After Eight Days Deliberating the Jury Decides Rolf Harris is GUILTY!

I recovered this article about Rolf Harris from the hacked blog. Cliff Richard got away without facing a judge in a criminal trial, Harris didn’t and he spent time in prison.

Monday, June 30, 2014. Today, after eight days of deliberation the jury found Rolf Harris guilty of twelve counts of indecent assault against four girls aged between 7 and 19.

Count 1

While signing autographs in Hampshire in the late 1960s Harris touched a little girl inappropriately when she was just 7 or 8.

Count 2

Harris groped a teenage waitress’s bottom at a charity event in Cambridge in the 1970s

Counts 3 – 9 

A friend of Mr Harris’ daughter Bindi, said he repeatedly indecently assaulted her between the ages of 13 and 19

Counts 10 – 12

Tonya Lee, who has waived her right to anonymity, said he abused her three times on one day while she was on a theatre group trip to the UK. The Australian was 15 at the time.

At Southwark Crown Court on 4 July 2014, Mr Justice Sweeney sentenced Harris to a total of five years and nine months in prison. He served 3-years of his sentence and was presumably released for good behaviour. That couldn’t have been hard could it, after all, there are no girl-children in men’s prison.

A Crazed Dad Flogs His Daughters For Twerking

The original Facebook video that this story was based on has been removed. Greg Horn, the father discovered his two daughters had made a video of themselves twerking. Horn, a Christain, lost control and flogged his two daughters with an electric cable.

“A Dayton man has been indicted on charges of child endangering, corporal punishment after police said he beat his daughters. Police said Greg Horn, 35, is accused of whipping his daughters in the legs with a video cable that connected his TV to his DVD player. The alleged abuse happened at Horn’s home on Fotip Lane. According to the police report, one of the girls had visible welts on both legs in the thigh area with open wounds. The girls told police the beatings were their punishment for sneaking out of the house. The indictment comes this first week of Child Abuse Awareness Month.” – ABC22

Why this level of viciousness?

The girls’ mother reported him to the police. Their parents are separated. This story is not new, it happened in 2013, but I felt compelled to bring it to your attention. At the time the girls were aged 12 and 14. His name is Greg Horn, and this disturbing footage led to his arrest.

The religious nutcases who agree with him

A Google search about the case you will be astonished to read of the amount of support from Horn’s peers for disciplining those girls. To keep them on the straight and narrow requires love, not violence.

Yes, bible bashers believe he did right by following the Bible verse “Spare the rod, spoil the child”. Can you find that? Some religious whackos think the Bible phrase “spare the rod, spoil the child” means you can torture children. Some Christians have explained to me that “spare the rod” means spare the study of the Bible. I’m not so sure, however. I have never seen a lot of love in religious groups.

As an Atheist and I can see that what this father did to his kids is wrong.

Editor: This vicious assault brought back memories of my own childhood. I was raised in the Jehovah’s Witness cult, and corporal punishment was encouraged. Child abuse is rife in religious communities, including sexual assault, where they use scripture as the excuse for that abuse.
