Petition Tag - molestation
South Africa has the highest rape statistics in the world. Every 10 minutes a women in South Africa is violated, physically and emotionally for the rest of her life.
Catching the perpetrator after the fact, is not the answer as that woman's life has been irrevocably changed for the worse by that stage. What is the South Africa Government doing to proactively reduce these statistics and restore dignity to the women of South Africa?
Please sign this petition if you feel strongly about this issue so that we may take this forward to the various structures in South Africa demanding proactive solutions.
On June 26 2011, the Bombay High Court suggested that Molestation should be made a non bailable offence.
Chief Justice Mohit Shah and Justice Ranjana Desai orally directed the state government to take action to make the offence (molestation) non-bailable. “As this offence is at present a bailable one, the police tend to take it lightly and don’t take prompt action in such cases. This is what seems to have happened in this case as well. If it is made a non-bailable offence, both the police and anti-social elements will take it seriously,” Chief Justice Shah said. (FROM TIMES OF INDIA)
We, the citizens of India, have decided that enough is enough and we have to take some action. Rich offenders should not be able to escape with their crime due to their luxuriously surplus bank accounts. Hence, we present this petition.
90 percent of child molesters are out of jail in under 6 years, and most will do it again.
These people are getting minimal sentences for a crime, that not only affects the child mentally, but physically, and not to mention the emotional damage it does to the families.
It's time we stop giving these monsters a slap on the wrists, and sending them rushing back into the playgrounds.
-->Its access is very regulated and information obtained may only be used during investigation of crimes where there are reasonable grounds to suspect that they are of a sexual nature.
-->THIS means the registry cannot be used if they have not committed the crime. Exmp.) A man tries to persuade a young girl to his car. **Using the girl's description of the man and location of the incident, police cannot access the registry to match potential previous offenders that exist in that area, or match the physical description.**
-->THIS means the crime has to be committed FIRST, which does nothing to PREVENT sexual assaults
-->Canada has dangerous offender legislation, which allows for indefinite jail terms
-->Finally, there is no harmonized standards in which all provinces abide by, it is basically every province giving privilege, and reinforcing the system based on how they deem necessary.
Elsa Newman. Please remember that name. Please google that name for information about this mother, unjustly imprisoned at Maryland Correctional Institution for women.
The exact details of the circumstances that have led to this injustice cannot be divulged here for legal reasons. But further information can be obtained from my blog located at http://elsanewmanisinnocent.blogspot.com/
A few months back, my 4 year old daughter was molested inside the climbing tunnels in the Ladera Ranch 24 hour fitness kids gym, by an older boy. Sadly she is not the only child harmed in these tunnels.
The tunnels are opaque and children can hide inside out of view from the babysitters, and cameras. The boy who molested her was between the age of 9-11 and significant trauma was done to her vaginal area. The gym refuses to take responsibility for this crime, and will NOT remove the tunnels.
We need these tunnels out and the gym to realize the harm they are allowing to happen to young children.
On March 9, 2006, The Jury of the Superior Court of California in Redwood City convicted my father Boping Chen of 63 counts of lewd and lascivious acts with a minor, allegedly having molested a 10 year old girl from September 2001 to June 2004 during piano lessons. He was sentenced to 14 year in prison on June 2nd, 2006.
My father is a piano teacher who has been teaching for over 20 years, five of which was since our family moved to the United States. Allegedly, during the two years and 10 months of his teaching, he had molested this girl over 63 times during his 126 lessons over the years. However, the piano lessons are held in a living room with 2 open entrances, in which the live-in nanny and the girl’s younger sister would often cross. The nanny, who has been with the family for five years, testifies that she did not see any unusual behavior in any of the lessons. Furthermore, my father has taught over 30 other students; both students and parents of these students vouch that my father is an excellent teacher. None believe that their teacher is capable of committing such a crime.
Other testimonies place the truthfulness of the girl’s story in question. The nanny would often be unjustly accused as having stole stuff from the mother, of which all accusations were proven false. Another teacher who taught the girl Chinese testifies that the girl would scream at the teacher, throwing tantrums after refusing to correct sentences in her composition. Instead, she would furiously cross out the sentences in the notebook and toss it to the floor. Although the mother claims that her daughter was "… shy, introverted, and inarticulate...," leading to a susceptibility to molestation, these other testimonies seem to indicate that the girl is fully capable of expressing her disapproval of situations she dislikes and even lies to try to get her way.
Another factor is the fact that the girl’s piano skills benefited greatly from the lessons. In the 34 month period, the girl went from a beginner level course to a level 5 course, completing 12 music books and progressing in 3 others. If her teacher had been “continuously” molesting her for “almost every lesson” from October 2001 to June 2004 as the girl claims, how exactly would a young girl be able to process approximately 5 years worth of material without a teacher who actually teaches her? From all accounts the girl is bright, but by no means a prodigy that would be capable of such a feat. Even the girl’s account of “almost every lesson” is considered incredulous by the prosecution, who lowered the charges to half of every lesson taken, 63 out of 126.
The Juror’s reasons for convicting my father are also quite absurd. “The girl testified naturally and smoothly and believable; but the defendant was defensive… therefore, we believed he was guilty.” Because the defendant was defensive and the girl talked smoothly, the Juror’s decided that my father was guilty?
This conviction was based solely on the Juror’s emotions which were turned by the story of the “victim,” rather than by the testimonies of the trial; that my father is a good teacher with lots of people vouching for his credibility and it would be unfair to convict him based solely on the testimony of a little girl rather than by hard evidence.
Domestic Violence is taking the Freedom from Women, Children, Men, and Entire Families, Mother's, Father", Siblings etc.
I propose that we pass a Law instituting a Criminal Backround check on both the Male and the Female to find out if they have ever been convicted of a Domestic Violence or Child Molestation.
If either party has, they must tell the other before they get Married.
It is very costly to Rehabilitate a Family once the Violence is Reported to the Authorites.
The Couple to be Married would pay the cost.
Those Monies should and could help with Education, Job Training, the Deficit, and many other things needless to say it could be Saving Lives.
I am a Survivor, and if you have never ever been a Victim, never become one, and If you have ever had to struggle to be a Survior, help me to win this fight.
May the Angels watch over You.
