Sweep snares 255 suspected child
predators, rescues 61 children, officials say By Andy
Gross and Daniel Arkin, NBC News July 14,2013
officials announced Monday that a recent five-week sweep snared more than 250
suspected child predators, including nine teachers and three
Director of Immigration and Customs Enforcement John Morton
said that 255 child predators were arrested and 61 child victims were rescued in
so-called "Operation iGuardian," which targeted online sexual abusers as well as
those who possess, produce or trade child pornography.
Morton said that
the international investigation, which ran from May 28 to June 30, revealed that
online sexual abuse is pervasive and growing....
Twenty-two of the
victims were 9 years old or younger -- including four under the age of 3. The
remaining 39 children were between the ages of 10 and 17, according to the ICE
Of those arrested, 20 people were charged with online
sexual enticement of a minor, with the remaining 235 people charged with child
pornography production, possession or distribution of child pornography,
traveling with the intent to have sex with a minor, or other offenses, including
rape, according to the ICE release....
The truth behind the child abuse cover-ups The report
that first exposed child abuse in North Wales care homes has finally been
published. But, says Eileen Fairweather, damning details have still been left
By Eileen Fairweather 13 Jul 2013
Seventeen years ago, a
nervous-sounding woman rang and asked me to publicise a top-secret report. She
was not the whistleblower, she explained, but a go-between. She would not give
me her name: “It’s safer if you don’t know.”
That secret report revealed
the extensive rape and savage beating of countless children in North Wales
children’s homes. It was titled “Child Abuse: An independent investigation
commissioned by Clwyd County Council, period 1974-1995”. Last week, John
Jillings’s report on the Clwyd scandal was finally published. But Flintshire
county council – successor to Clwyd – has heavily censored it. I dug out the
original and discovered, unsurprisingly, that the cover-up
as one investigation rapidly led to another, and I realised
that paedophiles had comprehensively infiltrated Britain’s children’s homes
since the 1970s.
Back in 1996, only a handful of local politicians and
officials were allowed a copy of Jillings’s report. They were told – by police,
insurers and the council – that they risked their careers, arrest and being
personally sued if a word reached the media. The uncensored Jillings report
includes these chilling threats.
Every report had a number, imprinted as
a large watermark on every page. Any journalist who quoted it would supposedly
be ordered by the courts to produce their copy or photocopy or face jail, and
the watermark would expose their source....
Jillings, in the non-redacted
report, reveals that one head of a home who allegedly cruelly beat boys even had
a post secured for him by Clwyd at an exotic holiday destination abroad. Might
some who failed to act now be investigated for neglect or conspiracy? When does
inertia become criminal?
Many children ran away, but police returned
them, weeping, to their abusers. At Bryn Estyn – famously described by Jillings
as “the Colditz of residential care” – one boy was crammed into a laundry
basket, the lid tied shut and tossed into a swimming pool. Other children saved
him from drowning....
The real martyrs are the care children who killed
themselves or died violently. Jillings lists 12. He called them R1, R2, etc,
with just a few poignant lines about their deaths by hanging or falling from
heights. My hand ached after I wrote out that report, and so did my
Stuart Hall faces

Perspectives on Dissociative Disorders Individual and Societal
Oppression Edited by Vedat Sar, Warwick Middleton, Martin Dorahy
Published January 13th 2014 by Routledge – 192
Dissociative disorders are one of the
psychiatric consequences of childhood psychological trauma. While oppression is
an aspect of traumatic conditions, dissociation undermines resistance to
oppression throughout a person’s lifespan. Neither oppression nor dissociation
are restricted to particular cultures, and both can affect the individual as
well as societies.
This collection engages with the universality of
dissociative disorders and their close relationship to oppression. The chapters
cover extreme examples such as ongoing incest in adulthood, children and adults
forced to kill others, and abusive states in interrogation. Further subjects
examined include the utilization of dissociation in postmodern societies to
maintain oppression, the oppressive conditions of asylum seekers and the
consequences of oppression as they are dealt with in psychotherapy. The final
chapter considers how a paedophile pandering network employed multi-layered
oppression to prevent the public becoming aware of the widespread and organised
abuse of children.... http://www.routledgementalhealth.com/books/details/9780415718073/ http://goo.gl/edDJG
