Kudos to Australia for going the distance to investigate. But you can bet every country, if they investigated this thoroughly, would find the same rat's nest of evil (apologies to real rats, of the rodent kind).

Will it never end? I don't think that it will ever end, not so long as there are 2 sexes of people. Has anyone ever checked? Do animals rape one another or have they found a way to get along without it?

I pray that the jerks that do it.. just rots away. Nobody should ever abuse another human being no matter what sex, age or race. Thanks Cal

I hope all the dirty little secrets of the sick adults who caused children such shame and suffering are exposed. Let their names and photos be published for all to see --and be sure to include their addresses and phone numbers. Make them face their victims. Make them serve prison terms. Make them compensate their victims for their pain and suffering, as well as the cost of treatment, medications or income lost due to their inability to work. These predators are scum and should be treated as such.

Child abuse is always wrong. Children should be protected and cared for ---loved, nurtured, educated and allowed to be children, play have fun --develop an imagination. & grow into healthy, strong caring adults.

Dirty filthy excuses for the human race. Prison time with the prisoners meting out their own and well known brand of punishment to child abusers.
