Children died in care of an orphanage / reformatory in Florida

Dozier School for Boys in FL.

Backed by relatives of boys who died there, Kimmerle and her team asked the state for permission to exhume the bodies so remains can be identified and returned to their families. The administration of Gov. Rick Scott so far has refused, saying it lacks the authority to approve exhumation.

A single marble found in one of the graves:

From 1900-2011, the Dozier School in Marianna, Florida, was a state-run reform school for boys who found themselves in trouble - whether stealing cars, skipping school, or in the case of some children as young as one, needing an orphanage when none was available.

Black and white boys were segregated:

Here is a web site devoted to the Dozier Home for Boys. The site is by Roger Dean Kiser. He has written a book about this. I have not seen the book (yet).

http://www.thewhitehouseboys.com/

Here is a personal account and photo from a guy who was at the Dozier site when he was 13. His name is John Patterson Jr. These are only a few of his statements taken from a larger testimony.

I told him that one of these days he will pay for the beating and he got very upset at me. Another staff person left the building and left Mr. Tidwell and me alone.

He made it very clear to me that I would pay a very large price for my smart mouth remark. He told me that I was a very cute little boy and said “I bet you have never sucked a fucking dick, have you boy.”

At the time I had no ideal what he was talking about. He told me that he was going to stick his penis inside of my mouth and make me suck. He had me get onto my knees and pull his pants down. He took me by my head and forced is penis inside of my mouth and he told me to “mouth up and down on his penis” and that I better not bite down or I will pay a very deep price for it.

But instead of taking me right back to the cottage or to the detention right away – they took me to a place that was behind a building and downstairs. Later on I found out that was the “RAPE ROOM”.

This reminds me of another place called Haut de la Garenne, where similar horrors were discovered.

More information on Haut de la Garenne:

Haut de la Garenne is(was) an orphanage located on an island off the southern coast of England. It is on the Isle of Jersey. I'm not familiar with that region at all. The orphanage has now been shut down and there is a state of denial about what was going on. But it was apparently infamous for flagrant child abuse carried on there. The information officially reported smacks of "coverup". Children from that orphanage were sexually abused and sometimes used in satanic ritual abuse. The island is apparently populated with exceptionally wealthy people. Some of the articles cited that wealthy/famous people obtained children for their abuse from this source. See the note below on the British public figure Jimmy Saville. He is now deceased and MS has a long thread concerned with his crimes against children. There is a long string of British notables who are implicated with child abuse related to this orphanage. They are difficult or impossible to prosecute because of their money, power, and connections.

Don't underestimate the importance of this. One source makes the statement:

Similar situations are ongoing in the USA. The books: Franklin Cover-up by DeCamp and the Franklin Scandal: A Story of Powerbrokers, Child Abuse & Betrayal by Nick Bryant document these problems in the USA. A similar situation seems to apply in that many or most of the patrons of these loci of crimes against children can't be prosecuted because they are perpetrated by rich and powerful figures who have in many cases morally compromised the law enforcement officials.

This is a documentary film (about 1 hour)
