the authorities either ignored evidence of abuse or were complicit in letting it continue cases as recent as 2003 and details stem back to the 1960 s. peter oliver has been speaking with some of the victims who came forward. decades of abuse carried out by those put in a position to protect the most vulnerable in society for 30 years starting in the 1970 s. . place children in the care of a convicted paedophile named for its age i spoke to 2 of his victims to protect their right to anonymity they'll be named only. and marco. our daily lives were dominated by instructions we were shielded from the outside world like a sect most of the time we faced violence if we wanted to go out or meet someone else we were intimidated and told these people were bad should have nothing to do

with them if we wanted to go anyway we were forbidden every day it was mental and physical mistreatment and we're 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 and the fight to preserve yourself what makes this more troubling is that the lives of these men as well as essentially being. as part of an experiment. rated psychologist helmet and even after his death in 2010 was regarded as they found. he was in effect little more than a match maker putting neglected children into the care of predators. we learned about this experiment called in 2017 my thought was this can't be true i was not a mere product of chance i was deliberately selected by the branch of the s.p.d.
4:04 am
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. and what particularly bothers us is that the names of those responsible are missing but there must be a further. their 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 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 kempler 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 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 foster homes we examined could not have happened without the knowledge of officials in the u. welfare authorities there has never been this state investigation into the actions of templar and his experiment in senators 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 bill in the dead only to berlin the center for education youth and family has said that she wants to submit an
4:06 am
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 and in moscow a pushing for me to go action today after our. being failed by the authorities then . the berlin senate is 100 percent involved the bird in senate initiated it and then tolerated it it's already been admitted verbal eep 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's 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
4:07 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 there resulted when the marches met counter protesters on brooklyn bridge the officers were making arrests one and identified man is seen running towards the officers and then meeting with a k. the n.y.p.d. says 3 of its officers did sustain injuries including the very same police chief who only last month showed his solidarity with other protesters but taking the knee
4:08 am
. you know for a moment of calm there as chief terrance monaghan of the new york city police department kneeled in solidarity with protesters. well retired philadelphia police captain ray lewis says he's worried these days that office is now seen as the people's enemy by protest is. there obviously much more concern nowadays with being attacked due to the actions of other officers because there's such a thing called the halo effect and that is now every officer is being asserted on as brutal and enemy of the minority population the fact is these officers were it's fact totally unnecessarily what disappointed me with this is you know no the other protesters even pushed this guy away welcome to the ground
4:09 am
focused weapon you want to win over. empathy for your movement do the right thing justice is for everybody the solution to violent protest is to confront the reason you have violent protests confront the economic disparities can confront the job lack of job opportunity confront the lack of education for black people these are so huge that go in to these protests. and instead she was briefly appeared on a plane thin the english port city of bristol in just a few weeks ago the longstanding moneyman to a slave trade it was unceremoniously thrown into the hobby a miracle the start you had to coast in that was told a major anti-racism rally last month later was retrieved by the authorities and take it away so here's what went up in its place of wednesday it's a statue of company we created in the moment that she stood on the plane after that
4:10 am
rally and raised a fist in about post salute it drew more than a few onlookers to is what some of thought about it. i think yes absolutely fantastic it's good for the people of bristol it's good for lives marked i think personally i think you should stop this statue was a wreck he did legally. and i think it was a democracy you should be able to vote for what statues erected and those who disagree with the way that the polish the statue was taken down and try to change in the exact language you think you might individually like the piece what we've seen in bristol to see that the 1st that she was taken down that started all of these things overall people are happy the statue was gone there should have been a debate about it just to put out there but in just one push that should do i want to know. what the latest on the state of the law has been taken there to put in the reason the city's mayor says there needs to be
4:11 am
a democratic process for the people of bristol to decide the future of the planes party co-founder catherine blakelock told us people taking it upon themselves to install the statue so it's a dangerous president. it's an anti democrats i think those thoughts that they didn't apply for planning commission and they. put it up in the middle of the night shows you see what this movement is about this movement isn't about that people still the people up if they really wanted to they could apply to have planning permission to put this out they didn't. the president that a few people can decide and that democracy does not matter anymore. russian media is facing resurgent me 2 chaps who are going to report next with a number of current and former journalists being accused of sexual harassment and other abuses so the story. it started with
