Ben Clarke, Evil 8 paedophile group photographer has been released from prison after just 3 years !💥💥💥💥

Ben Clarke, Evil 8 paedophile group photographer has been released from prison after just 3 years !

When amateur photographer Ben Clarke advertised on Craig’s list for child models, the father of the 12 year old girl at the centre of the “Evil 8” paedophile child rape squad, responded and negotiated with Clarke to allow him to photograph his daughter both clothed and naked.

Along with pathetic cowards like Pastor David Volmer, Nicholas Beer, Ryan Clegg and the girl’s own father who raped the innocent child, Ben Clarke was also jailed as part of the Evil 8.

He negotiated with the girl’s father to photograph her in outfits he had bought from sex shops and then he distributed photos he had taken of her to others he had met online.

Clarke also sexually abused the young girl by masturbating over her as she lay on a bed. He would then go home and send the child abuse images to other pathetic cowards online and via USB.

Clarke was jailed after he pleaded guilty to 12 charges including indecently recording and dealing with a child and distributing child exploitation material between February and May 2014. Clarke was jailed in 2016, with the sentence backdated to July 2015.

Just weeks before Clarke’s sentence was due to expire, the Prisoners Review Board said he would be subject to a post sentence supervision order. The order was made for three key reasons, including ‘a prior criminal history of sexual offending which suggests a high risk of reoffending’.

Clarke is subject to a number of conditions, such as abiding by the Australian National Child Offender Register requirements which state that he should have ‘no unsupervised contact with children under 16 years of age other than your own children’.

In sentencing, Judge Simon Stone had said Clarke’s conduct was ‘reprehensible and disgusting’ and he had made a significant contribution to the father’s sexual exploitation of the girl.
Yet he still backdated all of his sentences and still gave him a sad pathetic excuse of a sentence.

As per usual we find out after the sentencing that this is not the first time Clarke has been found guilty of sexually abusing a child. Clarke had previously spent time in jail for abusing a 12-year-old girl in 1988.

Once again this proves the fact that child abusers cannot be rehabilitated, they simply just get better at hiding it ! They will never be able to be trusted around children… ever again ! Children are simply not safe around anyone who has been convicted of child sexual abuse, it is just not ever worth the risk.

Benjamin Simon Clarke was released by our prison board, he is a multiple time convicted child sexual abuser. He took pictures and videos of an innocent 12 year old girl while she was being abused and sent those images and footage to paedophiles worldwide. He even paid for the privilege.

There is nothing we can do about him being released, however there is something we can do to protect other children from him !

SHARE HIS FACE FAR AND WIDE !
LET EVERYONE KNOW WHAT THIS CHILD ABUSER LOOKS LIKE AND TO NEVER LET THEIR CHILDREN NEAR HIM!

You are the Victim be Kind to you 💥💥💥

Survivors of child abuse need to know that it was not their fault, they did not deserve it and the shame belongs to their abusers not to them !

The future lies in our children – all of our children – even (or especially?) the abused ones.

As a survivor of abuse myself, and the mother of abused children, as someone who has spoken to countless survivors and studied the research and statistics, I strongly believe that the way to end child abuse lies in how we deal with those who have been abused. That is one big reason why I am so very proud to be a part of the FACAA team.

All too often, children who suffer any form of abuse, be it neglect, psychological, physical, emotional or sexual, feel that they have somehow deserved that abuse. They take it all on board and internalise it in ways that will haunt them for many years. On top of that of course is the actual trauma itself and the reactions and ripple effects from that.

Many develop PTSD, Complex PTSD, drug and alcohol issues, depression, relationship and trust issues, self harming behaviours and suicidal ideologies to name a few of the problems faced.

We know from the research on Critical Incident Management used around the world for assisting first responders that PTSD can be avoided if the traumatic event is dealt with swiftly and carefully. Very often of course, disclosures are made many years after the abuse has taken place so in those cases it cannot be avoided and it cannot always be avoided in cases where the abuse is immediately evident either.

What can be done though, in each and every case, is to ensure that that child, or those children, are cared for comprehensively, respectfully and professionally as soon as practically possible. We need this to become common practice, right across the board, with every agency that deals with abused children. We need to let those kids know that it was never their fault, that they did not deserve to be treated that way, that the shame is not theirs and never was theirs.

Taking the abuser or the child away is never enough. Telling the child things like “It’s over now”or “just try to forget about it” can actually do more harm in some ways, making them feel that it is not okay to keep thinking or talking about what has happened to them.

We need to be ready to hear them, to validate them, to care for them, to nurture and support them – right from the very beginning for as long as they need us.

If we can do that, we will be a lot closer to ending not only abuse but many of the problems faced by communities across Australia. Our future is in our hands, as are our children. We need to step up and shoulder that responsibility before it is too late.

Please note – this post is not in any way meant to imply that all people who have been abused will develop mental health, drug and alcohol, or other problems and it is not intended to offend anyone. I am simply talking about what we know for a fact becomes the reality for a large percentage of survivors (GE)

Beautiful after all Broken Diamond. This is your story💥💥💥💥💥💥💥💥💥💥💥💥

We are more beautiful for having been broken,

I was in a workshop the other day where a clinical psychologist was talking about Post Traumatic Growth (PTG) and showed this picture of a broken bowl, repaired with gold or silver lacquer, called Kintsukuroi.
The idea is the piece is more beautiful for having been broken. I thought this was such a beautiful idea.

In the world of personal development there is a constant quest for “fixing” the broken pieces of ourselves in order to move on from the past, heal the hurts and become a better version of ourselves than before.

Sometimes we get lost in the “broken-ness” that we are experiencing at the time, viewing it as a bad thing. In that state of mind it’s easy to get stuck in the poor me-ness of it all and play the victim. But with this understanding that we are more beautiful for having been broken, it can be easier for us to just allow those awful feelings, acknowledge and accept them, and know that we will come out the other end with more learning and growth, a better understanding of who we are – whenever that might be.

If you’re reading this while you’re going through a really crappy time I know this probably sounds simplistic, but there is always a choice and we can choose whether we let our circumstances halt our growth or let it turn us into a beautiful butterfly after a period of integration.

We also need to know that we don’t need to always focus on “fixing” ourselves. It’s a lesson for some of us to just be – be patient, rest, allow ourselves to process what’s happening, and know that we are amazing just as we are – especially when we have been through a lot. After all, I have never met a spectacular person who hasn’t gone through a whole load of pain in their lives, along with a period of thinking “why the heck is this happening to me.”
(CE)

You are amazing just as you are, you are beautiful, you are valued and you are worthy.

Gordon Lloyd Adams has been convicted of 6 child sex offences including the rape of a 9 year old girl.😥😓

Gordon Lloyd Adams has been convicted of 6 child sex offences including the rape of a 9 year old girl. He is eligible for parole in 2020 !

Sadly this “model citizen” who was nominated for Gympie’s Senior citizen of the year due to his work with the local Salvation Army and the local RFS was hiding a very darkside the entire time he was working for the Salvation Army.

The Brisbane local court handed him 6 and a half years behind bars after he pleaded guilty to 6 counts of child sexual assault including a rape of a 9-year-old girl. Funny thing is he claimed he didn’t remember committing the sexual assaults due to a stroke that occurred in 2002.

Thankfully Judge Paul Smith saw through the whole lack of memory excuse and sentenced him to prison time. He did try the whole “model citizen” act which makes us at FACAA physically ill, because the fact is it doesn’t matter how much work he did for the Salvos, the entire time he was a child rapist.

CHILD RAPISTS ARE NOT PEOPLE OF GOOD CHARACTER !

The court heard from the victim of the rape who is now an adult herself, she spoke of how her entire life had been thrown upside down. She spoke of battling major mental health issues and drug and alcohol dependency issues.

“He took from me my childhood” – “I sense that people will think I am dirty and worthless because of what happened to me” – she read in her victim’s impact statement.

To make matters worse this isn’t Adam’s first offence. He was charged with carnal knowledge earlier in his life. Which does raise the question why was he allowed to volunteer for the Salvation army ?

In sentencing Judge Paul Smith said that despite Gordon’s good character and contribution to the community (all of which are null and voided by the fact he is a child rapist) the seriousness of the crime demanded a custodial sentence.

“It is clear that the offending had a significant affect on the victim” “she was vulnerable and there is a clear breach of trust here” – Judge Smith said.

Somehow he will be eligible for parole in March of 2020. Clearly he got the full 30% reduction for a guilty plea.

The people of Deception Bay QLD can at least have a couple of years knowing this child rapist is not among them, sadly due to the nature of child rapist sentencing and this judge being such a big fan of this child rapist’s good deeds for the Salvation army, he has received a typically pathetic sentence.

Gordon Lloyd Adams, we at FACAA do not buy the whole “model citizen” lie you have made so many believe. You are a multiple time child rapist and child sex offender, as such, you should never again be trusted around children!

“(The mother) was to vacate the bedroom every night for a week in order for the complainant to enter the bedroom and enable (the father) to do what he wanted to do”. 🕶

A “mother” who swapped beds with her daughter so her “father” could rape her, has been given 4 months behind bars.
Seems like a pathetic sentence for facilitating and allowing such a heinous hideous crime, that’s because it is. The official sentence was 2 years suspended after 4 months. It seems pathetic because it truly is !

A brave survivor has spoken to the Townsville Bulletin about the repulsive breach of trust that saw her sexually abused hundreds of times as a child. Her mother, now aged 72, has been jailed after pleading guilty in Townsville District Court to incest and permitting the abuse of a child under 16 on premises.

Judge John Coker said, as a child the victim was subjected to “abuse of a sexual nature in every manner that could possibly be imagined”. Police prosecutor Andrew Walklate said the mother knowingly allowed her husband to sexually abuse their daughter when she was aged between 10 and 16.

6 Years of horrendous incestuous child rape at it’s absolute worst and she gets 4 months… Judge John Coker, surely you could have handed down a much worse sentence than 4 petty months.

Why on earth would you send such a clear message that this woman’s pain, and the pain of survivor’s of incest and child rape everywhere, means so very little to our legal system.

In this case especially, I simply refuse to use the words “Justice system” because we simply do not have anything like a justice system. We have a legal system, a system in place to legally protect the laws and the accumulation of money and things.
Children sadly are not valued very highly in this system.

Police prosecutor Andrew Walklate said the charge of incest related to a particular week when the mother entered an agreement with the father which saw her swap beds with her daughter to allow him to “get it out of his system”.

“For about a week when the complainant was about 15 years old the defendant swapped bedrooms with the complainant … that was in order to facilitate the sexual activity taking place,” Mr Walklate said.

“(The mother) was to vacate the bedroom every night for a week in order for the complainant to enter the bedroom and enable (the father) to do what he wanted to do”.

“The complainant would walk past the defendant in the hallway as she was carrying her pillow.”

Imagine walking down a hallway and seeing your mother walking in the opposite direction with her pillow in hand, being fully aware of what was about to happen to you and knowing she was not going to help you.. she was too busy helping the monster commit his horrific acts. That poor girl….

Mr Walklate said the mother had become aware of the offending years earlier and had discussed the abuse with her daughter and husband on many occasions. The victim, now a mother in her own right, bravely voiced her victim impact statement in court. She said it had taken her years to fully comprehend what had happened to her and begin the healing process.

“My parents were supposed to be the ones who cared for and protected me, not the ones who abused me,” the victim said.

“Your role was to be the one who stood up and protected me.
Your non-actions were as harmful as his actions.”

Barrister Scott Geeves, representing the mother, said his client had a great deal of remorse for what had happened to her daughter. He said the woman had never been in trouble with the law and was a valued member of the community.

I hate to be the bearer of bad news Mr Geeves, but whatever someone has done, or not done, before they abuse a child (or in this case directly assist the repeated rape of a child), is completely irrelevant. The fact is, the very moment they hurt that child through action or inaction they are then and forever will be a child abuser.

A child abuser is not a valued member of any community. They may pretend to be an upstanding citizen but anyone who can rape their own child, or facilitate the rape of their child, is someone with a despicable character and nothing they may have done or achieved in the past makes their actions any less heinous….

A child abuser is NOT a person of good character!

Mr Geeves you say your client was remorseful for her crimes, for exactly which crimes was she remorseful?
Was it for the years she knew her husband was raping their child and she chose to do nothing ?

Or was she remorseful for the times she literally gave up her bed so he could rape her ?

If she had any remorse what so ever she would have done something about it, she knew full well what was going on and still she helped this disgusting predator rape and defile their precious child.

Please Don’t talk of remorse and then talk of 6 years and hundreds of instances of child rape because it simply does not fly.

Eventually the “mother” went to her own parents for help in the situation, it only took her 6 years to do so, wonder what set her off and made her finally do the right thing. Too bad it was way too little, way too late.

Good on the child’s grandfather for stepping in and doing the right thing as soon as he heard about it. Well done Sir, good to see the girl had someone looking out for her. Kudos sir !

There is no excuse for this.. parents…those who are supposed to love, protect and nurture their children above all else, they both deserve harsh sentences.

Judge Coker took the woman’s age, lack of criminal history and his certainty that she would not reoffend into account when he sentenced her to two years imprisonment, to be suspended after four months.

Judge Coker you could have sent a clear message that those who help child abusers are just as guilty as the abusers themselves, you could have said that they will face the fullest extent of the law. Instead you set yet another pathetic precedent. Poor form Judge, child abuse survivors everywhere have felt the sting of the slap in the face you just hit them with.
