Australian Government Contractors Will Now Go to Jail for Reporting Child Abuse in Detention Centers June 26, 2015 by Lauren Gillin

Greg Barnes is a barrister and national president of the Australian Lawyers Alliance. He told VICE that the legislation prevents someone's ethical and moral duty to report abuse.

"It's ironic at the same time we have a royal commission into institutionalized sexual abuse we have a government supported by the Labor party, which is deliberately setting about to prevent disclosure of serious criminal abuse," he said.

Mr. Barnes says the law is aimed at anyone having anything to do with asylum seekers in any setting.

"If someone disclosed information that the Australian Navy or customs pushed a boat back out into dangerous waters—and people drowned because of it—they could go to jail."

He says he has "no doubt" there would be legal challenges to the legislation as "most judges and the courts generally would be horrified by legislation that allows for the cover up of physical and mental abuse."


After Josh Duggar admitted to his parents Jim Bob and Michelle that he had fondled multiple minor females in his home, his parents say they were swift to move into action, and get him treatment. Only can reveal the faith-based center, founded by a controversial figure.

Radar has identified the facility as the Insitute in Basic Life Principles Training Center in Little Rock, founded by Bill Gothard. Gothard was previously accused of sexually grooming and inappropriately touching young women in his ministry, and while he was later cleared of any wrongdoing, he resigned amid the scandal.
Today, the centers claim to “strengthen individuals and families through sound Biblical teaching and character development opportunities and to demonstrate Christ’s love through serving,” according to a church website.The programs have come under fire in the past, with several alumni questioning their methods on online forums. John Krull, Executive Director of the Indiana Civil Liberties Union called the Indianapolis center an “apalling” “shadow world, where these kids almost disappear” after local Child Protective Services began investigating complaints about the facility. The facility’s Principal, Rodger Gergeni, denied allegations of abuse.

The Little Rock facility is located in an imposing former VA hospital that also houses a local substation of the Little Rock Police Department. A former leader at the center, Harold Walker, confirmed Josh’s attendance to Radar.

“I really don’t remember the circumstances on why Josh came to our center,” Walker said, “He came down … they used to work at the center, the entire family did.”

When questioned specifically about the sex crimes claims, he said, “I have to talk to them [the Duggars] about it.”

He declined to comment further.

A police report released yesterday claimed that Jim Bob said church elders had agreed that Josh “needed to be put into a treatment program.”

Jim Bob told cops that Josh was in the program in Little Rock from March 17, 2003, until July 17, 2003.

Jim Bob and Michelle “said that they were both comfortable that nothing had occurred since [redacted] went through the program in Little Rock. They both felt that [redacted] no longer had any problem and that all of this had been resolved.”

Story developing.\\\\



" founder of a chain of Christian “treatment” centers Jim Bob and Michelle Duggar sent their eldest son to for molesting five girls — including his sisters — resigned in 2014 under a cloud of accusations that he had “sexually groomed” and harassed young women and teens in his ministry.

According to RadarOnline Josh Duggar was taken by his father to the Basic Life Principles Training Center in Little Rock, for counseling after admitting to groping the young girls.

Bill Gothard, a Christian writer and minister, founded the Institute in Basic Life Principles (IBLP) in 1961, as a way to help families resolve issues by using Biblical principles. Among the services offered at IBLP are ministry seminars, community outreach, counseling for troubled Christians, and mentoring Christian youth.

In an interview, Harold Walker, a former leader at the Little Rock location said he recalled Josh Duggar being brought in, but couldn’t recall the reasons why.

“I really don’t remember the circumstances on why Josh came to our center,” Walker said, “He came down … they used to work at the center, the entire family did.”

In a police report filed after Jim Bob Duggar took his son to a local police officer to discuss what happened, police noted that the Duggars said they placed Josh in a “treatment facility” upon the advice of church elders.

Michelle Duggar later admitted that their son had also been farmed out to a friend who did home remodeling, where Josh did manual labor as part of his rehabilitation.

Gothard, and IBLP, has a colorful history with his Gothard’s brother Steve being forced out after having affairs with a few of the institute’s secretaries.

Gothard himself left under a cloud in 2014, amid accusations that he had sexually harassed multiple women and failed to report allegations of child abuse at IBLP.

IBLP issued an internal report stating Gothrad acted “inappropriately — which was in turn disputed by former members of the ministry who called it “deceptive” — however the 80-year-old chose to leave the ministry he founded.

In 2010, Michelle Duggar received a “Mother of the Year ” award from the head of a ministry who also resigned after admitting to adultery.

That ministry was subsequently shuttered.

Tiffany Sedaris (one of six siblings who include among them actress Amy Sedaris and Author David Sedaris) is reminisced in an article by her brother David following her May, 2013 suicide. he briefly includes mention of her having been sent to Élan:
“A few weeks after these messages were written, Tiffany ran away, and was subsequently sent to a disciplinary institution in Maine called Élan. According to what she told us later, it was a horrible place. She returned home in 1980, having spent two years there, and from that point on none of us can recall a conversation in which she did not mention it. She blamed the family for sending her off, but we, her siblings, had nothing to do with it. Paul, for instance, was ten when she left. I was twenty-one. For a year, I sent her monthly letters. Then she wrote and asked me to stop. As for my parents, there were only so many times they could apologize. “We had other kids,” they said in their defense. “You think we could let the world stop on account of any one of you?”

Daytop Village / Re: Millbrook Adolescent facility closed?
« on: March 04, 2012, 08:14:43 PM »
It is closed. I am told renovations are occurring and that it will reopen as an Adult Women’s facility as part of their "Women’s Program".
Teen residential placements are still available at other locations.

As for why the closing, I do not know for sure. Factors may be the violence that took place there which became publicly known about a year ago, or the splitee breaking into a home nearby causing it a final straw of a stir.

Quote from: "Ursus"
So... Jerry Sandusky apparently loved kids so much, that he founded The Second Mile group home in 1977... to help those less fortunate.
That might not have been the only reason.
Indeed, it seems he had more than his love of showering with ten year olds paying off for him there at the Second Mile.

Woah, BuzzKill, this lady is off her rocker…and hopefully will end up off the bench for good.  I was really impressed with the ‘what you can do’ page thoughtfully included on the following site. The PDF link to the charges is not working there. ‘Hope they fix that, because while compelling, the provided summary is vague for certain references. Maybe they could relink it to the PDF of the charges your second link provides...IDK.

An aba article which includes PDFs of letters from Judge William’s attorney (Oedel) threatening legal action (against Ira Glass for his ‘Very Tough Love’ reporting) and  from Ira Glass’ attorney (Conway), provides some glimpses into the mindset of Judge Williams.

That sure is a pretty demonstration img. over Ocean Beach, but Solidarity managing to coordinate even a brief peaceful shut down of the port of Oakland sends a stronger message.

What an abusive program director feigns an obtuse mix of innocence and ignorance whilst deflecting blame on his former colleagues even when confronted with compelling evidence like his own audio presence on the video documenting the abuses he claims to never have witnessed and to also disapprove of and to meekly defend as being tough love???…so sick of it!!!!!!

Well still another thread on this topic bodes well for an investigation resulting of the relatively recently made public video of Sarge McFarland abusing other minors. Pasadena boot camp abuse getting national coverage
It’s absolutely wonderful that an investigation into the crimes of child abuse that took place on the videos is being launched and the national attention that comes with such an investigation will prove to be an opportunity to give parent’s reason they can connect to about reconsidering the risks of placing their kids in programs in favor of less perilous options.
It would also be so nice if the D.A. prosecuting the kidnapping and abuse of the minor and extortion attempt made on her family by Kevin McFarland could somehow manage to get these videos into evidence and recognized for what they are—a prior documented history of the defendant’s abuse of minors…especially considering the kidnapping charge with that case carries the potential of some hefty consequences.  Sure *Sarge* is probably well familiar with throwing the word consequences around, but it’s been long in coming that he be dealt some.
