Why would anyone, especially a newspaper, attack the Clergy continually? More to the point, why would The New York Daily News attack the Clergy in Australia, yet ignore high numbers of Child Maltreatment within the state of New York?
It is a matter of public record that only around 650 cases of Child Sexual Abuse have been proven against Clergy.
It is a matter of public record that close to 20,000 cases of Child Sexual Abuse have been proven against employees of the public schools system.
It must be noted that of all cases reported, excluding Clergy, only about 2% are unsubstantiated.
In all cases reported involving Clergy, 65% are unsubstantiated.
We should commend the good, honest, hard-working newspapers in our Country, that take Child Maltreatment seriously. At this moment, I am looking at Pennsylvania, Connecticut, Texas, South Carolina, Louisiana, Michigan, and Colorado.
On December 10th, 2013 Special Agent Tim Ballard turned in his Homeland Security badge and resigned from his employment with the United States government.
He had spent over a decade rescuing children from child sex tourism both domestically and overseas. Though his job was difficult, he was proud that his country was one of very few in the world who was actually doing anything about this problem.
However, mired in red tape and bureaucracy, Tim left to begin saving the children that he saw falling out of the purview of the US government.
These children constitute over 90% of the children lost to child sex slavery and he could do nothing to help them while in the employment of the US government.
This is a story about the lost children and the OURrescue.com jump team’s exploits as they investigate and liberate enslaved children from around the world.
Official Movie Trailer
When we first set out to make this film we wanted to help the cause but all we could do is make films. Knowing very little about the actual world of child sex trafficking, we were nervous about how the experience would impact each of us and our families.
Chet and I have relayed very littleto our families. In some small way I now understand why veterans from wars don’t go home and brag about what they’ve done or tour around giving speeches about their experiences on thebattlefield.
How selfish that perspective now seems after having seen the faces of these young children. Itwas an honor to follow these brave men and women and be a part of their team that is involved in such important work.
We pray that our film lives up to the importance and weight of the cause.

Man Gets 6 To 10 Years For Chaining Boy To Porch, Putting Dead Chicken Around His Neck
MONROE, N.C. (AP) — A North Carolina man has been sentenced to six to 10 years in prison after admitting he handcuffed an 11-year-old boy by his ankle to a porch with a dead chicken around his neck as punishment.
Dorian Harper was sentenced Wednesday after pleading guilty to child abuse, assault with a deadly weapon and maiming without malice.
Harper told the judge in Monroe southeast of Charlotte that he is sorry for his actions.
Prosecutors said they agreed to accept a guilty plea to spare the children in the home from having to testify at a trial.
Prosecutors said the children had endured enough, living in a filthy house with animals, being hungry and beaten.

A North Carolina man pleaded guilty Wednesday to handcuffing an 11-year-old boy by his ankle to a porch with a dead chicken around his neck as punishment.
Dorian Harper entered the plea to three felonies, including child abuse, assault with a deadly weapon and maiming without malice. His plea came a day after a jury was seated in the case.
“Yes, sir,” Harper, 58, said when the trial judge asked if he was guilty.
Opening statements had been set for Wednesday. It wasn’t clear when Harper would be sentenced.
Harper rejected prosecutors’ plea deal Monday, saying he wanted the trial to go on. He and his girlfriend, 58-year-old Wanda Larson, were arrested after a sheriff’s deputy found the boy in November 2013.
“This is a very serious case, with very serious implications for Mr. Harper,” Judge Brad Long told the jury Tuesday.
Larson was the boy’s guardian and a Department of Social Services supervisor in Union County. Larson faces similar charges. She has pleaded not guilty.
Authorities said they think Harper tied the dead chicken around the boy’s neck as punishment for killing one of the chickens on the 5-acre farm where they lived.
The indictment against the couple said the boy had been subject to abuse that also included being chained to a piece of railroad track in his room. Harper cut the boy’s face with a knife and used an electric wire to burn his face, according to the indictment. It also said the boy once broke his wrist trying to escape.
Four other children – ages 7 to 14, all adopted by Larson – were removed from the home after Harper and Larson were arrested.
