MT - Rewind To Fast-Forward

Rewind To Fast-Forward
Original Article

As long as it's honest and deals with facts and not fear mongering, exploitation and grand standing, then we are all for it.

By Sasha Joseph Neulinger

Director Sasha Joseph Neulinger spent his childhood in front of a camera. His father Henry, also a documentary filmmaker, shot over two hundred hours of home video capturing every aspect of Sasha’s young life. But within the footage of birthday parties, family trips, and hockey games, something dark was hidden. Sasha revisits his father’s videos and the painful secret of his early years—a secret that would shift the course of his life.

Between the ages of three and seven, Sasha was sexually abused by two of his uncles and one male cousin. After Sasha came forward and spoke up about the abuse, his father Henry shared a secret of his own. Henry’s brothers, the same men who had abused Sasha, had also abused Henry as a boy. Sasha spent a decade entangled in the criminal justice system—and struggling to find his identity in the aftermath of his stolen childhood. This autobiographical film will unearth a historical case of multigenerational sexual abuse and by doing so, it will also give intimate and inspiring insight into one survivor’s healing process.

From the Director

In my first feature length documentary, I will share my experience of overcoming child sexual abuse, a journey from victim to survivor. My goal is to shed light on what it is to be a child abuse victim—from the first moment of abuse, through the process of reclaiming and rebalancing life. I want to expose the causes underlying the destructive multigenerational cycle of child abuse in my own family. And I hope that as I share my story as a case study, we can have a more open conversation about the importance of an uninterrupted healing process for child victims and reduce the numbers of children who are abused.

Nah, it's going to be more of the same lousy propaganda that gets put out every year. Kid was molested by his uncles as a kid, now thinks he's an expert on all things sex abuse related. It says:

"1 in 4 girls and 1 in 6 boys will be sexually abused by the age of 18."

Total nonsense. We're really suppose to believe that 25% of women were sexually abused as children? What drugs are people on to believe this crap?

Then it links to the national sex offender registry for a bunch more bogus statistics.

It'll be mostly about his ego and the terrible abuse he "survived" against the "monsters." Probably like a longer Oprah episode.

Okay i maybe wrong...but why was he not charged with something for sending his son over to find out if the mother was going to report him?. Must because he is a cop. Must police departments would have added some kind of charge for that

"Sexual predators and offenders will also have to provide law enforcement
agencies with any Internet usernames they use, as well as information
about their passports, immigration status, professional licenses and all
vehicles registered at their address, including those of friends and
relatives, when they register as sex offenders"

friends and families???...this would literally make friends and family registrants too...the innocent have to be registered now...

Democracies are a pipe dream...
The idea of all the people working together to a common goal for the betterment of all is a wonderful concept. However, it simply can't happen when the power rests in the hands of the few and they no longer feel that they have to answer to anybody beneath them...
Even at the outset it was less than likely to take up arms against the government (a provision in the Constitution, I believe) because power tends to protect itself and it's own...

On another note, the last few lines of this letter are reminiscent of "The Screwtape Letters" by C.S. Lewis...
The government isn't playing the devil...
The leaders and lawmakers aren't demons...
However, are simply, imperfect, corruptible (and corrupted) humans that have few to answer to but others of a like mind that believe they know what is best and anybody who disagrees is the enemy...
Authority is of God, power is of the devil...

Floriduh is without a doubt the dumbest state in the USA and it just keeps getting dumber! It's won Derek's Shittake Awards like three years in a row now and looks like it's going to win it again!

You want to make it the best place to raise a family? LMAO! That's gonna take a lot of work and you aint doing it! We should just give it back to Mexico, tell them we don't want it anymore but they probably won't want it either.



Damn.

Wow, Matt...You sound bitter.

Ya, totally confused about this "friends and family" deal??? So...the FDLE(State Police) will have to write regulation determining "when" some one becomes a "friend"???? So if an offender a year from now, randomly sits with the same dude in the lunch room at work and chats, FDLE will claim he's a "friend" and you better ask him for his vehicle info????? Suppose a friend of 20 years decides he hates you one day and you dissolve the friendship, how does the offender prove to the Sheriff's Office he's no longer buddies with "Tom Smith" and take his car info off the registry???
If you live in Orlando and you have a great aunt in Seattle..3000 miles away, and you have not seen her in 22 years, is the offender supposed to try and contact her somehow and Demand she gives up the make and model and license plate of her car in Seattle to the Florida police??? Confusing!! What if the out of state relations "refuse" to turn over their car info to the cops in Florida????


The cops do not have the $$$$ or the manpower to chase down this kind of crap in perpetuity!! So now we will have Florida police determining at what point some one legally becomes a "Friend" of an offender???? Please tell me how this they plan on doing this!!

You know the sex offender can rant and rave all he wants but truth is truth and Government doesn't have the truth in them.
They cover all this up in the name of public safety. Even deception is in the name of public safety.
Now all mankind has the nature of the beast and a beast wants to devour others. Some people follow the golden rule and have compassion for their fellow man and neighbors.
Government has none when they deceive people with their cover ups, burdensome rules, cunning tactic's such as posing as a teen on an adult website to entrap otherwise law abiding citizens. They have condemned themselves.
The key word up there is nature and nothing can stop nature, if its going to happen its going to happen, Just like floods, hurricanes, earthquakes.
Human man or Government can not stop it with all their toys they have or any mean's at their disposal.
But for the sex offender they put the mark of the beast on all of us involved in this and we don't even understand it. I don't even think they understand what they do.
A murderer is far better than the sex offender.
Is this a form of discrimination, sure it is when one can't get a job because of being labeled as a sex offender, and than people would rather believe a lie than the truth.
So the sex offender is scum to society since we are outcasts because of our offense.
You know Adam and Eve were already naked in the Garden of Eden. but when they eat the apple they were naked from God's protection.
I guess we are naked from protection and vulnerable to society for the rest of our lives.
What a shame we live in a God less country like this with Government such as this that are above the Creator. Where is God in Government.

I said it before: Authority is from God, Power is not...
In the case of government, the responsibility that goes with authority is completely overlooked. Authority without responsibility is power...
Power misused is one of the many failings of mankind...
