Orthodox sex abuse scandal – 117 kid victims and 85 arrests in Jewish enclave

….Andrew Goodman, 27, who worked for Jewish social-service agencies, is charged with sexually abusing two Orthodox boys for years in Flatbush — one from age 11 to 15, the other from age 13 to 16.
Goodman filmed sex acts with the youngsters on a Web cam, according to the 144-count indictment, which alleges numerous violations since 2006. He has pleaded not guilty.
The handsome Goodman, who held parties in his home with liquor and child porn, also “threatened the life” of a boy who reported him to authorities, court papers and sources say.
He’s one of an astounding 85 accused Orthodox child molesters that Brooklyn District Attorney Charles Hynes’ office says it has busted in the past three years in an initiative called Kol Tzedek, Hebrew for “voice of justice.”
The cases involve 117 victims — a number that has the community reeling from the extent of the horrors of pedophilia….
Of the 38 cases closed so far, 14 perps got jail time, ranging from a month to 10-to-20 years for crimes that included sex abuse, attempted kidnapping, and sodomy, Jaus said….
In court papers obtained by The Post, the boy’s pediatrician said the sustained sexual and emotional trauma had “robbed him of his youth.”
The child suffers symptoms of post-traumatic stress disorder and depression. Once “vibrant and energetic,” the doctor said, “that boy is no more.” The abuse “destroyed him.”

When I stayed at River Oaks Psychiatric Hospital in Metarie (New Orleans), LA, Mark Schwartz was there as a therapist, as was his wife at the time. My memories of abuse came to me long before I even got to River Oaks, and I only had contact with him on a few group sessions. The treatment I received from the staff and therapist I was assigned to, were highly respectful, helpful and compassionate. I did a huge amount of healing work at that time. I truly can say that my work with the people who were directly supervised by Mark Schwartz, was positive. Hypnosis wasn’t used, but journaling was.
I’m grateful that my experience there lead me to greater healing. There were a number of therapies used at River Oaks, such as music therapy, art, guided meditations, and movement therapy, as well as 12-Step programs.
The recent articles about Dr. Schwartz damage not only his reputation as a therapist, but it puts doubt in the minds of the general public about the existence of multiple personality disorder, satanic ritual abuse, and mind control.
I am a survivor of all three and the healing process has made me more sane than most people I know. I’m aware that there are non-believers, who would like to bash any information on this topic, but the huge numbers of survivors who weren’t part of Schwartz’ therapy, would prove that these phenomena are real and present in our society’s past and present. If left uninvestigated and bashed, more victims will succumb to the harsh realities of our general inhumanity to children.
For those who would read articles about Dr. Schwartz and have doubts about the existence of MPD, Satanic Ritual Abuse (SRA) or mind control, I’d suggest that you do further research, visit http://ritualabuse.us and http://dejoly.com
