directly involved. in germany forced to carry is the responsibility of future welfare offices so children and adolescents who leave in force to families always grow up i'm just 8 observation the thing that occurred in the 1st the homes we examined could not have happened without the knowledge of officials in the us welfare authorities there has never been the state's investigation into the actions of kempler and his experiment instead it is told us they are pushing for a nationwide examination to look at the real scale of the abuse since we have nationwide connections further research going to be limited only to berlin the center for education youth and family has said that she wants to submit an application to the conference of ministers to deal with sexual violence in foster homes it also makes sense to work with the independent commissioner for child sexual abuse and also scientific experts who are already in contact with them the

2:07 am
a matter of course that the senate will make amends the senate has offered as $10000.00 euros in return for us taking no further action against it the names of those responsible and the consequences for these people are still missing as long as it stays like that things are not over this is a particularly harrowing story of exploitation and failure to protect the state who was expressly directed to protect. new york police officers injured a vicious attack by a protester on wednesday while they were supervising a mostly peaceful march against gun crime they were assaulted when marchers met counter protesters on brooklyn bridge the officers were making an arrest and identified man has been seen running towards the officers and then beating them with a cane the n.y.p.d. says 3 of its officers sustained injuries including a police chief who only last month showed his solidarity with protesters by taking
