The State as Parent
State Intrusion into the Sanctity and Privacy of the Family

"We must remove the children from the crude influence of their families.
We must take them over and, to speak frankly, nationalize them

"[T]he most vulnerable children in our society ... are in our care; we, the state, are their parents"

"The first thing that a totalitarian regime tries to do is to get at the children,
to distance them from the subversive, varied influences of their families,
and indoctrinate them in their rulers' view of the world"

"Above all things, the child needs protecting from the state"

Establishment and
Institutionalised Child Abuse
Physical and Sexual Abuse by Various Political and Other 'Pillars of Society'
and/or by Child-Care Workers within the UK's State 'Care' System:

Watch this powerful insight into the horrific world of Melanie Shaw as a result of her simply telling the truth."

Why We Must Never Forget Melanie Shaw  (08 April 2015)

"Melanie Shaw is a very brave lady. Raped and abused from the age of 3-4 years old by members of her family, she was passed to the 'care' of a foster family who also abused her. She was then taken into the care of Beechwood children's home in Nottingham where she was abused until she was finally allowed to leave..."

Melanie Shaw, Nottingham Police, and Beechwood Children's Home  (28 August 2014)

"Nottingham Police Chief Constable, Chris Eyre, has threatened the UK Column with legal action if the site reports on Melanie Shaw and the Beechwood Care Home child sex abuse scandal. Surely a Chief Constable would be helping an inquiry into child abuse? Not in Nottingham it seems."

Staffordshire ('Pindown')  (1983-1989)

Zoompad's Pindown Inquiry  (25 January 2012)

"At last, I have finally been able to obtain a copy of the Report of the Staffordshire Child Care Inquiry 1990. ... I am going to use this blog spot to go through it, and add my own comments, as I know there are other people who went through the Pindown experience who have had their lives trashed, deliberately trashed, and I know there is at least one man who is so depressed that he just wants to die. Well, I hope that this blog will help people like that ... I hope and pray this blog will help other people."

The Pindown Report  (06 September 2011)

"This enquiry, established in June 1990 and reporting a year later, chronicles the development between 1983 and 1989 in Staffordshire children's homes of a method of controlling children known as 'Pindown'. It was initiated by a qualified social worker and sustained over a number of years by untrained staff who thought that what they were doing was sanctioned by an 'expert'. Senior staff did not enquire too closely into the methods used because the county was under serious financial constraints and the methods appeared both to work and to be cost-effective..."

A 'Pindown' Child Abuse Survivor Writes  (2010)

Pindown - UK Children's Homes  (Possibly 2010?)

"Pindown was a method of punishment used in children's homes in Staffordshire, and some other counties of the UK in the 1980s. It involved locking children in rooms called 'pindown rooms', sometimes for periods of weeks or months, similar to a lockdown prison. The children were kept in solitary confinement with little furniture, no conversation and repetitive occupations..."

"The Minister for Health (Mrs. Virginia Bottomley): With permission, I would like to make a statement about the report on residential care for children published during the recess by Staffordshire county council..."

Pindown  (No Date)

"Pindown was a method of behaviour management used in children's homes in Staffordshire, England in the 1980s. It involved isolating children, sometimes for weeks on end, and in some cases drove children to the verge of suicide. Following expressions of concern, the council ordered a public inquiry into the practice of 'Pindown'. The subsequent report condemned the practice as 'unethical, unprofessional, and illegal'..."

Zoompad's Blog

"As someone who has been both a victim of the evil Pindown child 'care' system, plus had the misfortune to be dragged through the secret family courts by the man who raped me for almost seven years, I have come to the conclusion that the main source of danger to vulnerable children comes from the area labelled 'child protection'. I have set up this blog to try to unravel exactly what is going on in the UK regarding institutional child abuse. ... Some people might think that this is an impossible task. How can one [very brave] woman take on this enormous paedophile ring? It might seem like a very big joke to some people, but the people who watched David the shepherd boy slay Goliath the giant must have laughed and mocked as well. This is my homeland, and I do not want to leave it and live elsewhere. It is a beautiful country, full of good things, but it is being ruined by just a few bad people. We all know that our country has something seriously wrong with it, we all grumble about the government and the violence on our streets, but what many people do not see is the link between the destructive behaviour of many of our young people, who feel utterly let down and beyond hope, and the complacency and corruption at the very top of society. This is what I intend to expose, just as a surgeon cuts the flesh to expose the cancerous growth, which needs to be removed before the patient can get well. The UK is suffering from such a cancer, it is called Corruption In High Places."

and they go down into the innermost parts of the belly"
(Proverbs 18:8)

"Every fool will be meddling ... Withdraw thy foot from thy neighbour's house:
lest he be weary of thee, and so hate thee"

(Proverbs 26:12)

"Woe unto them that decree unrighteous decrees,

"Woe to them that devise iniquity, and work evil upon their beds!
when the morning is light, they practice it, because it is in the power of their hand. ...
So they oppress a man and his house, even a man and his heritage"
(Micah 2:1-2)

"It is impossible but that offences will come: but woe unto him, through whom they come!
It were better for him that a millstone were hanged about his neck, and he cast into the sea,
than that he should offend one of these little ones"
(Luke 17:1-2)

"Let none of you suffer ... as a busybody in other men's matters"

"Never, anywhere in the Holy Bible will you find God giving civil government
any authority to rear or direct the rearing of children ...
God told parents, not the government, to 'train up' their children."
