month, Mr O’Connor was charged by NSW detectives over indecent and sexual assaults allegedly committed against a 12-year-old boy when he was a Marist Brother at Sydney’s prestigious St Joseph’s College, Hunters Hill in 1987.
He was also charged with sexually and indecently assaulting a 12-year-old-boy at St Gregory’s College, Campbelltown in 1989. Both colleges are large independent Catholic day and boarding schools for boys, run by the Marist Brothers.
O’Connor later left the religious order and qualified as a psychologist.
On March 20, O’Connor was arrested at Tweed Heads Police Station and charged with four counts of indecent assault of a child aged 16 and under authority, and six counts of sexual intercourse with a child under 16 and under authority.
Ben Levin, 65, ONTARIO EDUCATION ‘EXPERT’
was sentenced to three years in prison in May 2015 after pleading guilty to possessing and creating child pornography, and the indictable offence of counselling others to commit rape.
The revelation is “bone-chilling,” says Jack Fonseca, senior political strategist for Campaign Life Coalition.
Levin is “actually working in a strategic way by encouraging influential academics and journals to normalise the viewing of child pornography and pedophiliac attraction to children,” he warned.
More than 700 school employees committed or were alleged to have committed sexual offences against nearly 1,300 children over the last 20 years, according to a first-of-its kind study of child sexual abuse in Canada.
The report, released Thursday by the Canadian Centre for Child Protection, identified 750 cases of sexual offences (or alleged offences) against “a minimum of 1,272 children” between 1997 and 2017.
The offences were carried out or allegedly carried out by 714 employees working in kindergarten to Grade 12 schools across Canada.
The majority of the offenders (86 per cent) were certified teachers, but other school employees charged with crimes also included educational assistants, student teachers, lunch monitors, volunteers, secretaries, custodians and school bus drivers, the report says.
Nearly 140 offenders had secondary occupations, such as sports coaches and tutors, which provided them even greater access to children, the report says.
Many of the offenders included in the study groomed their victims in order to build trust and spend time alone with them, according to the study. Those offenders manipulated their victims to reduce the likelihood of the child reporting the abuse, the report says.
Are those who stand up/speak out for the victims of child sex abuse been blocked/attacked/punished? Here are examples:
Two former detective constables, John Wedger and Rochdale whistleblower Maggie Oliver told the Sunday Express how their lives were made unbearable once they reported police corruption to their senior officers. Former Greater Manchester Police officer Ms Oliver said she was bullied by high-ranking officers after exposing Muslim grooming gangs preying on young girls.
“I’m sure there are police officers now going through what I went through and something like this is needed desperately. I’m not sure what depths senior officers will stoop to in order to keep people silent.”
Mr Wedger has now begun a civil claim against the Metropolitan Police claiming damages for psychiatric injury arising from work-related stress.
He said he was bullied by superiors after filing an intelligence report alleging that some of his colleagues knew a prostitute was pimping out girls as young as nine but turned a blind eye.
The Child Abuse Cover Up – A Police Whistleblower Speaks (1:01:42)
In a courageous and explosive audio interview with UK Column “Despatches from the Front”, a Metropolitan Police Detective Constable child protection specialist takes the lid off the scale of child abuse, trafficking and prostitution in London and UK.
A former detective, who was financially and professionally ruined by his own superiors for trying to bring a pedophile priest to justice, will receive compensation almost 50 years after he was pushed out of Victoria Police.
Denis Ryan gave up his police pension when he chose to resign from the force after being ordered to drop his investigation into Monsignor John Day, a Catholic pedophile priest who preyed on children in the Mallee.
Vigilante group Creep Catcher violates privacy of their targets, B.C. watchdog rules
Surrey Creep Catcher, a vigilante organisation that lures suspected pedophiles to meetings in order to shame them on social media, has been found to be violating the privacy of the “creeps” it exposes.
In a ruling released Tuesday, British Columbia’s Information and Privacy Commissioner ordered Creep Catcher to remove from the internet and destroy all recordings of meetings and chats with two men who arranged online to meet someone they thought was an underage girl.
After a three-year investigation, seven NYPD officers and one retired NYPD detective have been arrested in connection with an alleged prostitution and gambling ring, reports The New York Times. Ludwig Paz, a retired NYPD Vice Detective, is the alleged mastermind behind this conspiracy. Paz, along with his wife, allegedly operated or assisted with the day-to-day operations of seven out of eight brothels involved in the ring. Using his expertise as a former Vice detective, he helped set up new protocols for sex buyers to enter the brothel in order to weed out undercover police officers. Paz has been charged with enterprise corruption, third degree promoting prostitution, fifth-degree conspiracy, third-degree bribery, second degree rewarding official misconduct, first degree promoting gambling and second-degree hindering prosecution.
There are at least 75 of these pedophile hunter groups operating in Britain. They pose as underage youngsters on sites where kids gather and bait the trap. Should they get a potential pedophile taking interest they play along until the pedophile sets up a meet, then they confront him with a video camera and hand the evidence to police.
But now, national police chiefs have vowed to put an end to these groups, instructing police officers to start arresting the pedophile hunters. The reason? Well, its debatable if it’s a reason, or an excuse, but what’s reported is that “pedophile hunters don’t safeguard the privacy of the victims”. This is a wondrous example of double-think: because the only “victim” of these groups is the caught-out pedophiles.
The new guidance tells officers NOT to work with groups who are trying to catch potential child predators – and to pursue the hunters with the full force of the law!
Quite rightly the British people are deeply suspicious as to what’s REALLY going on here. After all, an estimated 1,400 young white girls were only able to be entrapped into child prostitution with the police turning a blind eye to years’ worth of reports and demonising those who spoke up as “racists”
Sergeant 1st Class Charles Martland, the Green Beret was separated involuntarily from the U.S. Army for kicking and body slamming an Afghan police commander he describes as a “brutal child rapist,” began telling his side of the story Monday.
Martland is under a gag order imposed by the Pentagon, but at the request of Rep. Duncan Hunter, R-Calif, he wrote a statement. The Pentagon denies that telling soldiers to look the other way is official practice.
Martland and former Captain Daniel Quinn were disciplined by the Army. They say they had been encouraged by higher-ups that there was nothing to do about such horrific acts.
Quinn and Martland were told by a young Afghan boy and his mother, through an Afghan interpreter, that the boy had been tied to a post at the home of Afghan Local Police commander Abdul Rahman and raped repeatedly for up to two weeks. When his mother tried to stop the attacks, Rahman’s brother beat her. Quinn says he verified the story with other ALP commanders from neighbouring villages. Then they invited Rahman to the camp.
“After the child rapist laughed it off and referenced that it was only a boy, Captain Quinn picked him up and threw him,” Martland writes. “I continued to body slam him and throw him for fifty meters until he was outside the camp,” Martland writes. “He was never knocked out, and he ran away from our camp.”
Testimony: Life was wonderful until the Council, hired a police chief (I was brand new) who was accused in a book, “The Franklin Cover-Up” written by former Nebraska state senator, John W. DeCamp of all kinds of crimes against children. During the same time, a mother asked for my help to get a copy of a police report of the complaint that she had filed numerous times on behalf of her son who had been molested by the executive director of an after school program. It took me two years to get her a copy of the report. The executive director moved on to manager one of the finest restaurants in Wilmington and continues to volunteer with children;
A well-known business woman was later convicted of 55 counts of sexual harassment and many of her victims were children. She served little or no jail time. I continued to seek justice for the twelve year old victim and turned to the local sheriff for help. The sheriff, who had served the county for fourteen years, usually running unopposed, promptly resigned his position and moved to another city.
I was left in financial ruin with a campaign of character assassination, a false arrest, and the near destruction of the careers of both of my children: both attorneys. The remainder of my story can best be viewed on my two websites: www.childlinehelpline.com and www.oneagleswingsfearnoevil.com
In early September 2014, Ms. Draper informed Barnet police of the molestation testimony of her children and provided them with the video-taped evidence. A police medical examination was ordered that confirmed that the children had been sexually abused, with injuries to the inside of rectum area noted. A hair sample analysis was also conducted to determine if the children had ingested any drugs. On September 11th Gabriel and Alisa were taken into protective custody and six days later Ms. Draper was informed that both children had retracted their allegations against their abusers (incl. their father). Barnet police then closed the case.
It appears that the police inquiry concluded that the allegations were fabricated and that the children had probably been coached by Mr. Christie (the man heard in the videos).
Some investigation has been conducted into proving or disproving, however most appear to be slanted towards merely disproving the offences occurred […]
Other named suspects who are professionals were not formally interviewed.
The two children are now in the custody of child welfare. Their mother is allowed to see them once every two weeks while their father is allowed to see them once a week.
Judges today ruled that Finland’s decision to confine X, a paediatrician, to a mental health hospital where she was injected forcibly with drugs breached human rights laws.
The case concerned her confinement in the context of criminal proceedings against her for aiding and abetting a mother to kidnap her daughter, suspected of being sexually abused by her father. The child was taken into public care in June 2000; the mother had retained the right to spend time with her daughter. Following a health check-up in mid-December 2000 at X’s practice, the mother and daughter left but the girl did not return to the family support centre where she was expected. An in-house doctor concluded that Dr. X, aiding the mother, suffered from a delusional disorder and that she met the criteria for involuntary confinement. As of March 2005 (and for 8 months), the hospital started confinement and forcibly injecting X with Zyprexa and then Risperdal Consta.
Last month the Australian government, with the support of the opposition, passed the Border Force Protection Act through both houses of Parliament. It will come into effect on July 1.
If the act defines you as an “entrusted person,” you might be facing jail for up to two years if you reveal anything about what happens in Australia’s immigration detention centres to anybody else. That’s doctors, nurses, psychologists, teachers, counsellors, security staff, maintenance workers, or anyone who has signed a government contract.
Outside of detention centres, they’re legally obligated to report child abuse. As of July 1, they can’t do the same with abuse witnessed on the inside.
Refugee advocates and human rights lawyers say the legislation is a veiled attempt to silence whistleblowers from revealing human rights violations inside Australia’s detention centres.
And the mounting evidence of such violations makes this legislation all the more disturbing.
In October last year, Australia’s Immigration Department ordered ten workers from Save The Children to leave Nauru’s detention centre after they alleged sexual abuse against women and children.
