the unfortunate fact is, my family and culture has been devastated by institutionalized sexual abuse on an epic scale. the residential school scandal has deeply scarred generations.
http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=_4-TYwFS-P0 the disclosure of this has traumatized the good people of the non-native community. the damage ripples on. currently, the country i live in is undergoing enormous efforts to address that ugly chapter in our past. we must learn to forgive and live together to build a better future for our children's children. revenge and resentment are not a viable option reconciliation and restitution are the way forward.
Indian Residential School Truth and Reconciliation Commission of Canada The TRC is a component of the Indian Residential Schools Settlement Agreement. Its mandate is to inform all Canadians about what happened in Indian Residential Schools (IRS). The Commission will document the truth of survivors, families, communities and anyone personally affected by the IRS experience. This includes First Nations, Inuit and Métis former Indian Residential School students, their families, communities, the Churches, former school employees, Government and other Canadians. The Commission has a five-year mandate and is supported by a TRC Secretariat, which is a federal government department. http://www.trc.ca https://www.culturalsurvival.org/publica...econciliation-c
over 4,000 aboriginal children died in residential schools. sexual abuse rates were as high as 75 percent in some schools, and rates of physical harms were higher still. this is genocide. The Truth and Reconciliation Commission has established “The Missing Children Project” to assemble the names of children who died, how they died, and where they were buried. The list of names will be contained in a registry available to the public. “Aboriginal kids’ lives just didn’t seem as worthy as non-aboriginal kids,” Kimberly Murray, executive director of the commission, said in an interview. Murray said the exact number of deceased children will never be known, but she hopes more information will come from churches and provincial files. “I think we’re just scratching the surface.” http://news.nationalpost.com/2014/01/03/...ommission-finds
native american religion and child sexual abuse are walking hand in hand these days.
so there is a lot of spiritual healing and forgiveness going on between the first nations community and the canadian public, which has revived some of the old rituals and beliefs. things like sweat lodges, potlatches and powwows are regaining status and popularity. elders are being honoured. ancient stories are being retold. lost languages are being learned.
my wife has been directly involved in the "Truth and Reconciliation Commission" project for the past few years. she is still connected with her cree heritage. i am alienated from my stó:lo roots. zero contact.
although i have done some experimenting in experiences, my knowledge of native american religion is very general and academic.
i have been mainly interested in the pre-Columbian societies.
as mentioned above by melliferal, there are many nations in the americas, and there are many overlapping and contrary belief systems. for example, the aztec religion was notorious for human sacrifice, but the hopis were renowned for their nonviolence. some natives believed in alien gods from other stars. some believed in spirits in the wind. some believed the gods lived underground. you can find anything you want.
native americans are no different than the rest of the world. no better. no worse. we are all different from each other individually. we are all the same. no two agree.
there was good and evil here long before the europeans ever arrived. it is the human condition.
i just watched a six part television series from the UK called UTOPIA .
it is fiction but is based on facts.
very disturbing but entertaining. carefully crafted and well acted. complex characters you can care about. spectacular cinematography and brilliant screenplay. plot twists and turns to keep you involved.
it's all there hidden in plain view... trauma based mind-control, blackmailed politicians, brainwashing, media manipulation, sociopathic social engineering, a must-see for anyone interested in this topic.
i also recommend this black humour british comedy PSYCHOVILLE.
written and directed by Zack Snyder. http://www.imdb.com/name/nm0811583/ the man who brought you "300" "The Watchmen" and "Dawn of the Dead" and now the most recent version of "Superman"

i was obsessed and compelled to wade through hours of videotaped victim testimony on the above links.
this triggered all my hidden memories of my experience with clifford olson, and i recalled how he used me to bring new boys to the jobsite, with the promise of work, which i did, to my eternal shame and guilt. this was the hardest thing for me to accept and forgive about myself.
i am not excusing what i did. these were my reasons:
i did it to divert his attentions away from me, but i felt sick about it. then i felt rejected and jealous when he ignored me and began his seduction routine with them. then i felt like killing myself for putting these other boys my age at risk. but i was too chickenshit to warn them. i had to protect my reputation as a psycho tough guy. i did not want the other guys to find out i was "gay" or "fag". that was a dangerous label in Surrey in 1977. anyone suspected of homosexuality was beaten and bullied mercilessly by gangs of "fagbashers". i had seen it numerous times. guys humiliated, forced to eat dogshit, lick boots, just for being effeminate or timid.
i was afraid clifford would kill me or hurt me if i told anyone what happened, or if i failed to comply. i was worried that i was no longer useful to him. now that he had already raped me twice, he did not seem to be interested in me anymore. he was starting to talk very rude and mean to me. insulting and degrading me, calling me dirty names, but he kept me by his side most of the time, and never let me out of his control. if i was recruiting, then i still had value, i reasoned.
i still can't understand why i just didn't run away. once, after the first rape, i did not show up for work, i was just sitting there at home, in a zombie robot trance. unable to act one way or the other.
he called my house, just like any regular employer would, talked to my mother on the telephone, gave me shit for being late, and arrived at my house within the hour to pick me up. when he asked "why didn't you come in today" i wanted to yell, "because you raped me" but it was like it never happened and i was unable to speak the words, so i said "i'm sorry, i slept in". even when we were alone, i could not admit that he had raped me.
he shook my mother's hand and promised her that he was looking after me. he would make sure i didn't mess up this job, and that he would "straighten me out". "don't worry".
she was so charmed, and told me what a nice wonderful man he was. i was lucky to have such an opportunity, such a lenient boss, and i should be more responsible. it was so normal, i almost laughed out loud.
instead i apologized and he took me straight to a big house in a nice neighbourhood. he took me downstairs to a sauna, and he raped me a second time. the man who lived there stayed upstairs. he seemed not to notice when cliff and i were walking around with nothing but towels on. clifford insisted i wear a towel, he said my nudity was improper, that i should "cover up". although by this time, i did not understand his need for modesty, considering what he had just done to me.
after this, the subtle threats and insults started. i could feel his loathing toward me, like it was my fault. he called me a "slut" for wanting to have sex with him. then he said i liked it too much. i remember this made me feel bad, like i had failed or disappointed him.
for the next few days, after meeting him, my mother gushed about what a sharp dresser he was. it made me sick that she (a single woman) was obviously attracted to the man who raped her son. i did not tell her what he really was. i did not want to upset her, or get in trouble.
i did not trust her anyway, because she had already let me down. when i was 12 i told her that the tenant in our basement suite had been molesting me. she did nothing, and let him continue to live there, after he denied touching me. but that is another story.
this is all very disturbing to convey, but it is brutal truth.
any ruthless person can brainwash a kid. it doesn't take a genius, just a degenerate. it is a cold science.
as i mentioned... NOT ONE WORD of his involvement with government youth employment agencies, church people, or construction company.
he was one of the bosses, hiring and firing, and was in charge of several job sites, or so it seemed. he was literally running a stable of young kids (mostly boys), from which he could pick and choose.
and there were those other adults, one of which was some kind of VIP from some local church, one of them owned or managed the construction company which had employed or contracted clifford.
none of these other men ever touched me, but... they were there, they appeared to be tight with him, several of us boys and one adult witnessed a non-sexual assault and robbery of a boy (clifford had picked him up hitch-hiking), which occurred right on the jobsite. the assault included choking and a death threat from clifford. clifford took his money and marijuana. kept the cash and gave us the weed. i can't remember how that incident was instigated, but he was frightening and ferocious for a few minutes, and went right back to his jovial charismatic personality, seconds later, like it never happened. we just went back to work, the kid ran away and we never saw him again.
i vividly remember cliff literally picked him up by the throat with one hand and threw him like a doll. the kid landed in the dirt a few feet away, and cliff was instantly leaning over him, choking him until his face was red. the attack was very sudden, and seemed unprovoked. it happened after cliff took his bag of marijuana and refused to give it back. he took the money from the kid while he was choking him.
at that time, olson bragged more than once, to me and others, that he had killed people.
none of this really seemed suspicious to me until i got to be a mature adult parent myself. those other adults should have reported these activities. from what i understood, they were part of some sort of prisoner/work/parole deal.
cliff was there to help troubled youth with his stories of rehabilition and repentance, and boy did he love to tell his stories about how he found jesus and turned his badass life of crime and jail around. how he had shot people, including cops. all the boys either feared or respected him.
many new memories have surfaced since then. when the sh!t hit the fan at the end of this incident (1977), there was chaos, violence and disclosure, the police were involved at that time, and everyone on the jobsite know what he had done, and yet... ? he disappeared until he was arrested many years later for a series of child murders(1981).
at that time i reinvolved myself into the case, reporting what had happened to me and others, naming names to the police detectives investigating the murders. they initially tried to discourage me from continuing, with remarks like: "are you sure you want to do this?" "are you sure that's what happened?" "we're not sure it relates to our case" "what are you hoping to get out of this?" "what is it that you want us to do about it?" "why did you consent to rape the second time?" "what do you mean he had some sort of power over you? that doesn't make any sense" "there's really no need for you to come forward, we got him already" "why didn't you come forward earlier?" "we already have enough evidence to convict" "a couple of hundred rape victims have already come forward, there are more than we need." "there's not really much we can do" etc. i am paraphrasing of course. this may be standard operation procedure for a multiple murder investigation, or they may have thought i was lying to get attention. at this point, i was a fairly fucked up 20 year old.
i just felt like they were not interested, like i was trying to report a petty theft (NOT MULTIPLE RAPES AND ASSAULTS), as if they wanted to avoid the paperwork headache. when i insisted they take my testimony in writing, just to get it on record, they controlled what went onto the police report, coaching me, leaving tons of details out. it was strange. i was never contacted by anyone else again after that. i did not get my day in court, and the accuser never faced the abuser.
none of it adds up now that i have the luxury of hindsight, but it far too late to fix it.
the whole thing stinks of cover-up, but i can't tell if his accomplices and associates were "in the know", if they were "in denial", or simply "out to lunch". innocent people may be covering their tracks just to avoid being connected to scandal. maybe clifford was just a master manipulator and had these adults under his spell as well.
hard to tell where the incompetence ends and the evil begins.
although the details are never clear... it feels like something organized is behind this... i was given drugs and drinks (spiked?) with other adults present, then isolated, threatened with death, but not tortured or tied up... but like i said... fuzzy memories keep surfacing... but the memories are detached like i am watching it happen to others... and i am never sure if they are real or imagined or maybe i saw them in a movie.
by the time clifford olson got his hands on me i was already the perfect victim... groomed by other abusers, looking for love, low self esteem, street kid, etc. so i was not hard to "handle"
i remember feeling like i belonged there. this happened over only a few weeks until i was "rescued" by another victim, but i can barely remember anything but a few moments of intense isolated incidents. those "moments" however are as clear and real as this moment. i can travel back in time anytime i want.
one wonders what would have happened to me if i had not been saved by circumstance.
it is almost certain that the perpetrators/predators in most of these cases are traumatized/programmed victims of long-term sexual abuse themselves, who never managed to escape.
many are trapped since childhood in a sick self-perpetuating culture of violence, fear, and intimidation.
and having participated, often unwillingly, in crimes against other children, including rape, recruiting, kidnapping, etc... these atrocities are filmed in many cases. this can be held against the sex slaves for blackmail purposes, which forces continued "voluntary" participation until their souls are scarred and scared, and many feel beyond redemption, unworthy of forgiveness, fear reprisal for betraying their abusers, or fear public exposure, prosecution and punishment for what they have done.
you can imagine how deep they are buried spiritually.
this is "stockhold syndrome" and "vampirism" all rolled into one.
this is a very complex generational problem that goes way back in history.
maybe some were born sadistic sociopaths, but i believe most were manufactured and trained. some, unfortunately, are born into these pedocults.
thank god i did not became one of these sociopaths. no matter how hard i tried to erase all trace of "weakness" (empathy-conscience-emotion) from my personality, using my "vulcan logic"... i could not rid myself of my humanity.
after decades of detachment, i am still trying to combine my head's comprehension with my heart's compassion to overcome my compulsions. it's complicated.

"Chances are you've never heard of the Bohemian Club. They secretly meet for seventeen days each July at a place called the Bohemian Grove, a remote forest of ancient redwood trees in the deep Northern California woods. Some 1,500 in number, their membership rolls include current and former U.S. Presidents, heavy-hitting corporate chieftains, and high government officials. Mingling among them are a number of Hollywood movie stars, Broadway producers, famous musicians, authors, painters and poets. These are America's most powerful men.
Mike Hanson is a first-hand eyewitness who has been inside the Bohemian Grove, and successfully emerged with the first video evidence ever brought out of the power elite's exclusive compound.
Stories have come out of the Grove about young children being exploited in unspeakable ways, up to and including cold-blooded ritual murder. There are stories involving actual human sacrifice on the “altar” of the owl God statue. Understandably, it’s all very hard to believe."
"Dear ( Your Member of Parliament), We the public demand that the file on Operation ORE be opened and made public.
We believe that the list of names drawn up by this police investigation will expose some of the paedophiles and abusers of children currently working within the Palace of Westminster.
These sick and criminal people must be removed from the corridors of power and brought to justice in the shortest possible time. This decisive and long overdue action would then bring about a collapse of many of the paedophile rings operating around the country where people in positions of trust and authority are abusing children in appalling ways.
Will you, as our elected representative, now publicly call for the file on Operation ORE to be made public? Failure to answer this simple question in the affirmative may well expose you to the charge of being a protector of paedophiles.
The scandal first came to public attention in January 1980 after a news report in the Irish Independent. On 3 April 1980 three members of staff at the home, William McGrath, Raymond Semple and Joseph Mains, were charged with a number of offences relating to the systematic sexual abuse of children in their care over a number of years.
The Kincora Scandal, by ex-BBC journalist Chris Moore, alleged prominent unionist McGrath had sickening sex attacks on kids covered up. The book said two police probes were obstructed by “the establishment” in Britain.

Michael Aquino holds a Ph.D. in political science and is a U.S. Army Reserve officer with a background in psychological warfare. Said to be a Satanic Chaplain in the U.S.Army, according to military historian Douglas Dietrich. http://www.douglasdietrich.com/bio.html http://www.churchofsatan.com/Pages/ChaplainsHandbook.html http://alleeshadowtradition.com/pdf/army_chaplain_handbook.pdf US Army Pamplet 165-13-1 Ethical, responsible Michael Aquino was accused by the U.S. Army CID on August 11, 1989 of "Conspiracy, Kidnapping, Sodomy, Indecent Acts or Liberties With a Child, False Swearing, Intentional Noncompliance With Article 30 Uniform Code of Military Justice, Maltreatment of a Subordinate and Conduct Unbecoming an Officer," in connection with the Presidio charges. The reason for this investigation and the CID decision are the facts that point to plaintiff's sexual abuse. The victim, a 4 year old girl, "in a completely public setting, identifies … a man who sodomized her" and forced her to "place her mouth on his penis." She claimed to know the accused as "Mikey" and identified the wife as "Shamby". After Aquino sued the Army to have his name stricken from the the report, the court investigated and a decision was handed down by the Commanding General of the Army CID on September 28, 1990: "Plaintiff remains titled for Conspiracy, Kidnapping, Sodomy, Indecent Acts and False Swearing." Aquino’s pleas of innocence notwithstanding, there is little doubt that molestation occurred at the Presidio. The serious harms inflicted upon the children at Presidio were documented by Diane Ehrensaft Ph.D. http://onlinelibrary.wiley.com/doi/10.1037/h0079332/abstract http://www.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/pubmed?cmd=Retrieve&list_uids=1580341&dopt=Citation On Aug. 14, 1987, the San Francisco Police staged a raid on the Russian Hills home of Lt. Col. Michael Aquino, an active duty U.S. Army Reserve officer, and his wife Lilith. The raid was in response to allegations that Aquino's home had been the scene of a brutal child rape of a four-year-old girl. The principal suspect in the child molestation, a Baptist Minister named Gary Hambright, was indicted in September 1987 on charges that he committed "lewd and lascivious acts" with six boys and four girls ranging in age from three to seven years old. Police believe Hambright was responsible for 58 separate incidents of child rape. At the time of the alleged incidents, Hambright was employed at a child-care center servicing the U.S. Army base at Presidio. According to an article in the Oct. 30, 1987 issue of the San Francisco Examiner, one of the victims had identified Lt.Col. Aquino and his wife as participants in the child rape. According to the victim, the Aquinos had filmed scenes of the child being fondled by Hambright, in a bathtub at the Aquinos' Russian Hills home. The child's detailed description of the house in which the incident had occurred led police to the Aquino residence, which doubled as a Temple, where they confiscated 38 videotapes, photo negatives and other evidence that the home had been the hub of a pedophile ring operating in and around the army base. For reasons that still remain cloudy, Aquino and his wife were never indicted.

The Temple of Set was consecrated in Santa Barbara, California during the summer solstice night of 21 – 22 June 1975, by Michael A. Aquino, in a "greater black magic" ritual that resulted in what believers regard as an inspired text titled The Book of Coming Forth by Night.
Without any attempt to even ask me about such topics, you have included as “facts” – even without the journalistic dodge-word “alleged” – numerous lies concerning me. I am surprised and disappointed at this. I thought we had sufficient mutual trust and respect to preclude such conduct.
The passages in question are quoted and annotated below. I would appreciate your removing them from your paper, on that website and elsewhere, immediately. A published apology to me would also be appreciated, and would speak to your professional ethics. - ———————————————————————– “Michael Aquino split from Antoine La Vey in 1975 and in the same year, founded his own satanic organization known as the Temple of Set, according to a document of the California ‘Office of Criminal Justice Planning: Research Update, State of California, Volume 1 (6), Winter, 1989-1990′ entitled ‘Occult Crime: A Law Enforcement Primer’.” - ———————————————————————– The name is spelled “Anton LaVey”. The Temple of Set does not believe in “Satan” [or any other element of Judaeo-Christian mythology], as has been made exhaustively clear in numerous interviews and public statements.
Your citing an “Occult Crime” document as a reference concerning the Temple of Set and myself, without any clarification that neither the Temple nor I have committed any crimes, is misleading and defamatory. You could fairly have quoted the Temple of Set’s 1975 incorporation papers from the California Secretary of State’s office if you wished a California government reference to the Temple’s founding. -———————————————————————– “Noreen Gosch found out that Michael La Vey was involved in the crimes perpetrated against her son, Johnny when Noreen Gosch met with Paul Bonacci in the Nebraska prison in 1991.” - ———————————————————————– [I assume that you meant to write "Michael Aquino" rather than "Michael LaVey"; there is no "MLV".] This presents Noreen Gosch’s lie as unquestioned truth, when it is pure fiction. - ———————————————————————– “Bonacci told Noreen Gosch that 14 days after Johnny was kidnapped, known Satanist Colonel Michael Aquino came to the house outside of Sioux City Iowa, where Johnny had been kept since the kidnapping. Michael Aquino, then a Colonel in the Army, paid several thousand dollars to the kidnappers, took Johnny and left for Colorado with him.” - ———————————————————————– A complete lie by Bonacci [if in fact Gosch did not fabricate this herself]. I never made any such trip or visit, never paid any money at any time in my life to kidnappers for any reason whatever, and have never had any contact whatever with any Gosch, nor with Bonacci. - ———————————————————————– “In March of 1998, when Johnny Gosch came to his mother’s home in the middle of the night, he told his mother about his abduction and named Colonel Michael Aquino as a central perpetrator. Aquino was then an officer in the military reputedly in charge of ‘Operation Mind War’ for the U.S. government. ‘Operation Mind War’ was a sub-project of ‘Project MK-Ultra’ which grew out of ‘Operation Paperclip’. ‘Operation Paperclip’ was a covert operation in which large numbers of Nazi scientists were brought to the United States from the Nazi death camps of World War II to learn from their techniques of torture, drugs, hypnosis, mind control, and genetic experimentation for covert operations.” - ———————————————————————– A complete lie by whichever Gosch invented it. There is not/never has been any “Operation Mind War” in the U.S. government. Back in the 1970s I co-authored a paper entitled “MindWar” as an entirely open, nonclassified discussion on the U.S. Army’s psychological operations capabilities. During the “SRA” hysteria of the 1980s, assorted cranks tried to make a public issue out of this paper just because of its catchy title. There was no “issue” to make.
That paper had no connection to MK-Ultra, nor Paperclip, nor any crazy Nazi experiments. - ———————————————————————– “Aquino has claimed to be the son of a Nazi S.S. officer.” - ———————————————————————– I have never claimed this anywhere, anytime. My father, Michael Aquino Sr., was born an American citizen and is of Italian ancestry. For your information he served as a sergeant in Patton’s 3rd Army in World War II, and received the Purple Heart for wounds in combat against the German Army.
"Michael Aquino's property includes 828 Mission St., San Rafael, leased by PROJECT CARE FOR CHILDREN AND MARIN COUNTY CHILD ABUSE COUNCIL."
Officials of Project Care for children expressed shock that the building's owner was linked to the Presidio molestation case. They emphasized that Aquino has nothing to do with the operation of the center, a private non-profit organization that assists parents in finding daycare.
"This is the most ironic a bizarre twist of fate" said Daria Seivers, past president of Project Care.

The police in Ireland are re-examining the Dalkey "house of horrors".
There are claims that a paedophile ring led by a policeman was involved in the rape and abuse of children.
Ask how she managed to survive all this and Owen says it's a combination of meeting her husband Simon, years of therapy and her belief in God. "Not the Catholic God I was brought up with – that is not a very forgiving faith. I believe in a God that is full of love and compassion and who doesn't believe in negativity."

Since at least 1919, the Boy Scouts of America has maintained “ineligible volunteer” files intended to keep sexual abusers, among others, out of its ranks. The records have been closely held by the Scouts, which contends that confidentiality is essential to protect victims, witnesses and anyone falsely accused.
Tracking decades of allegations in the Boy Scouts What follows is a series of groundbreaking stories on the files, along with the most comprehensive database of the cases ever published, including 1,900 files and 3,100 case summaries spanning 1947 through 2005. ! http://spreadsheets.latimes.com/boyscouts-cases/ ! http://documents.latimes.com/boy-scouts-paper-trail-of-abuse-documents/ This database contains information on about 5,000 men and a handful of women who were expelled from the Boy Scouts of America between 1947 and January 2005 on suspicion of sexual abuse. The dots on the map indicate the location of troops connected in some way to the accused. The timeline below shows the volume of cases opened by year; however, an unknown number of files were purged by the Scouts prior to the early 1990s. The data are derived from confidential Scouting files submitted as evidence in court cases.
Boy Scouts: Records emerging on decades-old cases point to former lax handling of molestation incidents by the Boy Scouts of America and Canadian Scouts. Top executives did not report suspected Scout abuse cases, files show.
The following material is explicit and disturbing, but serves to expose a corrupt system of institutional child abuse – in this case by the State of California – through a system which is meant to protect vulnerable children, not push them further into a nightmare of abuse by criminals. Society must shine a flood light on our court system, foster care and violations by adult individuals who are using our institutions to hide their crimes against humanity.

The following summaries are a few selected samples of real California Family Law cases (catogorized by county), in which children are taken away from safe parents, and forced to live with abusive parents. Is this becasue the abuser is offered money to film his sexual abuse against the child so the judicial system gets a kick back? All involved would be local police, judges, children services, attorneys and even medical examiners.
You decide after reading the following, is $8 billion a year worth this type of corruption.
When these children were four, seven and nine years old, they were taken from their mother who was accused of non-evidentiary Parent Alienation Syndrome, and placed in the full custody of their father. This occurred in 1996, after the two girls disclosed molest by their father, despite corroborative medical evidence, explicit disclosures of abuse to law enforcement, and receipt of California Victims of Crime funding for therapy due to the crime committed against them. They had a cluster of symptoms indicative of sexual abuse, including nightmares, encopresis, excessive fears, sexualized behavior, depression, dissociation, anger, physical pains, headaches, constipation, and stomach aches. The mother, found by the court to be a good, loving mother and not accused of any crime, has been on supervised visitation since the reversal of custody three years ago. The mother, bankrupt after spending $250,000, must represent herself in court against the father’s attorney. The children’s attorney functions as a de facto attorney for the accused perpetrator.
Contra Costa County
After disclosing molest by her father, this 11-year-old victim and her two siblings were forced to continue overnight, unsupervised visits with the identified perpetrator. The father admitted molesting his daughter and was convicted. Nevertheless, overnight visits were court ordered to continue. In 1997 the five-year-old daughter disclosed molest by the father. Unsupervised visits continued because the court determined the father was not able to pay a supervisor.
El Dorado County
In 1998 this 4-year-old boy was taken from his mother and given to his physically abusive father. He is barred from any contact from his mother.
This little girl, born in 1994, was taken away from her mother when she was a toddler, and placed with her father, despite her on-going disclosures of sexual abuse by the father. She had a cluster of symptoms indicative of sexual abuse including anger, phobias, eating problems, insomnia, constipation, headaches, nausea, regression, terror when her diapers were changed, night terrors, and attention problems. These problems increased when she was placed with the father, but the numerous reports to CPS have been to no avail. The child cries until she vomits when she leaves her mother on week-end visits and is forced to return to the father.
Los Angeles/Orange County (Torrance)
Born in 1988, this little girl was placed in the custody of her mother when she was five years old, seeing her violent father only in the presence of a court monitor. When she was seven, she was forced to see her father without a supervisor, and reported to professionals that he was sexually and physically abusing her. The abuse was corroborated by medical evidence. She had a cluster of symptoms indicative of sexual abuse including nightmares, night terrors, enuresis, encopresis, excessive fears of her mother dying, depression, suicide attempt, eating disorder, extreme dissociation, intense anger, flashbacks, physical pains, headaches, insomnia, nausea, diarrhea, constipation, stomach aches, and a learning disability. Rather than protecting her, Judge F. granted primary custody to her father. In Utah, where her mother had moved, physical and sexual abuse was substantiated and she received complete court protection. However, California regained jurisdiction and placed her with the father. The child, now 11, is only able to see her non-offending mother for 8 hours per month under supervised conditions.
These two children, a boy born in 1982 and a girl born in 1984, were in the full custody of their mother who was a victim of domestic violence. In 1989 and 1990, both children disclosed sexual abuse by the father. They had a cluster of symptoms indicative of sexual abuse, including lack of intact hymen, vaginal infections, nightmares and night terrors, enuresis and encopresis, phobias, sexualized behavior, depression, eating disorders, intense anger, headaches, and stomach aches. The mother was charged by the State of Georgia for not protecting the children from the father. The children received California Victims of Crime funding for therapy due to the crimes committed against them. However, in 1990 the California court took the children away from their mother and put them with the father’s family. The mother was placed on supervised visitation. In 1992 the father gained custody and hid the children from their mother. $36,000 back child support owed to the mother was erased, and the court doubled her payments of child support. In 1997 the mother was assaulted and injured in the courthouse by the father, who continued to terrorize her. The mother, a court monitor herself, was chosen “1995 Humanitarian of the Year” by her university.
Los Angeles County Superior Court
Born in 1987, this child began masturbating at school and reported sexual abuse by her father when she was seven years old. The Department of Children and Family Court Services (DCFS) concluded she had been sexually abused. She was placed in the custody of her mother, and saw her father on court-ordered supervised visits. The child repeatedly asked to be placed with her mother and consistently reported sexual molest by her father, even in court. Nevertheless, in she was taken away from her non-abusive mother and placed in the custody of her father on the recommendation of an evaluator.

The child was forced to visit her father without supervision, and was subsequently re-abused. Her mother was court-ordered not to take her to the doctor. The mother fled with her daughter to Europe in 1992, because she could not obtain protection for the child through California family law court. They were found 1½ years later, and the child was placed in the full custody of her father. Her mother went to prison for depriving the father visitation, is prohibited from contacting her daughter, and is ordered to pay the father $65,000 in restitution.

Instead, the court repeatedly placed him in the custody of his identified perpetrator. He called 911 for help from his father’s house, and his therapist called the police to help him, and was put into expensive private foster care, rather than with his non-offending mother. He was able to stay with his mother while she was dying. Four months after her death, he was forcibly removed from his non-offending grandmother’s care by armed police. He was placed in expensive foster care again for over six months, and is now forced by Juvenile Court to live with his identified perpetrator permanently. The child’s attorneys did not represent his wishes, and functioned as de facto attorneys for the accused perpetrator.

The father had brutally abused the mother during the marriage. When the boys asked their mother to motion the court to remove their court-appointed attorney who was threatening them, the judge gave guardianship of the boys to that attorney. The children protested being removed from their mother, pleaded with the judge and evaluator, refused to get on the airplane to be sent to another state, and were forced to go to live with the father. The younger child ran away from his father’s home and cannot be found.

The recommendation from the mediator was to have supervised visits, but the evaluator denied the molest, did not gather evidence, misquoted parties, and recommended 50/50 custody. The child again disclosed molest. When the judge still refused to provide supervised visits, CPS in another county took the child into protective custody and supervised visits were ordered. However, Sacramento County took jurisdiction and the evaluator said the mother had Parent Alienation.

A raft of documents was released last year showing former Prime Minister Maggie Thatcher’s dealings with Savile.
But Whitehall mandarins ordered key paragraphs to be blanked out to save people’s blushes.
We challenged that ruling under Freedom Of Information laws and were initially turned down.
It was only after a further appeal, when we said it was in the public interest to expose what Thatcher and her officials were discussing, that the information was finally released last week.
It shows Savile claimed Prince Charles had agreed to be a patron of one of his charities – and, crucially, last year someone in power had decided we shouldn’t know that fact, despite it being common knowledge that the Prince and weirdo Savile were pals.
Officials at the National Archive, which houses the documents, last night blamed the Cabinet Office, under the control of Cabinet Secretary Sir Jeremy Heywood, for redacting the documents.
The cover-up concerned Savile asking Prince Charles to be patron of his Stoke Mandeville appeal.
The letter to Thatcher from one of her aides reads: “Even more encouraging, though again confidential at this stage, Jimmy Savile tells me that the Prince of Wales has agreed to be Patron of the Appeal.”
The nugget was contained in a one page letter headed PRIME MINISTER dated March 6, 1980, and initialled G.V.
The letter was part of a Savile file released under the 30-year rule by the National Archives at Kew, south-west London, last year.
It included pervert Savile declaring his love for the former PM, showing how well connected he was to establishment figures.
A National Archives official explained the Charles paragraph was excluded under sections 40 and 41.
Section 40 refers to information that it would breach the Data Protection Act to reveal that that person would have a “legitimate expectation” that the information would remain private.
Section 41 covers information that was given in confidence.
Two documents in the dossier are still being covered up and will stay secret for 40 years after a ruling last October when claims about Savile began to emerge.
One, misspelling Savile’s name, is described as “Letter from Jimmy Saville to Prime Minister (undated).”
The other is “Telephone message from Jimmy Savile” dated February 5, 1980.
Last night it was still unclear whose blushes were being spared by those sections remaining blanked out.
Freedom of information campaigners have criticised officials for misusing the rules to keep information secret.
Maurice Frankel, director of the Campaign For Freedom Of Information, said: “They often use these sections to protect the identity of people who are actually players in the decision-making process who ought to be identified.
"Sometimes people haven’t behaved properly and shouldn’t have any expectation of having their identity protected. If you persist, you can succeed in overturning these decisions.”
Former Top Of The Pops presenter Savile was a fundraiser for Stoke Mandeville hospital in Buckinghamshire, where he also preyed on young patients.
One paralysed woman said Savile abused her when she was 13 and recovering in the children’s ward in 1971.
Nurses even warned youngsters “pretend to be asleep” when he visited.
The hospital launched its own inquiry after a catalogue of attacks was revealed across the country, dating back to 1955.
Savile was also allowed in and out of Charles’ residence St James’ Palace when he acted as a marriage guidance counsellor for Charles and Diana.
Charles, who led tributes when Savile died, aged 84, in October 2011, had sent him cigars and gold cufflinks on his 80th birthday.
A note with the gifts read: “Nobody will ever know what you have done for this country, Jimmy. This is to go some way in thanking you for that.”

The Abel and Harlow Child Molestation Prevention Study analyzed 4007 adults, ages 18-95, who admitted they had sexually abused one or several children. Special attention was given to finding information that could be used to reduce the number of children assaulted in this manner. The authors, defined words using the medical criteria of the American Psychiatric Association's Diagnostic and Statistical Manual of Mental Disorders, 4th edition.
To focus our scientific research on the major causes of child sexual abuse, especially in areas where early intervention can save the greatest number of children.
To provide scientific information that supports the prevention actions of the field, especially prevention organizations, professionals, and families.
is anyone here familiar with this organization or their material?
i found this review: The Stop Child Molestation Book
Talking about the sexual molestation of children is never easy, but our collective silence punctuated only by media exposés contributes to its perpetuation. If there is to be healing, the victimizing climate of secrecy and retribution must give way to one of open prevention. In their 2001 book, authors, Gene Abel, M.D., and Nora Harlow, offer a straightforward approach to this transition.
Drawing on the lessons they have learned through their many years of clinical experience, Abel and Harlow lead readers step-by-step through their proactive vision. They see a world where early interventions prevent molestation. The book’s easy and frank style appeals to a broad spectrum of readers. Its medical concepts appear in simple yet accurate language. Vignettes supplement clinical information, bringing the science to everyday life.
Reading this book offers several benefits. It can strengthen our work with individuals, families and communities through its social and psychological insights into the interplay of the disease, Pedophilia, and acts of child molestation. It demystifies pedophilia’s origins and teaches an honest language through which we can expand our conversations. Finally, it offers a humanely comprehensive response to an epidemic that plagues our society.
while i certainly applaud their noble vision, i wonder if their book is worth purchasing or promoting. has anyone here read this?
