Choreographer Wade Robson Claims Michael Jackson Ran ‘Sophisticated’ Child Abuse Operation
The Australian has filed to amend his 2013 lawsuit against the pop icon.
Julia Brucculieri Entertainment Writer, The Huffington Post
Celebrity choreographer Wade Robson, who has accused Michael Jackson of molestation, is seeking to pursue further negligence claims against two companies formerly controlled by the pop star. He claims the businesses aided in running a “child sexual abuse operation.”
Robson has filed to amend his 2013 lawsuit against MJJ Productions and MJJ Ventures, in which he accused the late music icon of molesting him between 1990 and 1997. The case was thrown out by a Los Angeles judge in 2015.
In the complaint, obtained by The Hollywood Reporter, Robson claims via lawyer Vince Finlandi, “MJJ Productions and MJJ Ventures were held out to the public to be businesses dedicated to creating and distributing multimedia entertainment by Michael Jackson, however, in fact, they actually served dual purposes.”
It continues: “The thinly-veiled, covert second purpose of these businesses was to operate as a child sexual abuse operation, specifically designed to locate, attract, lure and seduce child sexual abuse victims.....
Court upholds sentence given to rabbi in voyeurism case
Thursday, September 15, 2016
WASHINGTON (AP) — An appeals court has upheld an approximately 6 ½-year sentence given to a once-prominent Orthodox rabbi who pleaded guilty to secretly videotaping nude women at a Jewish ritual bath in Washington....
Freundel was arrested in 2014 after one of his recording devices was discovered at the National Capital Mikvah in Washington.
Prosecutors found he filmed some 150 women using recording devices hidden in a clock radio, a fan and a tissue box holder. He ultimately took a plea deal in the case, acknowledging that he made the secret recordings from 2009 to 2014.
The Real Impact of Child Abuse on Life Span
A past history of abuse and trauma can have a significant impact on a person's well-being and longevity. By Pam Peeke, M.D. Sept. 15, 2016
....new science is prompting doctors and other health professionals to take note of the impact of child abuse on long-term health and survival. In one recent, revealing study, scientists evaluated national survey data to determine the mortality rate of 6,300 people over the course of 20 years. The group was mostly white, roughly split between men and women, and had completed a questionnaire detailing any history of child abuse. At the end of the study, the average age of survivors was 47 years. The researchers controlled for other mitigating factors that could impact their findings, including socioeconomic status or mental health disorders.
The study’s findings were striking, particularly for women. Female subjects who reported having experienced physical abuse were 58 percent more likely to die from all causes during the study period. Women who were emotionally abused were 22 percent more likely to die during the observed 20 years. Men who had a history of child abuse did not experience any impact on overall mortality rates.
....A child subjected to ongoing abuse desperately seeks comfort from the pain. Food is the most common and accessible form of reward to neutralize the angst. But using food to self-soothe can lead to overeating, bingeing and weight gain well into adulthood, with its subsequent and serious medical consequences. Harvard researchers examined the relationship between child abuse, post-traumatic stress disorder and addictive eating, which is defined as the overconsumption of processed food products and is associated with a loss of control as well as shame, blame and guilt. Studying more than 40,000 women from the Nurses' Health Study, an ongoing health assessment study, the team led by women’s health expert Susan Mason (who is now on faculty at the University of Minnesota) found that a history of severe physical or sexual abuse was associated with an astonishing 90 percent increase in addictive eating behavior as a self-soothing coping mechanism. In a related study, Mason found women who exhibited the most PTSD symptoms, and for whom trauma (including parental divorce and bullying) or abuse began at an earlier age, were twice as likely to struggle with addictive eating. In this study, the type of trauma or abuse didn’t matter.
In a previous groundbreaking study supported by the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, researchers investigated the prevalence of child abuse in 17,000 Kaiser Permanente health plan members. Led by Dr. Vincent Felliti, an expert in childhood trauma and abuse who founded the department of preventive medicine for Kaiser Permanente in San Diego, researchers reported that they found “a strong graded relationship between the breadth of exposure to abuse or household dysfunction during childhood and multiple risk factors for several of the leading causes of death in adults.” The research team created the Adverse Childhood Experience, or ACE, questionnaire, which is one of the most valuable evaluation tools used by clinicians and investigators today. ACE questions relate to an individual’s first 18 years of life, and document the presence of any form of abuse and neglect; domestic violence; family member substance abuse, criminal history and mental illness; and parental relationship challenges, including separation and divorce....
As the number of ACEs increased, so did the risk for a wide spectrum of grave mental and physical medical conditions. These included alcoholism, smoking and drug abuse; depression; heart disease; obesity; poor work performance and academic achievement; sexual promiscuity; domestic partner violence; and suicide attempts....
