The Silence Breakers #MeToo Update

So this is the newest age of enlightenment. We have finally come to the conclusion that using a position of power to coerce, assault, harass or rape another human being should get you fired. We have finally begun to take these cases seriously. With seemingly everyone but the president of this nation being called out for any reasonable allegations of sexual misconduct under the protection of power, fame or financial status, women are facing a unique opportunity: Speak up with all of your truth and righteous anger, and be believed...

Virginia Petrucci was drugged and raped on November 2014. Although she reported it to the police, the case did not end up going to court. In response to the #MeToo campaigns on social media, she shared her story for the first time publicly this year.
Sadly, her story is one of many. More than half of sexual assaults are not reported to police, based on discrepancies between surveys and police reports. More troublesome is the fact that child sexual abuse is reported at the lowest numbers, hovering barely above 10% of all cases, most likely due to the emotionally-laden implications and the sickening tendency to hide, defend or attempt to “treat” adult sex offenders.
And for those skeptical of these numbers and reports, it should be noted that a study of 812 reports from the years 2000-2003 by M. Hennan and S. Murray from the Department of Human Services, produced results finding false reporting to be at a mere 2.1% rate.
Petrucci knows all too well the process of reporting — and the feeling of futility that many sexual assault victims face not just during, but after their traumatic experiences.
Following the outing of several sexual predators, from Weinstein to Lauer, Petrucci took to social media to finally share her story.
Her #MeToo contribution on Facebook shared the horrific encounter she had on November 8, 2014, with Dr. Randal Haworth. If the name sounds familiar, he has been on the reality TV show, The Swan, in the early 2000s, as well as appearing on multiple interviews with public figures.
Currently, our nation is witnessing Hollywood A-listers drop like flies while some politicians hang on to their titles, and indeed continue to press onward and upward in their ranks, even with evidence wildly stacked against them via the number of accusers, multiple witnesses, and detailed accounts, etc. Why exactly are we so quick as a nation to believe the powerful over the powerless?
Petrucci thinks it may come down to who’s affected by the topic at hand. In other words, convenience. “I think that people are wary of unsubstantiated facts, except of course when the facts, however loosely assembled, point to something globally or nationally harmful,” she states, citing the issue of terrorism as an example of the latter. “Interpersonal crimes of a sexual nature make Americans uncomfortable,” she explains, “because sexuality in any light makes Americans uncomfortable. Positive, healthy sex is considered taboo, so the unimaginable act of nonconsensual sex is even more despised. At best, society finds rape inconvenient. At worst, rape is deemed deserved.” After all, when reports go unheeded and cases quickly grow cold, what message other than that of mere nonchalance are we sending to rape victims?
In Petrucci’s case, two lawyers are currently a source of support as she navigates the residual effects of that night in 2014, but the incident itself is oddly more difficult to discuss with close friends or family, she admitted. “Those closest to me who do know about what happened really have no idea how to talk about it or how to be supportive. I try not to harbor resentment against those who feel awkward or unsure about the right thing to say, but the most isolating aspect of this experience has been seeing how quickly people fall away from you. Trauma really resonates with others as a diseased state.”
Virginia Petrucci’s willingness to speak out, to repeat and relive Dr. Randal Haworth’s violent and calculated assault, is an act of courage.
In any revolution, an upheaval is necessary. At this moment in time, we are seeing a torrent of pain and trauma rise to the surface, and many will call victims’ accounts into question. This is partly because we have established unspoken rules stating that women ought to be silent in these matters — silent and stoic. But emotion is not the opposite of reason; rather, it can and should be the response to injustices that confound our sense of reason. Without a passionate plea for change, we cannot expect any.
As we call out the predators and rapists, one by one, we also call upon the public to support victims and those in positions of power to become part of a long term solution. It is time for respectful consent to be the norm, and for those with power to see that power has its limits. Therein lies the essence of morality.
Sexual assault: Taking down a rapist MEGAN WALLIN DECEMBER 12, 2017

Some have argued that there would be no #MeToo moment if Donald Trump had not been elected, even after being accused of various forms of misconduct, from groping to rape. But in recent weeks several of Trump’s accusers have said that while they’re happy sexual harassment is being discussed more openly, they’re still dismayed that their own stories seem to have had little impact.

A defamation suit filed by Summer Zervos, one of the accusers, has opened up the possibility that the women will get their day in court. Some have continued speaking out, hoping that away from the chaos of the election, people might be more willing to listen to their accounts. In December 2017 several women publicly aired their claims again, and called for a congressional investigation. “Let’s try round two,” said Samantha Holvey. “The environment’s different, let’s try again.”

Rep. Dan Johnson held a press conference at his Heart of Fire Church in south Louisville to deny an accusation that he molested a 17-year-old girl, which was one of several revelations in a story on the Republican state representative from Bullitt County by the Kentucky Center for Investigative Reporting.
Following the report, the Republican Party of Kentucky and the Kentucky Democratic Party both called on Johnson to resign, as did the caucuses of both parties in the state House. However, Johnson denied that and other allegations in the article, saying that he will not resign and he will continue his plan to run for re-election next year.

Teen Mom husband in 'child rape' scandal Police confirm. - by 

Roman Polanski is sharing information with LAPD detectives who've opened a new investigation into an allegation he sexually assaulted a 10-year-old girl back in 1975.
LAPD just announced the investigation into claims made by Marianne Barnard. She recently filed a police report about the alleged assault during a photo shoot. Barnard claims Polanski was directing the shoot, which initially involved her mother, but claims she was eventually left alone with him -- and that's when he allegedly attacked her.

In a six-month investigation, CBS News looked into the way sexual assault cases are handled by the United States Air Force Academy. 

In the second part of our investigation, Teresa Beasley, the academy's former top official on sexual assault prevention and response, reveals troubling information about the way she says cases were handled – and the academy is now responding to our reporting.

We women veterans and military women also felt emboldened to share our stories as #MeToo entered the national conversation, but as the movement gains momentum we question why our voices are not included in this movement. Women in the military have been speaking out about sexual harassment and assault for decades, from Tailhook in the early 1990s to Marines United earlier this year. And for decades the American public has ignored our voices, allowing the military brass to pay lip service to eradicating the problem of sexual assault in the ranks, and failing to hold them accountable when, as scandal after scandal shows, sexual predators in the military continue to harass and assault with impunity.

Child rapist gets 3 life sentences 2017-12-11

Confessed killer Ryan Antonio Oneal Bullen has been sentenced to life in prison for the death in 2007 of 14-year-old Kalifa Downes.

Bullen pleaded guilty to manslaughter in February this year, ten years after the Lower Burney, St Michael teen had gone missing on April 18, 2007.
His plea came a little over three years after he was arrested and charged after admitting to police that he had raped the teen before fatally stabbing her.

The killer, who was diagnosed with “psychological and behavioural deficits,” has an extensive criminal record, including rape, theft, robbery, assault and criminal damage.

On 21 June 2016, 22-year old Sandiswa was found in a bush near Nyanga. She had been raped and repeatedly stabbed to death. The suspect: her ex-boyfriend, a notorious gangster previously convicted of murder.

With no formal investigation taking place and no feedback being given to Sandiswa’s family, Nhlanhla’s relentless determination saw the case being passed from one incompetent investigating officer to the next, bouncing between Nyanga and Gugulethu police stations.

Unfortunately, her story is like many others’ who live in unsafe and under-resourced communities, with little or no police action to solve violent crimes.

The Western Cape has been identified as one of the most unsafe provinces in South Africa. A third of the country’s murders have been reported at Western Cape police stations. During the 2016/17 year, murder increased by 2.7%, sexual assault increased by 6% and robbery with aggravating circumstances increased by 1.3%.

Nyanga specifically, is known as the murder capital of South Africa, with 281 murders being recorded in the year ending March 2017. Additionally, 356 cases of sexual offences and 1498 cases of robbery with aggravating circumstances were reported and recorded at Nyanga police station in the previous year alone.

Suma (name changed), 26, says the excruciating pain is bad but worse is the mental trauma of being raped by six men three weeks ago and fending for herself for over 36 hours before being rescued.

"Three men attacked me and hurled me at the wall like a ball. They hit my legs with stones even as they shot videos with their phones. I was crying in pain," says Suma, currently being treated at Bowring Hospital.

"Six men raped me repeatedly through the night. When they left me, I could not walk. With hardly any clothes on my body, I crawled to the main road the next morning and sat near the bus stop the whole day. No one approached me and I was too scared to speak to anyone," Suma told TOI .

LOS ANGELES - December 12, 2017 - Citizens Commission on Human Rights (CCHR), a mental health industry watchdog, says that amidst the growing reports of sexual abuse and intimidation coming out of the entertainment industry, the systemic sexual abuse of patients within the mental health industry must be brought to the public's attention. According to CCHR, since allegations of sexual abuse by a prominent Hollywood film producer broke, more than 15 psychiatrists and psychologists that committed sexual violations of patients were convicted and jailed or had their licenses to practice suspended or revoked or had civil charges brought against them for sexual violations. CCHR urges all victims of sexual assault committed by mental health professionals to speak out.

 is a common and far reaching problem in the Netherlands, according to an investigation by a committee 

Twelve percent of athletes experienced sexual transgressive behavior in their sports club as a child, Four percent faced sexual assault or rape, NOS reports.
The committee received 103 reports of sexual abuse in sports, and interviewed 30 victims. A number of experts also helped with the research. In three quarters of the cases, the victim was under the age of 16 when he or she was abused. In over 40 percent of the cases, a fellow athlete was named the perpetrator. 
Klaas de Vries and his committee investigated the nature and scope of sexual abuse in sports . The committee concludes that it is imperative that sports clubs quickly do much more to prevent incidents of sexual abuse.

Hundreds of thousands of female pupils have suffered sexual harassment at school and the government is under mounting pressure to take action
Almost four in 10 female pupils have suffered sexual harassment at school, in some cases amounting to sexual assault, in an education system where sexism is “endemic” and misogynistic language routinely used, new research warns.
The study, commissioned by the NEU teaching union and UK Feminista, a gender equality campaign group, was done by the Institute for Employment Research at the University of Warwick.
It reveals how 37 per cent of female secondary school pupils have suffered some form of sexual harassment at school. There are 1.4 million girls aged 11 to 15 in state-funded secondary schools in England.
The research, based on surveys with 1,508 secondary school pupils and 1,634 teachers at secondary and primary schools in England and Wales, shows that girls are six times more likely than boys to have been sexually harassed at school. Six per cent of boys report having experienced sexual harassment.

Primary school porn epidemic 9 agosto 2017

A Star investigation found that the province secretly settled 220 lawsuits launched by individual former training school residents over allegations of sexual, physical and psychological abuse at the schools.

A proposed class action lawsuit has been launched against the Ontario government alleging horrific sexual, physical and psychological abuse perpetrated on former students of the province’s “training schools” between 1931 and 1984.

“The repercussions (of training school) were unreal in my life,” said representative plaintiff Kirk Keeping, who was sent at age 15 to a training school in Bowmanville, where he says he was forced into sexual acts with male and female staff members and suffered frequent beatings.
The two years he spent in training school had a profound effect on his life, said Keeping, 64. “I just spiralled down for many years in my life. It was a roller-coaster ride trying to hold down jobs, trying to have a family and live normal. It was a hard thing.”
Training schools contained a toxic environment in which degrading and humiliating treatment of children in the Crown’s care was the norm, physical, sexual, and psychological abuse was rampant, and residents of training schools were systematically denied their dignity and basic human rights,” reads the claim, filed in court Friday, which lists 14 training institutions operated by the province. “Through the Crown’s systemic negligence and breach of fiduciary duty, this improper conduct continued for decades.”

Hundreds of sex offenders are being released from jail despite posing a risk to the public due to “shocking” failings by a major prison, a damning report has revealed.
An inspection of HMP Dartmoor, which holds high-risk offenders, found that it was failing to protect the public because of “unplanned, rushed and poor” release planning, with many sex offenders subsequently leaving without having sufficiently addressed their behaviour.

Paedophiles are using cryptocurrencies to enable child trafficking and 'made to order' online child sex abuse, a Unicef report has found.
The new findings by the United Nations organisation for children found that around 71pc of young people are online compared to 48pc of the entire population.
One in every three people using the internet is a child.
However, Unicef said that "too little is done to protect them from the perils of the digital world and to increase their access to safe online content" in its flagship end-of-year report.
The organisation pointed to the increasing sale and supply of child pornography images as particularly worrying.
They indicated that criminals are now capable of purchasing explicit images such as these without being traced.
"Digital networks like the Dark Web and cryptocurrencies such as bitcoin are enabling the worst forms of exploitation and abuse, including trafficking and 'made to order' online child sexual abuse," the report said.

A New Zealand police investigation led to the arrest of a couple in the Philippines after they were caught in the act of live-streaming the sexual abuse of their children.
Following the discovery of "disturbing content" on a Kiwi man's computer in September police here tipped off their counterparts in Iligan City who then organised a raid of the couple's home and caught them during a live-stream involving their children aged 4, 5 and 7.
The couple are now facing charges of human trafficking, child pornography, child abuse and cybercrime.
The raid and rescue of the children was down to the work of the specialist police team Oceanz - Online Child Exploitation Across New Zealand.
Oceanz works to save children as part of a Virtual Global Taskforce (VGT) focused on child exploitation.
Live-streaming of the sexual abuse of children was increasing at an alarming rate.

As so many previously unreported cases of sexual abuse have been brought to light, no one can plead ignorance any longer. 
Sexual predatory behavior against both children and adults knows no boundaries. 
It is not just Hollywood or the church, Republicans or Democrats, rich or poor. Sexual misconduct permeates every fiber of society.
Disclosure is an important and vital step, but it's not enough. 
There must be fundamental legal change for this to stop. 
As we consider how to address a spectrum of predatory sexual behavior, raising restrictive statutes of limitations, especially for child sexual abuse crimes, is a good place to start.
Statutes of limitations for these crimes favor predators and hinder justice. Trauma, shame, humiliation, and threats often box in victims while perpetrators bank on these barriers to get away with no consequences. 
Despite a growing movement to eliminate overly restrictive statutes of limitations, our child sexual abuse laws remain among the worst in the country — tied with those in Roy Moore's Alabama. It is past time for New York to pass the Child Victims Act.
Statute of limitations reform is the most efficient way to level the playing field between the victims and their aggressors, as well as the institutions and organizations that enabled this abuse. Too often, victims of sexual abuse are dogged by short civil and criminal restraints that make it more likely aggressors will remain anonymous and avoid accountability.
In New York, victims of most child sexual abuse crimes only have until their 23rd birthday to bring about civil and criminal claims, even though it often takes victims decades to grapple with traumatizing abuse. 
Once statutes of limitations expire, it is legally hazardous for victims to come forward, as perpetrators can sue for defamation. 
As a result, there is an untold number of child sexual predators hidden in every community across the state, who have never faced justice and continue to pose a threat to children every day. 
The Child Victims Act substantially raises statutes of limitations for both criminal and civil claims and creates a one year "window," for all victims to finally get their day in court.

For far too long, the political climate has given lawmakers and elected officials a pass for looking the other way when it comes to these sexual predators. That time is over.
The hour of empowered survivors is here, and we must make clear to lawmakers, from Suffolk County to Buffalo, that their complicit silence will not be tolerated. Leaders in the New York State Senate, who continue to block this common-sense legislation and refuse to even hold a vote, will have to explain why they continue to protect hidden predators over children and families in their own communities.
Gov. Andrew Cuomo, who introduced a version of the Child Victims Act late last session, made clear that this bill is a priority for him. We urge him to include the bill in his executive budget and intend to make sure the Senate leadership does not try and block those efforts.

Our culture has enabled pathways to secrecy that benefit predators. It's time to bring these predators into the sunlight. Otherwise, the courage of victims who come forward will be for naught and predators will remain free to destroy more lives.

Legal change needed to stop sexual predatory behavior Marci A. Hamilton, Commentary December 12, 2017

Corey Feldman, star of many of America’s most iconic movies and heroic survivor of childhood neglect and sexual abuse, announced jointly with CHILD USA that he will serve as National Ambassador for CHILD USA, one of the nation’s leading non-profits dedicated to preventing child sexual abuse and neglect

Feldman will work with CHILD USA to raise awareness nationwide regarding current state statutes of limitations for child sexual abuse crimes that protect predators and prevent justice, and will support the organization’s efforts in New York to pass the Child Victims Act.

As part of the effort, Feldman has donated to CHILD USA to support its work to end the statutes of limitations for child sex abuse nationwide

Feldman will also be donating to CHILD USA from his GoFundMe campaign to give back to those who are still suffering

A founding member of New Yorkers Against Hidden Predators, CHILD USA is currently working on a campaign to pass the Child Victims Act in New York State, seeking to include the measure in the New York State budget and pressure the State Senate to support its passage. New York has among the worst laws for victims of sexual abuse in the nation.

“I am beyond honored to lend my voice to an organization that is so closely aligned with my cause,” said Corey Feldman. “Marci has been a strong voice and leading advocate for change even longer than I have and I have spent most of my life working towards this change. I know that by joining forces, we can and will accomplish endless victories in the name of innocence lost. It is my pleasure to donate both financially as well as my time and efforts in order to do whatever it takes to stop the abuse and preserve innocence!”

Corey was failed by the justice system, but he is helping change the world through the courage to tell his story,” said Marci Hamilton, founder and CEO of CHILD USA. 

Corey has inspired and comforted countless survivors of sexual abuse, and now will be using his megaphone to change child sexual abuse laws state-by-state. CHILD USA could not be prouder to name Corey as our national ambassador, and we look forward to working together to hold sexual predators accountable for their crimes.”

As a victim of multiple instances of abuse, Corey Feldman has been speaking out on this topic for years. From his book “Coreyography,” to his brave and candid interviews with national media outlets, Corey has served as both a face and a voice of this cause. He has worked with various organizations over the years and launched his Truth Campaign in an effort to finally get justice and show the world firsthand the horrors that he and so many others have endured.

In New York State, most victims are barred from filing criminal and civil claims once they turn 23 years old, even though research shows it takes most victims decades to report childhood abuse. CHILD USA’s advocate coalition, New Yorkers Against Hidden Predators, is turning up the heat on the New York’s governor and vulnerable state senators to support passing the Child Victims Act in 2018.

Feldman will be campaigning with CHILD USA in New York State in the coming months.
