I had a rather synchronistic thing happen to me today. It was kind of out of the blue. In the course of a conversation, an ex-LE officer started talking about a class he once had to take in connection with his law enforcement education.
He said that the amount of child abductions is mind boggling. I asked why in the world would someone take a child and mentioned that I had heard some horror stories. He then went into some detail about what they learned in the classes. He said devil worship is a real thing (of course, I knew that) and it is more prevalent than you think.
He said that children are tortured and ritualistically killed. In their classes, they learned about Santeria, black magick, and cult rituals. I asked him about Satanism, and was told that if someone tells you they are a Satanist, they probably are not.
He said real Satanic worshipers are very serious about it and they come from all walks of life. They are as dedicated to Satan as a Christian is to God. Many are doctors, lawyers, business people, and lots are connected to Hollywood. They believe they receive their power from Satan.
He told me how they discovered certain things and about some of the grisly rituals these people perform to receive "power".
Of course, I knew this stuff (sans the details...ugh), but what I took away from the conversation is that law enforcement is very well aware of the horror and evil that exists in this world, especially that done against children.
It made me just want to cry.
In childhood he visited the Imperial Court of Russia at St Petersburg and became intimate with the doomed Russian Imperial Family, harbouring romantic feelings towards his maternal first cousin Grand Duchess Maria Nikolaevna, whose photograph he kept at his bedside for the rest of his life.
Now the States themselves have little influence beyond just the amendment process.
