Perhaps we are re-awakening, collectively, from that warm fuzzy antimacassar-strewn Victorian dreamword where childhood was a special time. Possibly we started to re-remember that for most of history children were just diminutive people who could fit into places full grown adults couldn’t and were easy prey for exploitation or abuse.
The Maiden Tribute to Babylon shocked the Victorians. We barely bat an eyelid now.
(not satire – it’s G4S and SERCO)
Private companies G4S and SERCO have agreed to pay out £100,000 in compensation for restraining torturing kids.
This illegal “restraining” by staff working for subsidiary companies belonging to the two multi-billion pound conglomerates has even resulted in the deaths of at least two children.
G4S went on to deal with the problem of the torturing and killing of children in their care by promoting one of the members of staff involved in it to the position of Health and Safety Manager in their children’s homes.
And Serco went on to allow its staff free range to also sexually assault young women who had been put in its care.
Could it be because they have friends in high places?
