Former Marist Brother Darcy John O’Sullivan an unrepentant child molester has had 8 years added onto his sentence after he tried for a reduction because someone hit him with a loaf of bread.

Former Marist Brother Darcy John O’Sullivan an unrepentant child molester has had 8 years added onto his sentence after he tried for a reduction because someone hit him with a loaf of bread.

Oh wow do I wish we were making this stuff up, but seriously…. this completely unrepentant child molester (he honestly told the court that it was HE who was the victim), tried to get a reduction in his sentence because he claimed that being hit in the head with a loaf of bread was a “vision of things to come,” referring to being assaulted by other inmates. IT WAS A LOAF OF BREAD !

Fortunately, sanity for once prevailed and instead of a reduction, he had 8 years ADDED to his 6 year sentence because more of his victims were found in between trials !
Talk about a major backfire and mis-calculation by him and his legal team !

A paedophile priest who sexually abused 27 young boys has had his appeal for a shorter sentence rejected after claiming he deserved one because he was hit with a loaf of bread in prison. Former New South Wales Marist Brother Darcy John O’Sullivan, 80, was jailed for six years in 2016 for 22 historic child sex offences between 1971 and 1983.

O’Sullivan has always maintained that he is the true victim and told the court he feared for his safety in jail because he had already been ‘assaulted’. He alleged another inmate had hit him in the head with a loaf of bread and argued it was an indication of the future he faces in prison.

What an absolute abhorrent joke of a man you are Darcy, to sexually assault so many students, like you did, and then claim to be the victim….are you for real?

We couldn’t be happier that your sentence was increased, in fact more than doubled Your total lack of remorse for your crimes or empathy for your survivors should have been enough to put you behind for the rest of your natural life !

However in the Sydney District Court Judge Kate Traill not only rejected his appeal but added another eight years to his sentence after more offences were uncovered. Judge Traill told the court O’Sullivan exhibited no remorse, no empathy for his victims, and ‘no insight into his offending.
(He) shows a total lack of understanding of the magnitude of his predatory offending,’ she said.

O’Sullivan pleaded guilty in 2016 to the charges of child sex crimes against 12 students from the Marist Brothers College in Hamilton and at the St Marys High School in Casino. However he contradicted his initial guilty plea during his most recent trial date.

‘I absolutely deny to this court, to her honour, that I have ever indulged in that sort of behaviour in all of my life,’ O’Sullivan told the court. But O’Sullivan also detailed times he had ‘fondled boys genitalia’ inside the classroom, the school halls and the playground.

He described his actions as ‘ showing a paternal interest’ and being ‘in a kind of semi-affectionate manner to a number of my students….. Right there we have the problem with child molesters and rapists, they cannot be rehabilitated because they simply do not see what they are doing as being a problem, let alone a crime ! Child abusers see what they do to children as “affection” or “love” but let me tell you outright once and for all. WHAT THEY DO TO CHILDREN DESTROYS THEM, YOU DO NOT DESTROY SOMETHING YOU CLAIM TO LOVE ! LOVE HAS ABSOLUTELY NOTHING TO DO WITH THIS, CHILD ABUSERS DO NOT LOVE THEIR VICTIMS THEY SEEK TO DOMINATE AND DESTROY THEM.

Judge Traill imposed the extra eight years on his sentence after his crimes against a further 15 students were detailed.

O’Sullivan denied to the court that he had any sexual attraction to boys and said he gained no sexual gratification from his actions. ‘I know and understand my own sexuality. I know when I’ve been physically attracted to women. I know when I’ve been in love with women. That doesn’t make me someone as you describe,’ he said.

He won’t even admit he has done anything at all, let alone done anything wrong. What possible hope is there for him and his kind to be rehabilitated. Child abusers can NOT be rehabilitated and anyone telling you they can has a very big vested interest (such as getting paid to provide these programs) in providing that so called “rehabilitation.”

O’Sullivan did not garner sympathy from Judge Traill for being hit in the head with a loaf of bread, an incident she described as ‘relatively minor’. After the court ruling the Facebook page for the Marist Brothers College in Hamilton posted a status condemning their abuse.

‘To the brothers of Hamilton Marist Brothers high school, I have a question … ‘Why’,’ the status read. ‘Why were some (of) you such b******* to us kids and such hypocrites in what you were supposed to be standing for in the Catholic Church system?’ …. Why indeed!

Darcy John O’Sullivan thank you for proving our point that child sex abusers (which is what you are, if you want to admit it or not) can NEVER be rehabilitated. You have no remorse you don’t even think you’ve committed a crime… in fact you believe that it is YOU who is the victim.

We thank you for being arrogant enough to believe that you deserved time off for being “assaulted” with a loaf of bread. If you hadn’t been so entitled and arrogant then your sentence may have remained at 6 years and not the 14 years which it now is….

Our thoughts remain with your survivors who suffered at your filthy hands and went on to struggle with the pain and trauma of being sexually abused by someone in a position of power, someone seemingly above reproach and all that entails.

We hope this sentence helps to vindicate you all and that it empowers you to know we believe you and we are very sorry for the pain you suffered due to the actions of this sick pervert. Everyone now knows exactly what he is and what he did to you innocent children.
We hope you all find peace.

When anxiety speaks to us we have to realize that it says nothing but lies !

Survivors of child abuse are all too often plagued by anxiety and depression, our abusers groom us deliberately isolating us from our support networks, by the time the trauma is over we are left with lifelong battles against depression and the horrendous lies of anxiety.

So what is anxiety exactly ? According to anxietycentre.com it is,

Anxiety is defined as:

A state of uneasiness, apprehension; as about future uncertainties. A state of apprehension, uncertainty, and fear resulting from anticipation of a realistic or fantasized threatening event or situation, often impairing physical and psychological functioning.

In other words, anxiety occurs when we behave (think and act) in an apprehensive manner, such as when worrying about an event or situation. With this in mind, anxiety is not a force or ‘thing’ in itself. It’s a state of uneasiness that results when we worry. More about this in a moment.
Because imagining the future in an apprehensive manner is a behavior, it’s not caused by a biological, chemical, or genetic problem with the brain. Anxiety results from a certain style of behavior.

That’s the technical definition of it, to me anxiety is that constant lying bastard that tells you that you’re not and never will be good enough for anything that you deserve or even already have.

One example is the a few years ago my former boss messaged me and said “can you call me please, but wait until you get to work” ….. I spent about an hour obsessing over if I should call him or wait until I got to work but I wanted to call because I was convinced he was furious with me for some reason, so I rang him and he rejected the call. Of course in my head it was because he was so angry with me he couldn’t possibly speak to me. So I spent the next hour obsessing over what I could have done to make him so mad that he would reject my call.

As it turns out he rejected my call because he was on the phone to his boss discussing giving me a pay rise, when I got to work he needed me to call him because he was at home on a conference call with his boss discussing my pay rise and new responsibilities and I had to get the orders done for him as well as my job while he was on the conference call.

If I had listened to my anxieties I would have lost my job because I would have pestered my boss to the point of actually making him furious.

This is another insidious way that survivors can destroy their ability to live up to their potential, self sabotage is all too common among survivors of child abuse. A lot of this self sabotage is due to the fact we listen to our anxieties rather than realizing them to be the lying bastards they actually are.

It’s not easy, but when anxiety whispers or even yells, we have to realize that what it is saying is not reality, or even based in reality. We have to realize that it is another symptom of our survival and as such should not be listened to or acted upon.

The toughest part is differentiating between our anxieties and depressive thoughts and reality, we need mechanisms to spot the difference and know which one to act upon and which one to ignore. Doing this can mean the difference between success and failure in a lot of circumstances, it can be the difference between being held back and striving forward in life.

Sadly I don’t have a definitive answer as to how to learn to spot the difference, for me it’s been a series of trial and error as I am a big fan of my gut instincts but even they can all too often be tainted by my depression and anxieties.

I recommend critical (but not too critical) self analysis and being open and honest with loved ones and partners so when you self sabotage your relationships with them they can see it for what it is and hopefully be patient enough to help guide you through it and recognize it as anxiety and depression guiding you down a false path rather than your actual thoughts and feelings.

Learn to recognize when depression and anxiety are settling in and find activities that can break you out of that funk. I use martial arts and fitness, body work is very important to get you moving, release positive endorphins and flood your system with dopamine and adrenaline. Both of which can break depression and fight off anxiety.

If martial arts or fitness aren’t your thing consider a hike in the bush, Australia has some of the best bush in the world. Plan a good hike, take a friend or loved one and just go, take your phones (for gps) and plenty of water and enjoy 😊

A very dear friend of mine uses dance, she literally shakes it off and that works for her and works wonders. Whatever works for you find it and smash it ! Do whatever it takes to fight off the depression and anxiety and don’t let them get hold of you.

Anxiety can whisper or it can yell, but one thing is for sure it is very good at holding us back, making us believe bad things are sure to happen. It leads us to the kind of self talk that sabotages us and our ability to reach our well deserved potential.

Find what works for you, counseling is always a good place to start, anything healthy and positive that helps you to gain control of your thoughts, and helps you to stop your anxieties from taking over is worth pursuing.

We know it isn’t easy, but it is possible. You are worthy and you do deserve the best of everything this life has to offer !
