just so recently in solidarity with the protestors last month. making stand the statue of a black lives matter right this just briefly erected in the british city of bristol where a bronze to win a tory slave trader was toppled weeks ago but locals say they've got mixed feelings over it all. is good but like. i don't think personally i think it's the start you was a wreck he did he individually like the peace or should it be about it like you just pushed out should you want to know. good afternoon from russia live from artie's world new center here in moscow my name's kevin 0 in with the latest for you this afternoon 1st than in germany the stories coming in from vulnerable young boys have been placed in the foster care of paedophile men there

a damning study by hill this time university also says that 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 put in a position to protect the most vulnerable in society for 30 years starting in the 1970 s. berlin or thorazine placed 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 as spin 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 that we should have nothing

to do with them if we wanted to go anyway we were forbidden every day 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 worst 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 others were busy essentially being toyed with as part of an experiment so venerated psychologist helmet even after his death in 2010 was regarded as they found. he was an effective little more than a match maker putting neglected children into the care of predators. we learned about this experiment when doctor 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 berlin branch of the
5:04 am
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. and what particularly bothers us is that 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 limit. patients 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 experiments of told r.t. that there is no way his crimes were carried out without the welfare office being directly involved in germany was to care is the responsibility of the youth welfare offices still children and adolescents who leave and forced to homes always understate observation the things that occur in foster 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 kempler 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

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 of pushing for legal action today after having been failed by the authorities. the berlin senate is 100 percent involved the bird in senate initiated it and then tolerated it it's already been admitted verbal it but not legally from the very beginning the only thing that mattered to them was how to keep the problem small thing 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
5:07 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 was 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 assaulted where marchers met counter protesters on brooklyn bridge the officers were making an arrest when an identified man seen running towards the officers and then beating them with a k. the n.y.p.d. says 3 of its officers did sustain injuries including a police chief who only last month showed his solidarity with the protesters by
5:08 am
taking the knee. beautiful moment of calm there as chief terrance monaghan to be here at city police department in solidarity with protesters. a retired philadelphia police captain ray lewis told us he's worried these days that officers are no seen as the people's enemy by protesters. they're obviously much more concerned 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 a brutal and an enemy of the minority population the fact is these officers were attacked. unnecessarily what disappointed me with this is none of the other protesters even pushed this guy away took them to the ground
5:09 am
took his weapon you want to went 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 opportunities confront the lack of education for black people these are the things that go into these protests. and you start to briefly appeared on a plane in the english port city of bristol meantime we're just a few weeks ago the long standing monument to a slave trade there was unceremoniously thrown into the harbor the search of edward constables told them to the major anti-racism early last month it later was retrieved by the authorities and taken away is what went up than in its place on wednesday or be it briefly a statue of campaign gen reed recreating the moment that she stood on the plane for

after that rally and raised her fist in a black power salute it drew more than a few onlookers to here's what some of them thought about it. i think you said absolutely fantastic it's good for the people of bristol it's good for lives marked i think personally i think it should stay the statue was a wreck he did legally. and i think as a democracy we should be able to vote for what statues direct hits and all see disagree with the way that the college he's like she was taking down seats in exactly vandalism seats you 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 defeat about it just to put out there like you just let me push that should do i want to know generally. well say that new start she was mentioned was taken down and put in museum the city's mayor says there needs to be
5:11 am
a democratic process for the people of bristol to decide the future of the plant party co-founder catherine blakelock told us people taking it upon themselves to install a statue so it's a dangerous president though. it's antidemocratic i think the fact that they didn't apply for planning commission and they put. it to put it up in the middle of the night shows you actually what this movement is about this movement isn't about the people crystal the people up if they really wanted to they could apply to have planning permission to put this out they didn't it sets a precedent that a few people can decide and that democracy does not matter anymore. russian media is facing a resurgent me 2 chapters of the number of current and former journalist being accused of sexual harassment another abuses covering up today saskia taylor. it
