Sentenced to two years the father ogre
RIMINI, 06/11/2009 - He was sentenced to two years the 40 years old worker from Rimini guilty of having abused not once but several times of her younger daughter, who at the time was only 4. The child, who is now 6, confessed everything to his mother, who also have a two-years younger daughter with the man and was warned by her parents. She had understood that her daughter says she was invited by his father to pick up the penis, to fondle and kiss him. Little had gone even further in detail, explaining that on one occasion she had refused, saying clearly that was shit. In vain, during the trial that followed, the man tried to explain that it was a misunderstanding. The challenge is to understand whether the child's mother will even start practice to ask the Juvenile Court to remove the man the paternal authority.

The charges against him weigh like rocks: sexual violence against the minor child, abuse in the family, private violence.

Death to pedophile!

Hanging on live TV. This is the new challenge of Channel 4, who will broadcasts on 9th November a fiction focused on Paul Gadd, better known as 1970s rock star Gary Glitter and played by scottish actor Hilton McRae.

Channel 4: The Execution of Gary Glitter

Gary Glitter spent four months in prison in the UK in 1999 for downloading child pornography. In 2002 was expelled from Cambodia and in 2008 has been released from prison in Vietnam after serving almost three years for sexual molestation of two underage girls of 11 and 12 years old. Finally, in march 2006, was discovered the singer had a daguhter from a vietnamese prostitute and she also sold him her 10 years old niece.

The fiction "The execution of Gary Glitter" is set in an imaginary Britain in which the death penalty has been re-introduced (abolished in 1969), because of a law against pedophilia named "Capital Crimes Against Children". In this parallel world, the first person to be tried under the new legislation is Paul Gadd and the movie follows his trial and execution.

A poll commissioned by Channel 4 found 70% of those surveyed thought the UK should have the death penalty as the maximum possible penalty for the most serious crimes.

Pedophile caught half-naked with four children in car

Carpenedolo (Brescia), 4th october 2009 - It happens in Carpenedolo, near Brescia, where on 4 October, the Traffic Police in Montichiari spoke shortly after 17 to check a Fiat Punto parked at a rest area, reported by some passers who had heard cries coming from the vehicle. The police found a 57 years old farmer with his pants down, masturbating in front of four Moroccan children of 5, 7, 11 and 12 years old, two pairs of sisters, cousins to each other, frightened and in tears. The man, a neighbor of one of them, had lured them into a park near a mall, offering them a ride by car to take her back home. Medical examinations were then established that the four would not have suffered abuse and physical violence. Man, who seemed not to have leaks from the first resisted and even sketched out any kind of apology about what was happening, but was then challenged also resisting a public officer, in addition to the crimes of kidnapping, indecent exposure in public places and sexual acts against children.
During the raid at his house they have been seized videotapes containing child pornography. The man, with no criminal record and married with a grown up daughter, after confirming custody on 8 October, remains in solitary confinement in the home district of Canton Mombello (a regime which for him is a guarantee of safety from a unwritten law that treats pedophiles as infamous). In the meantime, the defense has asked for a psychiatric evaluation. "If child abuse is a deviant I wish someone would tell us - said the lawyer Marino Colosio - whether my client knew what he was doing and still is aware of his condition and his actions."

Ogre father in jail

Sexual abuse of baby daughter. Ogre father in jail
In trouble even his mother who was blackmailing her husband but continues to live next to the child

TURIN, 3 November 2009 - Several days ago a man was sentenced to 5 years and 4 months by a court in Turin to have made sexual acts against the daughter when she was born just three months before. After the verdict, the accused still at large, had returned to live with the child and his partner, but yesterday was arrested.
The man, who lives in Anzio in the province of Rome, was taken in custody by agents of the Criminal Section of Turin. The protective order was signed to prevent the risk of recurrence of crime. In the meantime, also the mother of the small was under investigation on charges of sexual violence in the competition omission.

The wiretaps have enabled us to discover that she was aware of the abuses committed by the husband and therefore was blackmailing the man: "Do as I say, or I'll sue you." The man, who today is 70 years old and his wife 47, are the parents of little, born in 2003 (when the family lived in Turin and Daddy Ogre was 66) and sexually abused by their father began three months later. The man used to get completely naked in bed, next to the baby. Then he reached into the small diaper and caressed her intimate parts. Other times, rubbing his sexual organ against the child's diaper, procuring redness and vaginal bleeding. One day the mother of the newborn became aware of the presence of a pubic hair in her daughter's diapers, believing that the problem was linked to the brand of diapers, he decided to buy another brand.

But the pubic hair did not disappear. The woman still did not suspect anything, then a few days later, returned home, she discovered her husband busy rubbing his penis against the child's diaper. The woman was silent to observe, but from that point on he began to blackmail him.
All the facts that emerged during the wiretaps ordered by the court: "Look, if I run the shit you do end up in jail there," "The other year in November I exploded," Fortunately she was small and does not remember anything" "I very detached from his father, but I know not to lay off due to leave them alone."

Phrases that leave no doubt that the mother knew and kept silent. Indeed, the mother knew and blackmailed her husband. That's why, now, is finished in trouble too. Too bad, though, that she continues to live with her daughter. It will be the Court of Rome (since the family moved in the meantime, a town in Lazio) make a decision, after the arrest of his father, this paradoxical situation.

She was my daughter

At "Del Tre" theatre in Catania (Sicily, Italy),
on Friday 22, Saturday 23 and Sunday 24 May 2009, they will put on the play “She was my daughter" by Luigi Favara, directed by Giovanni Scuto, interpreted by Liliana Scalia, Stefania Micale, Cettina Giorgianni, Roberto Pricoco and Luigi Favara himself.

It is a drama coming from cultural activities of the association "Oltre le quinte", and talking about pedophilia using realistic and metaphysical descriptions, of reality theatre, avant-garde and greek tragedy, with pieces about Sicily and its traditions and enunciation of articles from the International Convention on the right of the Child.

“She was my daughter” talking about a mother emigrated from Sicily with her 13yo daughter in northern Italy, where she lives one of the worst nightmare of a parent: "the rape and the violent death of her daughter" because of a pedophile.

The purpose of the play is to put attention on this argument, reporting not only the crime but also the absence of the institutes which should protect the minors.

Pedophilia is a difficult argument, because of the moral and religious implication (think to Sex crimes and Vatican, 2006 scandal video about pedophile priests). Cinema, theatre and Literature often talk about pedophilia, sometimes with a difficult path, like "Animanera" (Blacksoul) by Raffaele Verzillo, a 2006 movie which found a distribution only 2 years later, and it was a flop. An italian masterpiece is "Death in Venice" by Luchino Visconti (1971), from the Thomas Mann's "The death in Venice”, talking the love between a 50yo musician and a polish teenager. We also remember "La mala educacion" by Pedro Almodovar which talk about two gay teenagers and a priest, Don Manolo; “Mystic River” directed by Clint Eastwood, winner of two Oscar and a Golden Globe; "Doubt" (2008), written and directed by John Patrick Shanley, adapted from the homonymous play. 1964, in a school in Bronx, a priest is suspected to have abused of a child; interpreted by Meryl Streep, nominated for this role at Academy Awards 2009.

Report Details Abuses in Irish Reformatories


LONDON, May 20, 2009 — Tens of thousands of Irish children were sexually, physically and emotionally abused by nuns, priests and others over 60 years in a network of church-run residential schools meant to care for the poor, the vulnerable and the unwanted, according to a report released in Dublin on Wednesday.

The 2,600-page report paints a picture of institutions run more like Dickensian orphanages than 20th-century schools, characterized by privation and cruelty that could be both casual and choreographed.

“A climate of fear, created by pervasive, excessive and arbitrary punishment, permeated most of the institutions,” the report says. In the boys’ schools, it says, sexual abuse was “endemic.”

The report, by a state-appointed commission, took nine years to produce and was meant to help Ireland face and move on from one of the ugliest aspects of its recent history. But it has infuriated many victims’ groups because it does not name any of the hundreds of individuals accused of abuse and thus cannot be used as a basis for prosecutions.

It was delayed because of a lawsuit brought by the Christian Brothers, the religious order that ran many of the boys’ schools and that fought, ultimately successfully, to have the abusers’ names omitted. In 2003, the commission’s first chairwoman resigned, saying that Ireland’s Department of Education had refused to release crucial documents. The report covers a period from the 1930s to the 1990s, when the last of the institutions closed.

It exposes for the first time the scope of the problem in Ireland, as well as how the government and the church colluded in perpetuating an abusive system. The revelations have also had the effect of stripping the Catholic Church, which once set the agenda in Ireland, of much of its moral authority and political power.

The report singles out Ireland’s Department of Education, meant to regulate the schools, for running “toothless” inspections that overlooked glaring problems and deferred to church authority.

The report is based in part on old church records of unreported abuse cases and in part on the anonymous testimony of 1,060 former students from a variety of 216 mostly church-run institutions, including reformatories and so-called industrial schools, set up to tend to neglected, orphaned or abandoned children.

Most of the former students are now 50 to 80 years old.

Some 30,000 children were sent to such places over six decades, the report says, often against their families’ wishes and because of pressure from powerful local priests. They were sent because their families could not afford to care for them, because their mothers had committed adultery or given birth out of wedlock, or because one or both of their parents was ill, drunken or abusive. They were also sent because of petty crime, like stealing food, or because they had missed school.

Many of the former students said that they had not learned their own identities until decades later. They also said that their parents had unsuccessfully tried to reclaim them from the state.

In a litany that sounds as if it comes from the records of a P.O.W. camp, the report chronicles some of the forms of physical abuse suffered in the boys’ schools:

“Punching, flogging, assault and bodily attacks, hitting with the hand, kicking, ear pulling, hair pulling, head shaving, beating on the soles of the feet, burning, scalding, stabbing, severe beatings with or without clothes, being made to kneel and stand in fixed positions for lengthy periods, made to sleep outside overnight, being forced into cold or excessively hot baths and showers, hosed down with cold water before being beaten, beaten while hanging from hooks on the wall, being set upon by dogs, being restrained in order to be beaten, physical assaults by more than one person, and having objects thrown at them.”

Some of the schools operated essentially as workhouses. In one school, Goldenbridge, girls as young as 7 spent hours a day making rosaries by stringing beads onto lengths of wire. They were given quotas: 600 beads on weekdays and 900 on Sundays.

Girls were routinely sexually abused, often by more than one person at a time, the report said, in “dormitories, schools, motor vehicles, bathrooms, staff bedrooms, churches, sacristies, fields, parlors, the residences of clergy, holiday locations and while with godparents and employers.”

The Vatican had no response. But leaders of various religious orders — who often argued during the investigations that the abuse was a relic of another time, reflecting past societal standards — issued abject apologies on Wednesday, taking care to frame the problem as something that is now behind them.

Cardinal Sean Brady, the Catholic primate of All Ireland, said in a statement that he was “profoundly sorry and deeply ashamed,” adding, “I hope the publication of today’s report will help heal the hurts of victims and address the wrongs of the past.”

David Clohessy, director of the Survivors Network of Those Abused by Priests, a group based in St. Louis, said that while the report had failed in its duty to bring the perpetrators to justice, it had been clear about the failings of the church.

“While horrific, widespread reports of abuse and cover-up are sadly quite common, the significance here is that a government panel is conclusively saying that the finger-pointing and blame-shifting and excuse-making of the church hierarchy is bogus,” he said in an interview.

The commission was formed in 2000, after an explosive series of radio programs and documentaries in the 1990s began exposing a terrible secret that had been kept by an entire society: the details of what went on in the children’s homes. In 1999, Bertie Ahern, then the prime minister, issued a blanket apology to the victims of the abuse.

Since then, the accusations and the question of justice have been a preoccupation across Ireland and among Irish emigrants around the world. In 2002, the Catholic Church in Ireland agreed to pay $175 million to compensate victims of sexual abuse by members of the clergy. A separate group has paid out some $1.5 billion so far to more than 10,000 people who have claimed they were abused in state and church-run institutions.

Terence McKiernan, president of, an American group that maintains an Internet archive of material related to Catholic abuse, said that the report had failed by not going far enough.

“The report is significant in that it provides a detailed anatomy of how the abuse occurred and the institutions in which it occurred,” he said in an interview. “The problem is that you spend almost 10 years and who knows how much money, and you never get to the point of saying who was responsible.”

Media Quake

Earthquake hits central Italy
A large earthquake of magnitude 6.3 hit central Italy in the early hours of Monday morning

L'aquila (Italy) - 6th april, 2009 - A large earthquake of magnitude 6.3 hit central Italy in the early hours of Monday morning, according to the United States Geological Survey. Buildings were reported collapsed in the centre of Aquila, capital of the Abruzzo region, 50 miles north-east of Rome and close to the quake's epicentre. According to the website of the Italian newspaper La Repubblica, police in the town, which has a population of 73,000, said people were trapped in the rubble and that many people could be injured. Residents in Rome were woken by the quake when it struck at about 3.30am local time. Rafael Abreu, of the USGS described the event as a shallow quake and said that the region had been hit by a smaller magnitude 4 quake earlier in the day. The USGS had earlier estimated that the quake measured 6.7. Abreu said residents in the area should be braced for aftershocks, adding: "This is a significant quake, a shallow quake with possibility of damage and injuries." The country's civil protection services were reportedly being called in to help residents affected by the quake and a local reporter, Nick Pisa, told Sky News that people were assembling in the streets in Rome, which is rarely affected by seismic events, braced for aftershocks. Local reports described furniture rattling and car alarms being set off. The quake was the latest and strongest in a series to hit the l'Aquila area on Sunday and Monday. Earthquakes can be particularly dangerous in parts of Italy, which is a treasure house of centuries-old buildings.

The Love Train

Abused at 8 years old and forced to abuse a 5 years old boy

The man was framed by the abused 10yo boy forced to abuse another 5yo child. «A logic and clear tale» says the police chief Francesco Messina who, with great embarassement (he's a dad too), explaining a story he never wanted to tell. It's a story of human insanity which involved two young children and put in jail a 42yo workman from Equador who worked like a gardener in community for difficult children. The child was 8 when everything happened. A smart boy from a family with problems. He has no father and the mother had problems with drugs in the past: now she has a work. The child frequented a religious community and became fond of Shiki Tankamash, 42 years old, workman in a factory in Arese (near Milan) who lives in Rosate. «a sort of father figure» tell vice-quaestor Alessandra Simone. Availing himself of the opportunity, the man acted a three steps plan. «Firstly, he took him to see some fishes - explains the head of police - then he started to touch him. He invited him at home saying there was his nephew and he could play with him. Finally, he abused him, threaten him to say nothing to his mother». He didn't stop here: «You have to make the same things we make with your 5 y.o. little friend». A risk he paid dearly. The younger boy told to his mother who was frightened and contacted the mother of the older one. Together, they went in the community and involed the religious men. The child (10 y.o. nowadays) was interrogated two times with a psychologist and told a story which framed the monster. Particulars confirmed by his 5yo friend. The head of police gave another significant information: «94 per cent of the abuses take place in the own houses, the others on the street.»

Sunday, January 25, 2009


Bitter controversy for the song "Robin", included in the last album of the 74 years old italian singer Gino Paoli, famous for songs like "A tast of salt". The song talks about a 70 years old pedophile who dies in the arms of a little girl while he is abusing of her. The caress of the child seems an act of mercy which shocked the public opinion.


She has the eyes like a robin
she was an eleven years old woman
she lifted up the skirt to jump over the ditch
she was dressed in red.

While she was crossing that garden
she met a 70 years old child
he still wanted to seize everything
and he didn't know what's good and what's bad

and he catch her with spite
she found her legs up
he was searching what to do
there was fear and there was pain.

And the pain took him in the heart
like it happens with the first love
and so she takes him in her arms
with the small hands caressed his face
then he fallen asleep to rest forever
like a child tired to play.
