and physical mistreatment and we were only realizing this now we were forced to do things we wouldn't normally do because we were threatened that was our life the worse the treatment the more you felt this person was important to you every day with this man was a fight for survival in a fight to preserve your so what makes this all the more troubling is that the lives of these men as well as others were essentially being. as part of an experiment so they were rated psychologist helmet and even after his death in 2008 cantaloupe was regarded as a founder of more than 6 ology he was in effect a little more than a match maker putting neglected children into the care of predators. we learned about this experiment when daughter called in 2017 my thought was this can't be true i was not i'm a product of chance i was deliberately selected by the branch of the s.p.d.

party the ruling party at the time that hired a mercenary to destroy our lives in an experiment when we heard about it we felt it will demand what she keep all this as. the names of those responsible are missing but there must be a further investigation in my opinion this is one of the greatest crimes of the post-war era the fact that it was really an experiment is shameful and very humiliating it was tolerated for decades no one ever came along and asked how we were doing how life with our foster father was going nobody ever came over to check . those responsible are still sitting in offices or enjoying their pensions they're trying to hide behind a statute of limitations to torpedo another investigation is shameful that the perpetrator the organization is hiding behind legal quibbles to avoid shedding light on it this criminal organization should not be behind the investigation the

care system in germany has changed dramatically since scandalous time when it comes to who can act as a foster parent authors of a study into the can flourish experiment of told r.t. that there is no way his crimes were carried out without the welfare office being directly involved. in germany forced to care 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 this state investigation into the actions of templar and his experiment. has 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 canada bill in the dead 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 and foster homes the victims of abuse say the knowledge of the girl in government it makes them accomplices. in the crimes then and marco of pushing for legal action today after having been failed by the authorities then the berlin senate is 100 percent involved the berlin senate initiated it and then tolerated it it has already been admitted worley but not legally from the very beginning the only thing that mattered to them was how to keep the problem small criminal charges were put forward we file charges in the senate kept in touch with us since then there's been no contact with the senate it is impossible to build up such an organization on this scale without state help. we expect justice our lives have been destroyed we are unable to work and we have become aware that we are just a pile of misery we were put in this situation by the government deliberately it
3:07 am
was not an accident as we thought until now it is 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 is expressly directed to protect. new york police officers into a vicious attack by a protester on wednesday while they were supervising a mostly peaceful march against gun crime they were sold to where marchers met counter-protest as on brooklyn bridge the officers were making an arrest when an identified man is 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 just last month and showed his solidarity with the
3:08 am
protesters by taking the knee. beautiful moment of calm there as chief terrance monaghan of the new york city police department kneeled in solidarity with protesters. were taught philadelphia police captain ray lewis told us he's worried that office is these as the scene is the people's enemy protest. they're obviously much more concerned nowadays with being attacked due to the actions of other officers because there is such a thing called the halo effect and that is now every officer is being a certain as brutal and an enemy of the minority population the fact is these officers were it's fact totally unnecessarily what disappointed me with this is no no no the other protesters even pushed this guy away took them to the ground
