--- Cardinal Sin - George Pell - Guilty of Child Sexual Assault ---

in news •  last month

Thanks for covering this, Cope, I had only heard the headlines and I didn't want to give it any energy by seeking the information...

But, it's not an easy topic and I take a particular interest in the abuses of the Church (on behalf of a very close friend) so I commend you for highlighting this controversial subject and for calling out the hypocrisy of the 'system' that's so blatantly obvious to us 'ordinary folk'.

However, you've also brought attention to another subject that is often overlooked (and misunderstood) by the masses and that is the appalling way our 'justice' system handles abuse cases and the ridiculous sentencing (or not) that we see in court all too often. Just like they said, it's not what you know, it's who you know... ! Or in some cases, which barrister turns up to represent you..!

thanks for the comment , yeah its not an easy task to undertake even for analytical leaning minds searching for understanding of the construct and how it operates.

I have obviously steered well clear of the graphic details in this article (however, some of them are in the links), but to comprehend the depth of the offense and sentencing it is something which needed to be examined.

The reality of the situation we face is that the crime itself is irrelevant, what is of importance is the power and money that people have available to make these things go away... or not be revealed at all. This should be of great concern to us all.

This is merely the tip of the iceberg when we delve deeper into the situation and observe the history of this issue within mankind's social structures.

Honestly, the last couple of months i have brushed with the darker side of what humanity has to offer in the world. While i have some residual data from this investigation that i would like to present regarding the history of pedophilia through out human existence (which we call 'Pederasty') to date, i think i will have to gravitate back to observing the universe after this for the sake of my own mental health... observing humanity is incredibly depressing.
