I'm convinced that my abuser was in something of this nature in U.S. If I'm correct about this then he was so thorough in his abusive treatment and brain washing of boys that few witness other than myself are around to say so. My abuser bore a lot of similarities to Sandusky and other abusers. They were powerful people and very smooth in convincing people around them of their "goodness". They were able to carry on a whole realm of secret activities right under the noses of those around them.
Cutting through a concerted establishment cover-up requires meticulous, diligent, fearless commitment to uncover the truth, whomever it unmasks.
My advice to you as Prime Minister – and from one father to another – is that you need to order a special police investigation, outside the affected forces, with proper resources, to review all relevant police files and those of the intelligence services
I want to make another connection between the British investigation and events in the U.S.A. I believe that there are a lot of similarities between what is reported as pedophile-ring activities in Britain and those in the U.S.A. I make this claim because of abuse which I experienced. Such an investigation here would yield results.
The formerly secret Boy Scout files released a few weeks ago have very little in the way of records for the decade of the 1950's and even the 1960's. I think that most people, reading those records will assume that the absence of records for that time interval means that there were no infractions. However, it just means that they weren't reported. The following publication makes a statement about testimony from the 1950's which bears on what I have said: http://www.pennlive.com/midstate/index.ssf/2012/11/jerry_sandusky_scandal_one_yea.html
Changes to the law likely won’t help many of the men who have recently come forward to say they were abused as far back as the 1950s, long before Sandusky....
They didn't see it because they didn't want to see it.
