Retired for the night after hearing child custody and their protection in the home and in the society.rattle pretty words on a PLP platform last Thursday evening, I listened to the rebroadcast of a talk show which engaged a discussion with two discussing
I enjoyed the discussion as finally I said to myself someone has decided to find a voice for the innocent children being molested all over this country. My thoughts being guided to a particular young girl at the once prestigious Queen’s College School, where the Minister of Education’s son raped her and walked away from the crime “scott-free”.
However, my attentiveness to the programme was jolted, when suddenly the host of the show began ranting about Bahamians websites who, “post sexual acts of young children” and defame and malign the names of public persons online. The host had serious concerns about this and went on a tirade of venomous remarks against such new media outlets.
The host vented and ranted with such passion about these websites, until one of the social workers joined in the attack and suggested that persons who engage in such acts have violated the laws of the country, AND have destroyed the young children presented in such clips.
Bahamas Press [although our website name was never mentioned] is quite aware that some persons, particularly many persons who are members of the media in this town [because their ‘disorder’ prohibits their practise in any other profession] has grave difficulty reading truth.
Let us first begin by stating that NO, WE DO NOT PROMOTE OR CONDONE THE PUBLISHING OF SEXUALLY EXPLICIT ONLINE MATERIAL, ADULT NOR UNDERAGE!
But yes, Bahamas Press did publish a video clip with two minors from the Doris Johnson High School having sex in a Bahamian classroom.
We published the footage, hiding the identity of the minors, to avoid them being exposed. However, our editorial decision was made after the Minister of Education’s office [ just days after Bethel’s now 18 year old son had raped a 13 year old girl on the campus of Queen’s College] denied such acts of rape occurring at schools throughout The Bahamas!
An officer of the law [right here in The Bahamas] sent to this website several video clips of children in school uniform, here in The Bahamas having sex. And to our surprise we were SHOCKED! Parents in this country, would withdraw their kids from public and private schools here in country if they saw what we had seen.
Bahamas Press however is amazed that the host of the show found our content disturbing, but equally could not see the cover up by the Minister of National Security, Acting , the Principal at Queen’s College and the panel of persons [which also included the wives of Zhivargo ‘Crybaby Sour’ Laing and Tommy Turnquest] as equally disgusting. NOT A SINGLE WORD WAS MENTIONED ON THE SHOW ABOUT THE QUEEN’S COLLEGE RAPE COVER UP, WHICH OCCURRED THIS PAST SPRING.
Perhaps the host and his social workers should read again the laws, which are applied to persons who cover up such incidents of rape of a minor. The law is clear against those who cover up RAPE INCIDENTS. THEY ARE AS GUILTY AS THE RAPIST!
So let it be made clear, Bahamas Press made our point against the COVER UP and CORRUPTION in our system! And like the hundreds of little young girls at Queen’s College, we ask, where is the protection by that administration?
The next time that host of that show decides to attack websites in this country “Legitimate Ones” someone please tell him gather his facts and “TAKE HIS PILLS” before he gets readmitted to Sandilands for hyperventilating over nothing.
