Santa Ana, Calif. News Report: Jehovah's Witness molested 4-5 girls
Kacey Montoya for Channel 5
Thanks for posting this thread Barbara- and even yet the WT Society STILL supports thousands of child molesters within their congregations insisting elders not contact police until WT legal departments are informed of child abuse incidents. I'm quite sure most of the local JW's in this man's area learned of his child abuse crimes from watching the news on channel 5 - not from local elders. And THAT is one of the big problems- JW parents are constantly sitting in a kingdom hall with their children right along side a child molester- without even knowing it. That is dangerous shit. And another irresponsible evidence that the WT Society is indeed a criminal organization- protecting criminals
This news video report is from 8 September 2015
The news report states that, when one of the young victims told a family member what happened, they informed the police.
Thank for posting the date of the news report, darkspilver. I appreciate your scrutiny to make sure the information that I post is accurate, relevant and current. Nothing worse than old news! After the link was sent to me I looked around to find if the information was recent, but couldn't find anything. Please, if you have the time, darkspilver, maybe you could locate an update about this case. I'd sure like to know the outcome.
Thanks flipper for your post. Your words are a reminder of two of the Watchtower's worst child abuse policies - 1) when a molestation takes place, elders are to call the WT Legal Dept. first and not the police. (Perhaps in this case, the young victim's family member was not a JW and that's why the authorities were called, not the elders), and 2) the confidentiality policy which definitely can have dangerous consequences for other kids in the KH.

Rather than being an exampe of confirmation bias, I think this more an example of post-truth - it's not fake news, sadly the news report is true, but some 14 months old. But the way it was presented here, effectively makes it 'post-truth'.

I find that extremely hard to believe. Where did you look?
I simply copy and pasted the thread title YOU used, into Google and up popped, oh yes, the VERY FIRST result to the page I linked to above, you might get slightly different results, but I'm sure you get the point
That actually means I located the original news item / video footage in LESS TIME than it took you to post it!!
And then there's these (you actually commented on the first thread, twice)
Have you told the person who sent you link about the original date yet?

No, it's your thread, so I'll let you follow it up and update us please.
But I'll help you, a bit....
I notice the the California Department of Corrections and Rehabilitation website at http://inmatelocator.cdcr.ca.gov shows an inmate, with the same first, middle and last name who was admitted on 24 November 2015, but is listed as being 46, which doesn't match up with the news reports??
(in case anyone is wondering, we've briefly PM'ed each other previously, and I've said "I call a spade-a-spade" - and therefore to please not take what I say personally)
AndersonsInfo. Thank you for posting . This was new information for us! We appreciate all you have done and do to expose this organizations dark side!
darkspilver. This is not the first time you have jumped on a topic by Barb and tried to discredit it and her. You obviously have some agenda and it's pretty transparent and equally unwanted here.
You're just being an ass and it's really tiresome and Barb, of all people, especially doesn't deserve it.
Here's a hint: fuck off.
Ya, what Simon said to darkspilver...especially the part where he says...."f**k off for trying to discredit Barbara!
Darkspilver is worse than an outspoken defender of JW organization: His putdowns are more subtle and he likes to create an air of greater-than-you knowledge and reasoning. I've noticed that his comments appear intended to dilute the impact of any coverage on this forum regarding JW organization's own culpability in connection with child-abuse allegations and/or convictions.
DS, you are an ass. Time and again, you act like a complete douche. No one appreciates your passive-agressive bull-shit.
