Children Sexy (454) Mp4

No one has to be a parent to understand this because as adults, we were all children once. How would you feel if your father (or any caretaker) had nude pictures plastered all over the internet, in a highly vulnerable and humiliating position where sex and drugs were involved? What would you need from your caretaker and what kind of compassion would you like from the public? Would you not need your father present in a way in which they solely focus on protecting, loving and nurturing you from this point on? And would you not need the public to empathize with you the child by allowing your father to fade to black without trying to calculate his next political move or assign some other inconsequential task to him?

If Andrew emerged later on when his children are much older (possibly even grown) when they are less vulnerable and susceptible, he would have a much more meaningful and respectful narrative to shape and give to the public (the priority of his family first), versus trying to manipulate some shallow, selfish agenda that everyone will end up picking apart anyway.

Papua New Guinea's serious crime problem is being metwith a violent police response. Children, who make up nearly half of thecountry's some 5.6 million people, are especially vulnerable. The experience ofSteven E. reflects that of many children at the hands of the Royal Papua NewGuinea Constabulary, the country's police force. Brutal beatings, rape, andtorture of children, as well as confinement in sordid police lockup, arewidespread police practices. Although even high level government officialsacknowledge this, almost nothing has been done to stop it.

The vast majority of children who are arrested are severelybeaten and often tortured by members of the police. Almost everyone HumanRights Watch interviewed in each area we visited who had been arrested wasbeaten. Children reported being kicked and beaten by gun butts, crowbars ("pinsbars"), wooden batons, fists, rubber hoses, and chairs. Boys described beingshot and knifed while in custody. Girls told us that they had been forced tochew and swallow condoms. Many of those we interviewed showed us fresh woundsand scars on their heads, faces, arms, legs, and torsos that they said werefrom police. Serious injuries to the face, particularly around the eyes, werecommon.

According to victims and eyewitnesses, police typically beatindividuals at the moment of arrest, during the time they are transported tothe station, and often at the station itself. Beatings are so routine thatpolice make little or no attempt to hide them, beating children in front of thegeneral public and international observers. A man who said police beat him andforced him to fight naked with other detainees in a police station when he wassixteen or seventeen years old noted: "We thought it was their job and we justhad to accept it." Although police violence is endemic and adults describedsimilar experiences, children's particular vulnerability and the assumptionthat boys and young men are "raskols"-members of criminal gangs-make childrenespecially easy targets.

Many of the abuses the children recounted rise to the levelof torture.Under international law,torture consists of intentional acts by public officials that cause severephysical or mental pain or suffering for the purpose of obtaining informationor a confession, or for punishment, intimidation, or discrimination. We heardaccounts in which police intentionally inflicted severe pain and suffering,apparently motivated by the desire to punish those suspected of wrongdoing.Boys perceived to be part of raskol gangs are often targeted for abuse. Policesimilarly target street vendors, sex workers, and boys and men who engage inhomosexual conduct. (In Papua New Guinea, it is illegal to "live. . . onthe earnings of prostitution"; sodomy, and, in some places, selling on thestreet are also illegal.) In other cases, police use violence to obtainconfessions. For instance, we interviewed children whom police had burned, cut,whipped while naked, and humiliated during their interrogations in order tocoerce them to confess to a crime.

At police stations, many children are detained for weeks ormonths in squalid conditions that violate basic international standards. Mostsaid that police provided them with no medical care, even when seriouslyinjured. In addition, children are routinely mixed with adults in policelockup, where boys are at increased risk of sexual assault at the hands ofolder detainees. We found boys under the age of eighteen held together withadult detainees in nearly everypolice lockup we visited. In several of these police stations, separate cellswere available but were being used for adults. In some stations, childrenlacked bedding and sufficient food and water.

Police abuse of children and members of marginalized groups,including rape and other crimes of sexual violence, is not only a problem inand of itself: it may also fuel Papua New Guinea's burgeoning AIDS epidemic.Experts believe that at least 80,000 people-almost 2 percent of the population,the highest rate in the South Pacific region-are living with HIV in Papua New Guinea.By 2010, experts predict, at least 13 percent of the population may beHIV-positive. AIDS has been the leading cause of death in Port Moresby GeneralHospitalsince mid-2001.

In 2003, the government, as a result of the efforts of theUnited Nations Children's Fund (UNICEF) and an interagency working group ofgovernment and civil society representatives, began to create a juvenilejustice system, as envisioned by the 1991 Juvenile Courts Act. As of May 2005,seven juvenile courts were operating in some capacity in seven locations in thecountry. In 2004 and the first half of 2005, policies for dealing withjuveniles were adopted for police, magistrates, and correctional officials.These policies severely limit the circumstances under which children can bedetained and require separation from adults. The challenge remains to implementthese policies. In April 2005, fifteen volunteer juvenile court officers werecommissioned to monitor police treatment of children in police stations, andthe police opened a single processing center intended for all children detainedin Port Moresby,the country's capital. These developments are significant and commendable.However, the next step-changes in how children are treated-had yet to be seenat the time of writing. A critical component-one not yet addressed-will beaccountability for police violence.

At present, there is almost no willingness on the part ofthe police to investigate or prosecute its members. With little or no penaltyfor violators, training for police has had little effect on violence againstchildren. Indeed, the causes of police violence appear to run far deeper thansimply a need for more training: they relate to a collapse of management anddiscipline throughout the force.

Government mechanisms external to the police that might holdpolice accountable and provide victims with redress-the public solicitor'soffice, the ombudsmen's commission, and civil claims against the state-have notbeen effective in diminishing police violence. The public solicitor's officelacks the resources to represent many children charged with crimes. Theombudsman's commission, while widely commended for taking on government corruption,has little capacity to investigate reports of police abuse. Despiteextraordinary costs to the state, civil claims for police violence fail toprovide adequate remedies for many victims because procedural barriers preventmany from pursuing legitimate claims. Where victims are able to bringsuccessful claims, the penalties imposed fail to deter police violence becausethey are borne by the state, not by the police force or individual officersthemselves. There are periodic initiatives to create a national human rightscommission, but these efforts have been stalled without reaching Parliament.Others in the justice system, such as judges, appear to ignore or accept policeviolence.

Papua New Guinea's international legal obligationsprohibit torture; cruel, inhuman, or degrading treatment or punishment; rape;and sexual assault. International law also requires that children be detainedonly as a measure of last resort, for the shortest appropriate period of time.When they are detained, children must be provided adequate medical care and beseparated from adults. In addition, the United Nations (U.N.) has developed aseries of principles and minimum rules on the use of force by law enforcementofficials and the detention of children that inform the interpretation ofcountry's obligations under international law. Papua New Guinea's law reflectsmany but not all of these principles.

Some authorities in Papua New Guinea are aware ofproblems in how the state treats children and have begun to introduceappropriate policy changes to reduce the rates of detention of children. Policeviolence, however, has not been addressed. The problem of police violence is soendemic, so institutionally engrained, that efforts to reduce it will notsucceed unless made part of widespread reforms and demanded from the highestlevels of government to the public.

Any serious effort to stop police violence, including severebeatings, rape, and torture of children, must include three key components:public repudiation of police violence by officials; criminal prosecution ofperpetrators; and ongoing, independent monitoring of police violence.Suggestions of immediate steps that Papua New Guinea authorities cantake in each area are outlined below.

Given the critical role of international donors,particularly Australia, infunding the police sector in Papua New Guinea,a serious effort to eradicate police violence against children in Papua New Guineawill require a far more active role on the part of the international community.Although not unaware of the problem, donors have not made a concerted effort ordevised a comprehensive strategy to assist in curbing police abuses againstchildren. To supplement existing efforts, international donors, including theAustralian government, should: 041b061a72
