Oh no. Not again. :cry:

Please take a few minutes to read and sign this petition.

Such a familiar story. Long-term sexual abuse in a school overseas. Mishandled by school authorities. An independent investigation finally initiated. Foot-dragging and blame shifting on the part of self-protective school leaders.

As long as I have a voice, I will continue to raise it, calling attention to the need to believe and support innocent victims.

This is what my faith tells me that my Shepherd would do.

O.k. Raz, let's look really hard at this. What do all these schools we are talking about have in common??????? The one common factor is American men!!!!!!
ABWE, NTM and now this lot, they are all American (or American influenced/trained) men who are doing this and it is American men in organisations that are protecting their fellow men. Is it time to start asking hard questions about American male culture??????

When was the last time we read a headline like Japanese school in U.S. found to have covered up a Japanese sex offender???????

And before any precious male gets his tits in a tangle and calls me racist, don't bother, as a Downunder MK I know exactly what racism feels like, Numonohi was run by racists and guess where they came from!!!!!!

Now look at this website, how many women contribute??????? How many men contribute, when you take out the obvious one who isn't an American???????
Now read Boz's latest blog and see the horrific percentages of kids in the U.S. that are abused!!!!!!!!!

American men need to take a hard long look at what it is in their male culture that is causing this and we sisters need to keep making a noise until you do!!!!!! Come on boys what is the problem, is it arrogance? Is it feelings of superiority? Is it poor role models? Is it religion? Is it sexism? Is it poor parenting? Is it alcohol, drugs???????

So there I've said it and probably pissed more than a few people off, but I'm tired of reading this type of story over and over again and tip toeing around without having a go at the glaringly obvious!!!!!!!!

Boz writes on his website "Be aware that approximately 38% of all girls and 16% of boys will be sexually abused by their 18th birthday", so I asked the question how these figures compare with the rest of the world and this was a reply "According to one New Zealand report I found 17 – 25% of women in a large population area, when interviewed said they had been sexually abused as a child. The definition of sexual abuse ranged from indecent exposure to rape. The figures for males were about a quarter of the female figures, which would be 4 – 6%". That is a staggering difference!!!!!!!!

And I want to know why American men have such a high rate of offending???????? Anyone brave enough to ask this question too???????? Anyone brave enough to try and provide an answer??????

An article about the ASIJ abuse investigation, from the Japan Times News.

http://www.japantimes.co.jp/news/2015/0 ... #.VT_ps9JV

If I am understanding correctly, this case illustrates another option for handling the discovery of abuse from long ago (in this case, from 1963-2000). This particular teacher who sexually abused students committed suicide in 2004.

The school, American School in Japan, commissioned a law firm, Ropes & Gray, to conduct a “completely independent” investigation of the abuse allegations.

Unsatisfied with how that purported "independent" investigation has been going, a group of ASIJ survivors hired their own team of lawyers from the firm of O’Donnell Clark & Crew, to conduct a separate investigation.

It will be interesting to follow this situation, and see if this paradigm, two different investigations, carried out by two law firms, yields better results than what we here at Fanda Eagles have been getting, or seeing.

RAZ, you really got my attention when you said, "this case illustrates another option for handling the discovery of abuse from long ago ... This particular teacher ... committed suicide ..." :shock: Then I realized you going a different direction ;)

I hope what got burped out of the training schools of NTM and ended up in PNG, was not reflective of the average male, no matter what their country of origin. I very much doubt it is, because most men want to protect children, not abuse them.
Bearing in mind that one victim does not equate to one offender, because most offenders have more than one victim, this makes predator numbers lower (i.e. the offender in this thread was well into double figures, so was Les Emory and others) than a quick glance of the statistics reveal.

There are very few reports of tribal missionaries in PNG engaging in sex offences against children, but at Numonohi it was rife. And yes arrogance was a feature of these offenders. They were big fish in small ponds and they loved it. It was one big ego trip and it was well funded by folk back home who thought they were heros.

In my journey of discovery of the last three years of so, what I've discovered is a lack of compassion for others in many of the older generation of Tribers (the men of my childhood). Will NTM be a better place when their influence comes to an end?
Not my question to answer, as I'm to far removed. I'm just trying to be a better man than the hypocritical role models I had.

No need to, God has sent us Stan to speak!!!!!!! I was not expecting an answer, but I should have had more faith in God's amazing ways.
So Stan has spoken and now we see what a lot of males that we have associated with think, except those brave enough to say what anyone who has any common sense and speak out against the rubbish. that dear Stan wrote!!!!!!

God bless our few brave men who stand for what is right, shame on those who read and won't make a stand against such rubbish and to all the scum who agree with Stan.

YOU ARE DISGUSTING COWARDS, THAT NO WOMAN OF ANY AGE AND NO CHILD SHOULD BE ALLOWED IN YOUR PRESENCE!!!!!!!! YOU ARE NOT FIT TO BE CALLED A MAN AND YOU SHOULD NOT BE ALLOWED INTO THE KINGDOM!!!!!!!!
