Media & possible false allegations was created by redwine47
Can''t believe all the historic abuse allegations that are currently being reported. It''s very disturbing & very shocking if true but equally more shocking if these allegations are false.

If false... This does not help those genuine abuse cases domestic & non domestic that are currently being rejected due to lack of evidence & passing of time. What evidence is being produced in all these media inflated cases after all this time?

Would this be happening if it where the normal everyday people like ourselves? . :angry:

It is worrying.

I had always thought that when there is a huge media witch hunt like this, that it was people looking for a fast way to make money. Selling their story to the gutter press.

Now.... I am not so sure.

I know I heard stories about Jimmy Saville years ago, that I thought at the time were a load of bull. Now it seems they were probably true.

In any case like this, trial by media doesnt help.

The comments that bother me most about this are those ones which are ''why take all this time to come forward and not do something at the time?''.

At the time these people, many with very genuine cases (you will get some who jump on the bandwagon of something like this but there are processes to weed them out), were traumatised and very scared, and as was proven in a few cases, very unlikely to be believed.

These people threaten ''if you tell'', it is classic action. Abused, frightened and very young in most of these cases, sure they are going to come foward.
