Chair, Royal Commission into Institutional Responses to Child Sexual Abuse
Sunday 17 December 2017
This guy reminds me of Ken Kosiorek from the US who claimed the sounds of the bells of the San Diego archdiocese back in 2010 - it was one of the funniest experiences this whole this brought me.http://www.theherald.com.au/story/5124862/royal-commission-shows-nobodys-above-the-law-survivor/
Ken rode his bike to the Cathedral on Sunday and mingled with the congregation weeping along with the and accepting their apologies - in response to their questions of how can they help him Ken would respond by saying that he was financially fine but it hurts him to see the homeless on the street in the precincts of the cathedral and asked if they would give $20 to each homeless person or vagrant in their neighbourhood. Thats when the excuses would start and they never did. Amazingly at the time (Traumatic memory says not amazing any longer today) he was able to go back in a fortnight or so and do it all over again. Kudos to Ken and thanks for the great ride (apologies to Paul Levey - the guy owned 2 top of the line BMW bikes and 5 or 6 desert racers ...

John Brown was born in Yea Victoria 3717 on 27 December, 1948. John grew up in Yea, he went to the Catholic school on The Parade and then a final year at Yea High. He undertook an apprenticeship as a Hand and Machine Compositor/Linotype Mechanic at the local newspaper The Yea Chronicle who recently declined to publish anything on John's story. He left Yea after realising that the proprietor and local policeman Bill Ellisson along with other local Catholics in Yea and surrounds at that time were aware of his abuse and of the rape and abuse of other children in Yea and were aware of the many unreported issues surrounding the murder of Herbert Henry Kemp of The Parade Yea in 1962 ...... read more
Investigation of an unsolved murder in 1962 can no longer be investigated according to police taskforce SANO because a pedophile Catholic clergyman who raped a child at age 8 is now dead. As a result of the dead rapist being unconnected with the murder Victorian police remain clueless.
Later in life John married in Toowoomba only to find that he was related to the then bishop of Toowoomba Bill Morris. Morris was the head of the bishops conference and was the go to person in the country for survivors of childhood sexual abuse by Catholic clergy and yet I was never able to get a time or a conversation with the bishop. I did get conversations or connection with a number of Catholic organisations with varying degrees of weirdness.
