Child Abuse Tolerance in Kenosha
Read the book, A Child Called
“It”, written by Dave
Pelzer. The child was severely abused. It could have been stopped a
whole lot sooner but wasn't because of wrong practices in the system.
One wrong practice is when the “authorities” (teachers, coaches, pastor,
Sunday school teacher, extra-activity instructor – example “cub scouts”)
see signs of abuse, they can't or won't act promptly. They also may
be ignorant at how to know what to do! Why couldn't the Principal or
Teacher ask the lunch thief what he has been eating? What did you have
for breakfast? What did you have for supper? Did you have enough? Why
not…etc? Why wasn't he asked?
Next is the social worker. The social worker gets brushed
off so easily by just a couple of correctly answered questions. Kenosha
is not immune to that. The child is in a strain to talk with the
mother right there, and fear of the unknown if he answers something
wrongly to face the fury of the mother later. Why couldn't the child
be questioned alone? Is focus on the Mother's rights or is it on
the Child's rights? If it is innocent without any child abuse, what
harm would there be in isolating the child before thoroughly questioning
And the third area is the silencing of the father. If this
country would support equal right for women this might not have happened.
But the imbalance of giving women superior rights creates a flaw
in the system to allow this particular case to happen. If the father
was suspected by the mother to be squealing on her, the system allows
her to have the power to throw him into jail regardless of the
truth. The system leans very hard to that the woman is almost always
the abused and therefore her story is right.
In Kenosha is there a Men's Horizon fighting for the victimized male?
NO! And when there is an abused child involved, who gets contacted?
Is it not the “The Women's and Children's Crises Center”? Children
come secondary in listing and of importance too! Why can I say that?
Because I have……..My Experience!
Teachings of a Church Cult
Parents need to discipline children at a very young age to change the
carnal nature before it grows up and defies God. The child gets the
start of their training when still in the crib. As it grows, punishment
needs to increase in force and duration. Typical discipline of the
child is to receive a swat for every year of their age. But the barbaric
additive in their teaching is that the discipline doesn't begin until
the child willfully lays over the bed, chair, toilet, etc…Any wrestling
and swatting to submit into that position is extra and not part of
the discipline. If it is a very fearful child, his punishment could
last for hours with several hundred swats. I experienced that!
Cult Experience #1 For about 3 years I sat behind
Sue O'Shea, the Pastor's wife and witnessed things that made me cringe.
Uncountable times I witnessed her take a stick and beat her 2 and 3
year olds across the top of their hands, for falling asleep in Church
Service. That is not punishment but cruelty. If they cried due to the
pain, Sue would take her crying child and really work them over downstairs.
Pat & Sue O'Shea
returning from Church, my wife would tell me she had changed one of
the little O'Shea's diaper, and stated they had black and blue bottoms.
Cult Experience #2 My wife was caught up in obeying
the Cult in whatever they taught, and still is. Several times I cam
home to notice one of my children missing. Upon inquiring about it,
I get told that the child wouldn't submit to my wife and was my responsibility
to punish them. I get told they are waiting for me in the bathroom.
I go in there and start inquiring the child (usually my Suzy) of
what happened. Did you submit and lay across the toilet? NO! Did
mommy hit you? Yes. My wife had randomly hit her body parts as she
was sheltering herself with the toilet and arms. What did you do
wrong? I didn't eat my lunch. At noon? Yes! So you sat in here since
noon? Yes! It was 6-8 P.M. when I came home from work. She sat in
the bathroom half a day! I told her to scream while I softly tapped.
I felt she was punished enough. My wife discerned what was happening
and told Pastor O'Shea. He called me in his office and forcefully
reproved me. It was all part of events which led to eventually telling
my wife to leave me.
Cult Experience #3 Several times I witnessed my wife
grab a wooden spoon, ruler, stick, shoe, clothes hanger, or anything
she could take, and then work over a child in fury. One night I went
to bed and fell asleep. Suddenly I awoke for my children were crying
and screaming. My wife had sent my children “to get their pajamas on”.
The children obeyed and then started playing and waiting for her
to call them for the evening story reading she did often. It was
about ten o'clock in the night and the children were supposed to
have known according to her to have gone to bed. They didn't know
that and were surprise-attacked by a mother in fury. The screaming
and pleading of the children awoke me. I was fear struck, too horrified
to do anything because Pat O'Shea would break up my marriage if I
stopped Shereen (my wife) from abusing my children. I witnessed as
my wife grabbed little Bethany and spanked her in fury. Then one
after another the little ones got spanked. It was not in love but
beat them in a fury to vent her anger. I remember talking with Rachel
(about 12 years old) the next morning and she stated she avoided
most of the blows. I remember watching her through the door jumping
from one side of the bed to the other while mommy had to run around
the bed each time. I am thankful she didn't insist on the teachings
of the cult that time. But I grieve thinking about the little ones
that did get abused for not understanding that they should have gone
to bed. I froze in a predicament because of the cult and Women's
“equal” (superior) rights.
Cult Experience #4 The
worst case of bruises I ever saw on anyone was on my child Stephen
(age 5 then). We as a family were at the Ohio Church camp meeting.
The services last about 2 hours. We just started to sing when I noticed
Steve and Mommy missing. About 15 minutes later my wife returned and
said she needed help spanking Steve. Inside of me the turmoil of fear
started. I tried finding a way of escape. I asked if she spanked him
some already. She answered that Steve has not submitted to the way
the Church taught. Then she told me if I don't go with her right now,
then she would go to the ministry. I was trapped. My marriage was
over or I must help Shereen beat my child. I reluctantly went with
her to the cabin. At the cabin I pleaded with my 5 year old Steve to
submit to this teaching. He couldn't and it was my job to wrestle and
pin him down. My wife started beating him 20-30 times. I released him,
but still Steve couldn't submit. I pinned him again and she beat him.
This beating and releasing continued for about 2 hours. Church service
was out when we finally were finished, and he broke. I was devastated
to witness this and blackmailed into it. The next day was when I saw
the damage that was done. he was one mass of black and blue from almost
his belt level down to the back of his knees. Inside to this day I
am furiously crying at how much power that Barbaric, demonic cult has
to influence people. Why didn't I rather choose to stick up for the
child? I couldn't! There was no evidence before the beating and therefore
she would automatically get the children, and I, the “Dave Pelzer Father”
would be isolated without my children, for trying to protect them.
I still grieve at what Steve looked like when I gave him that shower.
The Suzy's bathroom
experience was later, which is why I let her go. However it led to
Pat O'Shea first reproving me for not beating my children anymore,
which led to him telling my wife to leave me. It was quite a price
I paid to not see my children anymore (or one and one-half days a
month) because I violated the Church's abusive discipline rules,
except they call it good submissive rules. I would never know if
they got abused now, because I wait another month for each day and
a half just to see them.
Cult Experience #5 The
Church or Pat O'Shea was calling me in his
at least monthly for breaking some church rule. The home schooling
was taken out of my hands (quiet, passive force) and became an illegal
private school. We signed home school papers with the State of Wisconsin
which stated “one family unit only”. O'Shea for themselves needed
to also sign the paper for Wisconsin, but instigated a church-member
private school therefore lying by signing that it is “one family”.
Since Pat was on my trail to end my marriage as soon as he could
find just cause, I figured I would give permission for discipline
to my children if there is a behavior problem. I heard a few times
that they got disciplined but didn't think much about it. After my
wife left me and moved into Pat O'Shea's house with five of my children,
I questioned my two boys that are with me, what kind of discipline
they received. They told me that Pat O'Shea had made a paddle that
was about one inch thick by six inches wide by eighteen inches long.
It resembled a breadboard with a handle on it. They had to bend over
and grab their ankles while Pat beat them with that paddle usually
for not doing their school work on time. Sue O'Shea beat my oldest
boy for thinking something was funny and laughed. She made him put
his hands against the wall and beat him with that paddle. I had witnessed
Pat beat other children too! I turned all this information in to
the Police and Juvenile Center. Nothing could be done because there
were not any bruises left, and a year had gone by for the statute
of limitations, and that I had given permission. Permission? That
bone-braking device is not discipline, what's next, a meat cleaver?
and for laughing? But no Justice anyway, not in Kenosha!
HELPFUL HINTS For COMMITTING CHILD ABUSE in KENOSHA
1.) Be a woman – Authorities believe your story better.
2.) Have a Church back you up that is capable of lying by omission.
3.) If questioned always tell them that it was over a year ago. Limitations!
4.) Find out who squealed on you, and get rid of them, remove them. After
you pass the authorities' questioning, you can pick up your practice
of abuse again. Kenosha won't allow random checks because of invasion
of privacy. And if the squealer is no witness anymore, he wouldn't have
insight to tip the authorities for new abuse instances.
5.) Dress your children overly modest so the bruises are hid always.
6.) Home School so they won't have scrutiny from outsiders in Public
7.) Isolate yourself from others.
8.) Soak them in Epsom Salt if there is bruises.
Enjoy. Sick but true in Kenosha, It happened!
