An Open Letter to The Amber Alert Complainers - NinjaMommers

An Open Letter to The Amber Alert Complainers - NinjaMommers | #OpHyacinth | Scoop.it
On Sunday night around 9:30pm EST the OPP used the new and enhanced Amber Alert program for the first time and people COMPLAINED. Come see what was said.
The Destroyer at #OpDejaVu's insight:
Only truly self-absorbed individuals complain about the efforts of parents and law enforcement officers who, with the help of the Amber Alert system, are actively searching for kids who have either been abducted, gone missing or worse.

How America Treats Its Own Children - TheAtlantic.com

How America Treats Its Own Children - TheAtlantic.com | #OpHyacinth | Scoop.it
This is a country that professes to care about children at their youngest and most fragile. But here, for every 100,000 live births, 28 women die in childbirth or shortly thereafter, compared with 11 in Canada. This ratio has more than doubled since 1990, despite the medical advances made in those decades, where it has gone down in other high-income countries. Black women are three times as likely to die giving birth or shortly after birth as white women. Black women in the United States die having a child at roughly the same rate as women in Mongolia.

Local cheer coach arrested for child pornography in England | KIRO-TV

Local cheer coach arrested for child pornography in England | KIRO-TV | #OpHyacinth | Scoop.it
Prosecutors have charged Lenny Lewis, Jr. with possession of child pornography after Lewis was caught by Border Force officers in England in March.

Lewis, 32, worked at Tech Gymnastics and All Star Cheer in Woodinville until February. The owner of the gym told KIRO-7 she asked Lewis to leave when she discovered he'd misrepresented himself on a background check.

According to charging documents, border investigators in England found images of child pornography on a cellphone belonging to Lewis on March 1 when he entered the country. They checked his phone because records showed he was a level 1 sex offender.

What separation from parents does to children: 'The effect is catastrophic' - Chicago Tribune

What separation from parents does to children: 'The effect is catastrophic' - Chicago Tribune | #OpHyacinth | Scoop.it
Their heart rate goes up. Their body releases a flood of stress hormones such as cortisol and adrenaline. Those stress hormones can start killing off dendrites — the little branches in brain cells that transmit messages. In time, the stress can start killing off neurons and — especially in young children — wreaking dramatic and long-term damage, both psychologically and to the physical structure of the brain.

Tony Alamo Christian Ministries: Child brides of cult speak - News.com.au

Tony Alamo Christian Ministries: Child brides of cult speak - News.com.au | #OpHyacinth | Scoop.it
In a bizarre twist, Alamo had a highly successful side line as a designer, manufacturing a line of rhinestone-studded custom jackets. By the 1980s, the jackets were a fashion staple in pop culture, favoured by some of world’s biggest celebrities, including James Brown, Prince, Madonna, Michael Jackson and even Mike Tyson.

The iconic black studded leather jacket worn by the King of Pop on the cover of his 1987 album Bad was an Alamo original.

What nobody knew at the time was that those jackets were manufactured using underpaid child labour at Alamo’s rural compound in the southeastern US state of Arkansas.

Prosecutors would later allege that he forced the children in his congregation to work on the custom jackets in makeshift on-site factories.

Cult awareness site Tony Alamo News, which chronicled the preacher’s life, said Alamo “realised that their small hands and fingers were perfect for handling the delicate rhinestones”. “They were to report to the warehouse directly after school and worked until as late as 10pm in the evenings,” the website says. “They were never compensated for their efforts.”

Pope accepts resignation of 3 Chilean bishops in sex abuse scandal » CapitalFM.co.ke | #OpHyacinth | Scoop.it

The mass resignation of bishops is almost unheard of, having last happened two centuries ago.

 

Several members of the Chile’s Catholic Church hierarchy are accused by victims of ignoring and covering up child abuse by Chilean paedophile priest Fernando Karadima during the 1980s and 1990s.

 

The scandal is the latest to rock the Roman Catholic Church, and Argentine-born Francis has said it must not happen again on his watch.

Tech companies 'must stop paedophiles uploading child sex abuse images', National Crime Agency says - The Independent | #OpHyacinth | Scoop.it
The National Crime Agency (NCA) has called for technology companies to stop paedophiles uploading child sex abuse images as it attempts to track down an “exponentially increasing” number of British people viewing them. The agency received 80,000 referrals over indecent photos and videos found on the internet last year alone and forecast the vile trend to worsen as people become increasingly “desensitised” to extreme pornography.
