Report: Five Children Die Each Day From Abuse or Neglect - Lawmakers Urge Congress to Increase Spending to Curb Neglect by Mary Bruce Oct. 21, 2009 A new report out today found that on average, five children died from abuse or neglect every day in the United States between 2001 and 2007. The report by the advocacy group Every Child Matters, estimated that more than 10,000 children died over the same time frame. In 2007 alone 1,760 children died, a 35 percent increase over the death rate in 2001. And, due to poor reporting and record-keeping in many states, the actual number is estimated to be as much as 50 percent higher. http://abcnews.go.com/Politics/children-die-day-abuse-neglect-us/story?id=8883519
The FRANKLIN SCANDAL – A Story of Powerbrokers, Child Abuse & Betrayal By Nick Bryant Allegations of crimes, conspiracies, and cover-ups in the heartland and the capital – A chilling exposé of corporate corruption and government cover-ups, this account of a nationwide child-trafficking and pedophilia ring in the United States tells a sordid tale of corruption in high places. The scandal originally surfaced during an investigation into Omaha, Nebraska’s failed Franklin Federal Credit Union and took the author beyond the Midwest and ultimately to Washington, DC. Implicating businessmen, senators, major media corporations, the CIA, and even the venerable Boys Town organization, this extensively researched report includes firsthand interviews with key witnesses and explores a controversy that has received scant media attention.
The Franklin Scandal is the story of a nationwide pedophile ring that pandered children to a cabal of the rich and powerful. The ring’s pimps were a pair of Republican powerbrokers who used Boys Town as a pedophiliac reservoir, had access to the highest levels of our government, and connections to the CIA. ISBN: 0977795322
