Just one of the 1006 Cases - Imagine this. So may tears.
Just one story of all these cases. It's not just a number. There is a face, a life behind every event. Shame on this
Edited The title should say "many" not "may".
We can only hope this ARC is not a paper tiger and that positive results will come from this investigation into child sexual abuse in Australia including the Jehovahs Witness religion among other institutions.
1006 cases have been identified at the ARC acknowledged by the JW religion as correct but ,how many more cases have not been reported to the society and have been dealt with by the parents of the abused , by-passing the Congregations internal judiciary system .
I think 1006 cases will be significantly higher if you incorporate cases that have been reported to the police /relevant authorities by concerned parents during that same period of time.
True Smiddy, plus there are the very sad cases where the poor kid told nobody, and then bottled up all the agony inside. Maybe for decades.
I do hope some of these are able to come forward, and then receive the help they need.
