It is common for children who are being sexually abused to keep the situation to themselves, as they feel worried or ashamed of telling somebody older, fearing they might judge them or reprimand them. Knowing it is very hard for them to open up and speak about it, we offer you a few things you should look up for in a child when you have the suspicion they might be getting abused on a sexual manner.

Did you know that in the UK, almost every ten minutes a police department receives a phone call denouncing a case of grooming? It’s a worrying amount of phone calls, don’t you think? Well, luckily for us, there are ways for preventing and supervising what are kids are watching and doing every time they go online.

As we have already stated on previous posts, grooming is the online approaching of adults towards minors, trying to earn our children’s trust and affection to finally appoint an encounter that might end up on sexual abuse. The attackers, generally, do not show themselves as adults, but they appear to be children around the same age as ours to appeal trustworthy and understanding for them. (more…)

Jeffrey Sandusky, 41, one of Jerry Sandusky’s adoptive sons (a retired college football coach), is confronting 14 charges for sexual abuse to minors.

Have you heard of Thorn?

Rafael Nuñez - Thorn

 

Founded in 2009 under the name of DNA Foundation, by Hollywood actors Demi Moore and Ashton Kutcher, Thorn is an organization that seeks to stop human and children trafficking from all around the world.

The idea and concept of the foundation comes as a result of Demi watching a MSNBC documentary about human trafficking and sexual slavery in Cambodia. Disgusted by what she had just watched, Moore started a research to find out that these crimes do not only happen in Cambodia or Africa, but in the United States and the rest of the world, as well.

Brad Pitt under investigation for child abuse

Brad Pitt - Under investigation

Brad Pitt is under investigation by the LAPD and L.A. County Dept. of Children and Family Services for allegedly getting verbally abusive and physical with his children, and that’s what triggered the divorce … TMZ has learned.

Sources familiar with the situation tell us, BradAngelina and their kids were on a flight last Wednesday when he allegedly got wasted on the private jet. He allegedly went wild, screaming and getting physical with the kids.

We’re told the plane landed at an airport around 8 PM, and witnesses say Pitt continued his rant on the tarmac, and even tried leaving in one of the fuel trucks.

Our sources say someone either on the plane or the tarmac anonymously reported the incident to the L.A. County Dept. of Children and Family Services. We’re told Brad and Angelina have already been interviewed and DCFS plans to interview the kids as well. That investigation is ongoing.

We’re also told the LAPD has the case … which is routine when anyone reports child abuse. We do not know the specifics of the alleged abuse … just that it was supposedly both verbal and physical.

Our sources say this incident triggered Jolie to separate from Brad the next day and file for divorce just days later.

A source close to Brad tells TMZ, “He takes the matter very seriously and says he did not commit any abuse of his children,” adding, “It’s unfortunate that people involved are continuing to present him in the worst possible light.”

| March 24, 2016 at 05:44 am

A shamed former Tory councillor was caught with images of child abuse after he stole a World War Two artefact from a museum.

Devious Neil Thorneywork, 61, stole a certificate – signed by Sir Winston Churchill – presented to pilot Albert Lowe of the Royal Observer Corps in 1943 for his bravery in the war.

The curator and former stock broker said he nicked the £500 piece after being sacked by the Broadway Tower Museum near Evesham, Worcestshire, and found himself struggling to pay his mortgage.

And when officers went to arrest Thorneywork at his home, they saw him mouth to his wife to get rid of “the USBs”.
