I just watched a movie last night called Changeling. It came out a few years ago starring Angelina Jolie – a true story about a mother (Christine Collins) whose son was abducted in 1928. In a bizarre tale, the LAPD attempted to pull off a staged reunion with mother and son using a runaway child, who was not actually Walter Collins (Christine Collins’ son). The reason for the stunt was to bolster the image of the LAPD who were being called out on a constant basis for their extreme corruption and, therefore, had a warranted ‘image’ problem. They were not fighting crime but rather were the top dogs of organized crime in the city. They were a complete terror to the citizenry. So in a bizarre ruse, they presented Christine with a little boy and when she immediately said ‘This is not my son’, their response was to tell her that she was just an hysterical woman and the boy had changed over the 5 months that he had been missing. And insisting that she “take him home and try him out for awhile – she would soon see that indeed this was her son.”
Over the course of a few months she made repeated attempts to work with the police to explain the impossibility that this was her son and was desperate that they continue to look for Walter. They only dug their heels in further and the coverup began. Christine finally went to the press with her story and that’s when the LAPD had her thrown into a psych ward with no warrant, strictly on the lead investigator’s authority.
It’s here that I want to draw the reader’s attention. The act of institutionalizing someone troublesome to the system is not a new thing and continues to this day. Now, 80 years later, there is a massive case brewing in Scotland in which a brave mother, Anne Greig, has come forward with proof that her young daughter, Hollie Greig, who has downs syndrome had been repeatedly sexually assaulted by people in authority – her teachers, social workers, and yes the police chief was even identified – blowing the lid off of a major pedophile ring. Full details here: http://holliedemandsjustice.org/about_hollie_greig/
In an attempt to intimidate and make her go away, police charged into the hostel where Anne was staying, in front of multiple witnesses, threw her to the ground, pulled down her pants and injected her with antipsychotics and sedatives, and threw her in a psych ward. No warrant, just pure authoritarianism, like you’d expect to see in communist Russia – not a free country like the U.S. or Scotland, right? Thankfully, like Christine Collins, she was able to secure her own release after fighting to get second opinions (in other words, find a doctor who was not part of the coverup.)
Christine Collins continued to fight the system and she did achieve some pretty swift justice. The police chief and lead investigator were let go, the mayor ended up not even running for re-election and laws were changed requiring a warrant before citizens could be institutionalized. The citizens of L.A. were vociferous and the media covered the case in a truthful manner which I believe led to a speedy and just outcome.
However, Anne and Hollie Greig’s case is not meeting with the same support. Mainstream press won’t touch it – what a surprise. And the powers that be have grown quite sophisticated in their ability to malign and subvert the truth. But Anne and Hollie continue to stand their ground despite all efforts to discredit and silence them. And the atrocities they are attempting to uncover are horrific and admittedly hard to believe. But the evidence is there. The allegations involve, as stated earlier, teachers, social workers, doctors, and police. Hollie has named other victims who are actually children of the perpetrators! These children have not come forward for obvious reasons. What is going on with society???? Why are we systematizing these disgusting acts of violence against children??? How did these completely psychopathic individuals find their way into every avenue of the system?? The proverbial foxes have completely overrun the hen house. There is something very, very wrong here.
Please keep Anne and Hollie in your prayers and positive intentions. Pass their website on to friends and family. As a society, just being aware is the first step towards bringing an end to this type of evil. These are acts done in secret – once the secret is out – the stronghold is destroyed. We need to accept that evil DOES EXIST and there is a battle being waged of good and evil all around us. Denial that there is anything wrong will not fly anymore. As individuals, we need to make a personal stand to wake up and look underneath these rocks and expose the vermin. It’s not fun and it’s not pretty but it’s our responsibility!! And the day may come where a lot more of us are required to take a risk to stand up for what’s right.
