The Next 7,000 Years: Starving, Raping, and
Perverting Our Children
On Saturday, April 30, 2016 Kenya destroyed more than $172 million worth of illegal elephant tusks and rhino horn.
Twelve ivory towers burned, sending thick plumes of ash and smoke over Nairobi National Park as elephant and rhino tusks smoldered.
This was the most significant demonstration against poaching in the region and the largest burn of illegal wildlife products in history.
This is just another slap in the face to the have-nots of this world. Just half of this money could have funded a Clean, Safe, Water Project, which might have created many jobs for several years, and permanent jobs for overseers and a maintenance crew. ~ Robert StrongBow ~
About 50% of Kenya lives in poverty.
If you’re wondering what is the poverty line in Kenya, it is set at $1.46 per day in urban areas and $0.68 in rural ones.
Of those living in Kenya, 42 percent are children under 15.
HIV/AIDS has already orphaned over 1 million children.
Every country does the very same finger-pointing, just as every person does the same finger-pointing, all the while they are simply doing all they can to cover their own short-comings.
HOW IS CHILD SEXUAL SLAVERY A SIMPLE SHORT-COMING????
HOW IS CHILD SEXUAL ABUSE A SIMPLE SHORT-COMING????
HOW IS LETTING CHILDREN STARVE A SIMPLE SHORT-COMING????
Our Law Makers have done nothing to protect Our Children from the PERVERSE CHILD PREDATORS all the way back up the family tree to Adam and Eve.
Our Children here, Kenya, and the whole world over are being exposed to this HIV/AIDS epidemic, and everyone seems to be ignoring it.
But now Our Law Makers want you to let your Children be exposed to perverts like Dennis Hastert who are NOT content to limit their fantasies to their own bedrooms and adult partners.
Well HERE is the news flash, this is NOT something that has just started, it is and has been a very real evil forced on Children for 7,000 years.
WE THE PEOPLE have allowed the perverse fantasies of people to be paraded and flaunted in plain sight of innocent Children, subverting their minds on what is right and what is so wrong.
WE THE PEOPLE allowed the “Professionals” of an inexact science to further this evil agenda based on whims alone, with no solid, proven facts.
It must be noted that Licensed Medical Professionals have been totally ignored in their stating that there is no proof to base this belief.
Sunny Dakota Slade-Bort of Blanco suffered multiple bruises
SAN ANTONIO, TX – A 1-year-old girl from Blanco who police said was the alleged victim of child abuse has died, the Bexar County Medical Examiner’s Office said Thursday.
Sunny Dakota Slade-Bort died one day after being taken to University Hospital with multiple injuries. The toddler was taken off life support at the request of the baby’s father.
Blanco police Chief Michael Ritchey said Wednesday that Sunny suffered bruising to the side of her head, face and lower jaw. A cause of death has yet to be determined.
Police and EMS responded to a 911 call early Tuesday evening at an apartment complex in Blanco, Ritchey said.
He said two other children, a 2-year-old girl and a 3-year-old boy, were in a bedroom.
Those two children were also hospitalized with suspicious injuries, Ritchey said. He said the boy suffered a cerebral hemorrhage and had bruising all over his head. The girl also had bruises and other injuries.
“It’s just horrific. It’s hard to deal with when you see that 1-year-old lying on the floor,” Ritchey said.
The children’s mother, Jamie Patronella and her boyfriend, John Lawrence, have been charged with injury to a child.
Llano-Burnet-Blanco District Attorney Sonny McAffee said he won’t decide whether to upgrade the charge to capital murder until the investigation is complete. McAffee said it could take a few weeks for the investigation to wrap up.
The Texas Rangers and Child Protective Services are investigating.
CPS spokeswoman Julie Moody said the agency is filing for emergency custody of the two surviving children. Moody also said the agency had prior contact with the family, but would not elaborate.
National Wrestling Hall of Fame
Revokes Hastert’s Awards
“In the 40 years since it was founded, the National Wrestling Hall of Fame has never had to remove an individual who had received one of its highest awards…”
The National Wrestling Hall of Fame said Monday that it has revoked all honors for Dennis Hastert after the former House speaker was accused of sexually abusing teenagers decades ago.
The Oklahoma-based organization said its Board of Governors approved the revocation after its ethics committee found that Hastert’s actions were “detrimental to the ideals and objectives” of the Wrestling Hall of Fame. Executive Director Lee Roy Smith said the organization decided to wait for the outcome of Hastert’s criminal case before taking any action.
“In the 40 years since it was founded, the National Wrestling Hall of Fame has never had to remove an individual who had received one of its highest awards,” Smith said in a statement Monday.
Hastert was sentenced to 15 months in prison Wednesday after pleading guilty to breaking federal banking rules in a scheme to cover up sexual abuse. Federal prosecutors accused Hastert of sexually abusing high school athletes when he was a wrestling coach in Yorkville, Illinois.
The Hall of Fame revoked its Order of Merit and Outstanding American awards given to Hastert, along with separate awards given by the Illinois Chapter of the National Wrestling Hall of Fame and the Dan Gable Museum in Waterloo, Iowa.
Dennis Hastert Case Renews Calls To Change Child Sex Abuse Reporting Laws
For nearly 40 years, Scott Cross hid from everybody what he called his “darkest secret.” And in a federal courtroom, the 53-year-old revealed it to the world.
“Coach Hastert sexually abused me in 1979, my senior year in high school,” Cross said at former House Speaker Dennis Hastert’s Wednesday sentencing hearing on bank fraud charges.
Hastert reluctantly admitted to abusing multiple students back when he was a high school wrestling coach — a fact federal investigators inadvertently learned while probing him on banking violations he committed while paying hush money to one of his victims.
But a standard loophole in the justice system meant that Hastert would technically go unpunished for his admitted sexual abuse, while his victims would get nothing.
Like Cross — and hundreds of victims from the Catholic church’s priest sex abuse scandal — many child sex abuse survivors come forward later in life only to learn the statute of limitations has locked them out of the courtroom.
“When a prosecutor cannot indict an offender for these heinous acts because the statute of limitations has run, it raises serious moral, legal and ethical questions,” Illinois Attorney General Lisa Madigan said in a Thursday statement.
Madigan is among those who have urged lawmakers to eliminate entirely the statute of limitations for all sex crimes involving children.
It’s especially important to eliminate a statute of limitations when the victim of a crime is a child, said Barbara Blaine, president of the victims advocacy group Survivors Network Of Those Abused By Priests.
“Most sexual abuse victims have been closed out of the courtroom because it takes them so long to tell,” Blaine said.
During interviews with U.S. attorneys, Hastert’s victims cited his position and gave a common refrain: “Who would believe me?”
In court Wednesday, U.S. District Judge Thomas Durkin took pains to detail why Hastert’s 15-month prison sentence for bank fraud could not encompass the decades-old abuse he had just admitted to (and had not been charged for).
Durkin noted that Hastert was a “serial child molester” even though he could never be prosecuted as one in a court of law. Such a label was near-unfathomable 13 years earlier when Hastert voted for the law that eliminated the statute of limitations on federal child sex abuse and kidnapping crimes.
But most child sex abuse cases are not in federal purview, and states have their own patchwork of laws on time-barred prosecution.
Timelines range from South Dakota’s brief three year reporting window to Illinois’ relatively long 20-year window. Time limits also vary based on factors like the date of the alleged abuse or whether a responsible party like a teacher or social worker failed to report the abuse when it occurred.
Experts say current statute of limitations rules unduly and even unrealistically burden young victims with reporting abuse they haven’t come to terms with — or don’t even understand.
“Most adults have difficultly sorting out how to proceed after a crime happens,” said Polly Poskin, the executive director of the Illinois Coalition Against Sexual Assault. “A child might not even know that they can go to the police. They know about the police but they might not know what happened to them in cases is a crime.”
Even as victims of childhood crimes grow up, persistent cultural attitudes around victim blaming — like the notion that accusations are made out of anger or revenge — can keep a victim silent, Poksin adds.
“We as a culture have a terrible record of believing the victim of a sexual assault or sexual abuse,” Poskin said. “Victims don’t think they will be believed or that they’ll be supported and not blamed.”
Those who oppose an elimination of the statute of limitations on prosecuting child sex abuse argue it’s a violation of due process for the accused.
Other objections touch on the fact that decades-old allegations typically have “stale evidence [and] little to no physical evidence,” Poskin said.
“Usually, there are no witnesses either. Perpetrators usually isolate their victim. And the victims might not know each other and tell each other.”
Proving child sexual abuse beyond a reasonable doubt remains a difficult case to make regardless of when it’s reported, and time almost always works against a victim because memories fade, witnesses die and evidence is lost.
At least four states — California, Minnesota, Delaware and Hawaii — have opened a window of time ranging from one to three years during which anyone who was sexually abused as a child could bring forward a claim of abuse no matter how long ago it happened.
By the time California closed its one-year reporting window in 2004, at least 800 claims had been filed. In Hawaii, some of the several-dozen claims dated back to the 1950s.
Poskin said one of the most compelling reasons to remove the statute of limitations is a simple one: “The perpetrator might confess.”
In Hastert’s case, one confession begat several more, which Poskin said can increase the pressure to confess.
“If the current law doesn’t allow us to indict the Denny Hasterts of the world, then the law isn’t doing its job.”
