It is easy to forget though that those who are tasked with the investigation find it no less abhorrent, and that they will experience considerable
fatigue given the nature of the case and the evidence that will be presented them. The staff turnover on cases such as this can be huge the longer
the investigation goes on. This causes further delays, and a lack of continuity, which given the fragile nature of witnesses, can break trust and
lead to the loss of those people in court.
If the authorities are to be successful they need to throw manpower and resources at it (that they don't possess) and get it wrapped up as quickly as
possible. I hope that they are doing their best, and that complementary agencies are assisting. But only if this all represents an on-going risk to
the safety of children. Otherwise, they need to hand the victims over to counselling to receive the help they need, and they should cease wasting
police resources chasing a dead man who can no longer do any harm.
The problem is, if this is just an isolated case, where one man used his position to abuse, and others chose to turn a blind eye to, would anyone
believe it? Are the police going to be forced to spend millions chasing shadows just to satisfy the baying mobs?
The problem with these investigations is that, often, people are put in place to be puppets, not investigators. They are either complicit, willing to
cover things up, or able to be pressured through blackmail to stay silent.
A good example of this is the investigation into the Welsh abuse scandal, where victims are now coming forward to state that senior Tory party members
were involved in the abuse. The investigator of the time is claiming that he "doesn't recall" what names were mentioned, and he is "sure" that he
would have followed leads where political figures were mentioned. But he then goes on to admit that he only investigated the STAFF actually working
there, and seems to have ACTIVELY ignored the accusations of children being driven away from the homes in the middle of the night by "persons
unknown" - who many now claim were politicians.
It's incredible to me that this man, charged with investigating one of the most disgusting crimes, chose to selectively ignore certain instances, and
especially when those instances clearly indicate that the criminality and abuse went much further than they were aware of. This tells me that he
wanted to put all of the blame on staff, and bury the accusations against outsiders - his political friends.
There is so much similarity between these cases in the UK, and those in the US. BoysTown was used in the USA as a shop for politicians abusing
children, and it seems children's homes in the UK were used in exactly the same way by British politicians at exactly the same time.
Even their descriptions of the scenarios are the same. Witnesses from both say that they were taken from the homes in the night, in expensive cars
owned by politicians, taken to parties and hotel rooms and abused. This is not a coincidence. The exact same stories are coming for the same period,
accusing political figures of doing the same things in both the UK and the USA,
As if it wasn't bad enough already, imagine how many children there are in care, with no family, no one looking after their best interests, in a home
where the staff are actively engaged in child abuse and supplying elites. How can anyone be sure that hundreds were not abused and murdered? There is
no paper trail. There is no one to speak out for these kids. They were completely at the mercy of a sick system, fed into it through neglect and
simply handed over to some of the most evil and despicable people in society.
I fear that this is a lot worse than people actually understand. There are accusations in the US of "snuff movies" being filmed. Several witnesses
have said that they were coerced into abducting other children for their abusers, and that those children were never seen again.
I find it terrifying that people don't seem to be taking this as seriously as it should be taken. If I were in government and knew about this, having
read what I have read, I would have arrested and detained every single person working in those care homes at that time, and I would be interrogating
them. I would be investigating every senior politician of the era and investigating their links to those accused in the USA. I would be sending the
police in to seize the records of every child taken into these homes and have a team of citizens going through everything to locate each and every one
of them and where they went.
It's simply not enough to sit back and call for a review, or another whitewash.
