“Italian police have arrested 18 people, including a mayor, social workers and psychologists for allegedly “brainwashing” children into believing their parents had abused them, in a scheme to take them away from their families and sell them to foster parents.
To brainwash the children and deceive authorities, the network is also accused of using small electroshocks that they called the “little memory machine” while with children.
Their other methods allegedly included forging childlike drawings to add fake sexual details, falsely describing their parents’ homes as derelict, and enacting plays in which social workers playing the children’s parents disguised as monsters trying to harm them.”
Absolutely nothing shocks me anymore.
I would not suggest this is the norm…but it likely happens a lot more than most people realize…and through various methods.
“Sexually abused children” can be quite profitable, for the unscrupulous.
…They’ll even create false ones, in pursuit of that money…
…possibly even create authentic new ones.

“Online paedophile hunters are often abusers who are trying to reinvent themselves as “good people”, the UK’s former police child protection head has said.
Jim Gamble QPM, who ran the Child Exploitation and Online Protection Command (CEOP) until 2010, said online vigilantism offered such people a chance to “mask” their past and garner a “status” on social media.
The 59-year-old criticised the effectiveness of some such groups saying he wouldn’t trust them to “walk my dog”.
He said: “They (paedophile hunter groups) attract people with domestic abuse records and coercive control. They give people the opportunity to reinvent themselves as a good person and create this status, to build a Facebook or a Twitter following.
“It makes them feel good about who they are and allows them to mask some of their other behaviours.”
Nothing that we don’t already know…Yet, it’s good to see this issue kept alive, in mainstream media.

“A new survey has revealed that 9 out of 10 children agree that tech firms have a legal responsibility to keep them safe online1.
More than half of the 2,004 11-16 year old children surveyed had accounts on Facebook, Instagram, Whatsapp, YouTube and Snapchat.
Children thought social media platforms should protect them from sexual, self-harm, suicide and violent content online.
These figures come on the day that we handed in our Wild West Web petition to 10 Downing Street.
The petition has almost 46,000 signatures – showing the overwhelming public support for the Government to bring in an independent regulator to force tech firms to keep children safe on their platforms.
We’re now calling on the next Prime Minister to ensure they act quickly to introduce legislation. We believe that criminal sanctions and corporate prosecution are vital for this to be effective.”
You ever find yourself asking questions like…
…How leading were the questions in this survey?
…How well was the importance of open dialogue explained to these children, prior to [or during] this survey?
Few people like the way a large section of the online community behaves so abusively…
…but this comes off like just another cheap censorship campaign, and online power grab.
The tools to deal with this already exist, on major platforms [and some platforms already exist, which are enitrely dedicated to children, and are heavily moderated]…
…Anyone can block and mute, to their hearts content…
Shouldn’t the NSPCC be educating children on the perfectly adequate measures, which are already their at the child’s disposal?
Kids eventually have to learn how to navigate this sort of thing, after all…
…The government being an obsessive nanny, and regulating everything they see, hear and read, is doing them no favors…and is far more dangerous in the bigger picture.
This is stunting human beings…It’s removing their ability to adapt and grow, in a healthy way.
This looks to be nothing more than a measure imposing draconian measures, on the rest of the internet.
Does this organization have integrity?…
03) Hello. FGM is illegal and a form of child abuse. The evidence on MGM isn’t strong enough to suggest that male circumcision should be considered a form of child abuse, when considering the physical, religious and social implications.
This is an organization which takes a strong stance against female circumcision…while at the same time, it cannot figure out that male circumcision is any form of child abuse [let alone, violent, injurious and life threatening], at the very least.
Is this organization even valid?
I know they do some good work in this world…but…Jesus Christ…
…This level of total disconnect from reality, is outright horrifying.
